DeMarini CF5 Fastpitch Bat Review

DeMarini CF5 2013For fastpitch softball players during the 2013 season, no bat was as highly acclaimed as the DeMarini CF5. This bat was often sold out for many retailers around the country and is currently available at a closeout price.

While DeMarini has released a new line of 2014 bats including the CF6, the CF5 is a perfect bat to get for next season. What are some of the best features of this bat and why would it be a great addition to your bat bag?

The DeMarini CF5 bat comes with a -10oz. weight drop and currently comes in a 33 inch model. This bat was constructed with two pieces of composite material and was designed to give you a balanced swing throughout, allowing for the quickest speed through the zone. The actual composite material DeMarini used with this bat was the TR3 F.L.O., which is also known as Fused Layer Optimized. This material is one of the lightest available to DeMarini and because of that, is one of their lightest models. The TR3 F.L.O. material was created after fusing together carbon fibers, making a lighter, but durable material.

One thing DeMarini bats are known for is the Half and Half technology used to combine their multiple part bats. This technology silences the feedback you would get from many other bats and this also creates a massive sweet spot that will allow you to hit the gaps with ease. The end cap the CF5 was made with is Geo and the main task for this end cap is to stiffen up the barrel and prevent energy from leaving the bat from this area. By keeping all the energy in the bat, you are getting extra power with each swing.

The DeMarini CF5 bat is complete with a black, white, red and grey color scheme that allows it stand out when leaning on the fence of your bench. It also has a 2 ¼” barrel diameter and is approved for use in many leagues around the country including ASA, ISF, ISA and NSA. The bat comes with a one year manufacturer’s warranty and is hot out of the wrapper, making it perfect for spring ball.

Demarini Softball Bats for All Leagues: Wood, Aluminum and Composite

DeMarini stands outDeMarini is a brand that stands out and is known by baseball players in just about every slow pitch softball league in the country. As the sport of softball continues to gain in popularity, each year thousands of players take to the fields. Whether you are playing in wood bat, ASA, SSUSA or USSA leagues, DeMarini makes great softball bats for everyone.

What are some of the best DeMarini softball bats for each league?

Composite Bats

The 2014 DeMarini CL 22 is a brand new bat that was designed from scratch for Chris Larsen, one of the most popular slow pitch softball stars in the country. Made with two pieces, the bat features a huge sweet spot, has the ultimate end loaded feel and when contact is made, feels as though it was constructed with a single piece.

Wood Bats

For players that need a wood bat for their softball league, the DeMarini Pro maple composite bats could be perfect. The barrel itself is made of high grade maple wood that is made to withstand swings from the entire team night after night. These bats have composite handles and are BBCOR approved. Be sure and check that your league allows composite handle construction.

Aluminum Bats

The 2013 DeMarini Raw is one of the best models you can get for use in aluminum ASA leagues. This bat is end loaded and is hot right out of the wrapper. Make sure to use this bat above DeMarini’s suggested temperature range (55+) because at below 55 degrees, softballs are harder and it can dent the bat. This model comes in three weights, 26, 28 and 30 oz. making it a perfect bat for any user.

Senior League

A lot of senior slow pitch leagues require different bats than the ones used in open leagues. With that in mind, DeMarini’s The One was designed to help allow everyone to reach the fences or beyond. Be sure to check with your league requirements on bats because this model is not eligible for use in ASA or USSSA leagues. If you play in a SSUSA league, the bat, made with a composite handle and barrel, this bat will make you feel like a teenager again.
