Bat Duel: 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR vs. 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR

Bat Duel 11222013

Two-piece composite designs are renowned for their long-lasting durability and powerful punch. We matched two of the top fully composite BBCOR picks head-to-head. Ladies and Gentleman, welcome to the main event: the 2014 Easton MAKO vs. the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Bat Duel.2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR

Hitting out of Van Nuys, California and new to the scene in 2014, the Easton MAKO is the latest and greatest model from Easton. The two-piece composite design features the brand new TCT™ Thermo Composite. Paired with Easton’s tried and proven ConneXion™ Technology, the MAKO will have a great feel on contact. The 31/32” handle is wrapped with Easton’s Performance Diamond Grip for ultimate comfort.

MAKO: Keys to Victory
The Easton MAKO shares a key component with its namesake, the mako shark: speed. Featuring Easton’s revolutionary new TCT™ Thermo Composite, the MAKO is ultra-lightweight, allowing for an extremely balanced swing weight with a massive sweet spot. This enables hitters to drastically increase swing speed, which ultimately generates more power at the plate.

Weight Distribution: Extremely Well-Balanced

Design: Two-Piece Fully Composite

2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR

Hitting out of Hillsboro, Oregon and following a long line of successful models, the DeMarini CF6 is DeMarini’s champion. Similar to its predecessors, the CF6 still features a two-piece composite design. The 2014 model is comprised of Paradox Composite for their lightest swinging bat yet. Within the barrel, DeMarini uses Doublewall technology in order to give this bat both the largest possible sweet spot and maximum trampoline effect. The Paradox Composite in the handle is stiffer than in years past, allowing maximum energy transfer from bat to ball.

CF6: Keys to Victory
In 2014 the CF6 has been revamped with DeMarini’s groundbreaking D-Fusion Technology. Combined with the Carbon Reinforced Paradox Composite Handle and Thermo-Fused Taper, the D-Fusion technology severely reduces vibration on contact and redirects energy on mishits back into the barrel. This results in a bat with the smoothest possible feel on contact.

Weight Distribution: Well-Balanced

Design: Two-Piece Fully Composite

Both models are BBCOR certified and legal for use in high school and collegiate baseball. The MAKO and the CF6 are both backed by a 12 month warranty from their respective manufacturers.

One thing is for sure, both the Easton MAKO and DeMarini CF6 are top of the line when it comes to performance and comfort at the plate; but there can only be one winner. That’s for you to decide. Give us your feedback and let us know which bat you prefer!

2014 DeMarini Vendetta C6 Fastpitch

2014 DeMarini Vendetta C6 FastpitchContinuing with their dominant line of Fastpitch Bats, DeMarini has released the 2014 Vendetta C6. The Vendetta features a two-piece design that features their signature C6 Composite barrel and a blended hybrid composite handle.

The Vendetta’s secret weapon lies in the bat’s C6 Composite barrel. The C6 Composite is designed with a wider composite weave that is tuned perfectly to create a single-wall barrel that provides maximum trampoline effect. The Vendetta’s Internal Rails hybrid handle is constructed of two distinct composite materials. The softer outer material provides cushion on impact. The strategically inserted composite support rails add stiffness to the handle, allowing you to maintain a consistent and optimal swing. The Internal Rails hybrid handle allows the barrel to have an enormous sweet spot!

The Half and Half technology used in the making of the Vendetta C6 gave DeMarini the ability to redistribute the bat’s weight, thus giving it an extremely balanced feel. A balanced feel will give you the ability to swing your bat quicker with less effort, resulting in more power!

The 2014 DeMarini Vendetta C6 comes in a -12 length to weight ratio and is approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF.

DeMarini Pro Maple Wood Bats

DeMarini Pro Maple Wood Bat
DeMarini has built a reputation for producing great bats for great players. Now you can swing a professional grade, one-piece wood bat from DeMarini’s Pro Maple Series.

Made from only the highest quality select Maple stock, this bat will have that perfect stiff feel for optimum energy transfer and long-lasting durability. To further increase durability, DeMarini has hand-finished the Maple to seal the grain. All four models in the series are ink dot tested to show the pro level quality of the Maple grain.

The Pro Maple Series has turn models catered specifically toward your style of play. The DX248 has a medium knob, with a thin handle that has a medium taper to a smaller barrel. The 248 has a non-cupped end and a balanced feel, making it a great option for contact hitters who are looking to increase control and bat speed.

The DX348 has a medium knob and handle for comfort. The medium handle tapers evenly to the long barrel for a massive, ultra-responsive sweet spot. The 348 is non-cupped and has a slightly end loaded swing weight, making it a great option for power hitters. Both of these turn models come in a black and natural finish options and have a -3 length to weight ratio. They are BBCOR certified, making them legal for high school and collegiate play.

2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR Pre-Sale Starts Today!

DeMaini CF6 Pre-Book
It’s finally here! The all new 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR has arrived and is ready for you to step up to the plate and swing away. Similar to its predecessors, the CF6 still features a two-piece composite design and an incredibly balanced swing weight. On the contrary, its design is also what makes the CF6 so much better than ever before.

DeMarini’s Paradox Composite barrel and handle have helped make the CF6 their lightest swinging bat yet. Paradox Composite is both lighter and stronger than previous composite designs due to the material’s random and naturally chaotic fusing of carbon fibers. The stronger composite design allows the CF6 to have a more even weight distribution – leading to even more bat speed. Within the barrel, DeMarini uses Doublewall technology in order to give this bat both the largest possible sweet spot and maximum trampoline effect. The Paradox Composite in the handle is stiffer that in years past, allowing maximum energy transfer from bat to ball.

The most drastic change between the CF5 models of last season and the new CF6 is the bat’s D-Fusion Technology. Combined with the Carbon Reinforced Paradox Composite Handle and Thermo-Fused Taper, the D-Fusion technology severely reduces vibration on contact and redirects energy on mishits back into the barrel. The CF6 will definitely have the smoothest feel of any bat on the diamond.

To best serve you, we have made the all new 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR model available for pre-sale today! These bats will be ready for shipment on November 1st. Upon registering for the CF6 pre-sale, we will automatically upgrade your shipment to 2nd Day Air so you won’t have to wait to take your bat out for a few rounds of BP.

JustBats.com’s Most Popular Bats of August

augustsmostpopular
Today, we’ll be looking at the most popular baseball bats of August from each category: BBCOR, Senior League, Youth and Junior Big Barrel.

BBCOR
MAKO BBCOR
The 2014 Easton Mako BBCOR is the latest and greatest addition to Easton’s lineup. The bat’s two-piece composite design features Easton’s ConneXion™ technology, giving the Mako optimized energy transfer and reduced vibration for a smooth feel on contact. Easton’s new Thermo Composite Technology (TCT) is engineered to provide top-notch players with unmatched bat speed and a massive sweet spot. While the Mako features an extended barrel like the Easton XL Series, it also features an overall balanced feel like the Easton S Series – making it perfect for both power and contact hitters.

Senior League
VEXXUM SL
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum Senior League is also new for 2014. It is a two-piece bat with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The X10 Alloy utilized to make the barrel and C6 Composite handle combine to give the Vexxum the largest possible hitting surface. The C6 Composite material in the handle features a wider weave, giving the bat more flex and a greater trampoline effect upon contact. The Vexxum is one of the most balanced bats on the market and is ideal for players looking to improve their swing speed. This model comes in a -10 length to weight ratio, has a 2 ⅝” barrel and features the new USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp.

Youth
MAKO YOUTH
Given the fact that the Little League World Series takes place in August, it is no surprise that our most popular Youth bat is the 2014 Easton Mako Youth. The Youth model of the Mako is similar to the BBCOR model in that it is a two-piece fully composite bat that features Easton’s ConneXion™ technology and Thermo Composite Technology (TCT). This bat comes in a -11 length to weight ratio and features a 2 ¼” barrel. Its low M.O.I. translates into even quicker swing speeds. It is approved for play in Little League, Babe Ruth, Dixie, Pony, AABC and features the new USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp.

Junior Big Barrel
VEXXUM JBB

The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum Junior Big Barrel is a two-piece bat that combines an X10 Alloy barrel with a C6 Composite handle. The X10 Alloy used on the barrel is finely-tuned and shaped to create the thinnest possible walls, keeping the weight of the bat down and opening up the sweet spot. The C6 Composite handle works in unison with the alloy barrel and is specifically tailored for the single wall construction of the Vexxum. This bat comes in a -10.5 length to weight ratio, has a 2 ¾” barrel, and features the new USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp.
