Is this bat legal for USSSA tournaments after Sept 2014? It has a USSSA seal 1.20 BPF at bottom of the handle. What does the new seal say?
The 2012 DeMarini CF5: DXCFS Fastpitch will not be legal past September 1, 2014. The new USSSA 1.20 BPF stamp is a thumbprint located on the barrel of the bat. The 2013 DeMarini CF5: DXCFS Fastpitch has the new stamp and will be legal past September 1, 2014.
What's the difference between a CF5 and a C6?
The 2012 DeMarini CF5 features the TR3 Strut Composite material and stacked composite walls. The 2012 DeMarini Vendetta C6 features the C6 Composite material and Hybrid C-Grip. Both bats will have similar performance.
I just bought this bat. I called Demarini to ask if they could put the new stamp on it, but they won't. However, the customer service rep told me that the bat stamp enforcement will not start until 1 September 2014. The stamp is only for USSSA tournaments. ASA tournaments do not require the new stamp at this time. http://www.usssa.com/usssa/usssa-general/NewUSSSAFPSoftballBatMarks11-29-12.pdf

This extension applies only to USSSA Fastpitch sanctioned play and does not apply to USSSA Slow Pitch sanctioned play."
In 1992, DeMarini Sports had something to celebrate. The three-year-old company had climbed a rung on the proverbial ladder of success, moving its world headquarters from a dirt-floored barn to a slightly larger metal shack. "It was a big move for us," recalled Ray DeMarini from the batting cage of DeMarini Sport’s present-day Bat Industrial Complex. "The new shop was larger, more storm resistant, and -best of all- it had a heater." In the early days, DeMarini Sports hardly made a blip on the radar screen of softball.
