Pros: BALL COMES OF BAT HOT! DAUGHTER PLAYS 16/UNDER A-BALL AND SHE LOVES IT.SEVERAL GIRLS ON HER TEAM ARE USING IT AND LOVE IT! GIRLS KEEP ASKING THEIR PARENTS TO BUY THEM THEIR OWN. MY DAUGHTER HAS USED THE BAT IN 4 TOURNAMENTS AND HER BATTING AVERAGE HAS IMPROVED TO AROUND .480 WITH 6 HOME RUNS.
Pros: No matter where you get the ball, it's a great hit with this bat. I am short but also a power hitter. I usually use a DeMarini CF4 -9, but I used this bat in three tournaments and hit over 10 doubles to the fence. It swings with ease like a 32.
Pros: Really great pop off the bat and minimal break in time. My daughter is a very strong 12 year old and she was hitting the ball to the fence with it's first use. We only use this bat in the game and use the old bat for practice. Her old bat was the Easton Synergy Speed, good but not as good as this.
Cons: No cons with this bat but I have seen the previous year 2012 CF5 break a few times. I hope that this 2013 does not have that issue. My daughter and I love this bat and only use it for games (NO Practice).

Has this bat become illegal? I play softball at a junior college and my coach has told me that it isn't on the approved bat list. Is this true? I bought this bat less than a year ago for full price and I would really like to get more use out of it!
Asked by Emily
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 (DXCFP) Fastpitch model is approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. It can also be found on page 2 of the approved bat list most recently updated by the NCAA. A link to that list is: https://sup.arbitersports.com/Groups/104484/Library/files/NCAA_Approved_Softball_Bat_List.pdf
That being said, the rules within your Junior College league may vary from these. The CF5 is, in general, a widely accepted and used model.
My daughter is 5' 7" 120 lbs and not a power hitter. What size and what type of bat would you recommend?
Asked by Mike
The 2013 DeMarini CF5: DXCFP Fastpitch is a great option for a contact hitter, as it's a balanced two-piece fully composite bat. We recommend a 33" for a player your daughter's size.
My daughter is 13 and 5'8" and about 145 lbs. She has a 32" 19 oz. bat currently. Would you suggest staying with a 32" or moving up to a 33"? Thank you

Two years before founder Ray DeMarini started his own company in 1989, he was hired by ESPN as the advisor and host of a series of instructional softball videos. To this day, Ray DeMarini's Reflex Hitting System is still ESPN's most successful home video.
Taking his expertise and credibility to his self-named company, DeMarini made headlines in 1993 with the world's first multi-wall bat, the Doublewall. Innovation hasn't let up since, as the company continues to be a trend-setter in baseball and softball bats.
In 2000, DeMarini joined forces with Wilson Sporting Goods to develop the .... read more
Description for DeMarini CF5 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFP
New for 2013! The queen of diamonds returns to rule softball fields everywhere again this season! The DeMarini CF5 was born hardcore and built for damsels that CAUSE distress! The CF5 features a two-piece composite design with a balanced swing weight for increased swing speeds! The new CF5 uses all new technology to produce a finished product that can do some serious destruction! By constructing the CF5 using their new TR3 F.L.O. Composite, DeMarini has successfully created their lightest swinging bat yet. TR3 F.L.O. (which stands for Fused Layer Optimized) is a cutting edge material that is the result of the random and naturally chaotic fusing of carbon fibers. This creates a more compact carbon that enables DeMarini to make the new CF5 lighter and stronger than ever before. DeMarini's Half and Half two-piece technology makes YOU stronger by silencing feedback on off-center hits and creating the largest, most responsive sweetspot by flexing before impact and recoiling with a burst of ball-launching energy! The CF5 also features a Geo End Cap that's focus is on keeping the barrel stiff and not letting energy escape through the end of the bat. This gives each and every hit an extra blast of energy. DeMarini: Born Hardcore! The CF5 is approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
