  • Overall Rating
Was this review helpful ? 11 3

Pros:  Good pop out of the box and even better as it gets broken in. My daughter is not a huge power hitter, but after putting this bat in her hands, she's got a lot more snap thru the ball at contact and the ball just flies off sweet spot. There is very little to no sting from bad hits off the end of the bat anymore. The end load gives the bat the feel of a -9 but with the weight and speed of a -10. At 13 yrs old, my daughtyer swings a 32/22 very well and she just loves the bat. And I love the paint scheme they came up with for 2013 as well. This is a hot hot bat!

Cons:  None so far.

Pros:  My daughter is 14, she is a great hitter but I have never seen her hit with the power she has hit with since she got this bat. I was concerned if she could get it around against the faster pitchers being end loaded and going from a 31" to a 32" but she has not had any problem.

Cons:  None.

I'm 5' 5", weigh 180 lbs. and a power hitter. What size bat do you suggest?

Based on your height and weight I would recommend a 34"/24 oz. DeMarini CF5 Insane (DXCFI). Its end loaded swing weight is perfect for a power hitter.

Description for DeMarini CF5 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFI
New for 2013! The queen of diamonds returns to rule softball fields everywhere again this season! The DeMarini CF5 softball bat was born hardcore and built for damsels that CAUSE distress! The CF5 Insane features a two-piece composite design with an endloaded swing weight so that it feels like a -10 with the punch of a -9! The new CF5 Insane softball bat 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 DeMarini CF5 Insane softball bat 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!
