Pros:  Bought this bat to replace my daughters Xeno! She loves it, great balanced swing and the ball trampolines off the bat, even her miss hits off the sweet spot created base hits. All around great bat money well spent!

Cons:  None!

Pros:  Nothing bad to say yet. My daughter was using an Easton Synge 30/18.5 She said the bat feels lighter than her Easton. CF6 31/20 she's crushing the ball. Added so much more pop. the Easton was a very good bat. Definitely no comparison. This bat is perfect for her. 10 years old 4'9" 100 lbs. She will have this for a couple of years.

Cons:  Expensive, but I think I bought it at the right time. So two years should give us our money back in the long run.

Pros:  Bought the 2012 and 2013 CF5 -11. The 2012 was the hotter bat compared to the 2013 model. The new CF6 is a very impressive bat. Watching my daughter hit with it makes me believe it is hotter then the 2012. She is tall but has a small frame and can easily bring her hands through the zone with more bat speed and power. The ball flies off the bat for deep line drives.

Cons:  Hope they fixed the durability with this model and will last longer then the 2012 CF5.

Pros:  Bought this bat last week for my daughter to replace her 1.5 year old Worth 454 legit light. She is 11 years old and 70 lbs., so it is hard to find a good bat for her to use in travel ball. So glad DeMarini came out with this drop 11, we got the 30/19 and she will still get about 2 years out of it. As a coach, I cannot stand a girl trying to swing a bat that is too big against 50+ mph pitches. My daughter fell in love with this bat at first sight and swing! She has been jacking the ball in the outfield and hitting nice line drives and hot grounders. In less than a week, she has at least 100 hits on it and you would never know it was right out of the wrapper! She also commented that it does not hurt as bad when you hit one off of the end like other bats. Thank you so much Demarini for finally making an amazing, well balanced bat for every age and size!

Cons:  The price was something to ponder over, but once I see how much my daughter loves this bat and is hitting just as well as any other girl on the field, the cost is not a concern!

Pros:  My daughter is 8, she has a CF5 and CF6. She gained about 10 to 15 yards and harder line drives. Went from barley hitting grass to putting them about 15 yards into it.

Cons:  Price wasn't great.

Pros:  My daughter is on a travel team and this bat is AWESOME!!! We buy all our bats from here and I never write a review. My daughter hit it to the fence 3 times during a tournament. This has been the best bat yet we have bought!!

Pros:  We are a DeMarini fan. We have had 9 total bats with the CF3, CF4, and CF5. The CF5 was the only -11 we have had until the CF6 -11. Very pleased with the CF6 so far.The hottest out of the wrapper of any. Will promise that! Has completely different sound and feel. Hope it hold up!

Cons:  None so far except price. Just came out so no discounts.

Pros:  Last year my daughter used the Vendetta and loved the feel and balance of that bat. We decided to upgrade this year to get more weight and 'pop' as she is a good contact hitter. Definitely see an improvement in distance and she didn't have to adjust her swing to any change in feel and balance.

Cons:  Not really a con, but the sound of this bat is distinctly different then the CF5.

Pros:  The ball jumps off the bat noticeably when driving the ball to the opposite field. The balance of the weight of the bat is flawless for a nice smooth swing.

Cons:  If I have to find a fault, it would be in the grip. Something like the boys Easton LX 1 would make this bat perfect +1

Pros:  Bought this bat for my daughter who's a slapper at the 18 gold level, she was looking for a light weight bat with lots of pop.. Nothing but good things to say and has now enlisted the "power slap" to her arsenal!!

Pros:  I bought this bat mid June for my daughter. She plays 8u, 4'6" and weighs 84 pounds. She has used the new fs3 and singe but neither compares to this. I bought her the 30" 19oz.This bat is much hotter with more pop! She also likes the grip better than the easton. She has gained at least 20 feet when she has a good solid hit. I normally do not write reviews but this is a great bat!

Cons:  The price was a little high but if your going to play use good equipment!

Pros:  Daughter plays 12U and has been leading off all summer, but bunting a majority of the time. First weekend of fall ball, double and triple along with three bunt singles. Nothing has changed in her swing, bat has some pop to it.

Cons:  Price, but worth it when it comes to her increase confidence at the plate.

Pros:  Tried 32/22 LXT, 31/21 CF5 INSANE, the one x when it was legal, the 2013 xeno (warranty replacement for one x), and a drop 10 versions of this bat that was given to my daughter by her demarini sponsored team... And so far besides the illegal one x this bat (cf6 drop 11) has had the best hits... Not to say I have noticed good pop on the purple Zeno at tournaments and I might just let my young one try the mako at batting practice for fun...

Cons:  It's a light bat so people might pass it up but my daughter is playing select 16u as a 13 year old and is really strong in upper body so adding bat speed has seem to be the best answer for her... She loves this bat

Pros:  Purchased bat for daughter after being victim to all other select teams using this bat and absolutely crushing the ball. With huge flaws in swing mechanics, the other girls still out hit most of those girls who have great mechanics but a subordinate bat. Daughter switched from a 2014 M2 Pride because I initially thought all otehr bats were too heavy for my 7 year old player. Researched and found the 17oz and I immediately made the switch. Out of the wrapper, OMG!!!!!!! Increased velocity by at least double of what we saw with the M2. Caused enough attention that other girls on team started using this bat and though it was too small for most, but they enjoyed absolutely crushing the ball!!!!

Cons:  One miss hit off of the end cap and the bat was sent (and still there 2 weeks later after demarini received it) in because of the dislodgment of the end cap. Warranty is in effect but the time it takes to repair bat is a big concern!!!!

Pros:  This bat isn't just for young softball players. My 17 yr old daughter plays both high school and 18A travel softball and uses this bat with fantastic results. My daughter does not have as strong an upper body as most girls her age and had some trouble catching up to 60 mph plus fastballs with a minus 10 bat. This was the answer, same composite as the minus 10 Demarini's, lighter weight allows for faster swing speed. Ball sails off this bat with short break in time. Daughter finished with a .611 batting avg. after the high school season and this bat was a big reason for it. Need faster swing speed, give this bat a try, you won' regret it.

Cons:  Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

Pros:  Good light, bat if you need swing speed.

Cons:  I have been through two of them in the past 4 months, the end caps starts to wiggle out then there is a gap between the cap and barrel. Then it starts cutting balls. If you hit a lot of balls off of the end of bat keep a check on the end cap.

Pros:  This bat is hot out of the wrapper \. However, my daughter has had this bat for 8 months and used it all winter it is just now breaking in. She is 11 and when we are in the cage her line drives move the L screen. She hits bullets that most infielders don't bother stopping. Batting average is through the roof.

Cons:  None. I would not recommend spending this much money for rec ball. If your daughter plays travel ball you know the drill its expensive.........

Pros:  Good pop!

Cons:  My 11 year old & a 10 year old team mate busted their brand new bats a week apart. One was maybe 3 weeks old & my daughter was only used in one tournament (was not even 2 weeks old) :( wish I could add a pic up here of my daughters. One more swing & it would have been in 2 pieces. It cracked all the way around. Scared to replace it with the same bat???!!! We also always keep our bats inside & not in the cold.

Pros:  hot right out of the wrapper!

Cons:  My 11 year old daughter almost broke her bat in half after 1 ball tournament & was using it at practice. One more swing & it would have been in half! Her team mate cracked hers after just 2 weeks also :( They have so much pop bc the barrel is so thin. We are replacing it with a Hope Edition 31/21. The one she broke was the Sprite bat 31/20. Hoping the 31/21 is made better!

Pros:  My 10 year old daughter has been using this bat during tournaments. She was using another players cf6 for several months. We decided to buy her own as she was doing well with it. Strait out of the box, with no use in practice yet, she batted 818 in the first tournament with some very hard line drives deep in the outfield. She has been in select ball since she was 5 and this is by far the best bat for performance she has ever owned. She has used miken freak, rain, halo, catalyst and 454 legit. They have nothing on this bat. She is tall and lanky with barley any muscle mass. Any help the bat gives is a huge pluse. Thank you De Marini

Cons:  None yet

Pros:  My daughter is the smallest player on both of her 12u teams, at 4' 10". My daughter just moved up from the zephyr and the bustos, bot -13. Well my daughter is a strong girl for her size so she can swing a 20 oz. and her old bats were too light and were dead. So at batting practice I noticed that she was ahead of the ball most of the time and when she did time it right, the ball just didn't fly like it used to. Well, my daughter had been researching bats recently, and originally she wanted another bustos, but I said she should upgrade, so we were thinking about getting the cf6, the xeno, the mako, the worth legit, the lxt, and possibly the vendetta. When I looked at the prices, the Mako and lxt were gone, and I thought vendetta all the way. But then my daughter said she needed a -12 or a -11. So, it was down to either the vendetta, the worth legit, or the Cf6. Well at the time the legit had only one very brief review that said, "Good bat!" So since we are weary at getting bats or

Cons:  What else? The price! CONTINUED FROM PROS anything that we hadn't seen in store before without reading reviews, we decided against getting that bat, since it was obviously less popular. So my daughter tried both the vendetta and the cf6, and while seeing my daughter hit with the cf6 I decided I would get it for her as a present. My daughter then used it at her first game right out of the wrapper, literally took off the wrapper at the field, and hit her first legitimate home run (a rocket to left field, hit the fence) in this higher level, as she is 11. Hard to imagine how hot this bat can get later! Thanks demarini! (By the way, get this bat at amazon if you want a good deal, for $210)

Pros:  We received the bat today. So we went to the nearest park to test it out. She hit 15 ball off the tee with her cf5 then she hit 25 balls with the new cf6. I'm not going to bore you with the details. But the balls were literally jumping off the bat. With this bat she is getting better range 8 to 15 feet.

Pros:  Never really considered buying a $200+ bat til my 10 yr old daughter hit with a friends CF6 over the winter months. Didnt really think it would make that much of a difference, but boy was I wrong. Bought her one for her birthday and now she is hitting 10-14+ feet further than before. If you want your child to get serious, then dish out the $$$ and get this bat.

Cons:  None so far.

Pros:  Hot bat , great feel ! If you want a Hot bat it comes at a cost . The hotter the bat the better the odds it will fail at some point . Our team understands that and we go thru them . Broke 2 this weekend and 5 in last 3 months . We use the CF6 and Xeno exclusively and they are equals IMO . Order this bat thru just bats.com and take advantage of their easy exchange policy ! Typically we have our bats back in 2 weeks . If you are strapped for cash and want this bat to last 2 seasons then you need to choose something other than the CF6 or Xeno . Go with the wood Louisville slugger ! Lol

Cons:  These bats will bust

Pros:  This bat has a lot of pop. My 7 year old is about to turn 8 in two weeks and she is tiny. She is supposed to be swinging a 26" or 27" but we got her the 28" and she is killing the ball. She would always get on base but now she's getting triples and home runs! She has been swinging Easton and Louisville Slugger since 4. Now were never going back.

Pros:  Bought this bat 32" 21 oz. for my 12u player. She was using a 2012, -11 CF5 that had tons of pop. This new bat sounds totally different. It has more of a click than a thud sound. Since it is new, and not broken-in yet I'm still holding out for better results.

Cons:  Im not totally convinced it’s as hot as the CF5. Barrel material seems harder and not as much bounce off bat.

Pros:  Everything about it, this bat is terrific, my daughter plays in tournament ball in Pa.. We recently had a Round Robin this past weekend. First time other than soft toss she used this bat was this game, pitcher threw a meatball down the middle, actually I think she went for a riser but didn't rise enough and my daughter put it over the fence. when she returned from running the bases, the next batter had it in her hand and so on and so on.... each one with solid shots around the field and hard shots in the infield. She and the team love this bat, a couple of the dads joked and said now they were going to have to buy there daughter one.

Cons:  Nothing, well maybe that the team wants to use it!!!!! Lol

Pros:  Very light bat for a faster swing. Something your daughter has to get used to after a couple of swings. Very good pop for a contact player. This bat is probably not for a power swinger as most of the weight is mid range. My daughter has been hitting over 2nd base if she catches it right in the middle. Some of our other girls have used it and hit off with no problems. My daughter is 11yrs 4"5 and about 90lbs.

My daughter is 5'6" 175 lbs what bat size would fit her

Based on your daughter's height and weight, I would recommend that your daughter swing a 33" bat. That would be a 33" 22 oz. in this DeMarini CF6 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFS.

My daughter is a 16 year old, 5'4", and 105 lbs. What bat size do you recommend? What bat would you recommend CF6 or CF8 DXCFP?

Based on her height and weight, I would recommend swinging a 31" length bat. Both the DeMarini CF6 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFS or the 2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFP are going to be great bats. The 2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFP is going to feature an upgraded composite material, as well as the D-Fusion 2.0 Handle technology. This technology is designed to help reduce vibration and re-direct energy back into the bat.

Is the DeMarini CF6 DXCFX Fastpitch Softball Bat, the same bat as the DeMarini CF6 WTDXCF Fastpitch Softball Bat?

Looking into the DeMarini CF6 Fastpitch Softball Bats that we have carried in the past, the only model showing up is the DeMarini CF6 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFS. The DXCFX would be a Youth Big Barrel Bat. Please advise what bat you are referring to.

My daughter is 14 and about 5'5, probably still growing. She plays travel and will be in high school next year. Want to buy her a bat for xmas. Was looking at the 2016 insane bat. Just not sure if a 33 or 34 inch would be better.

I would suggest getting your daughter the 2016 DeMarini CF8 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) in a 33" 23 oz.

The DeMarini CF6 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFS) is a great -11 bat and would be a nice option. The newer 2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFS) would have sizing options available that would be more size appropriate for her though.

My daughter is playing high school softball. She is 5'2" 152 lbs. What bat would you recommend?

The 2014 DeMarini CF6 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFS) would be a great option to check out, however, it has been discontinued from DeMarini. The new model is the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFS. These bats feature balanced swing weights, which is great for a contact hitter looking to work on bat speed and control. The two-piece design will create more flex on contact (when comparing it to a one-piece bat), which can create more of a whipping action that helps the head of the bat whip forward at the moment of contact, generating more inertia and power.

Based on your approximate height and weight, I would suggest a 32" in the 2014 DeMarini CF6: (DXCFS). This model is very high quality and will be top of the line in performance. I would highly suggest the 2014 DeMarini CF6: (DXCFS) or the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: (FPXN14-RR). Both of these have been very popular, and will be great for players looking to take their game to the next level.

My daughter is currently using the CF5 32/-11. It's starting to sound "funny" when she connects with certain balls. She is 5'4"/5'5" and weighs just over 105 lbs (x-small frame). She's hitting very well w/CF5 on her high school and summer travel softball team (line drives and outfield fences). Will the CF6 be a suitable replacement?

Yes, the 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFS) would be a great choice. The Paradox composite gives the bat an extra large sweet spot that should produce a lot of pop.

The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFS) would be an ideal fit for a high school player who is having trouble generating the right bat speed with a -10 length to weight ratio. This item is lighter but has an extremely similar Sweet Spot and the ability to produce power and distance.

My daughter is hitting with a Demarini Bustos 30 inch 17 ounce. She is 4 foot 10 and 95 pounds. She definitely needs a longer and heavier bat. Would this bat in a 32 inch 21 ounce size be too much of a jump for her?

In general, for a player of your daughter's height and weight, we would suggest a 31 inch bat. A 32 inch bat could still be an option but would be heavier. Jumping 2 inches in length and 4 ounces in weight will make the bat feel much heavier and would definitely be a big adjustment. If the current bat she has is much too light then it may be fine. Otherwise, we would suggest possibly looking into a 31 inch 20 ounce 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFS) bat or even a 31 inch 19 ounce of another bat.

The 2014 DeMarini CF6 Insane (DXCFI) It does have an end-loaded swing weight which means the bats weight will be towards the end the bat which goes well for power hitters.

Yes, a lighter bat would certainly allow you to achieve better bat speed. I would recommend the -11 if the current bat you are using feels too heavy, as that would allow for a 2 oz difference in weight whereas the 1 oz difference from the -10 might still feel too heavy.

My daughter is 15, plays 14U tourney ball, and now high school ball too. For the last three seasons she's used her 2012 LS TPS Catalyst: FP12C2 (31", 19oz, slightly end weighted) and has loved it, but it's time to consider a new bat. Size-wise she is about 5'3", 105 lbs. She's a good contact hitter with descent bat speed. I was looking at the 32" CF6 DXCFS and DXCFP bats - appropriate bat & length for her? Any real differences between the two besides the -11 vs. -10? Any reason one would be better between the two for her?

We typically recommend a -10 for a high school player. The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFS) is designed for younger players. We recommend a 32" 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFP). Both bats use the same quality composite materials. The only difference is the drop.

The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFS) is a lightweight bat and is typically better for a player that needs to increase their bat speed. The 2014 DeMarini CF6 Insane (DXCFI) is slightly end loaded, and is a good option for a player with fast hands.

Make sure to turn the bat a quarter of inch time each time to help open up the entire barrel. After the bat has been broken in, it will be ready to perform in a game setting.

My daughter now has the vendetta. Is the CF6:DXCFS comparable to what she has, or is it better?

My daughter is 5' 103 lbs and currently uses a 31" 19 oz. Would a jump to 32" 21 oz be too much of a jump? I'm looking for a suitable CF6. She is more of a contact/slap hitter.

Based on her height and weight a 31" is the suggested size, but a 32" will not be too much of a jump. The 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFS Fastpitch is a balanced bat and would be a great bat for a contact hitter.

I am about 5'4''. What length and weight should I get this bat in?

In order to get the appropriate sizing for you, we would need your height and weight. A general recommendation for your height is normally around 32 inches. This bat is a drop 11, so the correct weight based on the 32 inch length would be 21 ounces. For more information on sizing, you can visit our Bat Coach at http://www.softballbats.com/bat-coach/

The 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFS Fastpitch is a balanced bat and is designed for a contact hitter. The 2013 DeMarini CF5 Insane: DXCFI Fastpitch is end loaded, and better for a power hitter. To break-in a composite bat we recommend taking 100-200 swings off a tee or soft toss. Rotate the barrel about 1/4" each swings.

The 3 oz. jump in weight is outside of our recommendation for one year, but your daughter may be able to handle it. The CF6 has the same performance certification as the Bustos did, but the two-piece design will create more trampoline effect for a contact hitter.

My daughter plays H.S. ball as a freshman. She is not big (5' 2" and 117 lbs). She has extremely quick hands, but is not real powerful. She owns this bat, but a CF5 model from a year ago. She likes the bat still, but I know it will soon wear out. Do you think she should look into a -10? How much difference is there between the Insane's swing since it's end loaded?

The 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFS Fastpitch bat will have a very balanced swing weight; much like the CF5 model that she currently swings. The end load in the Insane model is definitely noticeable when compared to the other CF6 models. That end loaded swing weight is really designed for the high swing speeds of power hitters. If she has quick hands, but generally hits line drives, you may be better-off with a balanced model like the CF5 she has. The end load is not for everyone, and I would not trade the end load for bat speed. The length to weight ratio that a player chooses comes down to what they are most comfortable swinging.

Can you use this bat on a SKLZ hitting stick or a SKLZ Hurricane stick that swings when you hit it?

We do not recommend using any non-wood bat with hitting trainers like that. The "ball" of those hitting trainers is much more dense than a softball and could damage or shorten the useful life of your bat.

Would you recommend the DeMarini CF6 -11 or the Insane -10? I am 15 years old and have been playing for 8 years. I am 5'3" and weigh 155 pounds. I would get the length at 32".

If you are a power hitter we recommend the 2013 DeMarini CF5 Insane: DXCFI in a 32' 22 oz. If you need to increase your bat speed we recommend the 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFS Fastpitch.

I'm 14 years old and have been using a 31" -11.5. Would it be bad if i got a -11?

The 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFS Fastpitch bat is a very nice bat with balanced swing weight. Changing from a drop (-11.5) to a drop (-11) would not be a big difference if you were already swinging the (-11.5) well. You should do well with the (-11).

Is this bat better than the Xeno? I've used the Xeno and really like it, but I want something newer and better.

The 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFS Fastpitch bat will be two-piece fully composite in design. It will be very balanced in swing weight. It will be hot right out of the wrapper and ready to go from day one. These characteristics do resemble the 2013 XENO.

These are not even available yet. How are you selling them already? Are you selling fake bats?

The 2014 DeMarini CF6 Fastpitch softball bats were released in mid-April. We received them directly from DeMarini and I can assure you that they are the real deal and in no way fake.

Any issues using these bats on the "total control balls"?

Typically, we don't recommend using weighted softballs like the Total Control Ball with any bat, including the 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFS. Softballs or training balls with added weight like this can make the bat more susceptible to denting or cracking.

Should you use your game bat against a pitching machine using dimpled balls?

No, do not use the 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFS Fastpitch bat against dimpled balls. Only use against real softballs.

Description for DeMarini CF6 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFS
It's never too early to start crushing the ball! For the younger players that are taking their game seriously, DeMarini introduces their lightest CF6 of the season - the DXCFS. The CF series has been among the most popular bats on the softball field over the past several seasons. This year's CF6 is the hottest composite fastpitch bat out of the wrapper that DeMarini has ever produced. That's due to the all new Paradox Composite barrel and handle on this two-piece design. Paradox Composite makes the barrel stronger, while being scientifically shaped to feel softer on impact. This makes for a bigger, hotter, and more responsive sweet spot and consistently more powerful swings! The Paradox handle is designed stiff so that players can get an even better feel for the sweet spot, while continuing to produce a powerful, consistent swing. The CF6 features Stacked Double Wall Construction that creates a trampoline effect across the entirety of the barrel for completely optimized performance. At the end of the barrel, a Clutch End Cap dampens vibration for an incredibly smooth swing. If you've got a promising future and want a punishing present, it's the CF6 or nothing! DeMarini: Born Hardcore! The CF6 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!
