Pros: My first two swings out of the wrapper with this bat I hit homeruns. I am a power hitter but was really impressed with the pop!
Cons: I took two rounds of batting practice in 62 degree weather only using .52/300 balls and this bat cracked badly. Now having to deal with mailing it back to DeMarini and hopefully getting it back to start the season. It cracked in a jagged spider web design. Good bat but have to be honest, wish I had spent my $299 on a different bat.
Pros: Great feel, great sound, hot out of the wrapper, CRUSHES the new 52/300 balls!
Teammate picked this stick up for upcoming season -- he hit it at BP, then brought it to us at team practice, and out of the wrapper, this thing is DEADLY! Love it. Swung it more than I swung my Fu Dawg..and I love my FD!
Cons: None that I can think of....I'm a simple kind of guy on graphics, so I think they could use a little work, so I gave it 4 stars..other than that, this stick is HOT!

Is this bat available in an end loaded version or only in balanced?
Asked by LanceG
The DeMarini Flipper Aftermath ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (DXFLS-V14) is only available in a balanced version. They did release the 2015 DeMarini Flipper Aftermath ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (DXFLA) and it features a slightly shorter barrel and as a result features a slightly end swing weight.
How will this bat do with a .44 core 400 compression ball? It will be a team bat, so only a couple have home run power on the team.
Asked by BigSMac
The DeMarini Flipper Aftermath ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (DXFLS-V14) is designed to hit the .52 core balls. With that being said hitting the .44 core balls could lead to early damage of the barrel.
Is there a difference between the 14 and 15 models and is this more of a balanced bat?
Asked by chris
The updates on the 2015 model of the DeMarini Flipper Aftermath ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (DXFLS-V14) are cosmetic updates and minor updates in the material of the bats to advance performance of the bat. This is a balanced bat.
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

This barrel design has never been tried before and is drawing rave reviews from players that have experienced it.
