Pros:  This and the J3 are the hottest ASA bats period. It's super hot and the ball just jumps off the bat.

Cons:  So hot the other team had never seen it and protested the bat. On the bright side, it passed the compression test.

I've been absolutely crushing 44 Cor balls with the black Aftermath. However, after about 150 swings, I'm noticing major peeling of outer skin along an increasingly visible "seam" (or is it a crack?). I've heard this problem is due to "harder" 44 Cor ball and wouldn't be as prevalent with new 52 Cor ball. True? Also, is the newer green Aftermath more durable?

Yes, the 2014 DeMarini Flipper Aftermath (DXFLS Slow Pitch) has a multi-wall barrel designed for high COR low compression balls. The 44 Cor balls would most likely not help the durability of this bat in the long run. The peeling you are seeing could be a seam or crack, I am uncertain. I would call DeMarini at 1-800-937-2287 and let them know. This bat has a 12 month warranty from DeMarini so a replacement can be shipped directly to you.

Why did this bat get discontinued?

The 2014 DeMarini Flipper Aftermath (DXFLS) was replaced by the 014 DeMarini Flipper Aftermath ASA (DXFLS-V14). The design is the only difference.

Is there a difference between the 2013 & the 2014 Flipper? Is it just the graphics?

The 2013 and the 2014 2014 DeMarini Flipper Aftermath (DXFLS) use the same quality composite and alloy materials. Both are very high performing and durable.

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 Flipper Aftermath Slow Pitch Softball Bat: DXFLS
When they said there was no magic bat, they lied. DeMarini is out to make perhaps its biggest splash ever in slow pitch softball. The all new DeMarini Flipper gives players optimum performance when hitting the new ASA low compression .52/300 balls! The Flipper achieves the pinnacle of high performance using an unconventional design with brand new technologies. The Flipper is built for power, as it features an ultra-stiff handle made from DeMarini's strongest metal, SC4 Alloy. The balanced barrel is constructed with Divergence technology that is exclusive to the DeMarini Flipper. With this design, two layers of composite materials sandwich an air gap to create a super responsive sweet-spot with maximum performance for High COR Low Compression balls! Not only is the sweet spot of the Flipper responsive, it measures in at a whopping 10 INCHES! This barrel design has never been tried before and is drawing rave reviews from players that have experienced it. Further increasing the responsiveness of the sweet spot and the stiffness of the bat, the Flipper features DeMarini's concave Dish End Cap that drives energy right toward the sweet spot for ultimate trampoline effect. As with all DeMarini bats, the Flipper has a Rotation Index near the end cap to remind players to rotate their bat for an even break-in. DeMarini: Born Hardcore! The Flipper is approved for play in ASA. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
