Pros:  Hits the .44/375 SB12 really well, no break-in period, hitting well right out of the wrapper. Very end loaded (which I like).

Cons:  Durability may be an issue, same barrel as the Raw Steel, which I've already dented/cracked 3 other bats already (using SB-12's, which feel like hitting a wet sock after a few innings). Got the Raw Steel instead of the white this time, as the DeMarini rep said the Raws were holding up better.

Pros:  Nice grip, good pop, with great sound.

Cons:  I wish the grip was like the 2012 Raw Steel. The 2013 has different grip. I am impressed with the grip but it's not as long as the 2012.

What is better to buy/use? The DeMarini White Steel or the DeMarini Raw steel? I see many teams in my league have the White Steel but don't think I've seen any Raw Steels.

The DeMarini White Steel is an older balanced model. The DeMarini Raw Steel is the new 2013 model and will have more of an end load. The newer Raw Steel would be better for a power hitter.

How does this bat hold up to a .44/375 ball? Should I be looking at an older model bat and if so do you sell prior year models?

The 2013 DeMarini Raw Steel: DXRAW Slow Pitch can be used with .44/375 balls.

I just wanted to make sure that this is a singlewall bat and has no composite in it. We play in a singlewall league and have a few cry babies that complain about everything, so I just wanted to double check on it. thanks for your time

The 2013 DeMarini Raw Steel: DXRAW Slow Pitch bat is definitely a single-wall bat and it does not have any composite materials.

I'm interested in buying this bat but it gets me nervous because everyone says they crack easy. Is this product reliable?

Based on the number of units sold so far, the 2013 DeMarini Raw Steel: DXRAW Slow Pitch bat actually has slightly above average durability. However, if it does dent or crack, it will be covered under a full 12 month warranty through DeMarini, and DeMarini is very reliable when it comes to the warranties on their bats.

Our league requires that bats are 2004 ASA approved. I see this bat is 2013 ASA approved, but does it still meet 2004 ASA specifications?

The 2013 DeMarini Raw Steel: DXRAW slow pitch bat does feature the new ASA stamp. If your league uses the higher compression softballs (44 or 47 COR), I would suggest using a bat with the 2004 ASA stamp. Because there are many variations of league rules, it is always best to check with a league administrator for an Approved Bats List.

Are these bats temperature sensitive like the older versions? In my experience in the northeast, we can't use these bats until we reach 65 degrees. This would also include the White Steel.

Typically single wall bats like the 2013 DeMarini Raw Steel: DXRAW Slow Pitch are more likely to dent in colder temperatures. This is because the ball becomes harder in colder temperatures and can damage the alloy material. We recommend not using the 2013 DeMarini Raw Steel: DXRAW Slow Pitch below 55 degrees.

Which is a better bat, the 2013 Steel, or 2013 Raw Steel?

Both the 2013 DeMarini Steel: DXWHI Slow Pitch bat and the 2013 DeMarini Raw Steel: DXRAW Slow Pitch bat will have 13" barrel Lengths and 2 1/4" barrel diameters. They will also have End-Loaded Swing Weights and be approved for the same sanctioned leagues. Both will have the Hybrid Comfort Grip and N2M End Cap. Both will have Single Wall Construction designs and be made of Two-Pieces. The Steel will have an Alloy Barrel and Composite Handle. While the Raw Steel will have an Alloy Barrel and an Alloy Handle. Both bats will have the new ASA Stamp. Both are great choices it just depends if you prefer a composite or alloy handle feel.

Description for DeMarini Raw Steel Slow Pitch Softball Bat: DXRAW
New for 2013! The new DeMarini Raw Steel is built to give you RAW POWER! Featuring a barrel that is made completely from STEEL, this bat has the combination of durability and performance that power hitters are always seeking. The single wall design of the 13" barrel gives it the pop to compete with the best bats on the field, while the new MIL.SPEC.STL steel provides superior dent resistance. The barrel is noticeably end loaded to give players additional power behind each swing. The handle on the Raw Steel is made from DeMarini's SC4 Alloy. This alloy gives the Raw Steel a stiff, powerful feel while working in unison with the Half and Half construction to provide a smooth swing without any feedback. This Half and Half design also creates the largest, most responsive sweet spot by unnoticeably flexing before impact and recoiling with a burst of ball-launching energy! The DeMarini Raw Steel is topped off with an N2M End Cap that muscles out power from every inch of the bat and decreases vibration by ensuring that all energy is transferred to the barrel! On the other end, a Hybrid Comfort Grip gives players ultimate comfort and tack. This season, feel the RAW POWER of STEEL! DeMarini: Born Hardcore! The Raw Steel features the new ASA stamp and is approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, and ISA. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
