2013 DeMarini CF5 BBCOR: DXCFC Adult
Average Customer Review
this is the best bat I have ever used. I have iused the Easton s1 bbcor, the 2012 voodoo, combat b2, and none of those bats even compare to the cf5. I swung the cf5 and Easton s1 and they have about the same swing weight except the cf5 has a much bigger barrel. This bat makes a really cool sound when u hit the ball. Even if you don't hit tue ball on the sweet spot the ball still goes far! Worth every penny!
I gotta tell you, this bat, man, this is the bast bat I have ever used. This bat is extremely nice looking, and finally a bat that isn't over priced even at $400.00. This bat is not heavy at all, and hits like a BESR approved bat, not BBCOR. DO NOT buy the other CF5 because it is cheaper, this is a much better bat!
Nothing at all!
First off, everyone looking to buy a bat should know this is easily the best Demarini bat since the CF3 (one of my all time favorites, shame its illegal). This hits more like an old BESR because its composite, and its better any other BBCOR i've ever experienced, including all of the Easton Power Brigade series, the disappointing 2012 CF5, Voodoo, Nike, and the Easton Omen. Do NOT settle for the 2012 CF5 just because its cheaper, the new model is far in a way the best bat on the market right now. The grip is perfect, not too slippery, and the balance makes my 33"30' feel like a 32"29'. If you can afford a $400 bat, this should be your pick. Well played Demarini, you have set the bar high once again.
Very expensive, but still worth it
I just used the bat the other day for the first time. I didn't think much of this bat until I started to hit. This bat has amazing pop! I'm 13 and in junior league and I swung this bat easily. I've used the B3 , XL3 , and the Voodoo all in BBCOR models and by far , this is my favorite.
Bat is expensive , but well worth the price!
The appearance was what I liked initially plus the fact that I needed a more balanced bat to fit my needs. I got the bat for a birthday present and have been breaking it in and have only played on ball game with it. I Hit the ball fairly well but still getting use to these BBCOR bats. The more I use it doing tee work and other batting drills it's getting more broken in. I like the bat so far.
Paint chips easily and scratches, but don't all baseball bats if you are using them? Cost for my parents was an issue but if it allows me to maintain a good swing then they say it was worth it.
Balance, balance, balance. I have never used or picked up a bat with such a light swing weight. While the S1 is so renowned for their light swing weight, the CF5 is even more balanced. This bat flies through the zone and allows solid contact almost all the time.
Very difficult to get used to. Your timing gets slightly thrown off when your bat speed is so quick but after a week or so the ball started jumping off the bat.
One of the best bats I have ever swung. In my opinion, it's overall quality beats any other bat on the market. Large sweet spot, great pop, fantastic grip, and very well balanced. This bat is great for either a power hitter or a contact hitter like myself.
The bat just arrived in the mail and it is sooooooooo freaking awesome. The grip is the nicest ive seen. Its not too slick but not too rough. And, its perfectly balanced. Also, im so happy i dont have to worry about breaking it in. i couldnt stop smiling when i opened the package. I would definitely suggest this bat.
It came with a scratch but im not too concerned about that.
Amazing pop, nice feel to the handle, all the weight is toward the handle so you have no problem catching up & adjusting to different speed pitches because of the weight distribution. If you're a line drive/power hitter I would recommend this bat to you.
Break in period takes a while and hitting it off the end is unpleasant but all in all good bat.
Best bbcor bat I've used so far nice weight distribution perfect for the guys who need the extra bat speed but also perfect for line drive/power hitters like myself. Pop is amazing, it feels like you're not hitting anything. GET THIS BAT.
None except hitting it off the end of the bat is less than fun.
Bought it for my 13 and 14 year old sons and they love it. It's light, well balanced with lots of pop. I coach my sons Jr. league team and I see the bat in action everything day; they hit line drive after line drive with plenty of pop. I look forward their first game.
None as of yet...
This bat is amazing at has so much pop no matter where u hit the ball it wont sting a lot at all. Its very balanced i used the 33/30 yesterday it felt a lot lighter then 30 ounces. The price is a litte high but other then that its an amazing bat!
None at all!
Great bat.Looks cools and has so much pop almost a besr I have swung both Marucci bats and this is so much lighter. It feels like a drop 10. It may be expensive but it is so worth it. Don't buy the other cf5 because it is cheaper this is much better.
The only one is that it get dirty fast but that is easy to fix.
It was great for a few months and then went dead.... Florida heat? or poor product? lemon?
The warranty is a joke. The 3 reasons for returning are fine but if you purchase a "dead" bat or after a few months the bat goes flat/dead they will not accept it and your out $399.00 just like me. My son is 14 yoa; plays travel ball and high school. Easton will honor the customer!!!!
