New for 2017! The leader in fastpitch is back and better than ever. Not only does it feature a new number but DeMarini has improved the most popular model in its class and continues to lead the pack with its advanced features. There is a reason more top college programs choose DeMarini than any other bat. The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFP is the most balanced swinging bat on the market so it's no wonder it is DeMarini's most popular stick! It all starts with the brand-new Paraflex Composite Barrel which offers 22% stronger carbon fibers compared to the Paradox+ Composite on last years model. This makes for less composite material needed allowing for the lightest swinging DeMarini bat ever! Additionally, it allows the composite material to lay more consistently creating a more responsive barrel, a massive sweet spot, and hot out of the wrapper performance. The D-Fusion 2.0 Handle Technology is back with a vengeance and still eliminates vibration on off-center hits while redirecting more energy into the barrel. This allows players to not worry about the possibility of sting and increases their confidence tremendously at the plate. With a two-piece composite design, a 2 1/4 inch barrel diameter, and a -10 length to weight ratio, the DXCFP will be approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFS is also covered by a full twelve (12) month manufacturer's warranty. DeMarini: Only the best... For the best! Get yours today with Free Shipping!
