New for 2016! Much more than a new number, the new DeMarini CF8 is set to impress! The CF8 Slapper is the newest addition to the CF line of bats. Designed specifically for left-handed hitters who primarily "slap" or bunt the ball to reach base, the Slapper provides a lower MOI and longer barrel when compared to the DXCFP model. The lighter swing weight and larger hitting surface allow slap hitters to better manipulate the barrel of the bat through the hitting zone which is invaluable because of their unique hitting style. However, do not believe for a second that this bat can only put the ball on the ground! With the -10 length to weight ratio, the WTDXCFA has enough mass to drive the ball to all parts of the field. Another special design tailored for a slap hitter is found in the grip. Most bats feature grips that are oriented for right handed hitters, so left handed hitters might find that their grips don't last as long. With the CF8 Slapper, the grip is flipped and the player doesn't have to worry about the grip bunching up or ripping over time. Being a CF8, this bat will also utilize DeMarini's new Paradox Plus+ Composite material in the barrel and handle to increase the sweet spot and power potential. New to this year's CF line, the D-Fusion 2.0 handle technology eliminates vibration even more efficiently than the previous model on off-center hits. By reducing these vibrations, the player's hands are protected against sting and energy is redirected back into the barrel on contact for a solid feel and more power! The CF8 features DeMarini's Stacked Double Wall Construction that optimizes the trampoline effect across the entirety of the barrel for the highest performance fastpitch regulations will allow! The CF8 Slapper WTDXCFA is approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. Backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. DeMarini: Born Hardcore! Free Shipping!
