Pros:  This bat has a little extra load up top, but is by no means a super heavy end loaded bat. It is perfect. When I say perfect I mean, unlike most super high end composites, it doesn't feel weightless. It has a little bit of extra meat on the bone and that extra meat helps me drive through the ball unlike any other bat i have ever swung. Of course I could swing an alloy that is naturally heavier up top, but then I wouldn't get the consistent barrel you find with a composite bat. In combo with the composite handle and connection piece this product is the best BBCOR I have swung so far. I have tried Velo, Mako, Cat6 (that bat is terrible and way too heavy) and many others and I have finally found the product that fits my style of swing best. Most kids will probably like the CF Zen as it is super balanced, but for the 3,4,5 spot hitters...this is your stick.

Cons:  I guess the only con is that it cost $450 but my parents bought the bat for me so it's not an issue I have to personally deal with. Just a few extra days cutting lawns earned me the best bat on the market.

Pros:  I love the way the ball sounds coming off this bat. I've used a DeMarini CF7 this last year. This bat has a better grip, the end load make if "feel" lighter. This bat has a lot more pop, If you get jammed off the handle, there's no sting with this bat. Noticeable improvement from the CF7. Love the end loading.

Cons:  If it was any better it would be illegal.

Pros:  great looking bat. at first, the grip feels really small in your hands but once you we hit some with it, we really liked it. balls come off this bat really well with a good sound. we have a Cf8 also, and this bat is the exact same balance as the 2016 Cf8. We cant really tell if the ball comes off the bat better then the Cf8, but it does sound different. So im assuming the composite structure is different. everytime my son or some other player gets a big hit with it... me and coaches always look at each other and say "thats a hot bat".

Cons:  kinda feels weird to me.

Pros:  Feels good with the tapered handle. No vibration.

Cons:  No pop out of wrapper. hitting with my sons nee bat I can immediately tell that this bat needs a break in period. had 2 bats out of the wrapper, the Demarini Zen Balanced Composite and another brand Aluminum. hit about 40 balls with each and the pop just wasnt there with the Demarini as much as the other bat.

Pros:  Bought this bat at 32/29 for my son who was going into his junior year. He had his best year hitting at both the HS and travel ball level. A lot of it was the hard work he put in, but this bat helped too. Easy to swing despite the slight endload and only a little vibration. He's not a big kid at all, but he got multiple XBH's and a few dingers. The best part is the bat still has the pop and it looks like it'll have plenty left going into the season. Much better than the Rawlings Velo.

Cons:  Price obviously, but it's very durable (Demarini's seem to have this consistently over Easton) and looks like it's got much more than a season in it, even with all those practice and game swings.

I am a 5’11 160 freshman wondering if this bat would be a good fit for me or any other suggestions.

The 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC is a great option. Based on your height and weight I would recommend this in a 32"/29 ounce size for you.

Does an aluminum or a composite bat have more pop and increase better after hitting? I see college guys mainly using aluminum but wasn't sure.

Inherently, there is not going to be a big difference between the performance of aluminum bats and composite, like this 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCIC). Making a decision between composite and aluminium bats comes down to player preference.

What's the difference between the 2017 and the 2018 DeMarini CF Insane?

Aside from cosmetic changes and an updated handle and end cap on the 2018 model, the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCIC) and 2018 DeMarini CF Insane BBCOR Baseball Bat (WTDXCIC) are going to be very similar.

What's the difference between this bat and the 2017 CF Zen?

I have heard you shouldn't use composite bats if it below a certain temperature. If I were to use this bat in the cold, would it affect its performance?

You may see a slight decrease in performance, but the durability of the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC is the larger concern as the composite material is more susceptible to cracking in colder temperatures.

My son is 5'3" and weighs around 140 lbs. He is a power hitter in the 3-4 slot and has been using the Easton Mako XL -5 for the past two seasons. Would a 32" be too much handle for him? He is a strong kid with very good bat speed.

If you need a BBCOR bat like the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC I would recommend getting it in a 31 inch with the option of going up to the 32 inch.

What's better, end loaded or balanced?

There is no evidence that suggests the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC is a better or worse option when compared to its balanced counterpart, the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC. An end loaded bat can help a player generate more whip through the hitting zone which could possibly translate to more distance gained on balls put in play. The heavier feel towards the end of the bat is not preferred by all so it all comes down to player preference with regards to the swing weight feel.

I'm used to swinging a VELO. I feel it's too small for me. I was going to get a 33" bat. However, since this bat is end-loaded, would it be better to stay with a 32" or still move up to 33"?

If you wish to get this 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCIC) and have not swung an end-loaded bat before, I would recommend going with the smaller 32" sized bat to begin your use of barrel heavy bats.

Does this bat meet the new USA baseball bat standards? Why would I buy this when I can get the 2018 for the same price?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC does not feature the USA Baseball as this is a BBCOR model. No BBCOR bats will have the USA stamp on it. As for the 2018 DeMarini CF Insane BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTDXCIC, this bat is priced much higher than its 2017 BBCOR counterpart.

Would this bat be a good fit for a 5'4" 104 lbs 13 year old playing junior high ball?

I would not recommend the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCIC) for Junior High ball as it is a -3 and would more than likely feel quite heavy to your player. Instead I would recommend something like the 31in. 26oz. 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (WTDXVB5).

Reviews on the CF Zen state it breaks very often. The reviews I have read for this bat don't mention its durability. How is the durability of the CF Insane?

If reviews for this 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCIC) have not mentioned a lack of durability, then I would interpret that to mean that there have not been many durability issues for which there needed to be complaints. Although, I cannot make a guarantee on durability, I would say that so far this CF Insane has displayed solid durability.

I am 5'6" and 135 pounds and in 8 months I will be going into high school. I was wondering what size bat I should get. I want a CF Insane because I am a power hitter in the 3 hole. I am currently swinging a 31" Zen, and it is a -5. For the Insane, which size would you suggest?

Based upon your height and weight, my general suggestion would be to get this 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCIC) in a 31" or 32" length. If you feel ready for the 29 oz weight, then get the 32" length bat of the CF Insane. However, if you have reservations about the heavier bat, then go with the 31" length bat.

If I can sometimes hit for power and contact, should I use this Insane end-loaded bat or the CF Zen balanced bat?

A decision would ultimately have to be yours, but if you would consider yourself mainly a contact hitter with occasional power, then my general suggestion would be to forgo this 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCIC) and get the more balanced feeling 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCBC).

My son loves swinging wood bats. Is this bat similar in feel and balance of wood? If not what would you recommend?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC will have a bit more flex and depending on the wood bat could be a bit more top heavy. I would take a look at the Rawlings Velo, the stiffness of the handle makes it feel close to a wood feel.

My son is a freshman and is 6'2" 155 pounds. He is an advanced player and power hitter, but also can hit for average. He used a drop 5 last year and it was 33". Now he has to use BBCOR drop 3. Not sure if I go to 34" knowing he will grow and get stronger or stick with 33 for bat speed. Also, do I go with the end loaded or balanced. Bats are expensive so I don't want to make a mistake.

Personally, I would start with a 33" model if he is new to BBCOR bats. A 34" could certainly work, but I think he would need to gain a little weight to make that size comfortable for him, although that could certainly happen given his age. As for end-loaded vs balanced, I wouldn't recommend an end-loaded model until he gets a little bit bigger and stronger. They are intended for power hitters, and for someone new to the -3 weight of BBCOR, I think he will have better results with a balanced model for his first couple years of high school.

My 8th grader wanted to go BBCOR to prep for high school, and decided this 2017 Insane was the option. Straight out of the wrapper we took this bat to the cages tonight, and it sounded awful, I mean truly awful. "Tinny" and high pitched, like the cheap alloy bats from tee ball /coach pitch days. Did we get a lemon or just needs breaking in? For reference my ear is adjusted to all the Easton's we have been using - XL1s, Makos, other drop 5s Easton. Tough to gauge pop in the cage, but I saw nothing impressive. Panicking, with a tourney this weekend, and for me what was a very expensive investment. Appreciate your input.

The 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC will perform much differently than any bat the player has been using as BBCOR bats are very comparable to that of a wood bat; essentially this metal bat is tuned slightly better than a wood maple baseball bat. This bat will feature a two-piece fully composite construction with an end-loaded swing weight design. With an end-loaded bat a player will have to be more precise when squaring up the ball as these bats tend to have slightly smaller sweet spots when compared to a balanced model; the sweet spot is usually hotter though so when hitting squarely it will have a tendency of traveling further. With any composite bat there typically is a break in that will aid in the bat performing at a higher clip. Anywhere from 100-150 swings should help; soft toss and tee work are the best drills with the player taking roughly 60-70% game like swings.

Trying to figure out what is ideal for my son. He will be playing varsity ball as a sophomore this next season and has a good amount of pop. He has a tendancy to hit on top of the ball and his bat speed is a little slow. He swings a 33/30 now at 6'2" 190lbs. I am thinking having him use a 32/29. What is your opinion?

If your player is currently using an end loaded bat, such as the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC, then I would suggest going with a balanced option like the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC. If he is already using a balanced bat, then I would suggest dropping down a size, but I would overall avoid using an end loaded bat like the CF Insane End Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat.

My son is 5'3 130 lbs., 9 years old playing in 10U. What is the right size bat for him? Big hitter-big swing.

Based on your player's height, weight and age, a BBCOR model, such as the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC would be a bit big for him. Players at his age typically swing a -12 or -10 bat, so I would suggest a 31" 21 ounce bat such as the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTDXCBZ.

I just got a 33" 30 oz. I am a power hitter and used an end loaded bat before. I am 5'7" and 130 pounds, do you think this is the right call?

As a power hitter, an end loaded bat like the CF Insane, is a good option. Based on your height and weight, we suggest a 31" model of the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC. That suggestion is based off your height and weight though. If you are comfortable swinging a bigger heavier bat, then the 33" could certainly work.

My son is 13 and has been using a CF-5 for which he loves! But its pop is all but gone. I was looking at all the reviews for the balanced Zen and a lot said they broke them. Kind of scared to spend the money. He is 5'1/2" tall and weighs 130 lbs . Should I go with the Mako instead?

Both the DeMarini CF Insane and the Easton Mako Beast are top of the line models. Both are composite bats as well that need to be broken-in before game use. Both bats would be a great option to go with.

I'm 14 yrs old, 5'10" and 150#s. I typically bat 3, 4 or 5. Last year I played the Cat6 31/28 with good results. Now that I am older and stronger, I believe I need a bigger bat and I want one with more pop than the Cat6. I can't decide between the CF Zen or CF Insane. As a power hitter which would you recommend (CF Insane or ZEN)and in what size? And will I notice a difference between the CF series and the Cat6?

Based on your height and weight and the fact that you are a power hitter I would recommend the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCIC) in the 32"/29 ounce version. Power hitters do benefit from end loaded bats so you might see a difference, but the Marucci Cat 6 is a great bat as well.

With the CF8 series, DeMarini did not produce an end-loaded model that was fully composite. Rather, the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo RAW BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXVDC (alloy barrel and composite handle) was the end-loaded model manufactured in 2016.

I used the 31/28 2015 DeMarini Voodoo Overlord last year as a freshman. It felt slightly end loaded. I'm moving up to a 32/29 this year. Will the barrel for the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane be bigger than the aluminum Voodoo Overlord I used last year?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC is going to have a bit longer barrel and larger sweet spot since it features a composite barrel instead of alloy.

I'm a 6'0" and weigh 150 lbs .(sophomore) and also have a long wing span. Wonder if this should be considered in selecting bat size as well?

Based on everything that you have told me I would just recommend going with a 32"/29 ounce bat. The 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCIC) would be a good option top take a look at.

My son is a freshman, 5'8" and 200 pounds; very thick and strong but short arms. What length weight ratio do you recommend?

Based on your son's height and weight, the best size to get the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC in would be a 33 inch 30 ounce model. Since he is a FR, it may be wiser to get a 32 inch bat but he will outgrow this rather quickly (after one season).

My son is 13 years old and used the CF8 -5 last year and he is going into a new age group which only allows BBCOR certified bats. He is 5'4" tall and weighs 130 lbs. Which bat would you recommend him using, the CF Insane or Louisville Slugger Prime 917?

I would recommend going with the Louisville Slugger Prime 917 over the CF Insane if this is his first time using BBCOR bats, simply because the end loaded swing weight of the CF Insane may be a bit tougher to handle than the balanced swing weight of the Prime 917. All BBCOR bats are -3, so the increased weight combined with an end loaded bat may make that transition slightly more difficult. If he can handle the end loaded swing, then both bats will perform very well/similarly.

What is the difference between the Voodoo Insane and CF Insane?

The main difference between this 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCIC) and the Voodoo Insane is the barrel material. This CF Insane features a composite barrel and the Voodoo features an alloy barrel.

I am a freshman playing my first year of varsity. Do you think the bat will cause me to be late on the faster pitching?

If you are used to swinging balanced feeling bats, then yes, the end-loaded feel on this 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCIC) could initially cause you be late on your swing (especially if you are new to BBCOR bats). However, if you are a power hitter and feel that you will adjust to an end-loaded bat with some use, it would probably still be okay to make a purchase for this bat.

I am a freshman in high school and I am 6 feet tall. What length of bat should I buy?

Based on your height and age, we would recommend getting a 32 inch bat. If you feel you are strong for your age then a 33 inch bat would be a good choice as well. Do remember through, the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC has an end-loaded swing weight design to it.

Does this bat have more pop than the Louisville Slugger Prime 917?

It is tough to definitely answer which BBCOR model will have the most pop on the market. The 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC will be different in design compared to the LS Prime 917 in that it will feature an end-loaded swing weight design. An end-loaded swing weight design bat could potentially allow for more pop as an end-loaded bat will have more mass in a smaller sweet spot; this will allow for a greater barrel whip effect which can potentially facilitate more pop.

Does the DeMarini CF Insane have the same swing weight as the DeMarini Voodoo Insane?

This 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCIC) will probably feature a little lighter swing weight when compared to the Voodoo Insane. Both bats will be end-loaded, but I would say the Voodoo Insane will be more end-loaded overall.

My son used the CF8 32" -8 last year and loved it. He is now playing in tournaments that only allow -3 bats. Which make and model is the most comparable to the CF8, and will it give the same results?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC is the most comparable -3 bat to the 2016 DeMarini CF8 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCFR. BBCOR bats have a lower bat performance factor than USSSA certified bats, however they are much heavier and the added weight creates more power. Therefore, the performance of these two bats will be very similar.

I am 5'5" and 130 pounds. Would a 31" or 32" BBCOR bat be good for me? I used a 25 ounce bat last year and was thinking if I went to a 32/29 it might be too heavy for me.

Based on your height and weight, we suggest a 31" model in the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC.

I was just wondering what that difference was between the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC and the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC. They look the same. I was wondering what size I need? I am 5'5" 120 lbs and thinking a 32" will be fine so I can grow into it.

The 2017 DeMarini CF Insane End Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCIC features a slightly end loaded swing weight, while the CF Zen features a balanced swing weight. Based on your height and weight, we suggest a 31" model. If you are comfortable jumping up to a 32" model then you can.
