Pros:  This bat is by far the best bat DeMarini has made, It has amazing pop, the General feel is great, The durability is fantastic because I've been swinging it all winter and it still feels new. There is no vibration what so ever and it is just overall a great bat.

Cons:  The only con I can think of is that it costs $450 but if you are looking for a top tier bat that is worth the money then you've found the right one.

Pros:  Was seeking balanced feeling replacement BBCOR/high school bat for my 15 year old son after Easton recently discontinued his favorite S1 model. This new CF Zen is hands down the most balanced BBCOR bat I have ever felt. Feels much lighter in your hand then -3 rating and has a super balanced swing weight. Like an Easton S1 but with more barrel.

Cons:  Smallish knob is not a negative just worth mentioning since it is a little different them most conventional designs. Also not a negative but just be aware that it won't last forever. Have owned previous DeMarini CF composite models and they are good for a few seasons depending on reps and care/conditions.

Pros:  Bought this bat for my 13 yr old son who plays on a Triple A Team. He claims he is now ready to hit for the cycle every game since he has used this bat. We'll see!!!

Cons:  Price was a bit steep but that is my only drawback so far.

Pros:  EXCEPTIONAL BAT!!! Well balanced, insane pop out of wrapper, nice details and graphics. Bat feels good from stance to contact per my son. 13U player

Cons:  Nothing as of yet. Low durability rating due to being new so no info on that topic yet. I'm sure it will be satisfactory though.

Pros:  The center of mass on this bat is nearly two inches closer toward the hands when compared to a Marucci Cat 7. Using a diamond kinetics swing tracker, the acceleration and power metrics are both improved by double-digit percentage points. Back-to-back distance off of a tee also shows the CF's advantage over the Cat 7. Especially for someone looking for a balanced bat, this is a great choice. The knob and flare of the handle are also very comfortable. We rated 'pop' as a 3 because, especially for a BBCOR, there is really no discernible difference from bat to bat.

Cons:  The elephant in the room....it's over $400. I prefer the grip on an Easton or the Marucci Cat 7 too.

Pros:  Good pop, you don't really feel anything so it is a more flexible bat. The ball jumps when you hit it in the sweet spot

Cons:  The ball just dies if you hit it anywhere besides the sweet spot, sweet spot isn't truly as large as they say. Not incredibly balanced compared to bats like the Slugger Prime 617 or COMBAT or Rawlings Velo Models. My bat broke somehow when hit right in the sweet spot and didn't go anywhere, it could've been the weather but it is odd for a $450 bat to do that.

Pros:  This is a great bat. Very balanced and has nice hit action and pop.

Cons:  It broke after only 1 month's use. It cracked and something inside is now rattling around. It does have a 12 month warranty but you really have to jump through hoops to return it with DeMarini. It takes a long time after you return the bat to get a "store credit" and then you have to reorder it and have it shipped. In the mean time you are without a bat that cost $449. Not good in the middle of baseball season.

Pros:  Great feel and solid pop, no vibration into the handle, very balanced swing weight, sounds crisp and sweet spot seems larger than previous CF models.

Cons:  My son hit a line drive to left off the end of the bat - ball went to left field and half of the end cap went to 2nd base. Warranty claim was submitted along with follow-up emails and calls, no contact from Demarini in over a month with only a week or two left in my sons high school career since he is a senior. The bat is good, but after the purchase customer service has been unacceptable. To say he is disappointed to not be able to use his bat would be an understatement. With tax included, this has ended-up being almost $500 down the drain. Very upsetting for a parent who is also a player and has been a Demarini supporter for over 20 years.

Pros:  This bat feels incredibly light and is a very good bat if you are patient.

Cons:  When I bought this bat I was very excited to break it out of the box and go swing it. Well I was wrong when I first used it it felt dead and just terrible. As I have swung the bat it has gotten better so we went to multiple bat experts and they all said the same thing. The CF Zen has to be broken in and then it will be good. They also said it is "Cold out of the box" as in the pop will get better as you use it and hit the ball on different parts of the bat. They told us that Easton and Louisville Slugger bats are "hot" and they are ready to go right out of the box with all the pop. So if you are going to buy this bat I suggest you be patient and get lots of work in with the bat before you're season starts.

Pros:  Pop right out of the wrapper. Huge sweet spot. Looks great. More balanced than the insane. No vibration. Durability seems better than previous non BBCOR zen that I used. My son made the switch to BBCOR and while there are obvious differences in sound and feel, this Zen just further reinforces my love for Demarini.

Cons:  Price. But, you get what you pay for. Got this for $100 less thanks to just bats.

Do you have to break-in the CF Zen?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC is pretty hot out of the wrapper and it does not necessarily require a break-in period. However, we feel it will still benefit from a small break-in period of about 100 swings. It is best to take those swings off a tee while rotating the barrel a quarter turn every few swings and gradually working your swing speed up to 100%.

How thick is the grip tape on the CF Zen? We replaced the original because it was worn and my son doesn't like the thicker grip tape I put on it. We are wanting to get the same thickness as the original.

We don't have the exact thickness of the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC, but we could estimate it at about 0.5 mm.

Is the 2017 Demarini Zen bat better or more in demand than the 2017 Insane? What are pros and cons on both bats?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC is in higher demand due to its balanced swing weight. The Insane is generally for strictly power hitters. Since there isn't as many true power hitters as more average players, the balanced Zen is more popular. The CF Zen will offer the ability to create more bat speed, whereas the CF Insane will offer more mass behind the ball for more power and greater distances if the player can handle the added swing weight.

My son has a 31 inch DeMarini CF6 Paradox Composite that he has loved but now needs to upgrade and I'm looking at the Zen as he is a contact hitter. He has also grown quite a bit in a short time. He is now 5'7" and 178 lbs and should be moved up to a 33" but I'm nervous as he would go from 28 ounces to 30. Should I consider a 32" or is he just to big and does he need to be using a 33"?

We would suggest a 32" or a 33" bat, either one would be fine. Some other factors to consider are how far he stands from the plate, if he ever chokes up or not, etc.

Does the "Insane" version contain more pop than the balanced CF Zen?

It does not have more pop, but it ultimately depends on the type of player to determine which one would provide you with the best performance. The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC has more of a balanced swing weight and it is typically best suited for a contact hitter. The CF Insane model features an end loaded design and it is typically best suited for a power hitter.

Is the DeMarini CF Zen DXCBC end loaded or balanced or is the Insane the end loaded version of the Zen?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC is a balanced two-piece fully composite bat. If seeking the end loaded model then one would want that which contains "Insane" in the product heading. If one sees "Insane" in any 2017 models from DeMarini then these bats would be end loaded.

I'm conflicted between getting the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen (BBCOR) or the 2016 DeMarini Vexxum NVS (also BBCOR). Which bat do you recommend, and if neither, which brand/model?

Both the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC and the 2016 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXVXC are great bats to consider from DeMarini. They will be slightly different in construction with the Zen being a two-piece fully composite model with a balanced swing weight while the Vexxum will be a hybrid design with an alloy barrel and composite handle - it too will also be balanced. Reviews show that both bats have been great from a performance and durability standpoint. If playing in warmer weather consistently then the Zen might perform a little better as composite material bats tend to get hotter with 72+ degree weather. If playing in colder climates then we would recommend getting the Vexxum as alloy barrels show better durability.

Is DeMarini making both a balanced and end-loaded version of the CF Zen (if so, how do I tell the difference?), or is the CF Insane the end-loaded version?

DeMarini did make both, and end-loaded and balanced model but the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC is the end-loaded model and the DeMarini CF ZEN is the balanced mdoel.

Would you prefer a MAKO Beast BBCOR, a DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR, or Louisville Slugger Prime 917 BBCOR? Which is the most durable, can be most trusted, and has the most pop?

All three of these bats, the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC, 2017 Louisville Slugger Prime 917 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBP9173 and 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MK are great two-piece fully composite bats with balanced swing weights to consider. Since all three of these bats are 2017 models it is tough to say which of these bats might perform better or offer greater durability. At the end of the day, BBCOR bats are all very similar when it comes to pop (the testing standards make it tough for a bat to significantly outperform competitors) so it really comes down to what manufacturer the consumer trusts.

Is the CF Zen BBCOR bat USSSA stamped?

This 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCBC) will be BBCOR certified and even though it does not feature USSSA certification, it will still be allowed in USSSA tourneys (due to the certification for BBCOR bats being stricter than USSSA).

I'm looking to upgrade from the Rawlings Velo for my son who will be playing high school next year. Would you consider 2017 DeMarini CF Zen to be a huge upgrade?

The Rawlings Velo is a very high quality bat so I would not say the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCBC) is a "huge" upgrade. It is however a very high quality bat and the CF series has been one of the most popular series around for many years. I would highly recommend it.

I'm looking to purchase the DeMarini CF Zen. I am 6 ft tall and I prefer to swing a 32 inch balanced bat. Would you recommend this?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC would make a great bat for someone looking for a balanced bat. This bat features a two-piece, fully composite construction and is one of the more balanced bats currently on the market.

Does DeMarini make a 32/27 end loaded bat? I know they make the Insane Balanced but would prefer an end loaded bat as 32/29 is too heavy.

Unfortunately no, we do not carry any DeMarini models that are end loaded in the 32"/27oz size.

I am looking between these two bats. My son is 6'2: and 180 lbs and has a exit velo of 91 mph. Should he be looking at a one piece bat or 2 piece composite?

It is really a matter of personal preference of whether or not someone would want a one piece bat or a two piece bat. Both the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCBC) and the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo One BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXVOC) are great bats and you really cannot go wrong either way. Here is a good article that helps with deciding between a one piece bat or a two piece bat - http://blog.justbats.com/blog/index.php/3166/one-piece-vs-two-piece-bats

Do you think this bat is good for an 11 year old that plays middle school baseball and travel baseball?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen is one of the most popular bats currently on the market. It has a two-piece, fully composite construction with a balanced swing weight which is generally preferred by youth players. More than likely, you will need a senior league model depending on the bat rules and regulations for the leagues you are playing in.

Which bat has more pop and balance, the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR or the 2017 Louisville Slugger Prime 917 BBCOR?

Both of these bats are gong to be very comparable and both very high end bats. They will have similar performance. I would give the edge to the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCBC) on balance through, with it being more balanced.

Is this bat a drop 3 and is it half and half?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCBC) is a -3 and it is a 2 piece composite bat. So the handle and the barrel are both going to be composite.

Why is it that most people say power hitters prefer one piece bats for the energy transfer? Does this mean a one piece hits the ball better for power?

One-piece bats provide little or no give and have a stiff feel when contact is made with the ball. Due to the fact that one-piece bats have a very minimal amount of flex at contact, little or no energy is lost which results in more power. For this reason, one-piece bats are preferred by stronger players with above average bat speed such as a power hitter. Two-piece bats provide more flex at contact with the ball. The two-piece construction creates a “whip” effect that results in an increase in bat speed. An increase in bat speed results in an increase in power. For this reason players with average or below average bat speed such as a contact hitter, prefer two-piece bats .

Which bat would be better for a power hitter who is 6 feet and 165 pounds? The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC, or the 2017 Marruci CAT 7 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC7?

Typically power hitters prefer a more stiff feel for maximum energy transfer such as a one-piece, aluminum bat like the 2017 Marruci CAT 7 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC7. The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC is a top bat on the market as well and can be used by both power and contact hitters. It will have a more flexible feel with its two-piece design that will allow for additional barrel flex which helps to increase trampoline effect.

What's better in terms of barrel length, the Easton MAKO BEAST or the DeMarini CF Zen?

Both the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen (DXCBC) and the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST (BB17MK) will have long barrels with very large sweet spots, and the two will both be very comparable performance-wise.

I noticed some of the CF Zens have different knobs then others. Why is that?

All of the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR (DXCBC) bats have the same RCK Knob on them that fits the hand well for a comfortable grip.

Should this bat not be used below a certain temperature?

Any metal bat will perform better in warmer temperatures. With the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC being a composite barrel bat it would be wise to use in temperatures exceeding 70 degrees Fahrenheit. It can certainly be used in less favorable conditions but could experience durability issues quicker than usual especially when the temperatures drop below 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

Is this basically the same bat as the CF8 from last year?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC is the newest version of the DeMarini CF model line. The new Para-Flex Composite in the barrel makes the bat 22% stronger than the CF8 and allows for optimum flex.

Which has a lighter swing weight, the CF Zen or MAKO BEAST?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCBC) and the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17MK) are going to feature very balanced designs and both are going to have light swing weights. The Zen is going to have the Low Pro End Cap which optimizes weight, feel, & compression throughout barrel. The Mako Beast is going to feature an extremely low MOI which will help it be extremely balanced.

If I'm 6 ft and weigh 155 pounds and am going into 9th grade, what size should I get?

Based on your height and weight we would recommend you swing a 33/30. But this is definitely just a recommendation and if a 33/30 feels to heavy, or light, you can defiantly move to a 32/29 or a 34/31.

Does the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen bat need to be broken-in before use?

This 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Balanced BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCBC) should be pretty ready for use right out of the package. If any break-in is needed to get the bat ready to display game-ready performance, it should only consist of a day of use that includes some BP and tee work.

Is the grip nearest to the knob thicker then the CF8? Could you make it so it is like the CF8 grip?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Balanced BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC seems to have a slightly thicker grip at the handle/knob than the CF8 model. We are not sure if this can be changed or not and the only way to find out would be to remove the grip tape and then either re-grip it with an after market grip or see if there is something that DeMarini is placing near the knob to make the grip thicker.

What's the difference between this bat and DeMarini's other new bat and the cf8? I've been trying to decide which ones a better pick for me.

The new 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Balanced BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC, there is also the CF Zen End Load, will have the new ParaFlex composite barrel dynamic fiber orientation for max performance, feel, & durability. This will make the bat feel lighter than the CF8 model and will also not require any break-in. The CF Zen End Load will have a slightly different weight distribution and would be a great option for a hitter who hits for power and has a strong top hand.
