Pros:  The bat is hot out the wrapper, no issues with sting unless ball was hit on the very end.

Cons:  The CF Zen Junior Big Barrel was a replacement for my sons CF 8 JBB. The bats were both very similar with the difference being durability. First bat lasted about 9 months (league and several tourneys) while the replacement cracked within 3 months of use. If you buy, save your receipt! Getting bat replaced was not a hassle but you only get a one-time replacement, so you may get 8 months out of 2 bats!

Pros:  amazing pop right out of the wrapper very well-balanced feel

Cons:  The barrel cracked after about a hundred swings in three tournaments. The bat was amazing other than its durability and just bats was wonderful help as well as DeMarini in getting it exchanged right away. I'd look at the improved versions in the CF Zen line I truely believe this was mainly an issue in this drop 11 model.

Pros:  My son had gotten the 2018 CF Zen -10 28/18 for a gift, but it was 3 oz too heavy which made it difficult for him to swing. Demarini was awesome and allowed me to return the bat for a voucher which i will use next yr whrn he gets bigger. Finally, I am a member of the Travel baseball group on Facebook and this bat was recomended due to the drop and weight diffrence this bat is around 1-2 ounces off. His 27/16 weighs in at 27/17.7oz. for my son this is perfect!!! Great pop, and doesnt sting, and perfect for the kid pitch 8U Federation ball team he plays on.

Cons:  if your looking for a true drop -11 this is more like a -10 or -9.

What kind of "composite" are these types of bats made of?

They are made of DeMarini's Paraflex Composite, same as their other CF Zen models from 2017.

What is the actual weight of the 26" model? I know it is supposed to weigh 15oz, but 2-piece bats are known for being significantly heavier than the stamped weight.

I've seen bat weights stay true and I've also seen bats up to 2 ounces heavier than their listed weight. The 26" model of the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY will weigh right around 16 ounces instead of its listed weight of 15 ounces.

Will this bat be legal for 9u rec ball?

This bat has the USSSA 1.15 BPF certification stamp. If your league allows USSSA bats, then this will be legal, although it is recommend for players age 8 and under as listed in the bat features. You might check with your coach or league commissioner to see if your league requires USSSA or USA certified bats.

Can you use this bat for 9-U kid pitch?

This 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (DXCBY) is designed for use in coach pitch and machine pitch baseball. If your player is facing anyone that is consistently throwing around or over 45 mph, the durability of this bat could be compromised.

I'm looking for something high quality for coach pitch softball. My older daughter(12U) uses the CF9 and she loves it, so i would like to stay with Demarini for my youngest daughter. Can this bat be used for coach pitch softball?

We would not really recommend using a baseball bat for coach pitch softball. I would recommend checking out the 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXBFP) for your daughter.

I saw one expert say this bat is "hot out of the wrapper". By stating that, to me that's saying this bat needs no break in period. Another expert says to basically go through your normal break in process as with all composite bats, to me then it's not hot out of the wrapper. So which is it? My son's team just bought this for a team bat and I'd hate to see this bat get damaged because of an improper break in process.

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY, as well as other composite bats from 2017, are suppose to be game ready out of the box like an alloy bat. After speaking with customers over the course of the past year most feel the 2017 composite bats still require a break in period before truly being game ready. Thus, it would be prudent to put the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY through a break-in process before using for game play to optimize the performance of the bat as well as improve the durability.

Do they make a 29 inch 18 oz in this model?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY is a -11 length to weight ratio bat. Unfortunately this bat is not featured in a 29 inch length.

Is this bat good for 13 year old?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (DXCBY) is a coach pitch bat. I would recommend the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCB5) for a 13 year old.

Carter Expert

Do you think that with the soon to be rule changes in 2018 that bat manufactures (specifically DeMarini) will create a -11 or -12 in the 2-5/8 barrel specifically for players like my 8 yr old who has problem generating bat speed for the -10 models?

Unfortunately we don't have any information on what bat manufacturers will be releasing for the upcoming USABat changes at this time, so I can't speculate as to what sizes they will be making.

I want to order this bat for my almost 7 year old. He has an aggressive swing. With this bat being composite and made for kids under 8, do you think that this option would be okay for him?

Yes, I think that this bat would work well for a player that at 7 years old. As long as the velocities that he is facing stay around 40-45 mph (or below), he should be able to experience excellent durability and performance off this 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (DXCBY).

I see you keep saying this bat is intended for coach pitch. However, is this an okay option for machine pitch 36-42 mph?

This 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (DXCBY) will be able to handle 36-42 mph speed from a pitching machine. However, if you take this bat to be used on pitching velocities that exceed 45 mph, your bat may experience some lacking durability.

Is the barrel length on the 28/17 Junior Big Barrel the same as the 28/18 senior?

The barrel diameter or length on the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY will be very similar to the barrel diameter/length on the Senior League model.

Cameron Expert

Does the junior big barrel have as much pop as the senior league big barrel? My son is 8 and plays coach pitch and swings a 28/18 COMBAT MAXUM right now.

For coach pitch leagues, Junior Big Barrel bats are typically the way to go. They will have thinner barrel walls than Senior League bats that are designed for higher velocities, allowing the Junior Big Barrels to have a bit more pop in coach pitch/machine pitch situations.

Will this bat be okay for my 9 year old son who plays 9U travel ball kid pitch tournaments? Any breaking in needed or is hot out of the wrapper? Any other suggestions/recommendations or details you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY is meant for coach pitch leagues with velocity under 40 MPH. The barrel walls are thin on Junior Big Barrel bats and will not hold up well when the velo starts to exceed the 40 MPH threshold. If looking for a kid pitch bat then you are going to want to look at Youth Big Barrel or Senior League Bats. The DeMarini CF Zen is a great option to consider since it is a two-piece, fully composite bat with a balanced swing weight. The two piece bat will help reduce vibration from off-centered hits and the new composite material will make this bat hot out of the wrapper.

Does this bat need to be broken in or is it hot out of the wrapper? Looking to purchase this bat and want to make sure it is ready to go because my 7u kid has a tourney this weekend.

To properly break in the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (DXCBY), we recommend taking 150-200 swings playing soft toss or off a tee using real baseballs. Begin swinging at 40% power and work our way up to full strength as you get closer to 200 swings.

What is the difference between this bat and the DXCZB?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY, like all other Junior Big Barrel bats, is going to be good for usage in Coach Pitch only. Using it in kid pitch will lead to durability issues. The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Balanced Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZ is the Youth Big Barrel model, making it suitable for usage in kid pitch.

Why do you say this bat should only be used for coach pitch and not kid pitch?

Junior Big Barrel bats like the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY are shorter, lighter baseball bats with a larger barrel designed for players 8 years old and younger. These baseball bats generally have a 2 5/8 Inch or 2 3/4 Inch Barrel Diameter and a Length to Weight Ratio of -10, -10.5, -11, or -12. Junior Big Barrel bats are also commonly labeled as "Coach Pitch Baseball Bats". To get the longest useful life possible, these types of baseball bats should be used exclusively in leagues where the coach pitches to the players.

What is the difference between the 2016 bat and the 2017 bat besides the paint graphics?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (DXCBY) features DeMarini's new ParaFlex composite material that is stronger and allows for more flex and pop than the 2016 version.

Do they make this bat in 2 5/8" Junior Big Barrel?

Unfortunately the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat only comes in a 2 3/4" barrel.

Can this bat be used for 9U kid pitch?

Unfortunately the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY is not intended to be used for kid pitch. This model is specifically for coach pitch with pitching under 40 mph. A senior league baseball bat has thicker barrel walls that can withstand kid pitch speeds.

My son isn't ready for a 28" bat. He plays 10U kid pitch. What is the difference between this bat and the Senior League model, other than the length and the drop?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY has thinner barrel walls and is intended to be used for coach pitch on pitching under 40 mph. The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Balanced Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZ has thicker barrels that enhance the durability in order to withstand the faster pitching speeds of kid pitch.
