Would this bat be a good one to use even though I'm not a slap hitter. I'm a power hitter so I wouldn't know if this is the bat to choose.
The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA is grip tape oriented to maximize feel/comfort for lefty hitters. If you are not a slap hitter, I would not recommend getting a slap specific bat. A better option for you might be the 2017 DeMarini CF9 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFI. The end-loaded swing weight is very beneficial to power hitters.
Does this bat come in -13?
The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA is only made in a -10 length to weight ratio.
I haven't found many reviews on this bat. I have however found many reviews on the DeMarini CF8-10 DXCFA "Slapper". How does this bat compare to the CF8 -10 DXCFA Slapper?
The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA features a Paraflex Composite barrel which is stronger than the Paradox Plus+ used on the DeMarini CF8 -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFA "Slapper." Other than this slight change, the bats are very similar with the 2017 model being mostly a continuation of the CF8.
My daughter is a lefty and likes to slap but also likes to drive the ball. Is this a good combo bat?
Yes, you would be able to slap and drive the ball well with the 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA. The longer barrel will help with slap hitting but not hinder the ability to drive the ball.
Looking at this bat for my daughter. I need a 33"/23 oz (-10) size. Is this bat end-loaded?
This 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFA) is not end-loaded. If you wanted a CF series fastpitch bat in the 33"/23 oz size with an end-load, I would recommend the 2018 DeMarini CFX Insane -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFI).
My daughter is 5'4", 118 lbs and she has the CF7 (32/22) bat now for hitting and slapping. She has been using this bat for 2 years now. Should I move her up to the CF9 (33/23)? She is a power hitter and pretty good at slapping.
Whether or not to move your daughter up to the 33/23 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA will depend more on how you feel she is currently handling the 32/22 bat as well as if she has grown any since that purchase. We have a bat coach feature that allows a customer to enter a player's height and weight to determine proper length and we would recommend using this to see if a 33 would be advisable.
Could you please tell me if these bats are ASA certified stamp (ASA 2000 or ASA 2004 for Fast Pitch) or the ISF certified stamp note that beginning in 2015 only the ISF 2005 â€œplate stampâ€? Also do you ship to New Zealand.
The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA will feature, and be approved for, the following stamps: ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. Unfortunately though we are only able to ship within the 50 US States.
Is this a one piece bat? Also what is a slapper bat? Can a right hander use this bat?
The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFA) is a two piece composite bat. The slapper means it is designed for left handed slap style hitters. A right hand hitter can us the bat, but it will cause damage to the grip tape.
Hi are there any differences between the 16, 17 and 18 slapper bats? Are there other slapper bats recommended? My daughter is a left handed slapper and has the 16 model and loves it.
Each year the Slapper's gain some new technologies but have similar features. The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA would be very close to the 2016 a good fit for your daughter.
Does this bat need to be broken in? if so how long?
The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA is a composite bat, so we would suggest 150-200 swings off a tee or soft toss while rotating the barrel 1/4 turn between swings to give the bat a nice, even break in.
Can a left-handed batter use this bat the same as the slapper?
The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFA) is designed for slap hitters, however, a non slapper hitter could use it as well. It is gripped for lefties.
Can a girl that is a power hitter achieve the same results using the CF9 Slapper as she would using the CF9 WTDXCFP?
The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFA) is designed for slap hitters and if a girl was a power hitter we would recommend the 2017 DeMarini CF9 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFP).
What is the difference between the CF8 Slapper bat and the CF9 Slapper bat?
The main difference between the 2016 DeMarini CF8 -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFA) "Slapper" and the 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFA) is going to be the composite used. The CF9 Slapper uses Paraflex Composite Barrel which is 22% Stronger Carbon Fibers Compared to Paradox+ Composite that the CF8 Slapper uses.
Do they make a 30" version? Based on my daughter's height/weight I am worried the 31" will be too much for her.
Unfortunately, the smallest size they make for the 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA is a 31" model.
Two years before founder Ray DeMarini started his company in 1989, he was hired by ESPN as the advisor and host of a series of instructional softball videos. To this day, Ray DeMarini's Reflex Hitting System is still ESPN's most successful home video. Taking his expertise and credibility to his self-named company, DeMarini made headlines in 1993 with the world's first multi-wall bat, the Doublewall. Innovation hasn't let up since, as the company continues to be a trend-setter in baseball and softball bats. In 2000, DeMarini joined forces with Wilson Sporting Goods to develop the next.... read more
