Can this bat be used in cooler weather, below 50 degrees?
I would not recommend using the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX in weather below 50 degrees as it can cause durability issues to arise with the bat. This is because the cold weather causes baseballs to become more dense, and thus the likelihood of structural damage to a bat (especially a composite bat) is increased substantially.
When will JustBats post a video on exit speeds?
We do not have the technology and equipment to do the proper exit speed testing that is used to determine if a bat is legal for USA or USSSA certification. We could make a video describing exit speeds, but that is not planned for the immediate future as far as I know.
How much break in time for this bat? How many hits to break it in?
We would recommend between 150-250 swings off a tee or soft toss to break in the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX. After each swing, rotate the barrel a 1/4 turn.
What DeMarini bat is better for a power hitter the CF Zen or the Voodoo
Both the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX and the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 are both great options for a power hitter and it really just comes down to the players personal preference.
What DeMarini bat is better for a power hitter, the CF Zen or the Voodoo?
Both bats should suit a power hitter about the same, as they are both two-piece designs with added flex during the swing.
Looking to purchase the 2018 Zen. We purchased the DeMarini CF8 (-11), 30" for my son and he loved it (ball comes off the bat quickly). How does the new Zen compare to it?
This 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUFX) features the new USA Bat certification that is being required for use in Little League Baseball, Pony Baseball, Dixie Baseball, etc... In regard to performance, this bat will be lower than the CF8 you used in the past that would have had USSSA certification on it. However, if you are required to use the new USA certified bats, this would certainly be the bat to consider since your player swung a CF8 in the past.
What is the piece made of that is just below the barrel? Is it plastic? Will it hold up to a baseball hitting it?
That is the connection piece found on most two-piece composite bats. Generally they are made of a durable plastic/composite material, yes. It should hold up to the occasional ball hitting it, but if you consistently get jammed that far or expect to, then I would not recommend a two-piece bat as that material is not meant for repeated ball strikes.
I forgot to mention the 2011 XL1 was a 29" -10, and I don't see where the 2018 CF Zen -10 comes in a 29", so do you think the 30" would be ok?
Unfortunately the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX is only featured in sizes 30, 31 and 32 inches. Going with a 30 inch model of this bat could work well as it is balanced whereas the XL1 was end-loaded; it all comes down to what you can handle.
Will this bat be good for a young 10 year old? I have read that many of the new USA baseball bats are heavier than listed weight.
The 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX is actually one of the most true-to-listed weight bats on the market currently. They typically range between 0-0.5oz above the listed weight. Beyond that, this bat would certainly be a great fit for a 10 year old player.
My son is 8 years old, 82 lbs and 4'4" tall. He is use to swinging the Easton XL1 (-10) which is end-loaded. Would this be a good bat for him or would the Easton Ghost X -10 or -8 be better?
Based on your player's height and weight, I would recommend looking at this 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUFX) in a 29" length as long as the 19 oz weight can be handled. If you were interested in the Ghost X, you could also check out that bat in the 29"/19 oz size (-10) as it will have a very similar design. However, I would not recommend looking to a -8 size for your eight year old as I think it will be too heavy.
I thought bats were not allowed to have a composite barrel and have a USA stamp for 2018? Also, what is the true drop weight difference between this and the LS 918 two piece 30/20?
Removing composite barrels was false information that was passed around. The Prime 918 is a USSSA bat, so it's not really a true comparison between that and the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX. The 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX is very close to a -10 length to weight ratio, and the Prime 918 USSSA model is closer to a -9 in actual weight.
How much does the CF Zen 30/20 weigh compared to a LS 618 Solo 30/20?
Both of these bats will run quite similar to their listed weights. The 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX is one of the most accurate bats in the USA line though, ranging roughly 0-0.5oz above the listed weight.
Is this bat okay for USSSA? Does it have that logo/stamp?
The 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX is typically used in leagues like AABC, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth, Little League, & Pony. That being said, it is legal to use a USA certified bat in a USSSA sanctioned game. You just can't swing a USSSA certified bat in a USA sanctioned game.
How many ounces over the stated weight is this bat, and is the barrel longer than the Voodoo hybrid USA bat?
The 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX is only about half an ounce heavier than the listed weight, and does offer a longer barrel than the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2.
Will the Zen USA bat be available in weights other than -10?
We do not have any indication from DeMarini that the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX will be offered in any other length to weight ratio.
Will this be available in a 29 inch?
The 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX will not be available in a 29 inch model.
Do I need to break in the DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA bat?
Since the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX is a composite model it would be best to put the bat through a break-in period before game use. This will help the bat perform at its optimum level.
Besides price, how does this differ in performance compared to the 2018 Voodoo w/fusion?
It is difficult to say if you will find a performance difference in the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX and the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2. At this time we are not seeing anything currently on the market showing significant performance capabilities.
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
