Pros: Huge difference in hitting! My daughter nailed every ball every time up at bat yesterday in the tournament. She was 6 for 6 with 3 triples, 2 doubles and a single! She loves this bat and definfetly worth the money!!
Cons: Cost & Durability. My 13 old daughter 5'-2"/100# has broken her 4th bat. This current model has lasted a month and half! These bats have not been exposed to cold temperatures or adverse conditions. There is absolutely no reason for a girl this size to be destroying these products. DeMarini has an issue! Sure we can send in for a one time replacement but we will not get a year out of a $349.95 bat! We have tried other bats but come back to the DeMarini because of the pop ... it just fizzles quick. Just disappointing to spend this amount of money for something that doesn't last. As the bat features say "Recommended for Younger Players Who Take Their Game Seriously" well DeMarini needs to step up their game and take it seriously!
Pros: Awesome bat. When they say hot out of the wrapper, this bat is that and more. My daughter already hits good but when she hit with this bat for the first time, she was even shocked that she was hitting it like she was. Would reorder in a heartbeat. I love the way the pop sounds when she hits the ball... Would recommend this bat to anyone.
Cons: Not nothing!!!!! This is a awesome bat and my daughter loves it....
Pros: all heard â€œ Its the batter not the batâ€ True - but this bat makes good batters very good and very good batters OUTSTANDING! I have been softball Dad and coach to 2 girls for 10 years. my 10 YO got THE CFX for Xmas and she must be getting an extra 30 feet in hit distance compared to her old 100 dollar bat. This bat gives her confidence and zero vibration ! Its intimidating to the pitcher! pull the plug and give her the tools to succeed and do her best! Sick pop, great feel, great design,all around great bat! Any gorls that steps up with this bat sends a message that they mean business!
Pros: Great pop and feel. 13u daughter hit 2 homeruns in 2 tournaments back to back weekends.
Cons: Bat cracked after 2 tournaments (lasted about 20 games). Unfortunately this was the replacement bat for a bat that broke in the late fall. So no refund on this bat that didn't even last a spring season.
Pros: My daughter plays for 8U travel team and most girls are using composite in her league and team. This is her first one and I was unsure how she would handle it or how it would do. I gusss I was a bit skeptical, but she popped one out to the outfield like it was nothing. She has a great swing a lots of power but with her other bat, her hits were only going to infield. This bat definitely impressed me and gave her a lot of confidence. Bat is light and seems pretty durable.
Cons: the only down side, and its my fault....I should have ordered the 28/17. instead of the 30 like the bat coach recommended. its too heavy for my daughter right now. cant exchange it because we already used it. guess we will let her grow into it.

What does CF9 and CFX mean on the DeMarini bats?

Why is it recommended not to use with Total Control weighted balls?
Asked by Mike
Total Control Balls are denser than regular softballs and anytime you use a ball that is denser than a regular softball, you will risk damaging the barrel of the bat. If you were going to use Total Control Balls, my suggestion would be to limit the use to only an older bat that might be a game-bat any longer.
My granddaughter is using a 32/19. She is 5'5" and 180 pounds. I am getting this bat for her. Should I get 32/21 or 33/22?
Asked by Brian Lehman
Based on her height and weight, I would recommend getting the 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFS in a 33''. This will be a jump in weight that she will need to adjust to, but the 33'' will really be the best fit for her.
Where is the size information on the bat itself?
Asked by Ryleeâ€™s dad
The sizing information on the 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFS is located on the jewel piece at the bottom of the handle.
Can this bat be used with Total Control heavy balls, or will the bat get damaged?

What is the difference between the WTDXCFP and the WTDXCFS, besides weight?
Asked by scott
The major difference between the 2017 DeMarini CF9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFP and this 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFS is that the 2018 CFX has now implemented 3-Fusion technology. This technology is going to: reduce stings, optimize the the bat weight, and improve the overall durability.
I was considering buying the Demarini 2018 -11 28in 17oz for my daughter. She is 7 and swinging the Easton Composite Hyperlite now a 28inch 16oz. Do you think moving up the oz will be too heavy for her? She hits and swings the hyperlite Easton easily even though she is little. She 44 in tall and about 50lbs.
Asked by Elizabeth Softball
No, I do not believe moving up an ounce with the 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFS will cause your player any issues. The 3-Fusion end cap will optimize the swing weight of the CFX and should improve overall bat control.
How does this bat compare to the 2018 Rawlings Velo? Is there a big difference in performance between the two bats?
Asked by Brandon Mosley
Both bats are two-piece, full composite models, although the 2018 DeMarini CFX line has been selling a bit better and should perform slightly better than the Rawlings VELO in my opinion overall.
Which bat would have more pop, the 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 fast pitch bat or the PXT?
Asked by Katie
You will not see a noticeable difference in pop between either option as they are held to the same performance standards, but I will say that there is not a better -11 bat on the market than the 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFS. The 3-Fusion technology has increased the comfort on contact and the overall swing weight of the bat when compared directly to older model bats.

My daughter is 10 years old (2nd year of travel ball in Alabama). She swung the 2018 LXT (30"/19 oz) in practice yesterday with no problem. I want to get her one of these DeMarinis as well. Should I go up in size since the DeMarini is a lighter bat?
Asked by ed
Based on her age, our general recommendation would be for a 30" bat. However, if you wanted a bat into which she could grow with time, this 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFS) in the 31"/20 oz would be a fine option to consider.
My daughter is 10 years old. She plays in 10U. She is 4'10" and 81 pounds. Which bat would you recommend?
Asked by Madi
Based on your daughter's height and weight, we would recommend using 31" DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFS).
My daughter is 12 years old, 5' tall & 105 pounds. Should she get a 31"/20 oz or a balanced 31"/21 oz?
Asked by raider
Unfortunately it's difficult for us to recommend a weight for players as there are too many factors we can't possibly know by phone, chat, etc. Things like strength, swing efficiency, if you choke up or not, hand placement on the bat, and other factors can all affect the proper weight. We always recommend swinging the heaviest bat you can while still maintaining proper bat speed as that will provide the best power, so if you think she can handle a 31"/21 oz bat, I would go for that.

My daughter is 12 years old and she is almost 5'8" and about 150 lbs. We are going back and forth between a -11 and -10 bat at 33". What do you recommend?
Asked by Vee38
Based upon your player's height and weight, I would recommend going with this 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFS) in the 33" length. If you feel that your player can handle the 23 oz weight, of this bat in the 33" length, I would recommend it highly. However, if she has struggled with -10 bats in the past it might be good to consider the -11 size of bat to try and make the bat feel as light as possible.

My daughter is 10 years old 4â€™6â€ and 80 pounds and swinging a 30 in 18 oz COMBAT. She swings this one well. We are wanting to get a DeMarini for Christmas and would like a suggestion on which bat you would recommend.
Asked by Darla
The 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFS is a great option for a -11 fastpitch bat, and I would think your daughter would love it.
My daughter is 43 lbs and 4 ft tall. She has a great swing speed. We are currently in 8u travel ball. She got her hands on a CF9 -11 29/18 and the way the ball came off was unreal. We are looking at the 2018 CFX -11. Does anyone know if the pop is better than the CF9? And what size is recommended for my daughter?
Asked by softball mom
Both bats will be very similar. The pop, sweet spot, and durability. The material on the 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFS) is the same composite allowing for very similar performance. The size for your player is suggested to be a 26"/ 16oz. But if she can swing a 29/18, we suggest sticking with that length.
My daughter is 4'5" and weights 67 lbs and is 9 yrs old in 10u. She is currently using the Louisville Slugger X12, 30" (-12) 18 oz. She is choking up about 1-2 in. on her bat when hitting to help. I have been looking for something in the 29" (-12) 17 oz so she can be quicker with her bat but not lose any pop. Could you please give me a recommendation?
Asked by Rodney
The 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFS would be a great option for your daughter. Hitting is more about feel than anything, but I would still stick with a -11.
My 11 yr old daughter is 4'5 93 pounds. Not sure what size to get her, a 30" or 31"?
Asked by Dad
Based on your players height and weight, it is suggested that she uses a 31" bat.
My daughter is 10 years old, weighs about 95 lbs and stands about 4'7" tall. She has had a Bustos 30" (-13) bat, but it recently broke. I don't know if I should move her to a -11 bat? And if so, what size would be good for her?
Asked by softball dad
Based upon your player's height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting a fastpitch bat in the 31" length. However, if you guys feel most comfortable swinging the same 30" length bat she handles currently, that would be fine as well. The jump to a -11 bat will present an adjustment if you went with the 30" or 31" size of bat. However, I think your player will be able to handle the jump in weight after a little bit of an adjustment period.
My daughter is going into 8U coach pitch softball. She is about 48 inches and weighs 70 lbs. What is the best length and weight for her?
Asked by AShley

My 9 yr old daughter is 4'3" and weighs about 65 lbs. She is currently swinging a 28"/17 oz size. Her hitting instructor wants me to get her a longer bat. What do you suggest?
Asked by Softball mom
Based upon your player's height and weight, our general length recommendation for this 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFS) would be 28". However, since she has already swung a 28"/17 in the past and has been encouraged to get a heavier bat, I would recommend looking to a 29"/18 oz size of this bat.
My daughter is 4'9" (9 years old) and she weighs about 100 lbs. She has been swinging a CF9 30" (-11) and swings it pretty good. What size do you recommend?
Asked by Matt Birch
Based on the height and weight of the player, we recommend that she swings a 31 inch bat with 20 oz in weight if she were to swing this 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFS).
How do I know which bats are end-loaded? I am looking for a 31/20 composite bat that is end-loaded
Asked by shawn
The best way to learn whether the 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFS, or any other bat features an end-loaded swing weight design, is to read the "bat features" section. With regards to DeMarini, any time you see "Insane" in the product heading then that would signify end-loaded. Unfortunately at this time there are not going to be any -11 models on the market with the end-loaded swing weight.
My daughter is 5'3" and 140. Would you go with the -11 33/22 or the -10 32/22?
Asked by snap
It all depends on the age of the player as far as -11 and -10 and what weight is ultimately better suited for their current abilities. With that being said, based on your daughter's height and weight we would recommend getting the 2018 DeMarini CFX -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFP instead of the 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFS. The -11 model is best suited for players 14 and younger typically.
What is the difference between this bat and the 2017 CF9?
Asked by Gina M Goebel

Does this bat need to be broke in? If so, how?
Asked by san
The 2018 DeMarini CFX -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFS will be pretty hot out of the wrapper, but I would suggest taking 150-200 swings off a tee or soft toss and rotating the barrel between swings to properly break in the bat and see the full performance potential of the bat.
