Great Bat Cody Player

Pros: Super fast break in time. 50 swings and this thing is launching the ball. When you make good contact with the ball, it feels great and you know you got it all. The ball was flying off the bat.

Cons: None so far.

Have a question about the DeMarini Flipper USA ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXFLA-19? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

At what temperature should you stop using this bat?
Bob Culbert
We recommend trying to limit the use of all bats - including this 2019 DeMarini Flipper USA ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (WTDXFLA-19) - when it is colder than 60 degrees. Around this temperature, the ball becomes more dense and could potentially accelerate the bat wearing down or becoming defective.
Taylor
What is the end load on this bat? 0.5oz or 1oz end load?
Trevor Johnstone
Although not specifically stated, most players feel the end load on the DeMarini Flipper USA ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXFLA-19 is closer to that of a 0.5 oz than a full ounce.
Logan

Arnie Linder
The DeMarini Flipper USA ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXFLA-19 is approved for leagues following ASA rules and regulations. We will always suggest confirming with a coach or league official.
Daveron
Will this bat hit the .44/375 balls, or is it only meant to hit the .52/300 balls?
Jose Moran
The DeMarini Flipper USA ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXFLA-19, as well as all ASA certified bats, is designed for use with the .52/300 ball. You can use the DeMarini Flipper USA ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXFLA-19 with a .44/375 ball, but wouldn't perform as well as if you were hitting .52/300 balls.
Logan
Is it single wall?
David
The DeMarini Flipper USA ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXFLA-19 is a two-piece bat with a composite barrel and alloy handle. As well, it is a multi-wall design.
Cameron
What's the difference between the 2019 Flipper USA and the 2018 model, besides the paint job?
rob
The 2019 DeMarini Flipper USA ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WTDXFLA-19 and 2018 model are very similar and don't have any differences as far as the technology or materials used. The only difference would be the cosmetics.

About the Brand

In 1992, DeMarini Sports had something to celebrate. The three-year-old company had climbed a rung on the proverbial ladder of success, moving its world headquarters from a dirt-floored barn to a slightly larger metal shack. "It was a big move for us," recalled Ray DeMarini from the batting cage of DeMarini Sport’s present-day Bat Industrial Complex. "The new shop was larger, more storm resistant, and -best of all- it had a heater."

In the early days, DeMarini Sports hardly made a blip on the radar screen of softball. With no retailers and virtually no advertising budget, DeMarini grew steadily by selling high-performance bats directly to customers. While established companies made "juiced" bats for the pros and ordinary bats for the public, DeMarini focused on making one line of high-performance bats for pros and amateurs alike. This approach, combined with a passion for the sport, led to the greatest innovation in softball history - the world’s first multi-wall bat: the DeMarini Doublewall.

Released in 1993, the DeMarini Doublewall was the world’s first multi-wall bat. Like a modern golf driver or oversized tennis racket, the Doublewall had a giant "sweetspot," which allowed average players to hit like pros. DeMarini’s sales exploded, and before long opposing bat manufacturers to notice. DeMarini - a homegrown company led by a softball fanatic - had shaken the establishment silly.

To understand the rise of the DeMarini Dynasty, you need to know Ray DeMarini. A cult hero among avid players, Ray DeMarini emerged on the professional softball scene at the age of 40, a veritable geriatric among younger players. With a scientific approach to training, a batting speed of 96 miles-per-hour and a bombastic attitude, DeMarini fast earned a reputation as a savage competitor.

In June of 1987, ESPN launched a nationwide search for a hardcore player to advise on a series of instructional softball videos. When approached by producer Erich Lytle, the biggest boys in softball repeatedly spoke of a five-foot-seven softball giant—Ray DeMarini. DeMarini had mastered reflex hitting, a technique that drops the ball squarely between the infield and outfield. Impressed with DeMarini's knowledge and scientific approach to training, Lytle not only hired Ray as an advisor—he hired him as the host. Together, they produced Ray DeMarini's Reflex Hitting System, ESPN's most successful home video to date.

Having garnered national recognition through ESPN, Ray turned his efforts toward designing a high-performance bat for the masses. To accomplish this, he needed an engineer. "Not just an engineer," he said, "but a boot-strapping rocket scientist who could build an empire with pocket change." Ray's call was answered by Mike Eggiman. Having grown up on a farm, Eggiman was adept at making the most of a situation. Case in point: the company's first piece of automated bat-making equipment had the heart of an abandoned washing machine.

With Eggiman as Chief Engineer, DeMarini Sports delivered a series of industry firsts: the first multi-wall bat (Doublewall Distance), the first high-performance bat for massive players (Fatboy) and the first high-performance youth bat (Black Coyote).

In 2000, DeMarini joined forces with Wilson Sporting Goods to develop the next generation of hitting technology. Ray believed it was a perfect fit, as both companies shared a vision of developing game-enhancing equipment for avid players. What’s more, the companies had complimentary products: Wilson was the leader in gloves, balls and protective gear, while DeMarini made the world’s finest bats. According to Chris Considine, Vice President/General Manager of Wilson Sporting Goods: "The thing that struck me most about DeMarini was their passion for sports and their true competitiveness.

Within a year, DeMarini unveiled the industry’s first concept bat, the $35,000 F1. Secured under lock and key at the DeMarini Bat Industrial Complex in Hillsboro, Oregon, the F1 served as a technological storehouse for future products, including DeMarini’s landmark Half & Half system.

In December 2001, 12 years after the genesis of DeMarini Sports, Ray DeMarini died of cancer in his Northwest Portland home. He was 55. The next summer, the Portland Metro Softball Association paid homage to the “King of Softball” with the dedication of Ray DeMarini Field. Formerly known as Delta #1, the field was DeMarini’s favorite place to test bats during the early days of business. Ray DeMarini—bat maker and player extraordinaire—was remembered for his high-performance softball bats and unwavering encouragement of everyday players. Today, a 40-foot sign announcing RAY DEMARINI FIELD graces the outfield, and an interpretive display chronicling Ray’s life greets players as they register for games.

More "Insane Dedication to Performance" is in store for tomorrow.
