2020 DeMarini CF -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB520
Give your utility player a reason to improve this baseball season with the new 2020 DeMarini CF ZEN two-piece USSSA baseball bat. Updated with the most cutting-edge DeMarini technology, overseen by their expert team of engineers and baseball enthusiasts, this USSSA bat offers new flexibility, more power potential, and enhanced bat speed for a young utility player seeking to improve his all-around hitting game.

Bat Benefits
This new two-piece CF USSSA bat from DeMarini comes with the patented 3-Fusion Connection handle technology. This gives hitters the confidence and strength to swing with ease and power, knowing that the bulk of the energy on any pitcher's heater will be localized in the barrel of the bat. The barrel itself, too, is now manufactured with DeMarini's Paraflex Plus Composite technology. This new barrel doesn't sacrifice power and may increase a player's bat speed through the strike zone. And with a power hitter-friendly -5 drop weight, you can be sure to see some dingers this coming season. To further scare the pitchers on the mound, this bat comes equipped with the new ReACTION end cap that reinforces the rigidity on the Composite barrel. This bat is perfect for the utility player who is a genuine power threat and keeps the defense confused and on their heels.

Warranty
DeMarini offers a limited one-year warranty on all of its non-wood bats, including this CF ZEN USSSA baseball bat. Order your own today at JustBats.com and take advantage of our fast, free shipping.

Cooperstown with 2020 CF Michael Pecore Coach

Pros: Great balance and pop. The bat was a favorite go to for the players who used a 30” bat. We had good amount of home runs and line drives with the bat.

Cons: None to report, the bat was a little pricey but you expect to pay more for quality.

Good Balance Bat Rich Velchek Parent

Pros: My 13 year old son reports no stinging in his hands. He also says its balanced and feels as comfortable as his Mariucci 31/21. He went to this Demarini 31/25 to start to get ready for BBCOR and High School Baseball next year. Been using bat since release date.

Cons: None as if yet. Can only give 4 stars. Any composite always has the breakage possibility or the rattle in the barrel. So for none of this has happened. We will see how the bat performs in durability as season progresses.

great bat David McDonald Parent

Pros: Great pop in this bat. My 12 year old played in a 13u Labor Day Tournament and batted over .800 with almost 20 RBI and 3 HR after just getting this bat about 2 weeks before. He had never hit an over the fence homerun before. Hit one 280 over a 250 fence. Other players on the team started using it...2 other guys hit homeruns with it.

Cons: none

Excellent drop 5 bat Scott M Parent

Pros: Tremendous pop and balance at the same time. The factory grip is comfortable and mishits do not seem to cause much vibration. Nice sound off the bat, not the high pitched ping that some bats have.

Cons: No cons yet, historically my only complaint with DeMarini bats is they wear out fast but I am hoping this one breaks the trend.

So far so Good Michelle Stall Parent

Pros: The balance & load feel on this bat is excellent. Little to no vibration upon contact with the ball, only time you have vibration is when contact around the skinny/handle part of the bat, which is normal. My son was amazed at how light the bat was going from a drop 8 to drop 5, no significant issues on transition. Only had the bat for a couple of weeks, but so far very satisfied with the bat.

Cons: None noted at this time.

Buyer beware! Matt Mooney Parent

Pros: These bats have amazing pop and great balance with no sting.

Love the composite. Definitely has the most pop. Robert Moore Coach

Pros: Ball jumps off these bats. Went from the Drop 10 to the Drop 5 and bat slowed down a little bit but the ball explodes off this bat. We will not go back to an alloy barrel.

Cons: It is a little end heavy but hopefully the added weight ensures longevity. We replaced several Drop 10s due to cracking. My 12 year old converted easier than I thought he would from the Drop 10 to the Drop 5. He should be able to use this bat for the next 2 years.

Stay away! Jason Loveland Parent

Pros: This bat looks good and is hot out of the wrapper.

Cons: The durability of this bat is absolutely horrible. Demarini should be embarrassed how poorly the durability is. We purchased a 2019 model in July of 2019. My son is 11 and swings a 30/20. My son’s travel ball team takes July and Aug off and start back up in Sept. This bat was only used in 5 fall tournaments and batting practice before cracking. We sent the bat in for replacement in Dec. We received the 2020 model and used it April-June for 7 tournaments. Again for games and batting practice only. The replacement is cracked. This will be the last Demarini bat we will ever be purchasing.

So other than the color way is this the same as the previous CF Zen?
Tony
The only significant change with the 2020 De Marini CF Zen -5 is that is uses DeMarini's new ReACTION end cap to improve barrel performance without sacrificing swing speed.
Kyle
What is the barrel diameter?
Tommy
The 2020 DeMarini CF ZEN -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB520 has a 2 5/8'' barrel diameter.
Tori
What the barrel length is?
Matt conforti
Unfortunately the DeMarini CF -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB520 will not be marketed as featuring a certain barrel length. This is common practice with any youth USSSA bat. The only time one typically sees barrel length advertised would be with slowpitch softball bats.
Cameron
For 30 drop 5 is it really 25 ounces? Or does it weigh more or less?
BGP0
The DeMarini CF -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB520 will run about 1 ounce heavier than listed weight. One can expect a 30/25 to weigh closer to 26 ounces.
Cameron
Does the drop 5 come in a 2 3/4?
don hooten
No, the DeMarini CF -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB520 will only be featured in a 2 5/8" barrel diameter.
Cameron
Is the DeMarini CF -5 2020 allowed to be used in Perfect Game?
George ohmstede
According to PerfectGame.org, playes can use a -5 bat in 13U. Once they are in 14-18U, they must use a BBCOR model.
Kyle
We just received this bat (2 5/8 diameter) as a warranty replacement for a -8 2 3/4 barrel. Does it come in a 2 3/4 diameter? Or just 2 5/8? Thanks
Jim Mannion
The -5 model is only available in a 2 5/8" barrel diameter model.
Kyle
Does it require a break in period, if so about how many swings.
Ronnie carr
Yes this 2020 DeMarini CF -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB520 will require a break in period since it is a composite bat. It typically will take about 150-200 swings to fully break it in!
Ryan
Does this bat need to be broken in?
Jeff
The DeMarini CF -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB520 would benefit from a slight break-in of 50-150 swings off the tee, soft toss, front side toss, etc but it is not necessary if one does not have the time. A slight break-in process seems to help prevent potential cracking issues at the onset.
Cameron
Is there a way to identify my bat I ordered? I think my son got his swapped with a teammate's who has the same bat!
Daniel hull
There would not be a way to identify one DeMarini CF -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB520 from another unless there was a distinguishable mark on one of the bats (different grip tape, scratch, mark, etc). On orders via Justbats.com, most of the time a Justbats sticker will be placed above the grip tape of the bat.
Cameron
Is this bat available in a drop 5, 2 3/4 inch barrel?
Eduardo
Unfortunately it is not. The DeMarini CF -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB520 is only made with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter.
Cameron
How long will this take to break in for a 12u player who has tournaments almost every weekend?
grady openden dirtbags 12u black
Although the DeMarini CF -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB520 is marketed as "hot out of the wrapper", we would recommend a slight break in period of about 150 swings off the tee, soft toss or front side toss. Rotate the barrel a 1/4 turn after sets of 5-10 swings and use about 70% of max swing effort.
Cameron
Any idea when the 31" -5 will be available?
Brian Baumhardt
Unfortunately we are not going to be getting more of the 31 inch DeMarini CF -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB520.
Cameron
Need a 30, drop 5. When will this be available?
Ross
Unfortunately, this 2020 DeMarini CF -5 USSSA Baseball Bat (WTDXCB520) is a closeout item and we will not be getting anymore 30" 25 oz bats.

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.
