Pros:  Is balanced the same as the CF8 (green bat). Not a lot of sting. Seems to have a good sweet spot. Very close to the original Zen but noticeably less pop.

Cons:  Noticeably less pop then the CF8 and the illegal Zen. I contacted demarini and was advised they used a "ceramic sleeve" that was inserted into the barrell. This stiffens up the barrel and restricts the "trampoline effect". We hit about 150 baseballs outside and the bat did seem to heat up the more my 12u travel ball son hit with it. He liked it even though the pop was less. He uses a CF8 during his games and had the illegal Zen as a back up. He wanted the retooled bat so we bought a new one with the voucher money.

Pros:  My son loved the performance. Very easy warranty process.

Cons:  We purchased a new CF8 for the Elite 32 at Disney last July, unfortunately by the end of the tournament the bat was already cracking. We went through DeMarini’s warranty process, and was issued a voucher number for a replacement. In April we ordered a new Re-tooled CF Zen (performance was not as good as the CF8 but still very good) Sadly like the CF8 within a few weeks it cracked. While I understand DeMarini’s warranty policies and I'm thankful for the first replacement, I still feel that a company should stand behind their product especially one that fails within the first few weeks. As a guy that works hard for his money I can no longer afford to spend the kind of money that DeMarini charges for bats that are less durable then their competitors

Pros:  for a brief period, there was decent pop, but soon after it started cracking.

Cons:  no durability. this is the third CF8 in a year. Last years CF8 broke in the cage within two days. once returned, received the illegal CF8 then the retooled one. after 4 tournaments its cracking. my sons buddy had the same experience. appaently these bats are not made for tournament players. ridiculous for the money spent.

Pros:  Great bat with great pop. Not sure on durability yet.

Cons:  Plan on this bat weighing at least 2oz more than advertised. I put my boys on the scale and his 30/20 weighed in at 22.17. Still a nice bat, but really a drop 8. Should have probably went with the next size down.

Cons:  Bat weighs 3 oz over stated weight. Too heavy for my 9-year-old to swing. Demarini Customer service told me it's because of the ceramic sleeve applied to the inside of the bat.

Pros:  This has been a great bat. My son loves the feel and it is driving the ball much better than his COMBAT. I don't allow him to use it below 60 degrees which I think helps with durability on the composite. They get brittle the colder it it. Price was great and we are very satisfied.

Cons:  None

Pros:  My son has wanted a "De Marini" - meaning a USSSA Zen - since he started playing travel. These bats have a huge following - the kids worship them. Well, at this price point, I could get him what he wanted without missing a car payment, and the bat is fantastic. We did the break-in precisely (200 1/2 speed swings, rotating 1/4 turn each time), and the bat is holding up well and hitting bombs. He is a big strong kid and a good hitter, and when he squares it up, the ball is gone in a hurry. Overall, the bat is: - "Hot" - the ball jumps off of it - designed with max contact area - the barrel stays at the max diameter over a large distance - reduces vibration to the hitter's hands - a tremendous value

Cons:  Understand these composite bats have a life expectancy - they will all crack given enough swings and under certain environmental conditions. Control what you can. Only use it for games, not practices or BP, don't let teammates borrow it outside of games, you get the idea. It's like anything else - take care of it and it will last longer. It is well balanced, but a little heavy toward the end cap, which can cause weaker kids to develop bad swings where the barrel lags behind the hands. If your player is not on the stronger side, opt for a shorter length, which will make the bat lighter and easier to swing. I see a lot of kids swinging bats that are too big for them. You put a smaller bat in their hands, and they become totally different hitters. It's not everything, but it definitely can make a difference. I'll take bat speed over plate coverage any day. Overall, I don't see a lot of cons here. It's a great bat - but like all composites, it will break eventually.

Was this review helpful ? 0 0

Pros:  After reading other reviews I chose this bat for my son to use for this season. With the insert it dors swing like a drop 8, but it was bought purposley for that reason. We are using it as a transition bat to get to a drop 5. Extra care was taken to get the proper break-in and my son put in roughly 200-250 medium swings between the tee and soft toss before use. It was then used for two regular games and continued to heat up to the point where multiple players on the team are now using it as it has become pretty hot. We did not have any previous experience with Demarini composite bats as I have been a Louisville Slugger person, but so far I have been impressed with what I have seen the bat do.

Cons:  Even with the extra care to break in, I have already saw some nicks in the bat that make me a little leary as what to expect from the durability. There have not been any problems through 3 tournaments with multiple players using the bat, but I want to see if it lasts the entire season. At the price I bought it for I will not complain if it doesn’t last, but it might hold me back if I had to purchase one at the full cost.

Pros:  Bought the bat for my 10 year old. Great pop, more than most alloys I’ve seen lately. It requires no break in as it’s alloy not composite.

Cons:  The grip is thin and cheap. My son had really bad blisters after his first use with no gloves. Replaced with 1.8 mm Lizard Skin and it’s perfect.

My son plays 13 Majors and he is trying to find a new bat or two.I have read the reviews on the DeMarini bat and it does not have the best reviews. I want him to get the most out of this bat. Is this a good choice or should I look at other ones?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen USSSA -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR has been a very popular model with loads of performance, but has had some bad reviews due to the durability. For your 13 year old I would look at getting a bit heavier model, which will increase the mass behind his swing resulting in more performance. Take a look at the 2019 DeMarini CF Zen -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTDXCB5-19, which will be a premier -5 bat.

We play 8U coach pitch and I have seen two of the non-retooled bats break. First bat, the barrel split like it was twisted in two opposite directions, second the barrel broke off the handle, will the retooled bat hold up better?

We have not seen an increase in durability issues with the re-tooled version of the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen USSSA -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR. We suggest reading over the customer reviews on this bat as they are generated from individuals that have directly purchased the bat.

I just purchased a Marucci Cat 6 27/17 for my son. He is 4'2'' and 55 lb. He plays 9U travel ball. I am not happy with the performance. I know the speculation of the weights. I am wanting to try a Demarini CF Zen -10, which should I try, 28/18 or 27/16?

Based solely on your player's height and weight, and if he is playing kid pitch baseball, I would suggest a 28" 2017 DeMarini CF Zen USSSA -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR. However, if he is playing coach pitch, you could consider the 27/16 junior big barrel model, especially if he struggled at all with the 17 ounce bat he was swinging previously.

Is this bat legal for 13u USSSA?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen USSSA -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR is not legal for 13U USSSA play as this level requires a minimum of a -8 USSSA bat. We have heard some 13U leagues requiring -5 USSSA bats though so it is always best to check with a coach or league official before making a purchase in this age group.

I’ve been reading that this bat comes in heavier than what is stated. What is the actual weight of the 30/20?

All bats are weighed before the paint, grip, knob, and end cap are put on the bat so bats usually are going to be slightly heavier than the listed weight. The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen USSSA -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR tends to be close to 1.8 oz. heavier than the listed weight.

How does the 2017 Blue CF Zen -10 compare to the 2017 Green Zen, and the 2018 Orange Zen, in regard to pop that each bat has? I have read reviews that state the 2017 Blue Zen has a lot less pop since being retooled. How do these bats Compare in Pop to the 2017 Marrucci Hex?

Pop is always more one of personal opinion. With the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen USSSA -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR there have been some mentioning of poor performance. Some of that may have to do with the fact people were accustomed to the performance of its predecessor which was recalled due to being too hot. So far, customers do like the feel and performance of the new 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTDXCBZ. Some slight alterations to the end cap and connection point design give this bat more balance and vibration reduction but hard to say if there is a gap in performance capabilities between this bat and the previous re-tooled model from 2017.

Need advice! My son is playing 12u, he is 5'6" and weighs 155 pounds and is currently hitting a CAT 7 30/22. Should I stay with CAT 7 and go to a 32/24 or this CF Zen 32/22? Can't decide!

Based of your players height and weight, I would recommend a 31 or 32 inch bat. The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen USSSA -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR might be too light for him as he will be transitioning to BBCOR in the next couple years. I would recommend staying with a -8 drop weight. In that case, I would recommend the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTDXCBR.

I guess I don't get the "re-tooled" part of this bat. What has happen to have a bat get a label like "re-tooled"? Is it hotter, was there something not right with the other CF Zen bats? Just wondering about that.

Some CF Zen models (including this -10) were exceeding the performance standards for USSSA once they were broken in, so DeMarini recalled them and released them again in this re-tooled model. The new model now complies with the USSSA 1.15 BPF standard.

Which bat is better: the -10 CF Zen or the -10 DeMarini Voodoo?

For 2017, I would say that the more popular option has been the CF Zen (especially before the re-call on the original model was made). However, we have not received a high amount of reviews on this 2017 DeMarini CF Zen **Re-Tooled** -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCBZR). It is hard to be completely accurate when stacking it up next to the Voodoo which has received good reviews, but not a lot of total reviews. Overall, both the Zens and Voodoo (DXVBZ) have been solid bats. I would feel alright suggesting either bat.

Yes, the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Re-Tooled -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR does require a break in period.

Also, be sure to rotate the bat to make sure that all sides of the bat are broken in.

My boy is about to start travel ball again and needs a new bat, once I saw the new Marucci CAT 8 I told myself I'm going to get this for my son. Been looking around but kind of sold out everywhere in a 28 in 18 oz. How does this bat compare to the CAT 8? Which one do you recommend? I like the one piece aluminum bats!

The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX10 would compare favorably to that of the Marucci CAT 8 in that both bats are one-piece alloy models with balanced swing weights. If seeking a quality alternative to the CAT 8 then this bat from Easton would certainly be a great bat to pick up.

The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX10 and the 2018 Marucci Hex Alloy 2 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHA2X10 are both quality bats and have similar balanced swing weights. The big difference will be the alloy used to make the bat. The Beast X uses ATAC Alloy which is considered to be extremely strong and powerful. The Hex Alloy 2 uses AZ105 Alloy which allows for thinner barrel walls and better performance. This means the ball might pop off the barrel with more explosiveness.

How does this bat compare to the Demarini Voodoo model of same length/weight? Trying to decide which one to get for my 10 year old.

The difference is in the material. The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18BX10) is a one piece allow where the Voodoo is a hybrid with the barrel being alloy and the handle being composite. This allows for vibration reduction. The end cap on the Voodoo is also more advanced allowing for better weight distribution making the Voodoo more balanced. The end cap also allows for better vibration reduction. If the weight and vibration doesn't bother you, the SL18BX10 is the way to go. However, if the weight and sting will effect you, i recommend the Voodoo.

What is the hottest 2018 29"/19 oz bat?

Since the 2018 season is still a little bit of a ways off, we haven't been able to receive a significant amount of reviews on the 2018 bats just yet. However, I imagine that this 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18BX10) will receive excellent reviews once springtime comes and more people get the bat in their hands.

How does this bat differ from the S3? My boys love the S3, great pop, but dents fairly easy. I know Easton isn't making the S3 anymore so was wondering how this alloy will hold up.

The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX10 features the new Advanced Thermal Alloy Construction (ATAC) which is going to be stronger than the HMX (Hyperlite Matrix) Alloy that the Easton S3 uses.

How does the Beast stack up against the MSBHA2X10 Hex Alloy?

The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX10 is very similar to the 2018 Marucci Hex Alloy 2 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHA2X10. One wouldn't be better than the other, it would just come down to the preference of the player in terms of which brand he would like to use.

What would you say about comparing the Easton S3 with this bat? Better performance from Beast X?

The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX10 are similar in that both bats feature a one-piece alloy design with balanced swing weights. With the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX10 being a recently released model it is tough how the performance and durability will stack up to the Easton S3 models of the past.

What bats are legal for 2018 Little League?

The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX10 is not legal for Little League in 2018. The 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BXH10 would be. For Little League in 2018 one wants to get a bat that has "USA Baseball Bat" in the product heading.

Does this bat have the same or more pop than the S3?

We do not have any reviews yet, so it will be hard to truly compare this 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18BX10) to an S3 in regard to performance. However, both this Beast X and the S3 are one-piece bats with aluminium material on them. Easton is extremely reputable and they have made an upgrade to the aluminum material on this Beast X. I would imagine that there is a chance that this Beast X could outperform the S3 bats that have been made in the past due to that upgraded material.

Is this bat comparable to the S3?

The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX10 is going to be more similar to the Z-CORE than the S3 although all 3 bats are one-piece alloy models with balanced swing weights.
