Pros:  Great balance, broader barrel with a more forgiving sweet spot, more control at the hands for last minute adjustments to the pitch vs an end-loaded bat. Our 13 y.o. daughter loves it. Great for slapping, but has plenty of pop to let loose and drive the ball. Definitely an advantage with the grip wrapped left handed for better control. Highly recommended for lefties who are slap/contact hitters or are looking for high OBP.

Cons:  None so far

Pros:  Did have good pop

Cons:  My 12 u daughter had managed to bend 2 of theses bats in less then a year thought maybe first one was a little weird to bend. And even our head coach thats been with softball for 40 plus years says its very rear to see that happen so we got her a new one since it was a good backup bat from her 2 peice compisite bat and now the 2nd one is bent now . 2 of them inless then a year bad design think they need to do something about it. I kept both bats thinking sending both back to them be like what the heck

Pros:  My 12 yr old somehow bent this bat as well. Not sure how it happened since it cannot be easily bent back. I guess i was lucky to get one season out of it. The paint is durable, very little scratches.

Cons:  Too much money for a poorly made product.

Pros:  I saw all the bad reviews but decided to go with it anyways because of the price. This bat has fared well with tee ball. My daughter does complain of sting every once in a while but other than that, this bat gets the job done.

Cons:  I don't know why bat companies make their bats white.

What is the ideal bat size for a girl that is 60 in tall and weighs 120 lbs?

Given those specifications, I would say that generally a 31" bat would the ideal size. Unfortunately, we do not have any 31" options available in this 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA.

Is the 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat available in a 31”/21 oz?

The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper is made in a 31"/21 oz, but we are sold out of that size so it is not listed on our site.

Would this bat be a good one to use even though I'm not a slap hitter. I'm a power hitter so I wouldn't know if this is the bat to choose.

The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA is grip tape oriented to maximize feel/comfort for lefty hitters. If you are not a slap hitter, I would not recommend getting a slap specific bat. A better option for you might be the 2017 DeMarini CF9 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFI. The end-loaded swing weight is very beneficial to power hitters.

Does this bat come in -13?

The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA is only made in a -10 length to weight ratio.

I haven't found many reviews on this bat. I have however found many reviews on the DeMarini CF8-10 DXCFA "Slapper". How does this bat compare to the CF8 -10 DXCFA Slapper?

The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA features a Paraflex Composite barrel which is stronger than the Paradox Plus+ used on the DeMarini CF8 -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFA "Slapper." Other than this slight change, the bats are very similar with the 2017 model being mostly a continuation of the CF8.

My daughter is a lefty and likes to slap but also likes to drive the ball. Is this a good combo bat?

Yes, you would be able to slap and drive the ball well with the 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA. The longer barrel will help with slap hitting but not hinder the ability to drive the ball.

Looking at this bat for my daughter. I need a 33"/23 oz (-10) size. Is this bat end-loaded?

This 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFA) is not end-loaded. If you wanted a CF series fastpitch bat in the 33"/23 oz size with an end-load, I would recommend the 2018 DeMarini CFX Insane -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFI).

My daughter is 5'4", 118 lbs and she has the CF7 (32/22) bat now for hitting and slapping. She has been using this bat for 2 years now. Should I move her up to the CF9 (33/23)? She is a power hitter and pretty good at slapping.

Whether or not to move your daughter up to the 33/23 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA will depend more on how you feel she is currently handling the 32/22 bat as well as if she has grown any since that purchase. We have a bat coach feature that allows a customer to enter a player's height and weight to determine proper length and we would recommend using this to see if a 33 would be advisable.

Could you please tell me if these bats are ASA certified stamp (ASA 2000 or ASA 2004 for Fast Pitch) or the ISF certified stamp note that beginning in 2015 only the ISF 2005 “plate stamp”? Also do you ship to New Zealand.

The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA will feature, and be approved for, the following stamps: ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. Unfortunately though we are only able to ship within the 50 US States.

Is this a one piece bat? Also what is a slapper bat? Can a right hander use this bat?

The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFA) is a two piece composite bat. The slapper means it is designed for left handed slap style hitters. A right hand hitter can us the bat, but it will cause damage to the grip tape.

Hi are there any differences between the 16, 17 and 18 slapper bats? Are there other slapper bats recommended? My daughter is a left handed slapper and has the 16 model and loves it.

Each year the Slapper's gain some new technologies but have similar features. The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA would be very close to the 2016 a good fit for your daughter.

Max Expert

Does this bat need to be broken in? if so how long?

The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA is a composite bat, so we would suggest 150-200 swings off a tee or soft toss while rotating the barrel 1/4 turn between swings to give the bat a nice, even break in.

Logan Expert

Can a left-handed batter use this bat the same as the slapper?

The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFA) is designed for slap hitters, however, a non slapper hitter could use it as well. It is gripped for lefties.

Can a girl that is a power hitter achieve the same results using the CF9 Slapper as she would using the CF9 WTDXCFP?

The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFA) is designed for slap hitters and if a girl was a power hitter we would recommend the 2017 DeMarini CF9 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFP).

What is the difference between the CF8 Slapper bat and the CF9 Slapper bat?

The main difference between the 2016 DeMarini CF8 -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFA) "Slapper" and the 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTDXCFA) is going to be the composite used. The CF9 Slapper uses Paraflex Composite Barrel which is 22% Stronger Carbon Fibers Compared to Paradox+ Composite that the CF8 Slapper uses.

Carter Expert

Do they make a 30" version? Based on my daughter's height/weight I am worried the 31" will be too much for her.

Unfortunately, the smallest size they make for the 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA is a 31" model.

About Louisville Slugger
Louisville Slugger

Louisville Slugger is the Official Bat of Major League Baseball and the #1 name in baseball since the earliest days of the sport. In many ways, the storied 130+ year history of the Louisville Slugger baseball bat began in the talented hands of 17-year-old John A. "Bud" Hillerich. Back in the 1880s, Bud was working at his father's woodworking shop in Louisville, Kentucky. Legend has it that Bud, a lover of baseball and a player himself, slipped away from work one afternoon in 1884 to watch Louisville's major league team, the Louisville Eclipse.

Description for 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA
New for 2017! The leader in fastpitch is back and better than ever. Not only does it feature a new number but DeMarini has improved the most popular model in its class and continues to lead the pack with its advanced features. The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA is perfect for those left handed, speedy slap hitters. In comparison to the DXCFP -10 model, the Slapper features a lower MOI and an extended 14" barrel for maximum plate coverage and better barrel manipulation. In addition, it will also feature a unique grip tape orientation to maximize comfort and feel for lefty hitters and will decrease the chances of the grip bunching or ripping in comparison to the 'normal' orientation. However, don't believe for a second that you must only slap with the DECFA. When you don't want to slap, this bat acts as a lighter swinging -10 with enough mass and pop to give contact hitters an advantage when driving the ball into the gaps. Like all other CF9 models, the Slapper comes with the brand-new Paraflex Composite Barrel which offers 22% stronger carbon fibers compared to the Paradox+ Composite on last years model. This makes for less composite material needed allowing for the lightest swinging DeMarini bat ever! Additionally, it allows the composite material to lay more consistently creating a more responsive barrel, a massive sweet spot, and hot out of the wrapper performance. The D-Fusion 2.0 Handle Technology is back with a vengeance and still eliminates vibration on off-center hits while redirecting more energy into the barrel. With a two-piece composite design, a 2 1/4 inch barrel diameter, and a -10 length to weight ratio, the DXCFA will be approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. The 2017 DeMarini CF9 Slapper Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXCFA is also covered by a full twelve (12) month manufacturer's warranty. DeMarini: For the gamers! Get yours today with Free Shipping!
