Pros:  My 12 year old was in a slump. He plays travel ball in the Midwest. I thought I would try and get him a slightly larger bat (31-21) and something that feels different than the Easton S3 he had been using. We broke the bat in doing soft toss. Probably gave it between 300-400 hits. Everything good. He took it to practice and just killed the ball. Played a 5 game tournament over the weekend and he went 7 for 11. He absolutely loved it. Hit the ball harder than he had all year. Bounced one to the fence at 240 feet. Not bad for a 5'4" 115 pound contact hitter. A couple days later I took him out to the cage and on about the fifth swing it sounded funny. Took a look and a diamond shaped crack just south of the center of the sweet spot. Well, I have done business with Just Bats for the last 4 years and they have always been great. I went ahead and ordered another G3. I'm hoping the first one was defective and it was a fluke. I hope this one holds up.

Cons:  Durability issue with first bat. I hate to be the first one to post here and be negative about this bat. Like I stated above it is a great bat as long as it will hold up. Will comment again in a few weeks on the second one.

Pros:  Unfortunately, I didn't have to wait two weeks to re-post about the G3. The new G3 I purchased after the first one cracked.......... cracked in the 4th inning of the first game it was used in. There is a sure fire design problem. Bat should really not be offered for sale.

Cons:  Durability issues. Bat cracks way too easily. Very disappointed with it. Stay away unless you want to deal with the headache. That's two G3's that have cracked in one week with very limited use. Can't give it 3 stars anymore.

Pros:  My son is a contact hitter. We're 400 hits in and still going strong. His confidence has soared. The weight is distributed very well throughout the bat. His bat speed has increased dramatically from the end loaded DeMarini Vexxum that is a half ounce lighter than this bat, with the same barrel diameter. He is hitting the ball much further and it's easier for him to control the bat to the ball. The sweet spot is huge on this bat. The ball jumps off the bat almost anywhere on the barrel. Hopefully we have no issues with durability. I have and will continue to recommend this bat to others.

Cons:  None so far. We'll see how durable this bat is. I'm keeping a hit count to accurately gauge the break in and durability. I will update problems or not.

Pros:  Great pop right out of wrapper, received this bat as a warranty for 2014 model which cracked after 3 months. my son plays 9u major and was hitting ball solid ith each swing.

Cons:  I will never buy another combat product again as this bat lasted one week before it cracked, I would not recommend anyone to waste there money on a poor quality product that has not proven to be a quality product.

Pros:  Combats customer service has been excellent!!!

Cons:  OK now the bad. This was a warranty replacement bat that has no warranty stamped on it. It lasted maybe 150 swings in an indoor heated batting cage and it totally busted apart. I'm a Combat fan but this is very disappointing. I can no longer use Combat bats because of the durability. My son is 5'0 95lbs. not a power hitter just a contact hitter and he has cracked 2 of the Portent bats. This bat the Portent G3 started to splinter really bad it actually is a dangerous bat. Please stay away from this bat. I did want to add that Combats customer support has been beyond excellent in this matter. I called them on the "No Warranty" bat breaking only 4 weeks after they sent it to me and they told me to send it to them and they would replace it. I have my fingers crossed that the third time is a charm but I have my doubts.

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:  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.

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.

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.

How do they match up with Easton bats for durability and feel?

The 2015 COMBAT Portent G3 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip (PG3SL210) is a one piece fully composite bat that will require a break in period. The feel of this bat will be unlike any Easton model. As far as durability goes, both companies make pretty durable bats. If this bat does break, it is covered under COMBAT's 12 month manufacturer's warranty.

Is this bat legal for Babe Ruth (13-15) baseball?

The 2015 COMBAT Portent G3 (PG3SL210) would not be legal for that age division of Babe Ruth baseball. The rules for that age indicate that the barrel cannot be bigger than 2 5/8 inches in diameter and if it is a composite barrel like the G3 it must be BBCOR certified. The model of that bat that would be legal would be the 2015 COMBAT Portent G3 BBCOR (PG3AB103) but it would be much heavier.

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.

Are there any drop 5 or 8 BBCOR bats? My son is joining the middle school baseball team and I think a drop 3 is a little heavy.

Unfortunately BBCOR bats are only made in -3 length to weight ratio models. The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen USSSA -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR is a -10 length to weight ratio model. The BBCOR version would be the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC.

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.

My son is playing 9U kid pitch. He is 4’2" tall and 49 lbs. Do you know of a good bat brand and size?

DeMarini is a very good bat brand, and the CF Zen is considered their top of the line model. We would recommend a 27" or 28" length for his size.

Can this bat be used in USA baseball for Babe Ruth?

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.

What is the difference between the CF Zen -10 Senior League Bat, and the CF Zen -8 Balanced, other than 2 ounces? Looking for a 30" bat for an 11, soon to be 12 year old. The -10 Senior League is much cheaper online.

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Re-Tooled -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter whereas the -8 has a 2 5/8" barrel diameter. The only other difference will be the aesthetics of the bat.

How do you tell them apart? Does the retooled have something written on the bat to let you know it is legal?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Re-Tooled -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR has a different color end cap as well as has stamp that is orange with "R" inside to illustrate this is a re-tooled model.

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.

Does this bat need a break in period?

Yes, the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Re-Tooled -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR does require a break in period. We recommend about 150-200 swings off of a tee, starting your swing at about 50% and work your way up with each swing. Also, be sure to rotate the bat to make sure that all sides of the bat are broken in.
