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.

Pros:  Still has a nice pop and nice feel to it.

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.

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:  my son just received the CAT6 and loves it. Great pop out of the wrapper and very balanced. He had to switch to all aluminum and -8 for the middle school team but the transition from a drop ten half/half has been seamless. In fact he has the CAT6 as his number one bat.

Cons:  None so far.

Pros:  Just bought the 29" for my 9yr old son and wow! I have never seen him hit so well. The -8 weight means the user needs to be physically strong enough to swing hard but the balance makes it much easier. One of the best I've ever seen in 5 years of coaching and that includes all of the expensive composites. Looks great too.

Cons:  Nothing yet.

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.

These appear to be different than the original CAT 6. The graphics are different and I believe the original had a taper at the knob. Are these a newly designed CAT 6? How else are they different from the original?

The Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 we now have in stock do not have a flared knob style, and "Marucci" on the barrel is in grey instead of red. Other than that, these models would be the same as the previous model.

My son is 4'8" and 70 lbs. What size bat do you recommend?

Based on his height and weight, would recommend getting the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 in a 30 inch model as this bat is not made in a 29 inch.

My son is 13 years old, 5' tall and 95 lbs. He has been using (and really likes) the Adidas EQT 30" 22oz, but we can't find that bat for sale anywhere, even on your site which we have purchased over 10 bats from your company due to selection, price, and trust. Would you recommend the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (this would need to be USSSA certified as well) as an excellent alternate to the Adidas bat?

First off, we certainly appreciate your business and kind words. As for the recommendation, I believe this Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 would be a great option as an alternative to the EQT. The Cat 6 will provide you with the same 30" 22oz. size, as well as an improved AZ3000 alloy for season-long durability and proven performance. This bat is USSSA certified.

My son is 13 years old 5'1" and 110 lbs. Would the 32 inch -8 be a good bat for him?

Based on his height and weight, we would suggest the 31" model in the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68. If you feel that your player has good bat speed and strength though you could certainly jump up to the 32".

My son is 12 and is 5'3" and 135 pounds. Would you recommend the 32" bat?

Based upon your player's height and weight, we would recommend going with an option of this Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) in the 31" or 32" size. If you are feeling better with 32" option that will be just fine for use by your player as long as you feel he can handle the 24 oz weight of the 32" option.

I am looking at the Cat 6 and the XL3. I would appreciate any thoughts in comparing the two.

The Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 and the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 are both one-piece alloy bats. These two bats will feature different swing weights though. The 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 will feature an end-loaded swing weight while the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 will have a balanced swing weight. The Marucci and its balanced swing weight will be beneficial for the player that is more of a contact hitter. It will feature a larger sweet spot but less concentrated in weight (sweet spot that is). The XL3 will benefit the power hitter more as the sweet spot on this bat will be smaller but more concentrated in weight. What this creates, is more of a pendulum/whip effect with regards to the barrel; thus creating more distance on balls that are centered on the sweet spot. A top heavy bat can cause top hand lag though. This barrel lag will lead to a slower swing and a bat path that is less ideal for making consistent/quality contact.

How long will this bat typically last?

The lifespan on the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 will vary. Depending on the usage (bat used for all practice, games, batting practice, only one player using, etc), the weather (weather under 70 degrees can diminish the lifespan of a bat quicker) and whether or not the ball is hit on the barrel versus the end cap or towards the hands will all affect the bat's durability. With that being said, the average lifespan will be tough to pinpoint.

I'm 9 years old, 5'1" and weigh 148 pounds. I've been using a DeMarini Voodoo 30" 21 oz. How will it compare to the new Cat 6?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is a one piece full alloy model featuring the AZ3000 Aerospace grade alloy. It will feature a more balanced swing weight than the Voodoo. Additionally, it will be quite a bit more stiff through the zone than the two-piece Voodoo.

I have twins that play 9 year old travel ball (kid pitch). They are about 1" and 5 lbs. of each other. The tallest is 54" and is about 68 lbs. We are currently using the Cat 5 27/17. One is the lead off hitter and the other is around 5th. They both are home run hitters. What would you suggest for the Spring? Would the CAT 6 be good for both? Should they have separate bats?

The 28" or 29" 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) would be ideal. It is great for power or contact hitters. The balanced design will allow for fast bat speeds. Also, the fully alloy design will not require any period of break-in.

I only buy Marucci bats for my 12yo. for the last 3 months he has been swinging a drop -3 Team Marucci. It's made him stronger, and he's hit a few shots, but he's not ready for it yet. What kind of results are reasonable to expect from his new Marucci CAT 6 drop -8?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is a great bat for a player that age. It is a one-piece all alloy design like his TEAM model. The CAT 6 will be more balanced but with a larger sweet spot. I think you will see better results with this CAT 6 due to the larger sweet spot and the lighter weight which will help him get through the zone quicker with faster pitching.

Is this bat as balanced as the Black and will this bat last me about two years?

Given the countless ways and situations a bat can be used in, it is impossible to predict how long the bat will last for a player. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is a durable model and it does come with a 12 month warranty to protect against breakage. The CAT 6 will be similarly balanced to the 2014 Marucci Black Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBB148).

I am 4'9",104 lbs, and I am 10 years old. I am swinging a DeMarini Voodoo 2014 and it is working well. I am wondering, which length do you think I should get?

Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 30" model in the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68).

Better bat: CAT 6 -8 or Easton XL3 -9, for an 11 year old contact hitter with power?

That will be a matter of preference. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) features a balanced swing weight, which is generally preferred by contact hitters. The XL3 features an end loaded design, which is normally preferred by power hitters. Since the player can hit for both power and contact, it will truly be up to them and if they can handle the additional end load of the XL3, or if they want to stay with a balanced model like the CAT 6. Both are great options to go with.

Description for Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68
When the CAT 5 burst onto the baseball scene, it became one of the top aluminum bats on the market. This year, Marucci raises the stakes again with unbelievable new technology in the CAT 6. Through endless field testing with the top players in America, Marucci discovered that vibration in the top hand is the most common complaint amongst amateur baseball players. Marucci has acquired a patented new anti-vibration technology that blows the competition away. They hired noted bat scientist Dr. Daniel A. Russell to do some lab testing against the top bats on the market. The results were shocking. He found that the vibration dampening rate on the CAT 6 is 5.6 times higher than the next closest competitor! For the player, this means that they can step up to the plate worry-free with one thing on their mind; blasting one over the fence! This is literally the smoothest swinging bat ever produced. Experience the difference of this one-piece bat made from the most responsive alloy in the industry. Marucci: Game Tested. Player Approved. This bat features the USSSA 1.15 BFP Stamp. The Marucci CAT 6 carries a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
