Pros:  The bat is hot out the wrapper, no issues with sting unless ball was hit on the very end.

Cons:  The CF Zen Junior Big Barrel was a replacement for my sons CF 8 JBB. The bats were both very similar with the difference being durability. First bat lasted about 9 months (league and several tourneys) while the replacement cracked within 3 months of use. If you buy, save your receipt! Getting bat replaced was not a hassle but you only get a one-time replacement, so you may get 8 months out of 2 bats!

Pros:  amazing pop right out of the wrapper very well-balanced feel

Cons:  The barrel cracked after about a hundred swings in three tournaments. The bat was amazing other than its durability and just bats was wonderful help as well as DeMarini in getting it exchanged right away. I'd look at the improved versions in the CF Zen line I truely believe this was mainly an issue in this drop 11 model.

Pros:  My son had gotten the 2018 CF Zen -10 28/18 for a gift, but it was 3 oz too heavy which made it difficult for him to swing. Demarini was awesome and allowed me to return the bat for a voucher which i will use next yr whrn he gets bigger. Finally, I am a member of the Travel baseball group on Facebook and this bat was recomended due to the drop and weight diffrence this bat is around 1-2 ounces off. His 27/16 weighs in at 27/17.7oz. for my son this is perfect!!! Great pop, and doesnt sting, and perfect for the kid pitch 8U Federation ball team he plays on.

Cons:  if your looking for a true drop -11 this is more like a -10 or -9.

Pros:  Looks good, Kids love saying, "Cat 6...Cat 6...Cat 6"

Cons:  The bat is dead. Small sweet spot. I got a 27/17 for my 7 year old and he doesn't use it any more. He went back to his older Easton XL3 27/17. I will throw a half bucket with the Easton XL3 and a half bucket with the Cat 6 and their is a noticeable difference in favor of the Easton. I read all of the reviews on bats and wonder, "how do 7 year olds put dents in bats??", well he did it in his first BP with the CAT 6. He's an average 7 year old and has slightly above average bat speed. I took it back to Marucci's head quarters since we live close to Baton Rouge. They offered to swap it out for free, but didn't have his size that day. I could bring it back, but I won't bother. He uses the Easton. With that said, I am a huge fan of Marucci items (helmets, fielding gloves, apparel, wooden bats), but pass on the Cat 6.

Pros:  My 6 year old son has always been an above average hitter. The pop on this bat is ridiculous... ball comes off hot and it's ready to go right out of the wrapper. After swinging Eastons and being displeased with the 2015 Mako, I decided to get him this bat. It is something special. Well balanced and ridiculous pop!

Cons:  Little pricey.

Pros:  sounds great, the ball jumps off the bat, weighted nicely for a jr bat. My 7 year old son just got this bat and he loves it, he is a little small for the size but he swings it well and the ball jumps off the barrel compared to the bat he was using. it was supposed to have a blemished grip and came with a free one, but the grip looks amazing so we have a back up grip now.

Cons:  the vibration from inside pitches hurt his hands, but he keeps swinging.

What is the actual weight of the 26" model? I know it is supposed to weigh 15oz, but 2-piece bats are known for being significantly heavier than the stamped weight.

I've seen bat weights stay true and I've also seen bats up to 2 ounces heavier than their listed weight. The 26" model of the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY will weigh right around 16 ounces instead of its listed weight of 15 ounces.

Will this bat be legal for 9u rec ball?

This bat has the USSSA 1.15 BPF certification stamp. If your league allows USSSA bats, then this will be legal, although it is recommend for players age 8 and under as listed in the bat features. You might check with your coach or league commissioner to see if your league requires USSSA or USA certified bats.

I'm looking for something high quality for coach pitch softball. My older daughter(12U) uses the CF9 and she loves it, so i would like to stay with Demarini for my youngest daughter. Can this bat be used for coach pitch softball?

We would not really recommend using a baseball bat for coach pitch softball. I would recommend checking out the 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXBFP) for your daughter.

I saw one expert say this bat is "hot out of the wrapper". By stating that, to me that's saying this bat needs no break in period. Another expert says to basically go through your normal break in process as with all composite bats, to me then it's not hot out of the wrapper. So which is it? My son's team just bought this for a team bat and I'd hate to see this bat get damaged because of an improper break in process.

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY, as well as other composite bats from 2017, are suppose to be game ready out of the box like an alloy bat. After speaking with customers over the course of the past year most feel the 2017 composite bats still require a break in period before truly being game ready. Thus, it would be prudent to put the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY through a break-in process before using for game play to optimize the performance of the bat as well as improve the durability.

Do you think that with the soon to be rule changes in 2018 that bat manufactures (specifically DeMarini) will create a -11 or -12 in the 2-5/8 barrel specifically for players like my 8 yr old who has problem generating bat speed for the -10 models?

Unfortunately we don't have any information on what bat manufacturers will be releasing for the upcoming USABat changes at this time, so I can't speculate as to what sizes they will be making.

I want to order this bat for my almost 7 year old. He has an aggressive swing. With this bat being composite and made for kids under 8, do you think that this option would be okay for him?

Yes, I think that this bat would work well for a player that at 7 years old. As long as the velocities that he is facing stay around 40-45 mph (or below), he should be able to experience excellent durability and performance off this 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (DXCBY).

I see you keep saying this bat is intended for coach pitch. However, is this an okay option for machine pitch 36-42 mph?

This 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (DXCBY) will be able to handle 36-42 mph speed from a pitching machine. However, if you take this bat to be used on pitching velocities that exceed 45 mph, your bat may experience some lacking durability.

Does the junior big barrel have as much pop as the senior league big barrel? My son is 8 and plays coach pitch and swings a 28/18 COMBAT MAXUM right now.

For coach pitch leagues, Junior Big Barrel bats are typically the way to go. They will have thinner barrel walls than Senior League bats that are designed for higher velocities, allowing the Junior Big Barrels to have a bit more pop in coach pitch/machine pitch situations.

Will this bat be okay for my 9 year old son who plays 9U travel ball kid pitch tournaments? Any breaking in needed or is hot out of the wrapper? Any other suggestions/recommendations or details you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY is meant for coach pitch leagues with velocity under 40 MPH. The barrel walls are thin on Junior Big Barrel bats and will not hold up well when the velo starts to exceed the 40 MPH threshold. If looking for a kid pitch bat then you are going to want to look at Youth Big Barrel or Senior League Bats. The DeMarini CF Zen is a great option to consider since it is a two-piece, fully composite bat with a balanced swing weight. The two piece bat will help reduce vibration from off-centered hits and the new composite material will make this bat hot out of the wrapper.

Does this bat need to be broken in or is it hot out of the wrapper? Looking to purchase this bat and want to make sure it is ready to go because my 7u kid has a tourney this weekend.

To properly break in the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (DXCBY), we recommend taking 150-200 swings playing soft toss or off a tee using real baseballs. Begin swinging at 40% power and work our way up to full strength as you get closer to 200 swings.

What is the difference between this bat and the DXCZB?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY, like all other Junior Big Barrel bats, is going to be good for usage in Coach Pitch only. Using it in kid pitch will lead to durability issues. The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Balanced Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZ is the Youth Big Barrel model, making it suitable for usage in kid pitch.

Why do you say this bat should only be used for coach pitch and not kid pitch?

Junior Big Barrel bats like the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: DXCBY are shorter, lighter baseball bats with a larger barrel designed for players 8 years old and younger. These baseball bats generally have a 2 5/8 Inch or 2 3/4 Inch Barrel Diameter and a Length to Weight Ratio of -10, -10.5, -11, or -12. Junior Big Barrel bats are also commonly labeled as "Coach Pitch Baseball Bats". To get the longest useful life possible, these types of baseball bats should be used exclusively in leagues where the coach pitches to the players.

My son is 7, weighs 50 lbs and is 4'1". Needs a bat with the USA stamp on it. Does this have the stamp or recommend another?

Unfortunately Marucci does not make any USA certified bats so the Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: MJBBC6 would not be legal for your son. Based on his height and weight, we would recommend getting a USA bat in a 28 inch length. The weight of the bat is more reflective on the player's strength but generally speaking you are seeking either a 16 ounce (-12 bat) or 17 ounce (-11 model).

Can my grandsons (10 and 9 years of age) use this bat for recreation baseball in Georgia?

I would recommend checking with the league to ask if they are still permitting bats for use that have the USSSA 1.15 stamp on them. If they are permitting bats with that stamp, this Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6) would be fine for use. That being said, this CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel bat is meant for coach pitch and machine pitch baseball. If your players are playing in kid pitch baseball leagues, the CAT bat that you will want to view is the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC7X10).

My son is almost 7 years old, about 48" tall and a little over 50lbs. In the summer he plays coach pitch and now he started machine pitch for fall. Is there a bat that you would recommend for both?

It's hard to recommend a bat for both as coach pitch and machine pitch leagues can have different bat rules. If both of your leagues allow 2 3/4" barrel bats, then this would be a good bat to use.

My son is 5 and in coach's pitch this fall. Height is 44" and weight is 37 pounds. The CAT 6 looks like it has the best reviews. Your recommendations? Any other bats other than this one and recommended size?

Currently, my six year old is using an Easton Mako JBB (27"/15 oz) for his coach pitch league (swings it well). Looking to get him a new bat that is a -10. Looking at the Marucci CAT JBB (26/16) or the Marucci Hex Composite (27/17). Which direction should I go?

Since your player is currently swinging a 27" bat, I would recommend keeping him at that same length. Because of that, I would probably suggest getting the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy (MSBAHAX10) or the Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6) in the 27"/17 oz size. That 17 oz weight may provide a little bit of an adjustment period for your player, but I think he will be just fine with time. Both of the bats have been excellently rated bats and I really believe that either would be a great bat for your player. However, if you wanted to get the better deal, I would suggest this CAT 6 since it can be bought for cheaper.

My son currently hits a 26" Easton 2 1/4 -11 and has good bat speed and control. He is starting a coach pitch league and can use the 2 3/4 bats. Friend has the 27" Junior CAT 6 and my son borrowed it. He had an obvious swing speed drop and lost his control. Should I get him a 26" or let him learn to get used to the 27"? He is 50" tall and weighs 53 lbs and is a contact hitter. What are the benefits to this bat verses the Easton S3?

The correct size to get is really up to you. If he is having success with the smaller bat (26") then it would be wise to stick with this size with the younger player. If you are thinking about what to get for down the road then it would certainly be better to go with the 27" bat as he will surely outgrow a 26" bat between now and next spring. As for the comparisons between the Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: MJBBC6 and the Easton S3, both of these bats are one-piece fully alloy designs with balanced swing weights. Hard to say which bat is necessarily the better one to get; we would defer to customer reviews as well as any personal experience you have with either of these bats to make your selection.

My son is transitioning into coach pitch and is 7. he will turn 8 during season and play on 8u team. He is more of a contact hitter and is 50" tall and about 53 lbs. He currently swings a 2 1/4 bat at 26" 15 oz. He gets around on it pretty good and has great control of the bat. He has tried his friends 27" CAT 6 and we saw a big difference in his swing speed and he had lost all the control he had. Do you recommend a 26" CAT 6 junior or go ahead and get the 27" and let him learn to swing it? I want to get him a 2 3/4 for the bigger barrel but don't want to kill his swing speed and control.

If he was not comfortable with the 27" bat I would not recommend getting it. It sounds like he should go ahead and get the Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: MJBBC6 in the 26" version.

My son is coming out of tee ball using a 25"/13 oz sized bat and is going into coach pitch. Is the CAT 6 (25"/15 oz) going to be too heavy for him?

I would imagine that if your player has grown since last using the 25"/13 oz bat, he should be just fine using the 25"/15 oz model of this Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6) for use in coach pitch. If you feel like he will be wanting to use the bat longer into the future, I would maybe even recommend going to the 26"/16 oz size.

My 7 year old son plays machine pitch (35-40 mph). Can he use this bat? I'm considering purchasing the 27".

The Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: MJBBC6 would not be advised for use in machine pitch leagues, as the bat is not built to handle speeds faster than coach pitch.

Is this bat better than the new 2016 Easton S3 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: JBB16S310B? Since this bat is $179 and the Easton is $99.

Both of these are good quality bats. The Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: MJBBC6 features anti-vibration technology and a longer barrel. It also has optimized wall thickness that allows for faster swing speeds. These components reflect the difference in price.

How will the swing weight compare to an Easton S3 2 3/4 jr big barrel? 27/17

My son is 7 and plays on a travel ball team (coach pitch). He needs a 27/17 bat. Should he get the CAT 6 jbb or the Hex Alloy sl 2 3/4"? Which is the better bat? Does one bat have more pop than the other?

The Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6) and the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) are both great bats to consider. The Marucci Cat 6 will feature thinner walls which will translate into more of a trampoline effect on the ball but the thinner walls make it more susceptible to denting as it cannot handle much velocity; which is why it's made for coach pitch. The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) will have thicker walls and less trampoline effect but can withstand velocity better and will be a bat that your son should be able to get more use out of moving forward.

My 8 year old, 90 pound 50 inch tall player will be making the move to his first kid pitch this season (9u). Up to now he has been swinging an S1 26 inch 16 ounce in coach pitch. I wanted to try the Cat 6, but not sure if I go with a 26 or 27 inch for his first kid pitch season?

If he is playing kid pitch, you will not want to use a Junior Big Barrel model like the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6). Junior Big Barrel bats will dent if used to hit kid pitch style pitching. You would want to use a Youth model or a Senior League model. Based on height and weight, we would recommend a 29 inch 19 ounce size.

What is a good bat for machine pitch? The speed is about 45 mph. The bat diameter is 2 5/8 inches maximum.

For pitches of that speed, you will want to use a Senior League or "Youth Big Barrel" model rather than a Junior Big Barrel bat like this 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6). Here is a link to some models that would qualify: http://www.justbats.com/products/barrel%20diameter~2%205-8/baseball%20bats~youth%20big%20barrel/?sortBy=TotalSales%20Descending&size=24.

What bat is seeing more pop in younger players? The 27 inch 17 ounce Easton S1 or the 27 inch 17 ounce Cat 6? My kid has an S1, but I am hearing great things about the Cat 6.

"Pop" is more of a term associated with the skill of the player rather than a quantifiable feature of the bat. Due to the safety restrictions imposed on the bats, most models will perform very similarly at their peak the difference would be in the feel of the bat and the durability. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6) and the Easton S1 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (JBB13S1) compare well in those aspects. The CAT 6 would be hot out of the wrapper while the S1 may require a bit of break-in to get going.

Would you suggest this bat for a 9 to 10 year old kid pitch league? If not, my son is 9 years old, 56", and 60 lbs. What bat would you suggest?

The barrel walls on the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6) might be a little too thin for 9 & 10 year old kid pitch which can lead to premature damage. If you are wanting to stay with the Cat 6 I would recommend the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68). This bat will have thicker walls and will be able to withstand the pitching speeds better.

My son is 7 (coach pitch) 50" tall and approximately 55-60 lbs. My question is, should I get the 27"17 oz. or just stay with the 26"16 oz. model?

For a player of his size, our bat coach would actually recommend the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6) in a 27" 17 oz. model. Typically, most players are able to swing the drop 10 in that size fairly comfortably.

My son is 8. He is 53" tall and weighs 70 lbs. He wants a CAT 6. He currently uses an Easton MAKO 27/15. He is a power hitter. I am trying to decide if this would be a good choice for him or not. Any tips are appreciated.

The CAT6 models would be a great choice. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6) is typically only used in Coach Pitch leagues. If he is in kid pitch I would check out this version: 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68). The one-piece fully alloy design will provide a stiff feel and great performance.

I'm looking for a replacement for the CAT 5 (MJBB2) bat we had that is now discontinued. Is this the closest thing you've seen to that bat? What other bats would you recommend that are very similar? My son seemed to really hit the ball far with the CAT 5.

This 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6) would be the most comparable design to the CAT 5 Junior Big Barrel. For other -10 Junior models, I would check out the Easton S3 and Slugger Assault: http://goo.gl/67bfL9.

How did this bat compare with the Marucci Cat 5 MJBB2 bat? Is it the same material? Built similar? Same pop as the Cat 5? My son had great success with it and now, I've got another one coming up through the younger ranks.

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6) will feel similar to the older CAT 5. The AZ3000 alloy material will be very similar between both bats. The new CAT 6 will eliminate more hand sting and vibration due to the anti-vibration technology.

Description for Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: MJBBC6
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 BPF 1.15 Stamp.
