DeMarini Bustos 10U Parent parent

Pros: Super lightweight. My 9 year old daughter can get this bat around much easier than her other bats. Plus, she loves the look (whatever).

Cons: Aluminum barrel doesn't seem to have as much pop as her teammates composite bats. Overall, a great bat otherwise.

Two Bats Tom - Ladies of Auburn Softball Sluggers ( coach

Pros: This bat is fast and has great pop. My daughter just started using two bats - one for faster pitchers that she faces - and this is it. She notes that she does not feel much in her hands - first time I have heard her say that - and that is off a Jugs machine with balls coming in at 48 mph.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Seen two break Chad B coach

Pros: Very good pop and feel. The bat looks great and hits hard.

Cons: I've seen two break of the older models break in half with little use. 2017 model dented up pretty easily.

Good bat for the price Steve coach

Pros: - Good bat with a lot of hitting zone - My daughter has used two of these for years, only changing size as she grew. - 13 good drop ratio for younger youth players

Cons: As they get older/stronger there are better bats. Previous post "seen two break" is a bad review, as he claims that he saw two older ones break and this one dented easily. All bats break eventually... and this bat is geared towards younger players.

My 12 year old daughter is 5'3" & weighs 87 lbs. What size do you suggest?
Pam
Based on your daughters height and weight we would recommend a 31"/18 ounce 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXBFP).
Carter
My daughter is 8 years old, 50 inches tall and 52 lbs. What size is best for her?
junglejim
Based on her height and weight, we suggest a 29" model in the 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP.
Jason
My daughter is 11 and weighs 100 pounds. She is 52.5 inches tall. What size do you recommend for her?
Monica
Based on your daughter's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP in a 31 inch 18 ounce model.
Cameron
My daughter is about 50" and weighs about 70 lbs. She has an amazing swing and can hit the ball great. I want to get her a bat, but not sure what would be good for her. Her last bat dented. Want to get a new bat that will last. What do you suggest?
marc
Based on your daughter's height and weight, we would recommend getting a 29 inch bat. The last bat denting could be a result of the previous bat being too light (if it dented quickly). If the player is stronger and can generate more bat speed than the average player of her same age then it might be beneficial from a durability standpoint to go with a heavier bat (-11 or -12).
Cameron
My daughter is 9. She is 57" tall, weighs 100 pounds, and is a lefty. What bat do you suggest for her?
boltfn
Based on your daughter's height and weight, we would recommend getting a 31 inch bat. The best weight of bat to get will depend on how well she is handling the current bat she is using. Based on the age of the player (9 years old) it would be wise to go with a lighter bat like the 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP.
Cameron
My 9 yr old daughter is 53" tall and 68 lbs. What size bat would you recommend? Do you think the Bustos is a good bat for her in 10U?
heat
Based on your daughter's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP in a 28 inch model. The Bustos will be a -13 bat making it a great option for a younger player who is still physically developing.
Cameron
Is a 32 inch -13 DeMarini Bustos a good bat for my 13 year old daughter? She weighs 119 lbs and is 5'5".
EDIE GAMBRELL
Since the 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP is a -13 this bat would be better suited for a younger player. For someone who is 13 we would recommend going with a -11 model if you feel the player can handle a 32 inch 21 ounce model. For someone of her height and weight we would recommend getting a 32 inch bat.
Cameron
Is this a full composite bat?
diane
No, the 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXBFP) is a hybrid bat that features Half & Half technology and an aluminum barrel.
Carter
My daughter is 10 years old and has played baseball for the past 4 years. She is 4'10" and weighs 105 lbs. She used a 29"/17 oz size last year for baseball. What bat within the softball DeMarini line-up would you suggest?
Susan
Based upon your player's height and weight, I would recommend getting a softball bat in the 31" length. Since she used that 29"/17 oz baseball bat in the past, I think she could handle the 31"/18 oz size of this 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXBFP) [especially if you feel that she has grown since last season]. However, if you feel more comfortable going with the 30"/17 oz size to keep her at the same weight as last year, that would be fine as well.
Ben
Is this legal to use in high school softball NY?
Saum
The 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP would be legal for high school play but at -13 length to weight ratio we would not recommend this bat as the durability would be questionable at best.
Cameron
Does the half and half technology on this bat allow you to use it in colder weather? Looking for a good bat to use in colder weather for when my daughter can't use her regular composite bat.
MA
Alloy barrels typically show better durability in the colder weather. A half and half bat like the 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP will have an alloy barrel that will help make this bat a better option in colder weather games.
Cameron
My daughter is 8 and has a Easton FS500 29". Her birthday is coming up and she has complained about hand sting, so I have thought about getting her this bat in a 30" so she can grow into it. Her league pitches at 35 mph and she has no problem hitting at 42 in a cage. Maybe the length and extra once will help her hit harder? Just want to know if that's a huge step or would help.
poeboy
I think adding only 1" to the length would be fine. You always want to swing the heaviest bat you can handle at a good bat speed for maximum power. It may be an adjustment at first, but it shouldn't take long to get used to it.
Kyle J.
Do you know what the actual weight of the 2017 Bustos 30/17 is (as opposed to the sticker weight)?
BrianTx01
The 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP is going to weigh approximately 1 ounce more than the listed weight.
Logan
We purchased the 31"18Oz for my 13 year old daughter for cmas. She is 5'2 and weighs 93 lbs...is this the correct size or should I have went with the 32"? She has not used the bat and I have original packaging but she did take the plastic off?
Pam
Based on her height and weight we would actually have recommended the 31"/18 ounce 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXBFP).
Carter
My daughter is 57" tall and weighs 73 lbs. What would y'all recommend?
John
Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest a 32" 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP.
Logan
Is this bat still ok to use in fastpitch softball? I've seen a few comments that it doesn't hold up to 2018 standards and that is why it is discontinued. I don't want to purchase if my daughter can't use it.
Derek Benavidez
The 2017 DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP is approved for play in ASA, NSA, ISA, and ISF and features the 1.20 BPF certification. Unfortunately, we do not carry this bat anymore. I recommend getting approval from your local league before using this bat.
Dan
My daughter is 7 and weighs 68lbs at 4ft 2in. Last year she used a 29in drop 12. The DeMarini Bustos is lighter. Should I go with a longer bat to keep the weight, I worry about it being to long?
Shawn Brown
For your case, I would actually suggest avoiding the DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP because you do not want to ever go down in drop weight. I would suggest checking out the 2019 DeMarini Vendetta -12 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXVCF though.
Tyler
My daughter is 8 years old, been playing for 4 years. All star, stronger type player. She is 4'7'' and approximately 70 lbs. She has a Combat -14 28'' bat now. All the tables shows she should be swinging a 30'' bat? My 12 year old son just went to a 31''. Could this be true, that she get a 30'' bat? What do you suggest?
Chris Smith
Our charts would also suggest a 30" length for her height and weight, but charts can only get you close to the mark, they are only a tool to help in your search for the right product. There are other factors such as swing efficiency, strength, hand placement on the bat, etc that all play a part. I do think that a 28", 14 oz bat might be a bit small, and would suggest something a bit larger.
Kyle J.
My daughter is in 8U softball in GA. They are not allowed to use composite bats. Since this one only has a composite handle would it still be OK to use?
Joe
The DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP will not be legal, because the bat is made of composite material. You are going to want to go with a fully alloy model, something like the DeMarini Uprising -12 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTDXUPF19.
Max
So the Bustos has a composite handle and aluminum barrel making it a two piece? Still learning about these new bat options...
Deryk
Yes, the DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP offers a fiber reinforced composite handle which eliminates harsh feedback and sting in the hands, while featuring a DX1 alloy barrel for strength and performance in this two piece design.
Logan
Fast Pitch Softball bat for Granddaughter She is 10, 4 feet 8 inches and weighs 75. Looking at a hybrid bat to reduce some of the sting she complains about especially in the early season. (NP)
Tom Boro
Thanks for reaching out to us, Tom. Are you looking for a recommendation for a bat here or a general bat size? Please advise and we would be happy to assist you further.
Tyler
Which bat is better the 2019 or the 2017 DeMarini Bustos?
Brian Anderson
The DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP and the 2019 will be very similar as far as performance and feel, so I wouldn't say one is better than the other.
Tori
My daughter is 5'4" and weights 136. What size bat should I get?
sharon
We would probably suggest a 31" length for her height and weight.
Kyle J.
How come I can't pick a size for the bat? Is that because there is no other sizes left?
Candice
Unfortunately, the only size we have left in the DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP is a 30''
Tori
What year is the bat?
Scott Weatherington
The DeMarini Bustos -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXBFP will be a 2017 model.

About the Brand

In 1992, DeMarini Sports had something to celebrate. The three-year-old company had climbed a rung on the proverbial ladder of success, moving its world headquarters from a dirt-floored barn to a slightly larger metal shack. "It was a big move for us," recalled Ray DeMarini from the batting cage of DeMarini Sport’s present-day Bat Industrial Complex. "The new shop was larger, more storm resistant, and -best of all- it had a heater."

In the early days, DeMarini Sports hardly made a blip on the radar screen of softball. With no retailers and virtually no advertising budget, DeMarini grew steadily by selling high-performance bats directly to customers. While established companies made "juiced" bats for the pros and ordinary bats for the public, DeMarini focused on making one line of high-performance bats for pros and amateurs alike. This approach, combined with a passion for the sport, led to the greatest innovation in softball history - the world’s first multi-wall bat: the DeMarini Doublewall.

Released in 1993, the DeMarini Doublewall was the world’s first multi-wall bat. Like a modern golf driver or oversized tennis racket, the Doublewall had a giant "sweetspot," which allowed average players to hit like pros. DeMarini’s sales exploded, and before long opposing bat manufacturers to notice. DeMarini - a homegrown company led by a softball fanatic - had shaken the establishment silly.

To understand the rise of the DeMarini Dynasty, you need to know Ray DeMarini. A cult hero among avid players, Ray DeMarini emerged on the professional softball scene at the age of 40, a veritable geriatric among younger players. With a scientific approach to training, a batting speed of 96 miles-per-hour and a bombastic attitude, DeMarini fast earned a reputation as a savage competitor.

In June of 1987, ESPN launched a nationwide search for a hardcore player to advise on a series of instructional softball videos. When approached by producer Erich Lytle, the biggest boys in softball repeatedly spoke of a five-foot-seven softball giant—Ray DeMarini. DeMarini had mastered reflex hitting, a technique that drops the ball squarely between the infield and outfield. Impressed with DeMarini's knowledge and scientific approach to training, Lytle not only hired Ray as an advisor—he hired him as the host. Together, they produced Ray DeMarini's Reflex Hitting System, ESPN's most successful home video to date.

Having garnered national recognition through ESPN, Ray turned his efforts toward designing a high-performance bat for the masses. To accomplish this, he needed an engineer. "Not just an engineer," he said, "but a boot-strapping rocket scientist who could build an empire with pocket change." Ray's call was answered by Mike Eggiman. Having grown up on a farm, Eggiman was adept at making the most of a situation. Case in point: the company's first piece of automated bat-making equipment had the heart of an abandoned washing machine.

With Eggiman as Chief Engineer, DeMarini Sports delivered a series of industry firsts: the first multi-wall bat (Doublewall Distance), the first high-performance bat for massive players (Fatboy) and the first high-performance youth bat (Black Coyote).

In 2000, DeMarini joined forces with Wilson Sporting Goods to develop the next generation of hitting technology. Ray believed it was a perfect fit, as both companies shared a vision of developing game-enhancing equipment for avid players. What’s more, the companies had complimentary products: Wilson was the leader in gloves, balls and protective gear, while DeMarini made the world’s finest bats. According to Chris Considine, Vice President/General Manager of Wilson Sporting Goods: "The thing that struck me most about DeMarini was their passion for sports and their true competitiveness.

Within a year, DeMarini unveiled the industry’s first concept bat, the $35,000 F1. Secured under lock and key at the DeMarini Bat Industrial Complex in Hillsboro, Oregon, the F1 served as a technological storehouse for future products, including DeMarini’s landmark Half & Half system.

In December 2001, 12 years after the genesis of DeMarini Sports, Ray DeMarini died of cancer in his Northwest Portland home. He was 55. The next summer, the Portland Metro Softball Association paid homage to the “King of Softball” with the dedication of Ray DeMarini Field. Formerly known as Delta #1, the field was DeMarini’s favorite place to test bats during the early days of business. Ray DeMarini—bat maker and player extraordinaire—was remembered for his high-performance softball bats and unwavering encouragement of everyday players. Today, a 40-foot sign announcing RAY DEMARINI FIELD graces the outfield, and an interpretive display chronicling Ray’s life greets players as they register for games.

More "Insane Dedication to Performance" is in store for tomorrow.
