retooled bat JayBird coach

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.

Lot's of Money For a One and Done Dissapointed Parent. parent

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

not worth the money Clay parent

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.

Really a -8 Father of a skinny 12 year old parent

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.

Heavy Bat Mark parent

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: Good pop

Cons: A lot of money for a throw away bat. I coach a 11U Travel team and we have had 4 Demarini bats break in last 2 months all of the bats were less than 6 months old!! Getting a 2019 with a voucher praying it last a season, if not ill never waste my money again on these products or guide my players parents towards Demarini.

Great Buy MS parent

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

Best Value Out There Dan coach

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.

Retooled Zen COcoach parent

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.

TOTAL waste of money disgruntled parent parent

Pros: the feel

Cons: My son "broke it in" like he was supposed to the first day he got it. Bat broke the next day during the first game of the tournament! They sent a replacement, and it broke the next weekend! Way too much money for bats not to last.

Updated Retooled Zen Review Chris Parent

Pros: The pop was great, it was very comfortable in the hands and allowed for a great swing motion feeling very balanced.

Cons: Durability ended up being the issue with this bat. At just under 5 months of use, with proper break in per the manufactures suggestion and never using the bat in conditions under 60 degrees F. the bat came apart at a tryout over the weekend. My son is not a power hitter by any means, and is only 5 feet tall and 115 lbs. We now await the warranty process. It is a great bat until it comes apart, which at less than 5 months of use is a little scary.

It WAS a great bat...for about 2 months CJBrooks Parent

Pros: Great feel and pop right away.

Cons: Within 2 months of indoor light use (alternating with another bat for practice), it cracked down the center during the first tournament. Going through the warranty process now, but very disappointed in the quality and durability. We have used Easton for years, with no similar issues at all. Wanted to see what the hype about this bat was all about, but will go back to Easton when the replacement DeMarini wears out.

Is this good for Dizzy Dean play?
rocky
Yes, the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Re-Tooled -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR is legal for Dizzy Dean for players that are 12 and under in 2017. It has been fixed to meet the USSSA standard that is required for Dizzy Dean.
Jason
Does the bat come with a 30 day trial period?
Johnny Anthony
No, unfortunately the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Re-Tooled -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR does not feature a 30 day trial period. Once it has been used it cannot be returned. If the bat were to become defective, then it would be covered by a one year warranty with DeMarini.
Jason
Does this bat need a break in period?
Scott
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.
Cooper
Which bat is better: the -10 CF Zen or the -10 DeMarini Voodoo?
Nick
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.
Ben
Is this bat legal for USSSA play? Our 9-year old is just starting travel ball and we wanted to be sure he could use this bat.

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.

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.
Gabe
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.

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.
studip
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.
Kyle J.
Can this bat be used in USA baseball for Babe Ruth?

The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen USSSA -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCBZR is USSSA certified, so it is not legal for play in USA leagues such as Babe Ruth.

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?
CT
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.
Kyle J.
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!
John
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.
Dan

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.

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?
Charles
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.

Daveron
I"ve been reading that this bat comes in heavier than what is stated. What is the actual weight of the 30/20?
Dave
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.
Cooper
Is this bat legal for 13u USSSA?
Colton Young
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.
Cameron
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?
Nick
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.
Logan
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?
coach
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.

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?
jlynn
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.

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.
