Description

Show your support for breast cancer awareness AND swing the HOTTEST bat on the field! This year's CF7 Hope is the hottest composite fastpitch bat out of the wrapper that DeMarini has ever produced. That's due to the all Paradox Composite barrel and the all new D-Fusion handle on this two-piece design. Paradox Composite makes the barrel stronger, while being scientifically shaped to feel softer on impact. This makes for a bigger, hotter, and more responsive sweet spot and consistently more powerful swings! The D-Fusion handle eliminates vibrations and redirects energy back into the barrel creating not only an incredible feel, but more POP! The D-Fusion handle also opens up a better sound on all hits across the barrel. The CF7 Hope features Stacked Double Wall Construction that creates a trampoline effect across the entirety of the barrel for completely optimized performance. At the end of the barrel, the end cap provides optimal barrel compression and maximizes the sweet spot. If you're at the top of your game and demand the absolute best, it's the CF7 Hope or nothing! DeMarini: Born Hardcore! The CF7 Hope is approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!

Best among some previously great bats sarfdawg parent

Pros: My daughter has had both the CF5 and CF6 models in previous generations, and they have both performed very well. We felt like the CF6 wasn't a huge upgrade over the CF5. However, we feel like this bat (CF7, -10, 31/21) is taking the pop to a whole different level. The first thing you notice is that the ball sounds completely different coming off of this bat, and when good contact is made, the sound is very noticeable. I believe the reflex action on this one is different as well. I know my daughter is growing up and all, but I don't think her bat speed is that much different; so I'm attributing a lot of the gain to the bat.

Cons: None so far. If there are any, I'll report.

Disappointed - 2 bats within a year Gail parent

Pros: Having been a loyal DeMarini customer, my daughter opted for the CF-7 (33/23, -10) when her previous DeMarini bat lost it's zing. She really liked the feel of it, the look of it, and the non-vibration handle.

Cons: We took the time to break it in before her first tournament (a good 200 or so hits into the net, using it at lessons, twisting it 1/4 turn each time). After about 3 weeks of use we went to our tournament and during warm ups - the bat breaks in half! Being a weekend, obviously we couldn't replace it right away, but Demarini did replace it. It took about 2 weeks as I believe they were on backorder at the time. Fast forward several months, bringing the bat inside during the winter to protect it from the cold, but now that spring is here, I noticed that the bat just doesn't seem to have any pop at all. It sounded "dead". I had someone at our training facility check it out and they said the same thing - it just doesn't feel right, doesn't have any pop. Needless to say, DeMarini will only replace a bat one time, so I didn't even bother to call them. So, needing a new bat after 11 months, we have changed brands - just not happy with the DeMarini bats any more.

Is this bat the same bat as the regular -10 bat?
lr
Yes, both the regular CF7 and the CF7 Hope model will feature the same technology. The Hope is the Breast Cancer Awareness model which DeMarini will donate a portion of sales to Breast Cancer Research.
John
Looking for a 2015 CF7 that is end loaded, is there one out there?
mac57
If your looking for a 2015 DeMarini CF7 in an end load, I would recommend the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) Fastpitch. It will have a slightly more End-Load than the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Insane (DXCFI) to create Sledge Hammer Effect.
Zach
What length should I get for my 14 year old daughter ?
SallySue45
The length of the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope (DXCFH) that you should get would be based on the player's approximate height and weight. Without that information we would be unable to accurately suggest a size for your player.
Patrick
How does the CF7 Hope bat compare to the CF5 Hope bat as far as being end loaded? Are they the same?
Bake
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope (DXCFH Fastpitch) is very balanced in swing weight. It will feel very much like the previous CF5 and CF6 Hope bats. There will not be any end load.
Brandon
How does the CF7 Hope bate compare to the CF5 Hope bat as far as being end loaded? Are they the same?
Bake
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope (DXCFH) is more balanced than the 2013 DeMarini CF5 Hope (DXCFH).
Kara
My daughter currently has the CF5 Hope (32/22). She is in need of a new bat which bat would be the closest feel to that? She is 5'9" and 125lbs.
Jamie Burns
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope (DXCFH) would offer the most similar feel to the CF5 hope. In addition to that the CF7 Hope features a new D-Fusion handle that will cut down on vibrations to the hands.
Bobby
My daughter currently has the CF4 (33" 23 oz.). She is in need of a new bat. Which bat would be the closest feel to that? She is 5'7" and 115 lbs. and she loves her bat.
RP
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope (DXCFH) will be similar in feel to the CF4. It is slightly more balanced. The CF7 Hope uses newer composite materials for increased performance and durability.
Kara
My daughter is 11, 4'11", and about 92 lbs. What size would you recommend? I was trying to decide between the 2015 CF7 & 2014 CF6 Hope. Which is better? Also does the CF7 have a clutch end cap? This will be her first DeMarini!
KysMom
The barrel of the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope (DXCFH) has been redesigned to provide a bigger sweet spot and more hot out of the wrapper performance. It also features new d-fusion technology to reduce vibration. The CF7 does not feature a clutch end cap.
Kara
I currently have the Cf6 and it works fine. However i am more of a contact hitter and was wondering what the best type of bat would be.
jess
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope (DXCFH) is very popular among contact hitters due to its balanced swing weight. I would recommend staying away from the CF7 Insane (DXCFI) which is designed more for power hitters.
Bobby
My daughter has been using a 2014 Louisville LXT and she absolutely hates it. She had a CF5 prior and really liked that bat. We want to go bank to the CF7 but I'm not sure which bat to purchase. What is the difference between the LXT and CF series?
Beckie
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) is a two-piece fully composite bat, whereas the LXT is considered a three-piece composite. The CF7 Hope features the D-Fusion handle, which will help to dampen vibration and sting on her hands as well as extends the sweet spot through the barrel. The LXT does not have that technology but it does have the TRU3 technology, which strengthens the link between the barrel and handle to give the LXT a trampoline spring and dramatically reduced vibration on contact.
Tessa
What is the difference between this bat, the (DXCFS), and the (DXCFP)?
K
Aside from the color scheme, this 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) is the same design as the (DXCFP). The (DXCFS) has a -11 length to weight ratio which makes it one ounce lighter than the (DXCFH) and (DXCFP) in the same length.
Mac
My daughter is more of a contact hitter and she slaps. What are the differences between the 2015 Xeno and CF7 Hope? Which one would be better for her?
tom
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) will feature a very similar design compared to the 2015 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch. The CF7 will feature a technology in the handle called D-Fusion technology. It really helps eliminate the hand sting and vibration felt on mishits. Both bats are very balanced and would be great for power or slap hitters.
Brandon
My granddaughter is 15 and is 5'4'',130 lbs. She is considered a power hitter. She currently is using a Louisville Slugger Xeno 32/22. Would the DeMarini CF7 Hope 32/22 work for her?
dewey
Yes, we would recommend the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope (DXCFH) in a 32" 22 oz. The DeMarini Hope model is going to be very similar in terms of construction to the Louisville Slugger Xeno. Both models are a two-piece full composite design that are well balanced.
John
My daughter is 4'7" and 95 lbs. She's not a power hitter. She can get it out of the infield. Seeking to buy her first composite bat. Would this one work for her in a 31"?
DD
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) would be a very appropriate bat for her. It will be very balanced and feel light weight. Also, the pop and performance is top of the line.
Brandon
My daughter is a 12U player, line-drive hitter with definite power to the outfield. She needs a new bat and has narrowed her choices to the 2015 CF7 Hope and the 2015 Rip-It Drop Ten Air. What are the advantages to each of these bats over the other?
Ed
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) is a two-piece composite bat that will require no break-in period. It features a stacked-double wall construction creating a larger trampoline effect. The Rip-It Air (-10) is a one-piece composite bat that will require a break-in period. Both bats are well-balanced. Additionally, a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the CF7 are donated to breast-cancer awareness.
Joe
Trying to figure out the different between 2 DeMarini bats, the CF7 Hope DXCFH and the CF7 DXCFP Both are 2 pc composite and both are -10. There is a reference on your website about the Hope having a 12" barrel but that is all I can make out
Mike C
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) is the breast cancer awareness model of the 2015 DeMarini CF7 DXCFP. A portion of the proceeds from the DXCFH are donated to breast cancer awareness. The two bats should otherwise be identical in regards to performance.
Joe
My granddaughter is 15 years old. She is now using a 32 inch 22 ounce bat. She is 5 foot 4 inches tall, and weighs 140 pounds. She wants to try the 33/23 bat. Would this work for her?
grandfather
At her height and weight she is recommended a 32 inch, but she can always move up to a 33 inch if she is comfortable with that. The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) would be a great bat for her if she is looking for a balanced bat.
Frankie
Do they make a drop 11 Hope bat?
glory3612
Unfortunately, the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) will not be offered in a drop 11 length to weight ratio.
Joe
My daughter is 11 years old playing on a select softball team. She's 75 pounds. We're looking for a good 30 or 31" composite bat. What is your recommendation? What are your thoughts on the 1/2 and 1/2 bats?
jennifer
This 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) would be a great choice. Similar models that I would recommend include the Easton MAKO, Louisville Slugger XENO, and Miken Freak Black. I would say that for most 11 year old players, the 31" length would not be too much to handle. We typically call half and half bats "hybrid" models, but that design isn't very common in the fastpitch market. Typical hybrid designs have alloy barrels and composite handles. However, DeMarini does brand any of their two-piece designs as "Half & Half". The two-piece design of this CF7 definitely helps eliminate vibration which also helps transfer that energy directly into the ball on contact for optimum performance.
Mac
What is the main difference between this the DXCFS and DXCFP? My daughter is 4 foot 7 inches around 105 pounds. What size would you recommend?
kay83
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFP) is going to be a -10 and the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFS) is going to be a -11. Based on your daughters height and weight we recommend she gets the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) in a 31 inch.
Frankie
I Just bought the Hope (DXCFH) and the description said composite material but on the bat it says half and half. So that means it is a mixture of composite and aluminum right?
Hogeye
No, the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope (DXCFH) is fully composite. The "Half and Half" on the bat is referring to the two-piece design.
John H
My daughter plays on a 18U tournament team and shes about 5 foot 4 inches and 137 pounds. What size bat would you recommend?
coach26
Based on your daughters height and weight I would recommend getting the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) in a 32 inch.
Frankie
My daughter has the CF6 and CF7 Hope bats with the same length and weight. She loves the feel of the CF6, but hates the feel of the CF7. What is the biggest difference between the two models that make them feel so different?
kyle
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) features the new d-fusion handle which is actually designed to enhance the feel of the bat and allow for better sting or vibration protection compared to the DeMarini CF6 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH). The difference in feel may not be an improvement based on your daughter's preference.

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.
