Description

If you want to start swinging out of your mind, you need the new DeMarini CF7 Insane! This season's Insane is a -10 CF7 with a slightly more end-loaded weight to create a sledge hammer effect. It also features the same D-Fusion handle technology as last year's CF6 Insane. 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. Ready to bust loose, this year's CF7 Insane is the hottest composite fastpitch bat out of the wrapper that DeMarini has ever produced. That's due to the all new Paradox Composite barrel and 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 CF7 Insane 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 Insane or nothing! DeMarini: Born Hardcore! The CF7 Insane 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!

cf7 insane Shelly player

Pros: LOVED this bat. I'm a very big fan of demarinis, they've racked in 26 home runs for me. I'm 16 and I've been using them since I was around 11 or 12. I got the cf7 about 2 weeks ago and it's already got 5 homers and a good amount of doubles and triples. I typically lean towards the end loaded bats, I feel like they give me more power. This bat has by far been my favorite one I could get my hands on. I would definitely recommend it!!! HUGE thumbs up! Also.... very sleek. Love the look as well.

Cons: None, very satisfied.

CF7 Review Amber player

Pros: Great bat, I have been using demarini's for several years and this one is by far my favorite, it is hot out of the wrapper and has a great look and a light feel even though it is end-loaded. It has gotten me several doubles and a few triples.

Cons: I wish the paint was unscratchable

Don't like at all Larry parent

Pros: Good looking bat and I'm sure it's a well put together bat.

Cons: Let me first start by saying Im a big fan of Demarini however I really feel like they have produced a bad bat this year. My daughter tried this bat out today and after about 50 hits she told me she did not like the CF7 and it didn't feel like it had the pop of her LXT nor her CF5. I let three others try this bat out and all of them liked the LXT, 2013 Xeno's and their CF5's much better. I even hit with this bat and couldn't hit one to the fence however when I used my daughters LXT I hit 5 of 5 over. I don't usually right reviews but given the expense I felt like I had to.

Not A Good Bat Truly Disappointed player

Pros: Beautiful Graphics.

Cons: My parents bought me the Demarini CF7 Insane a month ago, I was all excited because I had heard great things about it. I was disappointed from the beginning, the general feel was not good & it did not have the pop my Easton Synergy bat has. I used the Demarini CF7 in one tournament & at a showcase my bat breaks. With my Easton Synergy I always hit doubles& triples. With the Demarini CF7 never really hit anything good.

The CF7 is INSANE!!!! Meg (verified buyer) player

Pros: This bat has great graphics and great durability!!!!! it was and was not the right bat for me. This bat is for power hitters. I did have one home run though out of the 23 games i had. I also had numerous doubles and singles. but if i was a power hitter than the ball would be over the fence every time. Over all this bat is pretty amazing. i recommend this bat to all the power hitters out there and all the future power hitters!

Cons: It is a bit top heavy which caused me to drop my hands. I normally do not strike out but i have been lately, but im sure ill get used to the heavy weight feel

Upset

Pros: Graphics

Cons: We purchased this bat for my daughter in May and in early July she started complaining that the bat did not feel like it had any pop in it. We called Demarini and they said to send it back to them. Well they informed us that the bat passed the inspection and performance testing and that there was nothing wrong with the bat. We had a couple of coaches and professional softball players test the bat and they all confirmed that the bat has no pop to it. Very disappointed in the CF7 insane she had the CF5 and loved it she used that one until she could and that is why she wanted to stick with the insane bat. Now wish we wouldn't have and now she wants the Easton Mako which definitely has more pop.

CF7 Insane Mom parent

Pros: cool look. Seems to have decent pop so far. However, I purchased the exact same size and weight as her CF5 Insane and it's heavier by an ounce.

Cons: Paint chips very easily and they are deep chips. I have never seen this happen to a pretty new bat before.

There is a difference from the CF6 angel4451 parent

Pros: My daughter loved the 2013 Insane.... I bought her the 2014 insane and she hated it. Even though it was the same size, she said it felt lighter and it effected her swing. She never used it. I took her to try the new 2015 model and she absolutely loved it. She said the feel was good, and as it was written in another post, they made the end load more noticeable. In the batting cage, the Demarini rep even commented, now I know why she needs an end loaded bat. She was ripping them from the first moment.

Cons: none

My demarini cf7 Alexis, softball. player

Pros: Im in 12u and Ive had my cf7 for almost a year now. Im not a very heaver hitter and I cant hit the ball that hard. And as soon as I got this bat, I started hitting them in the outfield and getting harder hits. Which eventually helped my hit my first homerun. This bat works great! Its by far, my favorite bat.

Cons: Today I was hitting on the cages andI realized my paint on my bat had chipped or crack. the paint easily scratches off.

Terrible Bat KaSandra player

Pros: The only good thing about the bat is the handle.. it had good enough grip and thats probably thats it.

Cons: This probably one of the worst bats that DeMarini has made.. I got this bat for my birthday this past February and it took probably forever to break in. When it was broken in it was like dead.. It never really had the "pop" when you hit it in the middle. I would say this is one of the worst bats that I've ever gotten. Plus the colors are way too girly for playing softball. Those colors are for a little girl playing tee ball.

When will this 2015 CF7 Insane bat be available for sale?
Brad
Right now we are not sure when the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) we be available for sale.
Kyle
Which bat would have a better hitting response the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT or this bat? Also, which bat has a larger sweet spot?
K
Both bats are very quality bats and have performed very well when comparing performance. The DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) has a D-Fusion handle technology to help eliminate vibration and redirect the energy back into the barrel creating a more opitmal sweet spot. The Louisville Slugger LXT (FPLX14-R9) has the Composite S1iD technology which allows for a flexible, more forgiving barrel, a larger sweet spot, and a cleaner sounding pop with every hit.
Zach
My daughter has the CF4 Insane. I believe this will is her third year of use. It seems to be performing well. It is a 33/23. How would the CF7 Insane 33/23 compare?
daddy bob
This 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) Fastpitch bat will provide a slightly more end loaded swing weight, larger sweet spot, and eliminates vibration better with the D-Fusion handle than a CF4 Insane bat.
Mac
Does the CF7 have the same 30 day warranty(if you use it and don't like it you can return it) through Demarini as the CF6?
N
It does not look like Demarini is renewing their 30 day trial period on the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI).
Justin R.
My daughter uses the CF6 Insane and loves it. With the CF7 being more end loaded, she is a bit concerned about the feel of it. Will DeMarini offer the 30 day buy back with the CF7, as it did with the CF6?
KevTN
It does not look like Demarini is renewing their 30 day trial period on the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI). However, we have free shipping both ways, so you can get the bat, take some dry swings, and send it back to us if the weight distribution doesn't work for her.
Justin R.
Is the CF7 more end loaded than the CF6?
Trinergy
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) Fastpitch will be slightly more end-loaded than the CF6 to create more of a "sledge hammer" effect.
Aaron
What is the difference between this and the other 2015 CF7 bats?
kk
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) is an end loaded bat. The other CF7 bats are balanced.
Kara
When will the sizes be back in stock?
kk
We do not have a firm time frame for when we will get more 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) Fastpitch. Typically out of stock items take about 2-4 weeks before they are back in stock.
Jason
What would be an easier bat to hit with, an end loaded bat or a balanced bat?
aj
An end loaded bat such as the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) will be harder to swing than a balanced bat.
Kara
I am not sure if I should get the 32"/22oz or the 33"/23oz. I am currently using the DeMarini CF5, 32"/22oz, and love it. I would like to buy an end loaded bat. Help!
AW
If you are transitioning from a balanced bat to an end-loaded model, I would recommend staying with a similar length/weight as you had before. This is due to the fact that an end-loaded bat will feel slightly heavier than a balanced bat of the same weight, due to the weight distribution, especially for someone who is just starting out swinging with an end-loaded model. Therefore, I would recommend the 32"/22oz.
Kyle J.
Does this bat require a break-in period?
D
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) Fastpitch, like all composite bats, perform at their best when they are broken in.
Jason
What is the difference between the 2015 Insane and Hope models? It says the 2015 Insane is slightly more end-loaded. What does that mean?
calv
And end-loaded bat means that the weight is not perfectly distributed throughout, and has some of the weight pushed towards the barrel. This is generally preferred by power hitters as it allows a little more mass going through the hitting zone, but can slow down the bat speed of smaller, contact style hitters.
Kyle J.
What is the performance difference between the 2015 CF7 Insane compared to the 2014 CF6 Insane? The description states that the 2015 CF7 Insane has more end load compared to the 2014 CF6 Insane ... what does this actually mean?
Paul Luna
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) has more weight located in the barrel than the CF6 Insane. This creates more of a sledgehammer effect and packs more punch into the ball. If the player can handle that heavier feel it can definitely generate into more pop.
Bobby
Would this be good bat going from the 2013 DeMarini CF5 Hope?
Lex
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) would be a more barrel heavy or end-loaded design than the 2013 DeMarini CF5 Hope (DXCFH). If the player has gotten stronger and has better swing speed then that could be a good option but it would be an adjustment as far as the feel goes.
Patrick
I have never used a DeMarini and I am a 12u player going to 14u. I was wondering if this would be a good bat for hitting and bunting. If not, what CF7 bat would you recommend?
little bae
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) is going to be direct more towards a power hitter because of its end loaded feel. If you are more of a power hitter then I would recommend any of the other CF7's because they will have that balanced feel which is preferred for a contact/slap hitter.
Cooper
How does this bat differ from the CF6 Insane, besides being more end loaded?
oaktree
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) and the CF6 Insane are the same bat. The only difference is increase in end load on the CF7 Insane.
Jason
My daughter has a strong bat. She is now 12. She has used a CF5 31 inch 20 ounce -11 design. I want to surprise her with a new bat and I am looking for help. I Like the new CF7, but I am not sure what size to get.
Kim
The new 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) is a nice design but your daughter may benefit from the more balanced version of the bat as this "Insane" model is barrel heavy. That model would be the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFP) and if the 31 inch length is good for her in terms of plate coverage, you could stick with that and use a 31 inch 21 ounce model.
Patrick
My daughter is 15 about 125 lbs. I am trying to figure out which bat would be better for her. What is the difference between the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane vs the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch softball bat?
Shelby
The difference between the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) and the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFF) will be the swing weight. The CF7 Insane will have an end-loaded feel while the regular CF7 will balanced. Also, the CF7 Insane will only be offered in the -10 drop weight while the regular CF7 will be offered in -9,-10, and -11 drop weights.
Ben
My Daughter is 8 years old and 93 pounds. She hits for power, would you recommend an end load or balanced bat?
Softball Dad
I would recommend an end loaded bat for a for your daughter, and I think the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) would be a great bat for her.
Frankie
My daughter is 14, 5'4" and weighs 111 lbs. What advantage could an end weighted bat give her? She has rebuilt her swing from scratch over the last 4 months with an Easton ALU 31" -10 balanced bat. She needs a new bat and want to get one that she will get the most benefit from.
Bretdajet
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) features an end loaded swing weight, which is generally preferred by power hitters. By definition, power is the amount of work (swinging the bat) done in a given time. The faster a bat is swung means the more power put on the bat. If you can increase the mass behind the bat (in addition to keeping fast bat speed), it means there is even greater power behind the bat overall. With more of the weight being concentrated in the head of the bat, you can increase the mass in the bat. Characteristics of a power hitter means that they are on the stronger side and have great bat speed. These two characteristics together are why power hitters often prefer an end loaded design over a balanced model. One disadvantage to using an end loaded bat is if she is not strong enough to control the end load--this can causing hitching or looping in her swing. Ultimately, it will depend on her overall strength, hitting style, and bat speed on if going with an end loaded model would be beneficial.
Tessa
Is this bat considered composite?
h
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) will feature a two piece full composite design with a slightly end loaded swing weight.
Joe
My 16-1/2 year old Varsity/travel player is currently doing very well with the CF6 -10 (non-end loaded) bat. She is not a power hitter, but is bigger and stronger than she was last season. I am wondering if the Insane would turn those hard line drives into more home runs or if it is better to stick with what works?
lynnzrose
The end-loaded style of the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) may lead to a bit better power based on how the weight of the bat is focused to the hitting zone but it does make it harder to swing than a balanced model. If she is swinging the balanced design well, it may be best to stick with something balanced but if you feel that she is strong enough to account for the heavier feel that could also be something to try.
Patrick
Would this bat be good for my 11 year old?
CAB
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) will feature a drop 10 length to weight ratio as well as an end loaded swing weight. Typically, we would recommend this model for a high school or collegiate power hitter.
Joe
Would this bat work for my 14 year old power hitter?
laikcat
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) has an end loaded swing weight and it is ideal for a power hitter.
Jason
What is the recommended cleaning method for the CF7 Insane?
Dan
I recommend cleaning the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) with just soap and water.
Frankie
Is this bat for power hitters?

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.
