New for 2013! That's right folks! The Juggernaut has returned to field, and it's going to blow you away! HOT is really the only way to describe the new J3 from DeMarini. The J3 features an end-loaded two-piece design that is made entirely from DeMarini's TR3 F.L.O. Composite. The fused layers of carbon that make up the TR3 F.L.O. Composite have enabled DeMarini to construct a bat that has a stronger handle and barrel, with less weight throughout. This composite material breaks in like none other to create a bat that is capable of nothing but high performance! The barrel of J3 also features the next generation of DoubleWall, called Stacked Composite. By optimizing multiple walls that are separated by DeMarini Power Ply, Stacked Composite works with the Half and Half design to create the largest, most responsive sweet spot in the industry and the most power on off-center hits! The handle of the J3 is wrapped with a premium two-piece Hybrid Comfort Grip for ultimate comfort and tack. The J3 also features a Rotation Index to help give players the most even break-in possible, so that they can start reaping the rewards of a fully broken Juggernaut more quickly! DeMarini: Born Hardcore! The J3 is approved for play in USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!

Pros: Purchased both the USSSA and ASA Juggy, as I play in two seperate Men's leagues. Both are "hot" out of the wrapper and have a nice end loaded feel, but not too much. A must have for any serious player, especially one who reps the D.

Cons: Only issue is price, but you're getting a solid product, plus both have the new stamps for 2013.

Pros: I was not willing to buy a new bat until I found one that I knew I liked. Knowing that I needed to buy one with the new stamp I was reluctant to purchase a bat without trying it out first. I played in a tournament and a teammate of mine, who had just bought this bat, unwrapped it and allowed me to swing it. The USSSA 34" 28 oz. was the bat I was hoping to find. It was hot right out of the wrapper. The ball just exploded off the bat. I highly recommend this bat to anyone that is serious about softball. I am sold and I'm in the process of getting one for myself now.

Cons: Had trouble keeping the ball in the park.

Pros: So, I've had my eye on this bat since it came out. I had the off chance to swing it which really helped me decide what I wanted. The only chance I had to swing it before I bought it was a total of 5 pitches, 3 inside that I pulled down the line. Pitches 4 and 5, (giving wind its due) were well into the soccer fields that start at 360 from home plate. All of the hits felt amazing, and the ball came off incredibly hot. Freaking excited for mine to get here.

Cons: I ordered mine today, so I still haven't had a chance to put lots of hits on it yet.

J. Gains

Pros: Man this bat has got a lot of pop. Although, it took about 100 swings to make this bat hot. My brother and I both drop bombs with this bat nearly every game. Some travel as far as 375-400ft easy. This is definitely a big hitters bat. Huge sweet spot, and hits nice line drives no problem. I would definitely recommend taking some B.P. with this bat before hand because it is a tad end heavy and it flexes during swing.

Cons: Knocking third baseman's glove off. Lost balls due to homeruns. End loaded (heavy) Break in period. It will slow your swing down if you are a smaller guy.

Pros: Sick hot out of the wrapper. We've had it for 6 games and every night we hear the other (losing) team complaining and muttering things like 'that can't be legal'. Swallowed the ego and bought the 27oz (had been using all 28oz bats) - best equipment decision I have ever made!

Cons: Lost a lot of $7 Grey Dots. Constant whining from opposition that we only beat them because of the bat.

Pros: Amazing pop, lots of flex in the handle. I have the l4 helmer as well and the j3 out hits it. Did i say amazing pop yet...

Cons: Lots of flex in the handle. after 3 games 6hrs and several line drives in 60-70 degree that bat cracked. My league is still using the 44 cor balls while these bats are made for the new asa balls so i only took 1 star off. Also demarini only provides one replacement for each bat per year so it was a little sad when it was broken after 3 days.

J3 ASA vs. Usssa 20 year vet player

Pros: Fact,,, I have swung alot worse, but the Usssa version does not stack up. Now, if your looking for an ASA bat the J3 is one of the best on the market in 2013

Cons: I did not swing the Usssa bat more than two sessions of BP so maybe it needed to break in but at this price I was not impressed. The ASA bat I used all season with no cracks or webbing.

Pros: Hot bat right out of the wrapper. By far the best ASA softball bat out there I think. Everyone on my teams wants to hit it or go buy it. Cant wait to start the season to see how it fully works when it is 100% broken in.

Cons: Have not found any yet.

Questions and Answers (14)

Have a question about the DeMarini J3 1.20 Slow Pitch Softball Bat: DXNTU? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Is it an End Loaded swing weight or balanced? I have the new Stadium and it feels slightly End Loaded.
The 2013 DeMarini J3 1.20: DXNTU Slow Pitch bat will be slighlty End Loaded. It will feel a little more End Loaded than the 2013 DeMarini Stadium: DXSTU.
This question may contridict the answer from the previous question. In this bat's description it specifically states that it features an end load. Can you please elaborate?
It looks like the representative who answered the previous question provided the wrong information regarding the DeMarini J3. It does have a more endloaded feel for stronger hitters with good swing speed. I will get the previous response updated to reflect the correct information.
You state this bat is slightly and loaded and that it will be a little more enloaded than the 2013 DeMarini Stadium. Can you specify slightly endload?
The 2013 DeMarini J3 1.20: DXNTU Slow Pitch has a 0.5 ounce end load.
Is the previous model, the DeMarini J2, an end loaded bat?
The DeMarini J2 was a balanced bat.
Does this have the new 2013 USSSA stamp?
Yes, the 2013 DeMarini J3 1.20: DXNTU Slow Pitch bat will have the new USSSA 1.20 BPF stamp on the barrel.
Any idea how this bat compares to the Original Demarini Stadium? Everything I read says its virtually the same construction, same end cap and all. I can't get behind the New Stadium S-One with the feel and small sweet spot. Thanks for any info in advance!
The DeMarini Stadium: DXSTU was a two-piece bat with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The 2013 DeMarini J3 1.20: DXNTU is a two-piece bat that is full composite. The 2013 DeMarini J3 1.20: DXNTU will offer just a little more flex than the DeMarini Stadium: DXSTU. Both feature 12" barrels and both are slightly endloaded.
Is the J3 available with 3 oz. end load?
The 2013 DeMarini J3 1.20: DXNTU Slow Pitch is not available with a 3 oz. end load.
Is the DeMarini J3 ASA certified?
The 2013 DeMarini J3 1.20: DXNTU Slow Pitch is not ASA certified.
I play in an ASA league and a USSSA league. I'm 5'7" 150 lbs. and hit about 280-300 on the sweet spot with my old 26 oz. DeMarini F3. I'm looking at this bat and the Worth Legit. Which would be best? Also, I've always felt like I hit double wall bats better than composite. Any idea why that is? Thanks.
The 2013 DeMarini J3 1.20: DXNTU Slow Pitch bat is a very popular USSSA model from DeMarini. The two-piece composite design is awesome! I am not sure why you have better success with the double wall. I would definitely keep swinging what is giving you the best results though.
Is the Demarini J3 1.20 is balanced like the Demarini J3 ASA? I have a J3 ASA and I very like it but I want to buy a J3 1.20.
The 2013 DeMarini J3 1.20: DXNTU Slow Pitch bat features a slightly end loaded swing weight.
I am looking for a bat for .44 COR balls. Will this bat fit the bill?
The 2013 DeMarini J3 1.20: DXNTU Slow Pitch features the newest ASA performance certification and is designed to hit the lower compression, higher COR softballs. You can hit the .44 COR softballs very well with this bat, but you will also compromise the durability. The .44 COR softballs are harder than the softballs this bat is designed to hit. If your league is still using the .44 COR softballs, you'll see the best durability when using a bat that features the 2004 ASA performance certification mark.
when will the 2014 version of this bat be availible for purchase?
DeMarini will release the 2014 J3 right around February 15th.
does demarini offer a 1.0 oz end-loaded slow pitch bat?
The DeMarini j3 1.20 "DXNTU" is only going to be a .5 oz end loaded swing weight. All of our DeMarini's will have a .5 oz end loaded swing weight.
I understand that this is a USSSA bat. However, can this bat hit .44 core softballs? Or do you suggest this bat be used to hit .40 core softballs?
The DeMarini J3 1.20 (DXNTU) should be used to hit USSSA softballs which are either Classic M or Classic M Plus designs. These balls feature a .40 core 325 compression or .52 core 275 compression. The .44 core 375 compression balls previously used in ASA play would cause problems to the durability of the bat because they are harder than what the bat is intended to hit.

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.
