DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Baseball Bat: DX243 Adult review by Buck
Pros: I did not know how far wood bat technology had advanced until I got the DX243. This thing is a trophy! It also hammers the baseball. Thanks for a superior product. Cons:My only regret about this bat is that I did not have it during 1957 when I started 10th grade. That is not the bat's fault.

Overall, would a composite bat have more pop than a traditional all wood baseball bat?

The DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Baseball Bat (DX243) Adult could be considered a hybrid model, since it features a Pro Grade Maple barrel and a composite wood handle. When comparing this model to a composite barreled bat, the composite bat would have more pop than the wood bat would. BBCOR stands for "Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution." This standard regulates how much energy is lost during the bat's contact with the baseball. The higher the number a bat registers in the test, the more trampoline effect it has. The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) decided that 0.50 would be the maximum value a BBCOR bat could achieve; which is only slightly higher than that of a wood bat. Because of the slightly higher BPF rating, a composite bat will have more pop than a wood bat will.

What's the barrel diameter?

Would you say that the 243 is better than the new PAPI34 model from Marucci?

Comparing the Marucci David Ortiz Maple Wood Baseball Bat (PAPI34) and the DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Baseball Bat (DX243) is difficult because they are very different. The David Ortiz is a more traditional maple bat while the DX243 is a maple composite bat. The DX243 may have a bit more durability but the PAPI34 would be more widely accepted in wood bat leagues or tournaments.

Product Description

DeMarini wood bats have developed a reputation as some of the highest quality maple wood bats on the field. With a barrel made from pro grade maple wood, the D243 has the strength and durability one might expect from a DeMarini bat... and then some. Known for its hardness, maple wood is usually pretty durable. However, DeMarini takes this durability a step further with the addition of a composite wood handle. This combination of materials creates one of the strongest wood bats you'll find anywhere and makes the D243 nearly unbreakable. The handle is also coated with a synthetic finish that drastically improves the grip and feel of the D243. This maple/composite design provides players with an ever so slight amount of flex that is not typically found in a maple-only wood bat. This design also produces a slightly end-loaded feel and a larger sweet spot for more trampoline and more power than your conventional wood bats. If you're tired of suffering through broken wood bats that just don't get the job done, step up to the plate and try a DeMarini Pro Maple Composite wood bat today! DeMarini: Insane Dedication to Performance! The D243 is BBCOR Certified and legal for high school and collegiate play. It is backed by a Full Three (3) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!

About DeMarini

DeMarini 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.... read more
