Questions and Answers for 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League
My son is 13 but is only 4'8" and 75 lbs. He currently has a -10 Easton S1 but has been swinging an Easton S3 BBCOR for middle school. I was thinking about moving him to a -8 big barrel for his travel team to give him more strength than -10. How would you compare this CF6 to the Combat Wanted and the Easton XL1? Which would you recommend for him?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) Senior League and the COMBAT Wanted are both balanced bats with a two-piece composite design. The XL1 is a two-piece composite design with an end loaded swing weight. The XL1 is great for power hitters and the CF6 and Wanted are terrific bats for contact hitters.

The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) and the 2014 Easton MAKO are both two-piece composite bats, designed for a contact hitter. They are both balanced and very high performing. The MAKO has a slightly extended barrel. The CF6 offers a D-Fusion handle to help reduce vibration, but this also causes it to feel stiffer.

Babe Ruth has more strict regulations all bats with 2 5/8" barrel diameters made from composite materials. If a Big Barrel bat has a composite barrel, it is required to be BBCOR certified. Only -3 bats are BBCOR certified, so this -8 CF6 model would not be allowed.

My son is 5'2" about 95 lbs and playing 13U Travel Elite Baseball. He used a 30" -10 Rawlings VELO, he has very fast hands, would this bat be too light?
If he has very quick hands the 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League will be a little too light for him. We recommend the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo: DXVDR Senior League. It has an end loaded feel, designed for a player with quick hands.
My son is 10 yrs old 54" tall and 65 lbs and has really fast hands. Looking for a bat with some pop, and also a properly sized bat. Was using a 28" 17 oz. and it just looks way to small for him.

I have a son who will be playing travel ball. he is 59 inches and 105 lbs. he is a strong power hitter. what lenght bat should i ge? and at what age or size should i be looking at -8 bat
Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 30" model. The suggested bat weight depends on the preference for the player. There is no required weight until you get to high school when you are need to have a -3.
As far as pop which is better, the Voodoo or CF6? Would the 29" 21 oz. CF6 and 29" 20 oz. Voodoo feel the same? Would the CF6 feel lighter? Lastly, does this bat require any break-in period?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League and 2014 DeMarini Voodoo are very comparable in terms of performance, as they'll both push the 1.15 BPF limits. The CF6 is well balanced, and better suited for a contact hitter than the end loaded Voodoo, which is a good choice for a power hitter. The Voodoo will feel heavier than advertised, due to the end loaded weight distribution. The CF6 will require a break-in period of 150-200 swings due to the two-piece composite design. The Voodoo will not require a break-in, as it has an alloy barrel and composite handle.
Is it composite?
Yes, the 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League is a two-piece fully composite bat.
How will the CF6 perform relative to the CF5?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League bat will out perform the previous year model CF5 due to the new Paradox Composite. This composite will allow for a larger sweet spot. Also, the CF6 will feature DeMarini's new D-Fusion handle technology. This new technology will help eliminate vibration upon contact.
Is the weight distribution the same as the Easton XL series? Will this bat have the "end loaded" feel?
No. The DeMarini CF6 will have a balanced fee like the Easton S Series.
What is the advantage of a -8 versus a -10 DeMarini CF6?
If you have the strength to generate good bat speed the -8 will allow you to hit for more power as opposed to the -10 model. Going to a -8 would also allow you to make an easier jump to a BBCOR model which will be required by the time a player gets to high school.
Is the sweet spot on the -10 the same size as the -8?
Yes, the 2014 DeMarini CF6 -8 and -10 will have approximately the same sized sweet spot.
