Questions and Answers for 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFP
I have a daughter who is 10 years old and 4'11 and weighs 105 pounds. She is a decent hitter with some power. What size bat would you recommend? What is the difference between the 2014 and 2015 cf series Demarini bats?
The main difference between the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFP), or any of the newer CF7 models is that they all feature the D-Fusion handle, which helps to dampen vibration and sting. The only CF6 model that featured the D-Fusion handle was the Insane (DXCFI). Based on her height and weight, we recommend a 31" bat.
My daughter is a 14U. She's 5'5" and 130 lbs. and is a power hitter. She did awesome last season with a 32" 22 oz. 2014 Insane. Would a 33" 22 oz. 2015 CF7 DXCFP be a good choice this season?
Sure, the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFP) would be awesome! It will swing more balanced than the Insane she was previously using. Also, the D-Fusion handle will help decrease hand sting and vibration. It makes for a very high performing, comfortable swing. The extra inch added for the 33" should not hurt her at all. I say go for it!
The writing on the bat states Half & Half. What does this mean?
Half & Half is a term that DeMarini uses to describe all of it's two-piece bats, whether they are two-piece fully composite models like this 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFP) or a two-piece hybrid design.
Do they make a drop 9 in this model?
Unfortunately, the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFP) is only available in the -10 size.
My daughter is 15 years old, 5'2" and weighs 140 lbs. She is a power hitter. What would you suggest for her?
As a power hitter, I would probably suggest the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat: (DXCFI). This model will feature a slight end-load and typically power hitters tend to prefer this type of weight distribution. This model will be very similar to the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat: (DXCFP). However, the weight distribution will be the biggest difference between the models.
My girl is going to play 8u and I'm looking at the CF7. I'm having trouble between which one to chose from because I don't know the difference in them. She is a contact hitter what is the correct bat for her?
Based on her age I would say you should go with the lightest version of the CF7 available which would be the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFS). The lighter swing weight would be beneficial for a younger contact hitter.
My daughter is 12 years old 5'8", 125 lbs, and is more of a power hitter. Do you think we should be looking at a 32" or 33" bat? She's currently using a 32".
Based on the player's approximate height and weight, I would probably suggest a 33" in the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat: (DXCFP).
So the difference between the CF7 Hope and the CF7 Insane is that the Insane is end-loaded? Is that correct? If not, what would the differences be?
Yes, the biggest difference is ultimately going to be the weight distribution. The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat: (DXCFP) and 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat: (DXCFH) are going to be balanced, and the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat: (DXCFI) is going to incorporate a slight end-load.
My daughter is 5'7" and weighs 135 lbs. She is 13 and likes DeMarini bats. Is this a good bat for her? Should I try to get her to try the Easton MAKO? Should she use the CF7 Insane or CF7 (dxcfp)? She is hitting for power.
Based on her height and weight, we suggest a 33" bat. The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFP) is a terrific bat for any hitter, especially if she likes DeMarini bats. It is typically best to stick with the manufacturer that the player is most comfortable with and has had past success with. However, if she is a power hitter, moving to the DeMarini CF7 Insane might be a better option. The end loaded swing weight on the Insane is typically best for power hitters.
My daughter is 13 years old and is a slapper/contact hitter, although has been hitting with more power lately. She is 5' 2" and weighs 105 lbs. We are looking at this bat, the 2015 CF7, and the Easton MAKO 2014. What are the differences between the two? Which would you recommend for her?
The CF7 and MAKO are very comparable designs. Both are balanced, fully composite, and two-piece. The biggest differences, aside from the manufacturer, would be that the CF7 eliminates vibration a bit better with the D-Fusion handle and the MAKO provides a slightly longer barrel. Both would be great options for a player who hits for both contact and power.
My daughter is 12 years old. She is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 100 pounds. What length bat does she need? Do you have a recommended weight? We are wanting to buy the CF7 but we are not sure what size or model?
Based on her height and weight, we would suggest a 32 inch bat. Given her age we would suggest either the -11 2015 DeMarini CF7 (DXCFS) or the -10 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope (DXCFH).
Can it be shaved?
We do not recommend shaving the 2015 DeMarini CF7 (DXCFP Fastpitch) or any bat for that matter because it does void the warranty and it does increase the chance of the bat breaking.
What is the difference between the CF7:DXFP and the CF7:DXCFS?
The major difference between the 2015 DeMarini CF7 (DXCFP) and the 2015 DeMarini CF7 (DXCFS) is the length to weight ratio or "drop weight." The DXCFP is a heavier -10 length to weight ratio and the DXCFS is a -11 which is lighter.
Your prior responses note that this is the same as the CF7 hope except for the colors. However, the end caps are difference and the barrel length (not full bat length) is longer on the hope. Are they really the same as a result?
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 (DXCFP) and the CF7 hope have the same barrel lengths. However, the different end cap on the DXCFP will make it appear longer. Other than that these bats will be identical. Demarini says the Hope packs the same punch, power and balance as the -10 model.
Is this DeMarini full composite or half and half?
The 2015 DeMarini CF7 (DXCFP) Fastpitch has a two-piece fully composite design.
How big a leap in technology is there from the -10 CF6 to CF7?
The major difference in the 2015 DeMarini CF7 (DXCFP) from the 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFP) would be the connection point between the barrel and the handle has been enhanced to help regulate flex better and to significantly reduce sting and vibration to the hands of the player. Each CF7 barrel was totally redesigned from the CF6 bats to be hotter out of the wrapper and sustain maximum POP throughout the lifetime of the bat. The new bats also have a larger sweet spot and are more forgiving across the barrel.
Do you have the 2015 CF7 in a drop 9? If not, is there a 2014 model available in this size?
Unfortunately, at this time we do not have any -9's available in the DeMarini CF7 (DXCFP) for the 2015 model or 2014 model.The lengths that we have available for sale at this time are a -8, -10 and a -11.

Is this bat good for a high school power hitter?
The balanced, two-piece design of the 2015 DeMarini CF7 (DXCFP) is best for a contact hitter. We recommend the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) is an end loaded bat, and best for a power hitter.
Will you compare this to the CF7 Hope? Are they the same bat?
