Questions and Answers for 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat: DXCFH
My daughter is 11 years old playing on a select softball team. She's 75 pounds. We're looking for a good 30 or 31" composite bat. What is your recommendation? What are your thoughts on the 1/2 and 1/2 bats?
This 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) would be a great choice. Similar models that I would recommend include the Easton MAKO, Louisville Slugger XENO, and Miken Freak Black. I would say that for most 11 year old players, the 31" length would not be too much to handle. We typically call half and half bats "hybrid" models, but that design isn't very common in the fastpitch market. Typical hybrid designs have alloy barrels and composite handles. However, DeMarini does brand any of their two-piece designs as "Half & Half". The two-piece design of this CF7 definitely helps eliminate vibration which also helps transfer that energy directly into the ball on contact for optimum performance.
Do they make a drop 11 Hope bat?
Unfortunately, the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) will not be offered in a drop 11 length to weight ratio.
My granddaughter is 15 years old. She is now using a 32 inch 22 ounce bat. She is 5 foot 4 inches tall, and weighs 140 pounds. She wants to try the 33/23 bat. Would this work for her?

The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Hope Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFH) is the breast cancer awareness model of the 2015 DeMarini CF7 DXCFP. A portion of the proceeds from the DXCFH are donated to breast cancer awareness. The two bats should otherwise be identical in regards to performance.
