My daughter is 15 about 125 lbs. I am trying to figure out which bat would be better for her. What is the difference between the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane vs the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch softball bat?

The difference between the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) and the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFF) will be the swing weight. The CF7 Insane will have an end-loaded feel while the regular CF7 will balanced. Also, the CF7 Insane will only be offered in the -10 drop weight while the regular CF7 will be offered in -9,-10, and -11 drop weights.

My daughter has a strong bat. She is now 12. She has used a CF5 31 inch 20 ounce -11 design. I want to surprise her with a new bat and I am looking for help. I Like the new CF7, but I am not sure what size to get.

The new 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) is a nice design but your daughter may benefit from the more balanced version of the bat as this "Insane" model is barrel heavy. That model would be the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFP) and if the 31 inch length is good for her in terms of plate coverage, you could stick with that and use a 31 inch 21 ounce model.

How does this bat differ from the CF6 Insane, besides being more end loaded?

The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) and the CF6 Insane are the same bat. The only difference is increase in end load on the CF7 Insane.

Can you explain or provide a link that explains the theory that an end loaded bat is a better option for a power hitter?

The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) features an end loaded swing weight, which is generally preferred by power hitters. By definition, power is the amount of work (swinging the bat) done in a given time. The faster a bat is swung means the more power put on the bat. If you can increase the mass behind the bat (in addition to keeping fast bat speed), it means there is even greater power behind the bat overall. With more of the weight being concentrated in the head of the bat, you can increase the mass in the bat. Characteristics of a power hitter means that they are on the stronger side and have great bat speed. These two characteristics together are why power hitters often prefer an end loaded design over a balanced model.

I have never used a DeMarini and I am a 12u player going to 14u. I was wondering if this would be a good bat for hitting and bunting. If not, what CF7 bat would you recommend?

The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFI) is going to be direct more towards a power hitter because of its end loaded feel. If you are more of a power hitter then I would recommend any of the other CF7's because they will have that balanced feel which is preferred for a contact/slap hitter.

Would this be good bat going from the 2013 DeMarini CF5 Hope?

The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) would be a more barrel heavy or end-loaded design than the 2013 DeMarini CF5 Hope (DXCFH). If the player has gotten stronger and has better swing speed then that could be a good option but it would be an adjustment as far as the feel goes.

What is the performance difference between the 2015 CF7 Insane compared to the 2014 CF6 Insane? The description states that the 2015 CF7 Insane has more end load compared to the 2014 CF6 Insane ... what does this actually mean?

The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) has more weight located in the barrel than the CF6 Insane. This creates more of a sledgehammer effect and packs more punch into the ball. If the player can handle that heavier feel it can definitely generate into more pop.

What is the difference between the 2015 Insane and Hope models? It says the 2015 Insane is slightly more end-loaded. What does that mean?

And end-loaded bat means that the weight is not perfectly distributed throughout, and has some of the weight pushed towards the barrel. This is generally preferred by power hitters as it allows a little more mass going through the hitting zone, but can slow down the bat speed of smaller, contact style hitters.

Does this bat require a break-in period?

The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) Fastpitch, like all composite bats, perform at their best when they are broken in.

I am not sure if I should get the 32"/22oz or the 33"/23oz. I am currently using the DeMarini CF5, 32"/22oz, and love it. I would like to buy an end loaded bat. Help!

If you are transitioning from a balanced bat to an end-loaded model, I would recommend staying with a similar length/weight as you had before. This is due to the fact that an end-loaded bat will feel slightly heavier than a balanced bat of the same weight, due to the weight distribution, especially for someone who is just starting out swinging with an end-loaded model. Therefore, I would recommend the 32"/22oz.

What would be an easier bat to hit with, an end loaded bat or a balanced bat?

An end loaded bat such as the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) will be harder to swing than a balanced bat.

Is the CF7 more end loaded than the CF6?

The 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) Fastpitch will be slightly more end-loaded than the CF6 to create more of a "sledge hammer" effect.

My daughter uses the CF6 Insane and loves it. With the CF7 being more end loaded, she is a bit concerned about the feel of it. Will DeMarini offer the 30 day buy back with the CF7, as it did with the CF6?

It does not look like Demarini is renewing their 30 day trial period on the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI). However, we have free shipping both ways, so you can get the bat, take some dry swings, and send it back to us if the weight distribution doesn't work for her.

Does the CF7 have the same 30 day warranty(if you use it and don't like it you can return it) through Demarini as the CF6?

It does not look like Demarini is renewing their 30 day trial period on the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI).

My daughter has the CF4 Insane. I believe this will is her third year of use. It seems to be performing well. It is a 33/23. How would the CF7 Insane 33/23 compare?

This 2015 DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) Fastpitch bat will provide a slightly more end loaded swing weight, larger sweet spot, and eliminates vibration better with the D-Fusion handle than a CF4 Insane bat.

Which bat would have a better hitting response the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT or this bat? Also, which bat has a larger sweet spot?

Both bats are very quality bats and have performed very well when comparing performance. The DeMarini CF7 Insane (DXCFI) has a D-Fusion handle technology to help eliminate vibration and redirect the energy back into the barrel creating a more opitmal sweet spot. The Louisville Slugger LXT (FPLX14-R9) has the Composite S1iD technology which allows for a flexible, more forgiving barrel, a larger sweet spot, and a cleaner sounding pop with every hit.
