What is the difference between composite and half and half? I am looking for a bat for my son (8) that has little or no sting. His bat now has a 29 inch, 17.5 ounce, 2 1/4 barrel. I would like to stay around $110.00 to $130.00. Thanks.

A half and half bat has a composite handle and an alloy barrel. The DeMarini CF5 (DXCFR) is a two-piece composite bat. The composite material in the handle will help reduce vibration. The DeMarini CF5 (DXCFR) is a great option.

Does this generation of composite bats need to be "broken in" and if so what is proper way to do this?

The DeMarini CF5 (DXCFR) White Senior League model is a bat that would show increased performance after a short breaking in period. Breaking the bat in creates a better "trampoline effect" in the barrel and maximizes the performance of the bat. The way we recommend to do this is by taking between 150-200 swings either with soft toss or tee work. While taking these hits, the bat head should be rotated a quarter turn on each hit. This method insures that the composite fibers break in evenly around the entire barrel of the bat.

What does BPF 1.15 mean?

BPF1.15 is a lab test for regulating small-barrel and big-barrel baseball bats. BPF1.15 places an upper limit on a bat's springiness ("trampoline effect") as compared to that of a rigid wall, which equals BPF 1.00. Wood bats are virtually inelastic, with values of slightly more than 1.00. Small barrel and big barrel youth bats are not supposed to exceed 1.15.

I have the 2012 love it. But how can this get any better?

By constructing the CF5 using their new TR3 F.L.O. Composite, DeMarini has successfully created their lightest swinging bat yet. TR3 F.L.O. (which stands for Fused Layer Optimized) is a cutting edge material that is the result of the random and naturally chaotic fusing of carbon fibers. This creates a more compact carbon that enables DeMarini to make the new CF5 lighter and stronger than ever before. The stronger design allows for more even weight distribution, which in turn produces faster bat speeds!

I'm 11, would the 31" 23oz. be good for me?

The 2013 DeMarini CF5: DXCRF Senior League bat would be a great choice. Using the Bat Coach Feature on justbats.com it recommends that an 11 year old use a 30" bat model. I also think if you are an experienced 11 year old hitter you could step it up and hit with a 31" CF5. You just need to be able to swing it comfortably and confidently through the hitting zone.

I am 12 years old and I am 5'5" and 102 pounds. I would like to use this bat for at least a year. Would you recommend a 31" 23 oz. or a 32" 24 oz?

Based on your height and weight and amount of time that you would like to use the bat, I would suggest a 32" 24 oz. 2013 DeMarini CF5. That size would allow you to grow into the bat.

Im 12 4 10 and weigh 80 pounds. Ive been using a 29-20 voodoo and am thinking about getting this bat. Would you suggest a 29-21 or a 30-22? thanks

The recommended size would be 30 inches. A lot depends on your current bat speed with your VooDoo. If you have good bat speed then you are probably ready to move up to a 30 inch bat.

How long does it take to warm it up?

The 2013 DeMarini CF5: DXCFR Senior League has a Two-Piece Fully Composite Design. You can break the bat in with 150 to 200 swings of soft toss or swings off the tee. Remember to rotate the bat 1/4 inch after every swing.

Which bat has a bigger barrel the, DeMarini CF5 or the Easton XL1?

The Easton XL1 will have a more extended barrel, whereas the DeMarini CF5 will be more balanced.

I am 5'6" x 126 lbs 13U (in 7th grade). Trying to decide between the 2012 DeMarini CF5 (-8) or if I should wait for the 2013 Easton XL Series (-8). Any advice on how the two products may differ? I hit for power and have good bat speed. Prefer a composite barrel. Have used one piece in the past, but like the feel of the balance swing the CF5 offered.

If you prefer a balanced bat, the 2013 DeMarini CF5 would be the better choice. The Easton XL1 will be slightly end loaded.

Is the CF5 legal for 13 to 15 yr old Babe Ruth?

No, for 13-15 year old Babe Ruth, if the barrel of the bat is composite like this CF5 then it must be BBCOR certified. Here is a link to the BBCOR certified model of the 2013 DeMarini CF5. http://www.justbats.com/product/2013-demarini-cf5-bbcor--dxcfc-adult/15465/

I'm am just wondering if this bat can be used in travel ball.

The 2013 DeMarini CF5: DXCFR features the newest USSSA stamp, and if you are allowed to use 2 5/8" barrel bats, then this would be legal.

I'm 12 and will be making the jump from Little League to USSSA. Will this bat be legal for next season in USSSA?

The 2013 DeMarini CF5 is legal in USSSA for the 14U age division and below in 2012 and 2013.

I'm 12 years old (a little over 5'6" at almost 130lbs). I've been using the 2011 CF4 32/21, with very hard line drives and HRs in about the 275' range. I'll be going into 7th Grade and was thinking about getting the 32/24 this year and then moving to a -5 for 8th grade and the BBCOR for 9th. Does this makes sense? Thanks!

It sounds like you have a great plan down for the progression you need to reach the BBCOR -3 bats. That's a good jump from the -11 to a -8, but it sounds like with your hitting you will have no problem making that transition.

Which would be better for my 13yr old 8th grader 5'5 and 130 lbs the 2013 cf5 -8 or 2013 voodoo -5?

That all depends on a number of factors. 1) The size bat he is currently using. You don't want to go up more than 3 or 4 ounces in weight from what he is using now. 2) The type of bat he is currently using. It's always recommend that a player stick with the same type or brand of bat they have used in the past with the most success. In doing so, the player is much, much more likely to continue to have success at the plate.

I'm 13 years old and I am 5'6 and 120 lbs. I hit for power and average, and I hit 2nd in the lineup .I'm going into eigth grade. would you suggest getting drop 8, 5, or 3. Thank you

If you're going in to the 8th grade, and given your size, I would recommend a -5 bat. This will help make for an easier transition to a -3 bat at the High School level.

How does this bat compare to the 2012 DeMarini Vexxum DXVXR Senior League bat in terms of balance? I've heard the DXVXR described as slightly end loaded, but I've found it is too much so for my son's taste. He's a 10 y/o, 4'8", 66 lb kid used to swinging a Louisville Catalyst 29/18. I'd be looking at this in a 29/19, but only if it is as balanced as the LS.

The 2013 DeMarini CF5 is a balanced bat. The 2012 Demarini Vexxum DXVXR is a end loaded bat. The 2013 CF5 will have a similar swing weight to the Louisville Slugger Catalyst.

I'm a 5'3 ft 100 lbs. contact hitter who has very quick hands. During 11u i used a -7.5 bat, due to slower pitching. In 12u I used a -9 bat. But this year i'm trying to figure out what bat I should get, the -9 Voodoo or the -8 CF5. What bat do you think I should get?

I would absolutely recommend a -8 model. It's always recommended to move up in weight as you get closer to the High School level. This will ultimately make for an easier transition when you have to use a -3 bat in High School.

In going to have my first year in the Junior Division this fall, and I will most likely be playing travel basebal. I'm interested in buying a new big barrel for myself. This CF5 -8 seems like a bat I want to use. The only thing is I'm not sure if I can use this in little league or travel ball. I'm not quit sure about the bat rules either. I've seen things that say if the bat is composite it has to be BBCOR -3. This bat says it's composite and allowed for use in 2012, but it's not BBCOR or -3. Please respond as soon as possible because I need to know this soon. Thank you very much.

The 2013 DeMarini CF5 is not legal in Junior Division of Little League. All composite barrel bats must be BBCOR certified. Bats that have an alloy barrel are allowed in any drop.

I'm 12, and next year in TSE we have to use -8 -5 -3 and I'm wondering which size I should get in this bat? I am 5'0 and 107 lbs.

Based on your height and weight we would recommend a 30" 22 oz 2013 DeMarini CF5.

Which is a better bat... The 2013 Demarini CF5 or the 2013 Demarini Voodoo?

The DeMarini CF5 and the DeMarini Voodoo are both top of the line bats. The CF5 is a two-piece fully composite bat and the Voodoo is a two-piece hybrid, with a composite handle and an aluminum barrel. Here is a link to compare the two bats. http://www.justbats.com/compare/

Would this composite bat be better for me than the half and half version? I'm a contact hitter that hits in the gaps every time?

Both the DeMarini CF5 and the DeMarini Vexxum are great options for a gap to gap hitter. Here is a link to further compare the differences between the two bats. http://www.justbats.com/compare/

im used to a 19-20oz bat 31 inch would this drop 8 be better than the drop 10?

I would recommend using the drop -10. Typically going up more than 1" or 1oz will require a longer adjustment period.

I am 13 years old and weigh 125 pounds standing 5 foot 8 inches tall and I am wondering whether to get a drop 3 or 8 as I have just finished 7th grade going into 8th. What would you recommend?

The -3 length to weight ratio will be what you have to use the following season in your freshman year of high school, but the -5 would be lighter to swing for your 8th grade year. Its up to you whether you want a bat you can use now and your freshman year or just for the upcoming season.

My son is 12 years old, 4"11 and weighs about 82 pounds. He currently uses a Demarnin Voodoo 30/17, but hit with a friends 30/20 cf5 and LOVED it...given the fact that he is a small kid, is the 20 ounces going to be too heavy for him? Thanks.

That is actually the hardest question for us to answer. It would be hard for us to say whether a 20 ounce bat will be too heavy without being able to see and analyze your son's swing. I recommend finding a 20 ounce bat locally and having him take some dry swings with it to get an idea of whether it's the right weight for him. It is normal to move up 1-3 ounces in weight with every new bat you get.

Tyler Expert ·May 23, 2012

What is the best way to break this bat in? I received it today and my son has a game on Thursday and this weekend? Thanks!

We recommend taking an average of 150 to 200 swings either off of a tee or soft toss starting at about 40% power and increasing the closer you get to the 200 hit mark. Also, make sure you rotate the barrel in between each hit and use the same balls you would normally use in a game.

Is this bat legal for little league juniors 2013?

This bat should be legal for Little League Juniors in 2013 as long as your sanctioned league is allowing the big barrel 2 5/8 diameter.

When this bat gets under the temperature what happens? Is it still usable?

We don't recommend using the 2013 DeMarini CF5 when temperatures drop below 55 degrees. At this point, baseballs become very dense and can crack the composite material of the CF5.

Derek H. Expert ·May 15, 2012

Will this bat get any cheaper?

The 2013 DeMarini CF5 will not go down in price anytime soon. The price is set by the manufacture and they will determine when the price can go down.

I heard it is top heavy, do you think this is true?

In my opinion, the 2013 CF5 is a balanced bat. However, I am a strong, grown man. Customers I talk to also say is a balanced bat as well.

How come the bullet description of this bat says it'd fully composite then it says in the bat comparison it says it's half and half

When they are referring to the half and half construction of this bat, they are referring to the two piece composite technology. So this is still a full composite design by Demarini. Here is the link to view more detail about the DXCFR. http://www.justbats.com/product/2012-demarini-cf5--dxcfr-senior-league/13539/

I am more of contact than power hitter but do i have a chance to get a homerun with this bat?

The DeMarini CF5 DXCFR has a very good amount of pop. It has a balanced feel and when it is broken in fully you will notice the ball jumping off of the bat.

Sean Expert ·Apr 29, 2012

How good of pop does this bat have?

The 2013 DeMarini CF5 DXCFR is going to have great pop. This bat is going to have some of the newest technology used in this bat. The composite barrel is going to have great pop and the way that this bat is made, it will have great durability.
