We do not recommend the DeMarini CF5 LE ( DXCFX-LE) for his height and weight. We suggest a slightly heavier bat such as the DeMarini CF5 (DXCFR) or the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD (DXVD5). We recommend a 32" bat.
Would you recommend this bat for a 9 year old who is 4'4" and weighs just a tad over 60 lbs.? My sons coach mentioned he had a fast swing and that we should try getting him a heavier bat. He currently uses a 28" 16 oz.
Based on his height and weight we recommend a 28" 18 oz. DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE).

The DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) is not approved for Babe Ruth League. All composite barrel bats must be BBCOR certified.

What is the differance between this and the Easton S1?
The DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) and the Easton S1 (SL14S110) will be very similar. Both models will be a two-piece full composite design with a balanced swing weight. They will also both feature a 2 5/8" barrel. It will come down personal preference between DeMarini and Easton to decide on these two models.
My son is 5'1" and is 95 lbs. Should I get the 30" 20 oz or the 31" 21oz bat?
It is tough to say based only on height and weight, but I would recommend a 31" 21 oz. in the DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE).
Is this bat double walled? No double walled allowed in my son's league. He has his heart set on a DeMarini. Having a hard time finding info on DeMarini bats if they are double walled.
DeMarini's web site does not list this DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) Senior League bat as having a Double Wall construction, and this is not featured anywhere on the bat. If your league is going to outlaw that kind of design, I would ask for a "Disapproved Bat List" which they may have. Composite bats are made by creating layers of composite material, but they're not all Double Wall designs. This CF5 should be fine, but I would specifically ask the league director what bats are and are not approved for the league.
Is the DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE 31" 21oz. 2 5/8" barrel Senior League bat legal in Pony baseball?
The DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) is legal in Pony League.
My son is 9 years old. He is 4'7" and weighs 63 lbs. I was thinking of getting the 29 inch. Is that the right length.
Yes, I would recommend a 29" DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) for your son based on height and weight.
Despite the difference in barrel diameter, the barrel on the youth model seems to be a lot longer. Because of this, will the youth model have a larger sweetspot?
Since the DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) is a big barrel, the hitting surface, or sweet spot, will be much larger on it when compared to the 2 1/4" barrel on the CF5 Youth bat.
My son is 10 years old. Hi weighs about 80 pounds and is 4 feet 10 inches tall. Is a 30 inch 20 ounce bat about right for him? He has a 29 inch 19 ounce right now but it is a low quality bat. I am thinking of buying the CF5.
Based on your son's height and weight, the 30 inch 20 ounce size of the DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) would be a great option for your player.
My son is 8, 4'5 68lb and has been swinging a 28 s2, but his swing is extremely fast and was getting ahead of the ball. I had a 31" S3 -10 laying around and told him to try it out and he is hitting line drives. My question is do I need to get a 29 or 30 drop 10 or get a 29 drop 8?
I would recommend going with the 29" 21 oz. model of the DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFR-LE). A 30" bat would most likely be too long.
Is it USSSA legal?
The DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) is legal in USSSA for ages 14 and under.
Is this bat legal for 13-15 year old Babe Ruth baseball?
Unfortunately, the DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) Senior League would not be deemed eligible for that level of play. Because it has a composite barrel, the CF5 LE would need to be BBCOR certified for use in that age division. The model number for that bat would be (DXCFC-LE).
I'm considering this bat and the Combat B4 Portent XL for my 8 year old (4'4" 55 lbs). What are the key differences besides barrel size? Would one generally be expected to perform better than the other? Also, what size would you recommend?
The DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) is a two-piece composite bat, better for a contact hitter. The COMBAT B4 Portent XL (B4SL210) is a one-piece composite bat and it typically used by a power hitter. Based on his height and weight we recommend a 28" bat.
I was wondering if this bat compares to new COMbat Portent Senior League -12 bat (PORSL112).
The DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) and the COMbat Portent (PORSL112) Senior League bats will both be high performing composite barrel bats. The main difference between the two will be the construction. The CF5 is a two-piece design that will offer more flex and create a "whipping" motion through the zone that helps to generate bats head speed. The Portent is a one-piece design that will feel stiffer. Some power hitters prefer a stiffer flex in their bat. Both will be comparable in durability and pop.
My son will be 11 soon, weighs 125lbs, "Big Papi" is nickname, fast hands and a power hitter. He has used other bats but wants a Demarini. What would you recommend?
I would recommend the DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) Senior League for your son. The two-Piece full composite should be a good fit for him.
My son is 9, and weighs about 90 lbs and hits for power and we were looking at this bat. He had the white Marruci and cracked it last season and Marruci sent us the Black 2. Looking for drop 10 as Marruci is a drop 8.
The DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) is a great option for a -10 bat. It is very high performing and very durable.
My son is 9, 4'7" and weighs about 80 lbs. He has used the XL2, Vendetta, and an all alloy big barrel. We are ready to invest in a full composite big barrel for his travel team. He is a power hitter with pretty good bat speed. What bat would you recommend and what size to take him to that next level?
The DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE Senior League) would be an exceptional choice to get him to the next level. The two-piece composite design will have a very high performance. Also, the swing weight will feel very light and balanced compared to his previous Easton XL2. The 29" 19 oz. size would be recommended for his age and size.
Does this bat have a lot of flex when compared to one-piece bats or is it fairly stiff? I feel the stiffer bats are better for power. Thanks.
The DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) has more flex compared to a one-piece bat. One-piece bats are typically used by a power hitter. The two-piece design of the CF5 LE is best suited for a contact hitter.
Would the CF5 be a good bat for power hitters? If not which bat would you recommend? My son is 5' and 87 pounds.
The DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League is going to be a two piece composite and be balanced. With this balanced swing weight, the weight will be evenly distributed throughout the barrel. This will provide a smooth swing, and allow the hitter to generate some good momentum and power. I think this would be a good choice.
I currently swing the CF5 -10. I love this bat but my dad refuses to let me use it in tempertures below 65. I'm looking for a good back up for slightly cooler weather that has a similar swing.
Composite bats such as the DeMarini CF5 LE (DXCFX-LE) can be used in temperatures above 55 degrees. However, if you are searching for an alloy barrel bat the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXR) is a great option. It is a very balanced, two-piece bat.
What do low temperatures do to the bat? Is there a cool range that this composite bat should be left in the bag?
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League bat is recommended for temperatures over 60 degrees. The manufacturers recommend this because in under 60 degrees the ball can become more dense and heavy. The ball is actually what can damage the bat.
Is this bat usssa approved for 12u and 13u payers in 2014?
Yes, the 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League is approved for 12U and 13U USSSA leagues in 2014.
Do you have this in a 29/16?
No, the 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League is only available in a -10, which would be a 29/19.
Does this bat need to be broken in? If so, how many hits?
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League bat will require a period of break-in. 250-300 hits from a batting tee or soft toss should suffice. Just remember to turn the bat . 25" after each hit so the entire barrel can be broken in.
My son is a contact hitter at 4â€™6â€ and 61 lbs. He just started using a 30â€ -10 DeMarini CF5 from JustBats. He needs a durable practice/cage bat. Which would you recommend between the Easton SL13RX9, Easton BX83 or DeMarini Distance DXDSR?
The 2013 Easton Reflex: SL13RX9 Senior League is the most similar to the 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League, as it's well-balanced and the lightest option of the three. We get great feedback on the durability and performance of it, making it a great training model.
Which has the lightest swing weight, the 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE, the Easton S1, or the new Easton Mako? I am looking at 30" 20 oz. bats in each.
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League, 2014 Easton S1: SL14S110 Senior League and 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MKB Senior League are all well-balanced, two-piece composite models that are very high performing. The Easton MAKO was updated with Easton's new TCT Thermo Composite, which allows for a very light swing weight and larger sweet spot.
My son is 4'6" and 95 lbs. Despite his height he is a very strong 11 year old. Does not hit for a lot of power but is 500 + hitter and hits to all fields. Would you recommend the CF5 30/20 or the Easton Mako Senior League 30/20?
Both the 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League bat and the CF5 are two-piece fully composite designs with balanced swing weights. They are both great options for an all around hitter.
Hello. My son is 10 and is skinny and not too tall. He has a Voodoo and a CF-5. Both regular sized barrels. He needs a big barrel for a travel team he is joining. The CF5 and Voodoo both seem to be "top loaded" and he doesn't get much bat speed. What bat would you recommend for him to get more bat speed? Thanks.
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League will feel the same as the DeMarini CF5. For a more balanced bat, we recommend the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXR Senior League.
Is this bat the same thing as the white cf5 just a limited edition look?
Correct, the 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League bat will have the same design as the regular 2013 DeMarini CF5.
My son in a 9U travel player, great contact hitter and is strong. His current bat isn't popping. What's the best bat I can get for his age 9U and 10U that has the best pop?
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League would be a great option for him. The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE uses top of the line composite materials for outstanding performance and durability.
My son just turned 12 and is playing select. He is 5' 75 lbs, tall and skinny. He has a DeMarini Voodoo. He has always been contact hitter and lately hit a couple balls almost to the fence. The problem with the Voodoo is it is heavy and when he faced a pitcher throwing faster he only hits fouls balls. Is this CF5 is a better option?
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League would be a great option. The two-piece design is suited for a contact hitter and it is balanced.
My son is 13 years old, 5'0" and 85 lbs. Would this be a good bat for him to use for his travel team?
Yes, the 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE would be a great bat for your son.
My son (13) is about 5'8" and 110lbs. He has never been a power hitter. He has outgrown his 30/20 Vendetta - which he really liked. I am looking at the Voodoo, CF5, or the Easton S1. What do you suggest?
I would recommend the 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE and the 2013 Easton S1.
How does the CF5 rate against the Marucci Elite -10 in both swing feel and pop?
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE and the Marucci Elite are both top of the line bats. They will both be identical in performance and have very similar balanced feels.
I understand that you should not use this bat for batting cage practice. What do you recommend using in order to be best prepared to use this bat at other times?
I would recommend using a model that is very similar in length and weight and also in swing weight. If anything I would use a heavier model to help develop quicker hands through the zone, possibly a wood bat.
Would you recommend this bat for contact hitters?
Yes, this would be a good option for contact hitters.
Can this bat be used in advanced baseball?
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League bat is a two-piece fully composite design. It is definitely a top of the line bat from DeMarini. Advanced players love the balanced swing feel and performance.
My 13 Year old will be playing in the intermediate Little League division next year. He currently plays on a select team, which this bat is not an issue. Will this bat be in compliance with Little League 50/70 rules?
You cannot use the 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League in Intermediate 50/70. The rules state if the barrel is composite it must be BBCOR.
Can I use this in Little League Juniors?
No, the 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League bat is not legal for Little League Junior Division. You would need to use the BBCOR version http://www.justbats.com/product/2013-demarini-cf5-le-bbcor--dxcfc-le-adult/17530/
12 year old, 5'4" and 135 lbs., with quick hands currently using 31" drop 10. Time for a new bat, looking at DeMarini CF5 LE. Should we move up to a 32" drop 10 or stay at a 31" bat?
Based on his height and weight we recommend a 31" model, but you can move up as well to get more use out of the bat. Here is a link to our Bat Coach tool which helps with sizing http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/
Is it BBCOR?
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League is not BBCOR certified, as all BBCORs have to be a -3, and this bat is a -10. The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE BBCOR: DXCFC-LE Adult is BBCOR certified.
Hi, my son just turned 11. He was using the Nike 29" 21 oz. and it was awesome, 8 stand up triples, a gap hitter, lost its pop. He is 5'5 112 pounds. I'm looking at the DeMarini CF5 31" 21 oz. Is this a good bat? What is your opinion on rolling and shaving?
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League is a great choice for a gap hitter. Rolling or shaving a bat is illegal and will void the warranty. Composite bats should be broken-in properly by taking 100-200 swings off a tee or soft toss. Rotate the barrel about 1/4" every swings. Start at 50% power until you reach 100 swings. Make sure to avoid using a composite bat in batting cages that use yellow dimpled balls.
My son plays both 'in-house' Little League and Tournament Travel ball. He is swinging a Combat Reloaded 30/18 for Little League and hitting very well. I want to get a big barrel for travel and am considering the Demarini CF5, Marucci Elite and Easton S1 (all -10's). Looking for best combo of swing speed and sweet spot. Also, do you recommend 29/19 considering he will be facing faster pitching in travel? He is 10 yrs old, 4'6" and 72 lbs.
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League would be an great option for your son. It is very balanced and has a great sweet spot. Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 29" 19 oz. bat.
Can you use it for Babe Ruth?
Because of its drop -10 ratio and its composite barrel, the 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League bat would not be usable in Babe Ruth Leagues.
My son is a travel player but on the smaller side (4'9", 85 lbs). He is currently using a Louisville big barrel (Z1000) 29/17 which has zero pop. I am thinking of either the CF5 LE 30/20 as I heard it feels like an 18 oz or the Easton S1 30/18 which I know is a 2 1/4 barrel but he is a contact hitter not a power hitter but I think can handle a slightly heavier bat. Thoughts/recommendations? Thanks.
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE will have a lighter than average swing weight, but I don't think it will feel quite as light as an 18 oz. bat. However, if he has good swing speed with is current 29" 17 oz. bat, then he shouldn't have a problem with the new CF5 LE. If he can use on in his league (which he can), I would recommend a big barrel bat over a small barrel bat as it will offer more surface area for contact.
Is there any special features between this and the regular DXCFX Senior League? Or just the design?
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League has the same specifications as the 2013 DeMarini CF5: DXCFX Senior League, but with different graphics. The 2014 CF6 Series will be released in the fall.
Will it hit the ball 100 mph if you hit the ball on the 2013 DeMarini CF5 mark?
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE should be fine where ever you hit it at. There is a 12 month manufacture warranty is something happens to it.
When will the CF6 be released?
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League was just recently released. The 2014 CF6s are scheduled to be released in the fall of 2013, as of right now.
Do you recommend the 2013 CF5 or the 2013 CF5 LE?
The 2013 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League features the same two-piece design and TR3 F.L.O. Composite as the 2013 CF5. The difference between the two will be the Limited Edition color scheme in the CF5 LE.
The 2013 Pony rule 8C3 states: "...the barrel shall be a smooth implement, from the top of the cap to the top of the knob." Is this bat allowed?
Even though the 2014 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE is a two-piece bat, I can say for a fact that it is still accepted for play in Pony. This portion of the rule really refers to dents, cracks or misshaped bats.
Is there a difference between the 2013 and 2014 models? Except for the color.
The 2014 DeMarini CF5 LE: DXCFX-LE Senior League bat still features the same TR3 F.L.O. Composite material and Geo End Cap as the 2013. The 2014 CF5 is the current model and features the Limited Edition color scheme.
