Questions and Answers for DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat: DXCFR
What does the temperature have to be to use this bat?
We don't recommend using your DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) in temperatures much colder than 55 degrees. The baseball becomes much denser at colder temperatures and the barrels on the bats are not designed to hit a harder baseball which can lead to denting and cracking.
My son has been swinging the Easton XL1 2 1/4" and he recently popped the end cap on it. Which bat would be better for him between the CF6 drop -8 and drop -10?
I would suggest going with a drop -8 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR). The XL1 he was using is an end loaded bat, so the drop -8 in a balanced swing weight like the CF6 will be a good fit for him.
My son is about to play in the Pony League. I wanted to make sure that this bat has the Pony League stamp.
The DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) will have the USSSA stamp on the barrel. There will be no Pony stamp. I would just check to see if your son is allowed to use a composite barrel in his Pony league. If so, this will be fine. If not, you may need to switch to an aluminum alloy barrel material.
My son is 5'4" & close to 100 lbs. He currently has a 31" 21 oz bat. Should I go with a 31" and 23 oz?
The 31" 23 oz. DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) would be an excellent option for your son at his size.
Pop is more of a term associated with the player's individual hitting ability rather than a quantifiable feature of the bat. However, the performance of the DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) is up to par with all other high end models in the Senior League category.
I am 13 years old and 6 feet tall. I am a power-hitter and I need a new bat for this season. Is this really the bat I need?
The DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) is a two-piece full composite design with a very well-balanced swing weight. Additionally, it features the DeMarini's Paradox Composite for top performance. I do like the D-Fusion handle as it does a great job of eliminating shock and vibration from hitting the ball.
Does this bat have a BBCOR label?
No, the DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) does not feature the BBCOR stamp on the barrel. Bats that are BBCOR certified will be a -3 drop. The DeMarini CF6 BBCOR model number is DXCFC.
My son is 9 years old and is 5 foot 2 tall and weighs 125 pounds. His bat speed is that of a 12 -13 year old. What bat is best suited for him, his bat or the new Easton S3?
Both the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) and the 2015 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15S310) are good options. The S3 would be lighter but would have less flex. Two-piece bats that flex like the CF6 can increase bat speed and it also will have better sting or vibration protection than a single-piece alloy like the S3. Both are good options it would just depend on what design features you are looking for.
What is the difference between the DXCFR and DXCFX bats?
The difference between the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFX) would be the length to weight ratio or "drop weight." The DXCFR has a -8 length to weight ratio and is heavier and the DXCFX has a -10 length to weight ratio.
What is the difference between the CF6 DXCFR and the Vexxum DXVXR besides the drop weight?
The major difference between the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) and the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVXR) besides the drop weight is the construction. The CF6 is a two-piece fully composite model and the Vexxum is a two-piece hybrid design than has a composite handle but an alloy barrel. The Vexxum will be more game ready right out of the wrapper and the CF6 will require a break-in period but the CF6 may last a bit longer at a peak performance level.
What is the lowest temperature this bat can be used?
We don't recommend using a composite bat like the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) in temperatures below 55 degrees.
Is the DeMarini CF6 Senior League Bat end-weighted?
No. The 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) is designed to be very well balanced for a light swing weight.
My son is 5' tall and about 85 lbs. He's going to start playing travel ball, 12u or 13u, and was wondering if the CF6 or Voodoo would be better for him? He's a contact hitter with occasional power. He used a MAKO 2 1/4" barrel last season with great success. His hands are really fast.
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) has balanced swing weight and is more comparble to the MAKO. If he had high success with the MAKO, the CF6 is going to be the better option. The Voodoo has more of an end loaded swing weight and is typically better for pure power hitters.
My son is a ridiculous pull hitter and puts most of his hits right down the 3rd base/left field line. He is 5'4" tall and weighs 110 lbs. I just bought him a 31" 22 oz. DeMarini Voodoo Overlord big barrel. I can't tell if this bat suits him because he has always swung a composite bat and the Overlord is not. Plus, I am not sure whether to rate him a contact hitter (balanced bat) or power hitter (end loaded).
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) is a high performance model from DeMarini. It would be a great choice for your son, if he is more of a contact hitter due to the balanced swing weight. If he is wanting to work on bat control as well as bat speed, the CF6 is a great choice. If he is on the stronger side and has great bat speed, the end loaded OVERLORD may be the better option. Without seeing him swing first hand, it is tough to classify what type of hitter your son is. The end load of the OVERLORD will slow down his swing due to the additional weight in the head of the bat, which may help him to not pull as much on his swings. I would recommend taking practice swings with a tennis ball or wiffle ball. This will put the bat in his hands, so he will get a better idea on the length and weight of the bat. If it is, indeed, too heavy, you can always send the unused bat back to us for a full refund or exchange.
which bat is more durable, this or the combat wanted -8?
It is tough to say how long any bat, including the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) or the COMBAT Wanted, will last. It will truly depend on how often the bat is used and if proper bat care is followed. Both bats are covered under a 12 month manufacturer warranty through their respective manufacturer's so if they were to become damaged with a year of the purchase date, you can send it back to the manufacturer for warranty replacement.
Which bat will be more balanced, this model, or the COMBAT Wanted (-8)?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat: (DXCFR) will be slightly more balanced.
Are there any big differences between the Senior league (-8) CF6 and the CF7?
The new 2015 DeMarini CF7 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) will be slightly more balanced than the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) and will feature a slightly stiffer feel.
I am 4'8 and 70 pounds. What size bat should I get?
We would recommend a 29" for a player with your height in weight in the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR).
My son is starting 11u baseball were you can use big barrel bats. League rules state that it needs to be a single wall bat. I cannot find any info on if the CF6 is a single or double wall bat.
Most composite barrel bats like the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) are not considered single wall designs due to the way the composite materials are layered in the construction. It would be best to ask if the league allows composite material bats before ordering to see if they have any rules associated.
Is this bat legal for 13-14 Babe Ruth league?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) would not be legal for the 13-14 Babe Ruth League because it has a composite barrel. If the bat has a composite barrel, it is required to be BBCOR Certified bat.
What day can you pre-order the CF7 -8?
The 2015 DeMarini baseball line will be released in early September. Once we receive the bats in from DeMarini we will have the Pre-Book option available.
What is the difference between the DXCFR and the DXCFX?

Will this bat have better pop then the CF5? The CF5 had a lot of pop and that's what I want. Will it be better?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6: (DXCFR) will have different material and technology inserted into the barrel to help improve its performance from the 2013 model. The Paradox Composite material used will help create a bigger, more responsive sweet spot. This bat is extremely hot, and will be very high performing. If you were a big fan of the CF5, you will definitely love the 2014 DeMarini CF6.
Is this bat different from the cf5 senior league -8 besides the paint job? Will it have the same performance as the cf5?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) will be different from the DeMarini CF5 (DXCFR) in that it has a new enhanced connection point that helps to better reduce sting and vibration to the hands of the player. The composite material used will also be different with the CF5 using the TR3 F.L.O. composite and the CF6 using an upgraded "paradox" composite. The balance and swing weight will be the same but other than that they will be different by design.
My son is in 8th grade. He has a good build and has a lot of strength. He weighs 140 lbs. and is 5'6". What size should he swing? He's in juniors for two more years and whats something he can use to play high school ball.
Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 32" 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR). This particular model is a senior league model, which means that it will not be legal for play in high school. A player must use a BBCOR certified bat in order for it to be legal for play. The BBCOR model of this bat would be the DXCFC, you can check it out here: http://www.justbats.com/product/2014-demarini-cf6-bbcor--dxcfc/19357/
I am more of a power hitter, I like the CF5 youth bat and I want a big barrel for my travel team. I like a balanced bat with a lot of pop.
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) would be a great choice for you. It is very well balanced and the Paradox composite material provides a ton of pop.
What bat has more pop; the Mako or the CF6 senior league model?
Both the 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) and the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) will be similar in terms of performance. The only noticeable difference would be that the Mako has a slightly longer barrel giving it a bit bigger sweet spot.
My son is 13 and is 5'0" and weighs 110lbs. He's an aggressive hitter and last year used a -10 Rip it 31/21. He's required to use between a -5 to -8.5 this year and he wants a CF6. Based on these parameters, what suggestions on bat and size would you have?
Based on his approximate height and weight, the suggested length we would recommend would be 31 inches. If he was using a -10 before, I think moving down to a -8 would be a great transition weight. There will be a slight weight difference, however, I don't think it will be too detrimental to his swing speed. The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) would actually be a really great choice to look at because it will be extremely balanced. The weight distribution will be very even, making it easy to create a fast bat swing. This model will also have some very powerful technology in it to help expand the sweet spot and eliminate vibrations. This model has also been one of our most popular, and has been highly reviewed.
Does the bat require any break-in procedures?
Yes, the 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) is a two-piece, fully composite design and will require a break-in period. We recommend 150-200 hits off a tee or soft toss. Itâ€™s best to start off at about 40% power, and gradually increase. Also, be sure to rotate the barrel a quarter inch after every hit to ensure an even break-in.
My son is 13 but is only 4'8" and 75 lbs. He currently has a -10 Easton S1 but has been swinging an Easton S3 BBCOR for middle school. I was thinking about moving him to a -8 big barrel for his travel team to give him more strength than -10. How would you compare this CF6 to the Combat Wanted and the Easton XL1? Which would you recommend for him?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) Senior League and the COMBAT Wanted are both balanced bats with a two-piece composite design. The XL1 is a two-piece composite design with an end loaded swing weight. The XL1 is great for power hitters and the CF6 and Wanted are terrific bats for contact hitters.
My son is 11 years old, 5'5" and 185 lbs. He was hitting them over the fence last season with a CF5 31" -11. What size would you recommend in the CF6?
Based on his height and weight we recommend a 32" 24 oz. 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR
Is this legal for Pony League?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) is legal in Pony League.
Looking for the best performance -8. My son really hit well all year with the CF4 last year (-8) but really hit some bombs with a teammates Voodoo (-9). What bat would you recommend this season? He has gotten a lot stronger this year as well should he go to a -5?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 ( DXCFR) is designed for contact hitter than needs to increase their bat speed. The DeMarini Voodoo (DXVDR) is end loaded and better for a power hitter. We recommend the -8 or -9 bat.
My son is 5'1 and 112 lbs. I'm going to a -8 this year for him but wonder if he needs to stay at 30" length or 31"?
Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 31" 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR). For more information regarding sizing, feel free to visit our Bat Coach: http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/.
Is it legal for middle school?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) Senior League features the new USSSA 1.15 BPF stamp and should be legal for middle school. However, leagues can vary on their rules and it is always best to double check with league officials.
im 5' 2 and about 100 pounds. im a contact hitter. i want a bat with good pop that will be good for me. should i get the easton mako or cf6?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) and the 2014 Easton MAKO are both two-piece composite bats, designed for a contact hitter. They are both balanced and very high performing. The MAKO has a slightly extended barrel. The CF6 offers a D-Fusion handle to help reduce vibration, but this also causes it to feel stiffer.
Is the CF6 -8 Babe Ruth certified?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League is not approved in any division of Babe Ruth Baseball. Babe Ruth has more strict regulations all bats with 2 5/8" barrel diameters made from composite materials. If a Big Barrel bat has a composite barrel, it is required to be BBCOR certified. Only -3 bats are BBCOR certified, so this -8 CF6 model would not be allowed.
Is this more end loaded than the CF5 -10 big barrel? Because the old CF5 is too light for me.
The 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League is more balanced than the CF5. If you prefer an end loaded bat we recommend the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo: DXVDR Senior League.
My son is 5'2" about 95 lbs and playing 13U Travel Elite Baseball. He used a 30" -10 Rawlings VELO, he has very fast hands, would this bat be too light?
If he has very quick hands the 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League will be a little too light for him. We recommend the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo: DXVDR Senior League. It has an end loaded feel, designed for a player with quick hands.
My son is 10 yrs old 54" tall and 65 lbs and has really fast hands. Looking for a bat with some pop, and also a properly sized bat. Was using a 28" 17 oz. and it just looks way to small for him.
Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 29" 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League. If he can swing an end loaded bat the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo: DXVDR Senior League is good option for power hitters.
What drop is this bat available in?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League is available in a -8 and -10. There is also a BBCOR model available which is a -3.
Why do they not make it in -5? I love DeMarini and I might just have to settle for a -8.
Unfortunately, DeMarini did not produce the 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League in a -5.
I have a son who will be playing travel ball. he is 59 inches and 105 lbs. he is a strong power hitter. what lenght bat should i ge? and at what age or size should i be looking at -8 bat
Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 30" model. The suggested bat weight depends on the preference for the player. There is no required weight until you get to high school when you are need to have a -3.
As far as pop which is better, the Voodoo or CF6? Would the 29" 21 oz. CF6 and 29" 20 oz. Voodoo feel the same? Would the CF6 feel lighter? Lastly, does this bat require any break-in period?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League and 2014 DeMarini Voodoo are very comparable in terms of performance, as they'll both push the 1.15 BPF limits. The CF6 is well balanced, and better suited for a contact hitter than the end loaded Voodoo, which is a good choice for a power hitter. The Voodoo will feel heavier than advertised, due to the end loaded weight distribution. The CF6 will require a break-in period of 150-200 swings due to the two-piece composite design. The Voodoo will not require a break-in, as it has an alloy barrel and composite handle.
Is it composite?
Yes, the 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League is a two-piece fully composite bat.
How will the CF6 perform relative to the CF5?
The 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFR Senior League bat will out perform the previous year model CF5 due to the new Paradox Composite. This composite will allow for a larger sweet spot. Also, the CF6 will feature DeMarini's new D-Fusion handle technology. This new technology will help eliminate vibration upon contact.
Is the weight distribution the same as the Easton XL series? Will this bat have the "end loaded" feel?
No. The DeMarini CF6 will have a balanced fee like the Easton S Series.
What is the advantage of a -8 versus a -10 DeMarini CF6?
If you have the strength to generate good bat speed the -8 will allow you to hit for more power as opposed to the -10 model. Going to a -8 would also allow you to make an easier jump to a BBCOR model which will be required by the time a player gets to high school.
Is the sweet spot on the -10 the same size as the -8?
Yes, the 2014 DeMarini CF6 -8 and -10 will have approximately the same sized sweet spot.
When will you have a 31" model in stock?
We are scheduled to get the 31" models shortly. As these are made available to us, we will make them available to pre-book for the November 1st release.
