Questions and Answers for DeMarini Juggernaut Slow Pitch Softball Bat: DXNT3
If I have a 27 oz. DeMarini Aftermath, should I get a 27 oz. Juggy? I was told the Juggy is pretty end loaded, but I'm debating between a 26 or a 27.
Based on my experience with both bats, I would push you toward the 27 oz. model of the Juggernaut, as well. The most noticeable difference in the designs to me would be that the Flipper Aftermath has a slightly longer barrel, but the Juggy offers more flex/whip in your swing.
Is the DeMarini Juggernaut or the DeMarini Flipper Aftermath better for a contact hitter? I'm not a big guy, so I don't plan on smashing many homeruns.
The 2014 DeMarini Juggernaut Slow Pitch Softball Bat (DXNT3) would be a better option. It will have a balanced feel and lighter swing weight compared to the Flipper Aftermath.
What is the BPF rating?
The 2014 DeMarini Juggernaut Slow Pitch Softball Bat (DXNT3) is an ASA model, so we unfortunately wouldn't have a BPF rating for this model, as the BPF test regulates USSSA and Senior Softball models. DeMarini may be able to give you a more precise number, and you can contact them directly at: (800) 937-2287.

How does this bat compare to the Stadium CL22 for ASA?
The 2014 DeMarini Juggernaut Slow Pitch Softball Bat (DXNT3) and the 2014 DeMarini Stadium CL22 Slow Pitch Softball Bat (DXST2-V14) are very similar to each other, since they both feature a two-piece design and end loaded swing weight. Main differences between the two are that the CL22 is a hybrid bat, where it has an alloy handle and composite barrel. It also features an extremely end loaded swing weight and has a stiffer overall feel than the Juggy. The Juggernaut is a fully composite bat that features multi-wall technology. Both are high performance models and would be great options for a power hitter.
Do I need to break it in? If so how?
We would recommend a brief break-in period for the 2014 DeMarini Juggernaut Slow Pitch Softball Bat (DXNT3) of about 50-100 swings while rotating the barrel of the bat a quarter turn each hit.
Which one would hit the 44core 370 compression ball the Juggernaut or Aftermath?
Both the 2014 DeMarini Juggernaut Slow Pitch Softball Bat (DXNT3) and the 2014 DeMarini Flipper Aftermath ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (DXFLS-V14) feature the new ASA stamp, which means that they are meant for use with the softer 52 COR balls.

Bats that have the 2004 ASA stamps will be able hold up best with the harder 44 COR balls, since they were tested for use against the them.
I would like to know if this bat is better than The ONE?
The 2014 DeMarini Juggernaut Softball Bat (DXNT3) and the 2014 DeMarini The ONE: (DXONE) are both very high performing bats. The DXONE is a stiffer bat and is end loaded, better for a power hitter. The DXNT3 is more balanced and best for a contact hitter.
It says it's a multi-wall, is it a double wall?
The 2014 Demarini Juggernaut (DXNT3) is made with stacked composite technology. So the barrel has layers of composite but is not technically double walled.

The 2014 DeMarini Juggernaut Softball Bat (DXNT3 Slow Pitch) will be a two-piece fully composite design. The Louisville Slugger Z-3000 will feature the same design. They will both be balanced. Both are getting great reviews and should provide excellent results.
Is the Juggernaut better than the Miken Psycho Supermax? How about for ISA rules? The Miken compression tested at 1750 psi, what would the Juggernaut test at? Do they need to be broken in as well?
Both of these bats are going to be high performing. The 2014 DeMarini Juggernaut (DXNT3) is not approved for ISA play, while the Miken Izzy Psycho Supermax (SPSYMU) is approved for ISA play. For compression testing, that information is not relayed to us by the manufacturer. Both bats are made of composite materials, so they will need to be broken in. We recommend 150-200 swings off a tee or soft toss.
Is the end loaded weight the same on the 26oz and the 27oz? And also any idea how many oz is on the end load?
The 26 oz. and the 27 oz. will have the same weight distribution. With that being said, DeMarini lists the 2014 DeMarini Juggernaut Softball Bat (DXNT3) Slow Pitch bat as having an "end-loaded triple wall barrel". However, many believe that the bat feels lighter than many end loaded options. Unfortunately I do not have the exact end-load weight since this bat is considered end-loaded by some and balanced by others.
Which bat will hit the 52/300 ball better? The new DeMarini Juggy, or the new DeMarini The ONE all associations bat.
