Questions and Answers for DeMarini Pro Maple Wood Baseball Bat: DX271 Adult
What is the size of the barrel? I have looked online and some sites say it is 2 1/2 inches while others say it is a 2 5/8 inch. Why is this? Is the barrel the same size or bigger than the Mizuno MZC271?
Both the 2015 Mizuno Bamboo Elite Baseball Bat (MZE271) and the DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Baseball Bat (DX271) will have a 2 1/2 inch barrel diameter because they are modeled after the 271 standard turn which is a 2 1/2 inch barrel diameter model. I cannot speculate as to why some sites would list it differently.
Will a composite wood bat have more pop than a normal wood bat?
Composite wood bats like the DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Baseball Bat (DX271) perform similarly to standard wood bats. The composite material adds to the durability of the bat rather than a significant change in performance or "pop."
I am a contact and power hitter and I want to know if this bat or the DX243 suits me? Also, which bat do you think is more durable?
The DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Baseball Bat (DX271) and the DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Baseball Bat (DX243) will both have similar durability. If you are more of a power hitter, the slightly end-loaded feel of the DX243 may be preferable for you over the more balanced feel of the DX271.
How does the DeMarini S243 compare to Marucci AP5?
The DeMarini Pro Maple Wood Composite Bat BBCOR Baseball Bat (S243) is very different from the Marucci Albert Pujols Maple Wood Baseball Bat (AP5NB). The S243 will be more barrel heavy and features a composite handle and two-piece design. Teh AP5 is a standard single-piece regular maple bat. Comparing the two would be like comparing apples to oranges.
