DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Bat: DX243 Adult review by Buck
Pros: I did not know how far wood bat technology had advanced until I got the DX243. This thing is a trophy! It also hammers the baseball. Thanks for a superior product. Cons:My only regret about this bat is that I did not have it during 1957 when I started 10th grade. That is not the bat's fault.

DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Bat: DX243 Adult review by PMac4da2009
Pros: Good bat for transitioning from aluminum to wood, especially for the younger player, aged 13-15. Weight being placed in the end makes for good power transition to ball. Balls hit between the logo and on pro maple emblem are true. Warranty really hold up. Bat lasted an entire season in 25 and up mens league before breaking, in a season on 25 games. No fear of breaking bat on inside pitches. Cons:Hard to go from all wood back down to composite bat. Found bat to be light in hands afterwards. If you swing a -3 you might consider going up an additional inch in length for this bat to adjust to wood bat weights. I use 33" wood and 34" Pro Maple now.

DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Bat: DX243 Adult review by JC
Pros: It is like driving a 4 cyclinder Accord, it does the job well with little flash. The feel off the bat is muted and the sound is muffled to a full maple bat, but pop is similar and as advertised it won't break. I have used it a lot in the cage and probably 75 game AB's. I figure it has saved me from breaking about 3 bats which is where the value is with this bat. I would buy it again if it broke Cons:The cap showing length on the handle dissappeared sometime within warranty period. Didn't want to lose bat for a couple of weeks to get it replaced.

Pros: The ball jumps off the bat nicely. The weight is distributed very well and is a true minus 3. It is holding up very well after several wood bat tournaments. Cons:The grip is slippery but nothing some pine tar can't fix.

Pros: Pop is exceptional for wood. Our entire team uses thois bat for our legion games (not an exaggeration) and it hasnt broken and thats been about 1000 at bats and 100 jams atleast. and not even a crack. Cons:You need to use Pine tar. A lot of it. It will slip out but if thats the only worry, Then this is one exceptional bat.

Pros: Nicely balanced and very good pop! Never thought I could like a non-metal bat but this is a great stick! Cons:Having used metal for so long the handle without a grip felt somewhat slippery. I just bought a replacement grip for $5 and problem solved!

DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Bat: DX243 Adult review by RJ
Pros: I've had this bat for more than three years now, and it's been through a lot. I've hit thousands upon thousands of balls with this, many of them in the batting cage. It truly is indestructible. And it had great pop for a would bat for a while. Definitely a great investment for what is now a great batting practice bat. Cons:Does lose a little bit of pop over time, but that's expected in any bat especially after 3 years

DeMarini Pro Maple Composite Wood Bat: DX243 Adult review by FTT_MN
Pros: This bat is awesome. I have played amateur baseball for 5 years now and have always used real Maple bats before trying out this composite. This year, with this bat, I have hit 3 home runs, 9 doubles, 5 triples, with a .451 average and .770 SLG% leading our league in AVG and SLG%. My highlights with this bat include a 430 foot home run to left center (fence was 400 to center, 465 to left center). Cons:No cons. I don't think this bat can break! I've had hits off the handle of this bat that surely would have broken the maple bats I've used in the past.

Pros: Beautiful bat with excellent balance and feel. Despite the sound off the bat, the ball comes off the bat nice. Cons:Very slippery handle. I broke my first bat after 7 at bats on a pop-up to the pitcher. I broke the second bat after 5 at bats on a bloop to short. In total, between game time and batting practice I figure the total investment ended after a return of approximately $1.00 per hit. Kayla at Demarini replied to my e-mail request that chances of a second replacement were "very slim to none".
