DeMarini 2012 CF5 Insane -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat

Built for the player who wants a little more end load in her game. Tri Strut TR3 composite provides strength, stability and consistent performance without any unnecessary weight. Dual-density endcap maintains barrel stiffness while dampening impact vibration. Optimal energy transfer to barrel and ball. Handle is also made of Tri Strut TR3 composite, gaining strength through triangular formations at the molecular level. Great for college and high school players.

Length: 32 33 34
Weight: 22 23 24
Alloy: Composite

Comments about DeMarini 2012 CF5 Insane -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat:

I bought this bat for my daughter when she was 13. The bat is an end loaded design which took her getting used too versus a balanced bat. During games she was late almost every swing till we had her choke up a little....once she was able to get the bat around faster this bat had demonstrated unbelieveable pop. My daughter became a hitting machine once she got used to the end loaded bat. She has a 32/22 (10)...A 31/21 would have been ideal for her but by choking up she figured it out! I would definitely recommend this bat, but make sure to test first if never using an end loaded bat versus a balanced bat. If an end load isn't for her, then go to the CF5 Hope or balanced versions. DeMarini CF5 bats are hot right out of the wrapper and only get hotter!

    Comments about DeMarini 2012 CF5 Insane -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat:

    This bat has as much pop as a RocketTech, but has truer results after a day of hitting. Plus, as it breaks in it will gain launch due to the composite barrel.

    Ball rockets off bat

    By C.C.

    from Garden Grove Ca.

    Comments about DeMarini 2012 CF5 Insane -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat:

    Ball with end load travels farther and harder off bat. Other players are also using with same results.
