The DeMarini CF7 baseball bat, with Paradox +Plus composite and D-Fusion FT handle, is DeMarini’s top-of-the-line for 2015; perfect for the serious player looking for an evenly balanced, light-swinging bat without losing any power or pop.
The Paradox +Plus composite makes up the entire barrel of the CF7. This material has been improved from last year’s top-of-the-line CF6 and is not only stronger, but lighter in weight. This speed and strength from the Paradox +Plus material provides an unmatched combination of faster swing speeds and maximum power – perfect for both contact and power hitters.
The D-Fusion FT handle is a compilation of a Paradox +Plus rod with a thermo-fused taper. This thermo-fused taper creates alley-ways to redirect vibration, generated at contact, away from the handle and back to the barrel. This not only eliminates the vibration in the hands, giving the hitter more confidence in the swing, but uses that redirected energy to make an exceptionally responsive barrel. The Flame Tempered treatment (the “FT” in D-Fusion FT) specially fuses the handle to the barrel, creating a 2-piece bat that has a stiffer feel with reduced vibration.
As DeMarini says, the CF7 bat is “Lightweight. HIGH Power. HIGH TECH.”
My son has been absolutely demolishing balls since getting this bat a week ago. He's had 3 practices with the CF7 (-10) and I'm pretty sure when he walks into his training facility tomorrow night all of the baseballs are going to roll away and hide! My son has the Mako Torq and Mako, but this bat seems to be on a entirely different level. My son is small for his age, but he has a very aggressive swing and this bat is perfect for him. I would HIGHLY recommend this bat over the Mako. It's a very cool looking bat too. Proper mechanics will always take precedence over equipment, but all things being equal... this bat will hit the ball harder and farther than most!Review by Jim (Posted on 1/15/15)
