Rated 4 out of 5 by Mike BBCOR bat
The bat works great for my high schooler. Got 10% coupon for next online purchase, but it had so many exclusions it was disheartening. I will buy my running shoes somewhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by James H A Great Bat
the over all quality of this bat is tremendous. The graphics are truly divine and thecraftsmanship is ell above average. The grip is very comfortable, yet remarkably sticky. The feel when you get a solid hit with this bat is comparable to any other high end demarini model; you know if its a good hit or not and the sting is minimal and practically unnoticable.
The workers who are assigned to wrapping the grips never seem to be perfect (afterall, they are human,) so its not uncommon for the grip to beoe undone or occasionally become whethered. Aside from the grip, the only con could be found in the design of all 2 piece bats. At. Some point, composite mst become alloy At that point the walls re te thinnest so if you get jammed, you may end up feeling a strange vibration as well as hearing a strange noise almost like a crack. There really is no wayfor demarini to engineer a half and half derign without this problem, so they shouldn't be discredited at all for their craftsmanship.
Overall, i wouldn't trade this bat for the world. The vexxum and CF5 along with this bat are the only BBCOR bats that feel right when your at the plate. While it is a matter of opinion, the other companies who are competing in the realm of bats should try harder to balance comfort in the hands of the batter, Proper design in the make-up of the bat and performance at the plate at the same level as detni has been oing te the last couple of years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Buddha Broken after 3 months of use
My son used this bat for 3 months in high school competition and then it quickly lost its pop. Could feel vibration when tapping the handle on the ground so returned it for a warranty replacement. Everyone should understand that a Demarini 'warranty' consists of a one-time replacement with a bat that is stamped 'replacement' so you don't even know if it's first quality. For a $300 bat, Demarini should provide first quality replacements as often as required for a whole year. We have since moved on to the Rawlings 5150 which has performed great for half the price.

This bat retailed for 299.99 and was marked down to 199.99 and there was an extra 50% off that price when we purchased plus we had a 10.00 off from our high school ticket stub which bought the final price to 89.99. What a buy for a BBCOR -3 for the upcoming high school season. BBCOR label is on the barrell which makes it leagel as I understand that if it is on the handle it will not be legal. Know the legal from non legal bats has been confusing the past several years.
My son has used this bat in the past from teammates and other models that we have owned and he is very pleased with this one.
With two sons playing high school and travel ball this was a blessing to be able to save this much on two bats. We also purchased an Easton bat with the same markdown savings. Thank you Dick's

This is a good bat i got it back in March and used it all summer but now it is dead. I thought for the price and all the hype it would be better but it only lasted one summer of high school baseball. i will reccomend this bat but don't let anyone else use it.

this bat is amazing. i have had this bat for 3 weeks, and have been hitting with everyday. its still hits the same as when i hit the first pitch with it. the half and half construction of this bat is what gives it its awesome pop. i would tell any person looking for a bat [$] and up to get this bat. hope this was helpful

I got this -3 bat and im only 13 and 4ft 9. I did not want to get it because I thought it would be too heavy. I was wrong. The aluminum in the barrel, the composite in the handle, and the bbcor filling gives you the best bat for a great price.
