DeMarini CF5 Youth Bat 2013 (-11)
My son would probably be the better person to write this review, as he has used the bat as of this review for about 10 at bats. He is a pretty good hitter but was struggling at the plate, my purchase was more "psychological" than physical, but the outcome was amazing. As I read in other reviews of the bat before purchasing, the ball really seems to pop off the bat. If your son or daughter has good bat speed they will really benefit from this bat. This was the most I have ever spent for a bat in my lifetime, but times have changed and I look at it as money well spent!

A monster bat
I got mine 2 weeks ago and used in a game the day after I got it and got my 10th hit of the first half and its not even broken in! And today I hit a monster line drive right through the gap, and just WOW this bat rocks right out of the wrapper

You know, I read these reviews and others around the net and they all sounded like a PR machine at work. Yesterday I had my son (10) at the batting cages and they had a demo of the CF available for use. I put it in his hands and was immediately wowed. Stopped and picked one up on the way home. Put about 100 hits on it last night to begin break in. He really wanted to use it in his game today, even though I thought it needed a little more break in. First AB was a line drive deep into the OF. Second AB was a 230ft bomb over the fence. His first home run ever!
He's always been a very good hitter. But a tad slow though the strike zone. That's what immediately improved with this bat. He ripped through the zone and the extra pop you get with this bat put him over the top.
It's expensive for a youth bat for sure. But you get what you pay for. It won't turn a poor hitter into a great one by itself. But in the right hands it's definitely a difference maker.

I recently just got the bat and it has already is doing me well. This bat has lots of pop. It has no sting unless hitting the ball on the TR3 F.L.O composite part. Which is hitting a inside pitch.
