Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very poor quality and durability I purchased this bat for my son's batting clinic and within two weeks (2 total sessions of hitting indoors), the bat has an indentation. This should not happen to a bat that has been swung at underhand pitches - this clinic is all about proper hitting technique and form. I purchased a DeMarini thinking this was a quality product. I will be returning this bat to Dick's in the next couple of days in the hope of some remuneration. A 10 year old does not have the bat speed to hit "indoor gym" soft baseballs hard enough to damage a new "high strength and durability" bat. Even a $70.00 bat should last longer than this - LOL.....I still have my bats I used in little league 30+ years ago. Granted, they are heavier, but they NEVER received a dent from a baseball.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Do Not buy this bat Large dent the first day my 9 year old used the bat. DeMarini is honoring warranty and they are aware of issues with this bat. They will not refund my money but will send a different replacement bat which will take 2-3 weeks to receive ( Also I have to pay for shiopping back to Demarini)- Beware!! March 26, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by WORTHLESS My son used this bat ONE time and it is riddled with dents. If you are looking for a good bat this is NOT it. He has gotten more use out of a Walmart special than this "name brand" junk. June 19, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Avoid, avoid, AVOID Bought this bat for my 7 year old. He is a decent size kid and all but does NOT swing hard or anything. 8 games into the season this bat is completely worthless. There isn't a place on the barrel that ISN'T dented. And these are not small dents either, it is literally caving in and basically square. Sure it isn't a high dollar bat compared to some, but it isn't exactly the cheapest either. I would give it zero if I could. Completely worthless and will likely never buy another DeMarini moving forward. Junk. Complete junk. May 30, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Okay bat for first year of baseball..... It was my son's first year of little league, and I bought the 30", 18oz bat for him. It seemed to work pretty well for him, but by the end of the season, it was riddled with dents. Not small little dings, but very large dents. The bat is almost square at this point. I figured that this was a good bat for the price, but I never did look at the reviews online, Live and learn.... I guess I'll have to get a second mortgage this year and step up to a composite bat to avoid this issue. Other than the whole dent thing, my son made a few good hits while using this bat, so it's not too bad, but don't expect to pass it down to the younger children. March 7, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Demarini stands for dents I bought this bat for my 9 year old last year. 70 bucks for a bat that is dented from a 65 pound kid. Demarini has impressive reputation but stay away from this one. Hoping to buy a better bat that wont vibrate so much and dent so easily. Big disappointment. Gonna go look for my Dicks proof of purchase to return it now. Looks like you gotta spend over 100 dollars for a good bat. What a shame when kids grow so fast! June 9, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Poor Bat After my son's 2nd game, I noticed huge dents in the barrel, I asked him if he was hitting something with it and he said "no" this just happened after my last hit. He is 7 years old hitting off a pitching machine...this has never happened with any bat I have ever bought...unfortunately we bought two of these as I have twins...these bats are garbage!!!! June 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My son really loves it THe bat is great but the sales person on the floor was really the best experience I have had at a store for a long time. His name was Caleb (Grove City location). I do not know if this will make it to the manager at that location but he does deserve the credit for the time that he took with my son and finding the correct bat and equipment. HE went the extra mile and did not have to. THANKS CALEB. May 21, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 3 practices later and a dent Could be defective but after 3 batting practices (indoor) the bad has a nice dent in the barrel. Not sure how that is possible but it happened. Of course it would be alot easier to replace at Dicks but I guess policy is to return to manufacturer. Just hope I get a refund cause I dont want another one. I got my son a nice easton bat that he is definatly liking alot better. February 6, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great initially but....... My 8 year old coach pitch baseball playing son used this bat in his 1st 3 games. The bat worked really well for him. However, after the 3rd game while placing it back in the bat bag, I noticed a very significant dent in the barrel. While my son does get some good hits, he is certainly not smashing the ball hard enough to dent the barrel. Huge disappointment. Obviously poor quality if the bat cannot within 3 games of a single batter on coach pitch. Will try to get my $ back or this exchanged for something else. June 8, 2013
