Rated 1 out of 5 by Vin 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!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by nicknayme 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JMom 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CoachTom Great for my little Single A ball player
I recently bought this bat for my son who is playing Single A little league (machine pitch). It is a well balanced bat and the ball really takes off. There are composite ones like this but twice the price. I considered the more expensive one for a moment but am very glad I chose this one. Highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Froggy Just as good as the more expensive bats.
The price of this bat was competitive. I was looking at the more expensive bat but was wondering how fast my son would grow out of it. My son likes it and now is ready for the next season.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by juice mans dad 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Caribbeandreamer 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.
