DETAILS Revamped from the CF7 model, the CF8 from DeMarini is stronger and more powerful than previous CF model fastpitch bats in this line. Improving on DeMarinis proprietary Paradox Plus+ composite and the D-Fusion handle, the CF8 is hot right out of the wrapper and ready for the serious fastpitch player looking improve her game with a high performance bat. New to the CF line as part of the CF8 release, the CF8 WTDXCFA SLAPPER (-10) is designed specifically for those pesky left-handed slap hitters. The CF8 SLAPPER carries a (-10) drop with its weight distribution closer to the hands, for maximum control of the barrel. Along with the new weight distribution, DeMarini has also extended the barrel from the standard 13 to 14 for this bat. By adding this extra inch to the barrel, the slapper now has an extreme reach, for making contact just about anywhere around the strike zone. The bat can be used for hitting away, but is best when used working as a lefty slap hitter. The barrel is composed of DeMarinis stronger Paradox Plus+ composite. This material is as light as the composite used in the CF7, but stronger giving it a longer shelf-life as well as more pop. The handle is composed of a carbon infused Paradox Plus+ composite. This creates a stiffer handle, for reduced vibration in the hands on a miss-hit and more energy back to the barrel. The 2-piece design is connected by the D-Fusion 2.0 handle. This connection point has gotten a make-over from the CF7 model, enough so to dub it the 2.0 version. The D-Fusion 2.0 has been optimized to redirect vibration from the barrel away from the handle and back up to the barrel. This redirected energy is used against the ball, creating an incredibly responsive bat. In doing so, the player can focus more on solid base hits and less on the sting in the hands from the vibration of miss hits. By putting a heavy focus on redirecting vibration back to the barrel and using high quality composite materials, the batter can rest assured knowing that regardless of where the ball hits the barrel, the CF8 is going to perform to the highest standard regulations will permit.
