2017 Demarini CF Zen youth bat
SUMMARY: Like most youth baseball bat manufacturers, Demarini went all out with their line of 2017 models. The 2017 Demarini CF Zen youth bat features a fully composite two piece construction with one of the most durable barrels ever produced in youth baseball. This barrel encompasses Demarini’s brand new ParaFlex Composite that’s documented to house a 22% stronger carbon fiber material for maximum performance and enhanced sweet spot. The CF Zen also utilizes the company’s D-Fusion 2.0 Handle Technology which has earned an impressive reputation for drastically reducing shock vibration and maximizing energy transfer keeping batters confident at the plate. As far as balance, the CF Zen delivers a supremely balanced swing weight featuring Demarini’s Low Pro End Cap. Top to bottom, the 2017 Demarini CF Zen distributes consistent solid and powerful contact.
OUR REVIEW: The 2017 Demarini CF Zen received consistently high scores during our evaluation process in the categories of durability, vibration control and overall experience. In fact, the CF Zen has been the most durable bat we have evaluated to date displaying the least amount scratches and marks after the 150 swings. A large portion of our volunteer hitter’s notated that the CF Zen carried impressive pop and a very light swing. One particular hitter stated “I wasn’t expecting to drive the ball as far as I did when I felt how light the bat was”. This bat truly embodies the essence of Demarini youth bats by featuring ultra-effective blend of power, durability, speed and comfort. The 2017 CF Zen is fantastic bat for all players however we specifically recommended it for skilled contact hitters who make consistent contact yet display some difficulties in drive the ball for power.
