2016 DeMarini Reviews
2016 DeMarini Bat Reviews: The 2016 CF8, Voodoo Raw, NVS Vexxum and Insane grace the shelves for DeMarini. Here is a preview of the 2016 class of DeMarini Bats.
The 2016 CF8 will be the flagship bat from DeMarini this year. It continues to be a two piece composite bat but, this year, comes with an longer and wider barrel on most versions. Check the full review for details.
The 2016 Voodoo Raw is an upgrade to the Overlord FT. It comes in specialized colors for each age group as well as some upgraded stiffness in a D-Fusion 2.0 handle.
The CF8 fastpitch line of DeMarini is their most robust with a bat for every hitter. Improvements to the handle from the 2015 version make this bat stellar and one to watch. Check the full review for more details.
The Insane is one our favorite single piece aluminum bats on the market with it’s heavy hitting style. It’s an aluminum log, but fills a good need for the hitter looking to recreate the wood bat experience.
The Uprising serves as DeMarini’s low end mass market option. Not anything to get too excited about—except for maybe it’s price point.
2015 DeMarini Reviews
2015 DeMarini CF7 Review: The CF7 is the flagship baseball bat of one of the baseball bat industry’s flagship bat company. The CF series is DeMarini’s top shelf bat. It rivals the best bat on the market and DeMarini believes it is the best technology money can buy.
2015 DeMarini CF7 Drop 5 Review: So Impressive, it gets it own review.
2015 DeMarini Overlord FT Review: DeMarini Voodoo Overlord FT is an upgraded Voodoo from years past. It still boasts the same two piece hybrid design with an endload but the Flame Tempered transition adds barrel stability and drive through contact.
2015 DeMarini NVS Vexxum Review: Arguably the best value purchase in 2015 the NVS Vexxum from DeMarini is back. Like years past (without the NVS title) it is still a two-piece hybrid.
2015 DeMarini Insane Review: DeMarini’s only one piece alloy in its 2015 line up the DeMarini Insane is made for hitters who prefer the power of one piece bats and a parents who prefer a very affordable price point.

DeMarini Bat Company Overview
DeMarini bats is owned by Wilson Sporting Goods (which also owns Louisville Slugger). The company’s base is in Portland, Oregon but runs operations out of Chicago Illinois. They were founded by a man named Ray DeMarini who sold softball bats out of his trunk in the mid 90’s among the amateur leagues of Oregon. The bats, called the double-wall Demarini were straight out firecrackers. Crazy, crazy hot and, at least nowadays, crazy illegal too. Ray took that knowledge of making hot bats that performed along the length of the barrel into the baseball space a few years later.
DeMarini bats, arguably, in the baseball space only Easton as a true competitor. Although many would say there are a few making a good run at that group of 2 on top of the baseball bat hill. Demarini is also considered a top brand in both the slowpitch and fastpitch space too. Most, if not all, players serious about baseball and softball have heard the DeMarini brand name and, more than likely, swung a few of their sticks.
