FYI: There is a newer version of this bat
Built on their long line of success within the CF family, the DeMarini CF7 baseball bat comes with one of the the lightest swing on the planet.
While other companies are trying to sell us $550+ bats with spinning handles, DeMarini is approaching the plate this year with what it seems like players want: the best plate coverage with the smoothest swing.

DeMarini CF7 Video Review
Look, if you can find a BBCOR CF7 then buy it. These bats are famous for a reason and people love the feel and performance. It really doesn’t get any better than these bats—and if you can get one at a discount then hallelujah.
In the 2015 class the most comparable bat is Easton’s Mako. It, too, is a two piece composite bat with a big barrel, light swing and monster smash.. You might also take a look at the 2015 915 Prime from Slugger. Although in its first year of product it makes a legit offering—and in the secondary market it is remarkably less expensive than the CF7.

College Teams Using DeMarini
Some successful collegiate teams swing high end bats from DeMarini more often than any others. In fact, 38% of teams in the 2014 NCAA tournament this year swung Demarini–better than the second place, Louisville Slugger, by a full 16%. This reality may explain some sweet custom made CF7’s DeMarini’s (or is that the Overlord?) provided to, at least to the twittersphere, OSU. Check it:
2015 CF7 Construction
The CF7 is a two piece composite bat with a big barrel and a light swing weight. At the time of its construction in 2015 this was a unique piece in the market and Demarini crushed it. Many companies now follow suit and try and create this type of bat.
DeMarini’s use of a connective piece and high end composite still work today. And, in large, measure, the bats produced today are not much different than the 2015 DeMarini CF7.
Bat Sizing Options
The CF7 comes in nearly every size imaginable. A BBCOR with lengths from 30 to 34. A senior league in drop 10 with either a 2 5/8 or 2 3/4 barrel. A 2 3/4 drop 8 as well. And don’t forget the youth barrel (2 1/4) in a drop 11. Those looking for a drop 5 should zero in on the DeMarini Voodoo.
