The release date for the 2020 DeMarini CF is not yet publicly know. Our expectation is they will be released anytime from the end of July to the beginning of August. We did get a sneak peak at the College World Series that the new 2020 DeMarini CF in BBCOR and USSSA. Note, the bat is NOT called the CF Zen but, instead, just the CF.
Reviews delivered about every week.
There is, too, a limited edition of the 2020 CF which you can get early. But it does drive a premium. DeMarini released the 2020 CF Nightfall at the College World Series. These are uniquely numbered from 1 to 100 and you can find them directly on DeMarini’s site. Last we heard these are EXTREMELY limited so likely won’t last long.
We have yet to have extensive experience with the 2020 DeMarini CF (it has yet to be released yet), we do know it will contain most of the same great features that have made the CF Zens of year’s past a top performing bat. It is a two piece composite bat built with a huge barrel profile, a great smooth connection and a balanced swing.
As far as we have been told, there will NOT be an endloaded version of the 2020 DeMarini CF. Instead, expect the end loaded versions for DeMarini to be in the new The Goods line.
There will be a Demarini CF in both a senior league version and a BBCOR version. As well, there will be some USA versions of the bat released a little bit later in the year.
It's too early to tell if DeMarini addressed the only serious complaint folks have with DeMarini's Senior League bat. That is, of course, its durability. But, our sentiment is that DeMarini has proven willing to keep pushing the performance limit at the expense of bats that aren't as durable. To date, based on sheer market dominance, the strategy has worked.
We have hit with the BBCOR, Drop 5, Drop 8 and Drop 10 2019 DeMarini CF Zen. The bat rakes. Plain and simple.
DeMarini's CF line of baseball bats are, arguably, the most popular bats on the planet. We have hit, and reviewed, every CF series since the CF3.
In the Senior League arena few make the case the CF series from DeMarini has an equal. It dominates the USSSA big barrel bat space, and we see no reason that will change 2020. Of course, though, the jury is still out.
In terms of two piece composite Senior League bats you have a few options. Slugger’s 919 Prime, Easton’s Ghost Evolution and Rawling’s Quatro are the most common similar bats.
In BBCOR the world is your oyster. It feels like everyone makes a two piece composite that swings light and has a big barrel. The field is mixed. Rawling’s Quatro and Slugger’s Meta Prime as well a Easton’s ADV all compete for the top end performing BBCOR bat.
The most popular and highly rated BBCOR bat for 2019 is back in the 2020 Louisivlle Slugger Meta Prime. We took to the cage, spoke to some folks at Slugger and write this 2020 Meta Prime Review. Expect a release date between late July and Early September 2019. It is ONLY set to be released in BBCOR. USSSA and USA hitters will need to wait for a Slugger Meta in their league.Price Check
We can’t believe this will be Rawling’s 4th year of the Quatro. We took the 2020 USA Quatro to the field for some hitting as well as discussed the major changes in the bat with Rawlings directly. That information, as well as the information we measured, comprises this 2020 Rawlings Quatro Pro Review.Price Check
For the 2020 College World, DeMarini released a limited edtion of the 2020 DeMarini CF. It is called the DeMarini Nightfall. This is, in short, a BBCOR only bat uniquely numbered from 1 to 100. It drives a premium price but is limited edition–pricing out much like a custom DeMarini CF might.
In any event, the bat is the same as the 2020 DeMarini CF which is available later in the summer of 2019.
If you want the 2020 CF now then you can have it. But, like most things, it will cost you.
DeMarini uses a two piece composite bat structure for the 2020 CF. The two pieces are made from composite materials.
The connection piece, where the bat’s barrel and handle are fused together, intends to remove sting from the hands and keep energy in the barrel. There is more tech in the connection piece than we’ll give time for it here. But, for what it is worth, DeMarini has long been the leader in top end connective pieces in their two piece bats.
As well, the composite structure in the barrels matter. A lot. The differences in composite makes ups are what give bats from competing companies such different feels.
