2023 DeMarini CF Fastpitch Review

Demarini has released the new 2023 Demarini CF softball fastpitch bat, and it has hit the market with minimal changes in the 2022 model.

Drop 8 and 9 have comparatively stiffer handle profiles this season, whereas drop 10 and 11 largely remain the same as the previous year, however, with different paintwork.

The CF series has two-piece bats, which are suitable for power hitters and contact hitters alike. Drop 10 and 11 have balanced swing weight, and drops 8 and 9 have an end-loaded swing. So, the Demarini CF bats got something for everyone.

Also, the bat offers a great pop due to a massive sweet spot which does wonders for power-hitters.

The 2023 CF bats fail to impress the softballers with durability. However, they cost way less than the Easton Ghost rivals in the market.

Build Quality

The new Demarini CF for 2023 fastpitch is one of the best two-piece composite fastpitch bats with both the end-loaded and balanced drops and hence the respective swing weights.

The 8 and 9 drops offer robust swings to power hitters, whereas the other two drops give balanced swings to young softballers.

Moreover, the massive sweet spot and ultra-responsive barrel also help the players enjoy a consistent performance without mishits.


The new 2023 Demarini CF FP softball bat has a highly efficient vibration-dampening system that enables a consistent and comfortable performance without disturbing the softballers’ hands during and after practice.

Also, the in-hand feel of this bat is smooth and grippy, like the 2022 CF. So the players can enjoy their game without sacrificing their comfort.

You can equate the efficiency and performance of Demarini’s CF 2023 with the Demarini Whisper and Easton Ghost Unlimited.

Reasons to consider

The longevity of the new 2023 Demarini CF softball fastpitch bat is strong due to the new Tremor End Cap added to cushion the barrel. It would be great if Demarini improved the durability of this bat up to the level of their new Whisper bat.

Another great thing about this bat is Demarini’s signature in-hand feel.

The CF bat 2023 offers a solid group while maintaining a comfortable feel during swinging.

The performance of the 2022 Demarini CF was outstanding, and the new 2023 successor has also set the bar high for competing batting lines by providing a fabulous performance.

Reasons to avoid

There is no major red flag about this bat. However, we wish it would have come with more considerable upgrades to the 2022 Demarini CF FP softball bat.

The durability of the new Demarini CF Fastpitch softball bat for 2023 is excellent. It is a great alternative to the 2023 DeMarini Prism+.

Value for money

The bat offers an excellent hitting experience to both power and contact hitters.

Also, the price of this bat is considerably less than the Rawlings Mantra+ and same as the 2023 Rawlings Mantra 2.0 which are the closest competitor's to the CF.

So, a bat with excellent performance, effective cost, and high durability is always value for money.
