4 DeMarini Softball Bats You Can’t Miss
Softball players - both fastpitch and slowpitch softball players - exact serious demands from their gear. You want the best-polarized sunglasses to cut glare and provide superior color contrast. You want a pair of turf shoes that are breathable, light, and comfortable while providing next-level traction, even on wet ground. You want a glove that has 80% factory break-in - but still protects your hand.
Softball bats are in the spotlight perhaps more than any of these other pieces of equipment. Players can be downright religious about the bats they use, or about their brand loyalty. Among some of the key players in this arena is DeMarini; it goes without saying that DeMarini softball bats are some of the highest-performing hitters out there.
Here are four DeMarini softball bats - two slowpitch and two fastpitch bats, some of which are new for this year - that you’ll want to take a look at if you’re in the market for a new bat this upcoming season. Don’t let them slip past your notice!
2022 DeMarini Dale Brungardt USSSA Slowpitch Softball Bat
New for this year, the 2022 DeMarini Dale Brungardt USSSA Slowpitch Softball Bat is set to make waves. It’s 34 inches long and its weight drop will vary according to the weight you choose; weight ranges from 24 to 28 ounces on the end-loaded side of the spectrum.
Speaking of which, with a 12-inch barrel and end-loaded swing weighting, it’s a bat that power hitters are going to love. Its continuous fiber barrel is paired to a ZnX Alloy Handle which means a couple of things. One is that the handle is much stiffer and more durable; this enables the bat to provide greater feedback and it also allows the batter to exhibit greater control through the swing. Match that with the bat’s endload and you have a real performance hitter.
2022 DeMarini Nihilist OG USA/ASA Slowpitch Softball Bat
Also new for this year is the 2022 DeMarini Nihilist OG USA/ASA Slowpitch Softball Bat. Like the new DB DeMarini, this bat is loaded out with features that eager players will lap right up.
This bat is also 34 inches but its weight only varies between 26 and 28 ounces; it has less variance in weight drop and it skews toward the end-loaded side of the spectrum. It’s another bat that power hitters will love.
Like the DB, the 2022 DeMarini Nihilist OG also has a ZnX Alloy Handle for superior stiffness and a continuous fiber barrel wall for added durability. What it has in addition to these features is a gapped barrel wall; this enables much better compression, trampoline effect, and pop. you won’t believe the hits you can master with this bat when you’ve introduced the sweet spot to a pitch.
2021 DeMarini Prism Fastpitch Softball Bat
This fastpitch softball bat ranges between 31 to 34 inches and between weights of 21 to 24 ounces. It’s much more balanced than the slowpitch bats previously explored; precision-hitters and tack-drivers alike will adore this bat.
The 2021 DeMarini Prism Fastpitch Softball Bat is also made with a suite of technologically advanced features that have become a hallmark of DeMarini softball bats. Like many other DeMarini bats, it makes the most of continuous fiber barrel technology for durability and toughness; this bat also has a two-piece design that utilizes a Type V connection that increases both strength and performance.
With DoubleWallTM Gapped Barrel Technology and superior sensitivity, this bat offers three specific traits that change the game for precision hitters. It offers excellent barrel compression, provides great feedback, and is perfectly balanced.
2021 DeMarini FNX Fastpitch Softball Bat
The 2021 DeMarini FNX Fastpitch Softball Bat ranges between 31 and 34 inches and between 21 and 24 ounces, for excellent swing balance. Like the other DeMarini fastpitch bat we mentioned, this is a bat that precision hitters will grow to love if they don’t love it already.
This bat, like many other DeMarini bats, makes use of continuous fiber barrel technology, made from a single rolled sheet of super-strong composite. This results in a barrel that is lighter, stronger, and most importantly, better able to deliver a massive sweet spot into the hands of a batter.
This bat is made with what DeMarini calls a direct connection handle that is stiffer and provides for excellent energy transfer; it looks like there are some features that both power and precision hitters can love about this bat!
