Top 10 Demarini Slowpitch Softball Bats 2016
Finding the right slowpitch softball bat and brand is the key to getting big hits in a softball league. It is important to know that although a softball and a baseball bat look the same, you cannot use a softball bat to play baseball or use the baseball bat to play softball. There is a noticeable difference between the two in terms of length, weight and barrel diameters. These features directly influence the bat swing speed. Slowpitch bats are designed to hit slugging softballs at 25 mph.
Below find the top 10 Demarini slowpitch softball bats
2016 Juggy Og
This bat has a 2.25” barrel diameter and 12” stacked composite barrel length. This ASA certified bat provides a strong, lightweight hitting zone and a two piece feel. With the composite bat, the ball can be hit much harder and reach farther distances. Usually, composite bats have graphite and carbon fibers. The DeMarini Juggy Og was born to go deep. The endloaded triple wall barrel provides a springboard surface. The length of the barrel provides a strong hitting zone. Powerful hitters prefer an endloaded softball bat because it increases the contact with the ball and add about 10 to 30 feet to the distance of the hit. With its stacked composite design, it gives players the power they demand when they get to the plate. With the TR3 F.L.O. composite handle, the energy is focused on the sweetspot. This results in more power and faster bat speed. The Big D End Cap has been designed to increase the endload with the stiff end cap. This feature makes the softball bat a beast.

This bat is USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF certified and uses an endloaded S. One Composite Barrel, which is generally recognized to have a little more pop. This composite feature gives a trampoline advantage due to its more elastic properties and stiffness along the length of the bat. Composite bats are created for a targeted trampoline effect. It also optimizes bending stiffness and minimizes stinging sensation. Endloaded bats have extra mass at the end of the barrel so it can increase the bat’s distance capabilities to deliver maximum performance and power. The Big D End Cap increases the endload and helps maintain power in the sweetspot. It contains energy and works with the ZnX Alloy handle for less flex at the taper and more deflect so can increase the overall barrel performance at the point of impact. The ZnX Alloy increases the bat’s stiffness and durability. The combination of the zinc and aluminum results in a heat treatable alloy that increases material strength and makes the 2016 CL22 a special bat to get.
