DeMarini CF Balanced 2-5/8" BBCOR Bat -3oz (2017)
MAD MAX says:
The C9 ZEN Balanced is poised to do big things this year. The CF8 was a big player and CF9 will be one as well. We are talking about a two-piece, all-composite bat with a nice balanced weight to it. DeMarini uses their top-notch composite in the CF9 to create a durable and high-performing bat. DeMarini uses a new composite for a bat with a bit more POP and durability. The CF9 will come in a Balanced version, which comes with a red grip and an INSANE one with a black grip. The balanced version will come in the following sizes: 30, 31, 32, 33 and 34. The INSANE will start at 32, meaning it would not be recommended for someone that is on the smaller side. The balanced one will be better for a younger player. DeMarini nailed the Zen this year.

DeMarini CF Balanced BBCOR Bat -3oz WTDXCBC-17 (2017)
BBCOR Certified Baseball Bat
The BBCOR formula provides a better measure of the bat's performance and therefore allows the rules committee and bat testing laboratories to better predict field performance based on lab tests. The goal is that non-wood bats that meet this new standard will perform similarly to wood bats. All BBCOR bats will incorporate a logo mark once certification approval is granted. This mark will be consistent across every approved bat design so umpires will easily identify approved bats.
