2017 DeMarini CF Insane Review

The DeMarini CF Insane is a great baseball bat for the right type of athlete. During this DeMarini CF Insane Review, I will go into who this baseball bat is best for and some of its attributes to help you consider if this is the right bat for you or if you should keep looking (check out top BBCOR Bats here). Just because a baseball bat is made of high-technology and gets high marks, doesn't mean it is for every hitter.

The “CF Insane” tends to work the best and give the highest grade of performance to the more advanced hitter who is stronger. This bat was created from DeMarini's expertise and years of hard work in creating a composite bat made of two-pieces. Due to their advance experience, the “CF Insane” is a two-piece, composite baseball bat. This bat has a buttery feel; even more so than the last couple of years have been. This also includes bats manufactured by other companies as well. Any hitter who is considered advanced at hitting or what is called a “big hitter” who doesn't have issues with the speed of their bat and have a preference for smooth, calm bat swings – even during a miss-hit, will automatically fall head over heels for the DeMarini's CF Insane Baseball Bat.

Where to buy the DeMarini CF Insane?

Lots of companies offer the DeMarini Insane, but our research showed that this older model bat can be found on eBay for the best price. If you want a confirmed warranty make sure you confirm with the eBay seller that they offer a real receipt.

The 2017 DeMarini's CF Insane: How Is It Made?

DeMarini is fairly new to the scene of end-loaded, composite, two-piece baseball bats. The release of the 2017 DeMarini CF Insane came as a shock to a lot of people (click here to see Best BBCOR Bats of 2017). This end-loaded baseball bat is created around the same specifications as the 2016 DeMarini CF8.

The 2017 DeMarini's CF Insane Features:

  • The bat will feature a handle that is tapered.
  • This bat will feature the same over-sized barrel as was available on the DeMarini CF8.
  • The bat will feature a stronger composite, which is known as, Paraflex Composite to assist in molding the barrel.
  • This bat will be manufactured using the D-Fusion 2.0 Handle as was also used with the 2016 DeMarini CF8.
  • This bat features a new end-load, which is completely differently from the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen model.

The 2017 DeMarini CF Insane Vs. Comparable Baseball Bats:

Due to the high-technology that is in play in creating the CF Insane, there is only one other baseball bat on the market today that stands tall next to it. The Easton MAKO XL sits quite equal and proud beside the CF Insane. Both are top of the line baseball bats and both are by seasoned, reputable companies that have been around the block many times and definitely know what they are doing when it comes to manufacturing the best baseball bats possible. Both of these companies have experience with the composite, two-piece bats; which experience is something you definitely want on your side when purchasing an item such as sporting equipment. The CF Insane and the Easton MAKO XL both have the highest peak performance available at varying pitch speeds as well as along the barrel length.

Both of these professional-grade bats are amazing and boast that theirs is the best. Truth be told, both are equipped with a smooth composite barrel and huge sweet spots. As I said, they both will boast about which is better but in my opinion, you can't go wrong either way. It would come down to a personal choice for which is best for you and your game. Easton lays claim that theirs has a bigger barrel while DeMarini lay claim that theirs allows for more production along the barrel length. In all actuality, neither outranks the other in high-performance. The only modification that I believe makes the CF Insane a bit above the Easton MAKO XL is the fact that you are able to do bat customization, which is not the case on the Easton MAKO XL.
