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)
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.
At Closeout Bats we stock what we sell! We have a huge warehouse and are NOT drop shipping bats like many web sites. We update inventory and availability on the Web site several times a day as inventory positions change shipping hundreds and hundeds of bats. We also sell bats out of our physical store, so sometimes things sell out before we can get them off the Web site.
Limited quantities available. Prices subject to change without notice. Like we say, if it's on the site, it's in the warehouse -- just SOMETIMES it might have some other player's name on it! If you snooze, you lose, so ORDER YOURS NOW!
