  • Pros: Not big in stature so have always been a line drive hitter. Second game I used this bat I smacked two off the fence and one over for my first out of the park home run! Fence at our field is 290 ft. w/18 ft high fence. So whats not to like about this bat. BTW, I am 65 years old!
  • Cons: So far not a one.

  • Pros: This is a super bat and ready the minute you open the box without any break in. Perfect for both line drive hitters and home run kings. Pitcher mounds will become launch pads with the solid feel of each swing. As a long ball hitter when home run limit is reached this bat easily makes line drives easy. Seriously, this bat does it all and is one of the best bats I have ever used!!!
  • Cons: Everyone wants to use it!!!

  • Pros: this bat is hot out of the wrapper no doubt. i love this bat. feels great.
  • Cons: despite every review i can find this bat will not last. had it about 5 months and it was destroyed. sent it back for warranty with zero questions or problems. got my replacement in under a week. first hit with the new one produced a noticeable rattle. now three weeks in and another crack. very disappointed. that being said i will likely buy another one.

  • Pros: Hello, I have never really had the desire to ever write a review on any product I have purchased even all the bats I have purchased over the years. However I must write a review on the 2016 DeMarini Flipper! This is an amazing bat!! I have never purchased an " end loaded " bat before and I tell you I wont by any other kind than the DeMarini now. I have stepped down from "A" league ball now for a couple of years and now play on our local rec league with a bunch of great guys. However I would say at least 7 out of 12 of the guys are challenged with their hitting and the rest of us need to stop popping out. I purchased the at a great price from " Cheap Bats.Com" and with rapid shipping and great customer service! The bat showed up the day of the game and we CRUSHED it ! Every guy on the team batted over 500 that night. the challenged guys were amazing and the rest of us were either putting it over the fence or ending up on 2nd or 3rd. Great job Demarini and great job Cheap Bats for having it at a great price with excellent service! I'll be back to purchase from you again ! Thank you, Brian
  • Cons: Absolutely none to speak of !

  • Pros: This bat is stupid hot! I have always loved having a Flipper when hitting 52/300 balls! This bat makes it feel like you are hitting 44/375's! The end load on this bat is perfect and definitely helps with hitting dingers! I always keep one of these in my bag and a juggy because I don't like using this bat on 44/375 because its so thin walled it'll break much faster. Although on 52's this bat will last you a very long time! Absolutely lethal bat that I will use for many years! Thank you Demarini and Cheap Bats
  • Cons: Breaks easily with 44/375 balls so I would recommend only using on 52/300's

  • Pros: This bat has awesome pop and distance right out of the wrapper. Feels great. The new demarini grip is awesome also. Cheapbats is a great company to deal with. Plan on buying plenty of bats of them in the future. Got the bat at an amazing price.
  • Cons: None so far.

  • Pros: The feel is great. Claims to be an end load, but feels balanced. Lots of POP. Love the bat. Been playing softball for 30 years and this is no doubt the nicest bat I've owned. Probably going to buy a replacement, while they're still available, in case mine breaks.
  • Cons: My bat seems to have held up well, but guys I know say after a while some cracks appear on the surface.

  • Pros: DeMarini Flipper is supposed to be one of the top ASA bats for 52/300 balls. Had it for two weeks and so far so good. Bat took about 150 hits before it started to open up. If it continues to get hotter over the next 150 hits it will be an amazing bat. Also the fact that you can get this 2016 version at a big discount is great. Don't hesitate, BUY IT NOW.
  • Cons: None at this time. I hope the durability is good. Some of the newer DeMarini's (Juggy, The One) have issues passing compression testing once they get really hot. Haven't heard this about the Flipper and if your league/tourney doesn't compression test, you have no worries.

  • Pros: The bat is a great swing. Being end loaded you can really feel that as it is traveling through thenhitting zone! Great sound off the bat. Pop is good getting better with every swing. I'm not saying it needed broke in at all just saying that it just gets better.
  • Cons: The grip is a little slick. But I wouldn't really call this a con since it can be changed. Just would have been nice to have a better grip from the manufacturer.

  • Cons: Right now I have none!!!! It comes with a nice grip has a great feel to it, doesn't sting your hands when you hit the end of the bat. It hits bombs!! What more could you ask for???

  • Pros: If you like the feel of an end-loaded bat, you simply cannot go wrong with this one. This is a great bat for a seasoned tournament player, a shared team bat, or a bat for someone just starting out. I was swinging the 2015 Demarini CL22 Cluggy before this, and this bat hits harder fresh out of the wrapper. I anticipate it getting better and better once it breaks in.
  • Cons: Very little to complain about with this bat. The only possible drawback I can think of is that it will take a little bit to break in the bat fully, but it's HOT right out of the wrapper.

  • Pros: Quick Turnaround - did 2 day shipping; bat arrived to my destination in Iowa less than 36 hours from when the order was placed. Order process was efficient and quick. Now on to the bat.... this thing is absolutely great. Came out of the wrapper with balls jumping off the barrel. I can only imagine what will happen as it continues to get broken in. Started off my first night 4/4 with 2 HR's (approx. 320 ft which is a long ways for me). Overall, ecstatic about this purchase at a great purchase.

  • Pros: Hot right out the wrapper. Went to break it in a little on a 295' field. On a tee I put the first 5 to the fence with the next 3 going over. Used in game the next day and it didn't disappoint. 4 at bats 2 homers and 2 off the top of the fence. Even the miss hits were bombs. Great bat, wouldn't trade it for the world. Paint scheme is awesome, everybody was asking about it all day.
  • Cons: The .6mm grip isn't enough. Switched put for lizard grip 1.1mm and bat is perfect now.

  • If I need to return the bat how long would I have to do so, and how would I return it?
  • Asked by Josh
  • Hi Josh. Please see our returns page.
  • Answered by Mike (Customer Service)
  • Hi, I just bought this bat for our ASA league and we use .44/375. Is there any risk of damaging the bat if I use it on these type of softballs?
  • Asked by Phil
  • Yes, All ASA bats are manufactured for the softer balls, .52/300 or .52/275 balls. The harder balls do risk damaging your ASA bat.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Looking to purchase this flipper or the juggy og.. I have watched and read countless videos and reviews. What bat would you say has mlre pop? Or are they both equally matched? Thanks.
  • Asked by Josh
  • Both the Flipper Aftermath and the Juggy OG will be equally matched. It comes down to bat preference.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • If I swing a 28oz in your blue 2016 flipper should I stay 28oz when I buy this red end loaded bat or go down an ounce??
  • Asked by Seano
  • It all depends on what your prefer. The bat will have an extra ounce at the end of the barrel to make it top heavy. If you prefer a heavier bat go with a 28oz. and if you prefer to feel something lighter we recommend switching to the 27oz.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • What's the end load on the bat? -1, -2, -3?
  • Asked by Dusty
  • DeMarini does not specify their end load on this bat, but it is estimated to be a 1 oz. end load.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • is this bat made for the 47/375 ball?
  • Asked by Bud
  • This bat is made for the .52/ 300 ball. All ASA bats will be made for the new ASA standard ball of .52/300lb
