2016 DeMarini Flipper Aftermath 1.20 Slowpitch Softball Bat USSSA Balanced WTDXFLU-16

A new year brings a new, improved Aftermath 1.20 that's designed to perform day in and day out as DeMarini's top USSSA fire stick. The evolution of the top notch Divergence Composite Technology extends the sweet spot around the 13" barrel, while also maximizing bat control with a stiff ZnX Alloy handle. The ZnX represents a uniting of zinc to aluminum to produce a heat-treatable alloy that significantly increases the material strength and ultimately gives you a stiffer feel and less flex in the taper at the point of impact.

  • Pros: This bat is hitting homeruns write out of the wrapper. It has a nice ergonomic feel to it and hits just as good as some of the more expensive bats on our team. Well worth the price I paid. In fact, I first ordered this bat on Amazon and then decided to read more reviews so I googled the bat and found the EXACT same bat for $50 cheaper on www.cheapbats.com. Very glad I found this site.
  • Cons: 50-75 hits in and haven't found a thing wrong.

  • Pros: This is my first DeMarini bat purchase. I have had two Miken bats in the past. I'm not a homerun hitter and like a balanced bat. This bat has lots of pop and is hitting line drives to the fence right out of the wrapper. Im very pleased with this purchase and look forward to playing with this bat in 2017.
  • Cons: The grip on this bat overlays and is not tapered on the sides so the overlay sticks up. I have a feeling it is going to start curling back after some use. Wish they would have used a grip that was tapered on the sides like my past Mikens.

  • Pros: This bat drops bombs. I've added an additional 75-100 ft to my swing. Starting to break in at about 150 swings.

  • Pros: This bat feels great and is hot out of the wrapper. With only a few dozen swings on it i'm already getting more distance and harder hit balls. This bat crushes u-trip Classic M balls and seems to be hitting 52/300 ASA balls just fine too. The balance is great and the sweet spot is large. It's getting hotter with each swing.
  • Cons: Testing hot right out of the wrapper. It may become too hot to use in leagues that regularly test bats. Not the bat's fault though.

  • Pros: Shipping was really quick. The bat has a very slick appearance, not too loud of a pattern. The pop off of the bat is great. I'm 5' 4" ,140 lbs. and can hit it over a 300' fence.
  • Cons: Probably need batting gloves when it's hot since the grip is a little slippery.

  • Pros: Great bat, good pop. Haven't completely broken in yet, but already pleased with what I see. Service from cheapbats.com was incredible. I originally bought the 27oz, but returned to purchase the 26oz. The process couldn't have been easier. At closeout pricing, you can't beat this bat.
  • Cons: In my opinion this bat does not feel as balanced as other "balanced" bats. There is a hint of end load.

  • Pros: Bought this bat for the girls on our co-ed team and let me tell you we are killing the ball with this thing! My first swing I burnt a guy out in left. I'm in love with the way this bat looks and fells also it's unique I just crushed this ball out of the park sound.

  • Pros: Hot out of the wrapper, with a stiff handle. This bat has the potential to being the best feeling bat I have swung. I've swung a lot of bats and this bat feels great. Great USSSA bat for league play. After swinging this bat the first day out, when I returned home I ordered two more. Three is better than one.
  • Cons: At this point there are no cons. I don't foresee any cons either.

  • Pros: Definitley one of the hottest bats I've ever purchased out of the wrapper. Hits bombs and lines like my old broken in cl stadium and psycho. Have trouble keeping ball Insidethe fence and I'm far from a huge power hitter. Thing will be a monster when broken in.
  • Cons: Grip is pretty cheap but aren't they all.

  • Pros: So far the bat is better than expected. Even lifted a couple into the outfield for base hits when I put a bad swing on it and hit the ball off the handle. I'm not a home run hitter, I live off of right-center field singles and doubles. The bat has good pop even for me - straight out of the wrapper.
  • Cons: None so far

  • How would this bat fair against DeBeer Clincher softballs?
  • Asked by Jay
  • The Flipper will not perform as well as an alloy bat such as the Mayhem, Raw Steel, or Ultimate Weapon. The best bat made for the Clincher balls will be the new Windy City bat by DeMarini.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • I was wondering of thos bat will hot 52 275 balls. Lile the asa version? Orwill it be a dud with them.
  • Asked by Southpaw
  • The Flipper Aftermath 1.20 is made for the harder balls such as the .44 375 balls. We do not have any reviews on this bat hitting the softer balls unfortunately.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • So with the bat being a closeout deal is there still warranty and return options. If it's damaged or cracks?
  • Asked by Keith
  • This bat does still come with a one year manufacturer's warranty.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • How will this bat hold up to 44/375 balls?
  • Asked by mark
  • This is a USSSA sanctioned bat and made for the 44/375 ball.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • I am simply curious why the FLU-16 is $40 cheaper than the FLU-15? IS the 2015 model seemingly a better bat?
  • Asked by JC
  • We were able to obtain the WTDXFLU-16 at a cheaper closeout price from DeMarini than we were able to obtain the WTDXFLU-15.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Love the FLS15 Demarini Flipper half & half bat 34" 26oz, but it appears it is discontinued. Does the FLU-16 have the same or similar characteristics to the FLS15 or should I go to the FLS16? Thank you for your time, Semper Fi!
  • Asked by Jack
  • The FLU will not be ASA approved and the FLS will not be USSSA approved. If you need ASA approval you would need the WTDXFLS-16 and if you need USSSA or NSA approval you will need the WTDXFLU-16.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • We use .47/375 balls. How will this bat work with these balls? Others you may recommend?
  • Asked by bambino
  • This bat is made for the .47/375 balls. Any USSSA approved bat will be made for these types of balls.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Is this the same bat as last year with new graphics or has it been redesigned?
  • Asked by Rich
  • The 2016 DeMarini Flipper Aftermath uses the ZnX alloy for the handle while the 2015 model uses the SC4 alloy. That and the graphics are the major change in the Aftermath.
