DeMarini makes amazing, high quality fastpitch bats and these two are no exception. Both the CF Zen and the FNX Rising perform amazing on the field. Both are very light and balanced, both have great feel and both look great. But, there is one big difference between these two bats. The CF Zen is made for contact hitters and the FNX Rising is made for power hitters.
Both are top of the line in their divisions, so the decision on which one to purchase is entirely up to your playing style and preferences. If you are a contact hitter, you will prefer the light swings and precision that the new CF Zen has, and if you are a power hitter, you will prefer the stiff feel and power of the DeMarini FNX.
You can’t go wrong with any of these two, because, as we said earlier, they both are high performing, top of the notch fastpitch bats from a great company, DeMarini.
