The 2017 DeMarini Uprising fastpitch softball bat is brand new on the market, but we feel that it will get the attention it deserves. This is an excellent quality alloy bat at a great price. The lighter feel can be great for young players to achieve faster swing speeds, and with DeMarini technology there’s no sting or vibration, a common problem of many one piece alloy bats. You can use this bat as a back up bat or for playing at cold weather.  The manufacturer also boasts their R&D team rigorous testing, and guarantees perfect balance of performance and durability. We recommend that  you give this bat a try, especially if you are a fan of DeMarini fastpitch bats.
