Love the bat. Our son...first time up to bat in wood bat league hit it farther and more solid than he hit with aluminum during regular season

Great bat. The handle is slim so if you like a thicker grip you need to get lots of tape. It has a beautiful sound when it makes contact and it has hardly any vibration on your hands.

I feel like the ball bounces off the bat better than a metal bat. My season hasn't started and the weather has been bad here in Chicago, but we did manage one outdoor practice this past weekend. After seeing some guys take there hacks with their wood bats, hacks that were not that good. I was a little worried. It would be my first time using a wood bat. I couldn't believe how the ball jumped off my bat. I hit shot after shot, with about a third going to the warning track. which is good if your only 5'3". I recommend this bat, 5 stars!!!

Used twice but love the way the ball comes off the bat. There is no sting on the handle with bad hits. I did hit a lot of shots out 320 ft to the fence. Need some weight training to get it over.

This bat has been good to me so far and I've hit three dingers in four games since starting to use it. Feels a little heavier than 31 ounces in the 34 inch model because it's end loaded with solid lumber and the composite handle is probably lighter than a standard wood bat. It requires very good hand strength but good results in distance. Power hitters will like this bat. 33 and 32 inch users should like it also but I can't say if the weight feels the same as in the 34. Nice sound, feels solid, and looks good...worth the money if you play in a wood bat league.

FANTASTIC bat. I was apprehensive buying my first composite bat, especially since it costs 3-4 times more than one real wood bat. The performance won me over. I can purposely foul balls off that would have normally broken my regular wood bats. Balls of the end or off the handle cause ZERO damage and I can stay in the box.
Pros: Solid contact
No sting, even on jam shots
Refuses to break, even when jammed or off end
Not exactly the feel or sound of a real wood bat
Chips even easier than real wood if stepped on or clipped on something
Bottom Line: I would recommend to a friend

The DeMarini D243 is the ultimate in wood bat performance. So many people do loads of research of what size and material best performs when it comes to wood bats and composites and this bat is paramount. I've used almost every wood bat available for minor league and adult semi-professional players and this bat takes the cake. I was concerned about the price and swore I would never pay over $50 for a wood bat, nott even a composite. However, after breaking the only bat in my bag in the first inning I resorted to using my teammate's D243. The power and the feel of this bat were unbelievable. This is the choice bat for Rookie ball and Low "A" for it's performance and durability and the fact that it's actually cheaper in the long run than buying multiple regular bats. This bat is such a good performer that it is banned above the low "A" level. That fact in itself tells you that this bat is the ultimate in wood bat performance and gives the hitter their best chance of being successful at the plate.
Pros: 90 day warranty. Excellent "pop." Multiple barrel sizes and weight distributions. Awesome composite build. Long lasting durability.
Bottom Line: I would recommend to a friend

So far so good. Had two hits my first game with it, and two swings that would have broken normal bats, didn't break this one. I hope it continues!
