The handle of the Dinger Slinger is designed from ZnX Alloy. This means less flex in the handle, which allows the Divergence Barrel design of the bat to perform up to its full potential so you can hit the ball into the stands.

This bat is also designed with a Paraflex composite barrel, taking this DeMarini bat to the next level in terms of durability and lasting power. In fact, this material is a whole 22% stronger than previous materials used by DeMarini on other bat series. This Paraflex barrel also provides great pop.

What Customers Are Saying:

I definitely like the tip weight rather than the balanced weight, you just have to be prepared to adjust a little bit. I love this brand, definitely worth the price tag.
Great bat for the money. It passed inspection for my league and has great pop once you work it in. Sweet spot is fairly small and takes some getting used to, even compared to other end loaded bats. Other commenters have mentioned that it feels a lot heavier than similar weight bats when swinging, I agree with that. I also use an Easton end loaded 27oz and this bat feels much heavier while swinging. The grip is really thin and sucks, I wear grippy batting gloves and actually shifted the entire grip after half a season of use. I was holding aluminum in some areas before i replaced the grip with a lizard skin grip. But other than that I really like this bat.
