DeMarini Nihilist Review

The DeMarini Nihilist a limited edition model pulled out by the brand in 2020 especially for slow-pitch softball play in the ASA association. In this case, we are talking about a very special model, with amazing graphics and a one of a kind design straight out of the innovative hands of the D-Lab in the US. For this specific model, the DeMarini team decided to keep some of the most loved characteristics of their successful Flipper bat, and incorporated new technologies in order to achieve greater performance as well as equipping the bat with features to provide more durability and better feel than ever before.

For this mode’s design, the D-Lab decided to include a Continuous Fiber Gapped Wall barrel, this barrel works by allowing the low compression outer wall to work hand-in-hand with the lower compression inner wall, giving you a progressive spring in contact that launches the ball. The Nihilist also incorporates a ZnX alloy handle, this handle gives you the stiffest feel, less flex and increased barrel deflection, made of a combination of zinc and aluminum resulting on a heat-treatable alloy of the highest strength. These two features make this bat hot straight out of the wrapper.

Lastly, this bat incorporates a Big D End Cap, which helps to absorb energy at ball impact, while redirecting it right back into the barrel, creating an increased trampoline effect. The bat also has a strategic end-load weighting, that will help players improve their confidence when hitting the ball, and achieving more powerful, longer and harder hits. The 2020 DeMarini Nihilist is what hardcore experienced players are looking for, with this bat, you will annihilate the competition!
