DeMARINI 2014 S243 Pro Maple Wood BBCOR Composite Bats
Broke after 3 at bats
I purchased a couple of these bats for my varsity team. The 32" bats knob broke completely off after 3-5 at bats. We were running an intersquad scrimmage and one of the kids in the middle of the order in the first inning had the knob brake clean off. I dont know if this is something common with all bats or just Demarini but over the past couple years I have seen several Demarini bats have the knob broken off both wood and aluminum. I have never seen one break on the first day of use. I ordered these for 2 weekends of preseason wood bat tournaments but Demarini/Wilson will not do anything to get a warranty bat back until after the tournaments and it will basically be useless for the high school team this year. This has nothing to do with baseball savings as it is a manufacture warranty.
