    Default 2018 L/S LXT vs 2018 Demarini CFX

    Does anyone have some hands on, or DD's hands on experience with the new LXT and new CFX? Trying to get a sense of what real life differences people are finding between the two. Thanks.

    Pick the one that your DD likes the feel of the best. That's the right one. Not much performance difference between the top bats from any manufacturer.

    Both are good bats and you'll find loyalties with both. It really comes down to preference.
    Donít practice until you get it right. Practice until you canít get it wrong.

    Hit with both and let DD pick. I personally like the Demarini but DD liked the LXT.

    DD has used both. Second year 12u. says the end weight of LXT throws off her swing.

    both good bats.

    best as everyone says is your DD needs to swing both because they do feel different even if same size.

    My DD used to complain about the sting of the CF9 but she swung the CFX and liked it. I think that has less to to with the bat than it does her swing maturation.

    Take it for it is worth. My daughter was swinging a 2016, 29-18 LXT. She is now swinging a 2018 Demarini 30-19 CFX. My daughter is definitely hitting the ball farther with the CFX. I don't believe that one bat is better than the other, the reason the ball is going further is because my daughters swing is getting better, the bat is slightly bigger, and my daughter is getting older and bigger.
