Oh man I can't wait for it to come out! The rumors are true
I'll take the bait. Have never swung a demarini but will give the cartel 2 a shot. Whats the word?
Hope it's the same bat w/new stamp. I'll buy 4 of them.
How much flex does the cartel have? also how stiff is the barrell? I gave my st100h to my wife is was wayyy too soft.
I wish I could post a pic of it but it will be taken down quick....
Its on facebook...
It was up yesterday but some people went over board with it....
As long as it isn't mentioned where to get it at I'll allow this thread. One word of where to purchase it and I'll remove this thread.
Oh I see.... I don't have a Facebook so I wouldn't know. Does anyone know the release date?
Mid-Dec to early Jan

The pics of the bat look pretty cool too I am just wondering if the performance of the bat is going to be the same. The durability was not the best but man did that thing get nasty when broken in.
Durability will be better on this one...
Man DeMarini set the world on fire yesterday with this news. I kinda wish it wasn't a exclusive tho because the asking price is far to high so I'll be passing on this one. Factory Hitters won't even be getting these unless they have a deal worked out with that other place. So this is as exclusive as it gets.
Good lookin' stick
Great looking bat, if the performance equals or surpasses the other one, it will be highly sought after.
If the Durability is better it's not the same bat. The S.One Durability is better and it's getting just as hot. If this holds true, why would anyone want a Cartel 2 over the S.One?
The Cartel was the best bat Demarini has made in ages for UTrip. If this was the same bat with the new stamp they'd be releasing it everywhere and selling all they could make. Some people might like the Stadium or other things better, but for mass appeal nothing they've had touches the Cartel.
Cartel and an OG stadium w/2k+ cuts are the best bats I've swung in years.
Way too overpriced for my liking
Am I the only one who thinks it's just a spec1 with different paint?
I can kind of agree with this but the RD28U is just flat out ridiculous.
I doubt you are.............
saint you best not be going thru my pms sucka.
Totally agree with this, found out about pricing and decided that I am going to have to pass on it.
Nothing touches my RD28U and I've owned OTCs, Juices, Stadiums, J2Us, Spec 1s and Cartels...
There is a debate if this is a reissue or a repainted Spec 1...
every single exclusive or canadian market bat released has been accused of being a repaint, and not one of them has been yet.
if demarini can afford to make limited runs(like the RD) of unique bats, there's no reason why you shouldn't expect this to be a different bat from what's out there too.
I know we're just talking about Canada, but you realize the country is bigger than a single store, right?
Hey guys here is some nitty gritty on the bat from DeMarini:
The Cartel 2 is a Special Make Up (SMU) model that is exclusive to a company. This is a USSSA model that will feature a 4.ONE barrel & handle configuration. The Cartel 2 will be available in 26, 27, 28 & 30 oz weight options.
This model will be available the first week of January through The exclusive company and slowpitch dealers that The company selects to help distribute their model.
I thought no 30ozers were being made
which proves it is not a repaint, because the stadium 2 has a SC4 aluminum handle, not a 4.ONE handle like the CL22 & cartel
Fact!!!! That's why I bolded and underlined it!!!!
I seeent what you did
I thought the og cartel had sc4 alloy handle also. 4.One handle and barrel are cl22 and utrip one.
The cartel definitely has an alloy handle
well i be damned, it did (googled myself)
so it's a utrip one repaint..oh noes
I like the og cartel that would peel and crack fast. that thing was super hot. the new one series bats dont feel good to me. the response isnt for my swing. maybe for big boys that crush the ball. Just make me a new legend or give me the option to buy a full production line of them and make it jpg exclusive.
It will be more durable than the OG Cartel... but most other Demarini Bats are.
To me it didn't seem to have that much flex. Didn't fele like any of the other demarinis I had swung. It was actually a little stiffer than a mutant. If I had to compare it with any bat it woul dbe the og duo. I didn't notice any flex except a couple that come off near the endcap. Barrel also felt pretty stiff
You know where to purchase it right. At a store
Definitely digging the lime green. The og cartel is the best looking bat demarini has come EVER come out with.
For some reason i loved the handle. I would sit there before the game flicking it with my finger nail listening to the sound it would make.
