We set out to build a bat that would stand up to changing conditions and give players the same feel of hitting in a game, in practice, off a tee, or live pitching. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Meet the 2019 Prism Fastpitch Bat.

TABS

Every player experiences different pitch speeds and swing speeds depending on the situation or game conditions.

We wanted a bat that would stand up to changing conditions and give players the same feel of hitting in a game, in practice, off a tee, or live pitching. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

D-LAB’s mission was to design a fastpitch bat that would maximize ball exit speed across a wider range of swing speeds and incoming ball velocities.

We knew in order to deliver a bat that maintained consistent outgoing launch speed regardless of conditions, we needed to do things differently--starting at the core. We decided to leverage our experience with gapped barrel bats - a technology pioneered by DeMarini. Through relentless play-testing, D-LAB fine-tuned the design to create a progressive barrel which optimizes performance for all players from beginners through elite.

The Prism uses the DeMarini Doublewall(™) Gapped barrel technology that combines an inner and outer barrel which work together to expand the sweet spot and maximize performance across the barrel. Additionally, the two barrels interact like a progressive spring on contact to calibrate performance to the skill level of individual players.

After creating, testing, and tweaking over 196 iterations, every player’s feedback began to sound the same:

“It’s a totally new hitting experience with the same performance people expect out of a DeMarini bat.”

“There’s something about this bat… it feels just as good off a tee as it does in a game .”

The Prism was ready for launch.

Through extensive internal play-testing, D-LAB tested numerous leading fastpitch bats to gauge the ball distance versus exit velocity. The conclusion is that the Prism outpaced two of the most popular bats in the market at low and high speeds. We had accomplished what we set out to do.

D-LAB relied on fastpitch player feedback to create a bat that is completely unique to the sport. The outer wall works seamlessly with the inner wall to create a progressive spring on contact that launches the ball. In addition to the performance gains, Doublewall(™) Gapped Barrel technology also gives the Prism its distinct sound. Finally, the 3Fusion system keeps the energy in the barrel and the sting out of your hands.

No matter what the situation, the Prism harnesses your power...EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

CREATED FOR CHAOS

CREATED FOR CHAOS


Continuous Fiber Wall
The Prism has one sheet of super strong composite rolled into itself to create a lighter barrel with no excess, no breaks, and unbelievable power.
3FUSION SYSTEM
The streamlined design allows for greater weight control and feel while continuing to reduce vibration and redirect energy back into the barrel.
Doublewall™ Barrel
The outer composite of the barrel works in tandem with the inner wall to give the bat an extra spring-loaded bang on contact – with each part providing an individual pop that, when combined, spells destruction for the ball.
