2024 DeMarini Nautalai Midload USSSA Slowpitch Bat Review

The Nautalai line-up from DeMarini has been growing in popularity in recent years, and the new version has just been released. A colorful addition to the line-up, the new Nautilai is to deliver some power. 



The DeMarini Nautalai USSSA slowpitch bat is a high-performance softball bat designed for players participating in USSSA (United States Specialty Sports Association) sanctioned leagues and tournaments. This bat is specifically engineered to deliver power, balance, and exceptional performance on the field.

Features & Construction

When comparing this new model to the last year’s one, the most obvious difference is the barrel length. 2023 models, like the Jason Magnum Special, had a 12″ barrel, but the new model has a bigger, 13.5″ mid-load barrel. This means that the bat is much more forgiving and also gives more power to the hitter. In terms of materials, the same Continuous Fiber is used in the 2024 model, and why change it?; it just works great. The Continuous Fiber construction ensures a consistent and responsive barrel performance throughout its length, maximizing the trampoline effect upon contact with the ball. This results in increased ball exit velocity and greater hitting distance, which is crucial for a power hitter. The ZnX alloy handle gives the bat a stiff feel, which is a different technological direction compared to the 2023 Miken DC-41, which has carbon layering on the handle to increase speed.


Stiff feel and power are the names of the game with the 2023 DeMarini Nautailai. If you’ve ever swung a 2023 Nautailai, you will most certainly appreciate the bigger barrel, plus the pop that this bat has is right up there with the best of them.

Overall, the 2024 model and all DeMarini Nautalai USSSA slowpitch bats in general are renowned for their outstanding performance. They deliver exceptional power, solid hitting distances, and reliable performance on the field.



With the 2024 model, DeMarini has opted to go for a vibrant colorway, which is very different compared to the different signature editions for 2023. While we’ve always said that the looks of the bat are a personal preference, there are very few bats on the market that have a design this colorful.
