The 2022 Demarini ZOA -8 USSSA baseball bat is Demarini's new flagship -8 USSSA baseball bat model. End all be all, this is a stiffer Zen. This model will tend to be better suited for stronger kids as there is reduced flex in the handle. Bat has unbelievable pop shaved and rolled, HOWEVER, these products do have durability issues especially for stronger kids with decent bat speed.
** WARNING -- For those with a good amount of bat speed and power, it is suggested NOT to shave this bat, however, average power kids can break these bats as well. Also, any kid swinging these in 31 or 32 inch, can break these bats in swings, especially if shaved. If you do opt for the shave, we would NOT go past the level 1 shave option if you want any chance of the bat holding up. These bats do have iffy durability even in stock form, but they are scary hot performance wise. **
