Default DeMarini bats

Anyone here have problems with DeMarini standing by their year warrenty?
They are messing me over. Their bat broke within the first year of purchase. I sent it back. They would only replace it with a bat that I canít use in any of the 3 leagues I play in. I gave them 3 options: Replace the bat with the same model, go buy one at a store and ship it to me (they said it was out of stock, but itís in the local stores)/give me a voucher to go get it myself or refund me money. Well they did none of these. They DO NOT honor their warranty!
Any good advice would be appreciated.

What did you break? What was the replacement?

Sorry for your trouble OP........See post #2

I have returned 10 + bats to Demarini w/o issue. they are always very accomodating. Dont be demanding...you probably wont get anything you want.
Here is an idea.................. take the return they give you and sell it. Take that money and buy what you want.
Also, bro, they did honor the warranty. Read your lil card that came with the bat.

Good luck

I broke a 2014 White Steel bat. They wanted to give me 2 Ultimates or 2015 SF7 a Seniors double walled. I told hem I can't use a double wall in any of the leagues I play and 2 cheap bats (Ultimate) aren't worth anything to me.

oilslick58- thought about that but I can't find anyone who can use the double wall bat that they sent me without telling me. The warrenty is what I'm trying to get a replacement for, so they haven't honored it to date. I also told they could just send me the money back. I have several team mates who have gotten replacement bats in the past but none within the last 2 years.

Did you try listing it on EBay?

I thought about it but I don't use EBay. It's also more of an ethical thing to me. "D" should honor their warrenty.
