DeMarini Swing Chute Trainer

I have been trying to buy a DeMarini Swing Chute Trainer, but can't seem to find any online sales website. Is there anybody out there that can tell me where I can purchase one?

Thanks

I looked at Eastbay. I saw Demarini shirts, bats, bat bags and other items. However I did not see any bat parachute.

Thanks for the info. I see it but I'm getting the website "run around" trying to order it. Guess I'll have to call them.

Also has anybody out there used the Markwort Bat Fins?
Are they worth the money?
I heard the fins slip off the end of the bat's barrel, is that true?

Thanks for the info....why is slightly as good as Demarini?

I wonder why the Demarini chute is getting so rare these days?

They were great for pre-game warm up swings and easily packed into a bat bag.

The one I have needs to be replaced because the chute material is wearing out. The 4 chute attachment ribbons keep breaking. I've sewed and glued them together but they don't last very long.

Thank you for your help. I went to salesspider which transferred me to esports.com which is the same web that gives me the "run around" when I try to order. I looked on their web search and they don't have it. Getting the Chute has become a real challenge.

Full Monty,
your welcome..Rawlings breaks down a bit quicker than the Demar's.. I been shopping for the Demar's version for the last years.. and could not find it, looks like Wilson sports is walking away from Ray's crazed training philosophies..? LOL!!

I noticed the picture on the esports web shows the DeMo Chute in the original colors of Yellow and White. If I remember correctly the Yellow/White chutes were first chutes sold by the DeMarini company. I think that Chute was sold with a instructional video on a (You youngsters may not remember this) VHS video tape. The whole package sold for about $75. I got mine as a gift so I'm not real sure of the price.

The Blue and White chute replaced the Yellow/White chute a few years later.

UPDATE


I talked to Bats Unlimited this morning.

They do not sell the DeMarini Chute.

And they are refunding my order.

So the search for the DeMarini Chute continues.....

Full Monty - just make yourself a chute.
You may even sell it to some others on this site.

I don't have the materials, equipment or skills to make one as good as the DeMarini chute.

A DeMarini Factory Hitter friend of mine named Rick Damon practiced for hundreds of hours with one of these DeMarini hitting tools....

Now after Rick takes a cut, most of his team mates say Chute....

I have never used the Rawlings Model Chute, so I don't know much about them.

From the info I got, the Rawlings Model is not near as good as the DeMarini chute. Check out the above post on this thread by SALSAKID49

If anybody out there has any experience or info on the Rawlings Chute, please post....Thank you
