Introduced in 2012, the Axe handle is hailed as a breakthrough by players and coaches from youth leagues to the pros. Designed based on the shape of an ax handle, the patented Axe handle gives you an ergonomic fit that delivers better performance and comfort. Every part of the shape was analyzed and tested by our development team, resulting in an Axe handle that gives you the best fit, while providing better swing leverage, control, and freedom through release than the traditional round knob.
Baden developed Plus-Plus™ Composite Technology specifically for the Axe Avenge line of composite fastpitch and slowpitch bats. Using the lightest, more durable carbon fiber on the market, we've reinforced the hitting side to meet our durability standards for one-sided hitting. Plus-Plus™ makes it possible for hitters to have composite barrel performance with the Axe handle. The Axe Avenge line delivers optimum balance, super-fast swing speeds, and above all, barrel performance that surpasses the competition.
The Axe handle delivers benefits beyond the grip – it allows our engineers to hone in on the hitting side of the bat. Axe bats are unique in that they have an engineered hitting zone, where we optimize everything – balance, sweet spot, barrel performance, and durability – for your contact point.
“If you want to crush it, you need leverage, bat speed, and barrel performance. The Axe delivers. I’ve never swung a better bat.” ~ Brandon MurraySuper Major Slow Pitch Softball Star, 6-time All World, Member of the Long Haul Bombers Tour
"The Axe bat is a game changer. The handle allows your hands to explode through the zone, keeping the bat on plane through the ball. The barrel has great feel and a gigantic sweet spot. If you want to take your game to the next level, the Axe is your chance.” ~ Jonathan ScottMajor Slow Pitch Softball Star of the Headhunters, 2011 Home Run Champion of the Smokey Mountain Classic
