AHEAD OF THE GAME
Axe is an entirely new concept for bats, built on the fact that the old, round knob does not help the hitter. The patented Axe handle puts the bat in your fingertips for a consistent swing plane and a freer release.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE AXE
We build Axe bats with barrels and features that are second-to-none. Larry Carlson, Baden's Director of R&D and 28 year veteran in bat technologies, explains more in this series of videos:
Made To Fit Your Hands
- This shape gives you a better grip with less tension and delivers many important benefits through your swing
As a former player, I just like the way your hands fit when you grab it. It just feels so comfortable.
~ John Kruk, former MLB player, current analyst for ESPN
Puts The Handle In Your Fingertips
- The Axe handle's oval shape prevents hitters from over-gripping the batThe Axe handle puts the bat out into my fingertips – where I want to be.
- Provides a tension-free swing and greater energy transfer through the ball
~ Stuart Parkinson, 17-year-old high school player
Consistent Swing Plane
The Axe handle keeps the bat on plane through the ball. I can feel it right away if my hands come outside the ball
~Jonathan Scott, Major Slowpitch Softball star
Powerful Contact Position
- The Axe handle shape keeps the hands in a consistent and powerful palm up/palm down contact position (vs. the round handle, which allows the hands to prematurely roll)
The oval shape keeps my son in a palm up palm down contact position.
~Jim Schultz, dad of 12-year-old player
- The Axe handle's flat backside, with no protrusion into the palm, allows for an unrestricted swing and freer release (vs. the round knob, which presses into the palm and causes restriction and injury)
The shape of the Axe enables me to get my hands faster through the hitting zone. The traditional round knob cuts into my palm, and I feel like I can’t get through the ball as well.
~Danielle Lawrie, Major Fastpitch Softball Star, 2-time NCAA Player of the Year

The First Bat Built from End-to-End
Axe bats are approved at all levels of play in baseball, fastpitch, and slowpitch.
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.
Plus-Plus™ Composite Technology
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.
LP™ Scandium Alloy
LP™ Scandium Alloy was created from a combination of elements to deliver performance and durability under one-sided hitting conditions. In addition to resisting dents and cracks, LP™ Scandium alloy provides explosive pop and a large sweet spot for best-in-class performance.
Engineered Hitting Zone
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.
