axe flared handle bats

One of the biggest leaders in bat innovation has released its new flared handle design. Axe bats are forcing the way baseball and softball communities look at bats. Built with an ergonomic handle design, Axe bats promote safer, faster swings for hitters of all ages. Today, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at the new Axe Flared Handle and what it means for hitters. 

We hope you enjoy this breakdown, and as always, if you have any follow-up questions please feel free to reach out to our team of Bat Experts.

What’s The Difference Between The Original Axe Handle & The Flared Handle? 

The Flared handle is a more approachable handle design compared to the standard Axe handle. It’s less dramatic (more rounded) to allow hitters a comfortable transition. Furthermore, the Flared taper feels more natural, works with all types of grips, and frees up a hitter’s hands to maximize their swing speeds. All while still promoting much of the same benefits parents and players have come to expect from an Axe baseball or softball bat. Now, what bats have the flared handle option? Let's dive in. 

Axe Flared Handle BBCOR Bats

Hitters, get ready for one of the most enjoyable BBCOR bats you’ll ever swing. Blessed with an ultra-lightweight swing design, the Axe Strato delivers optimal barrel control to cover the entire strike zone. The Armour Enhanced Alloy arrives hot out of the wrapper and is strong enough to make it through multiple seasons of use. Plus, Axe has incorporated precision machinery to perfectly refine the barrel for the maximum performance allowed at the BBCOR level. Lastly, the Axe Flared handle works to free up hitters’ grips and allow for more comfort at the dish.

To summarize, the flared handle Axe Strato BBCOR bat features the following:

  • Balanced swing feel
