|Baden Sports is proud to present their revolutionary new line of BBCOR baseball bats! If you've never heard of Baden's patented AXE handle, you're missing out. The revolutionary design is exactly what it sounds like. The handle of an AXE bat is designed like the handle of an actual axe to provide optimal control and grip of the bat. This asymmetrical handle is biomechanically engineered for a flush fit and assists in keeping a hitter on the correct swing plane. As a result, players get better barrel accuracy and a decreased risk of injury and hand fatigue.
I am not going to lie, after hearing about this bat a few years ago I was as huge skeptic. I thought to myself, "Here we go again, another absurd handle design." Honestly, after taking some hacks in the cage I was thoroughly surprised. This is not another gimmick. Baden put a lot of time and thought into the design of this bat. The handle really does give you added control and great balance through the zone. After falling in love with the handle, my next concern dealt with the fact you are continually hitting on the same side of the bat. After talking to some of the engineers at Baden they put this concern to rest. The bat is designed to take the impact of bat/ball collision and distribute the impact throughout the entire barrel.
I will say this bat is not for everyone, but for those that are looking for more wrist action at the start of their swing, great balance and feel through the zone, and a top notch bat, this is a great alternative to the conventional bat.
