Pros:  This bat is very durable, has moderate pop, and looks VERY good. I have swung with this bat and hit the ball 100% wrong, and I didn't hear any cracks.

Cons:  This bat is VERY top-heavy. I know it's a -5 (24 oz.), but it feels heavier than my 26 oz.

Pros:  Axe handle makes for a great swing. GREAT pop, better then a normal wood bat. My son uses a Marucci Hex in league play but in a wood bat tournament used the 2017 AXE Hardwood Composite -5 Youth Baseball Bat: L116E and was crushing the bat just like the Hex bat. Would buy again!

Cons:  I put a grip on the bat to help with sting and grip for my 8 year old. The paint before game use is Awesome. After a weekend tournament bat end is all chipped up and looks bad.

Why would this bat not be legal for Little League use in 2018?

This 2017 AXE Hardwood Composite -5 Youth Baseball Bat (L116E) is not legal for Little league use in 2018 because it is not built of just a single piece of ash, maple or birch wood. This bat combines wood and non-wood, composite material in its build. That combination of of wood and non-wood material would deem it illegal for 2018 Liitle League use.

Is it because it says composite hardwood it's not legal for little league? The rules I read said if the bat is wood it doesn't need USA stamp.

The 2017 AXE Hardwood Composite -5 Youth Baseball Bat: L116E is not approved for Little League because of the composite structure. Approved wood bats are made out of a single type of wood. For example, an all maple wood baseball bat would be approved.

Is this bat balanced or end loaded?

Is this bat good for practice when using a pitching machine with the yellow knobie/ slightly heavier balls?

The yellow dimple balls actually have a heavier weight consistency to them and are not the best for any bat over an extended period of time. A bat like the 2017 AXE Hardwood Composite -5 Youth Baseball Bat: L116E is more likely to break on off-centered hits due to the balls being heavier but can certainly be used for the yellow dimple balls.

Axe Handle Scientifically Proven Benefits
Better Bat Control - High-speed video reveals a "hammering" motion from the traditional round knob. The Axe handle stabilizes the grip, increasing barrel control.
More Power & Bat Speed - Range of motion is increased and tension is reduced in the hands, resulting in greater power transfer and more bat speed.
Enhanced Comfort - The Axe handle is ergonomically designed to fit naturally in the contour of your hand.
Reduces Injuries - Traditional handles put tremendous pressure on a single point of the hand, which contains the commonly broken Hamate bone. The flush backside of the AXE handle relieves this pressure.
