Pros:  my son wasn't sure at first and then seemed to really like the Axe handle. I thought he hit well with it and still good distance in practicing with it.

Cons:  Just not enough reviews and not got to try other new USA bats to see how the axe stacks up.

Pros:  My son loves it!!!! After having owned the 2017 Axe element my son wanted another for the 2018 usa bat standard. I was a little nervous b/c of the drop -8 but he has not missed a step. He said it swings easier and feels equal to or better than the 2017. He got it 2-3 weeks ago and he has had about 5-6 hours of cage time with it and loves it!!!!

Cons:  Only con he has is getting used to the change from composite to alloy.

Pros:  We tried the Easton Ghost bat and the AXE, After hitting with both twice he felt the Axe was had more balance and pop. The handle felt more comfortable when swinging. You won't be disappointed with this bat. Don't waste your money on the expensive overrated Easton.

Cons:  None

“Excellent bat”

Pros:  I rated this bat a 5 in pop but let me clarify, that is in comparison to other USAbats. all USAbats are going to have considerably less pop than what we are used to. I have seen other USAbats being used in games and practice. The expensive Eastons have really not impressed me. The only USAbat I liked prior to this is the Rawlings Prodigy. The Element is one of the sharpest looking bats on the market. My son swings a -8 mako Xl big barrel right now. Although they are the same weight and length he says the Axe feels lighter and swings smoother. I notice when he swings the bat he is swinging faster and he is staying through the ball consistently, where as he was starting to develop a bad habit of letting go of his top hand with his mako. The Element is a single piece alloy. My son is bat sting sensitive but has yet to notice any more sting than his current two piece composite. Also his wrist has been sore lately but it doesn't bother him while swinging the Axe unlike his Mako

Cons:  none so far

Pros:  One of the best USAbats on the market. Son loves it, says it's easier to swing than the -8 would suggest. He loves the handle and is staying through the ball as opposed to letting go of his top hand prior to contact. Pop is good for a USAbat, better than a lot others on the market right now but on par with the better popping bats

Cons:  None so far

Pros:  Great feel and swing. Because of the hyper whip end cap swings fairly balanced for an end loaded bat. Also swings lighter than the actual weight. Basically a 20 ounce bat swings like an 18 ounce bat. Also for a one piece alloy my son said he barely feels any sting and if he does it's a little bit on his top hand only. Pop is pretty good for a usa bat and because it swings lighter than the weight he can swing a heavier bat for more mass and keep his bat speed. Only had it for a couple of months so can't comment on durability just yet

Cons:  None so far

Pros:  My son 11 yo was swinging a combat 27 17 -10 pg4 last year so i was concerned he wouldn't be able to generate bat speed with the AXE 28 20 -8. He hit a bucket of the tee and said it felt just as light with better balance then the lighter combat. Then the real test. At travel ball practice he decided to use it in bp and was driving the ball just as hard and far as the kids with usssa 1.15 bats! Save your money, buy this bat.

Cons:  The grip could be better, need to swap it out with lizard skin

Does the bat shape make the Axe bats easier to swing? How does the swing weight of the -8 Axe Element compare to swing weight of a balanced -10?

The unique Axe handle design does make the bat easier to swing for some players. From what I've heard is players either love the unique handle design or they aren't a fan and want a more standard handle. The swing weight of a -8 will be similar to other bats that are a -8 and a balanced design.

If my son is use to swinging a balanced bat, -12 COMBAT, will the -8 end loaded Axe bat be difficult for him to maintain his bat speed? He is on the small side for 9 years old.

Going from a balanced bat to an end-loaded model can be an adjustment for some players to get comfortable with. Jumping from a -12 model to the 2018 Axe Element -8 USA Baseball Bat: L139F would be a tough adjustment for any player to make, regardless of the swing weight design, and certainly one we would recommend avoiding for a 9 year old player. Unfortunately, at this time one will not find an Axe bat in the -10 category.

Does the 32 inch bat meet the USA Little League standards? I was told it did not, and it was an adult bat.

The 2018 Axe Element -8 USA Baseball Bat: L139F is USA certified, with the USA stamp on the bat, so it is legal for Little League in all sizes.

I heard that sometime in December Axe was going to release a drop 10 in this model. If that is true can you give me a date?

We are unaware of the 2018 Axe Element -8 USA Baseball Bat: L139F being made in a -10 model. At this time it would be best to reach out to Axe directly to see if that is the case.

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.
Customer Testimonial

I was thoroughly pleased with the overall purchase. I called prior to placing my web order and the rep was very helpful. The price was great, and my son received his bats in 2 days via the free ground shipping. We couldn't have been happier with our choice...
