Pros:  This bat is an engineering piece of art. My 13 yr. old son loves this bat (32/27). It's beautiful to look at and hold. The handle design feels so good in his hands, so comfortable, and no sting makes for many more swings at a practice. He's taken the bat to the fields 3 times for batting practice since we've gotten it, and he can't wait to get swing it in a game. I can't imagine him ever swinging the old style knob again.

Cons:  None yet.

Pros:  Was definitely worried about the -5 drop for my 5', 90lb 11- year old but he swings it with no problem. He had been using a 30/25 BambooBat during a wood bat tournament and it is nearly identical to that (length/weight), minus the bamboo and plus the engineered hitting zone, great grip and nice graphics.

Cons:  Bat speed is down a little versus his Combat Vigor (30/22) Only ding on the bat is the pop which has been engineered out of it but the ball still comes off as good as with his Bamboo bat.

Pros:  I have put in a ton of research into the new USA Bat standard given I am a parent of 2 players, coach of 2 team and board member at our local Little League. I can tell you for a fact, do not think all USA Bats are created equally. It was hard to give this bat a 4 star rating for pop knowing how much better the old bats were, but compared to just USA Bats, this bat is top dog. My 5'4" 130 lbs son tried all of the $200-$300 bats and the Elite was the only bat he could still hit for power consistently. Pros: Huge sweet spot Axe Handle End loaded for power

Cons:  None to speak of so far after 500 swings.

Pros:  My Son loves this bat. He started getting ready for the season with the composite 31/26 from Axe. This bat has great pop and he's driving the ball harder than with his Adidas 1.15 bat.

Cons:  None

Pros:  Its been great so far... does sting every now and again. To me that was a good thing as he's continueing to get better at hitting the ball more with the sweet spot. It took 2 days at the cages for him to get comfortable, but now his hitting is much better and mostly line drives. Didnt rate durability since we've only had it about a month so far.

Cons:  Took a few swings to get used to.

Pros:  Bought in Nov for xmas for my 13 y/o (8th grade) going into PONY. I knew about the new USA bat rules, so felt safe with making the purchase. I wish i would have waited until now to make the purchase. Found out last month that our league will allow BBCOR as well as USAbats. If i'd know, i would have gone BBCOR instead, that way he's got something ready for high school. Too late to return :( Hoping JustBats does a trade-in program for USABats. If not then, ebay it is. Pro: Feels great in hands with weight/balance and grip. Looks sleek.

Cons:  Cons: you lose that "Ping", and get that "sounds like hitting rocks" sound. We've been practicing for a for two months now and the glory of using the new Axe USAbat has gone. He's gone back to using his game bat from last year for practice, but of course will go back to the Axe next month when his games start.

Pros:  Looks like my first review was never posted (approved). If this wasn't an xmas gift, i would have been able to return it but missed the 30day deadline. If you're child is allowed to use BBCor bat (in 14u) definitely go that route, especially if they're going into highschool this year or next. Pros: Good looking bat. Feels good in hands.

Cons:  Zero POP! Chips easily. No one on our team wants to use it.

Do you have to break in this bat? If so how?

The 2018 Axe Elite -5 USA Baseball Bat: L134F features a hybrid design. This means that the barrel features alloy material. Alloy bats will not require a break-in period, and will be at its peak performance right out of the wrapper.

Won’t hitting the same spot on the bat wear it out? The bat handle doesn't allow you to rotate it between hits right?

Yes, the unique Axe handle does cause you to hit the ball on the same area of the bat each time. Axe specifically designs the bat to be able to handle this however.

My son is 13 playing middle school, not sure what league that falls into. I see that this has a -5 how does that compare to a -8?

I always recommend checking with a coach or league official to confirm what bat certification you need to be legal. Typically, players in middle school leagues or youth leagues will be required to swing USA bats like the 2018 Axe Elite -5 USA Baseball Bat: L134F. On the other side of things, players in travel ball tournaments or travel games will be approved to swing USSSA 1.15 BPF certified bats. The USSSA version of the Axe Elite is the 2018 Axe Elite -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: L133F. Both of these bats feature a -5 drop weight which will be 3 ounces heavier than a -8 bat.

All new Axe Bats come with a no risk 30-day challenge! You can use this model in a batting cage, in practice, or even in a game. If you are not satisfied within 30 days from your original purchase date, you may send it back to us for a full refund or exchange, no questions asked!

Axe baseball bats are for the bold! For the 2018 season, the Elite series is one of the most durable models on the market. It all starts with the military grade Mantic alloy barrel construction that results in the strongest and most explosive bat that Axe has ever created. This two-piece, hybrid design combines the traditional sound of alloy with the vibration dampening effects of a composite handle. With more whip, less negative feedback in the hands, and an end loaded swing weight, the Elite baseball bats are recommended for power hitters who want to take their swing to the next level. An engineered hitting zone extends the sweet spot while maximizing power to the entire 270-degree contact area, so you’ll never need to rotate your barrel for durability – a benefit you only get by swinging an Axe handle. Not only are you maximizing bat speed and increasing control during every at bat with an Axe handle, but you will be reducing the risk of injury as well. On the other end, a composite HyperWhip end cap extends the barrel length, reduces unnecessary weight, and allows for increased swing speeds. Last, but certainly not least, the innovative Endogrid technology absorbs all shock to the bottom hand for a smooth, comfortable feel on contact. Axe: Make The Switch!

This Axe Elite USA baseball bat (L134F) features a 2 5/8-inch barrel diameter, a drop 5 length to weight ratio, and the USABat certification which makes it approved for play in AABC, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth, Little League, and Pony. Get a hold of the Axe advantage and order one of these Elite baseball bats today with free shipping and a full one (1) year manufacturer's warranty. Don't forget, with our 24/7 customer service, we'll be here for you from click to hit!

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
