Pros:  I was a bit hesitant to buy this for my son considering he used a -13 last season, but I gotta say I'm extremely impressed. He hasn't lost any swing speed and the bat is so well balanced that it feels much lighter than the advertised -8. I would highly recommend this to any parent that needs a lighter USA model.

Cons:  None so far

Pros:  * Ergonomics - Very comfortable & natural feeling in the hand! * Engineered hitting face - Less surface to break in. * The -8 drop weight combined with the Axe handle allows my 10 year old son to swing a heavier bat with more control. The added weight is mashing the ball! * Pop - This USA bat is outperforming other alloy bats and even composite bats in early season batting practice. We'll see if that holds true later in the season.

Cons:  * Vibration - This model will sting the hands if you hit it off the end cap.

Pros:  Good grip light swing no sting. NIce pop! My 11 year old loves it. We got him 2 other drop 10 USA bats first both are to heavy and sting bad .This drop 8 swings lighter the the other drop 10's. I was skeptical because of the listed weight but it's true what they say it swings lighter but with the pop of a heavier bat.

Cons:  None so far

Do USA Axe bats have to broken in with a certain amount of pitches or are they ready out of the box?

A break-in period is recommended for any bat with a composite barrel. This Axe Origin -8 USA is an alloy bat, so it will not require a break-in and be good to go as soon as you buy it.

Does this bat have the Endogrid technology?

This bat is not listed as having Axe's Endogrid technology. If it does, that information was not provided to us by Axe. You could try contacting them directly for more information.

I have heard that these modern bats should be rotated in your grip with each hit, so they "wear" evenly. Axe bats wouldn't allow that. Will they wear out faster or is this really a concern?

Axe bats, such as the 2018 Axe Origin -8 USA Baseball Bat: L135F, have a specially engineered hitting zone on one side of the bat that allows these bats to perform at a high level for an extended period of time, similar to that of a traditional bat.

Can you confirm this is a USA bat? I don't see the sticker.

The 2018 Axe Origin -8 USA Baseball Bat (L135F) is a USA bat and will come with the new USA baseball certification stamp.

It says endloaded. Does it really swing endloaded or more on the balanced side because of the end cap? I am trying to decide between the 30” 22oz or the 31” 23oz. My son is swinging a 30” 20oz Ghost X now but wanted to pick up a one piece aluminum. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

The balance of a bat can feel different to each player, but the 2018 Axe Origin -8 USA Baseball Bat: L135F is end loaded and it will feel end loaded to the majority of players.

Does the 28" 20 oz bat have the dampening technology in the handle in the youth model L135F?

Unfortunately, the 2018 Axe Origin -8 USA Baseball Bat: L135F does not feature the Endogrid technology to help reduce vibration.

Chop away the competition with the 2018 Axe baseball bats! The Origin series is the first step toward the start of something great. Once you make the switch to the ergonomically designed Axe handle that is designed for better control, comfort, bat speed, and safety, you'll never go back. That's a fact. With a one-piece, traditional alloy construction combined with an end loaded swing weight, the Origin is recommended for power hitters who are looking to increase their power at the plate. Each model is made up of the ultra-strong LP1 alloy that delivers season after season performance with explosive pop. An engineered hitting zone extends the sweet spot while maximizing performance and durability over a 270-degree contact area. This allows you to never rotate your barrel without the worry of damaging one side - a benefit you'll only see when you swing Axe bats. On the other end, Axe utilizes the shock-absorbing Endogrid technology which is built into the handle and helps eliminate negative feedback in the bottom hand so that you never have to deal with sting that is commonly felt when swinging a one-piece baseball bat. Last, but certainly not least, Axe's HyperWhip end cap helps remove unnecessary weight from the tip of the bat for faster swing speeds, a bigger barrel, and a massive sweet spot. Axe: Make The Switch!

This Axe Origin USA Baseball Bat (L135F) features a standard 2 5/8-inch barrel diameter, a drop 8 length to weight ratio, and the USABat certification making it approved for play in AABC, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth, Little League, and Pony.

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.
