Axe Avenge Pro -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: L173K

Club baseballs with confidence when you take your place in the batter's box with an Axe Avenge Pro!

Bat Benefits

This version of the Axe Avenge Pro is looking to add some excitement to a bat that has already proved itself as a serious contender in the USSSA Baseball Bat space. With this edition, Axe has outfitted the two-piece & all-composite bat with a new Charged Carbon Max Composite Material. However, that new material won't be the only new thing for this bat. Axe will also be unveiling their newest rendition of their Blastwall Barrel and they are calling it the "Shieldboost". Axe's Blastwall Barrels have become integral parts of their bats as they allow for the bat to be hit on the one side intended for hitting while maintaining durability and performance.

This drop 8 sized model will make a great bat for hitters that have moved on from lighter swinging bats. If you have an advanced 11 or 12-year-old hitter, then a drop 8 is a great consideration. And if you are a 13-year-old, a drop 8 might be the absolute perfect size (be sure to note that at least a drop 8 size of bat is required for use in the 13U division of USSSA baseball). Plus, this bat has the largest allowed 2 3/4" barrel diameter. You'll feel like the bat can cover the entire strike zone due to it being so large!


A company that produces bats with such a unique feature as an axe handle should also hold themselves to a high standard of care when it comes to customers. Axe does exactly that by offering a twelve (12) month manufacturer’s warranty period on this bat. If you get the bat from JustBats and notice an issue on it within 1 year from when it was purchased, please let the Bat Experts at JustBats know about the situation. They will get you all the information needed to reach out to Axe and set up the warranty replacement process for this bat.

Son loves this bat!! M Berry Parent

Pros: Big barrel, lot of pop, love the design. This is our 4th AXE bat and this one is fire. Used it in a tourney out the wrapper and hit 5 homeruns and multiple hits in the first 10 days. Love AXE!!

Cons: None other then the cost. But my kids confidence is priceless.

Axe Avenge Pro Ryan Tedder Parent

Pros: Weight distribution, “feels lighter that other -8”

Cons: Tapered handle on the 30 is what gets that length but for all tense a purpose it feels like a 29in

Just broke 4th bat Tonya Parent

Pros: Awesome pop

Cons: Not durable. Just broke our fourth bat. Have had the white and red Avenge since it came out with no issues. Have had four of these blue ones crack.. Just Bats replaced the first two as they broke the week we got them, awesome customer service. We reached out to Axe to make sure we were breaking in properly -Axe said they had an issue with the first group of bats and assured us the third should have no issue. Third bat broke the first tournament we used it. Got the fourth on warranty through Axe and cracked at the second tournament. And now we are out of warranty. We’ve been buying Axe bats for years and never had an issue.. Very disappointing..

Have a question about the Axe Avenge Pro -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: L173K? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Is this the same bat as the '22 version but with different colors?
No the Avenge Pro 2023 L173K is a completely new design than the L173J. This new bat starts hotter out of the wrapper thanks to Axe's Shield Boost Technology as well as lower swing weight and a .5" longer barrel. All of this coupled with the added connection technology Shock Suspension to reduce sting on miss hits makes the L173K vastly different than the L173J.
Is this a durable bat?
We have not heard of anything, at this time, that would lead us to believe that the Axe Avenge Pro -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: L173K lacks durability.

Launched by Baden Sports in 2011, the Axe line of bats was hailed as a breakthrough in bat technology by players and coaches from youth leagues to the Pros. The makers of the Axe line of bats often pose the question, "What does your traditional knob do for you?" Most players don't have a good answer. Axe engineers have created a handle that is not only more comfortable and safer in terms of hand injuries, but also helps improve the hitter's swing by keeping them on an even plane. Although Axe is new to the market, they are backed by Baden Sports, Inc., an independent, family-owned company that has been making baseball products since 1979. Their passion to create a better game is unparalleled, making it no surprise that the Axe handle is set to be baseball's next big thing.
