The revolutionary AXE design is changing the way we look at baseball bats. The handle of an AXE bat is designed like the handle of an actual ax to provide optimal control and grip of the bat. The design is unique and helps every hitter align their hands properly on the bat providing maximum feel and comfort. The AXE handle fits flush against the bottom hand, locking it in place while allowing hitters to set their own hand position. The ergonomic shape provides better leverage and better extension while eliminating the negative force generated by the traditional knob during each swing, which provides overall better bat speed. This design promotes a palm up/palm down contact position, leading to a greater consistency of correct swings. The flush fit helps reduce bruising of the palm and potential injury of the vulnerable hamate bone and promotes a better follow through and smoother release. Now, you can swing this unique design in a professional grade maple hardwood. With its 243 turn and cupped end for great balance, this wood bat is equipped to take your game to the next level! AXE bats, don't step in the box without one. Free Shipping!

This AXE Maple 243 Wood Baseball Bat (L119-BJ1) features a standard 2 5/8-inch barrel diameter and a one-piece maple wood construction. Experience the Axe handle advantage and buy one of these wood baseball bats today, with free shipping. Remember, 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.

Second one. Won’t swing nothing else. Ryan Player

Pros: Love this bat. Just the feel of the handle. Definitely helps me get through the zone faster. Natural feel. Being a power hitter this end loaded barrel has pop. Hit a RBI double to left field fence out home opener. I’m also a recreational 42 year old in a wood bat league. Love this bat

Cons: My first one broke after 3/4 of the season. They can break.

What is the difference between the "ball joint" 243 and the normal 243?
Brendan McCarthy
The AXE Pro Maple Ball Joint 243 Wood Baseball Bat: L119-BJ1 utilizes the ball joint which refers to the cut of the knob. The back of the knob has a more flush finish with the taper than the normal 243.
How many ounces is the 33.5" and if this is the biggest barrel what are the the sizes below this?
This is an adult wood bat, so it will be roughly a -2 to -3 drop. A 33.5" model would weigh roughly 31.5-30.5 oz. Most wood bats have a barrel diameter of roughly 2 1/2".

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.
