All Science, No Gimmicks
The Axe Bat is an entirely new concept for bats where science meets tradition. The handle is designed to give you, the player, added benefits such as:
- Performance grip -- The handle is designed to fit perfectly into your hands, meaning there's no knob digging into your palm. This allows you to stay on a consistent swing plane; one where you don't roll your wrists and lose power. Along with better bat control from a stabilized grip, it forces your hands into a more powerful contact position. What does this mean? Harder hit balls and more solid contact.
- More efficient power transfer -- With a traditional knob, you lose momentum and energy right before contact. The way it's designed, you'll always have the knob negatively impacting your swing and preventing you from a 100% transfer of power from bat to ball. With the Axe handle's flush backside, you'll never have the knob protruding into your palm and preventing you from fully extending and swinging through the ball. What does this mean? Faster barrel acceleration and increased swing speed.
- Reduced risk of injury -- Hundreds of players, including over 20 MLB players, have injured themselves due to the traditional knob. The round handle puts a tremendous amount of pressure on a single point on the hand, which contains the commonly broken hamate bone and nerve responsible for thrown bats. What does this mean? A safer, more comfortable grip for the players.
Don't believe us? UCLA recently released a study that has proved all the above points and more. Check out the full study HERE.
All bats are approved at all levels of play in Baseball, Fastpitch, and Slowpitch. This includes MLB, NCAA, NFHS, USSSA, ASA, Pony, Little League, ISA, and more!
