Baseball and softball bats are the most important tool for players, and like any piece of sports equipment, they require proper care and maintenance to ensure their longevity. Here are some tips on how to properly care for and maintain your Axe bat:
- Store your bat properly: When not in use, store your bat in a cool and dry place. Avoid leaving your bat in your car or any place where it will be exposed to extreme temperatures. Extreme temperatures can cause the materials to expand or contract, resulting in cracks or splits.
- Clean your bat after each use: It is important to clean your bat after every use to remove dirt and debris. Use a soft cloth or a sponge with mild soap and water to clean the barrel of the bat. Avoid using harsh chemicals or solvents as they can damage the finish of the bat.
- Avoid hitting hard or dense objects: Hitting hard or dense objects like concrete or metal can cause your bat to dent, crack, or even break. Stick to hitting baseballs/softballs or approved training objects to prolong the life of your bat.
- DO NOT Rotate the bat: Depending on barrel material, we utilize several different technologies to make one sided hitting possible, such as our Power Gap, Tri-Flex, or Shieldboost technologies. These barrel technologies allow our bats to be impacted repeatedly on the same surface, without fear of damage. There is no situation in which it is necessary for you to rotate your Axe Bat, and doing so may even result in unnecessary damage, as the non-hitting face of the bat is not designed for impact.
- Use bat grips: Bat grips not only improve your grip on the bat but also protect the handle from sweat and oils that can damage the wood. Replace your bat grip periodically to maintain its effectiveness. Check out Axe Bat Grips here.
- Avoid hitting waterlogged balls: Waterlogged balls are heavy and can cause your bat to become dented or even break. If you're playing in wet conditions, make sure to dry off the balls before using them.
- Did your Axe Bat Break?: Don't worry our alloy and composite game models come with a 1-year warranty.
