2022 Avenge Pro Hybrid. I love the feedback it gives me.
Axe: What music do you listen to while training?
Usually Country, but sometimes Smooth Jazz. I think Jazz should be the official music genre of baseball.

It’s much easier to grip. I haven’t had to worry about grip at all since making the switch. It’s also an extremely comfortable alternative to a traditional handle that helps me to stay online with pitch plane better.

The game atmosphere is incredible, we’re a 35+ man family, & there’s nothing more fun than winning college baseball games.

Axe: What’s one hitting tip you would give kids?
Hitting a baseball presents you with an endless number of possibilities, counter this is by developing strong levels of awareness, control, and adjustability.
