Why a Hybrid Model is Best for USA Baseball

Posted by AxeBat US Admin on

The Avenge Pro Hybrid features many of the same benefits of a typical two-piece composite bat oft-seen around USA Baseball games, most importantly: Axe Bat’s shock suspension connection, but combines those features with a barrel tuned to perform to the true peak value of the USA-Bat legal limit, as is seen in the lab performance comparison below, measured via the Axe Performance lab. Further description of such charts can be found in our previous blog.

Bat Performance Standards: How Do They Differ? What Do They Mean?

Posted by AxeBat US Admin on

Each individual governing body chooses to regulate bats via their own performance metrics; however, all modern metrics are measured identically via the bat performance cannon described above, and values that are compounded by the ratio of outbound to inbound speed measured by the cannon process. Each of these individual metrics are described below.

Each bat sold in the American bat market is required to pass certification testing at a third-party laboratory for its given regulatory stamp prior to production and sale of that bat design.

Bat Sting is a Thing of The Past: Axe Bat’s Shock Suspension Connection

Posted by AxeBat US Admin on

Enter Axe Bat’s patent pending Shock Suspension Connection, one of the few technologies in the game that completely separates the barrel from the handle of two-piece bats, via shock absorbing dampening material.  The Shock Suspension Connection can be found on nearly every 2022 & 2023 Axe Bat baseball or fastpitch model, including the 2023 USSSA Avenge Pro2022 BBCOR Avenge Pro & Avenge Pro Hybrid,  2022 Fastpitch Avenge Pro, and the soon-to-be released 2023 BBCOR and USA-Bat Avenge Pro Hybrid.

Bat Barrel Compression

Posted by AxeBat US Admin on

Barrel compression describes the scientific method used to measure the deflection (or flex) of a baseball or softball bat barrel wall, replicating what may happen when the barrel is impacted by a pitched ball. The barrel compression method may be performed in a lab with high precision barrel compression machine, capable of measuring barrel compressions accurate to the ±0.01lb), or performed on-field using hand-held devices, that while not as accurate, are much more portable.
