Axe Bat Speed Trainers powered by Driveline Baseball
Unlock next-level bat speed, exit velocity, and an optimal swing plane with three Axe Bat Speed Trainers and four unique 12-week training modules designed for both in-season and out-of-season work. Engineered by the hitting coaches and data analysts at Driveline Baseball, this system utilizes over-loaded and under-loaded Axe bats to holistically enhance your swing for increased power and launch angle.
“I strongly encourage any hitter who has a desire to get better to utilize these bats along with the daily routines that go with the system.” – Pat Bailey, Hitting Coach, Oregon State
“The Axe Bat Speed Trainers are a great training tool to help players create bat speed but also gain a greater understanding of grip identity in order to manipulate the barrel. These bats not only help train the body to move at a faster rate by improving functional strength, but also improve barrel awareness.” – Tim Corbin, Head Coach, Vanderbilt
WHAT IT DOES:
The baseball swing is a unique movement that demands unique training – unlike traditional strength training, our overload/underload system works the entire sequence of muscles involved in a swing. Driveline’s training program is fine-tuned to affect every stage of movement, delivering a better swing from start to finish.
Driveline measured the effects of weighted bat training on exit velocity and launch angle over an 8-week period and found noticeable increases in each category:
- 1 overload, handleload Axe Bat Speed Trainer, 2-5/8” barrel, with red tip (+20% overload/33”/36 oz.)
- 1 overload, endload Axe Bat Speed Trainer, 2-5/8” barrel, with green tip (+20% overload/33”/36 oz.)
- 1 underload Axe Bat Speed Trainer, 2-5/8” barrel, with blue tip (-20% underload/33”/24 oz.)

WHAT COLLEGE COACHES ARE SAYING:
“We have been using overload and underload training with our hitters for years to increase bat speed and barrel control. We have used virtually every overload and underload bat on the market and can say without question that the Axe Bat Speed Trainers are the best we have ever used…The Axe Bat Speed Trainers are helping us take our overload/underload training to a whole new level.” – Dan Heefner, Head Coach, Dallas Baptist University
“Driveline has developed a program involving underloaded and overloaded bats that has proven to increase our hitters’ performance on the field. I urge any hitters looking to reach their fullest potential to implement Driveline’s equipment and routines into their own training.” – Dillon Lawson, Hitting Coach, University of Missouri
“We will use any equipment that we feel will help our hitters perform. Research shows that underload/overload bats can improve bat speed. Driveline has come up with a system along with the actual bats that have proven to be a GREAT resource for our hitters. I strongly encourage any hitter who has a desire to get better to utilize the Driveline bats along with the daily routines that go with the system.” – Pat Bailey, Oregon State, Hitting Coach
“When using the Axe Bat overload/underload trainers, we are able to train our guys by changing the stimulus several times over the course of a few rounds. Our guys are understanding how to move the overload bat quicker without muscling it and are surprised with how fast their bodies can move with the underload bat. Anyone who is serious about developing better movements and wants an edge in the batter’s box should look into the Axe Bat Speed Trainers.” – Sean Moore, Assistant Hitting Coach, University of Iowa
