A ROUND-HANDLED BAT HURTS YOUR SWING.

For more than 140 years, players everywhere have been swinging bats with a major design flaw: the round knob handle.

You could consider it outdated design, but it was never designed in the first place. It was the best that could be mass-produced on simple wood lathes, the same centuries-old tools used to make table legs, candlesticks, and cookware.

Simply put: the handle was never intentionally designed for the player’s grip… until now.

We designed the better bat.

IT ALL STARTS WITH OUR AXE HANDLE.

We created a handle designed for the way your hand grips the bat, and that improved grip is scientifically proven to enhance your bat speed and barrel control. Meet the Axe Bat axe handle.

Engineered for the biomechanics and ergonomics of your swing, the axe handle supports your most natural and efficient movement through the hitting zone. When compared to the old-school round knob in a comprehensive study conducted by UCLA’s Vijay Gupta, Ph.D., using elite college baseball players, the axe handle was superior in every category.

“Look at our right fielder, Mookie Betts. He’s having a tremendous year using it. He’s surpassed his career high in home runs, and he’s hitting over .300. Our second baseman, Dustin Pedroia, was a good hitter, but with this bat, he has more pop.”

ENGINEERED HITTING ZONE

Loaded hitting face for the most explosive barrel, you’ll experience unrivaled durability and pop every time your bat makes contact.

HYPERWHIP ENDCAP

In 2016, Mookie Betts had a monster offensive season while swinging the Axe Bat axe handle in every single plate appearance. Watch the All-Star and AL MVP Runner-Up explain why he made the switch.

“I’ve played with many different types of bats and I can honestly say the Axe is the first one where I really can feel my hands through the hitting zone. After using this, there’s no way I can see myself swinging anything else.”
Danielle Lawrie, 2-time NCAA Player of the Year

“The ob-longed or oval shaped handle actually starts to feel normal after just a few hacks and within a matter of minutes it felt like a natural extension of the bat. Oddly enough, when I picked up a normal shaped bat after about 50 cuts with the Avenge in the cage, it was actually the traditional shaped handles that felt awkward.”

“I saw Mookie and other pros swinging the bat this season and figured it was worth a shot. Best decision ever. I ended up getting the Hyperwhip and wood bat for cage work and I’ve never felt more confident at the plate.”
Mitch, Axe Customer
“This thing allows you to lock grip and never lose it. With a rounded-knob bat, there are times, through the swing, where you make contact and the bat is vibrating and the knob is spinning. You can miss-hit balls because of that. You don’t get the full force of contact as you do with an axe handle.”
