Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 8 year old son loves this bad!!! This bat might be the best secret in youth baseball. With the new USA baseball bat standards the bats just don’t have the same pop. In order to get more pop off the bat you need more force when hitting which is hard for the smaller/younger players. Even though this bat is -8oz my son finds it easier to swing than is Easton hyperlite -11. Somehow the Axe bat is able to get around to the ball and make better solid contact. Don’t let the weight be an issue. The shape of the handle is special and does make a difference. I can’t wait for some regular season action.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Son LOVES it Bought this bat a week ago and my 8 y/o loves it. He has used it at both a travel team practice and a private lesson and he has a noticeable increase in his bat speed and his control. Maybe it is the extra year of growth and experience but he also seems to have more pop then he had last season as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent pop for the new USA bat standard Seems to be a well balanced bat. Although slightly heavier than the now "non-compliant" Easton my son had been using, it swings just as easy. The AXE has a pretty large "sweet spot" and my 10 y.o. son felt comfortable swinging it from the first pitch. It has a nice little "ping" when the ball hits it. The Axe handle grip didn't phase him at all, and he had no complaints about it stinging his hands in the 100+ baseball he hit. The vibrant color is all the rage right now and this bat will difinately stand out in a crowd. The paint shows a few slight nicks after the first use. We'll see how it handles a season or two of abuse. In all, a good bat at an acceptable price point for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swingman Smooth This bat is by far the best bat on the market. My son went from a -12 last season to this -8 Axe handle and his swing almost looks quicker. Don't sleep on this bat it has the same pop and power that the upper end Eastons (Ghost/Beast) have but at a lesser cost. The axe handle is very comfy every kid and coach for that matter that picks it up and swings it loves the feel. Seriously we are Axe customers for life now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Bat Bought for my 11y/o. He has had several Axe bats in the past and loves them. League just switched to USA bats and after a couple of practices he says it swings just like his old one. This ones a little heavier and haven’t seen him hit off a kid pitching. So far so good. hes warped other bats ,not Axe, in the past so we will have to see how this one holds up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Put an Axe in it! Pros: Great look, 50% of players who tested said it was comfortable in their hands. Temp outside during test 62F, cloudy with calm winds. Cons: I brought 10 players together to try this bat out ranging from 9-10 years old. Each received approx 20 cuts. The pop is definitely gone with the new USA bat standards but the biggest problem with this bat is the amount of vibration is causes during contact. Stinging hands was felt on almost every swing, which makes it very uncomfortable to get lots of reps in. It had nothing to do with the location of contact it would even make your hands sting on the sweet spot which is very small compared to old standard. I had to give it a try after the 3rd batter because I couldn't believe it after reading many good reviews online, that's why I bought the bat! First swing, contact was made on the sweet spot with a line drive to right center and the moment I made contact I knew exactly what the kids were experiencing. I took 10 more cuts and felt the worst vibration I have ever felt in a bat, no seriously, the worst. I could write much more, but please test this bat out for yourself before buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great affordable bat My 12 yo son plays in Cal Ripken Youth Baseball. At the initial bat demo he loved the feel and the pop is not bad at all. He loves the handle and Axe has it right to get your hands through the strike zone palm up and palm down. He had a Mako Torq which he loved but now that he has the Axe bat he is not going back to the old handles. Just to speak of how the bat feels he hasn’t complained of any sting in his hands unlike the Easton Hyperlite that stung on every hit. We have tried it outside already and he is still crushing the ball. In fact some of the best hitters in our league now use Axe bats. Our next purchase will be an Axe bbcor. Looking forward to the future with these bats
