Aside from the 2016 model with the name Axe Element Hyperwhip, there really are no comparable bats to the 2017 Hyperwhip Fusion. Sure, there are single-piece aluminum bats with an extended end cap, but none of those have the asymmetric knob or endcap.
If we were stretching, we'd suggest the 2017 Louisville Slugger 617 Solo. That is also a single-piece aluminum with an extended end cap that only comes in a BBCOR. As well, the 2017 VELO from Rawling has a similar intent as a single-piece aluminum with the extended composite end cap for a light swing. The VELO has the benefit of other size options outside of BBCOR. However, neither of those bats come with the ergonomic knob nor the barrel made for one-sided hitting.
We cover the intricacies of the Axe Hyperwhip in our 2016 review on the Axe Element. For that discussion, we point you there. The 2017 and 2016 models are identical aside from color. Here we give some short overviews of the very unique construction of the 2017 Hyperwhip Fusion.
