Our hitters liked the ax-handle, the big barrel, and the light swing of the 2021 Axe Avenge Pro. This bat feels different than previous years' two-piece composites from Axe. It's either a function of the connection piece, the more rounded barrel, or both. In either case, our hitters liked the Axe Avenge Pro more than any previous version of the Axe Avenge in USSSA. If you are wondering, COVID pushed back several of the releases within Axe's line. It is why there is no Avenge Pro for 2021 in USA. However, we've heard rumblings that later in the season we might see a 2021 BBCOR Axe Avenge Pro.
We recommend the USSSA Axe Avenge Pro from 2021 to the USSSA hitter who likes a balanced swing, the ax handle and a flexible feel on contact. The right hitter could do a lot of good work with this bat.
The 2021 vs. the 2020 Axe Avenge went through considerable changes. The 2021 Axe Avenge Pro uses an upgraded composite and connection piece for an almost completely different feel. The 2021 swings balanced and have the ax-shaped handle, like 2020, but that's where the similarities end. We think the Axe Avenge Pro for 2021 is a considerable upgrade and worth the price difference--if there is one by the time you read this.
The 2021 Axe Avenge Pro is a two-piece composite bat built with a balanced swing, a reasonably sized barrel, and a semi-flexible connection piece. It comes in a drop 8 and uses its patented ax-shaped handle on both bats.
