This bat comes in a 2 3/4 version as well as a 2 5/8 version. The difference is all but nothing except for the serial number. The 2 3/4 version has a serial number of L143H, while the 2 5/8 version has a serial number of L149H. Both are single-piece alloy bats with decent barrel profiles and the famous Axe handle.

The 2021 Axe Elite One in BBCOR is a heavy swinging single piece aluminum built for the big hitter who wants an ax-shaped handle and all the barrel they can handle. This bat is built for big hitters that like a stiff feel and prefer or are fine with the Axe Handle. This 2020 version of the Elite One is the same as Axe's site that says the bat is a 2021. They didn't change the model number or anything else about the bat. COVID is likely to blame here as inventory is way above anticipated levels.

Axe has a lot of very similar bats in the Elite One line-up. It makes it difficult to be sure you're buying the right one. This one, with the serial number of L149H, is a 2 5/8 barrel on a drop 10 USSSA bat. Not to be confused with the L143H which is this same league and drop in a 2 3/4. Some leagues still require a 2 5/8 barrel while still allowing a USSSA bat.

2020 Axe Elite One USA Drop 8
Find Similar Bats

The 2020 Axe Elite One is a single-piece drop 8 alloy bat built with a stiff feel and an ax shaped handle. It is for stronger hitting kids who like a less flexible bat, a slight end-load, and an ax-shaped handle. As well, players who like this bat don't care as much about hand sting and massive barrel proviles. We like this version of the bat better than the drop 10 as we feel like the added mass makes contact feel better on mishits and gives it some added mass behind the ball.

The 2020 Axe Elite One USA is a drop 10 single piece alloy bat with a good-sized barrel and a light swing. The smaller sizes (26 and 27) are 2.5-inch barrels---not the standard 2 5/8 barrel. However, those 25 and 26-inch versions of the 2020 Elite One USA are our favorites within the group. They are almost perfect for the coach pitch market. Very young kids, just new into the baseball world, will like the ax handle, good sound, and very light swing of those shorter sizes. The 27 through 30 inches are fine, but we like the drop 8 versions of the bat better in those sizes (if one can swing it).

The 2020 Voodoo One is a single-piece bat with a balanced swing and moderately sized barrel. The bat is hard to find, but don't be worried; it's the same bat as the 2019 and 2018 versions that are the same but the end cap. We think the bat is decent, but its exit speeds are no better than other BBCOR bats especially similar ones like the SOLO, Omaha, and Easton Alpha.

The 2020 DeMarini Voood One in USA is a drop 10, 2 5/8 diameter barreled bat with a balanced swing and decent sized barrel. It didn't change much from the 2019 version other than a new end cap. But, we don't think the X14 alloy was adjusted enough from last year to make it perform better in terms of performance. It works well for the smaller player looking for lots of bat speed but doesn't see the pitch speed that will really ring the hands. It's a great value buy if you can find it for the right price.
