It's no secret we are big fans of the Axe handled bat. And in Fastpitch, where ultra fast hands and time in the zone are often more important than raw power, the 2015 Axe Avenge Fastpitch makes at least as much sense, if not much more, than any bat in the space. Every fastpitch hitter looking for a performance two-piece composite with a balanced swing weight should have the 2015 Axe Avenge on their short list. We've reviewed a lot of Axe bats on this blog site. We first took a look at the BBCOR Axe Avenge, then the Axe Phenom, Elite and Element. We also looked at the Slow Pitch Softball Axe bats and then a shout-out to the T-ball bats (which we think are fantastic).
When I first picked up an Axe Avenge bat, several months ago now, I held it backward. I also had serious reservations. But what I quickly found is that it works. No really, it does. (Especially if you hold it the right way). The ax-shaped handle allows your hands to come inside the ball faster which gives you three distinct advantages in hitting a softball:
The 2015 Axe Avenge Fastpitch bat, like other Avenge bats, is a two piece composite bat with a moderate swing weight. The bat's two pieces make for a smooth feel on any hit and butter bombs on full contact. Further, the bat is balanced in its swing weight which makes it an applicable bat to the largest market of hitters. The bat's proprietary ax shaped handle can increase swing speed, time in the zone and reaction time. All of these benefits improve batted ball speed and, hence, games won.
