2023 Axe Avenge Pro Slowpitch USSSA Flared Knob Review
Axe has listened! What they have come out with for their new Slowpitch Softball Bats is something truly revolutionary! Prior to the all new 2023 Axe Avenge Pro Flared Slowpitch Bat, most slowpitch players weren’t very fond of the Axe handle as a common style of slowpitch grip is dropping the pinky below the knob or overlapping hands. Axe came up with a great solution to this for their bats and redesigned the knob completely! The new flared knob has a tapered handle, a more rounded knob and a less dramatic “Axe handle” style. These changes while still providing all of the safety and performance benefits the original Axe handle provides gives the player a unique experience that is a must try!
Axe’s all-new Flared Knob is the perfect transition from a rounded knob to an Axe for all Slowpitch players. You get just the right amount of Axe advantage, with the familiar feels of a rounded knob.
The Flared taper design feels almost natural, promotes all styles of grip, and frees your swing for max speed, whip, and ultimate performance. There is no transition period between round knob to Axe handles. No restrictions. Just Grip it and go. Paired with the hottest, lowest compression USSSA 240 barrel and you have one of THE best bats in Slowpitch. Period.

Here at Headbanger Sports we understand that making the switch to an Axe bat can feel a little … uncomfortable, we hear it alot. It’s not the same as a traditional bat. But one thing to remember, MLB superstars are swinging the Axe. Mookie Betts, George Springer and Kris Bryant are just a select few who have all switched over to Axe bats and never regretted the change. Besides the fact more and more MLB players are turning towards swinging Axe, the Axe handle (yes, including the new flared knob!) promotes safety, faster swing speeds and more control. If you were hesitant before, fear no more as the new Flared knob is a perfect transition. There's no need for a transition period. No adjusting your grip. No restrictions. Just pick up the bat, grip it and go. This will be one of the greatest bats you have ever swung, period.
