Battle Ax Sports bats are crafted from start to finish right here in the USA!  Created from Hand-Split, A Grade - Maple, Birch, and Ash wood.  The raw materials are hand selected, cut, sanded, “boned” to compress the grains adding durability and pop, and finished to the highest standards of quality!



Bat Barrels

We advertise our bats according to the following barrel sizes:

  • Small  –  Less weight offering better speed and control.  Hitting surface area is smaller.

  • Medium  –  Balanced for speed, control, and power.  Suitable for pretty much any style of swing.

  • Large  –  For the stronger hitter looking for that power punch!  Hitting surface area is bigger.



Bat Handles

We advertise our bats according to the following handle sizes:

  • Thick  –  More durable and provide more control.

  • Medium  –  Balance between thicker and thinner handles.

  • Thin  –  Provides a nice whip action for increased barrel velocity through the zone.  (Note:  the thinner the handle, the higher the risk of breaking)



Bat Knobs

We advertise our bats according to the following knob sizes:

  • Standard  –  As described, the standard rounded shape to keep your hands from slipping.

  • Flared  –  Designed with the intent to increase comfort through a gentler roll in the hands.

  • Cone  –  Designed for the player dealing with hand pain/injury (such as bruising) and looking for an alternative.



Bat Weight

We offer our bats in several different weight variations.  We commonly refer to this as the length to weight differential.


For Example:

If you were to order an ink dot series at 33" length and want a -3 weight differential:

33 – 3 = 30 oz

The bat will weigh 30 oz ± 0.5 oz


There are several factors in considering your bat's weight:

  • The most popular weight for adults is the -3

  • Youth bat models are usually -4 to -6     

  • Lighter bat weights can be swung faster and with more control

  • Heavier bat weights are generally more durable and provide more pop to add distance.

  • A bat that is too heavy can be uncomfortable, harm swing mechanics, and even cause injury.



Types of Wood

  • Maple  –  The most popular and commonly used wood by the pros due to its hardness and density.  Maple has a tight grain structure (less visible) that is less susceptible to flaking or separation of grain and provides a superior hardness that makes the ball fly off the bat.

  • Birch  –  A stellar alternative that is more flexible and nearly as hard as maple.  An interesting characteristic to birch is that it has been said that the surface hardness increases through use.  Birch offers superior durability and safer breaks.

  • Ash  –  Recommended for the more skilled wood hitter.  Old school bats were almost exclusively ash providing some nice benefits for hitters.




Cupping is the hollowing of the bat barrel for balance purposes.  The majority of hitters want their bat cupped (except softball bats).
