Do you have to break in this bat? If so how?
The 2018 Axe Elite -5 USA Baseball Bat: L134F features a hybrid design. This means that the barrel features alloy material. Alloy bats will not require a break-in period, and will be at its peak performance right out of the wrapper.
Wonâ€™t hitting the same spot on the bat wear it out? The bat handle doesn't allow you to rotate it between hits right?
Yes, the unique Axe handle does cause you to hit the ball on the same area of the bat each time. Axe specifically designs the bat to be able to handle this however.
My son is 13 playing middle school, not sure what league that falls into. I see that this has a -5 how does that compare to a -8?
I always recommend checking with a coach or league official to confirm what bat certification you need to be legal. Typically, players in middle school leagues or youth leagues will be required to swing USA bats like the 2018 Axe Elite -5 USA Baseball Bat: L134F. On the other side of things, players in travel ball tournaments or travel games will be approved to swing USSSA 1.15 BPF certified bats. The USSSA version of the Axe Elite is the 2018 Axe Elite -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: L133F. Both of these bats feature a -5 drop weight which will be 3 ounces heavier than a -8 bat.

Axe baseball bats are for the bold! For the 2018 season, the Elite series is one of the most durable models on the market. It all starts with the military grade Mantic alloy barrel construction that results in the strongest and most explosive bat that Axe has ever created. This two-piece, hybrid design combines the traditional sound of alloy with the vibration dampening effects of a composite handle. With more whip, less negative feedback in the hands, and an end loaded swing weight, the Elite baseball bats are recommended for power hitters who want to take their swing to the next level. An engineered hitting zone extends the sweet spot while maximizing power to the entire 270-degree contact area, so you'll never need to rotate your barrel for durability -- a benefit you only get by swinging an Axe handle. Not only are you maximizing bat speed and increasing control during every at bat with an Axe handle, but you will be reducing the risk of injury as well. On the other end, a composite HyperWhip end cap extends the barrel length, reduces unnecessary weight, and allows for increased swing speeds. Last, but certainly not least, the innovative Endogrid technology absorbs all shock to the bottom hand for a smooth, comfortable feel on contact. Axe: Make The Switch!
This Axe Elite USA baseball bat (L134F) features a 2 5/8-inch barrel diameter, a drop 5 length to weight ratio, and the USABat certification which makes it approved for play in AABC, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth, Little League, and Pony.

Axe Handle Scientifically Proven Benefits
Better Bat Control - High-speed video reveals a "hammering" motion from the traditional round knob. The Axe handle stabilizes the grip, increasing barrel control.
More Power & Bat Speed - Range of motion is increased and tension is reduced in the hands, resulting in greater power transfer and more bat speed.
Enhanced Comfort - The Axe handle is ergonomically designed to fit naturally in the contour of your hand.
Reduces Injuries - Traditional handles put tremendous pressure on a single point of the hand, which contains the commonly broken Hamate bone. The flush backside of the Axe handle relieves this pressure.
