As spring has sprung, and we have a glorious sunny morning down here on the south coast, I thought I would unbox a few of the bats in my collection and get some photos of them. Unfortunately, my photography skills are nothing compared to some on here, but I thought I would share some photos of a Gunn & Moore Maxi Original I picked up recently. On the scales, this one comes in at 2lb 14oz, but with a lovely thick oval handle, it picks up really well.

The photos have come out a little 'sun kissed', but still show off one of my favourite bats in excellent condition!

As it is Friday, I thought I would post a couple of photos of a bat that arrived this morning. Having collected and stupidly sold the set a few years ago, I was back on the hunt and I have managed to pick up two or three of the fibreglass/graphite range in the last month or so. I will do some photos of them all once they have arrived and I have tided them up, but for the time being, enjoy!

Yeah, I was always envious of people with V100, V500 or V600 5 Star or Ultimate bats!

A couple of my 2021/22 purchases.  I'm amazed at the increase in what bats are going for in Australia.  Easily twice what they were going for a year or so ago.

I never see V Carribeans or Kookaburra Supremes come up.  I wanted the older style Supreme (Dean Jones) but I'll make do with this one for now..

Just wondered if anyone has idea on the year that these bats were released?  Thanks

The Magnum has a lot of signatures on but only in biro and unfortunately no idea who they are.
