Little late for the start of the season but here is 2021's kit!









Bats
GM Maestro (B3 1271 edited by Ed Garrard, simply dropped the shoulders an inch) 2lb 10. Stunning bat!
Slaz v100 (Mongoose Cor 3) 2lb 11. Its a big bit of wood!
Slaz retro V12 - one of the original batch made by DF. Not part of numbered release however, again a top bat!
G&F technique bat- 2lb 8 unreal ping and number of grains, but it must have been one heavy cleft to start with.

Pads GM OLE 2019 release?
Gloves
GM OLE x 2 (different years)
Newbery Kudos (black)

Lid - still rocking a Masuri Ti with moveable grill.

Thigh pads- kook pro release from 2014.

SPIKES

Batting shoes- Adidas Adizero Ubersonic 3 Ltd Edition (Edberg)
Bowling shoes- Adidas Predators 19.1 White outs.

Bonus Content (How good do these look!)

Nice kit.
Love these GM stickers!
Had to choose between Maestro and Diamond, when they came out, bought Diamond, for it's revolutionary profile and it's top grade willow, but always felt more for Maestro!

Not posted one of these for a few years. Working from home and the wife at work has given me a good excuse to get all the kit out.



Bats

Vulcan. The one with the face showing is absolutely incredible! Made for a player in New Zealand who plays for Central Stags - he went for another which freed this up. Could well be the best bat I ever own

Pads

Adidas Adipure - really nice, leather instep, all cane. Black straps so hopefully the straps stay a nice colour

Sovereign - Round cane, Robinson made. Great pads

Gloves

Adidas from Online Stockists, Sovereign to match the pads and Vulcan to go with the bats.

Helmet

Shrey Masterclass Air

Thigh pads

Custom made Remfry. Spoke to Luke about getting one made which was a couple of CM shorter than his standard ones, no problem at all and fits like a dream

Spikes

Spiked up Asics runners

Love the minimalist look of those bats.

Who's the player from the Stags if you're allowed to say?

It's a quiet day in South Wales and after taking some pictures of my kit (which couldn't ever possibly rival Chad's piano backdrop) I thought I'd let you know about the latest kit I've acquired.

Really delighted with some recent pickups over the last month or two. Fully taken advantage of some clearance sales and offers so now I'm ready for the 2022 season, minus a couple of bits and bobs like helmet and bag, but who knows what Black Friday might throw up?!

I am midway through knocking in the Scott, so will provide a separate review when I get an idea of performance against a cricket ball and not just hours of whacking with a mallet. I'll try to include some specs as well. What I can announce, however, is how much of a delight the two batmakers were to deal with. Nothing but overwhelming levels of service, so thank you both.

The bats



In short, the Scott is beautifully finished, feels lovely in the hands and has a great pickup. The Willow & Wand feels incredible off the mallet and the handle feels just right in my hands, which is brilliant, considering it was an online purchase. I am really impressed with the stickering for both bats too. They feel like high quality stickers and are clean and simple. The Willow & Wand sticker has a lovely effect in sunlight.

The softs



The Red Ink pads were an absolute bargain at 30GBP. The design is traditional, they arent particularly heavy either and the branding isn't in your face. The feel comfortable to wear too, what more could I ask for?!

The gloves I bought for 40GBP after getting into contact with Jonny. The leather is Pittard and the design is nice and simple, again. I like my softs to be traditional, not too glaring in terms of colour. Even Gray Nicholls checkered pattern is a bit much for me. The gloves feel lovely on the hand, I haven't got the biggest mitts so there is a little bit of space inside the glove.

I'm sure the protection on these products is more than adequate for the quality of cricket I play, so no need to talk about that.

In summary, some lovely new pieces from members of the forum and overwhelmed by the quality of gear  :D

Theres something very satisfying as a consumer, buying from a small brand, and even more so when that brand is part of a small community.

The fact of the matter is that without discovering CBF, I wouldnt have caught whiff of these brands, but in doing so Ive managed to grab some great bargains of high quality. Everyones a winner!
