Bats / Re: Weight reduction

Do agree 4oz is a lot to remove  but having reduced bats by 4oz including down from 2lb 11 to 2lb 7 ounce  for myself and others without it being detrimental to the  bat  by removing the wood first of the toe and then  evenly off the back until  wearing gloves the bats pickup feels right in the hands if your bat has a full back or minimal concaving a batmaker should easily archive  your required bat weight.

Very nice. Am I correct in assuming the Lara 375 bats were still GNs?

Rahane added some gusto to the batting looked at ease scoring freely. India got issues at the top though. Both Rahul and Vijay look like walking wickets. They could well do with calling up another opener for Melbourne.

With regards to reverse swing the Indians didn't get any either. Outfields so far have been pretty lush

Thought India would get blown over today - looked like it with the openers failing again. Kohli saving them again

A tail so could see a collapse if one of these two go.

Again - no reverse swing for the Aussies, bit different to what we saw last year with it reversing after 30-40 overs

Looking at the photos you could lose a lot of weight from that toe - it looks so thick and almost unfinished.
That would change the pick up an awful lot so you may not need so much weight off as you think
That said Iíve had weight off an old GM Flare and it was never the same
A  bat makerís judgement is the optimum bat trying to get out of each cleft - if this cleft was destined to have made a massive bat at 2.7 it would already be one and it wouldnít have been quite so reasonably priced

Itís virtually impossible for even the most skilled bat maker to take 4oz out of a bat and still maintain the integrity of the bat. Send it back or sell it are your only options if youíre not going to use it Iím afraid.

Now first on his agenda is cancelling the 100.
Second on his agenda is appointing Farbrace to succeed Bayliss
Third is cost savings across the ECB to invest more in junior and "transition level" cricket. (This being 15-18year olds staying involved with the game as they move into men's cricket)

Unless youíre intending on turning it into a Harrow 4oz is a substantial amount of willow. If youíre still able to just return it then thatís your best bet imo

May be there is a drill hole, like a empty tunnel behind it, where they pulled out lots of fibers from the timber to make it light, and to cover the mark and put some naswaar color paint on top of gypsum coating?

Too much manufacturing effort for so little sale price no?  :D

I've had 2 ounces taken out of a bat and it was never the same
