Thanks for the advice on the Vitas sale fellas. Picked up a Focus bat, which looks a bargain,  so looking forward to getting it. Picked up some unused H4L gloves on eBay cheap and a few other bits too so nearly there.

On another note, apart from the safety aspect is there any other benefit of the 2 bar grill on the Masuri helmets? Does it widen the viewing area at all?

No difference just pushes the ball up and into the visor

The theory is that the top two bars line up in your eyeline so effectively you don't see the top one, widening the view. Don't know how much difference it actually makes though as haven't worn one.

so does it offer a better viewing area than the standard grill, or just the same but with supposed better protection?

Thanks again for the advice. I'm in Leeds and I definitely like to see the bat, so have been to a few shops to get an idea. I've always had a light bat/pick up, as just can't can't use a heavy bat. Some of the Gray Nic ones from Vitas looked nice yesterday, but without being there to see them in the flesh its difficult to say.

How about a trip down to Nottingham and see bats being made and get a better understanding of what you are after? Worth the hour or so's travel!

We also have some bundle deals available - https://b3cricket.com/cricket-gear/buy-cricket-bundle-deals/adult-cricket-bundle-deal/

Thanks David, appreciate the offer but I'm awaiting delivery of a bat now, which i think will be suitable.  i have picked up a few other bits too, so only really now only looking at a new lid. I've had whole new kit to buy, so had to shop in the sales! The bats look great tho.

Good review Ajay. Looks like a nice shape, and very good for a G3.

Thank you @GoodLeave . i was bit nervous but video came along nice i think.

When i asked the guy for bat i mentioned to him that i am not bothered about the look but performance is what i am after. He offered me this bat off their facebook page.

I took the plunge due to it was not expensive at all and now i am very happy with it. I haven't used it in nets or match yet but optimistic that it will perform well due to its current  response.
