BAT 4 - Matrrixx Rareblue

This is a huge bat which is massive all over!
It weighs in at a hefty 3lb exactly, fully dressed with it's sparkling labels and with 2 decent grips.
The pickup is ok - I would call it a medium pickup.
Edges are just over 40mm and even the toe is over 25mm.
It has 9/10 ruler straight grains and looks lush quality - not surprising considering what they charge full price for these bats!

These seem to be rare bats so it's nice to have one in my collection.............
Enjoy the photos which will follow

there is a slight bow, but it's a beautifully clean and huge stunning piece of willow!
Not sure if I'll use it this season as the Black Cat is an absolute gem! But am sure I'll use it at some point!  ;)

Only 4 down and loads more to come yet, including Laver & Woods, Screaming Cats, and Pro bats.
But I think the Magnum will still be your fave whatever comes - just shows you that every person will have their own favourite.

Thanks Mars - it's a great looking bat, and feels like a monster - as if it would launch any ball into orbit!
But still wouldn't pay the RRP for it!

Anyway, more bats to follow soon.

BAT 5 - Lekka RDX Blue

This bat weighs 2'11 with 2 large grips, so 2'9/10 with a single grip.
As you will see from the pics, the 11/12 grains look very nice indeed.
The pick-up and balance feel very good! The 30mm edges are not massive but that doesn't matter too much as it's a lovely bat - good value too!
Pics to follow...................
