Just received my butterfly, stain at the top and on the back but the face is clean just looks like your looking at it through frosted glass. Seems to ping well just quite a small and low middle, first go with it tonight in a corporate game where they tend to use awful balls. Very excited to see how it goes.

For your own sake I'd highly recommend not using a brand new bat in a game the same day you've received it, especially if the balls aren't good quality! There's a reason knocking in exists! :(

Apparently they come pre-prepared and have given it another 90 mins last evening just incase. Sheet and edge tape on and were good to go. 90 mins was probably the longest stint ive ever done knocking in but was a good evening of TV so headphones in and was all set

I think batting  with soft bottom hand should help you.

Thank you. I have already made the change even started using oval handle bat.

I noticed in nets it has helped me as i was smashing the ball nicely and i felt quite confident as well. ( i changed few other things too)

I think this may be the best bat i own and definitely the best value for money. The #1 might be struggling to get its place back when its returned from being repaired.

Thats great to hear! The feedback from the butterfly bats has been very good. For the price, they offer great value.

Current stocks are now all sold out. We have a new delivery in around 2 weeks with weights starting from 2.7. They tend to go up to 2.10 max although we have also requested some 3lbs models this time.

@VKS - have you got your new delivery of these in yet?  Love a good butterfly bat, so might try and get over to Ealing to check them out.

They are due in this afternoon. Both the standard ones we have had before, as well as the heavier ones that we are trying out for the 1st time.

You won't regret buying one mate, use mine in the nets all the time and a couple of 30-35 retired knocks in corporate games. Surprisingly mine has a very oval handle, i don't know if that's standard though.
