525mm Blade Length Bats
« on: September 14, 2021, 05:15:23 PM »

Bit of a niche question but does anyone know of any other bats besides the GM Kaha that were made as standard with a 525mm long blade?

Have had a fair few bats made up in this length and a huge fan of it but haven't found many examples of stock bats with the blade shortened as much as 3cm. Hoping CBF's collective wisdom can satisfy my curiosity!

What was a Joker / B20 blade length?  They were full length Mens SH including the longer handle?

Think the Joker is one inch shorter, one inch longer - so very close but not quite a 525mm length! Not a clue on the B20...

I have 2 Jokers. Both are more than an inch shorter. Ditto with original blank bats b20.

Any chance you could grab your measuring tape and see what they come in at?

The original Mongoose CoR3 in 2009, up until about 2012 was 2" shorter.

Thanks mate, so my rudimentary maths says about 50mm shorter?

@Jimbo , I posted pictures of some bats with shorter blades. Search feature of this forum just doesn't work - very hard to find old posts with key words "size 6" or "size 3".

If you zoom in, there is a tape measure next to the bats.

Thanks mate, believe I've seen those before. I'm specifically trying to find out if the 3cm shorter blade had been done more widely as it's become a bit of a favourite of mine.

The Blitz is close to what you are seeking. Maybe an older CA. I will compare some.
