Hitman Assassin
« on: January 17, 2018, 05:36:58 AM »

Some on here already know that i was in the process of purchasing a custom bat from Hitman.

Originally the youtube vids got my attention but a visit sealed the deal.

My bat arrived shortly after Chrissy but ive been on holidays so this is my first chance to post up.

Havent used the bat in a game yet, first week back the league called off the game due to heat and last week it rained 20 overs in (bloody Melbourne). I will post up my opinion once I use it in a game.

Here's my feedback on purchase:
Positives - awesome customer service, prompt response to any query and never felt pressured to buy at any point. allowed me to pay half up front (to go ahead with build) and balance once bat is finished and delivered (im skeptical about paying for something online before receiving it). very patient and explained everything in great detail.
Negatives - forgot tape at base of grip and shoe goo despite requesting this at time of sale. not impressed with how the rear sticker was applied, couple of bubbles. not a big deal I know but this was a very expensive bat (for me), in my opinion a bit more care should have been taken when applying the sticker.

Here are some photo's, as mentioned in my previous posts its not a pretty bat, i picked this based on ping and pickup. also because its not 'grainy' which I didnt want in a bat. from my research the more grains a bat has the shorter the life expectancy.

Agreed - can't even look at the rest of the blade if the handle is looking that wonky

Aesthetically there isn't much I like about that atall - but each to their own. Performance must be A1!
