Hell4Leather / Re: Hellfire Stickers?

The reason most places stopped doing this was even when a genuine bat was owned the stickers would be sent and ended up elsewhere
Really? That's pretty crap. Ruins it for the people who want them for legitimate reasons! I'll wait and see what the guys come back with.

Thanks for the responses, some interesting decisions to be made...

The red ink option sounds very appealing

Again, it is your mindset. You are conditioned to accept inferior service and products with poo standards.

Jesus Christ.

Feeling smug up there in your ivory tower are we.

Started the year at 93.7kg and down so 90.4 at weigh in this evening and lost just under an inch from my stomach with slight increase in bicep and calf sizes so basically to much weights. Going to just focus on a cardio for the next 6 weeks with very light free weights and lots of core work.

Diet is now a lot better with a 50% reduction in sugar 25% reduction in portion sizes. Certainly more work preparing meals and lunches now but will be worth it come wddding day and honeymoon pics

@InternalTraining but you do "break in" all the new things you've listed?

While not leaving a new phone for 6 months, you set up your apps etc so it performs the tasked you want. A new suit will be great, but they are more comfortable after you've worn them a few times and broken in a few of the fibres in the fabric so it's more "moulded" to you.

HAHAHHAHAA! You must be joking. :D :D :D You wear suits made from cardboard!? :D I've never had to "break-in" my suits. I can't believe you break-in your suits. I just can't stop laughing. :D :D :D

I think the car analogy works very well. If you bought something new from the showroom you wouldn't drive it off the forecourt with the tachometer bouncing off the red line, would you?
. I'd drive the car immediately as I intend to - places, events, etc. No oiling, no knocking equivalent necessary. What you are describing is a consumer mindset which has hobbled the bat making industry. Maybe, that is how you think about consumer products, not most people I know. I am not being facetious here.

Equally if you bought a new top of the range bat you'd prepare it for match use, not take it out of the packet and try to hit the new ball into the next county from ball one.
Very little. XP-80 2000 got very little knocking from me and it was good to go. My big Warners have edges rolled by a "ostrich bone" by Bob Mueleman himself. Those bats are so big, you'd be insane to knock them. Again, it is your mindset. You are conditioned to accept inferior service and products with poo standards.

We are using my old Blueroom (that split and Tom Line fixed) and My Chase, both are under 2.6 now.

@jblowe - Your Majesty, do you use a particularly light bat for this or just a normal one?
