there are so many theories that abound as to how to press, prepare and treat a bat.  In Oz, it differs not just from state to state, but from area to area (read, retailer to retailer) and it must be the same wherever cricket is played.  the theories have been evolved from accumulations of information over generations and the end result is that there is no one theory that ends the argument.  you can however be sure that if the bat is being supported by a lump of foam or an old bed spread, if the roller is not an exact match to the face of the bat and if the pressure being applied cannot be measured, the result will be a mystery!
Learning from history and sudying data gained from testing must be a plus.

and apart from pressed more or less lets be honest none of us know what were talking about in truth

Andy hits the nail on the head every time in the real world i know figures banded about but not sure what the figures mean and do.

Also there different willow needing different pressing and understanding willow once again i now the end result a good bat but not what goes behind it if i'am totally honest.

In theory i know stuff but do not know how the puzzle fits and until or if i get into it in the future do not care any more.
