2 Questions
« on: January 01, 2010, 05:30:00 PM »

Hi as ive already stated before, im going to M&H to have a bat made up for me. I know there are two batmakers there, (Nick and Rob) which one is supposed to be the better podshaver??

Secondly i was after a counterbalance for a bat 3-4 ounces. i have heard that you can get them like a coin shaped disc which can be screwed to the handle top. does anyone know where i can get one of these??

help much appreciated/
thanks guys

newbery done a bat with a counter balance in the 80s .you can use lead tape wrapped around the top of the handle.

You wouldnt want 3oz of lead tape in my view that would be ridiculous, would mess up the balance

A single grip rolled up works quite well and that cant weigh much more than 1oz

cut bits of grip up into 1 inch sections and add them one over the other to the top of the handle, or use a lot of fibre tape

Yep, Rob is supposedly the better batmaker, well hes been making bats for longer. Let us know how you get on though. Always interesting to go and watch bats being made....

Instead of using lead tape just use a strip of normal lead, is much heavier than the tape so you wont need much and therefore reduce the size of the 'bulb' at the top of the handle. Lead strip should add 2oz at least
