@Shinpathy - If my memory serves right, you have some stunning SG player edition cricket bats. Why would you want these Hitman bats? :D

Absolutely no need  :D

Last season we had a guy turn up to training who is selling Hitman bats, is a mate of one of the players at my club. Nice bloke and all and some of the bats looked really nice, but his claim was that some of them were reserved for Kumar Sangakkara and Dwayne Bravo, which I found a bit hard to believe and there was no way he could authenticate that...

@Over Gully - There is simply no way to confirm if the bat was indeed made for Sangakarra or Bravo. This is the basis for all these bogus sellers. Nowadays if someone comes to me and says this is a Pro bat, I simply thank them for showing it to me and walk away from the sale  :D

didnt get a chance to post up yesterday.

so as planned visited hitman's home base over the weekend.

i was greeted by someone truly passionate about cricket and specifically cricket bats.

so ryan had 3-4 he shortlisted based on my requirements. All of which were amazing bits of wood. I felt the pickup and ping of each of them, all of them had more response than ive ever felt before (and have had a few G1 bats in my time). Yes its easy to post up big claims online but the feel has me 100% sold! seriously with very little bat movement the ball was just flying off these sticks and it had such a soft feeling through the handle.

i spoke to ryan for a good hour and never felt rushed through any of it. im not well off financially so a bat costing this much is a big purchase for me. After meeting and testing it was a no brainer. I picked the bat which i felt was was right and performance like ive never seen before and told him to get it ready, ryan said he will hand knock it in for 15 hours and put on all the protection i need (extratec and fibre tape on) plus some shoe goo and a bat cover is also included. I dont expect to see the bat before chrissy but ill put up some pics when I get it.

Rough description is 2.8 in weight, SH, mid to low sweet spot and duck billed shape.

Only complaint i have is there is a small blemish in the willow on the face of the bat but i have to remember performance is more important than looks!

sounds very much like my personal dealings with ryan.

being in Tasmania it didn't leave me much option but to trust the reviews/feedback and his selection.

i was keen on a relatively light stick and we ended up agreeing on this...i should have it in my hands by next week :)

I'm not exactly sure how Ryan's pricing reflects generally...but the bat I purchased is one of the lower end models...certainly not a premium option...
