Ping tests are a strong one, although some (Aldred/IJC) can be as amusing as they are annoying.

Bat reviewers banging on at length about stickers, do they get Youtube confused with the radio?

Bat reviewers talking about how many ounces the bat picks up under its' actual weight.

Reviewers talking about irrelevant details - see above re. stickers, also branded zips, the precise brand and model of gloves they've put in a bag, etc. etc.

Just curious...if you are a seller making youtube videos to advertise and sell your products, how would you go about demonstrating that the bat does perform really well (apart from the ping test of course)...what do you think would convince a buyer?

Thickness at toe
Pickup index
The Pro's name it definitely came from.

Slightly off-topic (my bad). Further to your query, can you actually judge how well a bat will perform without it being fully knocked/played in? And thus is it even relevant to mention this during a video review?

Whatever happened to that chap who was going to set up a scientific rig to measure Ping? I was really looking forward to that, now that I've just remembered that I was.

Oh. And whacking yourself on the pads with a mallet. I can't remember the last time I saw a 1kg mallet come out of the bowlers hand. I bet it was a googly though.

- Bats that are 'performance free' and don't have a bow.
- Late arrivers.
- Cry babies.

What shouldn't really do, but really grinds your gears?

Currently, for me, it is youtube reviewers demonstrating 'ping' by belting the ball off their ceiling, as if somehow those of us watching will think that the bats a cannon, rather than that they are just hitting the ball harder than most people do when just knocking a ball up on a bat.

Release your rage...

Unfortunately, bat ping/performance "measurements" (as they currently stand) are a complete crap shoot because no scientific factors are used to measure performance. There are three factors that ought to be part of every bat's dimensional spec. and bat makers ought to provide that information. Reciprocally, customers need to demand and understand factors that truly makes a bat perform for them rather than cosmetic factors.

That would be the plank on the end of the bat then  ;)  :D People buying bats need to understand buying blind online will always be a gamble and nothing beats getting them in the hands. No numbers can compensate for that and an average "ping" bat that feels perfect will do better than a "pingy" bat that the user can't find the middle of IMO
