Which stickers do you prefer? Do you need a kit bag?

I've been to kippax today - I'll post some pics later (shape etc). Big old bats for the weight

For me H4L just as I don't like the wavex handle on Kippax bats but both that I used for a semi decent length of time performed very very well

Both are nice bats.

I have been to Kippax today and they have a good selection in (a few less than they had before I arrived). They are indeed big bats for the weight and have a concave and full profile option depending on your preference.

H4L make good bats, all the ones that I have had in my hands have been spot on and sometimes if you are lucky you get a lower grade stunner.

This is probably no help to you whatsoever and Im sure you would be happy either way, or with both.

H4L give more options if you are on a budget/care less about the grade.

@wally - I might tilt you a bit here. Go with Kippax. Wavex handle with double chevron grip feels like a traditional round handle.

I would go with h4l as they have a profile to suit most people with kippax your a bit limited profile wise performance on both bats will be good but I think matt presses a better bat but that's just my opinion

None, unless you close your eyes and pick each at a time, to see which one feels easy to maneuver in hands. It's about pick and feel, and not the stickers, IMO.
