we tend to pick clefts that are grade one or very close to grade one then we also pick some that we think would be good for our pros. and yes you can press most bats to make good performance the odd one we just give away to a friend or throw away if we feel that its not good enough but not done that in well over a year now

Can we be friends?  :) if not, then where is the throw away bin  :D

And thank you for answering my questions. I assume this means your guarantee performance!!

we try to guarantee performance but can not always keep everyone happy as everyone has a different opinion i make all bats as if i was making it for my self so every bat gets great amount of attention.

we press all looking clefts we still have glamours that performance is good not saying any of our bats are bad just sometimes the ugly bats seem to be more responsive we tend to find that we get most of our lighter and better performing bats are between 6-8 grains and would probably be classed as a grade 2/3 if grading in cleft form. all grains on a bat really tells you is how old the tree is and generally the more grains the heavier the bat. you can go buy a bat from a retail shop that might be 10+ grains pay 500 for a bat that could be a plank and majority theses days are made in india and Pakistan and ship over for cheap and mass production.

Can vouch for that I've just been using wainwright's bat during my session with him today and it's 7 grains pretty light and huge. Also the more grains the more weight would make sense if I compared my bats to that logic

genuinely the more grains just means the older the tree and that normally makes the wood more dense so it will be heavier, people thinks more grains makes it perform better but like i say you could ask 10 different people about what makes the best bats and all 10 could give you a different answer but what we seem to be doing over the last two years seems to be working well.

Hats off to whoever it is at Kippax answering all these questions! Really interesting discussion this, thank you. Next time I'm up north I'll be sure to drop in.

Great to see your bats on TV by the way.  Hope that sales are going on the right direction.

Don't get me wrong, I do like a nice looking bat but it really isn't the number one factor for me. I've got a few bats that wouldn't conform to everyone's idea of a good looker but when I picked them up the balance was perfect and they go like trains. That's all I need.

I've had loads of opposition come up and tell me that the bat im using sounds like a cannon, I'm yet to have someone come up to me and comment on the looks
