Gloves / Re: Split fingers vs Sausage fingers
« Last post by Mfarank on Today at 03:22:43 AM »
You have to remember that the gloves are all you've got between a hard ball (in this case travelling at speed) and a hard handle.

No matter how good the protection is, its likely to hurt if you get hit on a finger as this is the area of the glove with the least padding to disperse the impact.

Sausage fingers will provide better impact dispersion than splits, so you could say they offer better protection
Makes sense. Cheers mate

I've been looking at the Neon range from last season thinking it looked amazing. The Neon and Diamond this year look stunning! Love the colour schemes (partly as they match my softs) and I'm sure that if I'm buying this season that GM will have my custom. My previous GM is still going strong five years after repair so I'd have no qualms, just whether I have the money! Well done all at GM!

How did Laver gowith replicating the Scat thick handle?
Not to bad, she was a little skinny on the sides for my big paws but that was
fixed with some cloth tape.

At risk of getting banned from the forum I would have to say that I donít get it. These Screaming Cats do nothing for me. Neither does the GM Purist.
Though I do appreciate the skill involved in copying a shape that well with only photos to go on.
I thought the same when I was looking at buying my first Cat. You hear people talk about pick-up and balance of a bat
and how it feels lighter in the hand than it actually is, these are the perfect example and with a massive middle as well.

Bat Making / Re: Narrow Grain vs Wide Grain - Amateur Science

This is brilliant Justin!

I still believe pressing has a massive part to play. My bat is a ĎSussexí made one, it pinged from the word go and only has 6 grains.

And letís not even start on butterflies!  (How did yours end up at the end of the season @JK Lewis

Good news, it survived completely intact. Less good news, the boss still won't let me hang it above the fireplace.

None and your not helping  :)

Got 3 in the last match.

With the new fielding restrictions, short boundaries and more aggressive batsmen seamers on flat decks are on a hiding to nothing

Sorry! Was a genuine question I hadnít seen the scorecard!


Although Iíve just seen the highlights, Morgan is looking rather trim seems to have been working hard in the gym!
