Thank you.

There was no structural damage to it, not used a great deal, just was in a scruffy condition - missing or scuffed labels, uneven face where I had removed the face sheet and resulting from a wet weather match, dirty and worn grip.

It was the very top of the Salix range when it was made, prior to the Players and Finite being added.

Felt, therefore, it was worthwhile to restoring to an as new condition, which I feel it has. Plus a new grip and anti-scuff fitted both of which are top quality.

I can confirm this is indeed a lovey bat, Alan you kept it in amazing condition. Was also good to meet you yesterday mate, another forum member with a face ticked off the list.

Good to meet you, too, Chris.

Salix an appropriate location to do so.

Enjoyed the opportunity to compare the bat range on display, both Salix and HitsHard.

They all looked impressive, regardless of their grade and price.

Pleased to find some what are nowadays retro Pod One pads too, they are good quality and fit well.

Will picture my Salix kit / HitsHard bat together soon.

Great finish. Wish I could get mine looking that clean and natural. That's craftsmanship.

Not quite an immediate "before", this is it though in a used condition, second from the left.



Refurb was cosmetic, there was no damage to the bat.


That's a nice collection you've got there mate. The Warsop on the far right seems quite chunky!

Thank you, that picture was from early 2013.

Only the Salix and Kahuna Players will still be with me this season.

The Kahuna far left is closing on ebay soon.

The 5 others have all been sold already.

The Warsop weighed in at 3lb 6oz and is in the hands of another Forum member nowadays.

Yes, that isn't in the picture though, was referring to those only in that the line up.

Will this week post some photographs of the current streamlined portfolio, which will indeed include the GN Powerbow Strauss LE.

That Warsop looks nice, any chance of a profile picture mate?
