MCC Regularions -User Experience
« on: December 31, 2017, 04:23:33 PM »

So,
  The new MCC rules are in place. What are everyones views on the bats being produced by any or all brands now? Are we seeing essentially the same or are we seeing more full profiles at Luther widths due to not being able to build super big bats..

It annoys me, if Im honest. I feel it makes no difference to the cricket actually played and it means that almost all bat shapes are very similar.

It used to be a challenge to see how big you could go and being able to go nuts with bat shapes was really exciting. Now though its become massively restricted which is rubbish.

Kippax especially used to make incredibly huge bats, and now, its just another normal shape and size. Boring.

Has noone seen the sixes Gayle has hit since the regulations? Huge.

Regulations have done (No Swearing Please) all.

Regulation gave nothing to do with the current six hitting.

Its once again a rule bought into force without the proper people asked do listen to.

I haven't bought a bat this winter and don't Intend to.


Infact I made myself a small rule. If I see any manufacturer on twitter showing off there "bat gauge" I won't buy a bat from them again.

Total joke of a reg

Boycott was still winging about big bats on commentary the other day
Dinosaurs like him that's responsible for this stupidity

What next? Limit bat speed? Bicep size? Etc

Barry Richards is still banging on about bats being too big.
He wants 35mm edges as a maximum.

I fail to see how a thinner edge will stop a ball travelling so far when middled though...

I was more thinking about what brands are offering tbh rather than the rights or wrongs of the regulation. Are we seeing more bats which are fuller in profile at lighter weights? Are we seeing that nothing has changed ? Are brands getting more and more alike ? Stuff like that

So, Ive noticed that far more bats are coming out at 2.7/8/9 range which are full profile. Hence why i asked what others experience was. I went in to a retailer a week or so ago and there didnt appear to be much difference and still more 2.11/12/13 weight bats.

For me , gn oz changes is the most depressing thing .
Also , now I'm not nearly as interested in as many brands/shapes etc as so much just seem samey .
However,  the regs have altered what i would look for now....future purchases will be more about coverage /elongated sweetspots etc . Ie / gn scoop 17 and b3 beluga would be the two bats I'd want if buying today .

The only time a bat gauge will be used by me is too make sure The Bats used by my Proffesional Players are Lrgal for them .
Other than that when ever possible the biggest and lightest Clefts will be sourced to make the biggest profiles possible and as for bats ranging from size 0-6 we will be turning out as many possible LAMINATES as this is now possible  and legal with MCC approval this has been introduced to bring the costs down for Junior Players watch these little bats ping
