I have just this morning had the pleasure of witnessing - up close and personal - some Red Ink beauties that await knocking in from Bilal and myself.  I have to say, John, they're lovely bats, congratulations on all your hard work! What's with the one with the tiny, thick handle, though? As this is my first sample of Red Ink, and the only three bats of theirs I've ever seen, I'd say my knowledge of their range is limited, but if a trend has started to emerge it's that they're all very concave.  I would therefore recommend trying something like the Mjolnir or the Halo / Flare and do something with no concaving at all.  Although concaving is very much in fashion at the moment, I think that as a start-up, boutique bat maker, you need to have something for everyone to give yourself the best chance of establishing a broad and varied customer base, so would highly recommend something with smaller edges and less / no concaving...

its for a friend of mine. he pretty much strangles the shoulder/base of the handle so wanted a mini one to stop the butt end hitting his wrists. he also likes 3 grips on it hence why its short and fat.

concaving on them  ranges. the pyro shapes do  have a bit of concaving, the LE is slightly less.
glad you like them. hope you enjoy knocking them in.

i am leaning towards a non concaved bat. wether that be completely traditional with thin edges and higher spine or the more modern flare style bat im  unsure at the moment. i did make a copy for a friend of mine. he had an old classic bat traditonal shape bat. must admit i did enjoy making that one

Do these have a decent bow Pete? I haven't seen one upclose so don't know but I think you would need a significant bow to make the bat pick up well!!


I took lots of photos at the last Lords Trade Show, so close up pics of the M&H Master are:

Thanks Pete, not only are you a owner of some lovely bats but also lovely pics of lovely bats :)...

might be camera angle or my eyes but doesn't look like a lot of bow on these bats...Tour looks better than M&H to me...

Think your prayers could be answered soon as a certain company will be making this/similar shape/profile soon

Really? Any clues?  ;)
