Bargain Hunts-ing - a Turbo Revolution
« on: August 08, 2016, 10:49:59 PM »

And another quick review.

I took delivery of this bat today, I haven't tapped it up yet and the pictures were taken just after oiling.

This was an eBay find that cost me 89.99 brand new! A Hunts County Turbo Revloution HPZ 900.
I have removed the factory grip and applied a white chevron over half a snake.

I haven't tapped this up yet, but it will need knocking in so I'll hopefully be able to comment on the performance of the bat once I start the process.

There are 6 grains, not perfectly straight or evenly spaced, but that doesn't bother me too much. There are a couple of hard bars on the face but no blemishes to write home about. The handle is a nice semi-oval that isn't too thick in the hands. The bat picks up very well for it's dead weight, mainly down to the high swell.

This is another traditional shape from Hunts, no huge edges but a high spine and minimal concaving, I love the contours of the profile towards the top of the blade.

The vital stats
Weight: 2lb11.875oz
Edge peak: 34mm
Edge at shoulder:13m
Edge at toe: 18mm
Toe thickest point: 25mm
Peak spine height: 61mm

Don't forget the hole drilled down the middle of the bat to reduce the weight!

I have heard of this before, was it County that did that?

Does that mean there's H4L kit going unused?! Surely a forum golden rule has been broken! Haha

These hunts bats you keep getting mate all look superb.
