New Custom Bat
« on: July 09, 2021, 12:29:17 PM »

Getting older, feeling I have no strength and energy I wanted a lighter bat. After initially wanting a Keeley and then getting frustrated with their social media pro pricing, I thought it was time to try a forum sponsor so reached out to John.

I specified:
  • Max weight: 2lb 8oz
  • A shape similar to a Shoaib Malik CA I'd seen
  • Shorter blade longer handle combo
  • Oval handle similar to Keeleys
  • I didn't ask for any stupid specs and gave John some leeway

Here it is:




The handle could do with being a little skinnier but that's not John's fault, it's not like I specified any measurements. I've not weighed it but the pick up is great!

Really impressed and looking forward to using it. Thanks again to John.

Nice piece of willow. Think it's a mid high middle. Red Ink bat with black stickers, looks very pleasing.
2lb 8oz does wonders! 👍
Please add back pics.

That's a beaut. John really does make a cracking bat. Right up there with the Garrard I have in terms of how quickly it was match ready as well.

Lovely shape and great to see someone going to one of the forum sponsors. Hope it goes well for you mate. Johns work is always highly recommended and the one I had a few years ago now was a superb bat
