@velvetsky01 - Kit looks nice. For the bats can you add more details like weight, edge size etc?

Bat 1 bought, Phantom - Made in India (believed to be the same as Vitas Lion bats) - 2lbs 9, New for 2017/18, mix between Illusion and Cyborg (asked for Illusion stickers), came with a full length Orange bat cover.
Shoulder: 15 mm
Edge:37 mm
Toe:15mm
Spine:60mm






Bat 2, Pryzm P4 (Grade 3) like a H4L Devil...but cheaper with code atm (MYSTERY) and you get a hat! 2lbs 10, hand made in the UK!
Shoulder:10mm
Edge:35mm
Toe:20mm
Spine:59mm





Bats Side by Side



Observations,:-
Pick Up: Both pick up very well, Phantom wins as its lighter
Handle: Pryzm oval, Phantom Round
Response: without knocking in, Pryzm wins, a trampoline like bounce already
Price: Both cost the same, but I am sure the Phantom will be more expensive when it officially comes out. Both between 125 and 130 posted.
Grains: I had a choice for both, picked the best Pryzm wins with 8 straight grains, take those blemishes out between the grains and its a G1 Easily! Phantom has 6
Finish: both exceptional
Shape: almost identical, Phantom spine runs slightly lower.

Have already sold the Phantom to a team mate, he picked it up and said wow! How Much...I was silly enough to not make a profit lol, but he now has no excuse to blame the bat!

Overall, I would say these are great bats to have a go with!

Hope you Enjoyed!

This is what I have been using last few weeks and really happy with this years GM kit. Massive improvement in the performance of GM bats in my opinion this year

Pads - GM 808
Gloves GM 808 and GM ST30
GM original thigh pad set
Masuri TI


Bat is a GM Chrome signature from Asad, stunning performance 2.9

Have finally added the final touches to my kit for this season. Needless to say now I am a FKW. This kit should last me to the end of next season, but as a forumite, there is always a chance/inevitability that I'll get more.



Really happy with the selection of bats that I've got for this year, most of which won't be allowed if the regs went across all the divisions, hopefully won't come to mine!



Apologies for the ridiculous sizing of these pictures, still trying to work Imgur out!

The ping is exceptional that is for sure mate! Ping from just above the toe to just below the stickers. At the moment using the one with blue stickers as my love for shorter blade bats grows.

@Sivlar13  - Sylvia, I'm not very 'au fait' with the B&s range. Is the shorter blade / longer handle one a standard model?  also, what is the purple-stickered one on the far left? That is a very interesting shape.

The shorter blade one isn't a standard model unfortunately, only a few of them were produced I believe. One of my favourites though for sure!

The purple stickered one is a refurbished Kippax with a change of stickers! Very square.

A productive afternoon of cleaning up and re-gripping bats before they go away for the winter
