Highest Middle?
« on: August 12, 2017, 12:36:16 PM »

In CBF experience which bat has the highest middle?
After many years I've realised I hit the ball higher up the bat than some more cultured players

Newbury GT

 That's a name I haven't heard in a long time. I really did look for it but I couldn't find one   they phased the model out.  They were also expensive and Newbery were very inflexible on price.

Probably the Gray Nicolls you've just sold to the 1st XI skipper!!!

High middles kick butt ! Xp80 and revolution black might be the highest . Agree with others mentioned too . Not the highest , but c.a bats are pretty highish middles and feel that way in the hands too .
There was a blue labeled oz g.n , about 6 years ago ( used by David Hussey) , came out the same season as the xyphos and ignite models..... that had a super high middle.

Although the peak of the spine is high up I suspect the middle will end up a fair bit lower. Interesting shape and great that people are prepared to try something new. Did you consider shifting the hump up and smooth the lines in to the handle for similar weight distribution but bulk up a bit towards the splice and shoulders?

Now that's something rather unique! BDM make excellent bats, they tend to taper the width of their bats slightly from front to back, so width at front can be around 107mm and back could be 103mm. Clever way to pack the wood in the central area/make a bat appear to have more volume than it actually does.

Do let us know how it turns out!

In terms of higher middled bats, Amplus, GT, one of the Charlie French shapes and one of the Chase shapes too. The old Kookaburra ranges from 2013 all had high middled too from memory!

Always find higher middled bats give excellent coverage and pick up, while lower middled bats tend to keep the ball hit!

My old uni skipper had a butterfly GT that he picked out of their bargain bin. 150 I think, probably the best performing bat in out team, and we had some useful sticks amongst us!
