Kranzbuhler Bats
« on: August 23, 2017, 03:16:11 PM »

If you have used one, you know how good they are.

What's Kranzbuhler's secret? What is he doing differently that makes his bats so good?

All opinion isn't it.

i've seen a fair few and some have been sensational, up there with the best bats I've ever had pass through my hands, others i've been far less impressed by.

Its very simple, if a batmaker/brand genuinely was lightyears ahead in terms of what they produced then in the short term thats all anyone would buy, and in the longer term the competition would catch up by imitating/innovating.

There's always a new flavour of the month ha, Kranzbuhler is just the latest.

Having never batted with one myself, what's the big deal? Find it hard to imagine they actually ping noticeably better than a good'un from any other high quality maker, and shape is both very personal and not exactly difficult to copy.

I've heard from a source that will not be named that SK pours a special Run Sauce on them when he is pressing the blade. It's an Oz GN secret recipe that apprently guarantees runs no matter who is holding the bat...

There big, they ping, and they pick up beautifully....... Atleast mine does.


Not a short term buy either, mines coming towards the end of its 2nd season in use. Nearly 2k runs and it's still going.


No idea on the secret though.

For me, most of his bats dont have low or mid-low middles .... making them pick up better . The oz gn big bats were sights to behold shape wise , I'll miss them so much .
The specialist range aren't super huge , but are very full and have good coverage .
The handle shapes aren't everyones cup of tea , but are the nicest handles in the business in my books .
I also think theres something special about the shaping of the lower 1/3 of his bats (including the toe !  :D).
Lastly , ive owned a fair few and never had one break on me .
Btw @InternalTraining. .... I'm getting my next 'kransie' in 4-6wks .... I'll keep you posted (but you can guess for now  :D ;)).

Have you seen the "XXX" line of GN AUS bats? They are shaped like Warner but under 2-9. The "custom" XXX-11 model goes for the same price as the Warner; I netted with one in 2-8 range. I wish I had the timing for such a light bat but the ping on that thing...wooooooo!!!!!!

An insight into a genius , all clefts come from england , gn uk were talking about waste with the larger clefts shaping them down to size, stu played around with these & the big bats were born , willow is sourced from the bottom of the tree , they weigh about 5lbs initially & take approx an extra hour than normal to shape ,  always thinking of something new & innovative.

That makes sense since UK market is all about conformity and tradition. I actually respect the fact that he takes his time to shape a bat; I suspect bat makers don't bow (and correctly press the bowed)  bats because it is a labor intensive process. I love how his bats are bowed and pressed!
