Red Ink Cricket:
following on from the flat backed scoop without a scoop bat i made for tush i modified the shape slightly and tried a rounded back. stats are as follows

2lb 11 oz with thick spiral or just a shade over 2lb 10oz with a single chevron 32mm edges, 45-50mm spine, round face, rounded back and no concaving, excellent pick up.  (red grip)

i wondered what the rounded back would do to the rebound so tested it alot throughout the shaping process. ive got to be honest and say it doesnt seem to have changed.









second one is a traditional profile which will hopefully be stepping out dressed to impress in the new and improved Red Ink livery for 2013. stats are

2lb 9.5 oz with matrix or 2lb 9 with the chevron grip, 22mm edges, 55mm + spine.
no concaving, picks up really nicely and im really starting to like the feel of a traditional bat more and more





i really enjoyed making both bats and the challenges that each shape brings. enjoy!

They look awesome mate. What would happen if you had a slightly convex (I think) shape with higher spine?

on which or both?

Colesy:
Well if it was a mix, so thinish straight edges, high spine and convex profile.

to get it convex on the traditional shaped one then you would have to drop the spine slightly to keep it at the same weight as your adding a little weight towards the edges if that makes sense. im more than happy to make one so you can see.
