So what does a cleft with a density of say 400 weigh?

D.   Bragg                 2lb 10.5oz
E.   Mull                  2lb 12.25oz
G.   #1271              2lb 15oz

If you can do any of these in a finished 2lb 8oz then I will take one. Obviously if you can knock it in then even better.

Hi Guys (ProCricket or The Doctor),
Good to see an innovative and professional outfit pushing the boundaries of cricket bat design.
Would it be possible that you show us some actual real life profile pictures (instead of CAD) of the following shapes - DB2, Mull05 & Wagg shapes.. or maybe all the shapes for the interest of other forum members.

Keep up the great work.

We were going to keep this simple and offer the Butterfly grade in one shape (the DB1) and make these up (into bats) and then offer them on the Forum, but after discussing with ProCricket I think you guys wanted a bit more choice in the design. So I have had a think, and have come up with an idea of offering you more choice. Below is a few designs both Series and a few of our sponsored players that you can choose from;



Now there are two things that dictate bat weights 1. Model/Shape and 2. Density of willow, so we can say the Model is fixed when you choose from one of the above. Now the desity varies as Willow is a natural product, and as ProCricket has already said in this thread Butterfly timber is in general more dense than other grades. If we assume the same Density (400) for the above designs the weights would be;

Ref.   Model                  Weight * based on 400 Density
A.   DB1                  2lb 9oz
B.   DB2                    2lb 11oz
C.   DB3                  2lb 10.5oz
D.   Bragg                 2lb 10.5oz
E.   Mull                  2lb 12.25oz
F.   Wagg                 2lb 12oz
G.   #1271              2lb 15oz

An increase in Density of 10 increases the weight by approximately 1oz, so for a Density of 410, a DB1 would weigh 2lb 10oz, or a Density of 390 a DB2 would weigh 2lb 10oz.

So if I post a picture of a few Butterfly clefts with the Densities written on them, you should be able to work out what each shape would weigh with particular clefts and densities. We can do all of this for the same price previously quoted and you can still customise your bat (handle length & shape, sticker colour etc).

Does that make sense?

Looks like the I will have to go for a DB1. Just one question, when will these bats be available ?

Great to hear that you guys have decided to expand the choices on the Butterfly bats.
DB2, Wagg and #1271 (though a bit heavy) look real good.

Looking forward to some user reviews and real bat pics of the profile.
