Nice and light that ;) haha

Genuinely beautiful bat though, one of the best I've seen in a while

Whoops. Heh. Ta.
Now amended from 5lb to 2lb. Would have been more like a good-looking workbench than a bat.

I say its fake grain sheet!! oh wait that's my jealousy. That is a gorgeous looking bat mate, that's what a top end bat should look like, I hope it plays just as well.

That looks like an absolute cracker. And I recently got my hands on the B3 butterfly and I was amazed by the ping and pick up. Good choice mate!!

Agreed. Transparent and white would be terrific. But don't let that put you off getting one!

After doing a bit of light winter refurbing on a few bats (5 now, thanks to CBF) it set me off down memory lane, recalling when in 2014 I was graced with my current match bat: this B3 Crown. It's put on a bit of weight now (up to around 2lb 10oz) and has new embossed stickers in the same colourway.

I'll doubt if I'll ever have a better bat, to be honest - but as we all know, I wouldn't be a true CBF member if I didn't keep trying.   :D

That's a keeper! My B3 2 stripe would be similar in everything except all those specs you listed lol. Great bats your going to be happy and that cleft is superb. I love my B3 and despite the fact I'm a serial bat swapper, It's going nowhere.

Lovely looking bat. Your specs sound almost spot on for me too. I like the traditional touches towards performance rather than fashion such as the rounded toe and "normal" edge thickness. I'd be very interested to hear how the bat goes for you in the upcoming months. Enjoy!
