My first B3 (It's a big un)
« on: September 21, 2016, 03:36:36 PM »

So being new to the forum I flicked though some older posts and discovered that B3 did the Warner style replicas as well as the big Pepsi bat.

I dropped David an email and asked him what the difference was between the two and he told me to come down to the factory and have a look (I'm a 15 mins drive away from B3)

Last Thursday I popped down and had a look at the Pepsi bat and I decided to go with the fuller Warner big edge style, not bothering about dead weight, more the pick up of it.
Tuesday I get a phone call saying it's ready, so today I picked it up and it's a beast!
With toe guard and anti scuff it weighs in at 2.15 and picks up a dream.
Edges are around 51mm and spine 70mm   :)

And as I have kit OCD I bought the full set of softs as well!

With B3's "ready press" do you need to bother knocking them in these days?

I requested it knocked in, the edges look rounded so will start it with a few from the bowling machine first

Fantastic looking big bat, hope you score lots of runs with it and have a lot of fun! Looks a nice clean face for a 2 stripe.

A bat that big shouldn't only weigh 2.15, must be witchcraft. :D
