Trying to get the most wood in the bat within a certain size. I don't think the MCc are going to implement thier original recommendations but rather allowing a slightly bigger bat meaning the Beluga shape is pretty redundant.

B3 have limited the Beluga to 65mm spine and 35mm edge however the changes which will come into force are for a max of 67mm spine and 40mm edge.

Hey ursmasti. Some nice willow there! Did you cut down or push down the top of the grip on that second bat or is that how it came from B3?

Didn't think so. Maybe B3 are limiting grip length as well as edge size....  ;)

Nah, saving that 0.1oz in weight. ;)

I really like this shape, superb looking replacement. Hopefully the shorter grip is the only issue with this one! :)

Used my Beluga 1 stripe in the last two games of the season on very average decks and made 28 and 61 no. About ten boundaries in that. What a great shape. Admittedly it is not easy on the eye and the specs on mine needed to be reduced to come in at 2.9.

Seriously thinking of getting a crown in something of a cross between @ursmasti's belugas and my other design. Pickup and middle is outrageously good.

If you are on a budget don't hesitate on a Beluga. I did barely 2 hours of knocking and two 10 min nets and the bat was ready for opening.
