He'll be getting some ridiculously good bats from FC Sondhi currently. Has been known to get different bats from other manufacturers in the past, I think ones like GM (When he was sponsored by GM), Kippax, Keeley and I think SS from memory.

Thought he had them made at Kippax, and thats why his GM deal ended? I doubt NB care who makes them as long as theyve got the stickers on.

I would have thought it had more to do with money than that. Current ones are Sondhi from what I've been told, seems to have the same handle problems that Smith has

Interesting- I thought FCS makes really good, oval handles?

I expect Joe Root could score runs with bats made with any of the manufacturers mentioned in this thread. Even B3.  ;)

Ya surprising, I always felt FCS bat handles are best among Indian brands.

I repaired 2 for him before the OT test started/got cancelled , I can't say if they were made for him, but what I can say is that they were Keeley made, poorly rehandled (again by Keeley) and very average size and quality.

I've repaired a few for Rooty over the years when working at the test matches with the GN Roadshow and his Indian made LH/SB bats were far better than these (although they were always far too heavy)

Interesting! When you say they were far too heavy, do you mean set against what he wanted/usually used, or vs what you would have made for him if he had asked for something that suits him in your opinion?

Bat pick-up is a personal thing. You can't say someone else's bat is too heavy, can you? Especially not when they're the number 1 ranked batsman in the world?

Sounds like someone doesn't rate Keeley!

Average size? You yourself have told me size doesn't matter (in relation to cricket bats), BG.

Totally agree pick up is personal....what I can say is that the bats he brought to me on that occasion were nearly 2.13 in weight and he asked for them to be under 2.9
