Bat size limit rules should give them some reprieve to make thicker handles or would they resort making bats even lighter than 2lb 8oz with 40mm edges :D.

Just use edge tape, very unlikely to crack in the face if prepared properly

SS bats have gone for quite thin handles these days from being medium/thick few years ago. Some of the recent bats I saw had ridiculously thin handles and can beat Kranzie handles on thinness :)

Depends on balls too
I hate scuff sheets, but in our league , any team can use , any cheap bat breakers they want
A scuff will help in that respect
I agree with you. My league owner gets balls which is $2 max. I didnít use scuff sheet before and now I donít even use any Bat without scuff on it.

Applying a scuffsheet adds a bit of weight if youíre really fussy about particular weight

Yes it is that time again. With only two more weeks before Christmas we had 7 turn up. I kept wicket in the first game, which had the Blue shirts (Chris, Dick and Michael) vs The White shirts (Steve, John and Malcolm). Single wicket, with each player of the fielding side bowling one over at each of the batting side.
The Blue Shirts
Chris      66
Dick.      27
Michael -12
Total.     81

The White Shirts
John.     37
Malcolm 47
Steve.   49
Total.    133

Second game (Dick's wife rang and he had to go home) three 3 ball overseas per batsman
The Blue Shirts
Chris.     21
Jason.    25
Michael.  15
Total.     61

The white Shirts
John.     14
Malcolm 15
Steve.    12
Total.     41

 Batting i did not really get going, and was run out off the last ball.
Did get a bit heated after I bowled Malcolm with a beamer, which hit the top of leg stump. We were told it was a no ball and after a bit of a too -do I had to bowl it again. Bowled another beamer for a no ball and 3 runs

I'd always recommend a scuff sheet when using a new bat (that's been knocked in) to add extra support. I normally have a scuff sheet on bats when they're new and then remove them (and sand/refurb) after about a season. However I've noticed that naked bats tend to crack easier than those that have scuff sheets applied.

Having a scuff sheet applied is always going to help support the bat and realistically the performance difference is hardly noticeable if you don't have one on. It also helps the bat looking like new every time you remove it and re-apply a new one.
