I got one in the last deal, luckily when the pound was a bit stronger ha. Was nowhere near as pretty as the stock photo, but rather nice!

Decent - didn't have much chance to get it prepared during the back end of the season so it's only really had one bowling machine net so far, but it felt bloody good in that one net, leaning into straight shots really pinged them back.

It's a twist of a SCAT I believe. What's the pickup on these? Is the toe up to it as I've heard they're not the thickest?

My second last bat from L&W was one of these, great profile, huge middle, picks up average, pressed very well pings nicely and I love the skinny oval handle they do, great value bat, just be very very very clear on the weight you want, my last bat  from them was/is a disaster, order a special profile in a light weight, which was not what they sent me, too heavy and profile not even right, thought they just sent me some else bat.
Sent it back and they just scooped the back out to a inch of it's life.
Undecided if I will ever purchase from them again.

I like the pickup on mine. Obviously not the lightest, but has a very nice balance to it. Saw on here that the handles can be quite thin so asked for a very thick very oval handle which was delivered spot on, and weight was what I asked for to within 0.1oz on my scales, so I was a lot happier!
