Glad you like the performance but I am not happy with the condition you recieved it in. I have had another bat with marks and bumps after it left the shop done by the courier. I have that one back, cleaned it up and it arrived perfect.

I would like to arrange to get it collected, cleaned up to our standard and sent back. I will PM you later.

As mentioned by Dan he is our only bat maker and no one else makes for us. We do have 3 profiles and as each one is hand made each bat is different.

As mentioned very dissapointed by the condition after the courier collected it from us.

Maybe you can update the review when you have it back.

you can never have enough Harry

PW i notice a dent on the back edge, is that the only issue you had? i had the same thing on my Hattori, Matt recommended wetting the area a little and then holding over the steam from a kettle, takes a few attempts but it pretty much all came out eventually.  top tip from Matt.

Lovely lovely! It reminded me of 2009 Gray Nicolls Powerbow (a bit) So it automatically gets a brilliant bat tag :D

Hope it serves you well bud!

There's three dents on one edge, one on the other and 2 large scrapes on the back. I'll try thay out though mate thank you  :D

Bloody couriers should treat good wood with more respect.

beautiful bat PW, love the profile, nice wood, great size at 2.10 as well.

sorry to hear about the condition on arrival, that would take the pleasure out of the 'opening ceremony' for me too.

on the upside, as long as it goes, which it sounds like it does!

Got mine yesterday, just to reiterate what pro said, it's a monster, especially the edges.  The pick up is beautiful and it feels light as a feather, I normally use 2 grips on my bats, but I won't be playing around with this one!

The only downside as with Pro is a scrape on the spine, but I'm putting that down to the fact that it came in a box with a load of other kit, and certainly doesn't take anything away for the bat.  Shark had even fitted a toeguard on request!
