New Bats
« on: March 27, 2017, 01:45:19 PM »

Been a little delayed in posting these. Has ordered 3 bats from Rob in different profiles and weights and other minor quirks....

All 3 arrived well packaged, out of the box the blank one pinged the best but now that all 3 have had knocking in, to various degrees, it is very hard to pick which one is really the best. In terms of service I would say except for me being impatient sometimes communication was great, always good to call and actually get Rob on the other end :) All amazing bats, ping is something else...some pics (pardon the poor quality of pics and review  :( )





My Bat
Weight 2-10.5
Edges - 35mm
Spine - somewhere in the mid 50's
Full profile, this bat reminds on the very first RPC I ever got, ping is very good.




RP Blank - Avalanche shape
Weight 2- 8.8
Edges - 42mm
Spine - Close to 60
Fair amount of concaving, ping is very good but this was the one that felt the best out of packet but now is on par with other 2




RPC-Extended spine
Weight 2lb 9.1
Edge 40 mm
Spine close to 60
Fair amount of concaving, best face and probably the best of the 3 ping but this one has had most knocking in...

@tushar sehgal , Never had an RPC but can't wait to try one when you move these on.

Haha I only have 1 of these and used it last weekend, I need to fix the grip on it but otherwise felt really good. Don't think i'll be moving this one on any time soon :) it is a very nice piece of willow

Yes indeed and play very well too, 2 bats that were for mates have both been very happy with how theirs play. I believe the blank one now has GN stickers on it, Kiwi guy and his obsession with GN!!!

Lovely looking sticks @tushar sehgal. I have a RPC arriving today for knocking and the owner is so pleased with the service and how Rob was able to materialise the bat they had corresponded over and even called him a few weeks later to ask how it was. Top Shelf service.

I'd like to know your thoughts on knocking in a RPC, i find do the edges and toe and rest is good.

Don't they hand knock in all of their bats?

Yup they knock all bats but I always knock mine further as I don't like taking chances with mine. Newest RPC that I have didn't require any knocking, pings well etc and feels ready but I still spent an hour giving it a gentle tap for piece of mind and kind learn how it behaves where...
