Lovely bat Ed, top work!


What do you think of the Serbian willow?

Just to add my two cents, the Serbian willow bat that I had as a bit of a tester has now become my match bat... honestly the performance is as good, if not better, than anything I've had previously. Highly recommended from a personal standpoint.

Really like the shape of the handle. Almost rectangular by the look of it.

Cheers, I'm a big believer in a solid handle/shoulders being a really important part of the bat so I try and take out as little as possible around there when blending the shoulders in to the handle - right at the bottom it's quite square sided where it follows the shoulders, then smooths into a nice traditional oval for the main section of the handle.

Thanks for sharing this. Even though Serbian willow is great, it is not a cost effective substitute for English willow as prices are not much different. True?

They're only slightly cheaper once the importing costs are taken into account, but it's more a case of the supply being abundant compared to EW. It's no secret that EW is in vast demand, which isn't currently being met, so hopefully the Serbian Willow can help with the shortage (plus the trees are much older meaning the grain lovers amongst us should be pleased!)

#003 is a bit of a beast, got a very light cleft and so tried to make the biggest bat I could from it with just a smidge of concaving. 2lb10, not the prettiest but she's definitely a pinger, I'm looking forward to giving this one a go.

Big bat for 2-10!! Nice shape too.

Spine is running along the blade. How's the pickup?

Bat gauge arrived, good job I don't play professional cricket ;)



@InternalTraining picks up really nicely I think, very pleased with the balance.

Face and profile shots of #004 and #005:





Very pleased with these, particularly the shape of #004 - aimed to pack all the wood into where it counts so it's a very full convex middle and the weight and balance has been taken elsewhere where it isn't needed. Both approx 2.11 and both will be up for sale so feel free to get in touch ;)
