I lurve these, lurve the shoulders and the shape - reminds me a little bit of a Joker.

Part of the reason I went for it @FattusCattus - Always had a secret hankering for a joker but they're rare as hens teeth used and silly money new.

Sexy indeed - may have a net booked for Sunday so will have to get it knocked in for a little dabble :)

I absolutely love the look of this and definitely want one! Is this a top of the range grade? Need to work out how many other bats to sell. Ive just bought a Bb thigh pad off  eBay be rude not to get a matching bat. Had a bulldog t20 bat that I loved but it only lasted a few weeks but my goodness the ball went off it.

Can't recommend one enough @pablomarmite - not only are they great fun they're also serious bats. The pickup is brilliant, the ping is seriously good and makes a lovely mellow thump. The ball just melts out of the middle which is pretty much all over as you'd expect with the amount of mass the bat has.

Mine has been graded down to a players grade because of the heartwood but with 15 straight grains running straight through the bat and a lovely pickup it could easily qualify as a higher grade.

I promise you won't be sorry for getting one!

How much are these @jamesisapayne  - do they come in different grades, or is it one price fits all?

Ive just picked up one on eBay. Think it is grade 3 but 8 grains taps up unbelievably. There were two grips on it and comes in at 2lb 11.5oz. Edge at biggest point 46mm. I keep walking around house swinging it with my gloves on.
I got it for 110 including postage practically unused. Im in love with my thigh pad too. Ive never been a FKW but so tempted to get another bat bag gloves and pads. Im such a quality player I might get sponsorship like lol!

Just over 200 for the players grade Fattus - Absolute stonker of a bat.

You can see the prices on the Blank Bats website at https://www.blankbats.co.uk/shop/bats/b20-bat/

I'd give Tai a call though if you're after something specific, I'm sure he can sort you out with whatever you're after specs wise.

Ha ha I know what you mean - I went for one of the new BB duffles too as I like the kit so much. Something about the minimal branding that I just love.

@jamesisapayne Your bat is players grade! Wow it looks class. I always regret not buying the blank bats morrant style pads when they had them. I would be worried that I wouldnt get on with the 3 strap pads now but I love the look of them.

Wow!! That looks class in with the black minimal stickers and the black grip! Looks like the bat means business! :D

I guess its the sloping shoulders which are making the blade look a lot smaller than it actually is. It would have been great if you could have posted a pic of the bat alongside a regular one as comparison.

Thanks @pablomarmite - as I said in my initial post the sloped shoulders make the handle look longer than it is. It's only about 1.5" really.

Handle shape and blade length still encourage you to play proper shots.

Thanks for sharing! The B20 could definitely be used both in T20 and 45 overs format!

Just wondering...how are you getting on with the bat? Have you used it a 45-50 over game? Would be great if you can share your feedback.
