Really like that profile!

With the spine into the toe makes it look like a proper club!

My mate Ram has broken so many toes on bats, hopefully this will last a bit

That newbery cost him a small fortune, and is only used in matches

Yes Id agree,,,, after over 40yrs of playing, I suppose Ive seen every possible shape of bat.
The shape/profile Im shaping , just seems to work
Its not easy to produce, as the spine has to run fairly straight to the toe.
Then the profile has to follow that line, which means getting the balance and pick up right, whilst keeping as much wood in the bat as possible.

One big thing I do want, is to get the finish of the bats, as good as possible
It takes time, but , thats what ultimately will set me apart
