My Rep said there is a possibility of that duffle being released in all black

Hell I would be all over that if that ever actually is an option

Bat Making / Re: Narrow Grain vs Wide Grain - Amateur Science

This is going to be an interesting thread to watch.

Most of my older bats are wide grained - i have a 80's powerspot that could probably still be used - whereas some of my clubmates modern bats with lots of tight grains are knackered in less than 2 seasons.

That is scary as I reaped the benefits of "tight grains" this season. I hope that bat lasts more than 2 seasons. :)

Great that the prices have stayed the same. I think the stickers look awesome, as do the softs and bags. I'd be all over a mid sized duffle in the black colourway some of the wheelie bags come in but the colours are much improved IMO

Noir and Chrome look the same to me. Checking the stats says fractionally lower spine and lower volume on the Noir but essentially the same to my eyes. Mythos tweaks the Mana every so slightly but more or less the same too. Haze and Neon unchanged by the looks of it.

Is it wrong to get more than slightly excited by a black Terrain grip? :)

Dropped the Kaha, ST and Max/ Lite bats to make room for the Diamond coming in, which is what I wish the Neon or Mana were (middle too high for my liking on the Neon and not a fan of lower edge higher spine like the Mana... ) I can see that selling well besides the tough guy posing next to them.

Mid middle full length blade looks like a bit of a gap but that is more or less the Zelos and you could argue every GN and Kook pretty much has that covered so why stress :)

No major unexpected changes but great tweaks to an already quality line up which isn't to be understated! Like it all :)

Edit: Why is the Diamond a short blade? Partly as I guess that is what the smiley fella uses and partly that shorter blades seem to sell well as they feel nice in the show room and are a bit of an in thing

'CleanHitCricket' - it looks slightly smaller in size, so it might be a Junior but worth asking round some retailers and forum sponsors to see what they've got. Today's presumably the best day to get the pick of the bunch.

A retailer just shared this on Twitter. That middle 404 Noir, despite supposedly being bleached, looks like it could be very nice for a Junior

which retailer mate?

Bat Making / Re: Narrow Grain vs Wide Grain - Amateur Science

You could measure shore hardness of the bat face, electron microscope the wood structure or even cross section under light microscope. 3 point bend test would be interesting... Wouldnt be great for bat making after tho.

Nice ideas! They probably require a bit more equipment than you'll find kicking around in my garage tbh. We'd need to get a university research lab involved.
