What is your highest score with...
« on: October 30, 2014, 02:51:24 PM »

.... The lowest grade of willow bat you knowingly used?

Would be interesting to see what people say and could settle the argument of a question I've been asked before (due to being an equipment geek)... "Does a grade 1 bat make the bat play better??" (Yes I know a lot is down to pressing etc etc)

All 3 of my tons came with low grade gray nics. I'd say maybe 3 but could be 2. Grays grading is random.

Top score was 116* with a G2 Dukes Pro-Century. Indeed I averaged 70+ with that monster until it snapped after a season. I think my first ton might of been with a G3 V100 back in the early 90s.

66* with a GM 303 a couple of seasons ago! (Although it wasn't stickered as a GM)  ;)

Also got a 50 with a GM 404 season just gone.

Used a few grade 2/3 in my younger days and scored a few hundreds with them

As long as the bat isn't a complete plank the bat doesn't matter at all.

Not boasting here but I've scored over 50 centuries and all of them were with a bat that cost less than 200 (so no grade 1+ super fabulous 45mm edge, offset edge, part concaved, with special handle inserts , embossed sparkly stickers, or whatever rubbish is spouted on here) apart from about 6 which I got with a Laver from 2006 to 2008 that I paid just over 200 for.

Apart from the last 2 years all my bats have been bought blind on the Internet or from a sports shop or bat maker based on me saying oval handle 2.10 please.

And not once have I weighed it once I got it but I always got them mid season, knocked them in for 6 months got used to them and only ever used a bat until it was knackered. So maximum I had was 1 useable bat at any time.

63 with a SG (don't remember the name but it was one of those ones with white cover on the entire bat) that I paid Rs. 1000 for brand new in the year 2000 i think abt 14.71GBP based on the conversion rate back then

Its not the Bat its the batsman. I've got a couple of old bats, the sort Hutton and Bradman used to use. Horrible things but those guys had a pretty decent record with them.

And if you don't think the bowlers were as good watch Larwood. Voice and Tyson video's on you tube.

I forgot to mention a 42* off 12 balls using a Wasp sting 1000 I got for about 30-35 from South Africa.
It had a blue coating that looked like gloss paint on the back and a big butterfly stain about 4 inches from the toe! (I had  a butterfly bat before they were all the rage  ;) )
