Author Topic: Another which Bat question... Aldred Butterfly, County Hunts Insignia or a GM..  (Read 2805 times)

Okay... maybe there's something contagious in the forum.. but woke up with the urge to clear my bats and settle on 2 bats... one for bad weather and nets with cheap balls... and a match bat... not in a rush. Need to get rid of my current bats first but would be interesting to hear people's feedback.

Keep one of my existing bats as nets/bad weather/spare bat... and no I'm not getting 3 separate bats :P

  • An Aldred butterfly - Like the idea of a bat having character
  • Insignia - Always admired the shape from afar and never had a hunts bat. Kinda wished I'd bought via Jake when he had a great offer on.
  • A GM - Seen some lovely GM bats

Unfortunately there can only be one...

Im afraid we are going to have to cancel your subscription to this forum. Who has heard anything so ludicrous as only 2 bats

i bought a gm neon signiture as a spare/nets bat, highly reccomend it, really nice pickup and the pressing is fantastic, minimal knocking in required, really good value for money

Obviously I'm biased, but you really can't go wrong with a Hunts. Quality bats across all the grades.

Interesting so far:

Aldred butterfly - nil points
Hunts Insignia - 2 pts
GM - 1pt

Sure

Currently Have a Custom Jedi, 2 x AM Monarchs, 10 year old Charlie French fusion. Some other Asian firewood...

Keeping the Jedi - I actually do like it
Keepin one of the AMs as my spare bat - both have lovely grains
Brother has CF so not sure whats happening with that...
Firewood is getting donated to some cricket charity to team mates if they want them.

To Add the AMs are long blade. One has had weight reduced by Jedi and handle slightly chopped. Getting older I prefer standing more upright, back etc..

  • Clear your mind, stay still and watch the ball

I would keep one of your current bats to use as your spare.

Hunts - I love them! Yet to have a bad bat made by Hunts

GM - very consistent. As they seem to hate heartwood there is the potential for some lower grade bargains.

Aldred - I've never had one but I hear they pick up well...

Disclaimer - I'm one of the members on here who has never batted long enough to understand a bat or use one properly.

Thank you... I thought you may have had some brand loyalty when you posted the 3 brands you are considering. Have you thought about a B3 instead of the GM? There are other custom brands on here that could sort you a lovely stick as well. Just trying to lure you into the addiction of the forum 🏏😛

Thanks, have a little loyalty to JEDi but felt like a change. I am aware of the other brands on here... but have mentioned why them 3

B3 had crossed my mind but not seen many up here. Seen a few GMs up close and they look lovely.

Hunts can make a butterfly for you.

A butterfly insignia... oooohhh that sounds tempting? Just out of interest with Jake no longer around, can I go direct or would I have to go through someone?
