Here goes, heres my training kit plus all the bats I could find (because everyone loves bats)



Bats from left to right:
CA Plus 1200 (I think) circa 2010 - 2lb 10 its a friends who moved away and left all his kit so I claimed that to try and bring life back into it use it on damper nights at training or when there are horrible balls being used
SS Gladiator - 2lb 9 bought off eBay but didn't like the stickers so removed them and had some NB copies put on but I don't like them now  :D
Gray Nics - 2lb 9
GM Mana 808 - 2lb 10
GM chrome 808 - 2lb 10 Both GMs are as good as brand new bought in Allrounders sale last year used the Mana briefly.

Pads - (SS Test opener another impulse buy off eBay not the biggest fan of them though)
Gloves - Online Stockist
Thigh - Helygen (I'd never heard of them till they followed me on twitter and were advertising a sale)
Helmet - good old masuri


*I'll use my camera instead of phone for pictures next time

Winter nets with Ansty starting on Sunday, so getting my kit ready. Can't wait to get started after a difficult winter personally, though I've trained with Sussex University side over the last term and been asked to take a sickie each Wednesday that we have a fixture.

Kit for this season as follows:
Bats left to right- Kookaburra Impulse 950 from 2014, 2lb7oz. Taped back together for winter nets. Hunts County from their eBay run of 'pro grade' bats, 2lb8oz. Used in a couple of nets, ridiculous ping and grains. GN F18, previous owner bought from IJC going by the sticker, haven't used yet but another 2lb7oz. B3 shape 19 3 stripe, still the best bat I've ever used but may not last the season.

I also have my GM Flare 2lb9oz somewhere, and a Kookaburra Xenon 950 in need of a new handle that I picked up on eBay for 30ish last season.

I am having cravings for another B3 once mine gives up, a GN Atomic and there is a GN Prestige on eBay at present that I am tempted by.

Softs: GN Prestige pads and gloves from 2017, Pro Players thigh pads.

Coaching: GN fielding bat

Other bits: Shrey Masterclass Air Ti with NekTek, Aspex Loki glasses, Sidearm Elite and GN box/jock shorts.

Footwear: Asics for fielding/bowling, Adidas SL22 for batting, Adidas Cloud Foam for training/indoors, Havainas for boundary bowls

Bag: GN Legend duffle, though I am looking at a wheelie bag as well.

Other bits I am looking at are some Legend gloves if I can get them cheap somewhere, and some GN keeping kit to use when coaching. Once I am working I will be looking to pick up a couple of GN bats, either projects or new.

What is that maroon on pads?

It is lace from old trainers, just keeping the pads in shape and moulded, nothing worse than having a flat top, nice curvature :-)
Glad you like it

The bit where I said the B3 may not last the season... It has gone big time in my second winter net with Ansty. Now to wait for student loan to arrive to get a replacement!

Used it in nets today, felt a bit off so switched for the bowling machine, got my mate to try it and he said there were big vibrations, had a look post session and it's cracked twice down one side of the splice, three down the other :(
