Have some on the website for a good price with an additional 15% off using the forum discount code (CBF) - same scuff as used by GN/B3 etc.

FYI a roll covers a good 70+ bats so you don’t need that much haha!

Right then bat nerds.... :)

Where is the best place to buy average thickness chevrons that are nice and soft?

I have GN (thick and a bit plasticy but fine as a single grip), getpaddedup ones (thin and plasticy but fine under another grip) and one from a second hand bat that was jusuuuust right as a top grip with another underneath (I like this one and would like more).

This mystery one is soft and sticky one with no mold lines inside... just a better all around quality grip and I'd like to buy some more if anyone has any recommendations?

Ta!

Salix chevron grips are top quality!

Hi all,

Where’s the best/cheapest place to get high quality clear ‘helicopter’ scuff sheets from? Ideally want a roll so I can do 5 bats or so.

Cheers!

I think most points have been covered. I am reluctant captain meaning no one wants the responsibility outside the ground. However, everyone wants to be a captain on the field.

- Focus on having fun
- Share your responsibilities specially outside the ground
- Give 1-2 players chance to bat up the order or bowl every game so they feel involved. Those are the players who  show up every week, pay their dues and do not complain
- Do not lose sight of your game while being nice to everyone
- Encourage and ask other sharp people around you for advice
- Pass on the captainship after a season if someone is willing

Both out 1st and 2nds managed games last weekend, the 1sts won by 2 runs and the 2nds lost by 4 so both we well close games! Hopefully with the decent weather up in Yorkshire we might be onto something now and we can stick to schedule.

I have my first match this Sunday in a friendly then hopefully i'll be playing regularly! Looking forward to dusting off the whites again!

I captained out 2nd XI 2 years ago after being dropped from the 1sts. It's not something I'd done since school cricket, also  didn't help that I was one of the younger member of the side with no club captaincy experience before, but we ended up winging the league and I ended up leading scorer for the division. But as mentioned earlier ensure you delegate to other members, this takes pressure off yourself and you can mainly concentrate on tactics you want to use for the game. Also try your best to listen and take on board what other players have to say- this doesn't mean you have to agree but as long as there is communication, the other lads will appreciate this too. Lastly, it definitely helps if you take wickets or score runs- effectively leading by example.

@mohawks94  - that's very nice - what shape is that please?

Shape 19. The bat ID is 4745 on the old one, 6799 on the new one. Either of those numbers will get you the same specs (2lb8, slight oval handle, white stickers/grip, 3 stripe).
