Who plays with the oldest bat?
« on: September 14, 2017, 12:27:19 AM »

I know we all love a new bat, but I was wondering who plays with an old bat as their match bat. My match bat (only one match this summer) was bought at Vitas in 2013, before that I played with a Duncun Fernley from around 95/96. It went like a train until it fell to pieces one night at nets

Who loves playing with a classic bat?

I have an old CA from around 99/00 that I used most of last season and still use as my wet weather bat. I was supposed to put up some photos of it and never got round to it, might try and upload some tomorrow if I get round to it.

Be warned, I don't care what my kit looks like and subsequently, I haven't cleaned or sanded it ever so it's not for the faint of heart!

My CA is over four seasons old. I have seen some really old CAs in our league!

2011 Kookaburra Biggest Kahuna is one of my 3 match bats.. The reason for its survival is that i am a low middle order batsman.

The 2011 H4L Monster is currently held together with about 4oz of bat tape, the toe has totally gone, but I am not binning it until it snaps in half because it's a rocket

I occasionally play with a guy who has an old SS Jumbo that weighs about 4 pounds and is held together with 4 different colours of electrical tape....

The tape makes me sick.

Same match bat since 2014 season.
Three different sets of softs used during that time though!

And because you've got 2 other match bats.

Play with a pair of chaps who both use old GN Scoops from the 80's, will try and get pics as without those they don't exist!

Also one of our occasional players uses a SS Jumbo just like Goochie!

One of my teammates opens the batting using an original early 80s V12.
