Kulli:
I get why a ‘hitter’ might want a heavier bat, but not really why they’d want one with a heavier pickup, what have I missed?🤔

Always thought the idea that 'hitters' want heavier weight/pickup bats and 'touch' players want lighter is a really weird generalisation, doesn't make any sense to me. Fairly confident that Rahul Dravid's (for example) bats would be a heavier pickup than David Warner's!

Jimbo:
Suppose some players lose the feel with a really light pick up, wasn't that supposedly why Tendulkar used such big bats?

jimmy23:
Does the size or strength of the individual not have a say of how the pick up feels?

I use heavy bats - 2.15+ - but also want them with low middle which means they will pick up heavy for their weight.  I find that I play too early and lose shape with bats that feel lighter in the hands.  I also go against the modern trend for light bats and faster bat speed and focus instead on maintaining shape and making a good contact.  As ever, it is case of experimenting with different set ups to find what works
