Title: Blank Bat - Hulk Profile (well sort of) - my new BEAST!
Post by: Buzz on May 20, 2014, 09:13:30 AM
As you may have seen from the WIYK video competition - I do have an extraordinary new wand.

And I am very justified in using the words "extraordinary new wand".

Background story...
I phoned Mike up around Easter outlining my need (really? - more like desire...) for a new bat, an appropriately large (very reasonable?!) sum of cash changed hands and Mike said he would bring me something the next time we met up - which worked for me. Unfortunately we didn't get so have our net due for ages (all my fault) so I asked Mike to post the bat to me in time for my game at the weekend.

What I wasn't expecting was what arrived

Mike said he would choose me an awesome performing bat and insisted that I should trust him to find me something I would love.
 
Now typically I would be relatively prescriptive on shape/style of bat - preferably something either relatively traditional or a lovely Pakistani shaped bat - usually the most important things for me are having the right handle and in a 2-10-211 weight range - but I have seen (and sampled) some of the more different shapes Blank Bats have trialled with Mike when we have netted - so I was persuaded to go with the flow.

What I wasn't expecting was this huge grade 2 (or 3 or Butterfly - who really knows...) custom XL club shaped weapon

(http://i895.photobucket.com/albums/ac151/buzzrockport/Mobile%20Uploads/utf-8BSU1BRzE4MjQuanBn_zpsdd808b18.jpg)

This beast is all about performance - beauty here is in the eye of the beholder, it picks up well nicely on weight - but boy does it go.

It has been a while since I walked out to bat wielding something that really gave me confidence in the willow I was holding. The SAF Genus I had scored me loads of runs but was always just too heavy and my other bat had the middle too high - which I thought based on my netting was where I needed it - but it appears where I hit the ball in the nets doesn't resemble where I hit the ball in the middle.

This bat however felt good as I faced my first ball (an ungainly non-foot moving prod at a brisk ish medium paced plodder). The second ball screamed to the boundary through the off side. Confidence was back - and continued to flow until I was out LBW to one that kept a little low (shot along the floor - as I was shaping to launch it into Dorking).

Two things also to say
1. there has been a load of debate around concaving and performance - with this - I have large edges and massive amounts of wood in the hitting area - which does inspire confidence
2. yes it has nine straitish grains - but performance can definitely come from the less pretty bats

As I mention in the video's this is an extra ordinary club. Genuinely good enough for a pro. Genuinely wasted on me - but boy will I enjoy it...

Everyone loves a little video review!!

Great stuff

I've seen Canners bat which is very similar to that profile. Seems to be a winner.

Lucky Buzz.

Nice review mate, a lot of effort put into it, this must be one of the best bats ever! Wish I could  have something like this in 2.8, maybe smaller spine and edges, with not much concaving. When I heard that sound 😍. My dream bat. Think it sounds almost as good as some of those 3lb monsters on Its Just Cricket's channel.

Looking at Captain Cavemans club, 4 grains, not very straight. TT sloped shoulders.

BUZZ if you hit a 6 with this bat you must shout "HULK SMASH!!!"

Second, looks huge for the weight? Especially without any concaving

Want one!

They start at 2.8/9 dependant on the cleft. What weight are you after?

I saw, held and rubbed myself up against this bat last night. It is very massive and aggressive - the willow version of a Pitbull.

Zero concaving and massive amounts of wood behind the middle. Buzz absolutely caned it in the nets, so I think it must have a very forgiving middle (:))

Too heavy for my feeble arms, but a very nice shape and it looks like a decent performer.

Probably worth getting a pic up of one in 2.8 'ish Mike, so feeble people like me could see how massive they would be in that weight.

I don't really do measuring stuff - the edges are bigger than a 2 pound coin and alone size (I assume you mean spine) is bigger again - is that helpful??!!

Fully made up under the or around the 2,10 region with scuff sheet and match ready if possible


Given my bat is 2lbs 10.6 fully made up with a scuff sheet etc - I would suggest you take the plunge.

As Fattus mentioned above we had a little hit in the barn last night the ball was flying off the middle. Really excited by this bat.

While I genuinely believe Blank Bats offer great value bats - they aren't quite generous enough to sell 5 of these beasts at £40 each...!!!

I would suggest 5 at £200 each :)

ok, I have been asked for some comparison pics.

these three bats are of similar weight.
the icon is the same weight and the saf slightly heavier.

perversely the genus picks up the best, then the icon, however the middle is lower on the BB.

(http://i895.photobucket.com/albums/ac151/buzzrockport/Mobile%20Uploads/utf-8BSU1BRzE4NDIuanBn_zpsf3721954.jpg)

oh and just for good measure, the BB has a slightly longer blade than the others.

given the amount of concaving, I think you will get the size and volume of wood behind the middle now...

Have a much nicer navy grip for next year in the draw, but the yellow one will have to do for the winter!

You could've at least cleaned the marks off the face before taking pictures!
Putting new stickers on without cleaning the face, that's like having a shower before putting your best suit on, but wearing your dirty underwear and a shirt with last nights dinner down it!

Yup you are right. But I have kids who need entertaining and who I don't trust with a sanding machine. Or my bat.

Kids and a sanding machine - that sounds like an almost certain trip to A&E!
I'm well practiced at sanding and still nearly have the end of my fingers off more often than I'd like to admit!  :-[

And I've just noticed - in the top picture the bat is colour co-ordinated with the shoes  :D

When your bat looks like this after a knock it is unlikely to have been a bad one...

Was going to get an LE @Buzz then thought to hell with it, I'll get a Pro seeing as the reviews are all awesome!! The H4L custom that I'm using at present has a convex profile quite similar so it should suit me very well! To say I'm excited is an understatement, always wanted a BB

The hulk profile is an old Newbury Tour XL profile, with no spine. That looks a lovely bat, but I don't think it is a hulk.
