Title: Blank bats... What isn't there to like
Post by: Buzz on April 06, 2016, 09:03:39 PM
Here is a picture of the new blank bats gloves, that are really rather lovely... If you like very light and flexible gloves with pittards palms and minimal branding.

Those are very nice, what's the sizing like Buzz? Last pair of BB gloves I had were pretty big

They look bigger than they are. I would say bigger than my sg gloves, and smaller than the GM LE gloves I have.

Lighter and more flexible than both.

And another good bit, they cost less than 40 posted.

They look fabulous! What pattern is it on palms?

Is that 'pro' bat from BlankBats as well? :O

Here is another picture of the gloves, so you can see the palms

I like the little tab on the gloves for taking them off! That's a good little detail, for less than 40 they are excellent value as well!

But that Bat!! What shape is it Buzz?

Post by: Ams4287 on April 07, 2016, 09:36:22 AM
Nice that @Buzz which profile is it? I'd love another bb stick

I also have a couple of pairs of the new gloves from Tai, very nice and comfortable - I always wear fingerless inners and they are a good fit!

@Buzz I hope THEY are paying YOU for using their equipment in your kitchen coaching videos ;)
Title: Re: Blank bats... What isn't there to like
Post by: Buzz on April 07, 2016, 12:49:44 PM
The sharpie isn't mine! It was on the handle when I took the grip off.
No sponsorship for me, even if my kitchen coaching vids have a cult following!!

This has a very similar shape to the rpc bat posted today:

Here is a profile shot
(http://i895.photobucket.com/albums/ac151/buzzrockport/IMAG0777_zps9ruqequ7.jpg) (http://s895.photobucket.com/user/buzzrockport/media/IMAG0777_zps9ruqequ7.jpg.html)

So some specs...
Weight around 2lbs 11 fully dressed
Edges around 33 mm
Pretty full profile
Low middle

The pick up is unlike any other similar weight bat I have had, the balance is pretty special.

The middle doesn't look particularly low to me from those shots. Still. Lovely stick. Are you planning on wielding it in anger Buzz?
Title: Re: Blank bats... What isn't there to like
Post by: Buzz on April 07, 2016, 09:35:03 PM
Mattsky, there is no point in just staring at it!
I just hope I will be able get it knocked in in time. Having said that, my other blank bat is magnificent and I still need to use that too!

Do you collect empty boxes?
Title: Re: Blank bats... What isn't there to like
Post by: WalkingWicket37 on April 07, 2016, 09:56:53 PM
I'm sorry @Buzz, but the GM logo on the grip wasn't perfectly central in line with the face of the blade, so you've gone down in my estimation  ;)

Hi, I like know if the bat still available for sale , I want to buy one bat and gloves , if it is light weight, thx let me know

Post by: Buzz on April 20, 2016, 03:17:40 PM
Hi @Chauhan1947 this bat was bought from @Blank Bats for me to abuse. Reasonable to say I won't be parted from this bat anytime soon.

I suggest you speak to the blank bats team (message then on here) I know they have some tremendous blades in stock if you want something like this.

Heard a lot about their net bats, can't see them on the site, have they stopped or are they email only to purchase?

Here are a few pics of my new BB net bat. Not massive be a super pick up and a excellent middle.
Pretty pleased with it to be honest...
