Good points - Very well priced. My daughters bat was 62 I think. Mine was around 140. Both bats tap up well though I've only had a quick go as it's not Christmas yet. They arrived before Christmas, which was the only non-negotiable. My bat feels good and reminds me of a Chase FLC pick up. They were bought through The Cricket Boutique and Mark was great to deal with, including providing pictures of clefts to choose from. They came with the new stickers and toe guards applied.

Areas for Improvement - my daughters bat has a size 5 sticker on the handle when it's a size 4. I have had bats that have had a smoother finish.

Overall, fantastic value for money, great service and at least 2 people in my house will be happy on Christmas Day.

Well done, great value for money.  Just shows good bats do not need to be 350 plus.  140 is a bargain

You'll have to let me know what they play like!

I'm after a bat in the new year and JEDI are just down the road from me at Uni

Great value for money at 140, always seem to produce good looking sticks at reasonable prices,

From those that have used them what's performance like, I know Jedi make there own bats does that include a press?

Would have to be the cutest post/photo of two bats side-by-side ive seen on the forum .
I giggled when i read 1lb12oz . It's almost a full pound lighter than yours .  :D
I hope your daughter enjoys being able to use the same bat as her dad .
This post made my day .

Last year we had matching Red Ink bats. They were/are awesome too.

Looks like a great tradition! Good luck to you both, hope the relationship holds up when she runs you out for appallingly slow scoring.  :)
