Title: New Custom Robinsons sports cricket bat
Post by: ibrartariq on September 21, 2018, 03:25:03 PM
Hi folks
New member here but been silent reader for years.
Read about robinsons cricket on this forum. I needed a custom made full profile bat so went with them.
Overall mr. surinder took approx a week or so to arrange the cleft that could meet my specs.
Handle: semi oval
Grains: 10 evenly spaced grains front and back
Weight: 2lbs 9.9oz approx.
Profile : full profile, not a big fan of duckbill but i think it was necessary to have a better pickup/balance.
Edges: 39.5mm
Spine: 65mm
Middle: mid to low.
I also ordered a new pair of gloves from them and they look stunning too.
It has been shipped so waiting to get my hands onto it and have a hit in the nets.
He said he had it hand knocked for 2 hours so would need little bit more knocking in.

I have finished up giving it couple of hours of knocking in.
Used it in a bowling machine session and it pings better than my 800 dollars gray nicolls signature.
Will use it in nets tomorrow and will update how it goes.
Mallet response is amazing too.

Looks great. Interested to know the size of the edge at toe, and did you mention that it was duck bill?

My original post had all the details.
No its not really a duckbill toe, its sort of rounded at the bottom but toe is thicker at the centre and i sanded it to make it a bit thinner on sides
Cheers

Presume that'll be before shipping/import duties etc? All adds up quickly (especially once the shipping company puts their own "handling charges" on it!)

Lovely bat by the way @ibrartariq - RS certainly make a cracking stick
