Title: Jos Butlerís bats
Post by: Ajdal on February 28, 2019, 01:09:20 PM
Who makes Jos Butlerís bats? Lovely profile as always on his bats.
Seriously this has nothing to do with his 150 odd last night  ;)

Not sure, but I have one of them in my bag if you want me to throw up some pics so that those with an eye for these things can tell you?

Don't kookaburra insist on pros using their own bats?

By that I mean I'm aware that pros have bats made elsewhere, but I thought Kook were quite clear that they have their own guy(s) making their sponsored player bats?

Thatís the public stance of most of the bog makers, however in reality...

I added the extra twine as I think it helps protect for shoulder splits. Other than that anyone recognise any traits?

@Kulli , how is the ping of this bat?
Title: Re: Jos Butlerís bats
Post by: Kulli on March 01, 2019, 06:07:18 AM
Wonít get too carried away but would say itís above average.

It is huge for the weight.
Title: Re: Jos Butlerís bats
Post by: jamielsn15 on March 01, 2019, 07:22:50 AM
I guess its also dependent on which the country the pro is playing in at the time...

Hereís the shape for the 1-2 that asked, weight of this one is a shade over 2í7 with stickers and a regular grip.

That is a kook made bat, have a blaze pro in the shop with exactly the same shoulders and handle

Yeah from looking at photos it does seems he uses Kook made bats. They look a bit more of a fuller shape than the off-the-shelf Kahuna though.

This one is a pretty Ďstandardí SH length blade.

Does the spine run into the toe? It does on the std Kahuna doesn't it? Nice looking bat regardless.

No, Jos' bats seem to have more of a duckbill shape

Had a damaged toe, presumably why Jos Gave it away. Someone who bought it at a charity auction was flogging it on. Figured it was repairable so got Tom Line to graft a corner on it and refurbed it.

Very surprising as I've always thought his bats must be exceptional given the distance of some of his hits (even when slightly mistimed but obviously taking no credit away from his batting talent).

I'd wager you could give him 'rubbish' bats that score no runs in the hands of most forum members and he'd find a way to hit massive sixes

Oh I have no doubts about this! But I always imagined him to have some cracking bits of willow.

Aside from having more hand eye coordination in his little finger than we have as a forum combined, I imagine years of training, specialised fitness work and having access to some of the best coaches in the world also help.

Their fitness level, timing, and hand eye coordination is just at another planet.

Anyone has any intel on the specialized fitness work Roy and Buttler do?

I remember something in the Telegraph (I think) about Buttler's training, it seemed more focused on his wicket keeping from what I recall. No doubt it is behind a paywall on their website somewhere.

I'd be pretty surprised to be honest if it was particularly batting specialised. Strength wise probably something built around variations of bench/squat/deadlift with some dynamic and power movements. Most likely in the gym about 3 days a week, lots of exercises like medicine ball throws and things with resistance bands, not training particularly heavy and lots of rehab on any niggling injuries.

Butler apparently doesn't do any gym work.  Cricket-specific training I understand
