Title: Scott cricket bats
Post by: jonny77 on November 17, 2019, 09:48:42 PM
So here's a look at the bats I've been producing and the first set of stickers I've had made, in white and black. All bats are pre-pressed part mades, which I shape and finish myself by hand obviously.

I've just started an Instagram page so would appreciate a follow if anyone is willing.

I'm absolutely loving every part of the process, but obviously learning all the time. So any feedback/constructive criticism is appreciate :D

Let me know what you think...

Top work mate, really like the look of them!

Very nice. Smart and clean stickers on sweet sticks.

Seeing as Iím called Scott and have a white rose tattoo I think I am obviously top of the list of people to endorse these products..... I wouldnít bring much exposure to the brand outside of my family mind!

Cheers fellas, appreciate the comments.

@ScottParko its like they were designed for you! However Scott is my surname and the white rose obviously a nod to where I was born, raised and still based. Although the rose is optional onnthe bats obviously! How many people in your your family play cricket tho? :D

Look really good mate, great to see someone new trying there hand and actually being involved in the making as opposed to adding stickers to pre-made bats.
Big fan o the front and toe stickers, not so keen on the top back sticker but thatís just me, at least itís different to just matching the back sticker.
Profiles look really good mate and decent sized bats.

Wow these look great! Love the profiles and the stickers are classy but modern. I'm a fan! Top work :)

Look far better than Luke Wright's brand efforts already! 

Love the Yorkshire rose! Only comment would be that I'd change the 'hand crafted in England' font to something less generic and more sophisticated, but I think they look top notch and that is just nit picking really.

Thanks mate, appreciate the feedback. Especially from someone who's owned their fair share of willow!  :D

I appreciate the stickers might not be to everyone's taste, but I wanted to put my own personality into them a bit too and the Scott logo was my design from the start, so wanted this on the back.

Thanks again for taking the time to comment, all feedback is really helpful and appreciated!

Thanks mate, that's great feedback! I had a lot of help with the stickers obviously, so can't take all the credit. I just had the initial idea of the logo, layout and how I wanted them to look.  So I actually asked for the 'Handcrafted' part to be changed to this style, as it was originally in joined up/older style font  which I didn't think fitted in with the rest of the stickers :(  :D Definitely something to consider in the future though.

These bats were not shaped to anyone's requirements and were to promote and show people the initial product. I suppose they're made to my idea of nice profiles, so really glad you like them.  Obviously we all differ, so I'm not planning on having stock shapes as such.

I like the front stickers but there is something about the back ones that just don't seem right. Might be the coverage of the bat on the front and then so much wood on the back, not sure. Anyway, I like them.

Post by: jonny77 on November 18, 2019, 09:30:25 AM
Thanks, appreciate you taking the time to comment mate and understand where you're coming from. I did toy with a white background on the back, but thought they'd have just been a bit 'Adidas' and generic.
Title: Re: Scott cricket bats
Post by: SouthpawMark on November 18, 2019, 09:50:03 AM
Iíd go for clear stickers at the front, rather than coloured stickers at the rear. Show off as much of the lovely willow as you can.

I must admit Iím actually a Durham lad! The tattoo is a sentimental thing relating to a lost uncle, so I would take advantage of the option without the rose to be fair! Weíve got a big family of cricketers like, still not sure I can reach far though!

Very nice sticks nonetheless, might have to nudge the good lady and remind her the fat man is due next month!

They just need moving down 3 or 4 inches.
They're just too high and cover too much of the splice.
Easy fix.
Lovely work, fella!

@jonny77 I think 3 inches is maybe a bit much but down a touch might work.  Hope you don't mind me doing this to your pic?

Not at all mate, appreciate the help and any feedback is always welcome too.

The bottom one looks odd to me, but can see the benefit of the slight adjustment in the top one maybe.

Work and sorting my workshop space has taken priority over everything recently, but will be devoting more time to it in the new year. I'll update with pics as and when if possible.

@jonny77 I totally agree with you - i think it is only an inch or max of 2, the bottom one is closer to 3 and i think it is too much too, but do think a touch of space helps it stand out and the graphic is really good too.  With teh profile of bats it may change it in real life but may be worth a nudge down to see what you think.

Gonna try and update regularly on the bats I'm shaping as I go along this year, as it's the kind of thing I love to see on the forum, so hope others like the posts  :D

Here's a couple I've had on the go on the past few days since I've finally had some time and willow.....

First is a G2. Can't really see the grains but it's really clean and is gonna be a lovely bat as taps up really well.

(https://i.postimg.cc/0NrM25rt/20200106-193843.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/Nyqfdc6T)

Next is a G3/Butterfly. Lovely grains on the face apart from the knot/stain. Still taps up really well tho, so although no looker it'll be a lovely stick.

Those two look great! Bit of a Chase low middle profile happening on the Grade 3 it seems.

Great job.
Title: Re: Scott cricket bats
Post by: jonny77 on January 07, 2020, 01:33:31 PM
Thanks mate. Thought I'd make that up with the lower middle as the blemish is fairly high. Both go really well tho, with the G3 having smaller edges, slightly higher spine but more concaving than the G2.

Appreciate the feedback.

Post by: Komdotkom on January 30, 2020, 08:33:34 PM
Nice work, I like the shape too.
The sad thing about polishing the bats to the 'Northern Monkey' standard is that people don't look after them and in a couple of months you can't even tell that it ever looked that good. I saw a bat last night at training that I refurbed for a bloke, it looks like he's been keeping it in a cement mixer! Some people are just vandals.
Title: Re: Scott cricket bats
Post by: jonny77 on January 30, 2020, 09:57:59 PM
Thanks fellas. I agree, it's a lot of work for what can be a short lived effect obviously.

However I just want to do the best work I can. So whether it's a refurb or new bat, seeing it all shiny and new is rewarding for me. At least I know at the point I'd handing it over it looked as good as it could.

Yeah this one is my kind of shape too, lovely profile! 😁

That is a beautiful finish - in the pics it brings out so much detail in the structure of the willow!
Indeed, Northern Monkey has taken things to a whole new level, and has certainly lifted my expectations of how a bat should be finished.
Your bats look fantastic, so congrats on a job superbly done :)

Like the workshop too!

Looks very nice. What's the spine height and edge depth? Is the first picture showing that it doesn't fit through the gauge?

There's quite a sharp gradient from maximum on spine into the duckbill. Is this a special feature of your design to get better pickup?

It's 2lbs 12oz, spine stops it going through the gauge, so it's probably 69mm ish. Edges are about max in the gauge, so 40mm ish. I'm not overly fussed about specs myself so haven't measured it. Its more about feel and performance for me. This part made was sourced from someone who knows how to press a bat and it really pings all over. As you can see in the Insta video 😁

 I made this for a guy I play with who wanted something lighter than his current bat, which is about 2lbs 15oz but he let me choose the shape as he didn't really mind and I just love this profile. It's a fairly common one tbf, but I just think it picks up really well while allowing for plenty of wood low down.

This may just be the bats of yours I've seen (and they all look stunning) but they mostly seem to be low or mid low middles? Have you considered trying a shape with a higher middle?
Title: Re: Scott cricket bats
Post by: SOULMAN1012 on February 12, 2020, 07:58:06 AM
Itís a very nice and popular shape at the moment, personally I would like to see this shape have a slightly more Square toe for two reasons. Firstly the bat is huge and he square toe just gives the visualisation itís even bigger in the stance and set up giving the payer even more confidence. Secondly itís just in vogue lol.

The spine into duckbill looks similar to the new Powerbow which is said by most to have the best pick up in there range to looks like a winning profile to me for a mid/low shape buddy. Finishing looks stunning as well so looks like the brands coming on leaps mate

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah most have been quite low middles, I suppose because I've tended to lean to these as I believe they suit UK pitches better and are also my preferred shape. Although they are also made to requirements, so no problem in making higher middle bats. Will be putting a few stock shapes together, so will be a mid and higher mid in within that.

Appreciate the feedback and take it all onboard.

Itís a very nice and popular shape at the moment, personally I would like to see this shape have a slightly more Square toe for two reasons. Firstly the bat is huge and he square toe just gives the visualisation itís even bigger in the stance and set up giving the payer even more confidence. Secondly itís just in vogue lol.

The spine into duckbill looks similar to the new Powerbow which is said by most to have the best pick up in there range to looks like a winning profile to me for a mid/low shape buddy. Finishing looks stunning as well so looks like the brands coming on leaps mate

Funnily enough that's one of the shapes I liked coming back into playing cricket recently, so probably influenced me. I take the square toe onboard but just concerns me on the durability. Although this could be specified obviously.

Again, appreciate the feedback mate. It really helps!

Little bump looking for any feedback (good or bad) on this shape etc. Or any tips or thoughts, as all helps the development 😁

Love the shape of the bat and finish. Will duck bill profile with low middle give better pick up than a mid or high middle?
Title: Re: Scott cricket bats
Post by: jonny77 on February 12, 2020, 05:16:29 PM
For me pick up is a very subjective thing, but generally anything with a lower middle is said to not pick up as light as a mid or high middle. However I think this one it's well balanced and has plenty of wood up high too, so picks up well at 2lbs 12. I use 2lbs 9 - 2lbs 10 and it feels great to me.

Thanks mate, appreciate the feedback. I use a Hyfin compound and a mop on bench grinder. Its not an expensive route to go down really, depends what you want to achieve and how many you're doing I suppose. I use The Polishing Shop for the mops and compound, really helpful and knowledgeable.

Picks up great to me mate, but all subjective obviously. There's plenty all the way up the blade and in the shoulders, so it's balanced nicely.

The sweat spot/middle is around 180mm from the toe, so not stupidly low either.  This is my prefered shape/weight/pick up, so would be happy keeping this one

Shaped up this Grade 2 today. Lovely bit of willow with graping right in the middle and it really pings off it. Just goes to show that loads of grains, no blemishes, doesn't always equal top performance. This one really goes! Big bat at what will be 2lb 11 oz finished but picks up so well.

Yeah it's a big bat, spine is huge and theres very minimal concaving. It's currently the same weight as the one above, but bigger and there's more in the toe too.  Not a shape I'd use personally but it's a great bat.

A few bats done recently. The bottom one is my new stick. Low middle, minimal concaving and just fitting through  the gauge at 2lbs 10oz. Angled the toe 'Aldred style' with it slightly squarer at the back as a bit of an experiment and cos I'm a bat tapper! 😆

The others were for customers and made to spec. The first a big G1 at 2lbs 12oz. The second is a G3 and customer asked for a fuller profile, so smaller edges but still a good size at 2lbs 9oz. Lovely clefts all of them.

Let me know your thoughts. Feedback as always is welcome...

Looking good bud, particularly your own bat. Fan of the angled toe, find it feels nicer in the crease if nothing else.

Thanks mate, appreciate that. Yeah I like the angled toe on mine, but wouldn't do them as standard I don't think as maybe not everyone's taste?

I do them on all my bats, lads at my club who've used them or had a look only seem to say positive things so may be more popular than you think. Not exactly a big change tbf, but those who notice like it.

Interesting mate, I'll keep that in mind and the reason I ask for feedback on here so i can keep developing 👍

Top bat was based on an MRF for a guy in Germany, lovely big bat at 2lbs 10oz.

Second one is yet to finish and was a referral from someone who bought bat 4 in my recent sale thread. One of his team mates saw the bat on Saturday and wanted something similar, but with a marginally higher middle.

As always, let me know your thoughts! 😁

Out of interest, what sort of thickness is that duckbill toe on the 2-10 given its 'heft around the middle'?
Title: Re: Scott cricket bats
Post by: jonny77 on July 16, 2020, 06:52:32 AM
22mm at the edge of the toe, 25mm centre.

Shaped up a lovely Grade 1+ today, beautiful grains!

Inspired by the Screaming Cat in Kulli's thread I fancied playing around with a more traditional profile with smaller edges and high extended spine throughout. Spine is 65/66mm and edges around 33/34mm. Just under 2lbs 11oz but picks up nicely

This could be available in the bat makers shed shortly. As always, let me know your thoughts....

Thanks, appreciate that.

Also always looking for any constructive criticism, possible areas of improvement or ideas. Also admitting you don't like on the bats. Just as important as the passive feedback imo.

I like your branding but I think the grade sticker on the front is too large and perhaps superfluous.

Thanks mate, all useful feedback and its something I'll be looking at when I do new stickers tbh, as I'd highlighted it myself. I've already got a few ideas of how is like the stickers to look on the front.

I've tried them without the grading stickers but personally feel they look better with them. They're easily removed tho too if required.

Appreciate you taking the time to comment mate 👍

Just been informed I've been made redundant, so not working now and to lift the gloom I self prescribed some bat making therapy today! 😁 Will be around 2lbs 10.5oz when fully sanded and dressed. Love this shape, it's huge and really pings!

As always, let me know your thoughts....positive or negative! 👍

Cheers mate, appreciate it. It was expected tbh the longer we were on furlough and all 5 others doing my role are in the sme boat. 3 month notice tho, so plenty of time to find something else.....and make more bats! 😁

That looks amazing. No one in their right mind would pass up a bat and a shape like that!

Don't mind the grade sticker, I'd just come up with your own names for them like GM with 606,808, signature,le etc

Would look better than G1+, G1, G2 imo

Bats look amazing though some great shapes and bug bats!! Keep it up!!!

You could use the worst to best Yorkshire towns as your grading system...
'I got a Scott Bradford the other day'... Check out my 'Scott York' LOL.

Love the shapes and I'm very sorry you've been made redundant! I hope you can find something good soon.

😂 Could cause some offence tho that! Plus there's no bad places in Yorkshire, everyone knows that!

Thanks mate. Great idea but I prefer to keep it simple, as think the 606, 808, Performance Grade etc can confuse a little and I like to be upfront, honest and straightforward. Appreciate the feedback though mate, means a lot

Will finish up just over 2lbs 10oz with the scuff sheet. Not the prettiest but it really pings and as you can see is a fair old lump! 😆
