Intend on staying fully B3'd up.

Just need to add a new bag as my current is pretty torn up and now lacking a few zips. And intend to a pair of the new CK10's from New Balance.

Excited for 2020.

Contemplating shorter bats - size 6s. I will net with them and see how I feel.
Title: Re: Your 2020 kit
Post by: WalkingWicket37 on December 09, 2019, 06:08:46 PM
@InternalTraining as you've said you'd size 6/3 bats are too light, could you contact a bat maker and get a new one made up that's heavier?

As opposed to wanting low density willow to make light big bats, you could request high density wood to make a 2lb11 size 6?

Just a thought, no idea if it's something easily achieved, but it can't hurt to ask the question :)
Title: Re: Your 2020 kit
Post by: InternalTraining on December 09, 2019, 07:54:41 PM
Yup. I experimented quite a bit with these bats configs...had couple heavier ones made as well - a 3lb-er from Laver and a 2-10 from MG2 which came a tad lighter. I am looking forward to winter nets to re-try these bats.

Title: Re: Your 2020 kit
Post by: SLA on December 10, 2019, 10:19:12 AM
My 2020 kit is the same as my 2019 kit.

Two B3 bats that I bought a couple of years ago both of which are now nicely knocked in, 1 set of B3 gloves, old GM pads from 2011, old GN boots from 200?, jockstrap and box from the 90s, pair of £10 white trainers from decathlon, 2 plain cotton shirts, V neck sleeveless sweater, 3 pairs of grey shorts, club cap.

My only addition is a new club sweater for cold drizzly games.

My GM Autograph has gone to Tom @Ayrtek Cricket for a reshape, I've gone with the unbranded online stockists gloves and pads combo (impressed with them), also got a SF stripper from OLS which is great, they're the new additions, will use my NB Gloves and pads for nets. Still to get a new Lid as my Hunts county one now smells horrendous. Halo sweat band too, Have an Ayrtel hybrid sweatband and bobble hat on the way too!

My lad is kitted out with all the Ayrtek softs and G1 Bat, new duffle from Tom too, Shrey lid, Kookaburra Blaze back up bat.

Something is wrong here, the young'un has better clobber than me!!!

@SOULMAN1012 - Nice kit - think I'd struggle to get that lot in the house!  Good range of gloves there, guess most must be similar then?

I will more than likely move on one or two full sets once Iíve given them all a go as although I have a lot of kit once it gets to the season I only use one set all year including only 1 bat, I did about 3 seasons ago use a different bat and softs each week and had a shocking season so now I only use one with a back up bat or two.
In terms of gloves I always have at least 3 sets as Iím very funny about gloves usually change at least once each innings ( if I bat long enough)

Have you used any of your kooks bats. I got charge4.0 and used it in net without it facing any ball before and no knocking in at all. After a decent session bat had no seem mark at all. Are your kooks the same if you have used them?

Thought I'd start with the bats, in true CBF style I couldn't make my mind up between a Red Ink and a B3 so I bought both! Then spotted the Chase offer so thought I'd give that a go also (this forum costs me way to much lol).

The Grey Red Ink is a copy that John made me of the White one, which has been my match bat for two seasons now H4L Hellfire g2, the B3 I picked up on EBay, I am led to believe it is a Luis Reece shape?  I'll do some reviews when I have more time.

Keeley & Pryzm kit

I plan to use either for matches

Keeley
Superior pads and gloves
Green Albion lid
Both bats are 2.10
Black 074 is grade 3
Blue 017 was allegedly for a pro (I suspect more likely Grade 2)
Worx duffle - pockets for pads in the side which is essential

Pryzm

Pro pads & gloves
Both bats 2.10
Big sticker is a custom Hunts County from a genuine ex pro player
Slim sticker was a Black Swan
Bag Iím not convinced about. Itís has no side pockets for pads which is a problem!!

My gear for 2020. Hopefully I play a full season after missing most of 2018 with a back injury and half of 2019 after doing my ankle ligaments! Only a few changes from last year with the addition of the chase bats and the Shrey wheelie duffle.

XX Kumba 2.9
XX Viper 2.9
XX Kamo 2.11
Chase Vortex 2.9
Chase FLC 2.9
Red Ink Middling bat 2.10

XX RR softs
Shrey Masterclass Titanium
Bespoke Strettons
Asics Gel Advance 6

Thanks. It only arrived today so a bit early to tell tbh. From what I could see earlier, half the base is solid/rigid and the outer half is not which at the moment makes it want to have a tendency to lean but i'm not sure I have pushed my gear down far enough as the bottom 6 inches of the bag feels empty. I need to have another look/experiment. The big draw for me was the 6 internal bat sleeves!

Half way through the season here in Australia but this is all my kit so far.

Bats -

Spartan mc1000 - Was my match bat for 2 seasons, Now just a net bat and comes out if i hit a form slump.
Gm Icon Signature - Have been using this bat in t20's and Indoor cricket.
New balance DC 580 - Was going to be my t20 bat but i just can't get on with the handle, Will probably sell this soon.
Gray Nicolls Silver - Newest Bat to the collection. Just about to start prepping it will probably be my main Bat for next season. Will need a 2nd grip as the handle is pretty thin.
Gm Mana Original L.E - My Main match bat for the last 3 seasons.


Pads -

Puma evo SE - Newest edition to the kit, Getting use to the ambi fit of the pads. No where near as comfy or protective as my legends, But super light feels like im wearing no pads at all. Biggest downer is the straps are just way to long.
Gray Nicolls Legends - My Main pads absolutely love them. No idea why i bought the puma's, the legends are only a season old.

Boots -
New balance Bowling spikes -  Was my Main spikes but they just feel super heavy on the feet so i needed to go for something a bit lighter.
Puma Bowling spikes 19.1 - Newest shoes wore them yesterday and today during games. Very snug down near the toes just needs to be broke in. Fairly comfy spikes and also lighter then my new balance spikes which is a big bonus in fielding.

Gloves -

Puma Evo se2 - Newest gloves quite comfy the missus bought me 4 pairs off amazon black friday sales. Won't need gloves for a long time.
Gm Icon -  Net gloves
Gm Original L.E - Match gloves
Gray Nicolls silver - Next match gloves. Have had these for 2 seasons but my gm's just wont break so they sit in the bag ready incase of emergency.

Helmet -

Shrey Master Class Air titanium. Super light and comfy helmet. Will need to replace the swoopa band soon.

How do the XX bats compare to the Chase? Do they have things in common to feel quite similar or are they very different?

Not had chance to use the Chase's yet as picked them up on Black Friday deals. In terms of feel and pick up, if I were to compare the two most similar profiles - the XX Kumba and Chase Flc, the feel is very similar. There's a noticeable difference in the handles - the XX's are very thin, I use tape + 2 grips or in some cases just 3 grips to get the thickness right on them.

Decided to try and go green. I might have become a FKW in the process.

Kook Kahuna 2.0 I picked up from the forum. Now oiled, knocked in, fibre tape/heli scuf added, handle more ovaled out and counter weight added so ready for the nets.
Kook Concept pads.
Kook Pro Players gloves.
Remfry thigh pads.
Albion 98.
Kook Pro tour bag.

For 'traditional' pads they are very nice. Quality instep and good materials all round. There is a bit of bobbeling(?) on the green inners so looking a little older than what they actually are. My other pads are pumas which are very light and snug so these will take a bit of getting used to.

As yourself I couldn't find any reviews so I bought them on a whim for 25 quid used so I didn't think I could go much wrong.

Weighed a Kook Concept Pro pad and it comes out at 974gr. The Pumas I have are about 200gr lighter so no wonder there's a difference in feel. Interesting take on materials though.

I play in the Home Counties premier cricket league, friendlies on Sundays, midweek T20 league on a Wednesday, and usually one friendly during the week against a touring side. No, not sponsored... I just like to buy stuff I donít really need.

I have been waiting for a parcel which finally arrived yesterday so here is my 2020 Kit (some might change as we go in to the new year tho)

Firstly here is last seasons Kippax kit - which  if I am being totally honest I was so happy with last year - Helped me score my first Ton in a few years and the best I have felt at the crease for a while too.

(https://i.postimg.cc/cJkr6tZp/FB5-B4-D48-6434-4100-9-D8-F-99592-A5-C36-E6.jpg) (https://postimages.org/)

But like all CBFs I wondered.....could there be something else for me.... (I would at this point like to blame @DorsetDan for his input and B3 purchasing)

As I then discovered how much B3 have improved over the years. When I saw his Finch 2stripe - which I later purchased. Which so began a lust for more....(with matching softs of course  I will be adding some more B3 gloves) The Imperium was purchased from @JTtaylor145 and is a gun! As is the 3 Stripe Custom which has its own thread.

I give you My Match kit for 2020 B3!

Last but by no means least This nice Keeley which was sourced by @Canners and purchased from Dan. Along with my 2018 pads and gloves. The Keeley Superior pads are incredible. Not sold on the bat yet if I am honest but have taken the scuff off today and given it a coat of oil to hopefully help the knocking process abit more.

Now for some wood.... The B3s are just unreal - ping for days!

A few changes from last year.
In - homemade butterfly stickered  XX cricket. Pressed and handled by Red Ink. Lovely performance.
Garage and Flack butterfly. I like this one.
Phantom G3. Total plank
Out - Salix Raw. A large piece flew off playing a defensive shot. Boo boo was a cracker.
Missing - Aldred supreme butterfly, on loan.

I will get rid of all my bats except the XX I shaped and the Garrard and flack as I need to raise some cash for a little business.
Pads - morrants International. Best pads ever. Puma calibre 5000. Will probably sell the pumas.

Gloves Puma platinum 5000. Iridium 5000, something else 4000. Love all these. Garrard and flack, unused but feel good. SG lite ate. Too small and tight.
Garrard and flack keeping gloves. Will never be used as I donít keep wicket!
Bag Slazenger pro tour. £20, had it 3 years and hasnít missed a beat. Brilliant.

I'm only a 100 odd posts in and so far I have changed every last bit of my own kit and my sons. I've got indian guys phone numbers who send me pictures of bats and all sorts.... run.... whilst you still can.


It all started by buying some new grips too......

I think my total lack of proper run scoring last season will keep me in check... For now  :D

Doesn't leave me with a nice, new bat to look at but it's a lot more appealing since my club brought in subsidised sessions with the club pro as part of the membership fee each season!

A pro bat with sharpie writing on the toe will score you way more runs

I have been offered a sponsorship with @Neon Cricket this season, and have placed an order for gloves, pads, black pads and a bag, plus stickers for my current sticks. I will be adding a Neon bat soon as well. Pics will follow, but at present:

Helmets- Shrey Ti with BCC embroidery, Masuri OS2 Ti.
Thigh pads- Aero P1
Pads- Neon white and black.
Gloves- Neon x 2 (for now)
Bag- Neon
Spikes- NB red from last season, potentially my old Nike Lunar Dominate which I occasionally use still.
Other bits- Ayrtek sweatband (I got the small, unbadged one), 2x Sidearms.
Potentially looking at keeping kit as well for my coaching commitments.
Bats- JP Gavan Featherblade (blue Neon stickers on route), B3 LE (pink stickers on route) and my Hunts (white stickers on route). Planning on getting a Neon in the near future as well.

Like I say, pictures will follow!

Hi all

My kit for the 2020 season is pretty much there but for a couple of items.

For the third season in a row I'll be sticking with Neon Cricket gear. There have been a couple of additions and updates since last season.

(https://i.postimg.cc/65tSzSpQ/20191231-205253.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/G9gqmXY0)

My bats have been refurbished to have the current stickers on them. My match bat from last year is retained (a pink reserve), and I've had a copy of it made in butterfly willow (a pink performance). I've also got a black reserve, this has a higher middle than I'd normally use but I did enjoy some (limited) success with this stick in 2018 so it stays in the roster.

I've got a new pair of the 2020 pads and gloves for the season, and am keeping last years pink pair of gloves for nets.

(https://i.postimg.cc/nrYWpK0Z/20191231-205431.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/4HyP19DF)

I've kept my green Masuri OS2 titanium helmet in the bag again. I bought this from Vitas cricket in 2017 and it's still going strong.
My aero P2 thigh pads are still in the bag but I'm not sure how long these will last. These have been sewed together more times than I'd like to think about and repairs are falling apart to the extent I can't re-sew them now. After 7 seasons it's time to accept these may be on borrowed time.
Also in the bag are my Oakley Radars, Aero P1 arm guard, Ayrtek D3O box and Adidas Howzat spikes.

(https://i.postimg.cc/RCcy7998/20191231-205326.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/5j2sJhXq)

And lastly my luggage. This year I'm going with the Neon Cricket wheelie duffle for my gear and the individual training bag for my clothes and other bits I carry.

I'm pretty much there with my kit for the 2020 season. The only additions are likely to be a pair of trainers (something Adidas) for nets/training/warm ups and a new thigh pad set.
I'm hoping Stretton Fox launch their new thigh pads in time for the start of the season, if not a new set of Aero P2s are the likely purchase.

Slowly pulling mine together, lid, Stretton, box etc same as last season and my Advance 6ís. Bats wise Iíve changed it up a bit to these 3 with the blank being cleaned up from last year and my other match bat sold. Bat stickers to match the Softs are in production after peer pressure to get some sorted to tie everything together.

New mums and dads set as these were meant to be for last season but turned up slightly later than anticipated. Ordering some of the new BOA SL22 Boosts then thatís me done ready for another year in the WEPL if I can hold down a first team spot now Iím no longer captain.

Light and comfortable. Apart from Morrants Puma are my favourite, particularly 2 strap.
I have 2 arthritic knees so flexible lightweight pads are the order of the day. The fact that theyíre close fitting is another huge plus.

Had a really fun day trying to pick out my bats for this year. Managed to narrow it down to just over 60 that I will consider using...

Gear I will probably use and the bats I managed to use last year. Only update has been the new GN box, the Blue Tinted Ayrtek - courtesy of Jake @Vitas Cricket , and the Aggot ball. (Looking to improve my seam position) I've been rather unlucky for the past 2 seasons as I've had gout Flare ups which have lasted over a month during both seasons, so spent them accumulating bats instead it seems...

Yeah, it's tough, but just played with 2 different ones last year, just a shame I struggle to play as much cricket these days!

How do you manage to knock these bats in? That's a lifetime job for an individual  :o



I tend to knock in whatever I feel like using, and give them all a bit of knocking when I receive them! I don't knock in too much, and haven't really had many breakages. I just spend most of my time rounding edges and knocking in the toes!

this has changed already. B3 has been sold. 2 new additions. A kippax colossus off eBay for a very good price. Taps up probably better than anything Iíve had!  Not particularly pretty, and heavily conclaves as the colossus always has been. Picks up well. 2í13.

Also picked up a monster of a kookaburra ghost. Itís massive. Pictures donít do it justice at all! Also pings very nicely but does need knocking in! Looks good for a supposed grade 4. Iíd give it a 2 at least. 2í15 with 2 grips. Nice shape handle.

Will be starting nets on weds with the kippax. May sell the GM

I got that Kippax originally from the factory in early 2018. Was a great bat, used it for about half a season and sold it on. It definitely looked a lot better before it had all that oil!

Oh nice! Although this is where brands selling their stickers to the public can be an issue. ĎA single season of useí was the ad and of course has the new stickers. Iím not particularly bothered because I got it for a good price regardless but it just goes to show you have to be careful! Itís been well cared for and I will continue to look after it. As for the colouring, the light in that room isnít the best so I donít think it looks that bad. Iím in the middle of giving it a light refurb anyway.

Current bats for potential personal use in 2020. With the possible addition of the G-N Kronus Halestorm featured elsewhere in Your Kit.

Left to right, my choice of bats tend to be higher middle, in medium or heavier weights.

Millichamp & Hall MH09 2lb 14oz

Gunn and Moore Neon Limited 2lb 10oz

Millichamp & Hall Amplus shape 2lb 13oz refurbished with Player Elite branding, unused since then. Very pleased with the refurb service from M&H, no before photos unfortunately.

Millichamp & Hall MH09 2lb 12oz recently purchased from a forum member via eBay, very pleased indeed with this acquisition.

Future plans are to trim down one of the used M&H bats for a healthy price to offset the most recent acquisition, patiently explore what GM Eclipse or Diamond high end grade deals are forthcoming, mix it up a bit with a lower middle bat.

Yes, MH09, introduced around 2015, was formerly the Amplus. The MH09 was itself subsequently replaced by the Player Elite, although M&H sometimes resurrect the previous versions in a limited run, as is the case with the bat on the right. Shaping is a higher middle and minimal concaving.

Finally got round to uploading photos! Adam @Neon Cricket is supporting me this season, but even if I wasn't on the sponsorship scheme I would be waxing lyrical about all of the kit I have got from him!

Bats R-L:
B3 Shape 19 2lb9, 3 Stripe LE, now Neon Pink.
Neon Green Pro Players 2lb9
Hunts Pro 2lb10 - bought stickerless on eBay a couple of years back, now Neon White.
JP Gavan Professional Plus 2lb9.5 - copy of my first B3, Neon Black stickers on the way.
Ace Players LE 2lb8.5 - hand chosen by myself from Fricky's stock when in Aus, Neon Orange stickers on the way.
Neon Coaching/Fielding bat.

Not shown: JP Gavan Featherblade 2lb8, now sporting Neon Blue stickers.

Gloves:
2x Neon
1x Ace Players - used for indoor nets/training as I don't want to spoil my good gloves before the season eventually starts.
1x Neon Black gloves - on their way some time once Adam has them delivered.

Pads:
Neon - absolutely love these. Look great, felt perfect straight out the bag.
Ace Players - will be used under clads in the short term for coloured kit fixtures until...
Neon Black - as with the gloves, pre-ordered. Wouldn't be right for the mid-week captain to not look the part!

Helmets:
Masuri OS2 Test Ti - got this as a bargain from Lorimers on eBay last season.
Shrey Masterclass Air 2 Ti with club embroidery - hadn't planned to get one of these yet, but an error on the last order meant there was one sat in stock, I tried it on and it fitted so bought it.

Not shown: Shrey Masterclass Air Ti in blue, Albion Elite Pro Ti in navy and green.

Protection:
Ayrtek sweatband/armguard
Aero P1 Strippers - I had been planning to hold out for the new Strettons or order a set of Remfry, but I got pinned a few times on the machine before Xmas so ordered what I could get quickly. Still tempted to go for Strettons once they are available.
ShockDoctor strap and box.

Bags:
Neon wheelie duffle - great quality, I just need a bigger car boot.
Adidas XT2.0 Duffle - likely to be used for coloured kit.
GN Prestige - got this as a sample for club embroidered bags, but ended up paying for it to keep as all kit orders are currently on the back burner surprisingly enough.

Spikes:
NB CK10 Red - used these last season.
NB CK10 Green - managed to get these at an absolute steal on eBay a few weeks ago brand new.

Not shown:Nike and Asics from a few years back.

Other bits:
Sidearm Pro and Elite.
Skullcandy Air Raid speaker.
Resistance Bands/Foam Roller.
Agility Ladder.

A couple of extra pics of the Neon Green - got this on one of @Neon Cricket Friday flash sales on a whim. Absolute gun.

A quick update to my post in April, my "Millichamp & Hall Amplus shape 2lb 13oz refurbished with Player Elite branding" was sold on eBay as planned and was in fact purchased by the "MyCricketGear" guy on Instagram, who posted an unboxing of it, which was a bit weird to see. It is still appearing in the background of some of his posts, easy to spot in the distinct turquoise-ish colour scheme.

Think he's pretty open on his Instagram that he's going to sell off all the bats he doesn't want to keep in the reasonably near future.
