My Payntr X mk3 pimple shoes. Theyíre super comfy, and probably the best cricket shoes I have ever worn, but the squishy bit between the upper and the sole really doesnít like toe drag at all. Iíve only worn them 4-5 times, but I think Iíll be looking for an alternative for next season.

With those kind of specs, you'll need some sort of compromise most likely. It sounds like a Trott profile on steroids, and we all know that regular Trott profiles don't come light very often! 40mm edges and 67mm spine is achievable in 2.10 if you go for a different profile, the point of a classic profile is to keep the meat in the middle 1.5-2 inch width of the bat throughout the blade, while maintaining a thin edge as you shouldn't need those to be thick for hitting the ball.

That being said, I'd be surprised if James attempted to make something he knew was impossible, so maybe he does have a cleft that light...

Gray Nicolls test bag has ripped linings inside after two seasons. Asics 200 shoes have sole coming apart from the upper after four seasons. B3 bat needs some tlc after four seasons.

Softs I change about three times a year so no danger of those ever wearing out!!

Winter in the market for a wheelie duffle, bat refurb, a cheap net/wet weather bat and the obligatory softs

I wish it was in English so I could understand what he was saying, there could be a great explanation for the methods used in there!

I wonder if there will be a ridge where the stickers are where the rest of the face has been scraped away?

I'd like to know who did the first repair and what they were trying to achieve with the drawing pins?!  :D

That bat is getting considerably narrower each refurb.

Certainly a novel approach, possibly not the way I'd do it.

Did they mention what was the final weight of this bat they made.

No they did not mention that.

Slazenger V800 which had a 'pig skin' on it, now I know why. I don't know if it's worth saving but I've glued it up and will see how it looks in a couple of days.
