Title: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: petehosk on August 30, 2011, 10:26:12 AM
With the darker evenings slowly rolling in and the cricket season drawing to an end, I notice that people are already starting to think about what cricket fashions to wear next season!
So rather than posting in the 2011 kit topic (Soooo last year!) I thought it best to start next seasons topic to see if anyone is so well prepared that they already know what they'll be using! So who'll be the first?

PS. Our Australian friends can feel free to either keep posting in 2011, or they can even show us which trends to expect for next season!?  8)

Bat still going strong as are pads etc but may treat myself to a new set of gloves :)
Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: Johnny on August 30, 2011, 11:01:38 AM
Bat:Will either be getting a CF Premier Cru or a SAFbats Hades (or possibly even both!).

Softs:Will prob get CF PPR1 gloves and matching pads if I can stretch to it. (otherwise will continue with my H4L pads)

Fancy a new bag too - eyeing up a Hunts County Almighty at the moment, or I might split my kit out into a duffle for equipment and a sports bag for clothing.

Definitely in the market for new spikes - fancy going down the spiked trainer route, but again, that's dependant on funds.

If i play at all next season (awaiting mra scan results) then i will be needing new kit to replace the kit i sold when i stopped playing and needed a new clutch!

Kept my trusty strippers, aero box, keeping gloves and whites, but the rest will have to be purchased. Exciting times though when all new kit is actually needed!

The only thing i actually need to buy is a helmet. But there's often a few good deals going around on here in the off season so always worth looking out for something!

Don't expect to acquire any additional hardware for next season, apart from the SAF bat that is due.

Gotten some interesting new pads this week, but gloves are fine, and I'm not suffering on the bats front....

Now that you mention helmets, I actually fancy an Ayrtek lid lol out of the price range (even the new cheaper version). This turned out more like a wish list for 2012 lol

M&H have got a sale on down here in Taunton at the moment Haider. I think it's 20% off which is about as low as it gets for a new bat from them.

I won't be here until end of April so I can't really buy a lot of stuff at the moment! But I'm thinking either SAF or H4L when I get back, as my softs are on the wane!

Going to make quite a few changes to my kit for next season. Going all H4L so going to be selling my Redback softs and I'm probably going to change from a large kitbag to a duffle and smaller bag as well. Haven't decided what to do with my Paradox LE yet - it's barely been used and is playing second fiddle to the Hattori at the minute.

Bat: H4L Hattori
Softs: H4L Hattori (to buy)
Lid: Masuri
Bag: Duffle and small holdall (to buy)
Spikes: Asics Gel Advance 3's

I have the kook... g3 on looks, but a good size for a 2.9 bat and a nice shape with decent pick up, I haven't bounced a ball on it as my son is sleeping and that is more than my life is worth.  the Orange stickers aren't to my taste!

as for the package at the post office... well Andy saf doesn't have my home address, but mike does...
it might be something totally not cricket related, but I'm not expecting anything. needless to say i'll be first in the queue at the post office tomorrow...

I have just been on the Greg Chappell cricket store website and seen some of the prices on bats for the coming season.
The top of the line GN, Kooka, GM etc are all $750 or thereabouts. That's equivalent to 450. Ridiculous prices

Post by: Johnny on August 30, 2011, 10:39:47 PM
cheers that would be good bats with SAF Shield  ;)

Here goes:

"You would have seen that we have the Ultima project readied for 2012 and this allows you to pick the look, feel and name of your bat. This will be the very best on offer, as you get all this and top advice on getting the best from your bat.

The rest of the range is as follows
1) ORIGIN
2) INFINITY (plus POWER X option)
3) HADES Ltd Edition run of only 200 bats (fcfs basis)
4) MECH10

The Origin is going to be the new classic shape from SAF it is an enhancement of the Fabrica and Andy feels it elongates the playing area of the blade without comprimising any of the best bits of the original design


The Infinity is the our "T20" Andy puts that in inverted commas because people use the bat in normal cricket.  The Audax design has been tweaked making it less concaved but still has the low toe edges and higher spine to provide balance and power.  It provides the power you need for T20 but also the balance doesn't comprise your ability to play those cuts, the back foot game abd the swing feel for front game if required. Because of all those factors we decided to offer the Infinity next year in a full size blade option for those that dont want that shorten blade.


The Mech10 is SafBats stock shape (to be fully revealed later this year) based around the bat that won the 2010 award from All Out Cricket it was an easy decision to tweak the shape, enhance the edges to fit the modern look but retain the exceptional balance of the original design. It is effectively a mix of the Erus edge and the Fabrica spine. So far the feedback has been very positive as we have used a local college and its cricketers and local clubs to blind test the bats and get feedback from them during pre-season and the summer.


The Hades is a new concept from Andy, one he's pretty attached to. The Bats concept was a techie one. It was mapped out on paper and theoretical calculations worked out. Then various iterations of the bat made up, the final design is a bat that brings into play the techie performance areas of the bat in the hitting area based on its pressing, swing weight, balance. They are all fine tuned and tested and he loves them..  The shape you'll see in good time but these will be strictly limited to a 200 run.


The last bat on that roster would be the Ultima, this is a pretty simple proposition. As we find those rare clefts of willow that are either aesthetically beautiful, incredibly oversized or Andy feels will be pure performance above and beyond any G1. We set them aside for people to choose the profile, look and colours of their bat. A truly personal bat to them. A one off"

I've only just stocked up on full M&H Distinction gear (ashamedly and literally everything!) so I guess that will hopefully last me another few season or two...The gloves and bat are looking very precious though, so may get a few other options on those fronts for net practice.

Indeed, I like to look at new gear, but never been bothered about switching all my pads etc because they don't match my new spikes. My stuff tends to get used till it's knackered, which is a while the way I bat.

I admit to being a bat hoarder, but that's not about fashion... Pete will understand...

Pads last ages, and gloves about a season.

Bat(s) - Salix Rogue and hopefully a Warsop Platinum or Puma Iridium 6000 gtr very soon..
Pads - GM 909 d30s
Gloves - GM d30 Limited Edition and Warsop Platinum Pros

Helmet remains Albion Club Mark II with Ayrtek Titanium Grill (recent acquisition) with Aero P2 Protectors aswell as Newbery Duffle Bag to lug it all in.

Still haven't found the perfect wheelie bag....which could be what i keep an eye out for between now and next season...

However,

Will get some pictures up when I have it all/most of it:

Bats: L&W Reserve + L&W Legend (net bat)
Gloves: H4L LE's small mens (to order) + GM Orignal
Pads: GN e41 1000le
Helmet: Masuri Titanium
Bag: GN Legend
Protection: GN Legend thighpad + Le deux sports inner.

I may get some aero p2's in December, but not sure.

With the Laver's, I had a bit of a setback with the funds (family reasons) and Andy and James were nice enough to allow me to put a large deposit down so the work could get started so I could hopefully have the bats by my first game, then I would simply pay the remainder as soon as I made up the difference, which isn't too far away. Some may think that is strange, but this way the process will have been underway for a little bit then I would simply pay the rest and have the bats soon after, rather then starting 2/3 weeks later and not having a bat for 3 or 4 games. I am very appreciative of them for allowing me to do that, so you guys can look forward to reading an extremely good review from me about them.

Gloves: Kook Ice 850s x2
Protection: Hawk thighpad set currently (shock might get replaced)
Box: Shock Dr
Lid: Masuri Ti
Shoes: Nike Span 7's with some help from Brian and Brenda/Asic gel gully 2 (for when I have to bowl- about twice a season these days!)

If the bats arrive I will add some pics at a later date...


Missing from the pics are 2 SAF Bats, one with Dom being mended and one in the post...

Just found these in the loft! Bought them around 3 years ago for 30 brand new. They were made for Niall O'Brian to use in the world cup, but Puma accidentally made them right handed when Niall is left handed. Used about twice, didn't fit so must have put them in the loft... will now add to my kit for next season! :D

Yeah mine is a pretty decent bat, not the prettiest of bat's grains wise but performs well, its not as good as my Hell4leather but then again the H4L is the best bat I've ever used. Its the only warrior bat I've ever had so I couldn't say how good they are overall.

Thought I'd add some pictures of my 2012 kit to the thread, as I'v ebeen playing with a new toy. There is another bat to add to this lot which I am led to believe is going to turn up this week...

How do you find the triumph pads Tim?
If I was a normal sized batsman, I'd find them rather large, but being very tall, they fit very well. I originally had the OSM version, which were far too big, even on me (my inside leg is about 35") so reverted to the standard mens.

nice kit mate, i like the morrants pads, have you tried them out yet? only they look brand spankers 


Sorry mate, only just saw this!

Used the pads 2 or 3 times and are very nice! Feels a little weird at first as they have no knee roll so the usual padding isn't there although I've been hit twice and not felt a thing. Only issue so far is that they're very white, and my whites are not so looks very village!

That's not even the best part, they electronically recline so its super awesome :D. They are cup holders yes.

Not a dedicated media room, just our lounge room but it is basically like a media room.

It is the snake/scale grip which feels best for and I buy them from GCCC. They use to be made by kook and came in white, but are now made by GN and only came in black which sucked.

My gear for 2012 is the same as last year's gear, except I have now added a Mongoose CoR3 Premium bat to my collection as well.

I really wish I had a decent camera to show it off in all of it's glory. Didn't really need the bat to be honest, but got it at a price where I couldn't say no! Still might leave my hands before the start of the season mind!

Is spending more than XYZ on a cricket bat necessary, when the club probably has some, or you can get one for 50 from any half decent sports shop? Cricket in itself isn't a necessity, so why shouldn't one indulge? Think of Petehosk for example, he has more bats than I have career runs (must be close anyway!), some people like to collect rocks, some stamps, some STI's (snigger snigger), and CD likes to collect cricket kit! He probably uses all of it anyway! Haha

Wasim Akram was here (in Canada) so took Legend because I thought Legend deserves Legendary treatment lol

Mohammad Yousuf and co one I was in Lahore so I went to camp and got it signed.

In 2011 it was BlackCat Shadow (old stcikers one) but in 2012 it will change most likely because I got new bats injected lol

Straight on the twine. I tried them and found them to be comfortably the worst grips I have ever used but apparently if you use Aero gloves they work great! I think they were designed to be used together..........

Yeah, if you use them without Aero gloves then they aren't very grippy. But with the Aero gloves, they're really soft and comfortable and really, really, really grippy

Post by: kieranl73 on December 17, 2011, 01:28:53 PM
would you say the quality of the aero gloves overrides the design or are they not much different to normal gloves?
Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: Joe on December 17, 2011, 04:03:52 PM
They feel pretty different one to normal gloves. At first I found I was gripping the bat too hard because they're pre-bent and you don't have to try as hard.

(http://i1218.photobucket.com/albums/dd409/dcoy7/Snapbucket/19E40D31.jpg)

A bit about each: left to right
The Gn just came back from a refurb it was originally a Nitro Pro performance that I bought at the end of the 2010 season. It's now stickered up as a Quantum LE. Superb bat, does have some surface cracks. Weighs in around 2.7-2.8.
Next is my Millichamp and Hall Solution. It was a custom made one, I went up and chose it all, my first milli and most probably my match bat for next year. 2.8 in weight.
Next is a grade 4 bleached willow woodworm that I am (fingers crossed) getting signed by Pietersen in Thursday. Got from Hit4six in a swap deal.
The kooka has been my indoor match bat and bowling machine bat, bout it from aidy1098
on eBay for sily cheap money. 2.7, Blade 250. Looks and is so much better than a 250.

Last is a Hunts County beauty. The grains and rebound is phenomenal. A light bat at 2.7, hoping to get some stickers from buzz to dress it up.
All bats could be sold.

Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: Bruce on December 18, 2011, 09:41:16 PM

Finally sorted most of my kit for 2012.

Bag - Adidas
Gloves - GM Original LE 2011. 2012 Original LEs on their way.
Pads - Salix Pro 2011 (excellent pads, can't convince myself to change them)
Helmet - Albion Ultimate 98.
Thigh pads - Adidas from 2010
Box: Aero
Bat1 - TK made pro bat with Mongoose ToC stickers. 12 grains, 2lb11oz with one and a half grips. Very long middle and goes like a train. It was a Pro bat and pressed slightly differently than standard TK bats. Was sold with a caution that it will go like a gun but possibly last me one or maybe 2 seasons depending on the amount of cricket I play / use the bat.
Bat2 - (almost custom) Salix Strike. 12 grains with some heartwood. 2lb12oz, but pick-up like a 2lb10oz and the middle is massive.
Shoes: Nike and Asics from 2011

Have just bought it. Was using a Masuri Ti till this season.

The Albion felt comfortable, fitted snuggly, the grill placement felt better and got a good price for it. Also, since I like to hook and pulln  the albion's design gives a bit more protection in  the area between the back of the head and neck

I will put some pics up tomorrow.

Toe is split in 3 directions so have dowelling to hold it together....slight crack on the edge too :( still goes well tho going into its 3rd season


Does this kind of repair have any impact on performance. I know this is right down at the toe. But with the dowels going into the wood does it deaden the toe end.

Tom did you use a toe guard. How many repairs has it gone through. Are there any other cracks apart from this.

Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on December 27, 2011, 11:03:59 AM
this happened at the start of last season i think and i used it to score another 800 runs last year roughly so i dont think it effects the middle....any bats toe is going to be a spot of less rebound so not that worried.

will get a better pic of the toe when im back in the office tomorrow as you cant really see the uni directional crack in the pic

(http://i1198.photobucket.com/albums/aa447/97notout/DSCN3575.jpg)

The trojan is 2lb. 13.9 35 mm edges
The Sumo Ltd is 3lb. 8.6 with 45 mm edges
The Fatso is 3lb 12. 2 45 mm edges.

Doubt whether I'll use the ltd or fatso and I don't know what the pick up is as I'm still bulking up down the gym. I may just keep em next to the bed in case of burglars. lol

Post by: Joe on December 31, 2011, 07:47:53 AM
They're massive! With the 3lb+ ones, I can't help but think that they could be so much lighter, just some weight reduction at the top and toe. I assume they're all kashmir?

Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: Six Sixes Cricket on December 31, 2011, 11:14:34 AM
Thanks Chaps.

Signature on the left will be my match bat. The other sig will be probably next seasons bat or the year after. The ultra will be for 20/20 or going in and having a smash with. Nike tick bat is a super bat but will have minimal use and will probably be the overcast, maybe wet weather bat.

The blueroom is surplus to requirements at the mo and is up for sale if anyone is interested. Im sure I will be able to pass it on to a team mate as it is a quality bat. Just got the bug of buying bats when there was nothing wrong with it. I expect most of us have a bat or 2 in this position!

Langer, what happend to your Lavers??

Sold them as they were heavier than I wanted and I didn't want to send them back. Should have kept the PB, but oh well.

I was going to ask this... He seems to change kit faster than a supermodel at london fashion week!

Lol, changed bats a little bit this season, probs 4 or 5 times. Would rather do that, opposed to having 4 or 5 bats when I can only use 1. Also, apart from the KD and now the replacement GM, all the rest were bought from overseas which meant I didn't get to his them. I now know I can be pretty fussy, and I will stick to buying bats that I can hold before buying, even if it is a lot more.

How do you rate the H4L softs mate?

I really rate them. The gloves are amazing, so comfortable to wear. The pads are a tad on the heavy side and it's noticeable if you are used to very light pads but you get used to them. The quality of the softs are top notch.

Post by: PedalsMcgrew on January 05, 2012, 10:57:30 PM
After a while it's pretty hard to tell one bat from another! The standout ones are obvious. Scat, M&H, Asad TK, Ihsan, CF etc but the rest are all so good it's nearly impossible to tell them apart. Goes to show every maker is capable of producing an excellent bat, you just have to pick them right in the first place...!

I have been nagging Pete to have a clearout though......if only to make our net sessions a bit simpler!  :D

The Redback has been demoted to net bat, although tbh I rarely use it anymore....should probably sell it really but I'm not sure how good it really is as I never got along with it and wouldn't want someone thinking they'd been ripped off!

Right then Mr Cover_Drive, your challenge: Fit every single piece of your kit into one photo!

If you fail then your forfeit is to catalogue every one of your bats for us in a bat inventory topic with pictures, specifications and a mini review.

Ready.Set.Go.

Edit: Re-read and it sounded a bit rude, if you were able to do the above then that would be great!

I have been advising a few new brands on their launches for this season, and as such I have been given a few new sticks to test for them :-

(http://i44.tinypic.com/2rr2jv4.jpg)
(http://i41.tinypic.com/kw7jp.jpg)

From left to right we have:-

1) Pony Cricket - The Pony Express Blue, 2.9lbs of willow perfection and my chosen stick for this season.
2) Diesel Leisure - The 'Brave', their original factory tester, so little battered, but a great pickup at 2.10 - smells great too!
3) Ping Sports - The 'Ping Perfection Pro Plus' 2.9 with a lovely (No Swearing Please)
4) LeCoq Cricket - The 'Incroyable' model, brand new, G2 in their range. Made by France's leading podshaver Wil L'Eau-King

Sadly, FatBastard did not share my enthusiasm for these!

Post by: kibbs_11 on January 16, 2012, 05:19:37 PM
Not really had a proper go of them yet, but they feel great really soft and fit perfect, pittards leather in the areas which get worn the most.

Which gloves did you have in past and do these feel better than those?
Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: kibbs_11 on January 16, 2012, 05:29:48 PM
I've had the Ihsan Inferno 950 which are a split finger type, and the SS super tests. As i said, I've not really had a real go of the gloves but on feel, I would say they are better than the SS supertest, there was more flexibility in the Ihsan gloves but then again they are split finger type and these are brand new, but i good glove all round I would say.

Completely agree, I'm not keen on the new design. Not used them yet but they're good quality, I reckon they just feel a bit tight but hopefully they'll give a bit.

Thanks Liam, have you got some more details on the masuri?

Interestingly I weighed my slaz helmet when I took the pic and it's around 800 grams, which is about the same as an ayrtek titanium. Now obviously the quality and protection offered by an ayrtek will be better but I was quite surprised at the weight of my slaz. 

Given that you can get 10% off ayrtek steel helmets (or anything else) at the moment on itsjustcricket and romida I was really tempted to get an ayrtek but because I don't play at a great standard and the helmet weight isn't reduced over what I've already got I might not do.

Too much for a proper batsman?

Anyway, this will be trimmed by 3 bats when the offers come flooding in, then I shall buy no-more (promise)

Haven't got a helmet - still undecided as to whether to get one, not sure I'll ever need it.

Post by: Buzz on January 23, 2012, 12:55:48 PM
here is my go - with a few changes from, as you will see, my original posts!

Bats: SAF Genus 100(unless it breaks  ), SAF (Special Buzz Model if it arrives before the start of the season ), Lion Revolution (very special - again, no idea if and when it will arrive - but oooh it will be the real deal - if the marketing literature can be believed...), (Kook Rogue 250 - in case of emergencies - arriving at 18:00 this evening)

Pads: Kook Ice 850s
Gloves: Kook Ice 850s x2
Protection: Hawk thighpad set currently (shock might get replaced)
Box: Shock Dr
Lid: Masuri Ti
Shoes: Nike Span 7's with some help from Brian and Brenda/Asic gel gully 2 (for when I have to bowl- about twice a season these days!)

Bag: Bas large duffle

If the bats arrive I will add some pics at a later date...


Missing from the pics are 2 SAF Bats, one with Dom being mended and one in the post...

and the Stig is my new best friend  :D - he is being unbelieveably tight about his bats though  >:(  >:(  >:(

on a more serious note the pads are quite a bit lighter (and a brilliant deal) but offer the same levels of protection as my old kook ones and the gloves were a bargain, so it was a no brainer, while the Icon was just an ebay gamble

Did you see the Stig's bat Buzz? Everytime I asked what he uses and if he'll bring it along, he looks kind of nervous and suspicious!! Almost as if I would mug him on the way out of the barn if he did bring it!  :(

Pete, I genuinly have never seen it - although i do know he likes bats in th 2.8 to 2.9 region tops. He doesn't like a heavy bat. - which is quite two faced of him as he would happily half inch one of your bats!!

That makes sense!! He took a real shine to the Charlie French and that was 2'9! And the 2'8/9 Screaming Cat was almost gone in his kitbag in a flash! Could you please do your absolute best to persuade the Stig to bring his match bat or his net bat? Do you think he uses a GM for matches and either an SS or SF in the nets, ala Ravi?

I think he is a bit of a bat whore - trying different shapes all the time - which is why he loves the Batoff's. Pretty sure he is very loyal to GM though

Yeah, so this might change.......

At training tonight we didn't a bleep test with pads and gloves on. These pads are too bulky, it's the top hat that's the problem for me. I obviously didn't know thesis when I tried them in the shop as I wasn't running around or wearing my spikes. I should have just got the Kook pads which I lined up next to them.

I'm 6ft 2, my last 3 pairs of pads have been Kookaburra and are on the smaller side of men's. These newberys seem to be on the larger size of men's. They felt fine when stood there in the shop with them on.

Tom, will wearing them in help? It's the top hats that's causing the problems
Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: Sherpa75 on January 24, 2012, 01:21:35 AM
i've got a pair of SPS pads, which i find just fine on my little legs (i'm only 5'8) and i used to find my old kahuna pontings a little on the large side in that the top hat came up a little higher, but i had no real problem with them, guess it's just whether you can get used to them or not Liam as Tom said, they will mould more so the top hat may not seem such an issue later on

Looks lovely, when you get out cheaply rather than throw your helmet in anger/frustration throw in that box (on right side of the pictures) and throw it at Royal Mail address with a address on it  8)

Lovely kit!

Pads look fantastic so do the stickers so does the helmet :D

Seems like SCAT is on its last leg.

I don't know it might sound wired but how come your outer/big thigh guard is dark and inner very light?

outer has been used more id think...i got them off of Mr Hosk to give a try. they are going well as used P1's all last year but not been hit full on with them yet so hard to judge the protection levels etc.

The middle bat is a big un and at 2.12 it ties in well with all the others that are the same weight....SCAT is still my match bat so hoping by using all the others in nets etc it prolongs it life a little longer!!

no mate i had 2 at the time this one and a 2.8 which was too light for me that i moved on.

Scored 4 tonnes alone with the scat last season so its had some use out of it in fairness going into its 3rd season! Would like a copy of it made in all honesty as the handle shape and profile suits me to perfection :)

Ah okay cheers for answering.

Yes last years gloves looked awful, i do prefer these pads to the new ones though ,something a little different.  Reds, i'll probably being playing 2's this year, it's kind of hit and miss as to what you end up playing against, quite a few ex grade levels aussies play in the 1's over here as well as some pretty quick young indian bowlers.  My eyes aren't what they used to be lol, but i still get to play on the home track, and it's a pretty impressive view

yes it's as humid as you like, and it can get scorching hot.  I really haven't worked out worked out how many grounds there are , a lot of clubs share, there's probably only 3 grass tracks the rest are artificial, but there's more clubs than i'd figured.  There's basically four main leagues, consisting between 8 teams in the first division to 14 teams in the 4th division, some clubs like the SCC have more than one team in a league, this club actually runs 7 teams.  then there's a whole host of drinking/social teams like the Misfits that i've played on and off for years.  There's a little bit of playing in KL in malaysia, and some more social 6-a-side tours to places like Manilla and Jakarta.  There's certainly enough cricket going on to keep busy

Great shot there Sherpa, Im Malaysian and spent a few years working in Singapore prior to moving over to Europe. Been to that ground many a time and watched Jayasuria smashing a mental hundred which I think was the world record at that time in the 90s. Small boundaries and extreme humidity had us scrambling for the shade. Great kit collection if I may say so fella.

Post by: Sherpa75 on February 06, 2012, 11:01:49 AM
had to wait a while for this one for Rob to find a suitable cleft to make it in 2.9/2.10 , weighs more like 2.13 now though it's double gripped, toed and faced, but it's an absolute monster, wouldn't worry about the middle being too high, reckon it would fly off the toe it's so chunky

Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: Sherpa75 on February 06, 2012, 12:54:57 PM
actually not a bad lens for travelling, works well in between the 35mm and a 70-300 i have in the bag, it's only f/3.5-5.6 though so really got to wind it out to get any depth of field

Kooks pads need a bit of work just to supple them up so they wrap around the leg better, I have big calf muscles and the straps on the pads are still a bit long so I may just trim them. I don't know what the weight of them is at present. Theres not a lot to them, thereagain thats why we have gloves.  The top half of the pads is attached by three strong  strips of elastic and allow ease of movement.

I suppose the best test will be behind the stumps. We'll see.

Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: Liam-SCCC on February 07, 2012, 02:18:00 PM
Oh yeah, I see the Ti grill now, Tom is going to out pinstripes on my ayrtek.

First played you in 2009 for our seconds, it all go a bit ugly and there was nearly a fight. Then our 10/11 knocked of 30 to win the game.

Last played you in 2010 for the first team when you got promoted. That was also a bit ugly, you shoulder barged me in my follow through! After I removed your 2nd and 3rd batsmen!
Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: Bruce on February 07, 2012, 02:21:40 PM
Rate them very highly, I got them from HQ yesterday, need some wearing in to make them more supple but thats the same with all pads?
The straps are not all that long but I have large calfs and got them round fine.
The straps are very well padded to so wont dig into your legs.
Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: Bruce on February 07, 2012, 02:25:23 PM
Oh I think I remeber that first game now, didn't it rain a bit?
As for shoulder barging, I can only appologise. I can sort of remember it but not vividly.
Athough i think I had 48* that day!
Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: Liam-SCCC on February 07, 2012, 02:40:52 PM

Totally agree with you, my club will only allow us to wear cable knit jumpers, they're expensive, look great, keep you warm and the ladies love them. Quite how anyone could think a white fleece tank top is a step up is beyond me...I doubt the idea came from Britain!  :D

one of the best grounds to play in Singapore. ball comes on nicely to the bat. and the setting is gorgeous.

Yes last years gloves looked awful, i do prefer these pads to the new ones though ,something a little different.  Reds, i'll probably being playing 2's this year, it's kind of hit and miss as to what you end up playing against, quite a few ex grade levels aussies play in the 1's over here as well as some pretty quick young indian bowlers.  My eyes aren't what they used to be lol, but i still get to play on the home track, and it's a pretty impressive view

I like this forward thinking...

Bat(s) - Salix Rogue and hopefully a Warsop Platinum or Puma Iridium 6000 gtr very soon..
Pads - GM 909 d30s
Gloves - GM d30 Limited Edition and Warsop Platinum Pros

Helmet remains Albion Club Mark II with Ayrtek Titanium Grill (recent acquisition) with Aero P2 Protectors aswell as Newbery Duffle Bag to lug it all in.

Still haven't found the perfect wheelie bag....which could be what i keep an eye out for between now and next season...

However,

Bats are updated now to:

Woodstock Curve XL
Salix Rogue
Warsop Platinum Peerless
Newbery Uzi and my most recent acquisition...

Bradbury M500..

Can't wait for nets to start...

Always got to match it up! The Ayrtek doesn't fit in with its green stickers but its good enough to not have to!

Oh and the pads are top notch, just like every other pair of kook pads, bets on the market i reckon!

Was that Talisman always a Perfect Storm?

The bat wasn't actually a Talisman and originally had Storm stickers on, it just came back from repair with Perfect Storm stickers.

Here is my kit, probably the ugliest mix of colours on this board. Oh, I use the Aero pads not because I like them but because I was in a car accident many years ago and have some damage to the legs which normal pads don't cover. I feel like a right idiot in them but it's either wear them or give up cricket, dye my hair white and go play bowls. ;)

Love the grains and outside heartwood on my BAS Blaster.

My Gear:

SS 309 weight unknown - this is my wet weather/net bat very low middle, not a particularly large middle but I know when I find it that's for sure! cost me 20 last season 2nd hand.

H4L 666 Monster 2'12 - I'm sure needs no explaining but goes like a gun!

Newbery GT Players 2'9 (I think) - My Jekyll and Hyde bat. Absolutely love this bat with a passion, huge middle and amazing pick up, unfortunately has had a crack on toe and shoulder on inside edge on its lifetime so i always worry when digging out a yorker.

After having a good net outdoors this afternoon in the sun, I thought I would take a few pics of my 2012 kit whilst getting it out of the boot.
Apologies for the photo quality as I only had my phone to hand:
Bats-
Newbery Grizzly 3lb 2oz - One hell of a special piece of wood
Newbery Zeus 3lb 1oz - Massive oval handle, picks up much lighter than it's deadweight. A Mr Brimble special
AS V3 3lb - New purchase for the season
JS Wright blank, 2lb 14oz - picked from Steve's garage in Stoke last year. Big profile, stickered up with Puma M&H. All bats have anti scuff and 2 x grips
Puma Calibre tricks spikes
Puma Iridium 4000 gloves & Pads
Puma Cobalt 4000 gloves
Puma Iridium 5000 gloves

Just got a albion 98 original yesterday. Very decent. Yeah I would invest in an ayrtek to if I had the tallent! but I'm a tail-ender so I don't see the point. (at the moment!) and yeah I am a sucker for puma kit! especially their softs.

How did you get the Zeus with cadbury stickers?
Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: Johnny on March 18, 2012, 08:44:48 PM
Surely the worst batsmen need the better lids as they're more likely to get sconned?

If you were an awesome batsmen you'd just hook it out the ground instead
Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!

The Zeus was sourced by Mike (Talisman) he knew exactly what I was after and it exceeded my expectations. Cadbury stickers are pretty rare nowadays.

I see your logic but I'f you are a tailender like myself you don't get much oportunity to bat i.e less chance of being hit on the noggin! Hopefully one day I will be able to come in and open and Pull a bouncer out of the ground ;)

Thought it was about time i put my current bats that i currently have before there are any additions. I have placed them from left to right on performance, but to be fair the first 3 are all very good, still not 100% sold on the L&W Reserve maybe it is one of these bats that takes a while to truly be played in.

These won't be everybodys cup of tea but some of the keepers out there might be interested. I've been cleaning up a pair of 1977 Alan Knott 'Test' gloves by Slazenger. Had them re faced by John Copus and as I'm playing vets cricket (supposedly friendly and played in the right spirit of the game) I might give them an outing or two.

Still really supple and so good (well I think so)

I paid 65 for them new in 1977, my first months wages blown in one foul swoop.

EDNA is pure, and shall remain so... I'm not putting SAF on her as she was just homework and something i fell in love with. I made another Gertrude who is up in Derby, but EDNA is jus my experiment and a dead cert for the cup games and t20 this year.

Match bat though is the Hades... as you can see she has already been peppered by our resident south african and his relentless efforts to remove my head!! ha ha... good luck with that!! PULL!!!  8)

Couldn't get used to the SL22s mate didn't feel right on my feet, I really like the adidas shoes I have now though! Very comfy IMO, and I agree with you though they do look superb the SL22s, one of the nicest lookings shoes on the market

H4L is a gun! Absolute gun! The woodstock goes well, so does the Bulldog. Yet to use the scoop, will do soon though :)

Nice nice, I'm contemplating but a pair of SL22, I can't take my eyes off them as they are stunning. For me by far THE best ones in the market

That's good to hear! The Scoop I got is very good indeed, was impressed with it

I had made my mind that I will only be using Screaming Cat as my match bat this year, so I have been quite successful in sticking to it and using it for past few months. Same thing with gloves, have been using Salix for past two months while I change pads every now and then but maroon ones are match pads.

Post by: Cover_Drive on May 12, 2012, 07:49:57 AM
LOL - I have been using SCAT for a while and that is basically my match bat this year.

When its off season I ust random bats, try to use the un-used ones. Some are still brand new like Custom GM Oblivion LE :( It is stonker shame it hasn't been used :(

Those two MBs and UT bats are not mine, they are just in picture.

Langer, gloves were around 24 once but now that count has decreased significantly.

Bat count is more or less still the same.

Title: Re: Your Kit for 2012 Season!!
Post by: Watsontotty on June 07, 2012, 10:02:51 PM
the genesis is the top of the range version however to be honest its not mine although im the only one who uses it and at the minute its my match bat until the Redback is ready and i can then give it back to my team mate but it will be hard to let go as its superb although i wouldnt say at present im using it that well.

The Powerbow test gloves are a dream of a glove and im not sure i will use any other glove until these drop off as im so fussy about pads and gloves and many many ive had i didn't like.

They all live upstairs in a big draw, I usually take about 8 in my kit bag to training. Being a captain of a side for a season or two really does mean I collect a few balls.
@CoverDrive they are very good balls, provided by the league this season. They keep their shine well and swing a lot which is nice. There are better balls in that heap though

The Line-up: Faces!(http://s16.postimage.org/4qcuy8net/DSC_0346.jpg)


From L-R...
Hunts County Rapide (basically same shape as a Mjolnir) 2'11
Mongoose MMi3 Super Premium (apparently previously owned by pro - proper rocket, especially when the wicket or bowlers are slow) 2'9
Laver & Wood Ultra (got a few bruises!) 2'8
Hell4Leather Hattori (my wet weather/lend to team-mates bat!) 2'11
TK Performance Lam (Stickered with M&H Retro stickers - I trimmed this down from 2'12 to 2'10 and shifted the middle up changed the bat completely, super moveable and super solid in the shot) 2'10
M&H Distinction (2010 model, recently acquired and refurbed, looks and feels like new, a great example of the bat, admittedly bought as a colectors piece, though it's certainly not staying clean for long!) 2'10
M&H Distinction (2011 model, aka 'Boris', when my eye in and feeling confident is in this is literally unstoppable). 2'11
M&H Amplus (Own up, I acquired this out of curiosity, and a real clubber of a bat...the middle is huge and long and wide. If the bounce is true and high, this turns every connection into boundary time) 2'13
M&H Master (Pics do the talking ;) ) 2'14
Screaming Cat Series 3 2'10
Screaming Cat Series 1 2.12 (Only used these tentatively in nets - they were purchased with the request that the wood would be here for a long time, not just a good time, and I can't deny that when I received them I was expecting better grainage for my money, though the playing of them is just...and this is no hyperbole...unbelievable. Almost too unbelievable. I know it's the 'norm' to write a gushing review from even just a few shadow shots, though the ball comes off these throughout the face with the sort of rebound that seems to defy physics. To be honest I'm not convinced there's been some special shortcut that they haven't been pressed or something and I expect them to start cracking any time soon. They're just too good! So want to play them for a bit - I just don't believe the sort of performance they were born with can possibly last!


Few more pics...

All packed up, ready to go, leaving 4 poor soldiers behind!...

And finally...Here's my 'modded' Aero Strippers/box combo - Allows the strippers to be worn over shorts or under trousers, and removes the requirement for special 'box' briefs or addons whilst keeping it exactly where it needs to stay!...

Stunning collection. Where do you keep finding these 2010 distinctions?

The Line-up: Faces!([url]http://s16.postimage.org/4qcuy8net/DSC_0346.jpg[/url])


From L-R...
Hunts County Rapide (basically same shape as a Mjolnir) 2'11
Mongoose MMi3 Super Premium (apparently previously owned by pro - proper rocket, especially when the wicket or bowlers are slow) 2'9
Laver & Wood Ultra (got a few bruises!) 2'8
Hell4Leather Hattori (my wet weather/lend to team-mates bat!) 2'11
TK Performance Lam (Stickered with M&H Retro stickers - I trimmed this down from 2'12 to 2'10 and shifted the middle up changed the bat completely, super moveable and super solid in the shot) 2'10
M&H Distinction (2010 model, recently acquired and refurbed, looks and feels like new, a great example of the bat, admittedly bought as a colectors piece, though it's certainly not staying clean for long!) 2'10
M&H Distinction (2011 model, aka 'Boris', when my eye in and feeling confident is in this is literally unstoppable). 2'11
M&H Amplus (Own up, I acquired this out of curiosity, and a real clubber of a bat...the middle is huge and long and wide. If the bounce is true and high, this turns every connection into boundary time) 2'13
M&H Master (Pics do the talking ;) ) 2'14
Screaming Cat Series 3 2'10
Screaming Cat Series 1 2.12 (Only used these tentatively in nets - they were purchased with the request that the wood would be here for a long time, not just a good time, and I can't deny that when I received them I was expecting better grainage for my money, though the playing of them is just...and this is no hyperbole...unbelievable. Almost too unbelievable. I know it's the 'norm' to write a gushing review from even just a few shadow shots, though the ball comes off these throughout the face with the sort of rebound that seems to defy physics. To be honest I'm not convinced there's been some special shortcut that they haven't been pressed or something and I expect them to start cracking any time soon. They're just too good! So want to play them for a bit - I just don't believe the sort of performance they were born with can possibly last!


Few more pics...


The Profiles...

Angled...

All dressed up in sleeping bags!...

In the bag (showing 5 in the custom 'batcave' modifcation that sews in a hard plastic tub (from B&Q) in the bottom of an M&H double decker bag)...(it fits/looks/works a lot better than the pic shows)

Now top half with rest of kit (inc WK and custom aero strippers incorporating box with straps)...
([url]http://s16.postimage.org/j36awk7er/DSC_0361.jpg[/url])


All packed up, ready to go, leaving 4 poor soldiers behind!...
([url]http://s16.postimage.org/j4g8pz98l/DSC_0366.jpg[/url])


And finally...Here's my 'modded' Aero Strippers/box combo - Allows the strippers to be worn over shorts or under trousers, and removes the requirement for special 'box' briefs or addons whilst keeping it exactly where it needs to stay!...

Only thing to be added is a white helmet...


That's an incredible collection, Dan - well done! And I second what you say about the Screaming Cats - having knocked them in for you, I know they are both absolute beauties - unbelievable ping!!

Think I will stick to UK made stuff, I cant believe that a SCAT is so much better than my SAF that it warrents the massive price.... Even 400 for some GM's and others over here is a waist...

Tell me about it, the exact same bat over here costs around $550 but over there it is the equivalent of $320, same bat but a lot more expensive. Another thing that I don't understand is that our economy has been doing so well, yet the prices of cricket gear has not come down, it's bloody ridiculous.

The most expensive bat over here is the GN Legend and that costs $799 - 514. Dunno where you got 1000 from.

I was over there during the last cricket season, and saw a bat in Greg Chapple for $950. It was a GN and did look a nice stick wasn't a Legend though, I remember saying to my mate you have got to be kidding 1k for a bat?

Cheers CD!s...With regards to the 2010 models, I use a Ebay RSS feed matched with deep pockets! I've only ever owned 2, and you know I regretted selling my first one to you as soon as it left with the courier!

And I think the S3 has the lower swell, even in the photo!

Hopefully mine will last till the end of the season.  I'm only playing sundays at the minute anyway, so it should do...

I'll probably need new pads at the end of the season too, as the straps are looking like they're about to go on mine!

I started the season, bright-eyed and bushy tailed with the following:

(http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd117/fake_street_spirit/Bats/DSC_0827.jpg)

Well, the Newbery was sold to someone on here and the Kook (from the Hut sale) went to a good friend who has proceeded to score plenty with it - lovely bat. This paid for a stonking Bombora from ProWannabe, which is unbelievably good.

Here are the results of a slew of called off matches, the stress of arranging teams for these games, a broken finger from fielding too close to a fat lad with a laminate on a cold rainy night in a Cotswold backwater, an enthusiastic & talented Father-in-Law and a bonus burning a hole in my pocket...
(http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd117/fake_street_spirit/Bats/Cricket/DSC_0387.jpg)
Laver & Wood Private Bin (2.9); The FiL Griffin (2.12); Hunts Kounty Kelsall Wet Weather Special (2.8/9); Blueroom Bombora 1+ (haven't weighed it; perfection); Redback Paradox LE (2.10)

Yh the DP is very nice, its actually my mates but after he raved about it he got a few poor scores so gave it to me to use for the season. Ive used it a few times but that Salix there is by far the best bat ive ever had. Its a prototype flat faced bat from Andrew and it goes like an absolute rocket.

Post by: dan_nichols on July 09, 2012, 08:34:57 PM
Junter,

The foam has stuck really well so far and the ball rebounds really well. The foam is actually a little softer than that of the original skyer but i think because of the hard service underneath it gives it good rebound.

Hope this worked. I have only used the M&H (formerly a L&W PB)...safe to say it is the best bat I have ever used. Handle has been replaced once by L&W and still goes great. Weighs 2.7 and is perfect for me as I love to pull and cut. Have not used any of the other bats yet but the Legend feels amazing. Its weight is 2.8.

MG2 Sanga 2.8
GM Apex 2.8
Masterclass 2.8
Bradman 2.9
SS KP 2.8

I will endeavor to post a review of the Legend at some stage.

The slaz needs a bit of work but it is about 16 years old.



Oh how times change, I was cleaning up some of my kit and taking pics of my new shamrock kit today so thought I'd see how its changed from pre-season. I now have this lot:

Still have the redback and bulldog bats but have sold the puma and given the old v12 to my club kit. Pads, gloves and helmet all changed - the matching ayrtek elite pads and gloves are really good and the ayrtek club gloves are good too. New shamrock pads are really light and comfy and the ayrtek titanium lid is great. Also picked up other stuff like a sidearm, GM duffle and various bits.

I'v realised with the exception of my aero box/strippers and the bags I've gone for forum brands - I reckon my next bags will be off here too (maybe a shamrock duffle or ayrtek bag) so come next season I might be completely kitted out off here.

Bats:

Slazenger V200 Ultimate 2lb 8

I got both these bats of our pro last year, they're both great bats however the 2ldb 10 one is slightly too heavy!

Protective:

Slazenger Ultimate Pads (2011)
Slazenger Ultimate Gloves (2011)
Aero P1
Slazenger Helmet

Spikes:
Asics Gel Advance 3
Some old Asics ones

Also Canterbury cricket whites!

Will be getting rid of all the softs and shoes at the end of the year, want to invest in some TLB stuff!

They are lovely, that tan leather makes them looks gorgeous. Glad I got couple before they discontinued it.

I don't think cricketers really "rock" anything mate
