It's that time of year for that statement that always turns out false.

"I have all the kit I need and won't be buying anything"

Don't need pads or gloves.

Have 2 new bats on the way, though hoping to se at least one of those on, if not both.

Might be tempted to get some spikes as the Puma Calibres I had this year were poor.

Might also need a baseball mitt, glove and cleats

I'll let you know once the 2013 season is over!

I'm planning to sell all of my gear after next week end. Literally just hanging onto my Masuri Ti which is only a few weeks old.

Will have a look at all the 2013 gear once its out and see what I like from that. I will be buying a bat, gloves, pads and some spikes which I may get in the sales

Post by: trypewriter on September 06, 2012, 10:43:09 AM
Ha ha, I think my list will obviously look very modest by comparison.  ;)

Bats: Salix Pod Performance 2 lb 7 oz needs to be 'netted in' during the close season.

Pro Grade 2 lb 6 oz currently in use and less than a season old so should be plenty of runs left in it (especially as bugger all have come out of it!).

Pads: Uzi Green Mamba.

Gloves: AS Sniper

Spikes: Surridge

Same old whites


Potential close season purchase - perhaps a helmet at some point.

Title: Re: Your kit for 2013 season
Post by: PedalsMcgrew on September 06, 2012, 11:59:28 AM
It's bound to change by the start of next season but:-

Bats

Chase FLC Custom 2.12
CF Prem Cru 2.10
Helios Midas 2.11
Puma Ballistic 6000 2.8

Pads

Chase R11
Morrant Ultralites (on there way to me now)

Chase R11
Bas
Puma 5000  (I think, got pittards palms?)
Adidas Adipure

Protection

Slazenger Elite helmet
Shamrock Thigh guard set
Carbon Fibre 'look' box

Spikes

Nike Opener's

To buy

Maybe a new helmet, probably a Masuri but might try a GM Purist as they seem like decent value.
P2 Strippers. Never liked them before but have been told the P2's are much less bulky than the P1's so want to give them another go.
GN DynaDrive. It will mean selling off one of my other bats but it's a price worth paying!  :D

Currently in the kit

Bats: RPC, RedInk Un-Scoop, Mongoose Cor3, Saf Hades, Lekka Big hitter, H4L LE (Almost gone)
Gloves: Blenheim (Sausage), SG Maxlite Ultimate
Pads: Puma Pulse 6000
Helmet: Ayrtek
Thigh: GN
Bag: Newbery Tour

For 2013:
Would like to add a
Screaming Cat or L&W or a H4L Hattori or Tempo (depending on what profile looks like) if possible.
Another set of Gloves (Salix or blenheim)
Would like to get my hands on Ayrtek Raw Blue with black TI grill
..just depends on what I want more Raw or Scat..

Would most likely get rid of the Lekka TPX (big hitter) as it has only been used in one game..

Bats

Redback Paradox Premium 3lb
Bulldog Basher 3lb

Softs

Shamrock moulded pads
Ayrtek elite pads
Ayrtek elite gloves
Ayrtek club gloves


Ayrtek premier lid with titanium grille
Aero P2 strippers, aero shorts, aero box
Shamrock outer & inner thigh pads
Asics strike rate spikes
GM original LE easy load bag
GM duffle


I can't see myself buying any more bats this winter unless there is a cracking deal on a T20 bat somewhere. Don't really need any new softs either but I reckon I'll be tempted by another pair of gloves (maybe kook r900). Other than that if there are any good deals on the GN pro performance duffles I might get one for midweek cricket as the GM duffle is big enough but annoys me with the lack of pockets (as does the GM wheelie). Will also definitely get another pair of spikes, probably asics but quite like the look of adidas so will see whats in the sales.

Bats. A Grade 1 bat to be made to the exact shape of my old favourite.
Gloves. Puma, will wait for the 2013 ones. 
Pads. Kook R900 (2012) if I can find some cheap.
Helmet. Masuri Titanium
Shoes. To buy, probably Asics!

So I've laid that down as a marker, only got the helmet so far!

This is the cleft I have earmarked for my bat. The top one

They are slaz, got them from sports direct online for £1 each on clearance. They are octopus with a slight difference as the size of the circles get smaller the higher up the grip you go.

I'm a bit obsessed with shopping for gloves too, though I've actually only got 2 pairs at the moment (ayrtek elite and club). I've my eye on the new blank bats ones with the coloured palm, 2011 puma calibre 5000 that seem to be going for about £23 on ebay, newbery sps1 (£35 from lorimers on ebay), redback modern and the kook r950. I'm sure I'll end up buying at least 1 more pair before next year but I'm waiting for the best deals as last year I bought kit early post season and missed out on better deals later on.

After selling/giving to friends/retiring a lot of my stuff, I've got the following leftover from 2012:

Powerbow Strauss LE bat
Bellingham & Smith Supreme bat
Vitas Cricket Lion Roar bat
Legend batting pads
Powerbow players batting gloves
Quantum elite batting gloves
Strippers p2
Gray Nicolls pro performance duffle bag
Asics Gel Advance 4 spikes

For 2013 I have got or will be getting:

Laver & Wood Reserve Bat
Dynadrive bat
Legend batting gloves
Legend keeping gloves & pads
Geoff Wymer custom fitted keeping gloves
Vitas Cricket batting pads & gloves
Gray Nicolls players bag
Slazenger pro tour leather holdall, the little one
Asics 200 not out spikes
Ayrtek blue tinted RAW helmet
Toying with a Masuri keepers lid as I feel like I'll want something minimalist to keep in, but I'm sure I'll love my ayrtek.

On my wish list I still really want (but considering my existing gear, could never justify needing) the following:

Slazenger V12 or V6 bat, plus pro tour batting pads & gloves.
GM Epic Graeme Smith Player Edition bat.
I used to have all the top softs from M & H in the tan leather, inc the keeping gear. Seeing it in this creamy white leather for 2013 makes me want it again, drooool.

Was bloody hard work narrowing all my choices down to my current list! You should have seen my list 3 months ago!

They are made from top end willow, doubtful its true players willow even with a silly rrp like they have, but they are light for their size. The major difference is that I was told that they are made to strauss's spec, they certainly aren't shaped like the 'normal' powerbows we have in the shop.

It's a lovely stick, ball flies off it, so forgiving!

Will give you some snaps of what I have now tomorrow, much of the newer stuff is yet to arrive.

When I get to that stage I think the men in white coats will arrive to take me away, I wouldn't even know what to do with all that wood, most I've ever owned is 9 bats at any one time.

Haha it is a massive amount of kit, and it's not like its low end.

Powerbow Strauss was my Saturday bat
B & S was my Sunday bat
Lion Roar was my midweek/wet weather/friendly pie bowler bunting bat

Only had one set of soft gear to contend with though.

This year I'm gonna have to jiggle things around a bit. Will probably use my Vitas Cricket bat, pads and gloves in the midweek league and any Sunday/midweek friendlies, should probably start to get the brand out there really.

If there's no cricket match to be played, consequently there's no beer to be drank afterward. And without that, it's very unlikely that the 'delights' of Peterboroughs nightlife wil entice me....

Plus, convinced myself about 2 hours ago to power through til the test match starts.

So far I've got a Salix Falx performance (thanks PDC), newbery sps2 gloves (thanks rematch) and a pair of adidas sl22 blue (thanks MandM). Will get some pads, either newbery or salix to replace my morrant unlimited's, want something quite minimalist. Will also look at some thigh pads to replace my grays players (way too bulky). All that and I'm a bowler who bats 11!

I'd call it discount more than sponsorship tbh, but yeah. It's the only way I'd fork out that sort of cash for kit. I want decent kit and will pay but sod paying full price, it's not worth it really. Still, hopefully I can find some deals at BlueRoom and then find some brand for the rest of it.

Bat;
Newberry UZI which was surplus from their 'test' stock. 2lb 9. Slightly losing it's edge so a new #1 bat is on the cards. Not sure which way I'm going to fall yet.

Shoes;
Asics. The running shoe type with small spikes. Super comfy.

Gloves;
Newberry UZI

Pads;
Warsop stebbing. A set with close fielding pads as inserts. They don't make them anymore and I've never seen anything like them. They are so comfy.

Title: Re: Your kit for 2013 season
Post by: Liam-SCCC on December 13, 2012, 09:03:26 PM
So

Bats: Red Ink Custom, Kook Recoil 700
Gloves: Kook R900, Ayrtek LE
Pads: Kook R900
Spikes: Asics Strike Rates
Helmet: Masuri Ti *Need to buy one of the new shape grills
Bag: Salix Pod Pro

Might as well give that Kookaburra a go, give this flat face a fair chance. I did average 32 with it in 2 innings last year.

I got this D&P bat from the guys in Cape Town and Kevin, their bat maker, sorted me with a beauty. This is not the top of the range version, as used by Vernon Philander, but is still excellent.

I don't understand why the guys who are the forum sponsors here, the UK distributors, aren't more active, because the guys in Cape Town are really putting out great gear.

(http://i1198.photobucket.com/albums/aa447/97notout/DSCN3770.jpg)
Bulldog Basher and softs (superb) a couple of ninjas, Ayrtek, Asic gel 4s (last years)
Keeping kit, Kooks pads, Wymer customs, Alan Knott 'Test' and if I've got the bottle Bob Taylors 'unwebbed'

The planks are a nice old Hohner 'The Jack Bass' circa 1982 and on the left an old Epiphone Thunderbird. :)

Post by: trypewriter on December 19, 2012, 12:32:09 PM
Ha ha, I think my list will obviously look very modest by comparison.  ;)

Bats: Salix Pod Performance 2 lb 7 oz needs to be 'netted in' during the close season.

Pro Grade 2 lb 6 oz currently in use and less than a season old so should be plenty of runs left in it (especially as bugger all have come out of it!).

Pads: Uzi Green Mamba.

Gloves: AS Sniper

Spikes: Surridge

Same old whites


Potential close season purchase - perhaps a helmet at some point.

Hm, good job it wasn't a new year resolution. I did indeed bag a helmet, but somewhat inevitably also added another bat...

if you have uploaded them to photobucket its easy. Go onto your photobucket album, click on the pic you want to post. Then on the right hand side there is a box with 4 links in it. Copy and paste the bottom one (IMG code) into your post on here and it will display it

Post by: RPC/Blueroom Cricket - Adie on December 20, 2012, 07:57:07 PM
What BlueRoom stuff would you like to see? I'm going to help Mr Pack out down here in the South West but I'm happy to help you guys out too (although I know Liam normally sorts this forum out).

Well the Kookaburra kit is/was my 2012 gear. I'm looking to move to BlueRoom for 2013 as having played against Rob and heard nothing but praise it feels only right to use his kit!

Went up their today to the Pack cave and couldn't believe my eyes. It was the BEST cricket shop I've ever been in and to actually pick out which bat I wanted then get the stickers and grip of choice put one was really good. I'll let you know how they play tomorrow as I've got my own machine, auto feeder and a 2 hour lane booked!!

YOu noticed Johnny.. well done.. Top marks! The gloves will actually be going to a mate who needs some new gloves (He's a good lad but not got a good job so always had hand me downs. Thought he deserved some new stuff for once). Plus, Pack man didn't have any right handed gloves in stock so I've just gone for the pads and bats for nwo but the gloves will be coming!

@Alvaro - Hopefully mate. The bat I picked out looks and feels awesome so hopefully it'll be on par or better than the Kookaburra Kahuna 1000.


@Toenails - Yeah mate, the kit is really good and lovely to use and wear. The bat goes really really well! It's a bit silly really to only use stuff for a year but cricket is the only sport I play now, so I pump all my energy, time and effort into it. Kit included :)

Maybe we should get more Rob Pack BlueRoom stuff on the forums..... If there is appetite for it?

Post by: RPC/Blueroom Cricket - Adie on December 20, 2012, 08:46:11 PM
I could be tempted to selling one yes mate.

Well as Rob doesn't have any RH gloves currently it's probably pointless putting the softs up until Jan when the new stock is in. I'll ensure it has a forum with pictures as soon as it's all in though. If anyone does want anything though just send me a message. I'll happily offer any assistance I can.

Bats: Laver SR, Laver PB, Helios Atlas (Main match bat), Talisman Storm (Mjolnir/Reflex profile), Red Ink middling bat (2lb 11.5oz ish), Talisman Perfect Storm (Unsure of profile, but apparently based on the GT), Bulldog Pedigree Plus ST (Skiddy match bat), Bulldog Pedigree Plus Amplus (1 inch lower middle, bouncy match bat) and a Vantage LE SCat Series 3 (Needs to go on a diet) 

Lid: Ayrtek RAW

Softs: Vulcan Zeus Pads and Gloves and a pair of Bulldog Spirit gloves

Other protection: Aero P2 Strippers and Aero P1 Armguard

Bat: Kookaburra Ricochet 250 (An absolute beauty from Asad. Was tempted to use it myself, but bought with the intention for it to be an incentive for the brother to play more cricket. :))

Lid: GM Purist Ti (This lid has been handed down from me, to the middle brother and now to the youngest one. Ti lid was bought from the Romida sale. 8))

Softs: Bulldog Spirit Pads and Gloves and a pair of old Youth Puma Evolution 3000 gloves


Oh, the extra grips on two of the Lavers is just something I do during the knocking in process to reduce vibration. 8) I normally have 2 or 3 grips on top of the original one!

That does look good for a performance grade.  I think the butterfly stain is the only reason Andrew would give it that grade, but despite that, it still looks grade 1 (at least) to me!

Illegal in all forms I believe, but you can use the bat to the end of its natural life. Same with carbon handles if I'm correct

The guys i bought it from said you can use it at school  and club but not 1st class .

"In 2006, a company introduced cricket bats with a thin carbon-fiber layer on the back which were used in competitive matches by high-profile players (e.g. Ricky Ponting and Michael Hussey). The carbon fiber was claimed to increase the durability of the bats, however they were banned from all first-class matches by the ICC in 2007"

The carbon fibre backed bats can be used until the die outside of FC cricket. Whilst they're illegal to make now, as they weren't when first introduced they can be used still.

GN Aus and GN UK are kept as two separate markets, not entirely sure why, but It's a case of grass is always greener on the other side. We've sent a number of UK Grays bats over to Australia recently.

I also recently knocked in an Australian Legend that a regular customer of mine bought and had shipped over.

You are right. I spent a season in England as an overseas player in 2004 and was amazed at the choice of gear you guys had, particularly with all the smaller, boutique brands. Even just local to where I was up in West Yorkshire, there was a guy down the road who made bats, Barronette I think they were called, and they were sublime. Over here it's very much the big brands, plus a couple of local ones and that's about it.

However, it looks as if Kookaburra have given us a shipment of their 2013 UK range early, one guy at the club has the Kooka Menace, which aside from the decals is a lovely bit of willow. Maybe there will be more UK/AUS cross-sell in the future...

I'm currently after an Aus Legend at the moment, and can't understand why they don't sell both ranges in both Australia and UK. Surely more variety = more sales. And on that note are any UK retailers able to source an Aus GN Legend?

In England I played for Cullingworth CC, Craven and District League. Would love to go back now, had a fairly mediocre season there (500-odd runs at about 25) but I was only 21 at the time. Now I'd fancy myself doing a fair bit better if I got a 2nd chance, but don't think that will ever happen again due to work..,  :(

It's to protect retailers more than anything I think. Too many bats dilutes the range. if their range had about 12 different types it would mean I could afford to only stock say 1 of each type of bat in an LE, giving very little choice to customers who want to pick things up and feel them.

It also protects retailers from people who want the latest gear ASAP. Due to the English and Australian seasons launching at different times.

At least by having separate ranges in separate territories, it discourages the early buying.

And no, other than buying from an Australian retailer, there's no way I could get hold of an Aus Legend.

No worries!! I basically went for the XXX gloves over the new Legend gloves as they were a good $30 cheaper and I didn't see any difference in quality. Good quality sheepskin palms, they have the one piece sausage fingers for the bottom two fingers for greater protection and 'shark tooth' split-fingered design on the ring and little fingers. For me I found I needed a few net sessions just to break them in slightly, but now they are easily the #1 gloves in my kit. I'm really into the all-white styling, which is also the same for the XXX pads I recently bought.

Here are some more photos for a closer look!

It was a great season. Our league form was patchy but we won the Keighley Cup, which is open to all clubs in the Keighley area from any competition. We beat an Airdale and Wharfdale side in the semi-finals (a bit like a Championship side knocking out a Premier League club in the FA Cup) called Harden, who are about a half mile away from Cull but are considered the toffee-end of town whereas we were the scrubbers, created a great atmosphere for that game. We rolled them for about 80 on a terrible track and were 4/10 in response, then #6 and I batted until the end, I got 32* which is one of my best knocks given their quality and the state of the pitch. Then we smashed Oakworth in the final, played at a Bradford league ground, best ground I've ever played on. Great times!!

Some terrible grounds to be honest
Have to say where I live and started playing, Crossflatts is probably the best ground in the league

Post by: Dreammist on January 18, 2013, 11:03:20 PM
The Vapen is a really interesting bat.

Despite its profile, you can virtually hit it anywhere and the ball flies - it has great ping. Edge, lower, middle, upper (obviously not too high on the splice) it doesn't matter.

Unlike the GM and Kooka where you can tell exactly where the ball has hit, there is very little feedback with the Vapen, it is really hard to describe. The RNS is similar.

It is a great bat if you need to score quickly as it feels like a ball masher in the hand.

Unfortunately you do need some discipline so you don't try and bash every ball, hit a rash shot and get out.

The bowlers in the team hate it at net practice  :)

Title: Re: Your kit for 2013 season
Post by: Dreammist on January 19, 2013, 09:09:23 AM
The Kooka is a fantastic bat. It has a low middle and so much power for driving. If you are on a pitch that keeps low and plays unpredictably it is the bat to have as you get great value for your straight shots. It has fantastic balance and picks up lighter than its 2.9. I really love the feel of the ball off the bat as well. You can tell exactly where you hit it on the bat. I can not praise the Kooka enough - it is truly a special bat (and my number two next to the GM which I adore - but I think if I used to Kooka more, I'd love it more!

The RNS is also a great Indian bat - but similar to the Vapen - it is a bat which makes you want to go out and smash the ball, and you can virtually hit the ball anywhere on the bat and you will get value for your shot. The bat gives very little feedback as to where the ball hits though. It is a bit heavy for me, although it does pick up quite light for its weight (2.14) - it is solid all the way through the bat, top to bottom. You often surprise yourself with how quick the ball comes off the bat. I have to say - out of the four bats, the RNS is probably number four on the list. I may get some weight knocked off it and see how it goes.

Fair enough, i expect its cost effective to make some balls for the Australian market in Australia itself.

I've never seen an Aussie made ball in the UK. Kook balls for the UK market are made in India or Corby as far as i know.

Kookaburra Cricket Equipment
The Kookaburra name is synonymous with sport. Not only is Kookaburra Sport the largest producer of cricket balls in the world, our cricket bats and ultralight protective equipment is used by the worlds elite batsmen.

Kookaburra Sport was established in 1890. We have world acclaimed cricket bats with the Kookaburra logo chosen to be used by some of the worlds best. The Kookaburra Turf cricket balls are used exclusively in Test cricket in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe with Pakistan being another renowned Kookaburra stronghold.

For the first 100 years of our existence, Kookaburra Sport traded as A G Thompson Pty Ltd and many members of the Thompson family are still involved in the day to day running of the company, looking to extend its award winning record as the worlds best known manufacturer of cricket balls.

Founded in 1890 by Englishman, Alfred Grace Thompson, a saddle and harness maker, with a love for sport, A G Thompson Pty Ltd. began business in Bay Street Brighton Victoria and by WW1 was already entrenched as one of the leading Australian hand-made cricket ball manufacturers.

In 1945 the then Australian Cricket Board of Control wrote to all the Australian cricket ball manufacturers requesting that they send samples of their products for possible use in the first post war Test Series, involving Don Bradmans Australians and the visiting English team. The A G Thompson Kookaburra Turf ball, a hand sewn, five layered quilt cricket ball was chosen, beginning an unbroken 62 years association with the International game which since the late 1970s has also included the use of a white leather ball used for limited over cricket in Australia.

Kookaburra now exports world wide to all cricket playing nations.

Since 2002, it has seen a very active time in the companys history with the completion of the new manufacturing complex at nearby Moorabbin housing over 70 employees and the UK acquisition of the 200 year old cricket ball manufacturer, Alfred Reader & Co Ltd, also with 60 plus employees, confirming that Kookaburra Sport is the largest cricket ball manufacturer in the world.

Kookaburra continues to strive for excellence to be the best equipment for cricket both locally and world wide.

The Kooka Regulation four piece also begs to differ....  :)


I imagine the fc/test level balls are made in Aus. More expensive ball = higher margins and cost = aussie or uk made. I suspect 70-80% of the kooks balls, ie. the cheap Sports Direct stuff, is made in India.

Pretty certain SG make all the bats, the T20 bat has the exact edge profile of the SG version.

The ball making machine in Corby UK begs to differ...
Is the machine in Corby for Readers balls?

Is the machine in Corby for Readers balls?
Since 2002, it has seen a very active time in the companys history with the completion of the new manufacturing complex at nearby Moorabbin housing over 70 employees and the UK acquisition of the 200 year old cricket ball manufacturer, Alfred Reader & Co Ltd, also with 60 plus employees, confirming that Kookaburra Sport is the largest cricket ball manufacturer in the world.

I has moved up to Corby with the rest of Readers operation, but i believe it will now be used (if it wasnt being already) for Kook balls too.

First ever post, so thought it may be a good idea to put up the kit I have!

Bats
Adidas Sachin Tendulker Master Blaster Elite
Gray Nicolls Powerbow Players
Kookaburra Recoil Mayhem

Gloves
GM 909 D30 x2

Pads
GM 909 D30

Boots
Nike Air Zoom Pace 2
Nike Air Zoom Century 2

Accessories
Aero P1 Strippers *
Aero Tour Bag

* - to be purchased

Unfortunately, I bought the Adidas because it was cheap! Has a nice grain and 'ping' off the mallet but not my cuppa. I prefer the GN, and don't really like that either - seem to have a habit of buying something because it's cheaper than it should be... or not!

Anyone know of any good bats with a low middle? I keep checking the ebay bargains section but then think I'll end up getting into the same position of finding something good and cheap, but that I'm not really happy with! Cost isn't a barrier (within reason - if it's £300 and lasts a couple of seasons then that's ok)!  :D

And I don't live to far from Kippax - always intended on getting one but something else catches my eye before I get the chance! Know people with them who think they're very good! If I can get rid of the Adidas and GN then it may be worth speaking to Chris about getting a couple!

Ricochet (2lb 7oz) arrived which will likely be my match bat for the season.  Have a 2lb 7oz Laver Reserve being made up as of now to replace the one shown which came in too heavy (so is currently being sold unfortunately ), but hopefully will look/play very similar to the current one, hopefully with the strip of heartwood too! 

Keep my old school Kookaburra Kahuna Ponting pads coming up for their 5th year and I'll get a couple new pairs of gloves for the season.  Still using Recoil 900s from last year currently.  Masuri Titanium helmet.  A personal preference, although I know this is a very pro-Ayrtek forum (love the way they look but Masuri fits my odd head better!)

Approximate weight...

Woodstock - 2'10
Dynadrive -2'10.5
KG - 2'11
Kooka - 2'11
Puma - 2'11.5
Protos - no idea but my guess is 2'9
Red Ink - 2'11
Screaming Cat - 2'10
H4L - 3lb
RPC (both) - 2'11 although the newer one has a slightly better pick up..

CD's
B3 - 2'9
BB - I am going to guess 2.11 but closer to 2'12

Dynadrive is BIG and I like the profile. I have never seen such a BIG bat like your H4L. I think even Gayle will get scared looking at that. Also B3 for 2'9 is huge. you have a great selection. which one is your match bat?

Thanks Rajesh, B3 belongs to Cover_drive (he sent it over for me to try) and it is big for its weight. My match bat is RPC and yes that H4L is very big and picks up very well for a 3lb bat...

Seems quite a few people are fans of Woodstock on here, they must perform well??

Shame the day I meet him at ,the expo he came across like an ass and really put me off him and his company. Good looking stick mate hope it goes well for you.

Reports from everyone i spoke to at the expo were negative about him. Seemed particularly unwilling to even acknowledge the existence of anyone who wanted to talk about batmaking or the provenance of his bats.

The gear is nice, but of course its going to be, anyone swapping a newbery logo with a woodstock one will be selling good bats and softs.

Post by: SOULMAN1012 on February 03, 2013, 11:55:42 PM
Wasn't just me I'm afraid but it may just be he isn't a people person and being surrounded by bat badgers all day at the expo event maybe just wasn't his cup of tea. Most put me right off him and his company to the point thati would there use a SD bat that give him my money.

Anyway good looking bat bud.

I'll bear that in mind when I next buy a bat then, I can understand your point of view and now I'm aware of it I'll definitely think twice before repeating any business.

And thank you SOULMAN1012, best of luck for the new season mate  :)

do you really care what somebody is like as long as the kit is good....

I must admit i do...

Honestly I'll say yes. If someone provides decent kit but poor service then I'm willing to make a slight compromise in quality to get a better service.

I doubt that you would need to compromise on quality for better service! So many top bat makes out there that there is no need. 8)

I went down to John's Woodstock workshop last year - he couldn't have been nicer; spent a couple of hours there, he was engaging, really keen to ensure I picked the right bat for me, which I did (at the time!) 

The bat was great as well - I just couldn't get on with the shape (extremely concaved) out in the middle - got me some runs but I never felt 'at one' with it, though that's no reflection on the quality of the bat - all of the Woodstock gear is top quality, well finished and extremely good value...

Gear for this season;

B3 bespoke (on order) - traditional shape with a twist  ;) 2.8
Kook Ice net bat

Kook R900 pads

Kook Ice gloves x 2

Albion helmet

Not the most wide-ranging, I'll admit, but it does the job for me (and fits in one bag!)

That Navarone is beautiful Wayward Hayward lovely gear mate.

Its a brilliant bat with a great middle but due to the high middle, the toe is very thin. This Navarone has a nasty crack through the toe and the previous one before died a similar way :( I was lucky as Newbery sent me a brand new one free of charge as they deemed it their fault.

I found that this season there were a lot of real bargains over the winter due to the poor weather we had last year, this meant that for a bat lover like myself my money went a bit further. As all cricket kit will last indefinitely if looked after and stored well i thought it was a good investment.  Plus variety is the spice of life i am told

Yea for a 5 star it has 11 straight grains, it has a few little butterfly stains on the blade but these have no impact on the performance, i am quite picky about my bats and i normally spend an age picking them from all the available willow. This one also pings very well and picks up well for a 2.11 bat. I normally use 2.9 and this feels very light for the weight

If anything butterfly stains are supposed improve performance as they are stiffer and transfers energy onto the ball. I am mulling over buying one .

i have been looking for the pads and gloves since getting the bat and bag but they seem to be as rare as rocking horse poo. i may ask on the wanted section but i doubt i would get any replies, i even asked newbery and the bloke just laughed :(

I'll have 1 bat, 1 helmet, 1 pair of pads and 1 pair of gloves all at least 1 season old. Mind you the bat could be classed by some as having the middle lightly used. I do get the odd urge to buy another bat but I'm currently resisting that!

All fairly self explainatory except the L&W stickered bat which is a blank bat from Asad at Uzi Sports.
Also not decided on gloves for the season yet but will probably make a decision at winter nets.

Some school that one of our first teamers works at.  Not sure where in Leatherhead though.  Considering the club is based in Cheam, with most of the members living around Sutton, Cheam and Wimbledon, Leatherhead is a bit of a trek!

Finally got time to take pics of the kit.

This is my kit for 2013.

The Legend softs are amazing. Better than last year.

The AJK limited edition bat is phenomenal (guess that explains whyI have only 1 bat in my kit)

Yes, that is the AJK LE which has made all my previously owned bats redundant.

The bat has set into my hands perfectly since the first net.

The power it packs is immense considering I have not knocked the bat in - only worked on the edges a bit.

Andrew mentioned these briefly when he rang us to discuss the possibility of us stocking salix in the future.

AJK range is exclusive to barringtons as a 'reward' for barringtons being Salix's best customer, which I think is a really good gesture.

Bat looks a corker mate. Really looking forward to the possibility of salix on my shelves in 2014

So you went for the AJK in the end then mate, mine is by far the best bat I have owned. The power these things pack is just unreal, only used it in a few net sessions against the slower bowlers but it is a gun.

Weight is 2lb9oz with GM control grip and hammer edge.

Middle is mid-low, more mid. Been effortless to find the middle - very happy and high satisfied net sessions so far.

I agree. Andrew is a top guy.

Barringtons buy loads from Salix (still have a quite a few left from last year)

Couldn't resist. But go a amazing price from Barringtons as I am one of their big spend customer.

But feel its money well spent.

First time in years, I have felt satisfied with just one bat in my kit.

Also, the Legend pads and gloves are top class. I have always been a Salix & Puma softs, but both were late this year with their soft goods so went for the Legends.

Took some snaps of all my kit now rather than just the new stuff.

This is just what will be used, I've got a room full of kit that probably won't come out this season.

(http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb450/CPye061194/BB6431F9-634F-4F26-89FD-BE9F8803F76B-2451-000001C0D28FD152_zps8788dd58.jpg)
Woodstock Tour De Force Gold, Chase 175 Beluga, Woodstock Gold Gloves and Pads, Chase R11 Gloves, Masuri club (I put a Titanium Grille on there), Aero P2 Strippers, Chase thigh pad and a pair of Oakley Radars

(http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb450/CPye061194/103B7755-C3D3-409B-A3EE-26026EB24AB1-2451-000001C1899E784F_zps139fcf53.jpg)
Couple of pairs of shoes, both Asics, the newer ones are Gel 335 (I think) and I honestly cannot remember what model the older ones are

(http://i1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb450/CPye061194/A5DB2D0C-3ED7-4161-94A7-A250ABB1D6FF-2451-000001C23F373AF9_zps5f4e45a2.jpg)
And finally my keeping gear, Newbery pads that go under your whites, Newbery innerspring and a pair of Woodworm Performance gloves (that will be replaced if I keep more regularly

I see your point and i did have the matching gloves but the Newbery SPS 1 gloves are my favourites so why use anything else. There very plain aswell so its not as if the kit doesnt go well together.

Plus i was looking forward to seeing the new 2013 H4L softs and may just get a pair of the gloves if they look good.

Lovely looking kit, the soft pockets make it look that little bit smarter! 8) Is that a sponge you have underneath the grip on your Shark?  ???

It's half a folded grip to help with my over reliance on my bottom hand.  I experimented with it last season and found it helped more when I had it in there.  Althoughn I'm going to send it off to Ryan to have an oval handle put in before the start of the season.

Yeah I think so to. I'm glad it seems to be the norm now, especially for some of the "smaller" brands to do plain white gloves, much prefer it to the overuse of fluorescent colours like on some

Wife is out with friends so it allowed me the oppertunity to open my kit bag and take some snaps :)...RPC's are with Cover_Drive so when they come back and I able to get to fedex office to pick up another bat that is waiting there this should be complete.

I am a bowler (not a very good one) if anyone is wondering ;)

:) considering that the torque is supposed to have mid-high middle i might have to go for custom option and get a mid-low middle Yash :)...don't mind spending money on quality though and having seen what Salix offer there's no doubting their work is worth the money.

Title: Re: Your kit for 2013 season
Post by: farnham_quins_2 on March 17, 2013, 02:50:06 PM
Having made a trip to IJC yesterday I now have my kit sorted for the season. Picked up a helmet and some Salix bat wax so now I'm good to go.

First up, bats! Currently have 6 bats which I feel may be 1/2 too many but we'll see what happens - at least I have options eh?
Specs (from L to R in first pic) :
GM flare Original, 2lb 11oz.
BB Distinction Profile, 2lb 11.8oz.
Black Cat Jester, 2lb 12.3oz.
MSR Net Bat, 2lb 14.5oz.
SS Matrix, 2lb 11.8oz.
CA with Vantage Custom stickers, 2lb 12.5oz.

The BB will be my match bat for Saturdays, with the Jester used for Sundays/T20s.
I'm not sure about the Flare yet as I haven't netted with it yet, but it does tap up very nicely so may get a look in for Saturdays. The MSR is for nets hence why it's heavier than the rest, try and get used to playing with a heavier bat to improve swing speed. CA is another wet weather/net bat as it's a pretty decent bat.
The SS is decent, taps up really nicely. Seems a lot softer than the other bats when bouncing a ball on it, but my Dad's pretty keen on it so will probably give it to him when the season starts.
Out of all of them I'd say the Jester taps up the best, but this is probably because it's had a few nets and half a season's worth of use. The BB and Flare have had barely any/no use yet. The BB is just a fantastic profile though, and picks up like a dream. It's interesting hearing the different sound off each bat though, there is quite a range!

Bag is next, Salix Pod Pack from 2012. Picked it up at the end of last season for £30ish, and it does the job. Looks quality, and has room for all match day essentials. Just had a sort out, and realised there are a couple of mesh pockets inside too, as well as the 2 pockets either end. Fits pads, gloves, shoes, thigh pads, helmet, small towel, bat wax, inners, box, spikes in the main compartment. Bat in the bat compartment, spare grips, hat, sunnies, other miscellaneous gear in the bat pocket. Balls, drink etc in the 2 end pockets. Has wheels too so is less hassle than other bags I've had.

With all kit inside:

Empty:

Gloves, probably my favourite piece of kit (other than bats). SAF, really comfy and flexible, decent amount of protection plus the sweat band top hand thumb; genius!

(http://i1311.photobucket.com/albums/s673/Jmulley/DSCN2222_zpse363199a.jpg)

Pads, not actually match pads (those are Vantage Volts and are currently in my boot), these are BAS which will be used for nets. Fairly comfortable and provide good protection but hoped they would be a bit ligher.

Helmet, GM, bought yesterday. My head was slightly too small for large Masuri/
Albion but too big for small. The GM was perfect fit, lets you adjust the size at the back.

Shamrock thigh pads, fit well and provide protection.
(http://i1311.photobucket.com/albums/s673/Jmulley/DSCN2232_zps45678096.jpg)

Shoes, GM Original Pros, nothing special, had them for a couple of seasons and fit really nicely.
(http://i1311.photobucket.com/albums/s673/Jmulley/DSCN2239_zps3e344695.jpg)

Shame my camera skills don't do justice for most of the kit, but i'm pretty happy with this for this season and probably a couple of seasons after that too.

Wife is out with friends so it allowed me the oppertunity to open my kit bag and take some snaps :)...RPC's are with Cover_Drive so when they come back and I able to get to fedex office to pick up another bat that is waiting there this should be complete.

I am a bowler (not a very good one) if anyone is wondering ;)

It came in the packaging so i just stuck it on the bat, fancied the idea of trying fibre glass scuff sheet so stuck it on the Hammer...so far no complaints don't notice that much difference to be honest compared to other scuff sheets :)

I've got the gel speed menace bought 2 years ago - not that I'm particularly quick but I bowl a lot of Overs and they are really comfy especially with some special orthopaedic insoles I have due to injury so I'm trying to stretch out a 3rd season (normally 2 seasons of Saturday and Sunday and my boots drop to bits!).

Nice bat collection - I have a legend bought when they first came out and it's a beast of a bat!

As for the hammer - definetly ditch the security sticker and that face!

Thanks for the compliments - i had a pair of nike bowling boots last year and i absolutely hated them they were so big and heavy but gave great ankle support something which i was lacking previously. Tried to buy some 2012 SM's but they had all gone out of my size.

I've got the legend in a 2.9 but it just feels a tad too light for me especially near the toe area feels like its going to snap even though the bats been fully knocked in :S I will most likely send it in to GN and get them to give it the once over

Lol ok comment noted on the Hammer-will have to do something about that sticker!!

Just a quick question.
I see most of you guys have 2 sets of batting pads, and sometimes 2 helmets. Is this because you have games Saturday and Sunday so you need fresh pads? Or do you just spend a ridiculous amount of time in the middle so you need to change them a lot?
I don't know anyone in NZ who has two sets of pads.
And yes I do know everyone who plays cricket in NZ ;)

Option 4: People on here just like kit and rather than choose between bat x or bat y.. Have both :) (same with gloves, pads, helmets etc).

I only swap gloves during the game when batting as they get sweaty but then pretty much everyone does that I would have thought.

I have a pair of pads I net in and play in as I don't want my rare Newbery's to get marked up.

What a posey twit I know...I'm sure I'm not alone though.

I've not done it before but I've gone for a pair of net/T20 pads this year. Just to keep my other pair nice for sat/sun cricke (ie proper cricket). Always have net and game gloves though as my net gloves get properly recked!

All sorted out really, just expect pads to be green ones and gloves to be GM Original LE. But here is most of it;

I have a pair of gloves for different situation...

For example, if I'm expected to bat out a vital couple of overs, or build a slow long innings I use a pair of Adidas gloves.

If I need a quick 30/40 or fancy a bit of a bash, I use my Woodstock's...

Maybe a bit superstitious but it's one of those things where when your in the habit, it's tough to get out of!

I have a different set of gloves depending on which bat I use as they have to match (and I am really considering un branded pads to avoid 2 brands being used)

Just a couple of updates to the kit bag this year.
The Lukey sports bat weighs in at 2'7. Bit of a new shape for me with the extreme edges, lower swell and flatter back.

Title: Re: Your kit for 2013 season
Post by: LDifa on April 01, 2013, 10:31:56 PM
yes the pads are the two strap and I love them, I have never liked three strap pads as the top strap usually digs into the back of my knee and they were cheap off eBay, I would love to use the forum for everything but sometimes half price is well its half price!
The Icon was from Lorrimers, so they hand selected their bats, the Apex again hand selected but from Romida, both before I discovered this place.  I have just taken off their anti scuff sheets, to give them a sanding and prep, the Icon has literally no pick up, yet I still hit the ball into the groundsman's shed twice (long boundary as well) in a charity game, I got it because Trott used them, naive I know but what a great bat.

Revolution Cricket is a sportsware provider who also sell cricket equipment. I think they are a "brand" rather than a maker of hand made bats.

Nothing to do with Lion Revolution (!)

yep they sure are.  The bat is actually a Slazenger V23 which I think was a model brought out for Michael Clarke for the 2006 Champions Trophy.  The stickers on the V23's were green and gold but were all tatty and falling off when I bought the bat so I replaced them. It's a gun bat.

Nice looking gear Dave, what happened to the KG?  :o  How much did the Remfry guards set you back? I've been thinking of getting a new set, but not sure if I should just stick with P2s, or get Stretton/Remfry...

Kg is around so are a few others mate this is kit I carry the kit bag in the garage is stuff not going to use.

The thigh pads I think where 150 I think all in all with transfers e armguards came from my good friend uzair

Yes but I having a clear out soon a crap and odds part 2......

Must remember I owe julesoak something

Got a few bats tucked away a chase or two and a few others gave a few away recently

Easy for me to say chad but I wouldn't buy any other thigh guard if mine lasts 10 years it will have been worth it

Fair enough, I need a big clearout, got plenty of kit I'm not going to use to get rid of! :(

Ah right, so around the same price bracket as Stretton Fox... A tough choice, I want something just a little bit less obtrusive than the P2s, but I think I would be scared of losing my thigh-pads if I got SF. :-[

Just gone from TLB/Ayrtek to Kook to GN. Used the Kook Pads in a couple nets but found the back leg just rode up my leg. Got some Legend gloves at a good price and I was away!

Never had GN softs before, so was quite keen to try them out as I've used every other mainstream brand.

I normally take an annual trip down to there, only an hour for me.

Not necessarily the highest quality bats but I trust Richard, the bat maker, and he makes the best balanced bat I've ever used! Especially, a guy like me shouldn't be using £400 custom made bats since I usually break 2 or 3 a year due to playing 4/5 times a week.
Title: Re: Your kit for 2013 season

Post by: SelectCricket on April 11, 2013, 10:41:22 AM
He always has the horses on when I'm down there!
Great bloke, never seen someone balance a bat as nicely as him.

I always go down there and grab a 2lb 11oz bat that picks up as light as my 2lb 7oz Adidas Elite.
Awesome stuff and so cheap. Last one he gave me at £100!

Yer they offer good deals to customers they know and trust.

Like you said not always the greatest wood or the best lookers but they certainly fly

100% agree on that.
Went down there looking for a top piece of wood and he soon convinced me to not worry about all that, and I, to be honest, believe him. Some of the top end bats only look cosmetically better than some of his at times. Not sure how well that opinion would go down on this forum though..

Why do you use a different helmet in nets and matches? I'd have expected that to be one item that it would make the most sense to have the same for both given the difference in grill and peak and the impact on seeing the ball?

Well my league team wear green and it was cheaper to buy a new lid than refurb my Ayrtek. That said I might well use my Ayrtek on Sundays as the teams I play for wear navy gear. The visibility and weight are pretty similar between the two, so I'm happy changing between them.

Chase Volante (2.11?)
Vantage Volt (2.10)
Dynadrive (2.10)

Nixon 964 gloves
Redback modern

Nixon 964 pads

Kook padded shorts

Asics Gel 180s

Albion something or other...

Pod One bag (which I have finally worked out how to pack properly)

Unlikely (he says) to change, apart from the Volt getting refurbed and perhaps my beloved 666 going back in the bag if it is salvageable - heavy on pads though (bat rubs against back pad in my stance) so that may be the only addition.

One set of pads and gloves lives in the big bag and goes to the club weekends, the other goes in the duffle bag for CS games.  The M&H softs are marginally my preference but only marginally.

As for bats, I used the Master last weekend and the Distinction midweek.  The Tempo and Hattori also go to most matches, though the older of the two B52s is possibly the best bat I've owned and goes when I'm out of form.  The Black Cat will also see some games this year.  Most of the others are unlikely to...

My match kit is all my HitsHard gear. This is the suff at my house.

evospeeds will be absolutely fine, they are mainly white, with blue and red

Haven't seen black shoes in a game since a guy got roped in at the last minute for the opposition wearing his black office shoes (don't panic, they had rubber grips...)

Came out to bat at number 11, got hit on the head.  Shook it off, was asked by our skipper if he wanted to borrow a helmet, declined, then later in the same over managed to duck into a ball that was slightly short of a length and got hit again!  Carried on regardless.  I call it natural selection...

Anyway I digress - brave wearing those in a game!

Don't make the mistake though

A lad once I was playing with in Australia came out for the oppo with dark shoes on and black socks I thought tuck in time he split my masuri in half nearly with his 2nd delivery and in truth was too quick on a astro for me if I totally honest

Kit is kit but doesn't mean your decent

How are you getting on with the Oblivion pads mate? I know you are quite picky and like the same style pad as me
Title: Re: Your kit for 2013 season
Post by: Liam-SCCC on May 04, 2013, 09:23:25 AM
Used them in a couple games and a couple nets, the first game I used them I batted for about an hour and a half. No discomfort and they were very comfy, that was straight out of the packet as well. They are a little bigger than say Kook pads, but they feel good, protection is also very good.

They don't sit that low as they have a shallow instep, won't be surprised if the canes snapped with the way I keep pushing them down! The top hat is very nicely design, has that bit of give in it so it its set back into your thigh

My new and improved (and trimmed down) bat collection. Having sold 4 bats and bought 2 recently, this is now my new lineup. I'm pretty pleased with it, although 2 haven't been used yet.

My BB is my favourite, in terms of profile and performance (although haven't used my RI or Mechten yet). BB is Saturday match bat, the other 3 will battle for Sunday games while the Vantage (an MSR) is my net. All weigh between 2lb 10oz and 2lb 12oz, except the MSR which is 2lb 14oz. All have 2 grips on and most shoe goo.

The kook bat I sourced for the no 11 bat in our 2nd team last season but he has gone AWOL so I still have it

The mh 2010 is about 2 10 but feels very light, the 2012 one is 2 11 but feels about that as the handle is thin. Both are superb bars with over 72mm spines

Gloves are x2 puma 5000 gloves from 2010 x2 duck and run x2 mh distinction x1 bb gloves and unused puma pulse gloves

Pads puma kinetic 5000 and the bionic ones which are unused

I'm going to flog the bb bat and gloves ..... I think 200 for both is reasonable ... Both have never been used or even left my house

Yeah I couldnt resist when it came up on here, fancied a SAF for ages.

Haven't got round to using it yet though, same with the RI.

The GM is a gun too, used it on Sunday for first time in a while. Forgot how meaty the middle is.

I'm pretty happy with that as a collection though. Think the SAF/RI will get used this weekend, one of them at least.

(left to right)

2.6 msr net bat, decent ping and does the job for a light bat, really happy with it for 30 quid
not weighed it but feels around 2.9 i think its tim keeley made, knot in the toe but response with the mallet is ridiculous! Really suits me probably my match bat this season.
2.10 spyer legend, nice ping and not concaved so lots of meat around the blade.
masuri steel helmet
spyder venom pads, i would recommend these to anyone best pads ive used by a mile, reversed canes so great protection but also very comfy ,also very light.
ascis, not sure what model but very comfy and serving me well into their second season now
sypyer sausage style gloves cant really see them but likewise with the pads offer great protection and comfert, the palms are like new even though i have used them around twice a week since september.
aero p2's we know about these do a great job
slazenger box :D
sidearm pro sticking out in the left hand corner great tool once you get used to it
then my caps
hyde cc
hawk green cc
tameside district
cheshire county.

really happy with my kit and all came at decent prices, with my discount from gary at spyer everything in the pic comes in at about £485 which is relatively cheap on this forum  :D

([url]http://i1306.photobucket.com/albums/s567/Ben_Ringrow/photo2_zps211eeaf9.jpg[/url]) ([url]http://s1306.photobucket.com/user/Ben_Ringrow/media/photo2_zps211eeaf9.jpg.html[/url])

(left to right)

2.6 msr net bat, decent ping and does the job for a light bat, really happy with it for 30 quid
not weighed it but feels around 2.9 i think its tim keeley made, knot in the toe but response with the mallet is ridiculous! Really suits me probably my match bat this season.
2.10 spyer legend, nice ping and not concaved so lots of meat around the blade.
masuri steel helmet
spyder venom pads, i would recommend these to anyone best pads ive used by a mile, reversed canes so great protection but also very comfy ,also very light.
ascis, not sure what model but very comfy and serving me well into their second season now
sypyer sausage style gloves cant really see them but likewise with the pads offer great protection and comfert, the palms are like new even though i have used them around twice a week since september.
aero p2's we know about these do a great job
slazenger box :D
sidearm pro sticking out in the left hand corner great tool once you get used to it
then my caps
hyde cc
hawk green cc
tameside district
cheshire county.

really happy with my kit and all came at decent prices, with my discount from gary at spyer everything in the pic comes in at about £485 which is relatively cheap on this forum  :D


Any chance on a bit of a review / info on the spyder please? Opposition opening bat had a nice one a couple of weeks ago that went well

Is that Cheshire cap the East?

i play for the full county under 14's side however im based in stockport

yeah mate gary gave me a deal when i went down to the shop he's a really nice guy. I'm pretty sure they are indian made but he has a lot of top quality bats this one is my second which he replaced free of charge because my old one snapped, its got a very meaty profile to it and even if you dont middle it it still goes a decent way, if anything it may be a little too heavy for me but i still feel very comfortable using it and with some lead tape the pick up is really nice, if you want any more info feel free to pm me and im happy to answer any questions

haha cheers fella! thinking of going to a raw green carbon helmet, but don't really know if i could justify spending that much! if you'd brought some of those bats off of me i would have been alright lol!

Thought you just got some Michael Clarke spartan pads? And didn't like the legend top hat?
Title: Re: Your kit for 2013 season
Post by: procricket on June 12, 2013, 07:39:43 PM
The spartan had a small rip in the mesh so they went back and I swapped them for the legends plus legends are small men's

I have had legends before I didn't like the 2011 versions but there better nowadays the meterials used are great and being sma men's the top bat is slightly different to normal but not big and they fit well and have already started moulding mate

Nearly went maverick elites small men's very nice as well great pads and materials used.

Bats: Wombat Dig In (2'7), Wombat Select (2'8), Wombat Big Hitter (2'7)
Pads: Wombat Dig In
Gloves: Wombat Dig In, Wombat Match
Thigh Pads: Kookaburra Beast, Woodworm (Inner)
Arm Guard: Wombat Test
Box: Willowizard
Helmets: Albion Test Elite Ti22 (2008), Albion Classic (2013)
Shoes: Nike Air Century Opener
Hat (Not Shown): Albion Greg Chappell Signature
Kit Bag (Not Shown): Icon Players Plus

Wombat is an Australian company with bases in Melbourne and Sydney. Their stuff comes out of India. The bats have an awesome ping (I haven't used the Wombat Big Hitter T20 style bat yet) and the pads and gloves are top quality and very light and comfortable.

I have always had Albion helmets. I've just recently upgraded to the Albion classic with the new closer fitting grill which I find suits me very well. Very comfortable lid but I still really like the older Test Elite Ti22. Maybe I'll keep one here in Australia and keep one in the UK.

I'm trying the Nike shoes this season as I got them very cheap ($29 AUD). I usually use Asics, however for the price I'm sure the Nikes will do fine.

The Icon Players Plus kit bag is in my opinion the best cricket bag on the market. It has everything you could possibly want. I actually bought it after watching a review about it on youtube.

That's my kit anyway! I'm usually one for smaller brands as I feel I'm not paying for the name. Wombat have been outstanding and can highly reccomend their gear for both quality, price and service.

Just checked there website look like some good stuff. Not a big fan on the stickers tho. Do you know the prices of the bats? Can't seem to find any prices on there website just a catalog on what gear they have.

The top of the range (Dig In) bat has new stickers and looks awesome. But for some reason it won't let me upload the pic:(
The bat cost me $200AUD, the pads were $50 and gloves $45. The gear is better than high end brands which would charge over double. I leave for the UK soon and will have the full wombat kit on show. Last year I just borrowed people's as I didn't take my own!

Standard is suburban cricket. Reasonably good, but fast bowlers rarely reach 80mph with most in low 70s.

Pads are excellent. Wrap around the legs well and I would say are test standard.

Let me just start of by saying what a wonderful forum this is, I have been reading for a while now and just decided to join.  I never new soo many others were into cricket gear 'porn' as much as I was.
So what better way to introduce myself then to post my kit.
I'm Zac and I play for a team called the Landsborough Loggers, it's my first season back in many years so am struggling to find form and carry it from nets to the game but am confident I will get a good start and top my high of 17 so far this season.

GN Predator 750 Bag
(http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a300/sv5000r/IMG_6256_zpsb090d1bf.jpg)

What I hide in the pockets
A few accessories, GN batting inners, Puma keeping inners, GN Legend Gold keeping gloves, Asics Gel Gully 3
(http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a300/sv5000r/IMG_6257_zpse4d80b96.jpg) (http://s13.photobucket.com/user/sv5000r/media/IMG_6257_zpse4d80b96.jpg.html)

What I manage to somehow fit in the main compartment.
2 bats, GN Predator 750 pads, Puma balistic keeping pads, GN Nitro thigh pad, GN Predator 750 gloves, GN Legend Gloves, GN box, my hats and my beautiful Ayrtek helmet :)
(http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a300/sv5000r/IMG_6261_zps13c434c9.jpg)

And of course my current bats.
Gray-Nicolls E41 1000LE match bat and my old GN Scimitar 750, solely used in the nets now.
(http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a300/sv5000r/IMG_6266_zps49a76605.jpg)

(http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a300/sv5000r/IMG_6268_zpsbaa21f7d.jpg)

I just finished re-extratecing and gluing up cracks in the E41 as we are on a mid season break, so it looks almost new again.

I have a shopping list on the new year partially inspired by the Custom bats forum
Hell 4 Leather Hattori
Hell 4 Leather NV
Gray-Nicolls Legend Pads
Gray-Nicolls Ultimate All-in-one
Gray-Nocolls Test protector

I love the GN Legend softs but their current bats and grading this year in Australia have left me with a very fowl taste, so after narrowing it down between H4L and Affinity I have chose H4L and hopefully an Affinity Phantom and Spectre at the end of the season.

GM 909 pads
Puma gloves (not sure what model)
Masuri test helmet - black
Asic Gel 180 not out
GN e41 thigh guard

looking at using this stuff as my net kit now that im back into it. so looking to upgrade.
recently purchased a blank bat of a club mate who i think gets made through talent cricket.
