One man's fake sponsorship is another man's taking care of one's appearance. You wouldn't step out in a black suit jacket and navy suit trousers would you?!

Self Amalgamating tape (non-branded Grip-Grip)

Never thought of GripGrip and self amalgamating tape... now it makes so much sense! How could I be so blind? Assuming it works just as well...?

Works the exact same! (For me anyway) and saved me a small fortune...

Both worked perfectly for me last season [emoji3] I'd recommend self amalgamating tape as you can do a lot of bats with just one 2 roll.

I'll be getting some of this, and I'll try it on my leaking washing machine hose too, which it seems it's good for from reading reviews. Who'd have thought CBF would be the place to come for DIY advice :-)

After finally finding time to have a good look at the collection, weigh each bat individually and put it on a spreadsheet, I have decided on what I'll be keeping! (55 bats is the current count) Here are the ones which made the cut for my personal collection!



From left to right:
01. SS LE - Repaired a snap, still awesome, but will probably die soon. Scored the most runs with this one!
02. SS Butterfly - Full profile and 2.10 dead. Such a nice response, incredible, almost as good as the SS LE.
03. BAS Shadow (B3 Stickers) - Still not used this, incredible bat. Had it rehandled by B3 as handle was squint.
04. B3 Mullanator 1 Stripe - The best bat I've had from B3, just immense in terms of size, response and pick up.
05. H4L Warbird G2 (Vitas) - Lovely bat, was one of the first Warbirds available for sale to the public. Incredible pick up.
06. H4L Hattori G2 (IJC) - Same as above, lovely bat, and pick up is great! Better than the older Hattori I reckon.
07. BB Misbah LE - Well balanced bat, incredible looks and all round performance, classy stickers - what more to say?
08. Phantom Shadow LE - Bought from Maverick79 on here. Lovely bat, some disappointing aspects, but good enough! (Will explain in separate thread)
09. Helios Atlas - Still perhaps the best responding bat I've ever owned, and possibly the oldest bat in this collection.
10. L&W CHAD Reserve - The original CHAD profile. The grains, the pick up, the shape, just everything about it oozes class.
11. L&W J. Millichamp Reserve - Profile based on the classic profile Julian Millichamp made famous among us kit nerds. C-Ten handle.
12. L&W Bradman Signature - Used to be a 3lb 1oz brute! Still a good sized bat at 2lb 9.4oz, and shaped to Bradman's profile. Gorgeous.
13. L&W CHAD Copy Reserve - Copy, which had weight taken off. Response is arguably better, as is pick up, all while being 2 ounces lighter!
14. RK 19reading87 Custom - Got off Reds, not dissimilar to the Mullanator. Ridiculous pick up.
15. GM Epic Original Limited Edition - Little cracker, a toothpick by todays standards, but response is right up there.
16. GM Purist Original - The REAL Purist, lovely shape and grains. Just gotta love the classic profiles!


The ones which have actually been used, most usage on left to least on right.



Dem grainz:





The Salix Pod Players is actually my brothers, and has probably seen the heaviest use of the lot. It's been played in so well, I'm surprised he's nailed the middle so often! Bought from IJC, it's still in great knick, and was purchased back in 2012, when the Players was the best offering Salix had!

Aaaand the ones that I have yet to use:



Dem grainz again:






Now, the next thing to worry about, shifting a bunch of bats, and also I have a bunch coming... Why do I never learn?!

I know the feeling @Chad got 2 H4L customs and a B3 pro before I've shifted the bats I wanted to part with!!

How does everyone have all this money for so many bats? I can barely afford to refurb mine!

Well, I can't rival some of these collections but here are my bats for next season -






Left to right:

THESE THREE I'LL USE -

Uzi Sports Mamba blank - 2.10,  not knocked in yet, but sublime pick up - feels much lighter and really promising rebound of a mallet and old ball
B3 - 2 stripe - 2.8, massive for the weight, used in the nets and really cracking rebound of the bat
'The' Warbird - 2.10, my new baby and special favourite thing. it has a face maybe only it's mother would love, but I've netted with it, simply stunning performance (even with my skills)


THESE THREE I'LL PROBABLY SELL TO CLUBMATES

Chase Finback R4 - 2.8, featherlight pickup, fully knocked in, ovalish handle
Unknown Indian Blank - 2.11, chunky, square-edged thing, but with a massive bottom!!
Mongoose COR3 G3 - 2.9, great pickup for such a slab-like thing, ugly face, but pretty good off the mallet - might even keep this one.

@FattusCattus => You do have an unrivaled collection of bats ...  :D.

Question regarding B3 2 strip bat. Is that your complete custom design or a specific model number as listed in B3 chart ? For 2lb8oz bat does have pretty chunky edges. Edge size 35mm or more ?
