Not sold, I still have it all.

And changing the subject? I'm still waiting for you to send me pictures of the bat covers as I was willing to swap!

Mine for this season, missing my Warbird as it's currently with someone else as they needed a bat! Absolutely no concaving on the bats whatsoever.

Hey @Ams4287 , how do you define a Newbery? My answer depends on your one. ;)

The Helios is actually the Tour on the right in the first picture, and the Tour on the left I believe was Kieron's (from Bulldog) match bat. Both had domed profiles similar to the Newbery Tour, and I felt like refurbishing them, so got my hands on some Tour stickers to do so. They both look incredible and have similar profiles, so the Tour stickers suit. :) The Lavers I've not really used, just because I've been trying to stick to a few bats this year, and I believe the only bats I've used in matches are the B&S and my H4L Warbird!

Finally got al of my kit ready and shouldn't be buying any more kit his season!!

Bats:

2) newbery Krakatoa
3) adidas incurza

Gloves:
1) hell4leather custom
2) gray nics predator 4*

Pads:

1) newbery tt

Misc:

Old masuri steel
Box
Got a puma arm guard somewhere
Aero p2

And I've got a bag of bat repair stuff or grips wax tape etc


Ok so this list is nearly accurate by with another set of pads added: heritage spitfire (the same as my newbery tt pads just a different colour way)
Pics below;












All that isn't in the is my spikes which are Pumas but I'm after another pair possibly adidas sl22s but that can wait until the off season and another bag/bigger bag to replace my county duffle

This was the kit I used this year together with some post-season thoughts. Most of the bats have featured on the forum already hence no photographs.

Bats

B3 Series DB1 2lb 14oz - used once first match of the season, very good indeed and went from ball one, sold it to a team mate purely because I had too many bats. Had featured on the forum when new

Gray-Nicolls Powerbow Strauss LE 2lb 12oz - a lovely bat used in earnest this season, was tempted in to sell it though. Had featured on the forum when new.

Millichamp & Hall Amplus profile 2lb 14oz (storm damaged) - two years old and still going strong (!), used mainly in nets.

Warsop Butterfly 2lb 12oz - one of the last "pure" Butterfly bats from Warsop (nowadays all bats can be graded as Butterfly with the sticker added), traditional profile with thinner edges and no concaving, does feel harder than my other bats, the ball certainly travels when middled. Less effective off-centre though as would be expected with this shape.

Gray-Nicolls Powerbow Generation X Extreme Players 2lb 14oz - on line gamble from SD, huge bat even for the weight and performance is very impressive indeed. Really pleased with this, has made me realise how G-N have gained their reputation. Was a bit sceptical given some of the willow grading examples on here.

Softs

Have mainly used Gray-Nicolls Oblivion E41 Test gloves and Powerbow Players pads from a couple of years ago. Alternatively, M&H Alpha. Good kit.

Wicket Keeping

Sold my Ton Gladiator Elite gloves early in the season, replaced with G-N Legend. The Ton gloves were I thought at the time very good but once softened up a bit, the Legends are a joy to use and superior imo (and fit me better).

I acquired some matching Legend pads, these are quite narrow which I may get used to but haven't had match use yet. Continuing with Salix Pod pads which are more generous in size and I really like them, wearing well too.

Shoes

Asics ODI for most of the season, not sure I can notice any difference from the Advance but as I got a good deal this is not material, I am very happy with them, used for batting, bowling, WK, fielding and a spot of bowling too.
