Wanted one for a while!
« on: February 18, 2016, 01:08:11 AM »

So, after missing out on the net bats offer, I had been wanting a BB for a while. Every now and then I check out ebay and saw BB were selling a couple of bits and pieces. Sent a message about one of their offerings and ended up discussing something slightly different.

I can't do a proper review yet because I haven't spent much time knocking it in but first impressions are I'm very happy. 2lb 14 as advertised, picks up a little lighter perhaps but it isn't a light bat so won't ever feel like one. Response is very good and once knocked in I'm sure will improve but does need some decent mallet time.

Is this one of the 2'12 net bats they had on offer here?

That profile it's a bit naughty!
Newbery GT-esque in fact

In short, no. BB didn't have any more of those available. He gave me some info on what was available and I opted for this and was happy with the price we agreed on too.

Just goes to show what the forum sponsors can do for us.

Looks similar to the bottom bat in this pic from the net bat thread especially the mark across the face just below the stickers and the spot on right hander's outside edge. May be they came from the same tree  ;)

It does indeed look incredibly similar!

I didn't buy it as part of the net deal as I've only just bought it in the last 7 days. I was told he didn't have of that batch left and i'll back the forum sponsors until proved otherwise. Either way, I got a good deal and a bat im pleased with

I had reached out to them last week as well and was told all were sold. Well in any case, I love the full shape on this one and hope it goes well for you!
