Bespoke BlankBats!
« on: June 29, 2016, 04:19:06 PM »

As @WalkingWicket37 had asked me for pictures for this bat, I thought I would write a rather quick review before I step in my next meeting.

So, a teammate wanted a Long Blade and he asked me to sort him out, this occurred nearly fifteen weeks ago so I had sent BlankBats a request. They quoted two to three weeks of wait which was absolutely fine as we were waiting for the season to start whereas the bat came in less than two weeks which was impressive!!

I have posted a picture of its weight (below). The pickup is fairly light, however, it is the balance which impressed me. Generally I have found long blades to be little off-balanced but this wasnt such. It has standard round handle. Finishing is immaculate, ping is good, however, it needs playing in. Owner has been using it and he has nothing but praises, he swears by it. The last bat he was using was GM Halo Original Limited Edition.

Feel free to ask any question(s) and point any spelling error I have made. Ha!

Cheers!

No tape measure to prove it is a Long blade?  Just kidding! lovely bat and wow it is such a light weight. Get me thinking to approach BB for a similar one.

Any hint on your Test player buddy  :)

Haha, I will have to dig my phone and see if there is any picture showing that.

This was actually for a friend (locally) rather than test player buddy. Test player is a bowler who fancy a English bat!
