Are these a bit more of a Master/ extended middle shape than the last batch?
...actually it turns out the ones on this delivery are rather like the Master's. They also have the square toe, as is shown in the photos.

We have a new delivery of butterly willow bats due in from SS this afternoon.....weather permitting of course. Most of them will be in the 2.7, 2.8 and 2.9 weight range, with no stickers and just the TON stamp on the side.

Any interest, please send us a message.

In addition to the butterfly, we will have the latest Reserve, Gold, Player, Silver and Master models.

Hi,

Are these still round handled? Would definitely purchase if they came in oval.

Thanks!

A round handle can easily be made oval with a few strips of medical tape :)

Fairly sure @sarg did a youtube video on this.

Might be worth checking his youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/sargwilly1/videos

Might the problem be the bottom hand, not the handle?

I think batting  with soft bottom hand should help you.

Just received my butterfly, stain at the top and on the back but the face is clean just looks like your looking at it through frosted glass. Seems to ping well just quite a small and low middle, first go with it tonight in a corporate game where they tend to use awful balls. Very excited to see how it goes.

For your own sake I'd highly recommend not using a brand new bat in a game the same day you've received it, especially if the balls aren't good quality! There's a reason knocking in exists! :(

Apparently they come pre-prepared and have given it another 90 mins last evening just incase. Sheet and edge tape on and were good to go. 90 mins was probably the longest stint ive ever done knocking in but was a good evening of TV so headphones in and was all set

Thank you. I have already made the change even started using oval handle bat.

I noticed in nets it has helped me as i was smashing the ball nicely and i felt quite confident as well. ( i changed few other things too)
