15hours of hand knocking in!!  :o !! Will there be any life left in the bat

Should use a mallet, 15 hours with the hand does nothing.

and their prices are absurd! I posted a 200g small satchel 100kms from the post office and it cost $15!

Ryan managed to cop a hit on the ankle and delayed postage until early last week...I'm in tassie so it takes awhile at the best of times...I'm expecting it'll be on the doorstep today/tomorrow I guess

I use Interparcel and select Startrack Authority to Leave. Pickup a bat from my front door in Adelaide to anywhere in Australia within 4 days for about $15.

Bat arrived yesterday! Very impressed by it! Will get photos and measurement sorted within a few days!

Early ball tests suggests it'll play in nicely and already feels/sounds better than my grade 1 kookaburra patriot (GCCC special) it's replacing!

Only a few days late after getting caught on the long boundary rope playing straight Sunday... :(

quick snaps with horrible lighting and iphone camera

a mishap by me yesterday with the scuff sheet catching on the bag and peeling 25mm at the toe, meant i had to remove the original and fitted a new scuff tonight...just waiting on a fresh roll of tape before i retape the edges... **also missing the edge stickers due to this :( **
 
the kookaburra is last years crush that was released as a Big Bash special...its also 2lb7 and also sounds/pings alot nicer than the grain structure would suggest...

hoping to find my verniers in the garage on thursday to take a few measurements for those that asked along with better photos during the day... but edges on the hitman are ~43mm according to a metal ruler

Doesn't mean it's not a good un (my match bat for the last 3 years is a has been a low end CA that flies), but would i be correct in suggesting the grip means it's likely a Pakistan made bat?

not sure in relation to the grip...i hadnt seen any like it before...i had every intention to remove it and give the aero grip a try but after handling the bat i actually like it...feels alot better than most other grips ive previously used...kookaburra ones being the only others ive liked and generally carry a few spares...

ill assume the III VK is refering to the profile...but unsure what the second photo was before being scribbled out...

****edit - have just noticed ulysses offer the same grip****

i was waiting for the bat snobs...

- willow appearance wise its not pretty/handle finish is rough
- stickers are of an exceptional high quality
- profile/weight is exactly what i wanted
- customer service offered was second to none
- shop bats at similar pricing didn't come close
- early bash with both mallet and ball suggests itll perform quite well compared to anything else i own
- this bat is also one of the CHEAPEST bats hitman offers....

its no australian GN players bat...but i didn't want it to be ;)
