Some pics from my day at GN. Alex was the bat maker and a great host as well

There were 4 clefts to choose from

Sadly one fell victim to the press


Cleft chosen, i showed Alex where i hit the ball and we marked off the area to put the most wood behind. Weight region of 2.9-2.10 requested

We got down a bat from the shelf to give Alex an outline of what sort of shape i was after




Now time to remove some wood




Pretty much done

Just the handle to go, fortunately in the nick of time a shout of thick oval saved the day ( talking of handles, Sam Billings now requests a 22mm handle!!!!!)



Bat at this stage weighed just over 2.9, still needed sanding, binding, grip, and stickers, so would go over 2.10. I was happy with it at this stage so i decided to see what it picked up like once gripped and before stickers.
Happy with the pick up, now to choose the stickers

Went with the powebow6x


And a custom back sticker as the bat was too big for the standard stickers

Finished weight

And finally the GN edge branding

Top day out, and a massive thanks to Alex, the bat is superb.

Some extra pics of the bat





Specs are, 2.11, 40mm edges, 71mm spine, no concaving, 42mm handle thickness inc grip
