Redback Paradox LE
« on: March 09, 2011, 06:34:53 PM »

My Redback Paradox just arrived today from Gary and I am so impressed. It's my first Redback and decided to go for one a while ago as a result of the growing reputation and great reviews on the forums. I have to say Gary hasn't disappointed (not that I expected him to) and has produced this beauty. I asked for a bat 2lb10oz which it is, between 9 and 12 grains (I think there are 13) mid middle and the largest hitting area possible. The bat responds very well to a mallet and the pick-up and balance are very good and can't wait to use it this season. I also got the traditional pads and gloves which are excellent. I used to have Salix softs and the Redback softs are far more comfortable and the pads lighter than them.

Here are some pics (hopefully-first time uploading pics). If it works and anyone wants to see some others I am quite happy to take them.

I will add to this review once I have finished knocking it in and had a net or two with it.

Woow looks amazing! I love it!

Finishing looks top notch as well, I am liking it! Is this proper Paradox shape (all the bow, concaving etc) or you have tweaked it a bit?

Do you mind posting pictures of there softs?

Thanks

Here are the pictures guys;

Yes as far as I am aware it is the normal Paradox shape. It has a lovely bow to it and the back is concaved but it's not extreme.
I loved the profile when I saw it on the Redback website and speaking to Gary about my style of play - he recommended the Paradox as well.

Will take some pics of the softs in a minute. How do you make them show up in a post - i must have done something wrong!

This REdback is the best one I have seen since I was born seriously! It is really good looking and I am loving the shape and bow looks impressive!

For its weight it is quite massive I would say.

You copy the image address and paste it in between

Just like you posted the links in OP of the pictures take them and put it (one at a time) between

So it should read like this before you submit posting;

Hi Chris - What you need to do is to put the weblink into some image tags. The image tag is just above the smiley face on post a reply (this one: :)) - when you have done that they should show up as direct pictures..hope that helps 8)

Thanks a lot for the picture mate, I appreciate it!

I have always liked Redback gloves and I really like the ones you bought.

Are these gloves stiff when you wear and do they feel comfortable and better than Salix? I have Salix softs so I just want to get a picture and compare them...
