I had a Lords Taverner bat that was covered in that stuff. It was awful until the stuff ripped, so I took it off to reveal a beautiful bit of willow that went like stink and was one of the best bats I've ever owned! :)

Let me just remind you that this is a bat where the middle hss been, quite literally, scooped out... Polyarmour or no, it hasn't got one!

Tim Tim I've had a monent of genius. We can take your middle-less bat and stick a thin ridge atop it, then emigrate to the antipedes and turn them out for 400 a pop!

comes to something when the handle is thicker than the bat. I bet Lara would never score 375 with that. It would've been some ultralight G1 ++++**** willow in the same profile but twice as thick :-(

The scary thing is that the Diamond I started this thread with is 2oz lighter than that scoop... And looks to be significantly bigger than it, even at the edges. It's also a totally different shape to the GN100 Scoop listed earlier in here.

Drool!

That's in super condition! Same generation as my scoop, except the graphics were unrecognisable on mine.
