Marcus Trescothicks bat handle set up
« on: June 20, 2011, 02:06:40 PM »

What tape does he use when doing his particular set up and does he tape at the top of the bat to?

If anybody has a pic that would be greatly received,

White elastoplast. Nothing at the top of the handle.

Actually thinking on it, think Tresco was in a GM batmaking video, possibly talking about handles, not 100% sure though! Worth a look

I think he increases the thickness of the bottom hand with it but could be wrong

The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.

Would a simple half grip just not do that?

Yeah but depends how he puts his hands on the bat, i use tape rather than a half grip. It goes thicker in the middle into thinner towards the end whereas a half grip your hand has to fit to it.

That's the bat he used to score a century against the WI in the ICC Champions Trophy final...

Oh really, even better! Had plenty nets use though! Do you own it Tom? Just any tape i can find for the lower handle, electrical tape, fabric tape, it's only a small amount just to make it feel a bit more comfy. Also if I have a bat with an oval handle I tend to use a bit more

I might try some cloth tape on my new cook and see how it goes...

Held that bat, felt horrible to me! Just goes to show what suits one person doesn't suit everyone. Oh and the handle shape was disgusting!
