My New Mids ZH Power!
« on: June 24, 2011, 11:19:52 AM »

Hey Guys,

I did a really bad thing, I bought a new bat (shame on me). ;) Well I dont think we have had one of these on here so I thought I'd post the first one. It's a Mids ZH Power, it weighs just over 2lbs 9oz and it's got 16 grains. the grains aren't perfectly ruler straight or even spaced but they still look good to me. I'm always vary about getting bats from the subcontinent but as I've had that many, I know you do get some quality bats. Believe me you can find some real gems, you just have to sift though the muck.

Anyway let me know what you guys think.

PS sorry  for the picture quality, my camera is on the blink so had to use my iphone.

Looks exactly like mine. I've lent it to someone & it plays very nicely.

They are made in pakistan, in sialkot. Mids have been making bats for quite some time. Mr Lekka, I can assure you its not a re stickered bat, i got through a friend who gets lots of bats from pakistan for his shop in manchester.

Which stickers are missing then from the back of the bat ?

The finish looks atrocious.

I hear Lekka make useable grips... ;) he might need one for this bat - I think the black and white one will work well !!!

P.S. I love the way the toe guard has been filed and the MIDS has been written in by hand!!

P.P.S I hope that bat is a real go-er for you by the way :)

They come with a large ugly sticker on the back. I took mine off & I assume qalib13 did the same.

I've lifted the grains a little so It needs a light sanding to tidy it up

FYI boys these are very very good bats and I highly recommend them for value and performance.

I took the grip off myself, it wasn't very nice so I will be adding a new spiral grip. there was a sticker on the back which I removed myself. Like will stated it is very ugly and just too busy, so I removed and it just gripped some of the wood. I'll be sanding before match use.

In case Mr Lekka doesn't believe me here's the sticker. So much contempt in your voice, for anyone else's products, its not a good look. You should really have someone look into that. You must be a glass half empty guy. :)

I paid 100 for it, not bad considering its a good quality bat. They retail around 170 but I got a good deal through my mate.I've had a few mids but that was back in the day and they were only second to CA bats from Pakistan. This is the first one i've had in over 15 years and they haven't lost the performance.
