Fusion back?
« on: November 15, 2011, 11:44:16 AM »

Check out their website. Seems as though they are currently doing a deal for a G1 bat for 119. Think I might have to treat myself!

Sent me a picture of the profile of the bats and they do look nice to be fair. Didn't see the grains on it though.

Really? I got one a few years ago, went down to see James and had it made in front of me. Just had the stock shape and there was little to no concaving on mine. Was very traditional.

I will be seeing James later today and will update on the bats he has to show/sell.

Had picked-up a few earlier in the year and they went well, but had a mid middle which is not the nest for wickets in the North West.

The bats he is offering the deal are more chunkier and have a mid to low middle.

The way James is now working is to send pressed clefts with handles to a bat maker in Pakistan and get them to do the shaping. The final finishing and grading is done here.

James will be shortly shifting his workshop to a new location and possibly making some new stuff and more bats
