width of grains
« on: November 18, 2012, 09:16:33 PM »

Just a quick question really, tryed to do a search but couldnt find anything.
Is the width of grains due to how fast the tree has grown? Ie a bat with 20 grains the tree has grown quickly and a bat with 6 grains the tree has grown slowly.
Is that right?

as per my knowledge yes as each cleft is roughly the same width and the grains can only differ due to the speed of the trees growth

This is school boy stuff. A grain represents a year of life in a tree. 6 grains, six years old. 20 grains, 20 years old.

A bat with 20 grains has taken longer to grow than a bat with 6 grains. I think each grain signifies a certain length of time the tree has grown.

It may be obvious to some mate but it wasn't to you, that's what the forum is for so don't be afraid to ask questions

Also, a bat with more grains comes from higher up the tree. They are not necessarily older. I didn't actually know this until I saw Andrew Kember on Monday...

I don't think many people did! Although if you think about it, it does kind of make sense, as trees are narrower higher up. 8)

Does this mean that better bats come from the top of the tree in most cases?

Better looking bats, but not necessarily better bats...

On grains, what are peoples preferences regarding them? Do you like a tight grain or a wider grain? I personally have always gone with a narrower grain but for no reason other than asthestics.

Personally I've always like around 10-12 even grains, I think it looks quite nice.
