I like more grains, not due to looks, but mainly due to all my many grains bats go instantly and don't need to open up,

The issue with that is, they are soft and don't last long, that b3 did 900 runs last year, yet had two refurbs!

My mates b3 with 12grains, did 900 runs, and looks like the day it came out the factory..........

There's no doubting that, has very little bearing on a soft bat though. But it's a forum I should have closed that loophole. Newb mistake.

can someone explain this opening up phenomenon to me, does it literally split down the grains?

Is a bat not just knocked in when it stops denting and and no seam marks are presnt??

Personally, I have absolutely no idea what is it.

I know when you have scored about 1500 runs with a bat the grains may well have split a bit and the wood cracks - but opening up? I have no idea

now a bat with a loved face like

that is a treat!

You won't see many bat like that on here.

My one and only bat, which I used last year would have people on here laughing at the state of it!,

I have a bat similar to what buzz posted.  It was an itias which has been through many facelifts over the years, scoring me close to 1200 runs in all formats. But its still going strong as a back up willow. From my recollection itias bats were as bats and from my memory and very soft pressed. So in my eyes. Hard/soft pressing in relation to bat longevity is rubbish. All about how you play and care of the bat

My Hammer Bat Has Split down the grains just from knocking in, I Hit the bats very hard to get this happening to get the max performance.
