Wow. How much do they charge for those?

Funnily enough, I never asked him as I'm going over in April.... not really sure what's happening with them. They used to sponsor some of the Pak players early on back in the day, but they normally moved onto the bigger brands CA, Malik, Ihsaan etc..

Their website has been down for years too. I've had dealings with them over the years and personally had good dealings with them, but it is the old western union payments and sometimes the bats are a little heavy than they promise probably the old 2.8 vs 2 lbs 8 oz confusion lol

PS I was shown these short while ago. These are in the Uk, so no import tax. I'm guessing they have family members here.

I got quoted 240 or something as a special price to me, not sure what they would normally sell for,

Not having a pop but not sure 240 quid is a 'special price' based on what you can get for that in the UK.

Lovely looking bat that @mattw 👍

Fair enough... each to their own   ;)

Go with what makes you happy... topic going slightly left field but in line with this thread, have had some grainy bats made available to me by them. Not always taken the option up but they have offered blades they would supply to players and all I've had have been good blades. PS they dont do sharpies unfortunately.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion so I'm good :)

Sorry mate, as I said I wasn't having a pop. My point was more that the value would be buying these (as you will be maybe) on your travels, rather than in the UK.

Getting back to grains....Just prepping this at the minute for someone. Personally I like the grains on it but not what everyone would expect from a bat at this level maybe...

Perfection for me. Lovely even strip of heartwood and lovely straight grains through both back and front.

Re: Best Bat Grains thread... And Warsop visit
« Reply #1043 on: March 24, 2020, 03:39:49 PM »

I was always told you wanted the harder heartwood on outside edge so the edge doesn't split if you edge off. I had a really good visit to Warsop on Friday in Essex and he told me that pros do this because they *don't* expect to edge it much, and heart wood is more brittle.

Any clarifications please?

BTW I would really recommend visiting Warsop. They are really old school bat makers, grow some of their own willow, and showed me some beautiful clefts. They also said they will make a custom in any shape required, I presume for the same price as their normal range. Some great looking bats on the shelves as well. I think it's a shame we don't see so much of them on the pro circuit, or can CBF members identify some players that use them? I didn't see any on the Essex line up when I watched them last year at Fenner's. Mostly GNs.

I did see one monster bat which was both long blade and long handle. Should be ideal for me size wise, but I didn't like the feel of it at all...

I think Paul Walter is the only Essex player currently sponsored by Warsop.

Are bats with heartwood considered grade 1 or 1+? Are there any advantages or disadvantages?

Grade 2, technically?

Yes it is. I had exactly this bat earlier in the year (5* lite) and it was nice looking, but nothing like as good as this. Sold on the forum. It only cost 115 though from SD. How much was this one if you don't mind saying?
