My 2 new b3 no stripe specials and Ryan and simmy tour
« on: January 03, 2014, 05:03:36 PM »

Well with my birthday around the corner and i decided to treat my old B3's to a refurbishment and a bit of a fix so i asked Forum legend Simon "Simmy" Ward and batmaker Ryan Kelsall down with my to the fun palace and see the guys at B3 and get a tour for the lads.

Once again Russell, Streaky, and office manager Rob looked after us impeccably and when called apon the busy Gavin was a great help and i must say he is one busy man and fair play to him and thanks.

After the lads went on the tour looking at things B3 Me and Streaky went over to the machine where i came across 2 bats handled and roughly shaped (one made for a retiring opening international bowler) and the other some custom design i asked what they where doing to Streaky reply there factory 2nds due to one having the tinest crack on the back of the edge(it did come out after it final sanding) and the other had a slight hairline crack on the shoulder.

I looked at the quality of the blades and although not a normal lover of heartwood though yes i will have them.

Streaky was reluctant and refused to name a price until i said there yours to sell fella so he made us both right down what we would both want and mine was higher so i got them for the lower price.

Anyway after a sand and polish and badging i think there very tidy sticks they tap up superbly well as standard and i think i have got myself a right bargain.

Here are the 2 bats

both 2-9 on the nose but pick up much lighter


both have 37mm edges at highes point

one has 9 grains the other 13 grains.

Both pick up lighter

One has a long handle which i was asked if i wanted to keep i did.

Pictures to follow


I hope Ryan and Simmy had a good day and once again i must stress i buy B3 because they make good bats i do not work for them or any other company YET.... They deal in good bats and i can relate to that and i love the keeping gloves too.
And cheers to B3 for hosting us

Rubbish company and rubbish bats!

Only kidding...thanks for the lads for the hospitality today and thanks to dave for letting me and simmy tag along. 

I must say that I'm very impressed with the setup at B3 and everyone was very approachable and passionate about what they do.

There's definitely a place for machine made bats as well as traditional methods and B3 have merged them perfectly. 

Can I please have my brown envelope now???  :o

It's a shame I use ridicolous big bats, they never have anything interesting in my weight when I go down.


Don't suppose my mates orange stickered 3lb trott profiled bat was there and refurbed?

I have a pair of the keeping gloves and pads-they are outstanding. I was down there over Xmas getting my b3 re stickered. Cannot fault the service...
