Is that in for a refurb or is that from your personal collection?

Was bought in by a customer today for a new grip. They have kindly left it here for me to take a few photos.

One of our guys has got a Zenith which I think is a slightly earlier model - still in use and going well - another big unit - (erm, does that make me a nerd?)  :o

Is it just the pic or does it have a slight scoop near the toe on the back side?
How much does it weigh?

Feel free to send it to me Jake, and I will change the grip and also put a new scuff sheet on after I have had a damn good few nets with it whilst I'm at it!  ;)

It weighs 2'10.

The toe area has been flattened off, it's not really a scoop, not really a duck bill either, just looks like its been sanded flat rather than following the contours of the spine.

I want to have a little hit with it, but not sure i could face the chap if it broke!

To my knowledge the Royal and 3 other models that escape me were the first Salix branded bats produced by Kember & his team. Zenith was a brand who's bats were produced by the Salix team I think? Perhaps wrong.

He's looked after it. When would have that bat been made? Certainly an advertisement for using a facing.

I'll check next time I see the guy, it does have salix stickers on it though, and the handle is the thickest I've ever seen - like a pickaxe! I'll try to get pics too.
