Hmmm.. kit for next year as well as Winter training.. think i'll give the Winter League a miss again as last year's was a debarcle...
Bats - My refurbed H4L 666 stickered as an NV was feeling lovely at the end of this season so it'll continue in Winter training but need to break in my Affinity Phantom which feels lovely in the hands ready for next season... can't wait for that!
This leaves my Affinity Ayrtek which is quality but a tad heavy for me at 2.12, although the pick-up feels more like 2.10.. might have to let it go
Then there's an Aldred Velocity Grade 3 which I picked up from JB.. just came home to finally get my hands on it.. again pure quality; love the shape - will definitely be a gun but at 2.12 and a tad heavy pick up (with so much willow) for my humble wrists, I can't see it getting used unless an extra grip changes this significantly - I'm gutted really as have been waiting since mid-August to finally marvel at Paul's handy work. Again, one of my team mates will get a stunning bat in the coming months unless I go for a weight reduction but am undecided at the moment.
Sold all my other bat's this season - 7 or more to team mates so don't feel so guilty anymore about quality willow lying around. - Quick update 15.12 - to make up for the heavier bats in my reduced collection - taken a punt on one of Jake's B&S Assegai 3 stars last week, which if as good as I hope will eventually replace my repaired 666.
Kit - Really happy with my Ayrtek Premiertek ACIS lid, H4L NV gloves, Woodstock Airstream Pads and my Aero P2 Thigh Pads.
So, for 2015 - I'd love some Stretton Fox Thigh Pads but only at a reasonable price if anyone can't get on with them but that in all honesty is it.
