Why is Off side Boundary so small ?

It was shorter on one side but wasn't tiny. It's more the camera angle looking down and the pitch is literally in a bowl.
You run down a hill from both ends (hence why it's called Steep Hill...)

looking back at this is quite interesting.

my main match bat is now the h4l its bar far the best bat i have ever used pings like crazy and helped restore my confidence and a dismal run of form.

ive sold a couple of the bats and replaced them with others.

i have also sold most of the softs and replaced them during the season.

overall though i am now much happy with the kit i have

This was the kit I used most this season, pictured when new.

Purchased direct from M&H in autumn 2014 whilst visiting the area.

The bat is a Clearance item, sold as storm damaged, without warranty.
2lb 13oz high middle with Distinction labels.
The good news is it hasn't broken and am absolutely delighted with the performance.

Together with Alpha pads and gloves.

Lucky that's lasted mate, I tried that bargain bin once from M&H lasted 4 overs before became saw dust and they didn't give a hoot mate took ages before I finally got what I paid 150 off another bat but only if I bought a CK22 or Master at 400 plus pissed me off tbh. I do love that profile though.

thank you, yes I did consider your experience before taking the plunge.
I face fairly steady club cricket bowling, plus its a big bat.
tapped it up in the shop and it sounded perfect (if that is any guide to durability)
the profile certainly suits me

SG test pads
Blank online stockist gloves, I have a couple of pairs.
Stretton thigh pad set
SS platinum
B3 bespoke 3 stripe, Bragg used stick

How did you get on with those SG Test pads? I've had a pair of those in the past, but found them to be too thin and don't take impact too well. Then again, I suppose I should use my bat a bit more  ;)

Couple before and after pics of my new GN kindly made for me by Stuart.
2lb 6oz, mid middle, thin semi oval handle, it's a ripper as usual.

Loved these pads and gloves - some of the classiest I have ever seen.

These and the M&H original pads were pure class.

I do indeed. I use it on lms games and some t20 games. I love the bat.

The mmi3 bats are great fun, aren't they! All middle and power. Wouldn't want too many short and quick balls  :(
I still prefer a 'normal' bat when batting though.
