Thickness and shape for me mainly. On the stiffness, a floppy handle may flatter you into feeling like you are middling everything but I prefer the stiffer end of the spectrum and you can always break a stiff handle in and give it a good bend and hit a load of balls but you can't stiffen up a floppy handle an appreciable amount. That preference points me towards GM/ B3/ Aldred over pretty much anything else (maybe CF in the future)

I don't necessarily agree with everything Aldred says but I do agree with his handle philosophy

Prior to forum discovery (all bats I had owned in my first 8 years of cricket, including a Harrow):
GN (2)
Slazenger
Total = 3

Since the forum:
L&W (4)
Affinity (3)
B3 (3)
GN (2)
Ayrtek (2)
Kookaburra (2)
Helios (Newbery technically)
Aldred
H4L
GM
Blenheim
Talisman
Slazenger
Impala
SS
TON
Total = 26

I still have all of the bats I had prior to the forum due to nostalgic reasons (First EW and first 50 bat). Since the forum I have sold all bar the 7 I currently have. I'm selling 2 of them but I bought 2 in the last two days, so it'll come down to 5.

My list at present:
Kookaburra x 12 (I think)
Gray Nicolls x 1
Gunn and Moore x 2
Newbury x 1
MSR x 1
Hunts County x 2
Ace x 2 (not sure where they are made)
B3 x 3
JP Gavan x 1 (currently on its way)
Puma x 1
Icon x 1 (wish I hadn't sold it!)
Slazenger x 1 (shared with my brother)

Wishlist at present:
Kingsport Deadly (will likely be bought before I leave Aus)
Grove
TNF
Coopers
McVicars

Issue with wish list is that I am also having to save up for a new tablet- mine got killed by a power surge a few weeks ago and SA Power haven't compensated us yet.
