This was the kit I used this year together with some post-season thoughts. Most of the bats have featured on the forum already hence no photographs.
B3 Series DB1 2lb 14oz - used once first match of the season, very good indeed and went from ball one, sold it to a team mate purely because I had too many bats. Had featured on the forum when new
Gray-Nicolls Powerbow Strauss LE 2lb 12oz - a lovely bat used in earnest this season, was tempted in to sell it though. Had featured on the forum when new.
Millichamp & Hall Amplus profile 2lb 14oz (storm damaged) - two years old and still going strong (!), used mainly in nets.
Warsop Butterfly 2lb 12oz - one of the last "pure" Butterfly bats from Warsop (nowadays all bats can be graded as Butterfly with the sticker added), traditional profile with thinner edges and no concaving, does feel harder than my other bats, the ball certainly travels when middled. Less effective off-centre though as would be expected with this shape.
Gray-Nicolls Powerbow Generation X Extreme Players 2lb 14oz - on line gamble from SD, huge bat even for the weight and performance is very impressive indeed. Really pleased with this, has made me realise how G-N have gained their reputation. Was a bit sceptical given some of the willow grading examples on here.
Have mainly used Gray-Nicolls Oblivion E41 Test gloves and Powerbow Players pads from a couple of years ago. Alternatively, M&H Alpha. Good kit.
Sold my Ton Gladiator Elite gloves early in the season, replaced with G-N Legend. The Ton gloves were I thought at the time very good but once softened up a bit, the Legends are a joy to use and superior imo (and fit me better).
I acquired some matching Legend pads, these are quite narrow which I may get used to but haven't had match use yet. Continuing with Salix Pod pads which are more generous in size and I really like them, wearing well too.
Asics ODI for most of the season, not sure I can notice any difference from the Advance but as I got a good deal this is not material, I am very happy with them, used for batting, bowling, WK, fielding and a spot of bowling too.
