You are probably the youngest guy i know on this forum ! Do post some pictures of Willowstix. Heard so many good things about this brand ....
When I get a chance I will take some photos and post them. My three Willostix adult bats are all still in use and going strong even though one of them is nearly five years old and had a lot of batting time in it. My newest Spitfire has an awesome pick up and responds well off the mallet so I'm looking forward to using it. I was given an Anaconda by a mate when I was 15 and it was way too heavy for me to play games with but it was a nice slogging bat that I used in the nets a lot and it also helped me get my hands up to play the hook and pull which I had previously struggled with.

Honestly when it comes down to Willostix they have had an unnecessary bad reputation for a while but from someone that has used them for six years the kit it top notch and the prices are decent as well. If you give Andy a call he will sort you out with what you need. If you are able to get to Kent Cricket Direct near Tunbridge Wells then it may be worth a visit to see all the bats for yourself  :)

Well, it's hardly a 'collection' - more of a group, really. But I'm fussy and don't jump on every bat that's going cheap.
Ideally, I'd like one nice-looking bat from brands I like. As you see, I've a way to go. But therein lies the fun!

They're all around 2.9/2.10  and have counterbalanced handles, except the Mjolnir, which is a wand at just under 2.8 and doesn't need a counterbalance.
From left to right:

B3 Crown custom (match bat)
B3 wet weather/net bat (copy of match bat)
GM Aura Original (new and unused)
Woodstock Tour de Force XL Players LE
Newbery Mjolnir SPS ( my old match bat, recently refurbed in Cadbury livery)

@FattusCattus is the grip on the Affinity Sport above the colour you are after?

I've got one on my Voodoo stickered Warner replica. Maybe Tom or Marcus could help you get one?

Nice collection @langer17!!!
