Best Consistent Bat Pressing
« on: April 28, 2016, 06:01:49 PM »

Hi Guys -

This is a pretty open discussion on which brand does the best consistent pressing.  My my opinion SS Ton and Newberry are most consistent.

Aldred and B3 as each bat is individually pressed as required. Newbery most consistent from the more established brands imo.

Found Aldred & Laver to be consistent in pressing as each bat pings nice regardless of the grade.

Agree  also as Hawk make bats to order they are individually pressed.

I can only speak of what I've seen lots of, and based on that, I think no one is as consistent as GM. B3 have been pretty consistent from the ones I've seen, H4L and BAS have been consistent from the ones I've seen too. SS can be a mixed bag, as can Sondhi and Kook. I rarely find off the shelf GN's which I like the pressing of, I have to say...

RPC
H4L

Although, everyone is going to just say their favoured brands so it's a little pointless but harmless fun :)

I'll only comment on what I've used and knocked in, and being personal experience some may disagree.

B3 bats are consistent, but their "ready press" isn't to everyone's liking as some people find them a bit hard.

I've had a few SS bats, some were pressed nice and stiff while a couple I'm not convinced had been near a press at all!

Matt at H4L presses his bats very nicely, and having seen the making process I know these each get individually pressed.

Gunn & Moore have upped their pressing game recently, firm and ping out the packet, lovely!

If you get a TK made bat then the pressing will be on point.

Can anyone point me at articles explaining how pressings differ and how the bat maker decides what's needed? Thanks

I think Paul Aldred does an excellent job explaining how he does it here

I had a mix experience with H4L. 2nd bat I got from H4L was very different than the first one (of course willow quality matters).  But so far I have 2 - SS TON, 2 - Newberry, 2- H4L and both SS and Newberry ping is very consistent.

Without doubt Salix or Newbery bats. Salix pressed individually and performace on every one if ever used and seen used has played very well. B3 certainly have got a lot better in last 2 years and would be close now but personally having used Salix bats in the main over the last 10 years the most consistant that iv come across.

In no particular order - Rob Pack, Salix, Aldred.
