My Second bat, The B20 BEAST!
« on: May 30, 2016, 10:13:55 PM »

Okay my second review. Will try to make this one shorter.

After buying the B1 I just had to get myself a more aggressive bat and I was already in love with Blank Bats. I really liked the new look B20 and was curious. I had messaged Tai and I have to say I have never talked to a more patient and friendly person. I think only Tai can tell you how annoying I must have been. I had first asked him for a Pro bat, then a B1, then a B2 and then finally a B20 grade 3 bat. Even after all of those pictures and replies I couldn't decide and in the end I asked Tai for one last request. I wanted to treat myself and decided I wanted the G1 B20 bat. Thankfully Tai was patient and quick with his response. He showed me 3 bats to choose from, all of which he said PINGED! I had to go with the one I liked the look of the most. It was stickered up and arrived within 3 days of payment. The bat came in a bubble wrapped parcel and was happy that the bat came dent free. It was already fitted with a scuff sheet which was surprising but I'm not complaining.

The bat itself was a beast. The bat weighed 2.13.5 but it honestly picked up around 2.12 or less. I am honestly shocked by the pick up more than anything. I espeically love the sloped shoulders that seem to help the weight and pick up. I just don't know how they did it. The bat looks a beauty but the best part is the performance. I haven't even knocked the bat in and it just flies. I seriously cannot wait to knock it in and have some real fun with this bat. Okay pictures speak a thousand words so here you go.

P.S. I do have to say for anyone deciding on a bat, you have to try Blank bats. If not for anything else, their service is first class and I am more than happy to buy from them in the future. Special thank you to Tai. He managed to deal with the pickiest customer ever!

Bat Length - SH
Grains - 14 straight grains
Spine Height - 64 mm
Edge size - 47 mm
Toe size - 22 mm

The pictures to enjoy

Yeah nothing too extreme. Like I said in another post, it's nothing like my CA. I really do love the shape.

@rockymoghal any chance of some profile comparison pics of the 2 bats?

You do need pads and gloves to finish the set next 😉
