Order accepted and paid for.  Getting the retro Laver & Wood stickers in maroon (club colour), 2.9 a cm longer and knocked.   No eta. They posted another video on facebook btw on the profile. I agree with @Buzz i love the Jullian Millichamp shape. Good to see classic shapes continue.

Our skipper uses a laver performance grade.

Here's his winter net video

Thats going like a rocket!

I ordered for me and a teammate yesterday. Eta 3 weeks to US.

I asked him if they could do a slight bow and he said bow reduces the size of the sweet spot. Went for a forward sent handle instead.

That's very interesting, did he elaborate as to how this happens? Is it different for each profile?

The argument is that if you PRESS in the bow, the middle is harder, and therefore less responsive.

$357 including a extra $20 for stickers. Ant chucked in knocking if i placed the order immediately.

It could be a sign! hope it goes like a .357 Magnum. I'm feeling lucky...punk.

The order of the grades is basically correct, but special reserve is grade 2. Signature is grade 1+ whatever that is, PB and reserve both grade one, and legend is grade 3. Butterfly is priced the same as the legend so considered the same level apart from select butterfly which is a good bit more, and pricey for butterfly.
Pretty certain they offer 2 special reserve grades: one is Grade 2, the other is entry-level Grade 1

Andy said that? That is interesting!

A "pressed" bow leads to uneven press leaving part of the bat soft pressed and the bowed area _harder_ pressed compared to the softer pressed parts of the bat. Does that affect performance? In my opinion it doesn't. You can use a mallet on softer areas to harden them up. The harder pressed (bowed) part will ping nicely. No issue there, atleast not with bats I have and I always specify a BIG BOW in my bats.

GN Warner Replica bat has a massive bow. Mine is handmade by Stuart Krantzbuhler. It has _no_ soft areas on the bat and goes like a rocket. Also, my Aldred has a nice bow and no soft areas.

I believe the reason bat makers don't want to bow bats is because it is a labor intensive process, performance excuse is just nonsense!

Regarding bows, I would let the bat maker do what he is comfortable with. Generally in most things pushing people to do things against the grain whether right or wrong doesn't produce the best results.

^ A paying customer should be able to get what he/she wants since they are ones using the product and have _some_ idea of how/why they use it.

Point of having a custom made bat is to get what you pay for and want.

It isn't a question of that in my opinion, what I am saying is that if someone doesn't like putting in a bow as an example, either accept his advise as to what he is best at making, or find someone that does like to work in that way (putting in bows), as generally if people do not like doing something and are pushed into doing it the results suffer.

Yes, I agree. You can't force a bat maker to do something they are not able to do.
