Quick update - bat hasn't picked up anymore weight as of yet....James has said that it should lose weight, can't see that happening.

It is knocked in and I've applied a fibre scuff and ripple grip. Sounds an absolute gun now it's knocked in.

 good luck with the bat :) the change in sound is the most satisfying part after knocking in the bat. of course, hitting a ball out of the park will rank much higher :)

Quick bat update.

James has organised a courier to collect the bat for its weight loss and hopefully I'll be happy with the bat when it's returned. Just hope taking off 1.5oz doesn't turn it into a toothpick!

Those guys are marketing this as a 2lb 8 bat! Clearly it's 2lb 9.5 as per your message.

I'm guessing the bat weight was reduced and they decided on making a new bat as it was not to my original specs

I had a similar problem with a L&W Ultra, I ordered a 2.7 and received a 2.9.  L&W were fantastic, offered me two or three options. In the end I kept the original bat (which I sold on here) and had a replacement at cost price (which I sold on here).  I thought there service was so good I purchased another at the beginning of last season, which at only 2.7 has a massive middle.

***UPDATE***

Received my new replacement bat today and have got to say it's a stunner!

I'm very happy with it and the service offered by James and Anth.

Specs are as follows

2.7.8oz
37.5mm edge
63mm spine
18mm shoulder
21.5mm toe











Taps up pretty well, a little bit better than the overweight bat. 

The MEGA stickers will be coming off ASAP - it's not a MEGA shape so not sure why they are on there.

The chevron grip will be coming off and replaced with a vee grip so finished weight will be around 2.8.5oz after grip and antiscuff.

I very much doubt this will be leaving my hands. I am a happy bunny, it was well worth the wait

The performance on this bat feels 10 times better than the original
