The bat in the 1st pic looks like a Grade 4 willow.. so its not always about number of grains & Pro grade with 18+ grains. Must be an ultra low density cleft.

I may be biased but looks a normal bat too me not overly big either but the player makes the bat I guess.

I maybe purely guessing but edge around 36-38mm spine no bigger than 55-60mm..

Love the shape beautiful profile.

He can just use it better than all of us.

The knots and the uneven grains don't mean that bat lacks performance. When I was looking at this picture, I thought about my top match bat which has similar marks on the face and it is the best bat (performance wise) I own (and I have bunch of decent bats). His criterion for bats is probably performance over looks.

Looks like that repair kit from his video gets a lot of use! He clearly repairs any damage as soon as it appears

It is probably his gun bat and he can't risk playing without it. Such bats are so hard to find.

That grip!

Must be a bad omen, start promisingly before the wheels come off spectacularly...

My brain must be playing tricks but it seems like it is getting wider towards the toe?

It's one of those lesser-spotted bats on here - one that actually gets used for more than a few nets before being discarded!

Bat appearance/looks is the most overrated aspect of the whole thing IMHO. I wonder how many people have passed up on gun bats because they weren't blemish free or had 15 grains running ruler straight.

Top quality player too - a shame he's getting on a bit as I've only just come round to appreciating his talent. Seems like a proper badger too!
