Lovely bat Ed, top work!


What do you think of the Serbian willow?

Just to add my two cents, the Serbian willow bat that I had as a bit of a tester has now become my match bat... honestly the performance is as good, if not better, than anything I've had previously. Highly recommended from a personal standpoint.

Really like the shape of the handle. Almost rectangular by the look of it.

Cheers, I'm a big believer in a solid handle/shoulders being a really important part of the bat so I try and take out as little as possible around there when blending the shoulders in to the handle - right at the bottom it's quite square sided where it follows the shoulders, then smooths into a nice traditional oval for the main section of the handle.

Thanks for sharing this. Even though Serbian willow is great, it is not a cost effective substitute for English willow as prices are not much different. True?

They're only slightly cheaper once the importing costs are taken into account, but it's more a case of the supply being abundant compared to EW. It's no secret that EW is in vast demand, which isn't currently being met, so hopefully the Serbian Willow can help with the shortage (plus the trees are much older meaning the grain lovers amongst us should be pleased!)
