Looking lovely Ed!

Did you use any of the tools you had off me yet?

Also did you see the youtube video I made a while back - made a cordless drill-powered binding lathe with some wood, pillow bearings and threaded rod.

Yeah they were dead useful for doing the shoulders on this, thanks mate - much better than just relying on a rasp like I did for the previous bat! Didn't see the video, can you post a link? Sounds like the kind of thing I'm considering knocking up so could be quite useful!

Other projects have got in the way lately but I've got round to getting bat #002 finished, very pleased with this one. My take on the very popular Joe Root type slight duckbill shape, with a rounded spine as I've always liked them but never owned one myself. Serbian G1 cleft with all the grains you could wish for, 2lb11 and picks up really nicely - if you ask me anyway! I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking:

Very nicely done!

What do you think of the Serbian willow?

How's the bat's ping?

Awesome job again Ed, really well done. The profile is fantastic, I'd best get over your way for some lessons. Get busy knocking it in, have a go with it this weekend!  :)

It's just the same as normal willow to be honest! The two I've had have been quite dry though so a little harder to work with, but as a finished product I doubt many people could spot the difference. Will be interested to see how this one plays - high hopes as tapping it up is very good.

Lovely bat Ed, top work!

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.
