« on: January 22, 2018, 11:50:56 AM »

Saw these videos on YouTube by chance, quite an interesting albeit short look at some of the bat making factories in India.

Think the light blue Gray Nics was an Greg Chappell cricket centre exclusive model called the Momentum...
There were also orange predator stickers though and orange Powerbow Gen X Stickers from about 3 years ago that were green

Caught one of these today on YouTube after it was recommended on the side bar. Good videos - would love to see longer, uncut, versions.

Interesting to see Kippax handles at 43 seconds and a Scoop being cut out at 51 seconds.

If anything it just proves the skill of the batmakers even more, no need for fancy machinery!
