Would love to see a pic too. That Barringtons link looks like a different profile

Have two Halestorms, the 2.14 one picks up much nicer for the weight than my 2.11. Could be a mixture of handle thickness etc. I suspect the Pro Performances do indeed feel nicer due to the slightly shorter length. Kind of makes me wish I didn't dismiss it straight away due to the shorter set up! (I am only 5ft8, so would have been fine)

I think I watched an IJC video where they mentioned the Kronus doesn't pick up nearly as well as the Halestorm did... Do you tend to use heavy bats? I'd recommend that you go and check out some examples in a cricket store if possible!

@Seniorplayer do you mind sharing where you sourced your 2 in 2lb6 from?

From memory Vitas and Uzi had a couple of "light" ones in 2lb9/2lb10 but they were like rocking horse poo. Getting 2 in an even lighter weight is unreal luck :)

I have a Halestorm (Predator, not Kronus) that is 2lb 9.5 and is bloody lovely! Pick up and performance are top notch and would recommend.

The xxx11 range from meulemans are stunning got three on order for guys on this forum I think @Northern monkey @petehosk will agree stunning bats and would have change as well from what a uk hailstorm would cost you thats with custom charges as well
Do you buy direct from Meulemans or get someone over in Aus to buy for you then they ship?

I'm just worried about it getting dinged up while being shipped here .

Yes direct if I had known you wanted one could of added to the order I have put in for three xxx11 for members of this forum all going in the same box and they said they will put the value of just one bat so hopefully we dont get stung for three bats they are extremely good value for money as well and all guaranteed to be made by Stuart Kranzbuhler

A mixture of limited edition and players grade bats not a lot of difference between the grades to be honest with you all seem to ping well and be massive for the weight always worth sending them a message as always really helpful

A couple of people have mentioned about the shorter blade on the GN PP and that not being tall themselves means it shouldnt be a problem. Does this mean that if you are taller (Im 62) the PP would be harder to get on with?

Any taller guys on here got a shorter blade, longer handle set up they use regularly and can comment on this?

I use a Kudos or Warbird from time to time and actually seem to get on as well (sometimes better) than SH or slightly longer blade!!

Cheers mate, I forgot the warbird was that style. Used Bruces one a while back and it was great so think I will try this set up again.

Warbirds are great, you really don't notice the difference and get a bit more wood for your buck.
