Custom x2 - First 'Proper' Bat
« on: February 14, 2018, 09:50:49 PM »

Hi all!

After making a thread on here wanting a 'proper' bat, i was put in contact with with John @ Red Ink who i entrusted to make my first bat that wasn't a 50 bargain by from the internet.

I asked John to try and copy my mates Woodstock Tour De Force which i've absolutely loved using at Uni, with a slightly thinner handle to ease up on my child-sized hands. Given that all i could give John to go off was a link to the bat online, he's managed to copy it perfectly, to the point that the pickup feels exactly the same.

It weighs 2'8 with a scuff sheet but picks up similarly to my 2'5 Kookaburra. I'm having a net on the bowling machine with it tomorrow afternoon and if it's ready i will give it a run out at uni nets in the evening, early indications are it taps up well!

Thank you to John for putting up with some of my stupid questions along the way!

Anyway, for now i'll leave you with the photos!

As has been said love the branding, my favourite of 2018 so far that Ive seen well done John loved my Red ink and the lad who owns it now has it tapped and repaired so much (3 seasons old now) but wont replace it as he loves it so much
