It looks so much better than before, well done.
Isnt 303 Kashmir willow though?

Nope, 303 is the lowest grade of English Willow GM sell

In response to the suspect DSC bats.

If you WhatsApp onlinestockists and ask for pics of the Condor Flite/Elite hes fire some over, I've got some pics on my phone of another model and the stickers and font are completely different.

The only issue is that if you do prove it tone a fake, what will the seller do about it? Not much I imagine.

I suspect I would need to provide this particular gent with some pretty concrete facts for him to take any action, he's an older guy and it's his first online purchase so I think he'd be reluctant to take the seller to task about it. It's also been knocked and played in the nets so it would be a difficult return process. I didn't take any pictures of the edges so I can't recall if it had the stamped in DSC in the edge or not, that seems to be one of the constants that I've seen online.
There's a shop in Melbourne that stocks them I might drop past if I'm in that part of the world to have a look.

Great stuff. Some of these Australian GNs are beautifully grainy.

This one was cheap too, $199A! It's got the trademark medical tape handle and the big A stamped in the front of it too.
It's 2.10 dressed, goes ok but will get better with a bit more use.

Love AUS GNs!

Mueleman is by far the best retailer of AUS GNs out there. Great service!

No after pics yet, but reckon this might scrub up well once the bat cave is finished.

45 on eBay, no idea why its was a 250.

Good spot! I'd probably have bought it if I'd seen it. But then we would have bid against each other and it would have cost more. Show pics when done...

Very nice refurb. Can it be used in nets without breaking again?

I hope so mate! You never know how long it'll last but its solid enough now. As always I advised of this before doing the repair and the guy was happy to give it a go.

Teammate of mine did a good job on the toe of his M&H last week, cracked right through and up several inches front and back. Annoying on as the crack is still pretty well attached, so had to go through the never enjoyable step of ramming a screwdriver in there to open it up. Got it full of thinned down pva pretty successfully and bound it up tight. Will probably dowel it when this is dry, don't think the repair will last long otherwise.
