Some of the light bat issue with Aldreds, iirc, is that you ask for a 2.8, so he sends you a 2.11 because he knows what you want more than you do.....

I got what i asked for with him, i was already aware that he advertises the difference between feel and dead weight so i said 2.7 feel max 2.9 dead weight and worked perfectly. Love my bat from him and will definitely rebuy. However i did have that issue with M&H. Asked for a 2.8-9 and was sent a 2.11 1/2 which had 2.9 written on the shoulder.

If your after a butterfly from aldred the lighter clefts seems to fly out so your better off getting the ball rolling asap

I asked for a light butterfly the day the new willow arrived and it was all pre sold even though he told me to call back on the day it arrived. I guess you cant guarantee what willow you are sent

Could probably stretch to a grade 1. I know it's not about looks but not sure I'm keen on the butterfly willow, although I know it performs.

Send your old bat to Paul if you liked the handle hes great at replicating bats. Ask for him just to copy the handle and make the rest to whatever shape you like. If 2.11 warbird was too heavy might want to look for a 2.8-9 as warbirds do pick up very well with shorter blade and counter balance.

Thanks for the advice. Went with a Blank Bats in the B1 profile in the end, lovely bat.
