Need help........ Viking Cricket or Kippax
« on: May 13, 2018, 09:39:18 AM »

Hi all this is my first ever post, I am looking for a new blade and am torn between Kippax and Viking.  Both have very nice looking bats, just thought perhaps some good advice on here may assist my decision???

Both have great bats, if you live in or near Yorkshire why not arrange to visit. Having the chance to pick up a few, and talk to the batmakers may help you make up your mind.

Also worth looking at Jedi, Bear and the All Rounder bats if you like those two companies and see what TCB have to in stock (all in the same part of the world).

Do you prioritise value, looks, performance? That will narrow it down a bit. Kippax made bats are also a touch shorter than a full SH blade length which might also play in to the decision making and only the Jedi made bats will give you custom options AFAIK

My Jedi is excellent. Great value too. TCB are brilliant to deal with so if you want a Jedi, I think they make Viking too, I would go through The Cricket Boutique.

How about a trip to Anglesey, go to see the guys at Helygen Cricket Bats? Keep it Welsh boyo!
