New Bat Needed
« on: June 27, 2018, 01:33:03 AM »

Hi Im looking for a new bat, Im not bothered about big brands as I appreciate most only a select few of the big name brands make their own stuff, Im also not bothered if the bat is made in the UK or abroad.

I dont really like the idea of buying a bat without first picking it up or looking at it properly but if not Im confined to buying from one of my local retailers.

Id ideally like to spend 150 - 200 on a grade 1 or 2

Any ideas or advice much appreciated

Thanks

U could get in touch with itsjustcricket or eclipse allsport. If you're unable to visit them personally they provide every little detail about their bats. IJC also have a besoke video option where they do a video on specific products in detail upon request. Its like ur actually there picking the bats. You're likely to find good value for money bats too. If not, then your local retailer is ur best option. For 150-200 ur unlikely to find a grade 1 bat. U could look at some GM signatures or 707s

All of the sponsors can help you out in that price range! Look in the brands/shops section find one you like the look of and contact them.

Where are you based? There's plenty of great retailers on here so one may be local to you.

Or, just a thought, he could speak to one of the many forum sponsor retailers that do a bloody good job... rather than a store that imports bats made for the Indian market and sells them from a loft #SupportTheForum

Whilst I appreciate you want to hold the bat first, if you did want something custom made to specs then Id be able to make something up within budget.

Sorry, but what is wrong with selling from a loft? Everyone starts somewhere....

I'm slightly concerned it took me about 10 minutes to fully understand that joke....
