Author Topic: What one piece of kit do you wish you could still get your hands on?  (Read 681 times)

If some of you are like me you'll spend hours looking through eBay for that diamond in the rough, or always looking for that piece of kit you used once and no longer own.

So... what is that one thing you'd love to own that you either once did or regret never having?

A Screaming Cat bat (I've never owned a JM bat with his own stickers)

An original Woodworm Torch

Easton air management batting pads , they were awesome . Also , i never owned a screaming cat , wish i had .
A lot of people will probably love to find classic , adjustable grille masuri lids .
I have 3 xp80s but wish they would still be made because I'd get more of them . In fact , any oversize cleft bat must be rare and cherished in these post-mcc-bat-regulations days......so you could add m&h distinction (?) , gn kabooms , older kippaz colossus , etc etc .

Grey Nicolls optimum megastrike bat - had one when i was ~11, from coach/county player. He used it batting against Wasim Akram, which was pretty cool.
Surprised it wasn't too heavy for me looking back.

A good quality Open Championship bat with the David Gower stickers on.

The original orange and silver Puma Ballistic 5000 kit, I never had any of the softs or the bat but loved the keeping stuff! That whole range is just iconic to me.

Robertsbridge made Dynadrive LE.

http://custombats.co.uk/cbforum/index.php?topic=20821.0

And more specifically, this one:





What a beautiful lady, the guy who ordered this is going to be chuffed! Can't believe she weighs 2'8.5



The edge comparison is done with an A61 1000, which is a big bat in its own right, but its dwarfed by the Dynadrive.



I'm kind of gutted that i got a standard Dynadrive for myself now...


I was sorely tempted to tell the customer this bat had been lost in transit when it arrived....

Given the cost of a Robertsbridge bat these days I'm not sure i'll be getting one anytime soon, wish I had back then, just over 300 seems an absolute steal in the current climate.

He owned one, can't recall if it was this one exactly. We did quite a few over a 2 or 3 year period, probably 20+ in the end.

I did mate. Via @Chad I think I ended up selling it for somewhere near to the new price in the end!

Is that the one that had a couple of handles fitted - I had that one for a while.

Could have been mate it had a rehandle when i had it. Barely used it. Couldn't quite come to terms with the size of it compared to it's weight
