Improvements in bat making techniques
« on: July 06, 2018, 06:45:13 AM »

Inspired by Hoovers comments in the bat size restrictions thread about improved techniques being the biggest factor in bat response improvements I thought it might be fun to speculate on what manufacturers might be trying with their bats these days (not specifically Bradbury) or what they maybe could try.

I always read stuff about improved pressing techniques but am a little sceptical of the benefits of a 3 stage press etc, but my knowledge of the details of pressing is pretty thin.

@Hoover, if you'd be prepared to share the differences in technique and results and why the change between pro and standard bats a very interesting read!
I dont know how other makers derive there techniques but we use a lot of trial and error in our making. We actually call our sponsored players lab rats ! Not trying to be clever at all but we wont share our IP on this.
They won't catch us this time! Not this time! They haven't spotted us! No, they're all snoring in their bunks! Or, you know what? They're drinking at the bar, celebrating our sinking! Not yet, my friends. Not yet!

A good sprinkle of fairy dust always improves a bat.
