Just seeing , with a bit of DIY work , whether I can turn their slightly oval handle into a very oval one. Most brands dont have handles big enough from front to back if you get my meaning, but puma may .

Just bought a handle and insert and shape it.

You don't really need binding, just done kenso tape or what ever it is.

GM may be a good bet if you want something with a big handle to begin with

Probably only a very old Millichamp made Puma. Possibly some UK made Rob Pack Pumas, but I don't recall those having extreme oval handles. 

I don't think anything in the last few year will do the trick, Sondhi made with at best semi oval handles as far as i've seen.

Ive got an SS Ton Reserve Edition, and the bottom of the handle is remarkably ovalified.

Feel free to drop me a pm or let me know what measurements you are aiming for. All my handles are custom turned to allow for any shape really. A big oval wont be an issue

On this - a really quick question. I have a SG that's opened up quite well. But that has a round handle.

Is there a possibility that this could be converted to a semi-oval? Some DIY tricks using tape, etc etc.

Could someone point me to a DIY thread on this if it's possible at all?

Many thanks!

I have one Indian made bat with semi oval handle. Not knackered but used if you willing to take it.
