Which would you choose and why?
« on: September 06, 2018, 04:17:39 PM »

B3 have been great since my new bat this season broke, and sent me a choice of two clefts to choose from to make my new one. I'm interested to know which one people would choose and why to see if opinions line up with my own!

Theyre both stunners, one on the left for me as Im not a huge fan of millions of grains or heartwood, but Id be happy with either.

Left, because I prefer a look of <50% heartwood

Heartwood and grains for early trampolining. Right one!

I'd be tempted by right but then choose left, I reckon. Or I'd ask the maker to choose whichever they thought would be best.

I'll throw it out there that when I showed my mother she thought the one on the right as it looked prettier.

Took me a good couple of hours to make my choice, asked about five different people for opinions.

Whichever is lighter in weight, I am guessing that will be the one with less heartwood portion.

One on the left
And I'd ask for the handle to be put in the bottom so the heartwood would be on the right handers inside edge (but that's just me)

One on the left personally, one on the right is just tad too much heartwood. How did you get in touch with them mate and how much is it costing you if you dont mind me asking

Just out curiosity why is it preferable to have it on the outside edge?
