Yes I would do that. I have some nets coming up next Thursday and a couple of weeks later. Pm me and I'll give my address. It's near Cambridge.

Great idea this, small sample obviously but always been intrigued as to how much diff it makes, especially as thats how I pick a lot of the bats I buy haha

If you dont have much uptake Id be up for giving it a go certainly - midlands based just outside Stratford upon Avon

You'll not be surprised to know I couldn't be more keen for forum amateur science experiments! Send them over to the west country, I'll be netting every week from mid-jan onwards. Really interested to see how this goes a fully, particularly to see how results match up to the received wisdom of narrow grains going better early. Great work Justin.

Might be able to persuade @blindowl to participate too as we will likely be at the same nets.
Anyone else near Cambridge to save on a lot of Hermes parcel fees?

My idea is that the bats be passed around between interested Forum members, so that anyone who wants to have a go with them, can do.

Great idea!

I need to bind the handles and put grips on, then both bats will end up around 2lb 11oz - 2lb 12oz.

Have you thought about 1/3 or 1/4 twine and rest medical tape?

I have tried tape in the past, but to be honest I prefer the consistency of traditional binding, and the added structure which stiffens the handle a little bit I think. For this experiment, I'm attempting to create two bats that are as identical as possible, so I reckon full binding is the way forward this time.

Actually I'm convinced that grains don't dictate the quality of the bat but willow and the pressing make the bat.

@AJ2014 is it just the angle of the picture, or is it noticeably narrower at the top than the bottom?

The scuff sheet and binding round the toe look exactly the same as as some Mallick Tigers and Dragons that were on Ebay last year. Someone must have been selling a batch of bats like this.
