And I would agree that it isn't one of his better contribution.  Recently I have seen him trying to argue concaving takes woodnaway from the hitting zone but then says that the profile of the bat is for aesthetics and makes no difference to the performance

I think I can guess which batmaker you mean... not one of his better theories. In any case companies offering consumers plenty of different choices is hardly a bad thing, not everyone likes their bats the same after all.

Fully on board with that, cheap thin handles are rubbish. "Profile makes no difference... which one of our seven different options would you like?" though...

@edge I wasn't disputing the theories mentioned, more asking if we were thinking of the same person.

You are correct with the assumption of who it is

It does confuse me though .

I personally do think a full profile makes a big difference km the edge rebound and the sweet spot simply from seeing the tendulkar profile and first hand experience

Secondly saying the profile makes no difference and a bat does not have a low middle or a high middle .

I respect him because it seems his customers are very happy but I do wonder sometimes.

Not trying to criticise but just wondered others opinions .

To me there's no doubt if there's more wood in a certain area, if prepared right and pressed right it may well perform better

I did notice one thing though it was argued pro s are able to have bats with massive wood in that bat at lower weight because the width of the bat is 4 inches as opposed to standard width


Is that quite common ?

They get the pick of the clefts and don't mind a huge bur light bat even if it will snap after a few hundred runs.  The average club player wouldn't pay top price for a bat no matter how good if it would only last for a short period of time

The argument was to the public though the pros bats are often light with lots of wood because they are smaller width wise

I can see why a pro may use a bat only 4 inch with sacrificing that little extra width but news to me

I have only seen a couple that were narrower than the regulations by a visible margin and they have been bays that have been refurbed a number of times and so had lost noticeable width through sanding. The bat he measured for his video was one in for refurb not a new one going out that a pro had requested at that width
