its a custom made bat, The bat was made to how I wanted it. Alex asked if I wanted it to go through a bat guage, and the answer was no. Ironically I cant even get the shoulders through the guage. If I wanted it to be lighter then I would of have to sacrificed the spine height and volume in the area I wanted the most volume.
As in the bat is too wide, or has shoulders bigger than 47mm?

Might just be to old to turn pro 😂.

Thats my biggest regret, not striking a deal for the broken cleft. Hopefully its still available. Alex let me know 🤞🤞

School boy error mate, first thing I said to you 😜

Tedious day in office today so cheered myself up by watched the YouTube vid. Great to see the process and Alex doing his thing, those blades must be seriously sharp.

Also very interesting to hear the comments on the trend amongst Pros for thin handles, wonder if that is also a reason why SK uses tape rather than bind, or if that is purely just weight saving?

@Six Sixes Cricket  how does this one feel compared against your other bats, especially the big (SK?) Warner you have?

@Chalkie
Other current trend is the square toe as well.

Havent used the sk Warner bat, but comparing by mallet/ball response between the two, this is better. Im definitely looking forward to the season starting

Great video - thanks for sharing.

Interesting to hear him say that the bat started out with a flat blade, and the bow was pressed in.  It looks like there's about a 10mm bow, and that would mean a lot more pressing on the meat vs very little on the shoulders and toe!  Very different to GM, who according to their videos, machine the bow, then press it all the same.
