New bat
« on: December 06, 2018, 02:13:56 PM »

So it all started when I saw this image of the new TKC shape and fancied a new bat so sent a few messages to Rich aka @Butterfingerz about this bat and weights etc



What with my birthday coming up I thought Id treat myself and asked for some pics of superlight clefts, these were the selection





I went for this one


 
A 343 crown- one of if not the lightest crown theyve done

A decided against the TKC and went  for a custom

After being Cncd



Still a fair bit of work to do on these so called machined bats eh

I sent my match bat along as I want it shaped the same



Updates to come as still being made but pretty excited about this beast

The bat will be 2'8.5 when finished, it was a real squeeze to get this so big from the pressed left. And.....its a GUN!

Looking good. That will test the bat gauge! I was very pleased with the choice of shapes etc I received from B3 back in October. Looking forward to seeing finished pictures.

Boo. You spoiled the surprise! Could have left him hanging in wonder for an anxious few days :D

That is going to be one huge beastie!

Lovely profile. Looks a beast

I assume the 1st 2 Clefts are not crown or are they due to volume?

First 2 clefts pro grade ie crown density without the looks

4 clefts in other pic are crown

You have a good eye for detail Robert 540- Same as my match bat that I thought was a standard length....shows what I know about bats eh 😊
