Wow. Time to try Adidas pads - I have never tried them but would definitely like to try them for once to see how they are.
Well reasonable to say they aren't too dissimilar (identical) to the top of the range ss pads and am sure you have tried them!

I grabbed some Adidas pads when the top ones were on sale for bargain 30!!
I sold them on for the same price as I got the large mans and they were a fraction too long for me! The guy I sold them to iss 6'5 so ideal for him!
If they had of been standard mens size I think I would have kept them as they were light, protective and comfortable!

It's a fabulous shap @jayralh  - looks a biggun, what does it weigh?
Just for you @FattusCattus.
I got tennis elbow and can't use heavy bats but this bat feels so light or let's say well balanced that I am happy to use all day long.
That weight is with one grip plus scuff sheet.

So all people hooked on weight should feel the bat rather than buying by dead weight. Well that's what I learnt.

That makes me say that aren't all top models of other brands similar to each other?

Even if SS made Adidas pads, it does not mean they are the same as detailed design could be still be given by Adidas to SS instead of saying "make me your SS pads and put my adidas sticker on it" and design can make the difference between what works or not for someone.

Mine is virtually the same as last year.
Lots of adidas stuff.
Plus Keeley and a Blank bat.
A masuri lid, SG thigh pads, shock dr box and an SG duffle.




Simple, significantly slimmed down. But I couldn't be happier with the kit.

Is that a heavy tennis ball used by Indian cricketers?

Sadly not, it is a flat tennis ball as chewed by Toska my wife's dog...

not sure this lot will win any prizes for looks, age and condition!!! but happy as all of this didn't cost me 100 (and 60 of that was on the duffle bag and the Grove gloves!!)
bats:
left - old BDM rescued from the bin at my club and repaired - still needs a bit of work, but was in a mess when i found it!
right - broken unknown make with huge chunk of the bottom missing - glued and fixed
Gloves:
old pair of GN E41s off eBay secondhand
grove limited editions i brought from Greg Chappell in Melbourne in 2013
gm keeping gloves - secondhand off ebay
Pads:
gm purist originals - secondhand off ebay
unbranded keeping pads - another rescue from the bin at my club!
old P1s - secondhand off ebay

thought i'd splash out on a new bag as i will be walking to cricket from now on - 19 for GN Duffle from Sports-bay-clearance on ebay - bargain

How is duffle bag @dt-second-hand-cricket . I am tempted to buy similar. Has it got separate external bat pockets and how many. Has it got separate shoe pocket?

the duffle is good from my first impressions @jayralh - only got it this week, but with full kit in it is one the most comfortable i have used (like a proper hiking rucksack) - there is one external bat pocket (but with the way the double zips work you could easily put a bat in the main section and let the handle stick out the top)
there is no shoe section unfortunately - shame as it is big enough to include one without an issue

Duffle is a bargain and super comfortable agreed. More then big enough for full kit, shower stuff, 2x shoes, 3x gloves etc but not too large so it still fits on the train or doesn't annoy people you are sharing a lift with :D

Both bats look grainy @dt-second-hand-cricket, youve done well there!
