@langer17 your kit looks ace, i am very jealous of those bats. The Aldred and Affinitys go well?

Id love a coffin as well. I think that is what 8 am most jealous of.

The aldred is easily one of the best pressed bats I've ever had with the Affinity carbine is just behind it. I haven't used The voodoo and persona but they tap up well, they just require knocking and playing in.

The newbery (formerly Helios Atlas) has been the best bat I've had. Everything about it is just perfect to me (handle size and shape, balance). Feels perfect in the hands so that is why I bought the 2 Ayrteks as eventual replacements for it, as they just felt right in the hands...... and a nice discount didn't hurt haha.

The coffin was shipped over to Aus, then I took with me over to the UK and then brought it back to Aus again, so it is well traveled haha.

My 2019 kit is almost all in this previous post/review.

http://custombats.co.uk/cbforum/index.php?topic=45094.0

Besides the ACE kit, the bits I have are as follows:

Spikes- Nike Lunar Dominate from 3/4 years ago, Asics Gel (turquiose/yellow from a couple of years back), NB CK4030 blue and yellow. I'm considering a pair of Adidas or getting some trainers spiked up.

Lids- Shrey Masterclass Air Ti, with an Albion ultimate 98 Ti/elite pro Ti as backup. Green elite Pro Ti for Frogs fixtures.

Bats- my B3 as reviewed at the end of season. I did sticker it up as an ACE but I did a rubbish job of it so will get it refurbed when I'm back home and proper stickers back on it. I've got a JP Gavan featherblade on the way, and I'm looking at a Kingsport Deadly, or a couple of other Aussie sticks. Also at home (so no pics atm) are my impulse (with loads of glue holding it together), Newbery Quantum LE in ssh, my GM Flare, Ice Sub Zero (repaired and refurbed end of season). I think that's the lot at the moment.

Bag- as mentioned in my ACE review above, I was disappointed that they don't have a standard duffle. For training I will be using my Legget and Coe duffle, and I got an Adidas black duffle in the all rounder black Friday offer for 20 quid.


So a couple of changes from this. Got a few sets of stickers from Ace so the B3 is again stickered as an Ace plus a few spare sets for my sticker less weapons at home. I also picked up a couple of pairs of Ace Vice gloves in their 30% off new year sale, so pics of bat and gloves will follow!

Once I've got a tablet again I will post the pictures properly rather than the links. Been a couple of months since mine got cooked by a power surge and still no compensation.

My kit for 2019:

Bag - Woodstock Pro Stand Bag
Pads - Blank pads found on ebay, they seem to be blank Newbery SPS although happy to be corrected.
Thigh pads - Custom Stretton Fox set of inner and outer.
Gloves - Woodstock Platinum White gloves, I am looking to pick up another couple of pairs of these before the season starts proper.
Helmet - Shrey Air Masterclass 2.0 Steel
Box - Ayrtek
Trainers - Spiked up Nike trainers I got on a black friday deal
Bats - 2 Woodstock Classic Players LE both 2.11 fully gripped and scuffed. The Woodstock Festival is a refurbed and restickered SF Max Impact, I wanted to try some new stickers and I think the Festival ones look amazing.
Reviews for the Classic LE and SF can be found here:

Also included are a bag of old balls and my Baseball Mitt for catching practice before games.

Pads were from a seller called aft4b on ebay, I believe he has some relation to Phantom Cricket? He has some other blank stuff knocking around atm I think.
The trainers are Nike Structure 21, got them for around 50 on black friday but I think they're around the 100 mark usually. Hope that answers everything  :)

So i thought as the Missus is on her way to the Boyzone concert i would check my bats out of the cupboard.



Churchy Bat
Handmade by myself.
SSH
2lbs 9 5/8
35mm Edge
60mm Spine
Not used this one yet, thinking it could get some net action.



Jedi Bat
Custom Job from James.
SSH
2lbs 6 7/8
36mm Edge
59mm Spine
Got this at the beginning of last season, never got around to using it. Will use it against the bowling machine and go from there. Definitely a keeper, pickup is super lush!




Churchy Bat
Handmade by myself.
SH
2lbs 10 1/4
40mm Edge
60mm Spine
Net bat for last season until a 1'st teamer broke 3 bats in a row, its an ugly bat but goes like a train, let him use it....interestingly his average went up  ;)



XX Norfolk Cricket Bats
Custom Job.
SSH
2lbs 8 5/8
35mm Edge
55mm Spine
Current Match Bat, super middle, great pickup.





Ayrtek Cricket Bat
Loved the shape and size, impulse buy.
SH
2lbs 10 5/8
38mm Edge
60mm Spine
Great pickup, massive middle area, really want to get this on a bowling machine.




H4L Butterfly Devil Cricket Bat
Loved grains, love a butterfly, impulse buy.
SH
2lbs 10 1/4
35mm Edge
55mm Spine
Great pickup, interesting offset spine to middle ratio, so pretty.



All Together Now




Conclusion

XX Bat to be my League Match Bat, atm.
Get the Jedi and Churchy SSH into the Nets. All same size and roughly the same weight.
Maybe shift the Fugly Net Bat..
Ayrtek and H4L Devil, no idea, not sure there are enough games/training to get use out of them  :(

So again, this isn't everything... I ordered a Professional Plus copy of my first B3 from Josh @JPGavan which I think may have been the one on Instagram the other day. The shape looks right, it's got the sticker/grip/scuff sheet combo I requested and the weight is right.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bt473AKlNeK/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=124lsphjpagt0

If this is indeed mine then I'll be a very happy player!

I got a set of Nike tennis shoes as seen in the post about my Ace kit for the winter which I am looking to spike up. I think Josh Phillipe was using the same trainers but white/black rather than white/blue in the BBL.
