Sean Ervine's Bats off eBay
« on: February 28, 2019, 06:23:35 PM »

Might have seen Sean Ervine sold a load of his bats on eBay this week. I think a few forum members got hold of them.
anyway, thought I'd post some photos of what I ended up with. I bought number 7 which was 2'7.5 with no grip. I've redone the facing and cleaned it up a bit. Now with a grip it weighs 2'9 and its pretty large. 43mm edges and 28mm toe.

Mine was pretty much the same. Absolute steal think its a Keeley but just guessing. Have you stuck it through the gauge I think it might be touch and go

Based on my limited experience, i think it is Kippax. I have something similar made by Kippax, it could be exact replica of this.

Im thinking Kippax. Toe looks identical, and the handle looks right.

The profile does look a lot like a colossus to me. Is it a shorter blade longer handle?

I didnt take the plunge but boy was it tempting

Its answered quite a lot of questions about a very decent international player as well.

Range of weight and makers from all over the world - stickers changed as sponsor changes.

His listing was a little haphazard when it first went on but by the end was much clearer and I bet he was bombarded with questions. But 6 bats at 160 isnt a bad weeks work.

i still do not get how he can play golf right handed - i get the thing that the swing can be bad for batting and i know others have done it (remember seeing Lara playing right handed in a video years ago), but i can't even swing the club when i try it!!!

Not that Im anywhere near the standard of Sean Ervine, bought I play tennis left handed and write left handed. But play cricket right handed. To be honest I use to play tennis with both hands until a coach told me you need to pick 😂😂
