Which piece of kit do you change the least??
« on: March 03, 2019, 10:48:27 PM »

So I know the forum is full of bat geeks and we buy and change our minds on bats on an almost weekly basis as a group but whats the piece or pieces of kit that are never changed?

For me a have 2. My box was borrows from a school kit bag when I was 13/14 and is still my 1st choice piece of kit as hard and sturdy as the day it was made and its taken a few serious blows.
Second for me is pads, my current GM & GN kit both have pads that are over 3 seasons old and pads are a piece of kit i hate changing cant stand wearing a new pair in.

Same as you on the box front, had the same one since i first started playing around 12. I bought mine though, the thought of a borrowed box from the kit bag is not a nice thought!

i've also got some sweat bands that i wear when batting that i've had since i was about 18, to be honest i don't bat for long enough to get that sweaty  :(

Box and thigh pad currently. Although i have used the same bat for 5 summers (which is unheard of in my world!)

I'm still wearing Youths Aero P2s from when I was playing under 17s I think! So at least 6 years old.

Think I've changed every other piece of kit at least twice since I bought my Aeros, they're tatty but still just about clinging on.

Box and p2s.

I've actually kept my batting pads for 3 seasons.. although I had a typical CBF crisis earlier this year  I've kept my BAS players for now.. Hoping to visit Pakistan next year so may well get some new kit cos it's just too good an opp price wise to not to..

box, thigh pad and helmet.

only got new thigh pad set as i lost my original set.

box ive had forever

helmet had for 3 seasons, upgraded from old masuri to new and changed color to match lid, if i hadnt moved clubs that would have changed

i have a feeling this current set of softs will last a while and the bats i doubt will change any time soon

Everything else is up for change as i am getting older and wish to try try try! (to the detriment of consistency in my own game im sure)

Still got my box that I got over 20 years ago! Not sure how hygienic that is to be honest!!

Also still use my 1st set of P2 strippers which are about 8/9 years old.

Plus my spiked trainers are getting on a bit now.

This thread is dangerous because it makes you realise how old some of your kit is! 😂

Thigh guards because if they fit they fit. And they're boring.
