This is a magnificent thread, thanks so much for sharing.
And great work with the bats.

Great effort mate, looks really good. I made a replica S6 when i first started too, it's a classic bat that won a lot if people over.

Awesome job mate, I've been following with great interest. The bat looks great, but can you feel any actual difference now?

Thanks for the comments, much appreciated.
The plugs made no difference to the weight, I really should have done before and after weight measurements but I really just did it for the challenge.
It's a light bat for the size but I think that has more to do with the cleft and leaving it on a heating register for a couple of weeks than the holes/plugs. I didn't hit too many in the nets so can't really comment on the performance but it seems pretty good.
Interestingly the other cleft that I got and shaped up is very disappointing as a bat, probably one of the worst performers I have but I'll reserve final judgement until it's done a few more sessions and been played in properly but it feels pretty average.
If anyone has any hot tips on how to get handled clefts to Australia at a semi reasonable price I'm all ears, at the moment I can buy a reasonable quality finished bat for less than the clefts cost.

Have you contacted the source of the cleft to feedback? I'm sure they'd help if there's an issue. I suppose it depends on what you mean by 'disappointing'. Dead or just not as good as others?

I haven't contacted the source of the cleft about it, it's not a plank by any means but it doesn't perform as well as my others. My other bats are all good performers and the only really 'cheap' ones I have are two butterfly jobs from L&W and Aldred which both go quite well.
It could be the shape and balance too - I just don't love it like the Puma/M&H copy, that's one's a keeper for sure. Pity really because I had it laser engraved with my club logo so my market to sell it is very limited.....

JP Gavan for the clefts maybe?

Or find out where JP Gavan sources his from, as they seem to come pre-handled etc.

If any of the Australians want to arrange a group buy let me know and I'll jump on this.
EDIT - looks like just the raw clefts are remaining and have not been pressed.
