Got a Joe Root copy @Canners.

Great Question @19reading87

There was a very average looking GM from a guy Chopra I think. Was very concaved and the face was not pretty. There was a Dhoni bat with the very round toe which I think is pretty yuck.
A lot of them were wrecked beyond repair or delaminated so much that tape was holding the wood on.
To be honest all of the bats were nice and you would expect that being most of them were from International players. I would not call any of them ugly but some were definitely more impressive than others - Warner, Gayle, Root, Billings Nemesis bats were huge, Williamson, and of course Kholi's.

When you say "huge", do you mean bigger than the standard  gauge  that umps carry these days? How huge can these bats be if they still pass the gauge?

Am sure he meant big for the weight and close to max specs

Much fuller and bigger over all. Would just fit through gauge.

I have a question.
How does Keeley afford to sponsor so many people? Someone bankrolling them?

I dont think he sponsors them. They pay him for the bats

No Chance. No Pros would be paying for bats unless they get them blank and then put their actual sponsors on.

TK gets no advertising from it - its only people like forum users who would know that Kohlis bats are made by him and not MRF - so Im sure that the pros contact him to request and pay for his services.

The Pro may not pay for for example if Root wanted TK made bats he would order X amount and NB would either pay TK or Root would with I being back paid via NB or an agent etc. Thats how I believe it works from conversations in the past with a bat maker that makes for international & county pros who dont use his brand.

TK or any other would make 1 or 2 for a massive superstar I would guess but as you say makes now sense to give your top willow away free of charge, especially when your own brand gets no recognition for it

Was the question not about the relatively high number of professionals who are turning out with his stickers on their bats?

My own question is how does manage to turn out such a seemingly high number of bats? And can they all be of the sane undisputed quality?
