brand new B3
« on: August 15, 2019, 08:45:10 AM »

just received my brand new B3, just as impressed as the last time i used them. the bat is based on the GN players shape such as the williamson/stoinis editions.
weighs 2'13 but picks up nothing like it. in fact it picks up far lighter than the GN it was based on which was 2'9, probably due to the heavier handle.

edges and spine is maxed out to the regulations and theres zero concaving. heaps of wood in it and the coverage is outstanding. in my opinion it has to be one of the best shapes going around at the moment

As always the guys at B3 were great to deal with. really appreciate the lengths they go to

Not bad at all - I'm after new stick, and never had a B3 before. Mate at our club loves his, may try and have a go with it later  :D

The B3 pressing is about as good as it gets at the moment!

You are right, most of the time the press is excellent. Occasionally you still get the odd bat from B3 that is a bit too firm. I've had probably 10+ bats from them and only 2 have been too hard (so that's not too bad a percentage, I suppose).

Brilliant company to deal with, very friendly and approachable.

The only one I have had to send back was too soft but the customer service in replacing it was first rate and the replacement is superb
