Looks TK to me - twine is very much the TK style as are the shoulders, albeit with a very slight style difference.

Ive had the occasional keeley handle like this where it is not the 12 cane inserts.

Also had bats off Ben before and know that that will be an outrageously good stick!

Do you have any bats with this sort of handle inserts that were surely Keeley made.

Ben Keeley, the long lost brother 😱

Sorry I shouldnt joke

I really dont think thats a Keeley, shoulders and handle dont fit the bill for me

Ok. You are cool and funny.

Here is the shoulders and handle top from a Keeley bat. So dont quite look the same to me but are similar.

Mystery solved guys. Was just browsing the ebay/bargain spots thread on here and saw this :

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CHASE-FLC-Pro-Cricket-Bat-2019/202745421192?hash=item2f34919d88:g:1ZcAAOSwHwddP0DX

So someone bought it off ebay, removed the stickers, and sold it to me as a Joe Root Keeley reject for 275.

Are you saying you think yours is a Chase or that that Chase FLC listing is also fake?

Chase don’t do shoulders or handles like yours so I’m guessing that “Chase” is also fake??? Looking again the toe and profile aren’t quite right???

No way your bat was ever going to be a Root reject for that kind of size and shape unfortunately

I'm saying that the Chase bat on ebay is the same bat in this thread. Mr. Ben bought it off ebay, removed the stickers and sold it to me saying it's a keeley that was rejected by Root

The eBay ad is current thou, if its your bat who is selling it on Ebay? Apologies if Ive missed the point.

I happen to be looking at a chase bat in my living room and I think Dan Dorset is right, it dont look like a chase toe or shoulders.

So..so far its been stickered up as a Keeley when it may well not be(its not a Keeley) now stickered up as a chase, currently on  eBay and it may not be that either

The chase bat on ebay and the unstickered bat in this post are the same. It was sold to me as a Keeley pro bat(unstickered), it obviously isnt. The ebay seller didnt claim it to be a tk, the next buyer did, who removed the stickers. Look at the album Ive shared.

So where did the Chase stickers come from?
I can't be the only one who's confused here...

Can you put pictures of the front and back of the knob of the handle please?
