Let me clarify lol:

1. I buy an unstickered bat from Ben that he told me was a Keeley made Root reject.
2. Upon receiving I notice the handle inserts are not what Ive seen on keeley bats so i post on cbf to get opinion.
3. Casual strolling on CBF leads me to the ebay thread where a chase is listed. I notice it looks exactly like the bat i just bought minus the stickers.
4. I realize Ben bought this bat off ebay, removed the stickers and made a fool out of me by selling it to me as a Root TK reject.

This ebay listing has probably not been updated by the original seller(not Ben). Hope this clears everything lol

BatDoctorBristol on insta. He fixes bats for pros. This is not the only bat Ive purchased from him. Between me and a friend we bought 5-6. We purchased them over a couple of months. I only got them recently as Im outside of the UK and my friend brought them with him a few days ago. Every single one of them has a made-up story attached to it and I have proof for each lie lol. I kinda wanna post everything here but whats the point.

So this is actually an SF bat, which was restickered as a Chase (which is still listed on Ebay) but then sold to you plain as a Root/Pro bat reject?  :(

All very confusing stuff! Regardless of whether its a good bat or not, I'd be gutted at paying 275 for a refurbished SF! This is why the whole 'Pro bat' thing is garbage in my opinion. 275 or thereabouts buys you a brand new stick from lots of very good batmakers, made to your specs and which will perform as good as anything.....sharpie or no sharpie!  :D

All very weird. Why is the Danish player still selling an apparent SF as a Chase if he doesn’t even have the bat??? Is that what you are saying Adjal? Would be bad for him to be claiming this is a Chase and using 6 sixes as credibility and bad/ weird to be listing a bat he doesn’t have (if this is all the case of course). Presumably this would have been who the batdoc got it from or vice versa

This is not an SF bat. Its a chase bat that the player sold to Ben who removed the stickers and sold it to me claiming it as a root Keeley reject. Im not sure where the confusion lies.

... because it doesn’t have any traits of a genuine Chase and has a decidedly dodgy looking cheaply handle and the wrong shoulders etc. Maybe it was rehandled but with seeing more detail in your pics, nothing about it looks like Chase

I think Dan is right, think this is an Indian made bat. Ive looked again at the chase I have and whilst they will vary in spec the handle is totally different.

I think you have an SF bat stickered up.

Im just going by Robs comment on the ebay thread.

Yeah genuine, had two custom made on a factory visit thru me, plays for Denmark 🇩🇰


Could be SF or anything else really. Just know that the one on ebay is the same bat I have
