GN Cloudcatcher
« on: October 02, 2019, 11:56:49 AM »

Does anyone have any experience with the GN Cloudcatchers for fielding practice - whats the difference in the two versions and which is the most versatile or what other options exist please?
Thanks

I use it a lot but only the padded side. I have hit a few balls on the wooden side and it comes off well so if you wanted to it works. As I said though I only use the padded side for all fielding drills and just adjust my power. I find it a lot easier to use than a Skyer which have the angled pad towards the handle.

So there is learning no 1 that you can use both sides 🤦‍♂️

I thought the wooden side was for slip catches. No expert though as we dont do fielding practice or warm ups or anything that takes up unnecessary energy.

Haha - good point! No point in wasting the catches either!

Yeah I think it is but I prefer a full size bat for slips catches. Two very good points though.

I've used them but find the tiny handle a bit annoying, prefer a skyer find them easier to be accurate with.
