Cheers @SOULMAN1012 someone had mentioned them the other day. Will have a look but I got the impression you couldn't choose any kind of specification (weight, etc) so slightly concerned it will end up as a very expensive doorstop not a bargain bat!

@Jimbo. As far as I know you can request weight but you cant start requesting custom shapes or set grains etc.  I think as long as you are reasonable i.e request a weight between 2.8-2.10 for example that will be fine. I think what happened was once a few bargain bats were posted here, people started messaging, calling Chase etc with specific requests and kind of forgot they are 65 clearance bats basically

@SOULMAN1012 Ah right, cheers. If that's the case then definitely worth a punt!

Having been to chase to pick one of these bats, there are a few left, but they are all the low middle shape.

The bats all have weights written on the handles. There are some ok ones and some fugly ones. It is pot luck. Unless you can pick one...

Hmmm... Given I play most of my cricket on artificial wickets I might give them a miss then. Had absolutely zero joy with low middle bats in the past.
