I've tried double binding too Buzz but a single layer of extra twine isn't enough for my big hands.

On my Keeley bats I have frequently put a second binding on the bottom hand and that has done the trick, sometimes with tape underneath.

A lot like this, although it isn't a Keeley


I can vouch for this @Buzz as this was the case on BB I had from you it did help

I tend to use tape on a keeley I am the same as the comments above - not keen on the handles. Although some of the keeleys that Uzi gets at uzi sports tend to have a Merlin handle on them which really helps and feels great

I have around 14 Keeleys myself. I just love the way they feel.

I am a B3 convert at the moment but if the opportunity came to buy a Keeley at a decent enough price I dont think I could let it pass.

TBH doesn't look much difference in price at the moment and actually some cheaper currently with Keeley than B3 since the price rises, don't think I can justify 315 for a grade 2 bat! Prices continue to rise.

If price is a concern, Keeley's are available at reasonable prices. You have to look around though.

Blimey that's extraordinary.

How are you getting on with the Pearl? Did it take a while to knock in and open up like the one I have recently got hold of?

Iv had a couple but will be honest and say whilst they were decent bats I didnt find them much if any better to my GM bats Iv been using for the last few seasons. Will say they pick up well and of course they are good but I would still rather a salix over a Keeley personally
