Yes you are probably right on reflection @Canners
However the handles do tend to be of better quality on a pro keeley

Lovely pair of bats - what grades are they? And are the Worx stickers dark green in colour?

Thanks! Unsure on the exact grade of each bat, but the worx bat was originally a Phantom custom, it is in the same shape as the original dark edition but just wasn't grainy enough to be a dark edition. The performance on the bat is still the best out of all the bats that have passed through my hands. The stickers as british racing green, you can see them better in the google photos album :)

The superior was originally a blank bats, its shape is essentially the keeley superior shape. I believe it was officially a grade 2.

I really recommend the keeley refurb service, it was 30 quid for each bat and I got repairs like the toe needed doweling on the phantom, new toe guards, new scuff sheets, new stickers, new grips, and handle rebinding on the phantom. The finish on the bats is like new as well!

Would he sticker up bats he didn't make following a refurb?

A friend has sent off an SG which was returned to him with stickers on following a refurb. Might be worth a call to double check.

Great, thanks for explaining! And good to hear about the refurb service too - did you just ring them up to arrange it? And did you get to choose the stickers?

I just emailed them to let them know i'll be sending them off, I then attached a bit of paper listing what work needed to be done to each bat, and the grip and sticker choice.
