Easiest way to post pictures on here is to upload them to https://postimages.org

Then copy the "hotlink for forums" into the body of your massage on here :)

Looks a nice grainy stick. Is that giant dead knot in the shoulder though?

It looks a lot worse in real life than it does in the picture, and, fingers crossed the ball wont be hitting it, so I'm not too fussed myself, the rest of the stick more than makes up for it to me

Looks really great. I can't imagine the shoulder knot can affect performance. The 450 Salix looks amazing too. Let's hope even 2lb 5oz turns out to be too heavy for him. 😂 But seriously, it must be difficult to get the same momentum through the shot with such a light bat. If you're injured I suppose it's the only option.

Doubt it effects performance but can be a week spot, I got a bat that would have been a Pro grade for sure from H4L for 100 due to such a knot.

I have no personal vendetta against phantom. They were TK made and fairly reasonably priced not too long ago. But since they increased their prices and outsourced manufacturing to RS in india (who can post any of their top of the range bats worldwide for USD250 plus postage) i have disregarded phantom as just another insignificant sticker brand that nobody cares about. I would much rather go with Blank bats who are still TK made and very reasonably priced

Ah I see, yeah I will admit that their prices seem a bit ridiculous compared to some of their competition, especially considering their not one of the "established" brands if you get what I mean. Still tempted to pick up their softs and go FKW but we'll see 😂
