Red Ink Root profile
« on: March 16, 2020, 05:37:47 PM »

So a few months back I asked if anyone was selling a root profile as I fancied trying it.
John at red ink replied and said why not have one made, so I did.
I asked for:
Shorter blade-long handle
2.10-2-12 (more bothered about pick up than the dead weight)
Full/ big as possible
Square toe
Semi oval handle (not too thick handle if poss)

After a couple of weeks the bat arrived at bang on 2lb12oz and the pick up is great with the shorter blade/long handle set up.
I got to use it for the first time yesterday in the nets against the older balls and was very impressed. The toe is nice and thick, middle feels long and the press felt great. I can see this being my match bat this year (if there will be a season of course)

Looks great mate. I must say I think John's bats are as well pressed as any out there at the minute.

Nice profile, enjoy playing with it.
With thin shoulder and throat are bats in this profile more prone to break at the shoulder?

Glad you are pleased with your purchase Jimmy! Appreciate the feedback from everyone as well.

Ive got plenty of lovely clefts in all grades of willow available If anyone is looking for a new bat. Ill hopefully be moving in the next 4-6 weeks so best to grab one now before I close the workshop to move!
