MIDS Legend..2.9, 50mm edges, 10 straight and even grains front and back, pinged better than all bats under 2.12 I've had.

I had a Hunts county insignia which I got refurbed by Hunts with the new stickers (Black and white C on the front). my nephew was using a sports direct special for his bat along with some other kit that was terrible, I cobbled some kit together and gave him the Insignia, it was more of a traditional bat and weighed 2.6 I thought I needed heavier, I went to watch him play with it and he was just cannoning the ball everywhere, it was at the point when he sent one back over the bowlers head for six I instantly regretted giving that bat away.

You shouldn't regret something like that in my view.

Not a bad trade for permanent favourite uncle status 😅

The tongue was well and truly planted in the cheek when I typed that, it was more of a "why didn't it do that for me!"

I had a decent Reebok bat in the 2005 season i purchased off ebay that had a good middle. Guy at the club pestered me for it for weeks. I eventually gave in and sold it to him for only 20. He lost the bat few weeks later!

I actually like Darker colour on a bat after oiling. I have a GM noir that went really tanned after oil but in my head thats sign of good willow. True or false?.. not sure

This is another I really regret- 2.10 Finch shape, maxing out the gauges. This one was all my fault. I never liked how it felt to hit balls as it felt really hard/ solid but it really flew and I averaged high 40's with this one... I've averaged low single digits since :( I had another made which was pressed beautifully this time but it didn't feel anywhere near as nice :( What led to selling this one was the colour it went with an oil- I couldn't stand to look at it so again sold for not too much. It still seems to be alive as I noticed it on ebay recently. I am not oiling a bat again!!!







I remember buying this had it refurbed, but it lost quite a bit of weight but loved the shape. Afterwards I bought a B3 Finch Pro (exact same profile as the YouTube video) loved that bay just was a tad bit heavy gutted I moved it on, still tempted to get another one

Now I know why you sold me that lovely GM Noir for next to nothing!

Why didnt you just sand it down?

I can verify that with the bats I've bought from @DorsetDan I've asked the question, "why did he sell that"?

I've not sold anything I've regretted, but I've definitely bought bats off here that have made me wonder what on earth was wrong with the seller!

Agreed. I'd have been very pleased with that outcome.
