Hi mate, he talks about it in this video as well as showing off his "retired stick" from the world cup - can't remember exactly when he talks about Stokes but its a good 8 minutes anyway  :)

Easier to find it on Instagram but im sure it will exist across their other social channels if you don't have an account

Great little watch! Cheers mate

The toe and shoulders of the Stokes bat noticeably thicker than most "player edition" Stokes bats i've seen

Nice to see that Stokes gives the edge of his bat a good work out just like the rest of us!

Brilliant pics @potzy248 thanks for sharing! Did you happen to know what weights they were?

From an interview Root did with Sky he was saying that Stokes is terrified of over gripping the bat, leads him to getting his bats, wrapping the handle in tape, putting a grip on, wrapping it in tape again and then putting another grip on top. Makes sense given how thick those handles look.

I was told it was 2.9 (maybe without the grips) and a bit but it felt more like 2.11lb when I picked it up.

It was definitely bigger overall than the Stokes PE's I have seen also.

What material is used for the counterbalance on McCullum's bat?

Not sure. All I could see was the medical tape. So not sure if he just does a big knob of that or he has grips cut up underneath. His one weighed 2.11lb but honestly felt like a 2.8 when I picked it up. The counter balance must work.

Pretty sure it does. Not sure where you're getting this information. It's not one of mine, a kid from my school has it.

Ohhh. No that bat next to McCullum's bat is not the Stokes bat. That is a Centurion bat from a local batmaker here in NZ.

Mate, if possible, could you post a pic of the counterbalance on the McCullum, with the grip rolled down a bit to see how they do it..

Sorry mate. Those photos were taken at Xmas. I have no idea where that bat is now.
