New 2020 B&S
« on: June 12, 2020, 08:02:38 PM »

Evening all

So to match my softs and after a bit of debate I also picked up a G2 bat as part of Garys bundle deal for bat, pads, gloves and bag. I had no need for bag and the softs I did I little review of last week.

Still sticking to my max 3 bats rule I found myself with just two so that was enough to convince me plus the fact I have had two B&S a few seasons back that are both being used now by a team mate and they have always been superb performance wise.

This is a G2 and a new shape for 2020 and I must say Iv totally fallen for this one. Iv used in four net sessions now and its just superb. Takes something special for me to keep and this is certainly special.

So specs wise its 2.9 with a double thick chevron and standard SH size. Edges are 37mm, toe 25mm at the middle of the toe and shoulders 13mm so its a decent size. Its a mid middle i would say and the pickup and balance is the best of any of my bats. 3 lads have picked it up and all reckoned it was 2.6 or 2.7. I know its not heavy and pick up is subjective but its really that good.

Then we have the performance. Its just superb as good as my GM players edition after the four sessions and The middle is just amazing. Im going to balance this out with the fact its not the best finish wise. Its good but not quite to the same standard as my GMs but they dont stay brand new for long.

8 grains nice and straight and dead straight through the toe and mirrored on the back. A little bit of marble stain smack in the middle of the bat but has no effect on performance at all. Handle is semi oval and quite thin but balanced out with the double thick chevron.

If anyone hasnt tried one I would and looking and new sticks I would strongly consider one of these and this is certainly one of my favourite shapes of recent times.

I've seen their posts of late with bats on sale and resisted to date but posts like this dont help. Big fan of the shape

Top class shape. Very Kohli-like. B&S provides one of the best value for money in my opinion. Their recent sales are 🔥

I've just bought a Harrow off Gary, the response off the mallet was excellent! I've given it to a youth player already who was playing with an very old sports direct special, very tempted to get another for my lad as they're only 45 delivered!

message me when you inevitably move this on (you can't help yourself)... I think I picked up my B&S from you a few years ago and despite me trying others I always come back to it.
