Still havent got out since I started using it. 33*, DNB, 35* and 74*

Why didnt I find this at 15 (and get proper coaching)
This is CBF so... *waits for sale thread*

I've had two bats I felt were perfect for me at the time - a Kookaburra Big Kahuna bought when I was a teenager, and my current match bat. Got a stupidly light cleft in and had to take as little off it as I could to get it up to my weight, and it just makes batting feel easy.

Ive got a massive pile of bats to sell on, theyll be on eBay late summer/early autumn when I can get back to the U.K. cutting down to the one, a wet weather bat and a reserve  :D

I had one of those bats. Single figure averages to a season of 30+ every innings.... yeah I sold it because I didn't like how it sounded  :( :D Smart. No back to single digit averages  :D

The best bat i've ever owned bar none was Woodworm Torch i bought top of the range in 2005 off the back of Pietersen innings with same bat in Ashes the 158!...it was 2lb 8, picked up like a feather and went like a train, i've still got it and go back to it on occasions but its not as good as it once was but the balance of it was perfect i've never kept a bat anywhere near as long as that one, however see my recent new thread today on the Keeley superior ive just secured im hoping she will be the one she lloks beautiful

I had a v600 panther kashmir willow when i was a junior that was so bad it was good too, i averaged 130 with it one season, mainly because it made me play different i would never get out caught playing recklessly as I didnt trust the bat enough to take the aerial route so i just always aimed to hit the ball along the ground with it and made buckets of runs

Worst bat ive ever had was a limited edition gunn and moore purist i bought around 2008 that Michael Vaughan used at time it was dead as a dodo, absolutely hated it

I've just replaced my Stanford SF Limited edition too which ive only used in about 15 innings, thats 2lb 9 but i dont like the balance and pick up of it, bit bottom heavy for me so i'll probably look to sell that one soon
