Some help with origin please
« on: September 02, 2020, 07:29:11 PM »

Ive picked up yet another bat from eBay.

I was told it was a blank Keeely originally and Ive no reason to disbelieve the seller.

It came with two scuff sheets on, a toe guard, loads of tape on the toe and extra thick string binding.

The binding was to thicken the skinny oval and to avoid using 2 grips and the toe protection was to avoid damage not to hide damage.

It arrived at 2lb 11oz - its big, great pick up and fairly concaved

Thoughts?

Stripped back its 2lb 9oz and Id like to send it back to Keeley for the refurb but Ive no idea if they would replace stickers - if they wont it might just stay blank... its a looker.

Certainly looks good! Grains look pretty stunning.

Keeley should refurb it, but wont just send out stickers I believe so it would have to go back to them. Those grains dont need covering up though to be honest  :)

@t2ylo  see my post in your other thread - he;s had bats from loads of different sources, and his dad definately door-stepped Keeley on more than one occasion!

Thanks for the replies.

The fibre tape as a sort of old school toe protector was interesting - I used to have a plastic one 20+ years ago
Two scuffs with one standard and one full length of face again new to me
Some little cuts in side of scuff with a craft knife to help make sure they stick down I guess was new too
All in all its a cracking little bat with an interesting back story.
Im fairly chuffed with it... Ill have a hit with it later today and see if its magically made me any better

We all know a new bat magically makes you a better batsman, why else would we all keep buying them? 😂
