I put all the details in this thread with pictures.  Let me know if you have questions, I'd be happy to help.

Thanks mate, interesting stuff. I'm toying with the idea of a half inch shorter blade and a standard SH handle to see if I can achieve a similar effect to your Size 6-3 combination. Have been using shorter blade bats with the handle cut down then built up at the knob with medical tape and have a heavier weight Harrow on the way. May experiment in future once I've sold the various bats I've accumulated!

Once you figure out what works for you, batting becomes an absolute joy!

I'll still have the same deficiencies in technique 😅 next year will be the season of spending money on coaching!

Firstly the handle shape has to be right for me, then just feel in the hands.
