RS VK and ST profile bats
« on: December 10, 2020, 05:53:05 PM »

Not sure if the pictures or my words can do enough justice to RS bats. Simply WOW! Bats are replica of  VK and ST profiles in butterfly willow. Having owned a lot of bats, I can comfortably say that RS bat making is up there along with other major brands. From  start to finish, the communication I had with Mr Jolly was smooth. The best thing about him is that he treats each and every customer with utmost respect regardless of the amount of order which is rare to find these days especially from an owner who makes softs and bats for numerous other cricket brands. I don't think I can get a better value for money from any other brand that I got with RS!

Both bats pick up and ping amazing. ST is relatively heavier than VK given the shape of the profile but picks up really well. pressing on both bats is consistent. An 80 overs old sovereign ball just flies off the blade. handle on both the bats is semi oval with medium thickness. VK weighs 2lb 10.4 oz and ST weighs 2lb 11oz

With the current tier system in the UK, it's quite complicated to book indoor nets. Once the weather gets a bit better, I will try them out in outdoor nets and post video on my Youtube channel :)

I recently got a VK profile bat from RS too in a similar weight and tried out against bowling machine this evening. Pressing and pick up is fantastic and can't wait to get the butterfly bat I've put an order in for with Mr Jolly.

Always found RS bats to be quality finish wise. Only issue I found was weight. Mostly all 2.11 plus. Was always tough getting a light bat from them.
