As usual please post pictures.

My kit will have to wait until after Christmas... I am hoping I have been good enough for something from Santa!

Just finished our last game for the year and ended with a golden haha. So cleaning and swapping the gear now for the new year and decided to take a few photo's with the phone while it was all unpacked.













So bats Left to Right

Spartan Diamond - Had a punt on this off amazon and its 2.94 Full and balanced beautifully. Will be my next Game bat once prepared

Spartan Michael Clarke - Friend had one net with it and was to heavy for him. (weighs 2.9) So offered him a bat of mine for a swap. Have been using this and the Silver for games.

Spartan MC 1000 - Oldest bat in the collection and i just don't have the heart to get rid of it. Has a broken handle but i just love the feel of whip from it.

Puma Evo Power Black - Newest to the collection scored this for $180 off amazon during black friday sales

Puma evo Power White - Scored this off amazon as well for really cheap. Is a long blade and i just can't seem to get used to it. Will try and sell if not im gonna cut the handle down and do some mods to it.

Gray Nicolls Silver - Game bat goes like a train. First ever Top range gray nic i have owned.

Gm Chroma Signature - Asked for a 2.10 got a 2.7 so this bat is now my indoor cricket bat.

Gm Mana Le - This was my game bat for 2 seasons. When i am in a slump usually go back to this or the spartan mc 1000.


Helmet is a shrey air 2.0 titanium, Puma 19.1 Bowling shoes.

I do have a pair of nikes and Newbalance bowling shoes but there just sitting in the cupboard collecting dust. Usually get a new pair of shoes every season.

Pads are Gray Nic legends and Spartan Diamond pads. I got the Spartans for dirt cheap off amazon and was going to put them in the kit bag cause there a lot lighter then my legends. Just can't seem to do it tho haha, legend pads are just way more comfortable. The padded straps are just so much better and they also don't squeak!

Not many changes from last year, other than new grips, a couple more pairs of gloves, Puma shoes rather than Payntr and NB, and a new green lid on its way. Certainly not enough to faff around with taking new pics.

Either that or a stroke of genius so his other half has no idea how many he owns 😂

You've probably got more Ben Stokes edition bats than Ben Stokes himself lol

That was the plan, and it was working well until she rocked up to one of my matches and my teammates dropped me in it.

Have another BS PE and another Aussie made GN on the way so really need to thin out the bat selection but thats a job for nearer the season.

Only thing missing is spikes and a a pile of fingerless inners. Will list when everything is when Im on a PC tomorrow. Just wanted to get a photo up.

COVID lockdown got me really down, and a bit bored. Maybe unwisely spent a fair chunk on kit - but have had some very very nice gear as a result.


Here is the first of my numerous sets of kits - a pretty new brand called The Crick3t Lab. And the answer is no - even I would wonder if I was sponsored! :-[






I know I know, I just had to get 7 of each sticker... Kind of like an extreme @t2ylo :D








Here are the profiles of the 5 outer bats, rather Keeley Superior esque shapes with no concaving and a good volume of wood through the hitting zone. I wonder why... (Disclaimer, I've only seen one Superior in the flesh, and I'd say this is pretty close to that profile)

   





3 bats TCL shaped up and also an Argon OLE beaut which was rehandled. (The one on the right was an attempted ST shape)


     


And a close up of the softs, which were very nice indeed. Will be testing these out on my V Elite batting aid, and possibly my Paceman, if I can find the balls! (Forgot to take an individual one of the Duffle, but seems to be able to fit all the kit plus 2 bats, so what I need!)




Of course, one of the 3 Ayrtek lids will be included in this kit, alongside maybe some new Strettons - I'm keen to find out how the mouldable off the shelf ones are like! Then again, I do have 2 pairs of P2s and a pair of Strettons already...

Here's hoping we do get some cricket at least!

A bit excessive to say the least! Will pop up a review on the kit, but probably only go through 2 bats or so!

Not going to lie - I find it obscene too - and I've still got more! Would be best mute/ignore my posts for a while! :(
