nothing flash here sorry -  :( - mostly ebay used gear to save money  :D







Be interested to know how that Slaz goes.

Just returning to the game after a long break but my last match bat when I stopped playing was an amazing V600. Used to have such a good reputation and now seemingly relegated to Sports Direct Specials.... makes me sad

i'm pretty sure it is not a real slaz, as it does not have any of the 'grooves' a real v800 had - the stickers also don't seem genuine - i think they are the fakes you can buy on ebay - but they look ok and for 30 it taps up nicely and will be great as a net/wet & back up bat - esp as my match bat is on its last legs!!!

no idea sorry - came to me without any stickers and couldn't work out what it was from any shape/sticker residue - seller didn't say what it was on the listing

it absolutely flies though and picks up like a feather - i've never had anything as nice as it - just hope it holds together!!!  :D

No risk of it falling apart when it's mummified in bat tape and scuff sheets 😂

What brand/model did you order? Planning to buy a helmet but waiting until shops open back up to go and try before purchasing one.

The Masuri E Line titanium. Once the shipping was factored in (USA store), it was neaaaaarly more economical to get the E Line, so after many nights of indecision, I went for that. I nearly bought the T line instead.. Can't wait to get to the nets in Detroit for the first time!

Caved and got everything out this morning. Missing a bat away at @Neon Cricket for a refurb and the new Neon Blue gloves, but this is what is currently lying around:

WIN_20210124_11_01_08_Pro by Alex Gorton, on Flickr

Shrey Ti and Masuri OS2 Test Ti
Neon gloves 2x white, 1x black
Neon pads, black and white
2x unbranded gloves, one shark tooth and one sausage finger that are a copy of the MH16 model.
Strettons and Aero P1
Black and white Ayrtek, large in both colours and small white
2x Ace gloves that are used for trainings
Shock Dr box and cheap other box.

I'm effectively keeping two separate bags for midweek and weekend. Neon jr duffle for midweek/black kit, wheelie duffle for league.

I seem to have been accumulating spikes as well as gloves:

2x NB CK10s - absolutely loved them so when I found the green ones on ebay for 40 I didn't hesitate.
Old Asics Gel-Gully 5 which haven't managed to sneak into the pics.
Old Nike Lunar Dominate and new Nike rubber spikes.
Number 1 definitely my Asics Roadhawk FF2, spiked up by The Shoe Doctor. Absolutely love them!

Bats L to R:
Hunts County
JP Gavan Pro Plus (copy of B3 shape 19)
B3 shape 19
Neon Green (absolute rocket, thanks Adam!)
Ace Players LE
Spyder Venom - bought as a project for lockdown, will have Neon Yellow stickers applied.

Missing my JP Gavan Featherblade as it is away getting a refurb and Neon Blue stickers.

All bats stickered as Neon as I am lucky enough to be supported by Adam. I did get a few verbals for the bright green stick last season, but found the best answer was to let the middle of the bat speak for itself.

Excellent! Definitely needed some TLC that I just don't have the facilities to do, sure it will have been an interesting challenge.

Very jealous of those fresh ck10s much prefer the shape of them to the latest versions with the bootie style opening.

It was a case of seeing them in my size on eBay, giving it about 30 seconds thought and going for it. Safe to say I am sorted for a while for spikes.
