Mids Custom Cricket Bat
« on: January 10, 2021, 02:39:23 PM »

Hi all

Thanks to Covid, my stay has been extended in Pakistan. As such, I have ended up buying a MIDS bat in Babar Azamish profile!!?? (that's what i requested..)

I had heard a lot about MIDS bats performing really well so got this custom profile directly from Hassan at MIDS. Took a while to get this though as I think MIDS mostly do B2B..

Really impressed with the performance after knocking it in. I will say though the willow was really soft initially and required carefully knocking-in. The edges were really sharp as well which is standard for any Pakistani bat. Hopefully the bat lasts as I feel that the shoulder area might be a bit on the thinner side.....

Paid 130 for this + a pair of gloves!

Weight is 2lb 9oz

MIDS are a bit like Malik - really good bats if you get one with a decently made handle - but soooo difficult to find a reputable source to buy from in the UK, seem to be many 'interesting' ones on ebay.

Malik Sher was one of the best bats I ever used, and I'm pretty sure I had a used MIDS off Dave that was a pinger too.

I really like the branding.

I recently saw The Cricket Shed mention they are due to be stocking Mids. Although, not yet on their website!
