Whats the match situation?

What type of bowler?

Overhead conditions?

Still waiting for the RH v LH suitability and old balls v new balls.

Sorry to be a pest but youve posed the question.

Thanks, in hope of greater clarity.

Still waiting... Im not sure you are taking this as seriously as I am.

Youve asked a fair & balanced question that you want me to spend my time answering & I need help with the variables.

Call me a cynic but Im beginning to think that posting a selection of bat photos clearly from eBay might have been some kind of clever ruse or marketing ploy... not a genuine plea to the cricket bat community for wisdom  and insight

Hi T2ylo, you've choice out of 2 contrasting bats, you're to chose which one is more suitable in all weather conditions, to your playing style; higher middle or mid middle? One with more wood around its splice which is clean white willow or the one with more willow towards it's toe and has butterfly stain and water marks in it's playing area? Both are 2lb 9oz, thanks

You can only choose one, Tom.
None of them will get you much cash, you'll be paying most of it out of your pocket 🙂

There is no such thing as all weather conditions please elaborate

My playing style
adapts to game situation again please give greater context.

Are the slow bowlers on? Is it swinging? Have we had a bit of rain?
Is there a difference in bat performance when factoring in dexterity of batsman?

None of these variables have been established.
Come on AJ you are going to have to put a little more effort in here for the answer you crave.

Thanks in advance for your diligence

Is it me or is this a very strange topic?

You have two good bats that both go very well. Why are you having to choose? Just keep them both.

You'll end up using the one that you score runs with. If you score a 50 you will keep going with that until you get a low score and then probably change to the other one.

Or you can be a strange bat badger like the rest of us and score runs with a bat and for no apparent reason change it the following week because the handle just didn't seem right with the 12th pair of gloves you picked it up with in the garage the evening before the match.

Two good bats, keep them, enjoy them and why start a topic?

What would have been really interesting would be a comprehensive review of both bats in which you showed copious photo's of every single angle/profile. You could explain pick up with and without gloves. You could tap the bat up with new, old, 20 over, 40 over, 50 over and test match used balls.

But thanks for at least posting about lovely bats.

Strange topic though  :(

Thank you T2ylo
Weather is clear: very pleasant, sun shine, no sign of rain
Your team is batting 1st
Off spin from one end, just to start his spell and medium pacer from other end, bowling his 10th over, his figures 2 for 24, score 55/3 in 19 overs.
You went in at 3 and are batting on 16 off 29 balls.
No difference bats performance regardless right or left handed users.

Pick the one you like the stickers best on. If you don't get runs with it, saw it in half?

Thats my level of detail, thank you.

Alas Id never be 16 off 29 so Im going to withdraw from the discussion as my perspective would be of no help to your study.

Is it just me or are AJ topics/posts starting to feel like a meme.

I'd go with Mega btw. Don't like those dark stickers on Kronus.

This can get two pages of views thoughts and comments but the new bat makers can get no feedback or views on what they are producing, questions asked or Input given.

Thats it Im done
