Must have been a terrible experience .

It was. I still wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat when I have nightmares about such a harrowing ordeal.

Great point! Thats exactly why we do what we do. Buying online can be hard so using sites that show actual bat photos and list specs (and will also send extra pictures and videos if asked) can really help.

I love your website! Just had a look at it for the first time ever, and its how EVERY cricket shop should sell their bats.

I'm not sure you're the right person for him to be taking notice of? Given that you've already made your mind up what you're buying?

The head batmaker at Gray Nicolls told me size has nothing to do with it.  I believe he comes on here sometimes?

But anyone who has played cricket can tell you that a huge part of playing well is in your own head. If a certain bat gives you confidence, crack on.

Spot on! Cricket is more mental than anything.

Very true. I bought a GM Noir LE a couple of years ago, and thought it was absolutely perfect. Perfect grain, weight, pickup and profile. Felt great with the mallet and ball. Gave it a hit in the nets and within 2 minutes I had decided that I absolutely hated the feel. An hour later it was on eBay!
I believe you on this, but did you find out why you hated it?
If I may have a guess, it wasn't full sapwood bat

It must be great to be able to gain confidence from something you know isn't true.

Could it not have been that he hadn't used it for long enough?

Not every part of your mental approach is entirely rational. Look at how many players in all varieties of sports have a "lucky" piece of equipment.

There was a tiny bit of heartwood on the inside edge. It performed ok, but I didnt like the firm feel of it.

Maybe it was the balls?

Comment from batmaker Ian Callen in the same magazine might also cause a stir on here. In response to the question "What about when the batmakers try to move the sweet spot to suit a player's style?":

"The middle is the middle, there's no other place for it. Try and run the sweet spot down the bat and it becomes bottom-heavy, ruins the pick-up. Then the batter has to use lots of grips to balance the bat. You'll get some battters who say that they hit the ball on the up, so they need the middle higher up. You need the middle in the middle. Even in the subcontinent with low bounce, when you watch DRS, how many times does the ball bounce over the stumps?"

What a crock of.....
