I sold a few a while back however they were purchased from a genuine UK supplier and they were very very good. One of my team mates bought one so i got to try it out once he knocked it in.

The bat still has the plastic wrapping on it so the pics aint the best, very nice bats and great quality willow.

Should do as that one is 2lb 8oz so yours should be bigger, I've seen some which are very big.

That depends on how much oil your putting on the bat in one coat, i normally apply a little amount around 2-3 times before and during the knocking in period. Its always best to under oil a bat rather than over oil and i find some bats need more than others.

My way is to add a small amount across all areas of the bat apart from the splice, i always leave it to dry for two days and always in a parallel position and once fully dry i decide if more is required as some bats dry out quickly. I then add another light coat and repeat the above steps and then start knocking the bat in, once the bat is ready i give it a light rub down and possibly another light coat prior to full use.

I have to also say at times I've not oiled the face of the bat at all and I've added a anti scuff straight away and oiled the back and edges and this worked really well.

Sher Amin is hell of a bat! I have seen few and they always have had huge edges. I personally love this bat the most in MB range. Te picture above are of old version of Sher Amin however, I believe the new one has thicker edges

Ive used one and they are as meaty as they come with an excellent pickup.
Be wary of the many fakes floating about on Ebay and buy from a reputable retailer.

Sher is an excellent bat. Pickup and stroke play are amazing. It will need a bit of oiling as bigger edges are produced with the help of drier willow.

Mine was 2.8 with big edges, great pick up and a great middle. Should never have sold it! :(
