Further to this on this website there is an interview with John the gray-nicolls podshaver

He says they are bringing out something similar to the mongoose called the Volcano (!)

Does it say that? It says they were playing around with a bat called the Volcano years ago......does this mean it will be coming out next year, or something we may never see?

sorry I should learn to read.

!

I spent more time reading the batting advice - which in this case is the most complicated pile of comments I have seen cobbled together in ages and the dissection of Cooks technique on the podcast forgets to mention that his head is moving at the point of delivery which means he is a) off balance and b) can't see the ball clearly...

Plus -
"He used to be able to produce around 100 a day but the modern trend for thick edges and a big bow in the blade (the curve you see along the face of modern bats) means it takes longer to press the wood and he has slowed down."

- hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm :o

I suspect he is looking for an excuse to justify the 350 price tag on the bats...!

it doesn't add up pressing a bow doesn't take a huge amount of time and can be done in one pass so from 100 to 12 seems a bit.......... well shocking
