Absolute monster

Finally had my first game with it last weekend. Super impressed with how the ball just rocketed off the bat for a 4 without any power in the shot, or even hitting it out of the sweet spot. I have some awesome bats from here in Australia, but this hand made English weapon is my favourite!

Fantastic, and so responsive

My bat arrived knocked in, and I took it to a net session a couple of hours later. It's a monster... Light but immensely powerful, and looks gorgeous too. Love at first hit. Thanks guys... :-)
