The bat's around 3oz lighter, of course it will feel lighter in the hands!

Im not saying it feels lighter, because obviously it will!
Im just saying for the weight of the bat it picks up well compared to my fusion

Review...
I got this Redback for 35 as it was bought by a fella having county trials and it was broken but repaired by Gary!
The grains on the bat are perfect 8 ruler straight grains
The profile is very traditional compared to my fusion, im finding this actually better than the fusion
The ping is amazing! Even the toe flies!
Gary did a great job fixing it and even put the lamitoe in and i applied the tape and the scuff sheet which was kindly sent to me by Gary!

Leo, I think you will find the Redback will be better at the moment as it has been used already, and will be played in more. Your Fusion will catch up soon, but I do agree, his (Gary's) bats are really nice.

So can you ring up Redback and ask them if they have any bats that they are fixing up for sale?

I dont normally get them to be honest, this was a rush job - the guy didnt have time to get it repaired (genuine reason), so i gave him a new one, leaving me with this one to repair and sell and give someone a great deal!
