The Dutch Tigers liked the ash 243,thin handle,big barrel. Of course they wanted orange and black colors with gold logo and trimmings. Pelle,are you back in Europe ? The CEB approval is to be looked into.

The wood felt really good but the turning model was not what I like, to skinny a handle and to big barrell and way endloaded, for an ash bat it looked great although the black handle, orange barrell is to dutch for my taste... ;)

Met reps from Dutch Tiger two weeks ago and they gave me a used Barnstable bat, ever thought about applying to the CEB approved bat list? It's a requirement to be used in most european leagues... ;)

Tom-  I agree with Matt. This is interesting on many levels. You may have a new business line. Sure, the up and coming bat makers who need a "masters class" can attend, but you also can have youth teams come in or birthday parties where all the kids leave with a bat they helped make. 

Comment by Thomas Bednark on October 30, 2014 at 9:20am

Matt,thanks for the input. I know we have talked on several occasions about the bat making process and business. After 23 years I have learned a great deal and many starting makers have called for ideas and information. There are many little things that make the process much better and faster.Tom at Barnstable Bat
