Blue Room Storm Cricket Bat Review.
Posted by jason mellet on 19th Jun 2015
As you have come to know, love and respect, we don't only cover the big name brand cricket bats over here. We love giving exposure to some of the smaller bat makers and some of them are producing truly fantastic cricket bats. One of those bat makers is Blue Room. These bats are made by Robert Pack, He is one of the foremost bat makers in the world and one of his prime bats at the moment is the Blue Room Storm Cricket Bat.
The first noticeable thing about the Blue Room Storm Cricket Bat is that these bats are made from much bigger than usual clefts. The Blue Room Storm Cricket Bat is very much a blend of the old and the new. It has a very traditional profile, with an added element of concaving. This mixture serves many purposes but the two primary purposes are that it provides a maximum amount of power all around the bat and it also makes for a very well balanced cricket bat. This means that when you handle the Blue Room Storm at the crease you will have a very light pick up at the crease with balance and comfort to boot.
A little bit about Robert Pack.
Robert Pack can fix anything!
He likes a bit of wine.
After his wine, he likes a hot bubble bath.
Apparently he is a pretty good bowler.
And he makes high quality bats.
It is needless to say that Robert sources only the best English Willow for these cricket bats. It is a hand pressed bowed blade for maximum power.
The Blue Room Storm Cricket Bat is only available in Senior Sizes and as high quality cricket bats go the weight range is pretty high. These bats start at 2.11 oz and go up from there. Robert uses a special brew of his own oil on all of his Blue Room cricket bats.
Of the smaller bat makers, the Blue Room bats are certainly well priced and a high quality product with the assurance that the bat is made by a truly master bat maker.
