Amazing!!

Post by Richie on Mon Apr 28, 2008 3:00 pm

Hi Lads and Lasses,

Just rang Fusion this lunchtime to order my SuperBest, after I spoke with James I felt totally comfortable investing in one of their bats.

I ordered:
Superbest Willow, with as much of a clean face as possible.
2lbs 10oz with a light pick up.
Slightly concaved and slight bow.
Mid placed middle.
Semi-Oval handle.

He then said he would pick out some willow and ring me back tonight or tomorrow to confirm everything.
About 30 mins I have just had a call from him telling me he has finished my bat! He wanted to keep ahead of orders so he did it tonite!

All in all, I am very pleased with everything about Fusion atm, and just hope their bats are as good as their customer service!!

Pics will follow on Wednesday (hopefully!) as that is when I have been told I will be getting it.

Richie.

Im no bat maker but it must take longer than 30 mins to make a bat? Id be a bit worried the bat was just one he had lying around that fitted your specs?

They finished it in 9 hours, if he rang at lunchtime then till he rang (9.30pm) then it's 9 hours. That's enough time to make a bat.

Leo you've owned a single bat from each, remember the Redback was also slightly used meaning it has been played in whereas the Fusion was new.

Even if I'd owned 5 of each of their bats I wouldn't say which company was better, as for all one knows they could be the best or worst 5 they've ever made. Maybe your Redback is a better bat at the moment than your Fusion, but one bat is rather soon to make such a generalisation like company A is way ahead than company B.

In all honesty most companies top grade bats will be around the same level, it's just a matter of finding one that suits.

Well my Surefire is supposedly inferior to my "superbest" but its nice wood.
I have "played in" my superbest...its got a bit better

But the service from Redback is just amazing - chat to him on msn,Email him and he replys phone him and he picks up.

Well, all I can say is that I will do anything to make the night happen quicker!!! Can't comment on Redback, though what I can say is they would have to do something special to beat Fusions customer service!
