Seeing as I already have whites, and have an old hockey bag I can use, I'm sure I can pick up bat, gloves, pads, and helmet for similar. Looking at the Dynamic Sports link provided, I can get entry level Kookaburra bat (Kahuna 150) + pads and gloves for $200. No helmets on the website, but I'll check them out in person when I'm over there.
I'll also be sure to name drop "Hurricane" for an expected special discount
Cool bananas. I am just emailing him now to tell him you might stop by and will make another post if he has any special comments in his reply. He will help you pick out a good bat with the right weight for you. Be happy you are buying in Canada btw a similar bat costs $300 in New Zealand. They are distinctly cheaper in Canada in part because the dollar is stronger.
