    Icon3 Reccomendations for handle

    hey guys,

    i recently broke one of my favourite bats and it sanpped at the base of the handle. I removed the splice and cut the bat down to mongoose size. I then carved out some grooves in the back and sanded back the back of the bat towards the bottom like the dual t20 bat. my aim is to make this bat into a t20 specific bat. i have made it light, it is mongoose size and dual sided. the only problem is i dont have a handle. what do you reccomend. I was thinking metal but then it would need to be solid otherwise it would bend and break when the ball hit the blade. I want to keep costs as low as possible. Please help

    A standard 3 tapered handle would do the trick?

    i am making a mongoose. the handle needs to be extra long because the blade is short. 3 peice andles cost like 50 bucks plus instalation. would metal do the job. doesnt need to be legal just for local t20 not international

    metal feels horrible. carbon fibre is light but slightly expensive. up to you really.
