James Laver – Laver & Wood
Laver & Wood custom makes bats to cricketers’ specifications. We aim to make you the best bat you have ever used, listening carefully to what you want from your bat and helping you decide what will work best for you.
We hand make all our bats, and almost all our bats are made to customers specifications. We can alter the length of the blade, the weight of the blade, the length of the handle, and the shape of the handle. We hand grade our willow so can usually find a cleft with the number of grains or the look that you require.
By hand making bats we can make the bat you want, shape of the blade, having thick edges, scalloped blades or a traditional shape. We can position the middle for the kind of conditions you play in. Fast bouncy pitches where runs come from flat bat shots need light bats with a high middle as scoring shots come from generating bat speed.
