More info

  • TRADITIONAL L555 BLADE LENGTH. GM 2017 Mens bats feature three different blade lengths – L555/540/525. Each blade shape is optimised for a specific blade length. As blade length decreases, handle length increases so that the overall length of the bat remains constant. Shorter blades allow for faster hands through the ball, larger sweet spots and swells, supreme balance and explosive power.
  • Made from superior unbleached seasoned Grade 2 English Willow
  • Minor blemishes, may have some colour to one edge
  • Fitted with good quality treble spring multi-piece cane handle for outstanding feel, flex and control
  • GM NOW! and ToeTek™ finish fitted as standard. This includes:
  1. Knocked-in by the batmaker in-house
  2. Raw linseed oil applied to reduce cracking and splitting by maintaining the moisture level of the blade
  3. Clear anti-scuff cover applied to the face and edges to increase blade durability
  4. DriGuard applied to resist damp and minimise toe swelling
  5. Specially shaped resilient shield fitted to toe of bat
  6. Reduces toe damage and feathering that is often caused by tapping at the crease
  7. Further barrier to damp

We always recommend further knocking in around the toe and edges before first use.

Richard C. on 01/02/2017 Excellent product . Son is over the moon. Many thanks.

Ian P. on 05/12/2017 Really pleased. Quick delivery and decent price.
Could've done without the weight of the bat being written in biro on the shoulder. Perhaps in future write it on the top of the handle underneath the grip.
