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.
  • HANDLE LENGTH 295mm
  • F4.5 FACE PROFILE
  • MASSIVE CONTOURED EDGES AT DRIVE ZONE
  • LOW TO MID SWELL POSITION FOR ALLROUND POWER PLAY
  • PARTIALLY CONCAVED BACK PROFILE TO GIVE ADDED STRENGTH
  • A BIG BAT
  • Made from unbleached seasoned Grade 1 English Willow
  • Predominantly straight grained with colour on one edge and minor cosmetic blemishes
  • Fitted with top 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.

rating High quality bat
Tim B. on 04/02/2017 Nice bat, straight grains, good pickup, good finish with stickers, toe and protective face, ball flys off middle particularly well.. Looking forward to using in game
rating Great
Hussain S. on 15/03/2017 I would definitely recommend this bat. Good pick up for a lower sweetspot bat, nice grains and ball just flies off the middle.
rating Great service
Pulkit S. on 01/03/2018 I received my bat within the mentioned time frame and packaging was great with no damage to my bat. Only downside, I would have really appreciated if my bat cane with the cover!
Thanks,
Pulkit
