More info

The lighter counterpart to the Pod, the SLX sits at the top of our production with the Pod in complexity of shape.  With a uniquely blended profile, what appears to be a rounder, traditional shape to the face actually stems from hand shaping our modern flatter pressing.  An extended low bow leads naturally into the lower driving area.  The SLX has a beautiful profile showcasing classic handmaking, underpinned by very advanced manufacturing generating sublime performance.  All wrapped up in stunning new etched and embossed fingerprint metallic labelling.

  • semi-flat (modern) face profile
  • substantial edges
  • extended, low bow
  • lower driving area
  • minimal concave sanding through back
  • more elliptical oval handle
  • for accomplished players who like to dominate off the front foot, a stroke-maker’s bat
  • uniquely etched, textured, patterned and embossed chrome/white/black/blue labels
  • highest level of English artisan batmaking: individually handmade by Salix 
  • CNC free: individual in-house pressing and processing from cleft to bat 
  • Bat Vax toe dipped: especially developed natural, plant based sealer to help prevent water ingress, sealing end grain to protect against cracks
  • trademark Salix angled toe and blended edges to minimise tapping and running in damage, in conjunction with the player’s care and maintenance regime
  • comes pre-knocked in - we always recommend further knocking in around the edges and toe before use
