Hitman cricket seller claims
« on: January 31, 2017, 02:35:50 AM »

Just found this guy selling supposedly truly "pro" grade cricket bats using the top 1% or 0.5% clefts lol.

"
I've had GN Legends, GM Mogul, Kookaburra Patriots. All shop bats and all average compared to international players bats."

Is this just another absolute bs seller marketing absolute tripe? Major false advertising and slagging normal retail bats saying those players grade and grade 1 willows are crap compared to his "limited edition" clefts.

His youtube videos are a joke too... apparently he has been accumulating bats for over 10 years.


The advertising claims this guy makes is unbelievable such as:

"The Mercenary range is the big boys of bats. These are absolute beasts. Only the best top 1% of oversized willow goes into these bats. These bats truly are huge and make a mockery of normal sized bats. Super low density performance willow. Made of elite test grade English Willow. You can't buy these in a shop and certainly not available to the public.

These bats are bigger than Warners bat. If you are after a big blade to help you put the ball not only over the fence but out of the park, then this batfor you."

"The Assassin LE range is the elite and Rolls Royce of cricket bats. These were all once sponsored international players bats. Kohli, De Villiers etc. Only the best top 0.5% of willow goes into these bats. Picked out of the top Assassins and rated both on appearance and performance. These bats truly are out and out cannons. Super low density high performance willow. This willow is what is reserved for the international players. Elite test grade English Willow. You can't buy these in a shop and certainly not available to the public. If you are after the best and only the best will do. Then the Assassin LE is for you"

"You can't buy these in a shop and certainly not available to the public. So no you won't find these in shops and they certainly are not easy to get even with many contacts."

Lol

just had a Hitman Mercenary come through the doors for preparation and it is a very very nice stick, definitely not a huge bat though but its not small. Pings very nicely too.
I do agree with you that some of the claims they make sound a bit dodgy haha!

Few interesting claims, look like they are from same maker as Ulysses. Top 3 grades are all international players grade willow, not many companies can claim that. Can't see many players paying $1200 or $900 for an unknown brand with stickers of some sort of gangster on it though. Seems passionate and good luck to him but it's a tough gig. If they are same as Ulysses the one I prepared was a nice stick, it was the top one so not sure how they compare to lower models.

Yea but he is basically saying other mainstream brands such as Gray Nicholls/NB etc with their players grade ranges are not in fact real players grade willow compared to his Hitman range.

These bats are as rare as it gets. Getting a hold of them even with the contacts I do is very difficult.
To give you some idea, these things would murder your GN Legend Gold and GM Mana!
It's like putting a Holden up against a Ferrari!

PS: if you can't make runs with one of these Assassins, you really shouldn't be playing!

Even Grandma could make a run with these!!!!


Performance: 9.5-10/10 (Trampoline Ping) due to ridiculous size

The Mercenary will bully the ball over the fence. You will have the bowlers at your mercy!

PS: if you can't clear the infield with one of these you really should start hitting the gym!
This bat is for the blokes who can't hit the ball off the square!

You can't buy these in a shop and certainly not available to the public.

Not available to the public - unless you buy over the net from a start up brand. It's gimmicky but I am sure a few tragics like us will have a crack looking for the perfect bat.

For 550 I'd want something pretty special for my money, I'd expect someone to be included to hit it out of the ground for me.

The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.

This is the type of strategic engagement that disincentivises key stakeholders from taking a customer-centric 360 degree helicopter view to establish business insight and become an intelligence led evidence-driven enterprise.

His claims and pics of prefect grainy bats on the website can mean only one thing - he is sourcing his willow from CX

Willow or wallpaper?
