 :o I am slightly in shock that in the land of Kranzbuhler GNs this is how someone would choose to spend $800

I'm sorry but $800 for that?
The guy selling them must be laughing all the way to the bank. Ballsy from you putting photos up.

pretty naive comment, without feeling pick up or witnessing ping? that comment is purley based on cosmetics, which i couldnt give a sh*t about

i felt shop bats before selecting this one, closest i could compare is the DC1080 LE which retails at $1,100, almost identical pick up but ping on mine is a fair bit better

800 is a lot of money for a grade three bat but if you’re happy with it that’s all that matters I personally would of gotten a Stuart Kranzbuhler custom for that

Could have picked up three new bats off the “for-sale” section here for that much, and probably had change!

Obviously absolutely up to you how you spend your hard earned dollars - but gee wiz that’s a lot of it for something that looks like that.

It must pick up a pound lighter and absolutely trampoline? The way it’s been hyped I can imagine it does!

I'm sorry but for 800 and a bat looking like that I'm expecting a forward defence to fly to the boundary. Performance on a bat like that may be fantastic, but the price isn't usually as high as that for something that looks like a G3 bat

awfully difficult to purchase bats as a new comer when post counts are lower than 150....i can understand why the limit but surely a limit for selling only not buying?

that said if anyone reads this and has control over things such as this i would genuinely love to further this discussion

I would have preferred Stuart Kranzbuhler or TK made bat if I want to spend that much. But if you’re happy with it that’s all it counts.

Wow that looks like a terrible bat for 800 dollars from even more dodgy seller, but hey you are happy and at least people here now know what kind of sellers to avoid. He told me he sources the bats from india, Pakistan, England and Australia - wherever he can get the best clefts (i.e cheapest willow to make the biggest margin). Most of his bats look like blank Pakistani (HS, CA, AS) bats.

I think Grade 3 is probably generous for this blade, probably more like Grade 3/4.  I know very little about this brand but assuming he stickers up bats, this would have cost him £50, £60, £70 plus about £10 max for stickers.  $800 is around £460 so irrespective of “ PING “ I think his brand should be called “ CONMAN “ Cricket!

But, if people are willing to pay these prices and he’s selling a few bats then he’s got a pretty good business going on.

To put this into perspective, Kippax grade on performance rather than looks and with their various offers recently you could pick one up for £250.  They also grow and have the pick of their own willow and make their own bats.  1 Hitman or 2 Kippax. You decide??
