GM Luna. Worst bat design ever. Only ever seen one and it was a total plank.
I hated the shape but used one in a few nets and found it really suited the way I play...

Whereas I hated it when I used it but didn't mind the shape.

It was a 4 Scoop!



Had one. Pick up was odd, but it flew.

Mate at club had one, was also a plank, ended up breaking and getting binned.

This bat must have been in the range when GM were pressing all the life out of their bats as few years ago.

Didn't GM do one with a big hump in the back a couple of seasons ago?  Was it called the Zona????

One of the opposition batsmen had one in a match I played a few years back. The ball was absolutely racing off his bat! It was like a trampoline!!

I do recall a bat from the early 90's with holes all the way through, in order to improve it's aerodynamic qualities.

@Tom do you still have the photos and can you upload them elsewhere please?

Anyone remember the model of Hunts County that had a honeycomb construction in it which was partly exposed at the back??
