Just wondered how much they have heeded the new laws.

Probably have 1 model that does, as it doesnt affect club cricket why should they bother? Not many batsman that will benifit properly from the extra 10cm on the edges and spine.

The only bats that will make any difference are the ridiculous laminates like @Churchy1989's which he needs to bring to southern nets

I won't be taking any notice for amateur bats, all a bit of a farce anyway - we all know it'll make 0 difference

I know that GN will keep making the Pro Performance which is unlikely to be compliant. The Kronus Halestorm has a "double edge" which allows it to be big but fit into the gauge, kind of like the Vortex from a few years ago. Kookaburra will all be compliant, and the Fever Max is designed to be the absolute maximum specs whilst still compliant.

IT'd be interesting to see what GN-AUS churns out in light of decision to continue making some non-compliant models.

Everything off the shelf from them now seems to be within the new sizes (maybe Warner excluded not sure)

Yep, I guess except for Warner, there is hardly one else effected.

These restrictions are laughable, in my opinion.

"40 mm edges and 67 mm spine"

You will still see miss-hits going for sixes instead of a catch in today's 60 meter boundaries.

In my opinion, 30 mm edge and 50 mm spine in an 80 meter boundary will separate boys from men.

Get the edges bit but they should of left the spine alone. Batsman should be rewarded for using the middle of the bat.

From personal experience, few players who I feel are affected by this law (for sure) are; Shoaib Malik, Davis Warner, Kamran Akmal and MS Dhoni.

XXX are Meulemans specials and there were many pre season big Aus GN's that seemed to have been slimmed now. Early Signature vs Signatures in shops now is a good example, plus Atomic etc. I'm sure they would make a big bat if you ask nicely but the off the shelf ones are definitely smaller now
