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
Thanks sold, and not a laminate.

Now that the sizes are restricted, did anyone observe or expect handles to get back to senior widths?..almost all brands since last few years had what you can call junior width handles which won't do with single grip for the average sized mens hand. My 5 months old SS ton handle recently broke two inches above the handle bottom and it was not a surprise with such a big bat and extremely thin handle. The fact that i added extra grip expectedly didnt strengthen the thin handle itself as opposed to having a thicker/stronger handle in the first place..

As I understand the new laws it's up to the leagues to determine if you can or can't use illegal bats. I imagine most have kept quiet to avoid annoying players or getting caught up with cost disputes. Not sure umpires will be armed with bat gauges either. Better to keep quiet and let old age take it's course. Not many cheating handle bats left.

GM have made bat gauges for umpires @ 5, wouldn't surprise me to see some umpires armed with them wanting to flout their new power.

Not in any way related to the last comment, are there manufacturers who have actively helped push these new laws along? It must be in the interest of at least a few

Laver seemed very vocal on the matter trying to push the new rules through,  wouldn't surprise me if most of the companies using JS Wrights as willow suppliers also pushed it through as the new regs seem to be uncannily similar to the max measurements you can get out of a 'standard' cleft from them

I was told on Twitter by 3D sports that GM and Kook will not make a bat bigger than the new Reg's.......apparently they told them when they went to their shop.

I have had the same suspicion about the max bat size regulations. I was disappointed when James Laver started yammering about the cleft size in his facebook video. Never buying a Laver again that's for sure.

God bless GN AUS for making such amazing bats! If I could, I'd put Stu Kranzbuhler visage on $1 coin. What a great man!

I saw this in their catalogue. Cannot wait for certain Jobs-worth umpires in our league to measure everyones bat as they walk to the crease.....

Silly question, but I wonder what the exact dimensions of the gauge are? If you have scuff and edge tape that can easily add a mm or two... you have to assume it has a few mm tolerance each way...
