Are the clefts not roughly half the price of likewise English Willow clefts as stated by hunts at dummer the other week.

I used a Canadian Willow one last year it had size but lacked punch put did tap one of these ups seemed OK.

The Hunts bat at dummer had everything, grains, massive edges for the weight, great pickup and performance, and grains!

The raw clefts maybe, but that's not including getting them from Serbia to the UK.

Yes, and it's likely a pricing/volume situation as well.

The price the rep was chatting about was still roughly half that of English Willow top grade yes they was a chat about volume prices maybe I was mistaken

How much are hunts selling the Kracken I think it was called.

Unless I was misunderstood hunts are the sole distributor for the said willow in the Uk

May have to see my man to test one I did not rate the Canadian stuff but like somebody has already said the bat hunts had was decent

Anybody got one to try

Hunts make my Serbian Willow Bats out of the Clefts I supply them you can't just buy Grade 1 Clefts you have to buy a percentage through out the grades and as far as I know there are no official Distributors in the UK although Hunts were going to see them they could very well have set up an agreement which if they have very Clever

Do we know a cleft price from Serbia without freight?
As there is always a cheaper freight option I believe

Yes, post a photo of the grains.

Some clefts it's obvious, some you'd never tell it apart from English.

Ask the manufacturer/maker. I'm sure none would pass it off as English Willow knowing it's Serbian! 😆

In fairness I've seen some which looks great in terms of grain structure etc. So not always easy.
