Outstanding as always Chad.

I'm just looking at the curvature of the faces. The bats without toe guards have less of arc compared to the others. Is that an indication where there are made do you think or is it the just the shape of that line?

And I'd agree about GN grips being thin. I bought a few of these when they were 2 quid each.

Really tempted by an Elite, are they as full as they look on the pics?


@jimmy23 yeah, they're convex profiles, no concaving whatsoever.

Do you mean the shaping of the toe, or the curvature of the face? The Elite is made in India from my knowledge, as are the Maax and the Powerbow. The Elite has a traditional rounded face while the Maax and Powerbow have a more semi-rounded face

I wasn't very clear. The curvature of the face.

Ok, the war with max edges has ended but I didn't expect to see more traditional faces from a major supplier.
With advances on iPhone/ipads with LiDAR and photogrammetry it should be easier to measure the volume of a bat.

Glad you liked the bats!

Robs custom was literally one of a kind, he was in the workshop on just the right day and he got something truly ridiculous!

Enjoy!
