Bought one of these myself, mine looked a lot better than that, had 13 grains and 50/50 heartwood,
 

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder ;) Personally don't like heartwood!

Hope you are happy with it though! :)

^ I have concaved bats and have unreal ping! I wouldn't worry about it. As long as the concaving does not go below the edge level, there is no degradation of performance per James Laver.

The man whose bats I want to steal uses concaved bats: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_g3w9q4Cj8
What is the reasoning behind performance being effected as soon as the concaving sips below the edge?

My advice is don't prioritise inexpensiveness. Buy oakley crosslinks .

Listen to this man. Crosslinks are excellent.

That's an amazing statistic!! You expect spinning wicket in Sri Lanka and India but that's off the scale

Out of interest wickets have been reported for being sub standard....Jamaica abandoned game for those that remember that....has a wicket ever been reported for spinning too much?? Not in my memory wonder if has actually happened?

Interesting I don't think so... the pitches in the last Bangladesh tour were spinning from ball 1 and never got reported and I think there was an pitch in the recent SL vs Aus series that was crazy that Smith wanted reporting that didn't happen.

EDIT - it was India vs Aus at Pune and Chris Broad rated the pitch as poor as Aus won in 3 days by 333 runs

Lol..... it's an interesting one whether the pitch will be reported.

SA all out 124 with all 10 wickets falling to spin.

Total figures for spinners in the test are 19-287 off 87.4 overs. And it's Tea on the 2nd day.
