What I heard from Mueleman is that GN-AUS and SK will not produce any more big bats after the remaining clefts are used.

Nothing like time pressure to get a customer to drop hundreds of dollars on something ;)

Fair comment but these big bats aren't growing on trees either (or clefts felled. ;) ).

GN fell their own trees and cut willow to whatever size they like though, they can produce oversize clefts whenever they like.

I am one of the victims, went for GN Warner when I was told that the bats will be smaller this season.

Here is my small collection of "big" bats. All bats got over 45mm edge and few with 70+ mm spine.

The US quater is approx 24mm in diameter. All bats are under 3 lbs.

My humble bundle of extra big bats...



and a monster DSC vs a puny 40mm Larsons...



I have a few others that won't fit regulations but aren't as big so not worth posting.

What is the lightest of your monsters @Chad ?

Lightest is the Malik, which is around 2lb 11oz. Might take off the rest of the stickers, but I'm also getting a lightweight H4L Monster coming in anytime this week/next. :)


@DorsetDan that's a cracking collection, who made the net bat? Looks a gorgeous shape! :)


Unless you planning to turn Proffesional in October Chad none of those  Bats are illegitimate enjoy them for another 10 Years

Well, in my head I'm an absolute gun, so who knows? :D Looking forward to actually using these sometime next season/during Winter training!


@Shinpathy an unbelievable collection of GN bats! I thought I'd be struggling to pick out which of my monster bats to use first, but seems like you'll have even more of an issue! That DSC is something pretty special too!


@Calzehbhoy lovely collection there, what's the major difference you find between the Halestorms and the H4L oversized bats?
