Looks lovely, especially for a G3! :) How much did this one set you back and how do you find the finishing? It looks a lot better than most of the M&H bats I've seen!

An update on this bat, now that the season is in full swing.

Firstly, in my opinion, this did not appear to be a piece of willow that had travelled around the world nor from the shaping was mass-produced, just a sense from seeing and feeling it in the flesh. The finishing on it was very silky indeed. I have owned Indian and UK bats from most of the top brands and this one was as good as any in terms of finishing.

I had a 2016 Newbery Kudos SPS in a similar weight to compare before they were both knocked in and the M&H was clearly superior in performance, it also sounded much better, more mellow than the sharpness of the Newbery.

I had the pleasure of using it for a short while and the performance is very good indeed. (The Newbery is in line to be knocked in and called into duty soon).

Too many bats though and with it catching the eye (and ear) of a team mate, I have sold it on. He scored a 50 in his first innings, his first for a long time.

Am passing through Taunton in August and if there was another example like this realistically priced for the willow grading, I would not hesitate to buy another M&H.

^ The finish of this bat looks very similar to my Amplus and it was made by Keeley. It's a monster of a bat and hit some giant sixes with it!

I am sorry to hear that you sold it, but those bats are rare now.
