That many grains shouldn't be allowed!
The heartwood is where I like it too, I'm just off to "knock in my wood" while i examine the picture more closely...

Gotta be over 20 grains on that bat on the far right!  :o Looking at these stunning NB bats is doing nothing for me trying to resist buying a new bat!

The one on the right is very similar to the SS gladiator I have, although the heartwood is on the right handers outside edge.

If they were made where I presume they were made, then they have got hold of some serious clefts right now!!

They look far too good, Especially when I'm trying to resist purchasing a new bat for the season!

Superb looking bats, although is it just me or does the square sticker on the back at the toe not just make them look a bit naff. Apart from that they look great

Is that not lower down just so that the Red Bull sticker can be pride of place?
