Best Value Bat?
« on: June 09, 2018, 12:51:40 PM »

What do we think the best value bats are, around the 180-220 mark?

It's enough for a Newbery 5*, a GM 808, a GN 500 Light or 600, an NB 660, a Ton Classic, Chase R7 and so on.

What do we think offers the best value today?

Out of the above mentioned sticks the GM 808 is the best value for money. UK made unlike most of the others on the list

Go to Hunts County or contact John at Red Ink, I reckon.

But it seems Soulman's usually offering something very decent and new (but 2nd hand!) around the 2lb 10 mark for not much more than a 100.

Absolute best value is a Ca 5000 if you can get one hand picked. Some of them are bonkers for ca 100

Zx , bdm, rs, some ss's can be found in highish grades in these prices ....so long as the source is trustworthy enough . Same goes for ca's , I've gotten 150000s and big bangs in this price range .
Red Ink , Arytek , bb all look like they sell value stcks in this price range due to conservative grading . Gm apparently also does this and hates heartwood , so a grainy but partly two toned gm might be good value too.
Maybe a vks ss or aldred butterfly would be a solid bet too.

Smaller brands seem to be more honest about the grade/ performance thing.

People are saying good things about Jedi and plenty of people report great experiences of H4L G2s.

I have long moved on from buying a brand new, off the shelf cricket bat solely based on brand names and/or stickers. IMO, one should follow this philosophy only if he is a collector.

You should put 220 in your wallet and visit various sports outlets to pick n feel various bats that are within your budget  - and possibly hit a few balls in the nets if they have the facility available.
