Thanks Rob! (GN Purchases)

(1/4) > >>

Chad:
Big thanks to Rob for sorting me out with some very nice sticks from GN. This isn't a review, but just a wee thread with pictures. A separate review will be done for the Custom, and probably also the Elite, as I suspect those will be the ones people are the most interested in hearing about. :)

The Pro Performance is actually a Custom, based on @Six Sixes Cricket Rob's own Custom. (That was based off a Varun Chopra bat - http://custombats.co.uk/cbforum/index.php?topic=45276.msg729924#msg729924) This one is a diet version of that, with some concaving and reduction in size, and weighs in a 2lb 11.75oz, and the pickup and feel is sublime. It's also exceptional when tapping a ball up - @thebigginge has certainly worked his magic on this one...

The other bats, well, when I was waiting for the Custom to be made, these arrived, and Rob just teased me with these, and of course, I caved. (I was actually only looking for an Elite or Ultimate as a potential accompanying bat to the Custom)

The reviews will follow at a later date, but a few points -


* This Powerspot I believe was made in the UK. Wonderful bat, really well made, but with the Elite being a very similar and more imposing bat, and the Ultimate also being in the range, I do suspect that the Powerspot might not be available for next season. (No rumours or anything, just observations on profiles)
* The Elite is excellent. It also uses the same binding technique that is associated with Aus made GNs. (With the medical tape and binding at the shoulders) I do believe these are made in India, just that they've adopted this binding technique for some bats. (Will try to get some pics)
* The Powerbow and Maax really surprised me for budget bats, both in looks and responsiveness. Powerbow response is a bit better, especially low down, while the Maax shape affords a slightly more forgiving higher portion of the blade.
* GN Robertsbridge Customs are really quite something...Here are some pictures...





































Again, a massive thanks to Rob for dealing with this. We had actually discussed a Custom way back when he first had his made. I just couldn't believe how good his one looked, and had serious bat envy! This one, although not as large and impressive, just ticks all the boxes. :)

Sorry if this is rather meh, it's late, but felt like I should probably get the ball rolling on the backlog of bats/threads I want to make!

InternalTraining:
Which one is the pingiest?

edge:
Consistently underwhelmed by stock GNs these days, but that custom is lovely. Rob's one is unreal, so not surprised!

Jimbo:
Love the stickers on the Elite. The bats GN have brought back all look so stylish.

richyreed:
Love these posts @Chad, thanks for taking the time to do them!
