Title: New Balance 2017/18 Australia Range
Post by: Keith Arthurton on June 29, 2017, 04:37:18 AM
Stumbled across this Australian website the other day showing 2017/18 New Balance range (albeit with filtered images). I'm a sporadic user of this site, so apols if this has been mentioned already.

GEAR:  https://saxonsportsfrankston.vendecommerce.com/collections/new-balance-2
SHOES: https://saxonsportsfrankston.vendecommerce.com/collections/all-our-shoes

Thoughts?

I like the white and red to bat stickers. A lot. Then again I have always liked NB'd stickers


Shoes look good to. But 3 sets of spikes? Which ones would a lazy slip folder need??

Was lucky enough to buy some of the CK10 ones off here not long ago.

Bought them as a tester having liked the look in pictures and I'll definitely be getting a new pair for next season, they're really comfy and light.

Damn was just about to go all out FKW with the red/orange gear but that white/red colourway is delightful!

Saxon are local to me, good range and good people. I find they usually have far better prices than GCCC and kingsgrove and also have free postage if you're in Victoria.

I Prefer last year's NB gear for the most part but the keeping kit looks far better this year. Its good to see them introduce a new range and take some chances.

The burn is a standalone model in only one grade with one set of matching softs. All supposedly lightweight.

The TC and DC ranges continue with very little change other than colour updates, white/red and yellow/dark blue being the new colours as you can see in the pictures. The shoes follow a separate colour scheme to the rest of the gear, you will have seen many players on TV recently wearing the 2018 shoes.

Thanks @Vitas Cricket for clarifying that says Burn - I had no idea!
As an aside, is there a reason for the TC and DC ranges, and behind the numbers?

Yes the 'R' in Burn is backwards for some reason.

Traditional Cricket
Dynamic Cricket

The above terms refer mainly to the shapes of the bats.

No idea why they chose the numbers they use, whats more confusing is each model in the respective ranges is the same price even with different numbers, DC 1080 and TC 1260 for example are the exact same grade and price.

Love the stickers on the face, not keen on the back or edges.

Finch/Ballance Colourway still my favourite.

Those stickers annoy me, largely because I bloody love the colours - but the stupid 'fade' effect looks like a microsoft paint inspired after-thought.

If they'd been solid all the way down as with the top half they'd look sweet!

Burn is a bit shorter in the blade, most in very light weights.

Why does the Kingsgrove instagram say full length blade?

Edit. I just re read it... Says Full length... Not full length blade

Options in shorter blades/longer handles in quite a few brands this season, can't say I'm a massive fan.

Had a chance to peruse the new season NB range today and was very impressed. I'm a fan of the stickers. The range certainly looks a lot better than the new Kooka range in my opinion.

Saw an exceptional DC1080 that was very big with about 20 straight grains. Expensive but impressive.

Do we know when the Burn gear will become available in the UK? Like the look and the idea of the range.

NB Aus stuff looks great in the flesh, especially the aesthetics of the Burn bats. I didn't look at the softs but can only imagine they also look class!

I guess the bigger question isn't when but *if* that stuff comes to the UK. The Burn kit is on the NB Aus site but not the UK one... though if Vitas already have a heads up on it it suggests it will land some time

Saw the range in flesh at Gccc the other day. The burn Certainly got my attention and was actually in my top 3 bats in the whole store.
