Title: GN 2019
Post by: Tom_90 on August 31, 2018, 08:11:38 AM
Being revealed via instagram today, first one at 9.30!

What do we reckon for the returning classic?
Title: Re: GN 2019
Post by: Buzz on August 31, 2018, 08:40:50 AM
The high middled shockwave is the first bat.
Blue lightning stickers look good (in my view) but the shape isn't really my cuppa.
Title: Re: GN 2019
Post by: Tom_90 on August 31, 2018, 08:45:03 AM
good colour scheme. Looks like they are going back to the more traditional style stickers rather than the ones of the last 2/3 years

I am certain they will.

I think we will see..
1. High middle range
2. Traditional/low middle range
3. Funky shape range, some form of 4xscoop action I suspect
4. Powerbow

Quite like the look of that - imagine the high middle means it'll pick up beautifully.

Have to say the videos theyíve done for the launch on Twitter are bloody brilliant. Hats off to whoever created them.

Really liking the design work thatís gone into the new range, GN have clearly taken note of what the current market wants.
