That's a stunning looking bat Rob, absolutely gorgeous.

The grains are top notch, the shape is lovely and those stickers are perfect. I've never liked the funky back stickers GN put on for each model, always think the chequered bars and red stripes look so classy though.

If it plays as well as it looks you'll be alright ;)

Specs are, 2.11, 40mm edges, 71mm spine, no concaving, 42mm handle thickness inc grip

What's the max spine sanctioned by MCC laws? 65 mm?

"Bat edges will have a maximum allowance of 40mm and bat depths must not exceed 67mm (60mm plus an allowance of 7mm for a possible curve on the face of the bat) ..."

Good job Rob doesn't play professional cricket then! Not sure our local league reps would know a bat gauge if you threw it at them so wouldn't worry...

Looks mint @Six Sixes Cricket , you're a lucky man. Don't suppose you managed to sneak that cleft with the pressing crack out? :D

Yes, I did mean 'illegal' rather than illegal.

^ Well, I am not concerned about that. Issue is that bat makers had had stopped making any bats thicker than the MCC sanctioned max thickness. So, it's pretty nice that there is atleast ONE bat maker in the world who is willing to make a higher spine bat than MCC regulations.

We got pictures for it too. :D

Perhaps ironically, the very same batmaker is a strong believer that the big (volume) bat = big power idea is a myth.

I joked about it with him at the Oval Test.

Superb shape on this bat and looks a really good option for those wanting a custom made bat. My team mate has two 700 quid GN scoops and whilst that's not something I would buy they are fantastic.

GN seem to have got back in the last couple of years some really meaty and good looking bats. That's great to see as some of us grew up with the brand.

its a custom made bat, The bat was made to how I wanted it. Alex asked if I wanted it to go through a bat guage, and the answer was no. Ironically I cant even get the shoulders through the guage. If I wanted it to be lighter then I would of have to sacrificed the spine height and volume in the area I wanted the most volume.

there wasnt any scoops, but There are some huge dynadrives that are in a pile which I think Alex is going to take with him around the country to sell when he does the road show

Might just be to old to turn pro 😂.

Thats my biggest regret, not striking a deal for the broken cleft. Hopefully its still available. Alex let me know 🤞🤞
