I've bought 4 genuine Puma Iridium 6000's at a fair price, will sell a couple if anyone wants one. I don't have the Blue grips as the UK versions have the hexagon grip and they do not go on sale until March 2009. I can get the Oz stickers from the manufacturer now and the UK stickers at the time of the release as above.

I was also going to purchase a genuine Puma Iridium 6k bat but the oz iridium shape is awful shape and I've used many puma's rebound is no way near as good as CA top level bats.
For same price as the CA and puma stickers cost a lot I could have purchased a genuine puma iridium 5k bat but CA bats are far superior compared to PUMA. c pics above

how much for the Puma Iridium 6K?

Are these with the carbon core handles? What weights do you have?

Majid, I'm not sure if you have tried the Sam Miller Oz version but he does make a good bat, the UK versions of the 6000 are very well made and the Iridium is the best shape since the original Ballistic. I'm not sure why you would prefer an inferior manufacturing process and kiln dried willow unless you are a Pro and not paying for your bats. Having used a load of CA's from the lowest grade up to genuine Pro bats I'll stick to the real thing.

I'll post some pictures later, they don't have carbon core.

Obviously it'll be far superior than a genuine puma than.

I'm happy to sell at trade cost 170.25 plus VAT so 200 plus postage. They will retail 320 when released to the public on 01 March 2008.

Will add photo's later.

This is the only one I've labeled, not bad considering it is handmade in England and only air dried grade willow without 10/10 ping as found with CA bats.







I may take the Puma labels off and replace with CA 5000 ones from Australia...
