their grading was :

1. Superbest - made from highest quality willow
2. G1 - made from some of the better willow
3. G2 - made from the good quality willow which we press in a special way to result in exceptional performance

The grading is from Anglian Willow. They have always had a Superbest grade above Grade 1. It is because Grade 1 can have some minor faults and Superbest is fault free. The upgrading of willow from the cosmetic to performance is down to the batmaker and them alone. In Fusions case the Superbest is a reference to performance and not cosmetic marking.

Pressing is down to the press, nothing else can alter it.

The lower grades are pressed along with some mixture of oil and some other liquids. Not sure what.

Some bats are soaked in water (SG) and some dry. My bats are wetted sometimes. It is only when the old machine is running because the main one is being repaired.
