I'm not buying any bats ta moment but would have def bought that! great condition!

Looks like it's maybe been used once, saw the same seller also sold one in mint condition earler, albiet a nasty non oil one. For 40 quid these are both lovely.

I've still got a GM Cannon original in the garage, one of the best bats I owned. Still original stickers but delaminated beyond repair I think. Most of the middle is stuck to the scuff sheet, otherwise repair I'd get it repaired as would love to try and use it in a net again just for old times sake.

Re: Vintage Bats polyarmoured?

Not sure if this is really a vintage bats issue, but does anyone have experience with the GM Cannon 303 bats? Were they a decent blade? Looks like they retailed around 160 at the time.

 The one I have is heavy, nearly 3lb, but is unfortunately poly armoured.

Has anyone tried removing polyarmour? Can it be sanded off? Are the grains of the bats underneath usually a mess?

303 was the first English willow bat in the range, with the 202 and 101 being Kashmir. Decent cheap sticks I guess.

Here's one I've just got hold of :hunts county rapide. It's brand new with factory scuff sheet. Does anyone know roughly when these were made and what quality they are? It has 11 grains but a bit wavy through the toe and some blemishes. Not sure how it knocks up :

I am going with early 2000's looks a decent bat.
