Wonder what the green handled one is for T20?

The green handle one also looks to have more concave going on.

Not sure how they make such massive bats with at this weight.

2.10 with 2 grips would mean around 2.7 without grip.

Certainly  Low density clefts and softly pressed.

The green gripped one also has the spine running down to the toe

And the darker shadow suggests it has more concaving. But hard to really tell without a photo from the toe up.

something a little odd with the green handled one. Had tape added on the grip and as Johnny says it's spine runs down to the bottom. Would also appear bigger with a higher spine, concaving possibly. Looks like that guy is stickering it up as well.

They don't necessarily have to be low density clefts or softly pressed but a pro bat in cleft form will weigh 3-14 or below which you will find in consumer bats its just the skill of getting the right cleft for the right shape. Don't know much about kooka's pressing but they could be softly pressed but that does not make a great difference to the size IMO
