A short while ago Buzz had posted a pic of his KG bat that he got from Amit (i12breakfree) and looking at that bat stirred some old memories :). I have used KG is past to just bash it around so thought i would contact Amit and see if he had any extra hanging around as he had just returned from India and I knew he purchased more than just one bat ;). Anyways chatting with Amit was great, he sent me pics of Pro grade, grade 1 and grade 2 which all looked great. I decided to ask him to mail me the pro-grade one but he had already sold his to a friend but offered to get one ordered for me. So here it is in just a week from India to Canada :)

This bat weighs 2.11 and is pictured with H4L monster that is 3lbs. H4L is obviously bigger (spine) but it gives you a very good idea of how big this KG bat is for 2.11 and no/minimal concaving and I love the shape, pick-up could be better, not the prettiest but pings really well off the mallet and bouncing the ball. Surprising thing is finishing is top notch, silky smooth perfection. Here are some pics :)..

Wow! I don't care about aesthetics but that is a remarkable profile. I'm astonished! Brilliant brilliant profile! I haven't seen a bat which has impressed me of late on CBF but this is truly impressed me.

Few questions if you don't mind..

If you don't mind me asking, how much did it set you back? Is it based on SRT's profile? Hows the handle (thick or thin)?

It is sensational bat mate! Amit......:(

I know Uzair, when Amit sent me pics of the one he had i loved it but did not realize its size till i got it last night. This is the most expensive bat in their line up and still only cost $225USD (120GBP) shipping included to Canada, now Amit might have done me a favour as a friend and got a deal for me but even if it was a little more its still a steal..

I dont think this is the SRT profile but not sure, very similar to my RPC shape but bigger, most indian companies have 1 or 2 shapes and usually just continue to produce that same shape....this is the pro-grade and it pings very very very well...now when they say pro-grade it might just be their best pinging bats but they gurantee it will ping well if you buy pro-grade

oh also the handle is very similar to off the shelf GN bats in terms of size and feel....Amit has gotten me some fantastic deals already :)..including an awesome India ODI jersey

That is HUGE! Mind you, that H4L is huge for 3lb as well IMO. I've seen plenty of bats that are 3lb+ that aren't that big! The handle on the KG looks a little thin, but nothing a thick spiral or double chevron grip won't solve! 8) Is it an oval handle? I can't quite tell from the pictures, but it looks to be slightly oval at the bottom! Could be very wrong here. :P For 120 though, it's an absolute steal!

PS. I was going to ask if it was Canadian Willow, as a joke, as I have seen plenty of people here do that. What is the story behind that joke? :-[

Haha Chad canadian willow is a whole different story and trust i did try to find it but gave up, it does exist in some parts of canada but not suitable for bat making as its a different salix alba...

As for the handle its almost identical to my GN Scoop (which might be made in India too) not very thin but not thick...definitely not oval...all round :).. you are in Singapore right? not sure what the shipping to UK or elsewhere would be as India to Canada/US is very cheap..
