Why dont you try BlackCat Prodigy. Its in between a harrow and short handle bat plus you get the same great quality of a Shadow.

I've been using a harrow willostix stick for the last 2 seasons. Its 2.9 with 34mm edges and I can honestly say I can't tell any difference between that and a full size. Lots of mates have used it and haven't told them its a harrow and they not noticed either. Just said it saw inch shorter blade like my Uzi. Saved over 100 and there's no difference, its the way to go!

FYI - The prodigy sells for the same price as GN Harrow he is getting for... GBP 175 ... plus a bigger size than harrow...

Do we not all recognize that batmakers on this forum are better than these big brands.... better value for the money i  feel...

Crickfreak has a valid point ....but friend as I told you I am from india....and trust me there are plenty of good batmakers....the whole point is buying a gray nics which I have desired since my childhood....

Got this one at a little under $100...
And its one of the finest bats.

Grade 3 or 2(cant tell :p) ,12 straight grains 40 mm edges and 2.8

I know I am bringing this thread up from the dead...

I'm 5ft 4/5, and have been using a SH for 5 seasons maybe now... I'm 18, but there is definitely no sign of growth. I've tried standing in a grow bag but it just won't work!
I've always struggled with the weight and scale of SH bats, and never actually had a harrow. I just find balance an issue, I don't know whether this is because of my lack of height or not...
I'm currently using a Hunts County Clipper because it was the lightest bat in the shop, but do you reckon getting a harrow in the end of season sale is a good idea, just to try it out?

I found the small mens bat to be virtually identical to harrow, just more expensive? Thing is, if I can get a top of the range harrow for say 100  notes... I'm laughing.

My take on it is that harrows have a narrower blade, small men's have a full size blade in terms of width. This can vary by manufacturer though.

Newbury 7even and kudos are similar to Academy as the blade length is shorter. We have some CA bats which have shorter blade length. Also BAS harrow bats are like small men bats.
