Not quite as good as the Laver which given JS Wrights picked 4 clefts to be auctioned for charity starting bids of $2000 you would expect to be the pick of the crop.

These arent bad if anyone is interested

Especially if your LH with that lively strip on the outside edge.

What about if you're right handed?
Some players prefer heartwood on the inside edge, while the majority don't care!

Ask a non CBF member their preference on heartwood and I'll bet the majority won't care, with a good proportion likely to ask "what's heartwood?"

Was only my personal preference for a nice even heartwood strip on my outside edge if you like the inside edge its perfect for RH as well

650 does seem a bit steep, lots of blemishes and not the straightest or most even grains we will ever see. I'm sure they go like rockets but I won't be paying that for one!

Not for 650 to be honest. If anyone is going to pay that much then they should be blemish free, even if they are going to be covered up by the stickers.
