it is quite a light bat  (2.7)  considering the specs it comes with. 38mm edges, 25mm toe and minimal concaving.

Wow, that's makes it numero uno! Very impressed, do you bat up in the order? 🙂
I thought it would be at least 2.10lb

ya mate, surprises me with the weight the specs it has. Must be a extremely low density cleft. I usually open the batting and also bat in the middle order occasionally depending on the wish of the captain.

A purist might say the grains should run straight through the toe?

agreed mate. that's what i hear from batmakers and purists as you that grains running straight and parallel all the way through the toe is a sign of better performance . However, how much truth is in that theory i don't know. have used bats that have horrible grain structure across the blade and the toe with exceptional performance.

Ah right I get you, no it's purely down to what I'm sent by my supplier

I'm not necessarily saying there's a correlation, but Hunts County didn't have many bats as good looking as those on their own shop shelves when I visited.

I've read that moving grains means more ping
How is it possible 23 grains to make straight into the toe?
Straight grains is a myth.

Similar to the theory a top bat weighing 2.12 feels more like 2.10? 🤔🤔

just have a look at one of the B3 bats listing on Ebay, both questions will likely be answered, its grade 1+ b3 bat :D

You can guess there is but in actual fact there isnt. Its used to promote better looking or low density bigger bats for bigger profit margins. Check wrights or any willow merchant and there is no G1+ grade but find a bat maker or sticker brand and they advertise G1+ as there top grade as any company can grade within the brand there own way.
