Are bats with heartwood considered grade 1 or 1+? Are there any advantages or disadvantages?

Re: Best Bat Grains thread... And Warsop visit
« Reply #1022 on: January 13, 2020, 03:56:08 PM »

I was always told you wanted the harder heartwood on outside edge so the edge doesn't split if you edge off. I had a really good visit to Warsop on Friday in Essex and he told me that pros do this because they *don't* expect to edge it much, and heart wood is more brittle.

Any clarifications please?

BTW I would really recommend visiting Warsop. They are really old school bat makers, grow some of their own willow, and showed me some beautiful clefts. They also said they will make a custom in any shape required, I presume for the same price as their normal range. Some great looking bats on the shelves as well. I think it's a shame we don't see so much of them on the pro circuit, or can CBF members identify some players that use them? I didn't see any on the Essex line up when I watched them last year at Fenner's. Mostly GNs.

I did see one monster bat which was both long blade and long handle. Should be ideal for me size wise, but I didn't like the feel of it at all...

I always thought it was because the Heartwood was slightly harder and would take some of the pace (minimal) off the ball should you nick it..
