I will take two!

Got to say the shape looks exactly like that used by David Warner and George Bailey.

Reluctant sale of said bat. Best performing bat ever, pings like a dream but it doesn't quite suit... aka, it's not as good as stated and I want rid but want as much as I can get.

I don't care if Don Bradman himself rises from the grave and made the bat, no piece of willow is ever worth 650. Ridiculous.

I bet some of them don't even look that good. I've never been big on good looking bats or ones that last, just so long as they perform from day dot. But for THAT sort of money, they would have to be the most incredible looking bats you have ever seen. But I have my doubts at offering 80 a year. Ohhhh but it has the word GOLD in it. Yep winner for sure...

As lovely as the graphics are and as well as I'm sure itwould perform, this is where fasteddie's H4L/WArsop argument gains most credence.

Personally, given Bradman's bat making reputation, that most certainly wouldn't be...

Don't doubt that for a minute John. I'm sure SK's bats are fantastic, as he makes a hell of a lot for the SH players, but this whole exclusivity thing really makes me laugh. I've never understood the whole concept of what attracts people to buy things that are limited run - is it purely one-upmanship?

Plus, we've got to a situation where RRP is nothing but an over-inflated number to fool people into thinking they're getting a great deal - Sports Direct have been doing it for years, and the entire coarse fishing market was doing it 15 years ago.

That is grotesque, a few guys at my club sent me a link saying they expected me to buy one, given I have bought a Legend in the past. I don't mind spending top dollar on a top quality bat like the Legend and the XXX I bought last season, but over $AU1000? No way! How long before it becomes standard fare for a bat to cost that much? Will it price out people who aren't able to spend that money on equipment out of cricket?
