Even a laver and wood signature is cheaper than that, and it is limited to 5 or 6, unlike 80. What a ripoff.

I love it when brands come out to this "limited to 80" or "limited to 50" nonsense. GN do it a lot, as have some of the smaller brands. Almost always that number is carefully chosen as that's how many they think they'll sell, if they thought they could sell 1000s of bats at 650 - they would.

That is the rrp on a GM Player Edition and a GN Legend already

I think, as we know, the RRP and price you charge are poles apart.

400 for a top hand made English bat doesn't seem to bad now :D

400 for a bat. A tin bath!

Only a few brands have the cheek/nerve to charge that.

You can get the same performance for 250.

The forum sponsors on here have better looking grade 4 willow than this, like the Gen x strike from Uzi Sports

That legend seems to have a better grain structure than the legend gold.

Had a look on the GCCC website and it was sold out already. Not a surprise as people looked at the SALE tag before realizing it was only $25 off (RRP) the most expensive bat.

Here is a video review for those who are interested. Basically, they are bats that aren't pressed much (if not at all). This bat is for people who want a bat that performs very well but is very likely to break the first ball you face. I bet there were surface cracks when they tapped it up!

Believe me, having tried an unpressed bat, they really, really don't work, so it is definitely pressed. Just ask Buzz... You need to press a bat or the ball just dies when it hits the face.

They get them really big. Could be overdried with a low density cleft. In the video, he said that they are really soft and should only be used in matches.

Maybe they picked the lowest density clefts possible?
