Maybe it's just a gimmick. I have used a numbered LE legend that was a dud, a mate bought a $95 County Crusader from Sportspower that performed better than the $750 Legend! I know that's just the luck of the draw I guess, but at such a price and being apparently limited in numbers, you would think EVERY one of them would be checked for performance.

As i only ever use soft pressed bats and being a G.N fan having  watched the video and listening to the claims i was tempted but

 i also know my local batmaker will make me the  best white willow straight grained bespoke pro bat for 360.00

Just outrageous. As above you can get the best willow available in the UK for 400 or under made exactly as you want it.

The Legend coming to the UK next year has an RRP of 700. Even the top of the range Test bats from GN are 500.

The Legend have been the best 200 clefts available... When you think about it, it is quite clever marketing: they can now only find 80 really "great" clefts but by bumping the prices up to a ridiculous level, we now accept that the regular Legend doesn't have to be that fantastic any more but will still be charged the same for it. Less bat for more money= brilliant for GN!

I had a look at these when I was in GCCC on the weekend. I picked up three and noticed that ALL of the Golds are numbered "1 of 80"... Not bad, is it? Pay $1200 and they can't even be bothered to number them sequentially!

Of maybe they have, another store has a few 2 of 80 etc so the 80 is more like 800!

Reviving an old thread. Have a bloke i use to play cricket with and his retiring to 2020 cricket only and is getting rid of his gold after a season and a bit of use. Going to look at it on friday he wants $300 aud for it.

Offered him my 606 kaha and $100 and im pretty sure its a done deal. Will keep everyone posted!

Interestingly I had a bloke from Pakistan tell me that he called GCCC asking to buy one and was told GN Australia only wanted them sold on the local market. That was 2 months ago.
