its not a load of marketing rubbish  .... they are rare, probably 1 in every 500/1000 G1 clefts ..... so they come with a big price. They certainly arent exclusive though.

I dont know the exact number, maybe Procricket can give a better idea. They dont sell them openly as they are saved for the sponsored pros due to their rarity.

See the clefts on the top shelf in this pic.

Thats the crown willow shelf. And is probably the fullest ive ever seen it.
They dont usually have many at all in. Hence not really advertising. They need to keep the shelf full for when the pros knock.

It is probsbly only due to this forum the crown is as known as it is.

I think Smiley is 100% right in saying its only because of ProCricket getting a superb bat that he loved (and rightly so) that the forum is aware. Ive seen, held and tapped up a 1273 NB (think thats the no) and it was a very special weapon.

Last weekend (from memory) we had 4 clefts left which have been graded as Crown, the reason they are not openly publisised is that this week they may all go and not receive another one for 2 months.

And the fact there a few left is you never quite know who might come in and ask for 5.

Your right I brought them to the forum with the 1271 profiled bat.

They are very special but of course other have them some don't even out them in there special bats and at times people get very lucky

Bit of an update on this bat.

I had a net with it tonight after a fair bit of knocking in, middle is ok but quite small, I suspect like most English pressed bats it will take longer to open up. Handle shape doesn't suit me because I hold it quite low, very similar to GM in shape.
Its not a bad bat, but it's not a $700 bat either.

I still like to see all types of bats so I can tick B3 off the list. As I said bats are subjective, like a lot of things one mans trash is another's treasure. I've been a GN fan since I was a boy, I love trying all different bats but always seem to come back to them. I am getting a bat made by Stuart when I visit next month, I will post some pics to compare when I do.

Throwing this on ebay for any Aussie guy's that want to see what B3 are like in the flesh but don't want to pay full fair.

Not on yet, will do tonight. Don't think there will be many B3 bats on Aussie ebay.

There aren't :). I just want to have a look, but won't buy it, unless if it is at a ridiculous price.
