Similar to what I heard which is interesting

Some of those CEAT Sharma's are pretty large and look nice and I've always fancied a BDM. ZX fits in as they seem to do the type of thing I'm after but there isn't much at the top end around on the interwebz to judge on

CEAT bats are made by a lot of manufacturers similar to MRF. BDM could be one. I know that CEAT bats are also made by RS.

Undoubtedly yes. Just interesting ZX might be one of them. Wonder if ZX might sticker up BDMs or do their own thing?

A bit of digging in to the company info has Sidhant Mahajan as the director of ZX (same family name as the BDM guys), based in Meerut (same as BDM).

Still doesn't say anything about who makes the bats and the ones I saw were in the 200+ bracket not the OS type bats...

@gaurav23 where did you hear SG made ZX bats? SG seem to be making a lot of people on the forum happy at the moment...

From a dealer here who only stocks SG,ZX & Kook - Bharat Sports.

Was there ever a solid consensus on who made ZX & what the quality was like?

Thought I'd give one a go after seeing some on Instagram. Picked this one up for 80 GBP including postage to the UK. Must admit, initial impressions are pretty good, taps up surprisingly nicely!

I never really trust Online Stockists, saw these posted on Insta from another Indian retailer and the price was too good to refuse.

Great looking shape and grains . If the pressing is like the other brands that zx make then it should ping well too .
Fair enough that you'd be surprised to some extent re what youd recieve for such aa cheap price , especially when you see/hear some of the stories (ie the huge blackhole size pinknots under ceat stickers etc ). But , when you know that the company can produce great bats for these other brands too,  and knowing their bdm connection (who are a fairly reliable brand really) , then perhaps we shouldn't  be all that surprised at all . All I'd be a  bit tentative about, as I'd be with any brand ive not had eperience with ( particularly subcontinental brands i haven't used ) , is the longevity .
All in all seems a great purchase /bargain .

Is it just the pic or is the handle not straight?
