Puma Ballistic - Adam Gilchrist shape (Julian Millichamp shape).
Actually Ballistics were made in India but the inspiration was Julians bat design for Adam.

Extremely oval handle - thick bottom and round smaller top hand, weight concentrated around shoulders for lighter pickup, extended sweet spot. massive spine and thin edges. Bat speed creating the power rather than the bat edge thickness.

Laver and Wood Signature
Low Density G1 with 12 grains
Secondary dried for a bigger size
Performance pressed
Oval C10 handle

I did enquire about a bat like this but according to James it wouldn't have lasted very long.

YESSSSSS! @WalkingWicket37 you know what I am talking about! It must have been made by Julian. I tried to get that shaped copied from India with mixed results. Here are the pics of what I got made (stickers are just cheap ones bought on ebay). The photos don't do a proper justise though. It is quite thicker in spine than it looks in the side view.

Worth saying Puma had more than one batmaker in Australia. Sam Miller was out there, perhaps Ben Thane too? From 2004 onwards Julian's designs stuck around, but he was long gone.
