SS Ton 2 new Bats - Professional & Maximus
« on: March 31, 2016, 08:35:29 PM »

Hi guys/Gals,
Recently Purchased 2 new bats from Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, India
SS TON Professional and Maximus
Pro has 9 Straight Grains, Minimal concaving, 40 mm edge, 60 mm Spine, Weight Unknown but might be nearly 2.11lbs
Yeah it has some spots and there were other options available but its was performing well near stickers too.
It has been oiled and currently I am knocking it to prepare for Sunday matches.






Maximus Has 13 Straight Grains, nearly 42 mm Edge, 62-63mm Spine, Weight Unknown but might be nearly 2.11lbs
There are few spots on willow but it pings just awesome, Deep Sound and nice bounce. Really looking forward to play with it but it will come after Professional










And sorry for images, Just that I don't have better camera available

Its a second grip actually, just to balance the weight and also I prefer a little thicker handle than SS original handle. Also I thought when One is upright, I should also balance the Grip by putting it upside down :D. I might actually try third Grip.
Professional does not have any extra grip yet but it will be after knocking. Ill also stick toe guard, anti-scuff sheet and edge tape after the bats have been knocked in. So weight will be increased on both bats. Extra grip will be required then.

Well that's the advantage of buying in India. Same SS Maximus was sold by popular US retailer for US$ 399 about six months ago. Here we have someone buying at half the price !!

@Sonic - Very nice bat. Keep updating this thread with more pics, once you finish your knocking and start playing matches with these bats. People here love to see before and after pics ...  :D

Well what I have seen that, outside India the same bats are sold at Maximum Retail Price and may be a little more that is also after discount. In India we get bats from retail store with at least 20% off and if a person is insistent then they can get a little more discount. However I didn't get these bats from a retail shop. They are from SS factory and I bought them at wholesale price with the help of some local contacts. Others won't be able to get them at this price easily. On the down side we cannot get hands on custom made bats like H4L, and brands like blackberry, b3, blankbats here in India

About bat's performance, I have played with professional and it was very responsive from first ball. Hit a long six (nearly 85mtrs+) over mid wicket effortlessly which was my first stroke which scored from this bat, and I am/was very satisfied with the bats performance. Since then I am failing with form. Another friend tried this bat and have since hit 9 sixes including an inning of 60+ runs with six 6's in 22-23 balls. So pro is delivering the promise.

Maximus is still in the bag and will take it out in big matches if I get chance to play one

I also bought some Softs and a bat from BDM factory but there is no section to share pics for BDM

There is a general section called "bats". When we usually have a brand which is not listed as a separate category, we post it there. Same for gloves, pads and other softs as well .. Post pics and i am eager to see what BDM has to offer.
