CX Are an extremely dodgy company STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS!
I purchased three bats. As I was aware of their reputation I let them know I was a bat maker, had played semi professional cricket, and I wanted to guards left OFF! The first thing a dodgy company will do is put on a toe guard so it disguises a grain sheet. By asking for no to guard I knew that they couldn't trick me.

I opened my package to see three bats all with toe guards. The grains didn't match through the shoulders and I contacted CX Cricket Straight away.

I asked for grade one willow, all I got was a thin slice of grade one willow covering up Kashmir willow bats. What surprised me more when I caught the company out was his response.

He wasn't apologetic, rather he was proud of what he called "new technology".

I don't see how cheating people is new technology. I've been charged over $300 USD a bat for absolute rubbish. They don't offer refunds, and the bats are unuseable and unsellable. I see a lot of people have had the same experience as me. Absolutely shocking.

At no point did they tell me they were going to do this. They are buying the cheapest grade willow and shaving a thin layer of good willow onto the top.

It is awful when someone gets ripped off and obviously I feel for you. But if you knew their reputation was bad, why in the world would you invest $1000 with this company? There are so many other sources of good bats, this doesn't make sense to me. Sorry but, a fool and his money...

I have been buying from AS factory for few years, pretty decent equipment for reasonable prices, they have a online store now
http://store.assports.com

All the bats had amazing balance.


I am telling you , AS Bats are an unsung hero.

These bats are WAY BETTER than any other Pak bat in my experience.

to @raviwest  - sorry to hear your story with CX.
I saw a few of these on Ebay with mind boggling grains and on lush willow - my immediate doubt was a thick sheet of English Willow glued on on top of Kashmir willow because the grains on the face and on the back didn't look the same in number and spacing.
 
You may not be inclined to it, but if you ever need a bat from Sialkot then AS Bat is your best bet. I know a couple of people in the factory who should take care of you if you ever to take this route. Let me know.
