Has anyone used or seen anyone using Puma Ballistic 6000? How does it perform? Where is it made?

I had a Puma Ballistic 5000 given to me for repair in 2012. It was by far the best bat I even had! It had a sticker saying Made in Australia and also had a hole -plugged with a dowel at the end of its spine. The distinctive oval handle shape meant that it was JM made. I contacted him about it and he said although ballistic model originated in India, they used his Adam Gilchrist shape as inspiration. Also upon hearing the specifics about handle and the dowel hole, he concluded that it must be one of his made.

The bat itself wasnt any good looking with quite a bit of imperfections and knots etc on the face but boy! Didnt it hit the ball farther and wasnt it supremely balanced. At 2 lb 8 oz, it felt like a toothpick! (Another quality of JM bats). I got a replica made by L&W without the dowels and with dowels but nothing comes close to the original Puma Ballistic!
