Gm Chrome 909 Broken.
« on: September 21, 2017, 10:36:15 AM »

Bat is only about two weeks old. Knocked it in for a few hours decided to go down the nets for training and use it against some light throw downs. Doing a few forward defense shots and heard a terrible sound. Here is the damage




Im hoping prodirect get back to me about warranty or something along those lines. If not ill send it away for a quick fix and make it a net bat. Bit devo since my season starts this week aswell.

Not to get the pitchfork out or anything, but did that really happen playing a forward defence against light throwdowns..?

Had similar damage to mine earlier in the season, GM repaired it FOC without any query - even though toe damage of this nature isn't usually covered under warranty so kudos to them for that.

What I will advise is don't try and BS GM, we all know this wasn't just throwdowns and they're not stupid lol

The ball the guy was throwing down was as hard as a rock. I didn't really play at anything aggressive cause the bat was actually super soft. I had my mana in the net with me for when i wanted to go hard at the ball. Im not super mad about it. It's the first time a bat has done this to me and ive had 20+.

Yeah that'll explain it then - likewise most warranties have disclaimers regarding use of cheap balls, my personal pet hate! If you're going to spend hundreds on a bat then 20 quid on a ball isn't a big ask (appreciate it's not your fault on the ball!)

Yeah was super annoying cause i told the bloke i had a bag full of good balls (im the opening bowler so always have quite a few in my kit at all times)

Gm are excellent with repairs, some of the balls I see at nets mainly Indian or Pakistani balls seem to be very hard..a bit like a hockey ball

I don't think modern bats can take it it's just very difficult filtering out the rock hard balls
Good luck with the repair

When you say you knocked it in, how long did you spend on the bottom 4/5 inches of the bat?

Never agreed with taking a new bat to nets.

So you'd rather use a new bat for the first time in a game instead? Sounds like a recipe for disaster personally - just look above for what a new ball could do to a bat!

But you're an opener so would be using it against the new nut in a game anyway?

Surely using it in the nets against older balls and some "more friendly" bowling would be a better way to play it in than against an opening bowler steaming in with a brand new nut?

Of  course it could be a disaster but  batting against hard balls coming off the hard surface nets for me is the bigger risk              seen two many guys fail to consider the type of ball they use at nets which when your down the other you have no control over..Also once lent a  nearly new bat at indoor nets and the guy slammed the  toe of the bat down that hard onto the  floor the blade snapped in half.

More freindly in the nets ? My teammates know I can't resist the hook  so they  whiz the ball past my nose.
