2 UK made GN Nemesis
« on: November 09, 2017, 11:58:33 PM »

Here are pics and details of 2 Nemesis made by Chris King at GN UK factory. Sourced by Jake @ vitas. It all started when i sold a Nemesis 4 star to a friend and that changed his game a lot. Impressed by the low sweet spot of Nemesis he asked to get these made by Chris King himself. Jake was very helpful and patient in answering all questions asked and keeping us up to date with the progress of the bats.

After 2 months of wait here they are and these are on a totally different level compared to a off the shelf Nemesis. Pickup is very balanced, Finishing is good but not on par with Aussie made GN.

Few specs
Weight: 2-10 & 2-9.8
Edges: 38mm
Spine: 72mm
Handle: Thin semi oval

The last pic is the comparision between indian made GN handle (left) and UK made GN handles.

Well blow me down, that's the nicest pair of sticks posted on here in a long time. One decent profile shot wouldn't have hurt though would it.

Looks really nice! Can't beat a GN UK made bat ....

Since photobucket has pretty much crapped out, any recommendation?

@InternalTraining here is the ping test video. I would say it is very decent ping without any knocking.

Why settle for one when you can have two, right? :) Very nice!

My friend was kind enough to sell me one as i helped him through the process. Off the shelf Nemesis is a extremely bottom heavy bat but these picks up beautiful. It was a rare oppurtunity to get a Nemesis made by Chris himself so we doubled the order. Now i have got both Chris King and Stuart Kranzbuhler made bats .

Nope, these were asked to be made in 2-9 and as big as possible. These are bigger than off the shelf Nemesis with spines over 71 mm.

God I love Nemesises, (or is it Nemesii?)

Were these particularly expensive?

@FattusCattus I would say the price was very decent for their worth and much less than what ppl pay for a top end off the shelf bat specially after VAT removed.

Sorry, different handles? Do you mean both were pre-handled clefts but one was from India or just the handle fitted was from India?

Nice bats by the way.
