Forum hype and fad at the minute like so many before and i have no doubt after.

Some on this forum chatting about bats have never batted long enough to understand a bat or use one properly. :o

SK makes a good bat but his arms must be tired if he made them all your buying...

that Shaun Marsh replica is the daddy though ... :D

If your a bat collector then fine and i know some are all horses for courses.

I guess im a cheapskate and jealous...

I second this! Plus I cant justify spending $900 on a bat just to play one day a week for 5 months. Last year, I Player total of 14 games and half of them were 20/20.

We each have a thing that makes us happy in our lives, for some that's buying lots or expensive  bats. I can think for more expensive and wasteful hobbies out there.

I respect your opinion mate. I personally cant justify buying a $800 warner especially in a league I play in, unless Warner comes and bats for me. I could definitely use a push in my batting average  :D

Totally disagree. I have had my share of long innings and I am more than happy to take my SKs with me to the popping crease.

If that's the case, I'd rather take the BEST piece of willow I can get my hands so not to waste my time/weekend!

Do you know how many weekends I see people ruin because of equipment failure of one sort or another? Same with bats. You take a crap*y bat to the pitch and you have a crap*y day.

I'd rather buy two top-of-the-line bats, guaranteed to perform, than 7 or 8 average joes that take forever to open up.

What's your time worth?

Does expensive bats guarantees a good innings?

Do these bats come with certificates of performance? Or with money back guarantee?

I have seen people who complain about their bats but cant even middle the ball. I saw Mohammad Yusuf Played a local charity game I person. He used one of the local players CA 10000 and scored 75+ on 35 balls. He didnt need a $800 bat to score runs. It is all psychological mate.

With all due respect pricing was never part of topic but since its been brought up. its like anything in life everyone values their money differently, It comes to affordablilty for some using a $900 bat is less about the money and more about the feel. Im sure we have been to an event or a place where some come in a corolla some come in a Benz. sorry for coming as a brat I personally would like to get the absolute best

They feel good in hand, picks up lighter being huge and give me confidence that my hit will cross boundary with ease. I also got many other brands but for some reason Aussie GN feels right in my hands.

Not all Aus Made GN's are $900aud, SK mades are only because he is the most sought after bat maker in the country and top 5 in the world, of course his work is expensive, but i would still say the non SK made bats are still a cut above the indian made bats from my experience and you can pick up an Aus made for around $400aud or less if you're bargain savy and patient.

As for the forum fad comments, its a possibility but if you make a consistently high quality product, at accessible price points that differs from the pretty generic offerings from most other large brands, why wouldnt people be talking about your products?

Amount of money I have spent in the last 24 months in bats (5-6 bats) since I got back to playing cricket would have fetched me one of these expensive ones.

Let's either blame it on luck or my competency levels  ;)

I know most of the discussion here is on the SK made big bats. But what about the other handcrafted ranges such as the AUS ultimate/prestige/elite etc. Are they SK made too..Anyone know their performance? I always wanted to get one SK but cant play with anything over 2-8/2-9, so trying to see if these lower weight options are worth it or not..

Meulemans got few xxx models in 2-9 and they are SK made.
