Whilst looking in DW sports this afternoon I car across this grainy 707. Pickup was lovely too.Ive never had a GM but was quite tempted with this.

Looks good. Personally not a huge fan of GM's but many people rate them so they must suit a lot of people.
Is it me or are 909's, 707's and 505's less common than 808's, 606's and 404's?

It was 120. Would guess definately no heavier than 2.9. My only gripe was it had a thick lower part of the handle were as I've got used to my thinner Gray Nicolls handles recently. I didn't buy it because I bought a new SS bat just after Xmas.

That looks stunning for any grade bat - was tempted by the zelos as it picked up lovely but opted for a neon as I like a higher middle.

You have to go back and get that surely!

Spoken to the bat makers at GM a few times. Their view is that heartwood is harder therefore takes longer to knock in. Why would you want to have a weaker area on your bat? Appreciate this isn't a shared view.
Anyway the bat looks great. There are always some cracking GM lower grades in the shops. They don't allow retailers to hand pick and are very hard n their grading. Best of the big manufacturers for non top-grade bats I reckon.

That looks very very similar to an Icon 606 that I picked up a couple of years back, mine probably has a bit more speck though. I'd have bought that on the spot - the GM handle shape feels great after a little while.

I might have another trip down this weekendand take my scales with me.if any of my bets come in on saturday I may even snap her up. I guarantee it will still be there. No one ever seems to buy bats from there with romida 2 miles down the road.I remember them having a GN fusion for years
