Saw a 707 in my local DW so picked it up for 96. Feels as light as a feather, quite grainy on one side, heartwoody on the other.

Interested to find out how it goes.

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.

And why not top grades? Some of the OLE's ive seen over the years have been lovely.

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.

I knew this wouldn't sell. Just been back in the shop. A little devious behaviour from myself and I pick3d this up for the grand total of 55.
