To be fair, yes those two pictures do look different but then there were subtle differences in shape between Indian made and Aus made Atomics for the current season anyway. I'd wager the bottom pic is just an Indian made one. See post #126 here: http://custombats.co.uk/cbforum/index.php?topic=42799.120


Pretty certain this isn't Indian made as this is probably a pre-production sample.

Its just a picture on a website, I wouldn't read too much in to it. Seems to have more in common with the Indian made profile from last season in terms of bow and middle position. Last years GN's changed a lot early season anyway so who knows what will be on the shelves until they drop :)

@Aussiecollector can you give us a short description of how the bat feels and what is comparable in the old range? Wouldnt have a bat from the new range with a big bow? Not a powerbow....some other name  ;)

@Aussiecollector can we have a new thread, cataloguing all of your prize willows? Every photo you post has a whole host of interesting bats in the back of it!

Are these Indian made? As it only states 'designed in' on the stickers?

The only noticeable between Indian & Oz made are the handle cap and the use of Zinc Oxide tape.

Really depends on the grade. Assuming we are not talking about Readydead, I mean readypress. Indian made ones for the Aussie market feel a tiny bit softer. Id say the hydralic presses are calibrated the same. Difference is adjustments for willow moisture. Both have the same characteristics of feeling medium/hard pressed and once oiled and played in they get up and boogie.
