GM or GN for consistent performance in my opinion

I would add BB to that list

I have a couple that could fit your bill

So much good advice! Obviously I'd ideally want them around in a shop,  but that isn't possible right now.

GM, Ton, Jedi, BB are my favourite options so far I think.

Get in touch with @Neon Cricket

Aren't these made by one of the brands already mentioned? Is it not cheaper to go direct?

I have long moved on from buying a brand new, off the shelf cricket bat solely based on brand names and/or stickers. IMO, one should follow this philosophy only if he is a collector.

You should put 220 in your wallet and visit various sports outlets to pick n feel various bats that are within your budget  - and possibly hit a few balls in the nets if they have the facility available.

Absolutely the right way to do it.

I've seen some shocking GN bats in that price range.

Gray Nicolls I agree not always the best looking but ping wise always very very consistent iv always found and all the ones at our club 10 or so play well.
GM lot more generous on grading and looks

Those are off the shelf shapes, if you speak to @Neon Cricket you can get a custom shape.

Whatever route you go down the bat will be top quality

Is that really the cheapest way to get such a thing nowadays?

I remember when Jake could get you a Hunts custom G1 for ten pounds, a packet of Frazzles and a half-eaten Curly Wurly!
