The Powerbow (2018) I have from @Six Sixes Cricket is an unbelievable shape. It's one of the special editions Rob got and I can't rate it highly enough. It's a grade 3 but is just superb! It's so good my grade 1 Salix doesn't get a look in and I'm considering selling to buy a higher grade Powerbow.

Hi All,
I guess with all the new restrictions on the bat dimensions and most pro players looking for full profile bats.
Its really hard to see if bat makers can experiment too much going forward.

There will be minor tweaks here and there but I donot see major changes coming in. With big hitting being the need of the hour and players donot  want to lose much wood in the hitting zone I assume the shapes already
in the market are here to stay long unless any big player like kolhi, Smith, Root, Kane starts using a funky style bats.

As per me most of the bats profile became Iconic because they were being used by Icons of the game.

Possibly, I've not seen a standard one to compare mate. This one is just so perfect tho. The spine is almost rounded as there is zero concaving!!

I'd say the SS Ton shape with the duckbill is quite iconic

I was a massive fan of the Aus Gray Nics F18, unfortunately I must have been the only one because they went out quicker than David Warner in a Canadian T20 match.

What made the Aus version special?

Just thought I'd specify, as there are often differences in the same bat made for a different market, the F18 I had was convex,  mid to high middle, 39 mm edges and came in at a whopping 2.6. it was just so different to everything else being released and I absolutely loved the shape.

Screaming Cat series 1 shape, or is that more of a cult classic rather than iconic?
