It seems the Brown stickers were stinkers. i roll the entire edge and these just separated. not sure about  the handle quality long term, but once knocked they ping really well.

My teammate has a 2.11 mids bat about a season and a half old. Pings everywhere and still in top shape (i maintain it for him)

I myself have a Mids MM power that i use for nets. Top quality willow. Didnt care for the stickers so removed them. Handles are good. Looks are about average. But performance is as good as any top bat ur likely to find. Imo theyr amazing value for money.

I'm a big fan. I've come across three and they all ping superbly well. Agreed on the comments on the stickers. Second to only CA I think in terms of Pakistani brands. You can also go custom with them in terms of shapes and handle choices

As a brand they are big name in International Cricket.

Many International- National Pakistani and Windies players can be seen using those bats (Just assuming that they are not using some other bats dressed as MIDS).
So as a brand they are well know.
As for the particular bat you are talking about I guess you are the best person to judge as you have seen it in person.

As the owner of the Mids that @sarg  has knocked, i cannot speak high enough of the performance.
If you are looking for a bat that is beautifully finished with immaculate polishing then probably look elsewhere, they do lack some of the finer touches.
However the performance is phenomenal. Only had a light throw downs with one and yet to use the other but they both tap up amazingly and should get better

For some reason the images are a bit small, just click on them and they will show the quality of the timber. I have been using mids for a number of years and probably wont stop either.

Sourced direct from Mids, they were the top of the top. THe one on the right was meant to be for Andre Fletcher of the West Indies
They weren't that expensive in regards to what other brands across the globe for their top of the top. Cant remember exactly what i paid
