Yeah I am suggesting to contact the bat makers, though I donot think BAS will be interested in an individual order.

But u can certainly find them on facebook and try to contact them there. Most of the Indian bat makers can b reached out through Facebook(Same goes for BAS,BDM, RS...).
Try during 12:00-19:00 IST

Rest is upto u.

Reading the comments on here made the conclusion to go for cheaper pinging Indian bat from a UK retailer doesn't seem worth the risk of importing from India .

Bas looks good though.

SS and SG are among the 2 most reputable companies in india. Not to mention SG also make all the kookaburra bats. If personally i were to get a bat from india i would go to one of these 2

Problem you would have is paying the delivery cost, then the import tax. Could cost another 100 quid on top of the bat

Thank you :)

Why the bdm out of the bunch ?

The BDM was about 2lb 10oz, picked up slightly lighter but had a beautiful sort of pendulum feel to it's swing, and the middle on it was superb - ball absolutely flew off it.  Managed to clear a pavillion with a huge six once, only to pick out the bonnet of my own car.  Handle was round though and quite thin - I've only got small hands so that suits me - guess it depends on your preference in that regard.  In terms of performance though, not had an Indian bat as good yet - in fact the only one I've had better was a GM that eventually opened up and was superb.

Unless you get a Slaz like you did on the cheap - effectively a grade 3 New Balance DC that would be 180+ for 50 - made by Sondhi and great quality.  Likewise you can get cracking deals on Kookaburra at 3d, and other places probably, at the end of the season without having to import.  Did notice that onlinestockist are now selling the Deluxe Sports (DSC) bats.

SS used to be good years ago, even now the willow/performance is quite good but handles have gone ridiculously thin that you would need an extra grip over what you normally use which would put the weight way above what you might be used to..not to mention the poor handle qualities as well...

I agree with the handles it's rediculously thin.

I'm thinking perhaps a cheap ton now they do just a good a job from what I seen ping everywhere .

Alternatively maybe a new balance in the sales ....

There are some very good smaller vendors in India, youve just got to know which ones.

I have had pro bats from ton and pro bats from other vendors which have been better

I will say try RNS Larson. I am not saying its best as i haven't tried all indian makes to compare so cant say which is best. Rns bat i have is as my match bat is amazing. One of forum member has seen it in person and did say its good bat and he knows lot more about bats than me.

People have mixed review about rns but that's more to do with owners attitude i think. I had bad experience with Robinson not bat but other goods thats topic for another day.
