Their bats look promising but unfortunately they dont deliver outside of India. I would love to try one for myself.

Interesting that they claim oval top handle and squarish bottom handle is ideal. Always thought round top hand/oval bottom hand is ideal.

I've had an early Aldred XL and a SAF Hades bat with squarish bottom handles and I couldn't get on with either of them.

Be interesting to see how they fare against other brands. Or at least how the market greets them.

Square bottom hand feels horrible
Not many would favour that set up

These got posted about a while ago did they not? I'm pretty on board with the handle, but the aerodynamics claims are utter bobbins.

Marcus at affinity was always keen on a square bottom hand.

I had 2 Affinitys with square bottom hand and I really liked the feel. I barely hold the bat with the bottom hand so that probably has a lot to do with it.
Personally I would like to see far more ovaling at the top of a handle too. I think I would like their handle shapes.
