GM Noir 2019
« on: October 19, 2018, 12:27:10 PM »

After seeing the release of the new GM 2019 range i managed to pick up this beauty from Clean Hit Cricket. Weighs 2.9, and fabulous looking bat for 130. Was surprised by some of GM's grading for some of there others bats.

Where do the signatures fall into their grading?

I see it seems to fall between 606 and 707, I wonder what the idea is there, is it a 5 star dealer only job?

I do wish GM went the way of Kookaburra and really simplified their grading, the Signature's, Signature LE's, Players bats don't half confuse me.

Haven't they got about 8 grades which cover the top 2 grades of willow? Players Edition, Original LE, Original, Signature LE, 909, 808, 707, Signature.

Not trying to bring controversy but I read how a batmaker independant commented how the big companies have also many different profile shapes ie low middle , mid middle just to create sales

It was suggested the idea of a low middle and a mid middle is a con ..

Not sure what to think about that .. I do think bats have a lower middle on some but the opinion was to the contrary

Great bat hope you like it btw

I think I can guess which batmaker you mean... not one of his better theories. In any case companies offering consumers plenty of different choices is hardly a bad thing, not everyone likes their bats the same after all.

If he were right we'd all be using the same bat and there would be no need to have a million different companies offering equipment.

Out of interest who do you think it is

No names need to be mentioned but location of batmaker would give the gist
