What, he said they test all of their bats and grade them on performance?
Can you point us to where he said that? Because it goes against their published grading system. Which is based on looks.

Page 4 of GM 2019 thread. I ask the question, he responds.

So he does. They grade them on 'their assessment of performance'.
Now if GM's assessment of performance is based on looks, then that's fine.
If it isn't, then why the discrepancy between what Edward says (graded on performance) and what their catalogue shows (graded on looks)?
It's either one or the other, isn't it? Unless GM believe the better looking the bat, the better the performance? Which we generally all believe is just not the case.

I'm beginning to think it's all a bit smoke and mirrors, frankly.  :(

Can someone get their hands on this? I was struggling with my 20 grain Pro bat last few games, and this might just be the thing to help me!

This will help buyer to decide what to buy. Looks or performance. Now we can actually compare performance of top ends and ugly looking cheap bats

So being as I have the same supplier for scuff, does that mean I get to start selling it as performance enhancing too?

How very, transparent...
