Would it be rude to find out much a cleft cost
Quoting user Tom in 2011:

"G1 cleft - �39.45
G2 - �29.10

Inclusive of fumigation and the like.

Expect to pay �80 for a completed G1 bat and �65 for G2"

Interesting so with the prices increase since 2011can we say 80 for grade 1 now and perhaps 65 for grade 2

I believe that GN and Kippax have their own private willow source and are not dependent on JS Wright. GN do not have separate grade levels (at least they do not publish it). GM does not allow handpicking of their bats as well (unless you are sponsored by them, I guess). In my experience, the lower grade bats are often pressed a little differently so that they take longer to open up creating the need or craving for more expensive models, which open up faster. Capitalism-- you can run but you cannot hide, much like a Malcolm Marshall bouncer.

Good shout the lower models have more moisture as well hence taking more time

The video suggests that or the guy commenting

I don't know exact figures for clefts but they're a good chunk less than that or last time I bought a G1 cleft I absolutely robbed the supplier.

Although this was previously disputed, I don't think there is any doubt that the big brands press lower grades differently. They also put cheaper handles in.

Most likely due to the source of cane being used by the larger brands. Not a major issue once the description is in plain view for all bat buyers.
