GM Mythos 2019 bat
« on: October 30, 2018, 12:53:25 PM »

Good morning all, so on this cold and wet morning i took delivery of my new for 2019 GM Mythos bat. I ordered from Rob @Six Sixes Cricket and the service and delivery time was superb as always.

So on to the bat, you may have seen this on the stock photos Rob shared with last week. I was originally undecided between the Mythos and the Noir and then even more so when i saw the 50/50 heartwood Noir and this Mythos as both stunning bats. Any was last year was the first year i used a shorter blade in the Neon and really got on well with it and found i had more power in my shots and that I didnt actually notice the shorter blade until i had been netting with it a few weeks after first buying a Neon, so i have stayed with the Shorter blade option, also the shape with the slightly higher swell position to the Noir convinced me. I think i made the right decision.

The bat has 10 grains that are almost ruler straight and are mirrored on the back of the blade as well, certainly another example of the Signature being one of the best value for money options on the market today. 32mm edges and over 60mm spine with a lovely thicker oval handle, the best handles i have ever come across in terms of size, shape and consistency have been the gM handles, not a fan or the terrain grip but that will easily be changed. Now similar to the Mana last year the toe is thinner and a duck bill shape leading to the big swell in the middle. Performance with an old ball is good but this does have a slighter firmer feel on first impressions but i personally have always found that after 2/3 net sessions my last 4 GMs have all opened up superbly and have no doubt this will be the same, Remember it has been confirmed that the lower end GM bats from 808 down are pressed slightly differently to higher grades but for the money its a small price too pay exotically if your have the time, patience etc to knock or and get your bat match ready. Personally preference only but no matter how much I spent or how high a grade iv never done well just taking out a brand new bat to a match takes a while to get used to it and trust it i feel.

The one change and only downside for me is that there is absolutely no bow in the Mythos what so ever its dead straight not even a slight camber, not sure if this will have any impact on my game so will have to wait and see but overall very impressed with the Mythos

Had a feel of this when I was at Rob's on Friday, have to say it's a lovely bat for the price - you've got a great purchase there @SOULMAN1012.

For anyone else looking at a GM similar to this speak to Rob about the Noir Signature he's got, picked up lovely and the looks were just as impressive for the price (presuming it's still there!).

Great review @SOULMAN1012 . Swayed it for me Mythos it is.

How is the pickup affected by the shorter blade? Are you using your usual weight?

All of my 540 length GM bats are 2.10 and pick up is very good, Neon of which I have 2 is the mid/high middle along with the Haze. My normal weight is 2.8 to 2.9 and I would say they are better in terms of pick up than my L555 length Zelos

Great looking stick. Hope it is full of runs for you. I'll admit to not really fancying a GM for a long time. I had one as a 14/15 year old that went like the wind, in fact i got my first 50 with that bat. This year they really do look to have done well.  Do people think that pound for pound they are better then the other big name brands (GN, TON, Kook,etc..)?

GM seem to be the forum favourite this year. Last year it was GN so next year could be someone else.
The signature in particular does seem excellent value for money though personally I prefer less ubiquitous brands.

Personally for me the signature seems to be the best value of looks and performance from the big brands, personally not seen a ugly Signature so far either in the flesh or on the forum.

However this year I have also picked up a couple of GN bats that I havent got around to sharing pics of or the reviews yet and its going to be very close I reckon between the two on which of GN or GM I personally go with this year.

Looks a nice stick, but it's a shame they've just renamed the Mana!

While it is similar to the Mana I don't agree that it's completely the same bat, the toe is thicker in the Mythos
