It has to be said there seem to be quite a few GMs currently in the 'For Sale' section. Beware of the 'forum trend'?

I suggest taking up John's offer. You can't beat a bit of personal service.  I'm sure he wouldn't let you down.

For 150.00 you could pick up one of the stunning SS Ton Vertu's we currently have in stock. Alternately for 105.00 we have the GM 606's which actually sell better than the Signature model.

We have some photos of the Vertu's on our Instagram page. Its been a while since we last added a photo to the forum, so I can't quite recall how its done...sorry!

..for the purpose of clarity,i should expand;have played League cricket in Kent,the Cherwell League and now Sussex over the last 30 odd years and have used Gray Nicolls,for  the last 10 years or so Solitaire,as i got to know Roger well,a Choice and a Sypder for 80 off ebay,so would much rather support the smaller manufacturer!
My point being is i suspect whilst making things of real performance at the upper echelons of the price scale,the low-mid ranges simply don`t appeal to most league cricketers at the prices retail has them,certainly on the evidence of where i played...no slight intended on GM,but i simply never saw them!
I have perused Red Ink`s site a few times and the kit looks great,more power to the man !

Red Ink are quality.  I like GM too of the big manufacturers, and you see a lot of them up North, but not so many GN's - makes sense you would see plenty of them in Sussex.  Plenty of local manufacturers and stores down there for you.  Plan an off-season weekend road trip and take in a few.  H4L maybe?

If it was a Kaizen Pro,i think shop price would be alot more than 175,but hence that`s the risk of purchasing on ebay !.....maybe worth the Virgin Train fare up there to hand inspect before purchase

What would you recommend for 175 out of interest,Tom ?..............don`t see much around that price point nowadays
Personally, I would take the 175 and the train fare put it together and visit Tim Keeley (since he is offering visits now). Think you'll get a lot more value and you get to meet the best batmaker in the world. Alternatively, under 170 Chase might be worth a look. I think Six Sixes stocks some of their rang.e

Spyder is currently the most popular bat brand at my club as Gary's premises is just over the county border from us. I would say having had a hit with a lot of them over the last couple of years, that they represent excellent value for money.  Gary gets a lot of the lads pro-ing in the area using his kit (there is a picture of Dhoni using one of his bats with Reebok stickers on the front but the Spyder branding on the edges from a few years ago doing the rounds).

The bats are imports from India if that matters to you, but for the money, they are high quality. 

I would echo the point that has already been made though that this isn't far off the price for a new bat direct for Spyder.

Good call from Tom, Chase for that price are phenomenal bats. Teammate of mine has an R4 that's as good a bat as I've ever seen, and Rob at Sixsixes always has gooduns in stock.

Chase make a quality bat, and you can visit and spend a few hours there if you fancy the bespoke option

Good shout that, or a Neon with forum discount.

How much can you get a custom Hunts for these days?
The Vitas offer used to be a real bargain, not sure what you'd pay going direct.

@Neon Cricket would be my recommendation
