New MB Malik Custom Cricket Bat (H Pro Stickers) & Bubber Sher
« on: November 29, 2018, 10:54:23 AM »

So i had family member who gifted me money for the bat, i did not need one. ( Ping video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvwoUZR4FNg )
After recommendation from a friend and a reference through him to someone close to MB malik guys, i contacted him and told him that i wanted a canon of a bat, dont care about looks.
Went through the cleft selection process on video call.
selected one which turned out to be their highest grade one (costs heaps less than other sub continent brands).
i wanted:
2lb 9 to 2lb 10 oz with light pickup and good balance.
fuller profile
9+ grains preferably straight through the toe and back.
thicker more rigid toe.
mid middle position.
40mm edges and 65mm spine.
Bat was prepared for me within a day under MB malik's owner's supervision.
I was given a ping test too once it was ready and in video it pings crazily.
Waiting for it to arrive to see how it goes.
I will let pictures speak for themselves.
as i was paying shipping so added one of their bubber sher bats too (again full profile with duckbillish toe ) costs less than a junior bat.
i will be removing edges stickers from mb malik, too loud.

I got a very special price and the person who helped me get it (he does this part time) forbad me to disclose it as it could effect his business.
but what i would say is that way way less than what i would pay in Australia for similar or more inferior looking stick and that including the shipping, fumigation etc.
the bubber sher in the pic has 38mm edges and 65mm spine too.

The H Pro is in the 150-200 Pounds range, where as the bubber sher should be around the 70-80 pounds mark. Local prices here in Pakistan.

I actually paid the price for a plain bat and this cleft was from their gold platinum edition range.
At the end they decided they they can put some stickers on for some advertisement if you say so.
As i paid price for a plain bat they only added h pro stickers.
If you ask them for a plain bat without stickers, you will get lower price.

Good to see some recent activity on Pakistani bats, them bats look lovely.
 
As previously mentioned I'm pretty loyal to AM. I've been offered a bat that was destined for a pro (sorry no sharpies and not sure I am allowed to say who it was for lol) and hopefully should be on its way.  They are not as big as the other brands and not as well known but I've always been a fan of their bats and a bit bias!

They have always been reasonable price wise with me but have to say the AS sports price on the other thread is amazing. If I didn't have bats I have, the AS option is one to jump out for anyone wanting to try a Pakistani bat from a reputable company.

CA have always stood out head and shoulders and been the biggest Pakistani brand.

Ihsan I feel have fizzled out in my opinion. Malik have really been making all the right noises lately and are active on social media, there's a recent video of Zulfikar Malik visiting Time Keeley. Oh and his son with a bat from Keeley... make of that what you want but they may take some pointers from TK in their new range.

Problem in Pakistan is there's lots of fakes and shoddy bats floating about... reputable companies: CA, MB Malik, AS, AM, HS, Ihsan - Maybe a few others but I'd stick with one of them 6.

CA and Malik must be the most faked bats,  Also stay well away from the jokers Cricket Xperts!!!!

The H pro bat looks so amazing. Where did you get it? Could you pass me their contact Information? I would love to have one of those for myself.

Ok so i took my time.
Had the bat knocked in by machine then played in a bit with soft bola balls.
And used it today in nets. Luckily it was slightly wet so most balls were pretty soft.
Final weight after 1 and a half grip and antiscuff sheet, edge tape, 3 light coats of oil and shoe goo, it turns out to be 2lb 11.7 oz
I requested 2lbs 10 oz but i was promised that to hit the specs i wanted, it might be slightly heavy in dead weight but would pick up 2lbs 10 oz.
They are spot on with the pick up, picks up beautifuly, well balnced and i had no trouble playing any shot.
My rs signature which is my current match bat and is around 2lbs 10 oz picks up wlightly heavier than mb but mainly because of its convex design ( both would he my match bats now ).
Very happy so far, pressing on h pro is on softer side but bubber sher is slightly harder pressed so would take tome to open up.
To be honest this mb h pro performs as good as my GN signature which retailed  for over 800 dollars.

very nice overall shape .lot of runs :)
The most pity thing is that there is almost zero R&D in all Pakistani cricket brands and total illiteracy in this field.
 Majority of bats break from handle, shoulder or splice and They are still unaware why and none seems to bother as Pakistan itself is a huge market with zero customer care and after sales service. 1st MB broke from shoulder, 2nd CA 10000 best ever bat broke handle twice and last year got MB which is gun also broke from handle. i am sure most of these brand owners visit UK often to meet suppliers of willow, bat makers but i feel none of them will bring their bat maker to have polished some skills. its becoming a lost art brought by  The English.
I am sure Mr Malik met Tim Keeley  to order X amount of bats for their X sponsored players.

Very sad when a brand like mb Malik who clearly know how to make performing bats have an issues with handle longevity ...
