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.

There's even a video of Mr Malik meeting Tim Keeley - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgYFhd5kx4s

I've had a few CAs and some AMs and I can hand on heart say I've never had handle problems...

Yes I have seen bats with filler etc... but I don't think that's an issue with genuine higher end bats from the main brands. Remember a lot of fakes about. Also not as wealthy bat makers try and make bats go a long way.

I've seen handle breaks on many western brands also... think it's not as clear cut and a lot of generalising going on.

Every AM bat I've bought I've more than likely been sent a pic of the bat before it was shaped up... and clearly no filler and handles looked fine... can only speak about companies I've dealt with... I did get burnt years ago on a couple of fake Maliks that a family member bought for me... firewood with bleaching crap willow... but can't blame MB for that as it clearly wasn't their bat.

The big brands have a long history, many with 50 years plus as bat makers. Think MIDs is one of the really old companies... so they do have know how... it's either they are taking shortcuts or struggling financially which is making them salvage what they can. The Indian bat makers have the bigger share of the outsourcing contracts.

Yes I agree with you. There are so many fakes out there that you barely see any actual bats. I still have my 7-8 year old plain bat that I bought from CA. It was at one point used as a team bat and nothing happened to it.

After seeing these pictures, I ordered one bat for myself and boy it became my undisputed match bat. It is 2.10 but picks up like 2.7-2.8 and ping is fantastic. I am about to order another one.

I personally feel MB Malik are hit and miss, but it really depends where you get it from. Some of them have really dodgy handles, but the one OP got seems like has the handle where inserts go all the way and is a good handle.

Their middles are perhaps the best I have ever seen.

This one is just under 2.11lb, heels like this Bat has more meat in the middle while it picks up beautifully, around 40mm edges, has butterfly stain, feels very powerful, hoping to use it for the rest of indoor nets

For a top of the range bat it looks quite ugly. But if it performs well then i dont think the op will care too much. Good luck!

You think it's ugly? 🙂
Never seen a butterfly cricket bat? Bet you'll readily pay 300 if you get a chance to hold it, 🙂 it's that good a bat!

Iv seen plenty of butterfly cricket bats. Owned one too from SS and it was amazing and it cost only 50gbp. My point is... For a bat promoted as "top of the line grade 1+ willow" strange to find butterfly bats.
