Yes I know,,, Im sure they do well from millfield and kings
I suppose fair play to em,,,,, I should pull my finger out and try and compete with em
Unfortunately they have that heritage to bs sales out of unsuspecting customers

No. Not fair play at all!

Although, I suppose, if someone is going to get ripped off...

Surely if you were going to be mental and fork out that sort of money you would get the Original (link below) and save yourself 150 quid!! Still 550 though!!

Can't see the heritage model on the new list which is a design they got very right(a retro design!)

Interesting comparing the salix website in design with the SSP of 675 for the pod finite. Just from an aesthetic point of view one brand seems to have put much more into it

Ask me to make something similar and you can have 2 top grades for that price and both will come knocked in and Uk made from scratch.

Exactly. And supporting people like you should be what this site is about.

M&H still following the 'cricket for the rich' market plan I see...

This just stinks of fresh BS:

"...high performance English willow. It features a profile that we're asked to make by the very best players around the world, and is tried and tested at the highest level."

High performance willow? Huh?
The very best players? Who asks you to make it exactly?
Tried and tested at the very highest level? By whom? When? Where?

Just vague marketing spiel to talk up the bat and to try to justify that criminal price.
I used to like M&H. Their heritage, hand crafted bats, and traditipnal branding.
But they jumped the shark a couple of years ago with this BS.

Fun fact... all bats are made from professional grade willow. Thank goodness for that! Every M&H is the same as a pro would use, rejoice!

They need to update the description for the Solution as it's the only bat in the range missing that particular marketing touch :D

You could get 6 GM Signatures for that price. In fact, someone probably has.    ;)

hmmm ... What does it do?
Will it make me score 500 runs in a T20 game?

I've heard their strategy for the Eversley pop-up shop is to "rip off mums" so this kind of pricing is not surprising.

Takes me back to the CBF vs Kilve game last summer... Kilve no3 walked out with a very shiny M&H, we had fun sledging and he was very confused! 😂

he did hit a few huge ones with it mind...

Pretty sure you'll find that's just the M&H strategy nationwide!

When parents pay 8-10k a term to send their children to school a 500-700 Bat isnt going to make much of a dent in the bank balance.

Its a trend thing that the brand has done well to cater for its immediate audience surrounding it.

Are others undervaluing their skill and labour by making from scaratch or would putting a 500 price tag on a bat make it unappealing due to the fact the brand is realatively unheard of?
