All GMs are the same size give or take a mm or two for CNC/ finishing variations. Low density clefts just make lighter bats of the same size

As above, once all clefts are graded , they are stored into a temperature controlled room which I think is 20*c , along with the handles.

most manufacturers are sourcing there own willow now, I think Gm said they were up somewhere between 70-90%.
Also how a cleft is split makes a difference to the end result

Ah yes remember that on the tour. It was impressive the attention to the detail and little things.

Handles are stored in temperature controlled room alongside the clefts to maintain consistency. Also re cleft size, they have the moisture levels of the clefts controlled and checked.

They are rechecked before pressing and if they are not correct the cleft goes back to the kiln/temperature controlled room (someone correct me, but it is def sent back in the process).

It's one of the reasons I have a new found respect for GM and would happily buy their bats online as long as I can choose the weight, even though they work off a pick up index  :D

Signatures are great, but to be honest I think they provide great value at every grade.  Definitely the best of the big brands at engaging with their customers as well.

What's the magic number then?

My range (edit:) for new bats is $250 (GBP 190) - $325 (GBP 250).

Needs a new topic for that, for me it needs to be something special to get me to part with more than 150, so many bearly used bats for sale on here for sub 150.

Plan to buy some  sl22 boosts and hopefully one of the forum sponsors will hook me up  :)

Er... hello Forum sponsors? Anyone got a size 10.5 on sale? Don't all shout at once?

urm can I suggest you do an items wanted or speak to a sponsor direct.
They are nice guys you know, especially if you have reddies to spend.
This is a thread on signatures not boosts... you cant expect every sponsor to trawl through every thread
