I managed to get hold of a blank bat from the bats set aside for the Currans - only hit a few balls with it but seems a very good bat! Trying to get hold of some genuine adidas stickers for it
Photos?  :)

@t2ylo Had the adidas rep in today,  the difference is on middle position, which is minimal, either black or white is higher with libro in the middle.  " black, libro, white " etc..

Thank you. I also picked up a Libro so I can line all three up (with Libro in the middle)

Just watching Jofra Archer batting on IPL. He took out an Adidas xt white to bat with. After a few big shots a large piece of wood came off at the toe and he called for a replacement. The replacement was an xt Black. So, probably the bats supplied to Archer are not much different in the black or white versions...

After reading some of the threads on here, Id question whether or not Archers bat is even made by Adidas! From their point of view though, have both models/sets of stickers on show gives them way more coverage.

Im not sure Adidas make any bats at all... Im still not sure where they source them from but Ive found some big light ones that all perform.
After the Ebay firesale for Sean Irvine's Adidas bats its clear that some of the pros use a mix of manufacturers.

True. Some suppliers e.g.MRF even use a range of different factories to make their consumer market bats. As long as the quality is good I suppose it doesn't matter...

That said, the Archer bat(s) did seem to have very similar looks and profile to the commercially available adidas bats. And I would be very interested to know which exact company makes the commercial bats for adidas.

Yes I heard that. But on an earlier stream on this forum people suggested it was also Sondhi or even SG. Maybe the story is that they switched from SG to SS a couple of years back?
