GM Signature range, best bang for your buck by far

Loads of members rave about the quality and response for around 120gbp

Hit up @Six Sixes Cricket or any of the other sponsors for more info

I've had very good GMs for around 100 before. But really best advice is to go into a shop and just see what feels good/looks decent quality.

thanks for the feedback I'll definitely have a look into GM. When I was younger I used to like the Woodworm bats (mainly because of KP) however I've read that they're not very high quality even their "premier" bats. Is this the case?

Thanks again

GM or Kookaburra are great value and great bats. Personally I will go for kookaburra for having slightly thicker toe than GM. Only reason I wont buy GM is that I dont like their thin toes.

Any of the forum sponsors or bat.  Makers will give you a Great bat.

Rob @Six Sixes Cricket always has a great selection and really happy to help. Red ink makes from scratch and I think a custom bat can be made for very close to your budget as well

I think that is a cheap Kashmir bat, looking at the willow colour and 2 spring handle. Also even if its English willow will.  Be quiote a few years old now and more than likely will be quite dead performance wise.
If you want cheap and nothing else MSR on eBay have some cheap blemished English willow bats that always play quite well from experience

No - Ive had 2 MSRs and both were planks.
A GM signature is a good shout.
The woodworm looks Kashmir.
If you are keen on a woodworm, original Ones pop up regularly on eBay so just keep looking. Thanks

Thats being sold by whispering death on here. As it says, good condition but may need more knocking in.
You could certainly do a lot worse.
Though 55 for a new gm 606 on Amazon is a very good deal.
