GM 2020 (rumour mill)
« on: October 21, 2019, 01:17:06 PM »

Afternoon all,

I thought Id share some of the information Ive heard moving around the circuit on this years upcoming GM range to see if any of this info may be true and could be corroborated by someone on the forum...

Bats: Ive been told theres two or three new additions including the return of the icon. But sacrificing one of the current 2019 range. With a colour scheme of black/blue and orange being thrown about somewhere on the same sticker if from 2019. With an attacking profile  and a full profiled bat too...

Bags: blackout, usual designs taking to a darker colour scheme but theres some sort of blue bags somewhere apparently... I so hope it all looks good!!

SURPRISE ITEM OF NOTE: GM are supposedly blowing people out of the water with a new type of grip that has been largely spoken about. Apparently something that we probably havent seen before but everyone seems to be getting hyped up over it.

PLEASE NOTE, THESE ARE JUST THINGS I HAVE HEARD- They may or may not hold any merit at all but I would love to hear your thoughts about all this...

From what I've seen pictures I think you're spot on pretty much, one of the bats is completely blue, one black/orange and then the returning bat has transparent stickers (not retro sadly).

The black bags look NIIICE. Sadly the blue bags (Maestro) look a bit underwhelming to my eye. Theyre already up on some of the Oz sites such as Meulemans and cricketcentre.

Two new short blades plus the Icon is what I've seen online.

Grip sounds interesting! GM do always have the best grips on the market, interesting to see where you could go with such a simple product.

If the UK ones are the same then they look a bit too 90's for me

That was exactly my thought too. Perhaps they wanted them to look retro? Theres definitely a market for retro looking stuff, but if they are GMs attempt they are sadly wide of the mark.

Ive had a big response personally from this post. And someone has sent me a photo of the supposed grip that is heading out. If it is. Its really interesting... am I allowed to post the picture all powerful admin??

I have also just found out that the GM LE pads have removed the silver piping from around the edges. Say what!?! All white, pro looking GM pads, get in my kit bag

Nope, and we really dont want to be in the position where the forum lose the owner of GM over a picture of a grip.
