Could this be the most overpriced G3/G4 ever?
« on: January 31, 2020, 07:16:12 PM »

Just seen Millichamp & Hall have really outdone them selves. Here you go everyone at a bargain price as a one off 500. This has just sent M&H to my most hated brand ever and the guy on the FB videos must be the best salesmen in the history of sales if he can convince anyone as he says the best of the best pro willow

Thought exactly the same when all was revealed. Very ordinary looking bat indeed, which shouldn't be the case given the video hype. M&H letting themselves down badly there.

For me, the Hitman bat that someone posted a while back was the most over priced bat. This is nearly as bad but not as horrible.

Lots of topics on bat prices and I'm firmly in the camp that grade 2 bat pressed well are perfectly acceptable for us club players, we really don't need super finite graded  bats because the vast majority are not good enough to regularly find the middle like the pros do, better off spending money on practice or coaching.

Anyway....I'm not m and h's biggest fan which is a shame as I grew up just wanting one of their bats, and some of them are great, my team mates have them.

For this bat shown what is stopping it being a grade 2 bat? To my eye I see a 2, and we know grading is subjective...

Just for a bit of balance towards m and h...

agree with all you said, as at one I wanted M&H as well when I once held a beautiful and very well balanced, off a youngster

Ive still got a couple of M&H bats left from last season, and they are very much top grade, with performance as you would expect. That said, overall their grading is a little bit interesting. If you go down to their place in Taunton there are an awful lot of bats which are priced as G1, but really dont look like it. I guess they might play better than they look, but I wouldnt even bother picking up a G1 bat that looked like that, let alone give it a wallop with a mallet.

Took a punt with their jan sale stuff, totalling 150 for pads gloves and a duffle which all in was 50% off rrp, was extremely disappointed with the quality. Duffle especially suppsoed to be 90 full price was piss poor, barey basic and what most other brands charge about 30 quid for

Then took longer than quoted to refund the money, and even tried to 'forget' I had sent the bag back as well as softs and tried to short change me with refund. Wont bother again

I'd ask about the ping first.

If it's a rocket , then grains matter naught.

Is anyone trying to flog a bat for 500 notes going to tell you it's a plank...

ping should be fine but it's price tag is too high, unless someone who only uses M&H bats, do not see people readily paying 500! for this one

^ I am not sure you can persuade/dissuade people from paying (or not paying) what they want. Boils down to the individual really and what they value most. If the bat is right for them and they can afford it, they will pay and not bat an eyelash.

Bat makers are charging ridiculous prices because there is someone out there paying them. Basic economics.

For 500 I'd expect to be absolutely blown away by both the looks and the performance. Unless this bat is going to turn me into Virat Kohli then that's a ludicrous price tag.
