Probably my favourite GM shape, I was lucky to get one off @brokenbat and it is a wonderful bat.

Lovey looking bat Chris. Looks the same shape as Stokes and a few others use.

Vince used to have a different shape to that, well he did two+ years ago, it was low middle with a bow. What the Zelos was then designed from

@Six Sixes Cricket was that the purple stickered one you had in that you are thinking of? That was just as I was getting in to a position to be able to buy my first PE and it looked absolute perfection. "The most Indian style GM PE" I think we described it as at the time. I am trying to stalk your pics online but can't find it quickly. It's a shame the shapes became so samey after that

Here are my two of this Vince/ Stokes shape

For those that mentioned about thin toe and shoulders they are thinner than all my other GM bats

Vince PE - toe 16mm on edge of toe and 18mm middle of toe
Neon LE - toe 22mm on edge of toe and 26mm middle of toe
Siren Sig- toe 23mm on edge of toe and 26mm middle of toe

Shoulders of the bats

Vince PE - 17mm shoulder
Neon LE - 20mm shoulder
Siren Sig- 21mm shoulder

I guess that as they are exact replicas of players bats they are not to bothered if they break as they get new ones or free repairs so just have all the wood in the hitting area. Plus they middle the ball far more often then even the beat club players

Lovely bat Chris,

Glad you decided to treat yourself to one.

Sorry to hear about your Wife's job. Maybe she has some time on her hands to do some knocking in for you?  ;)

I used to be the one criticizing GM bats for thin toes. But after using GM bats in particular harrow size where toe is thinner compared to SH I dont see any problem with them anymore. I noticed you dont hit toe at all unless you miss time or hit in anger. GM scuff sheet are good proof to see how high you hit bat actually as it covers with cherries very quick.
I compared GM toe to my Kookaburra charge and its not that of difference. Shape of GM that makes it look thinner

So anyone worried about GM thin toe put your worries to rest and buy/use a GM.

I personally like the see through stickers a lot. Only issue is that they haven't quite sorted out the glue and you can see blobs of glue under the see through edges, which tends to get a bit unstuck. Very minor issue though - generally great design

Yeah that's my only gripe with the LEs I have as well...

In all honesty the current stickers dont stick that well on the edge of any of my GM bats. The Siren I have could easily pull away at the edges and also the toe sticker but with the clear ones you can if you look really closely see the glue blobs under the sticker. Minor complaint I guess.

Very true. I haven't had a single GM with latest style stickers where they have been stuck down on the edges. I can live with that for overwhelming positives though  :)

My other complaint for these Players Editions is for all that money please please please include some kind of cover or case! Every one I've had arrived with dents

Luckily mine was very well packaged as I would be annoyed if it arrived dented. I do fully agree that for this kind of money a bat cover should be included. A matching signed player edition cover would be a nice touch but worst case just a full length bat cover included. Think Paul from IJC has mentioned the same in his videos

Very nice PE bats. Do these bats or other grade GM bats need additional knocking or can be used in nets directly?

If I'd spent that much I'd be knocking it in regardless 😂

Iv always just taken my GM bats into the nets and knocked in via Bola balls. This one will get some mallet action on edges and toe just to be safe I think.

Other grades no issue at all and this one could certainly be used straight away.
