That looks like a great stick. I quite like these GN bats from different markets.

I think they have done a good job with the pricing. INR 16k (170 GBP) for the lower end bats and INR 40k (420 GBP) for the high end bats.

Has anyone picked one of these up yet? They look incredible. Very tempted by the Kane Williamson and Finch bats. They come in at $280 here or $180 from India.

No idea why Woakes has his own bat though!

Saw this thread a wee while ago, but not had time to post pics or anything.

Word of warning about the bats, they do come up to be a bit narrower than the max 108mm width. (Between 105.5-106.5mm) if this is something that bothers you, probably avoid.

They ping very well though, at least the ones I've had seem to. The narrower width means they can appear quite large for their weights. Handle wise, just slightly thin side of medium, kind of like the GN typical handles. The ping on these seem to be very good too, better than most off the shelf bats from GN that I've seen in store. In terms of pressing, softer feeling than most GN I've come across.

I'll pop up some pictures sometime this week!

The Indian made GN's I've seen have all been very dry. They go well but crack all to easily.

Thanks @Chad  for the pics! Just superb bats, shapes and pics. Also handles look decent thickness which is great as opposed to my 6 yr old GN which had toothpick type handle.. Big fan of the full square toe (understand not for everyone), unable to resist from getting one, but then difficult to choose as each is equally good :D

Perhaps this is also the time to show what GN UK is selling after charging the customer so much. May not be made in UK but they are pretty poor compared to the images posted earlier in this thread.

Wow, I love the Woakes and Bairstow bats.

Kane's bats have no concaving though, I've seen them for the last 3 seasons. I've also never seen the Williamson editions made in Aus have any concaving. He could have changed his shape to this recently though so who knows. Still beautiful shapes.

Well remember it is for indian market where people prefer lighter bats. They had to keep weight down to attract young players to these bats.
