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.

Fair enough but they are supposed to be "Player editions" which are the players actual shape. Thats why the price tag comes with them.

I'm close to going for one of these. Struggling between a stunning Williamson or an Aaron Finch... The Grade 2 model though.

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.

Never seen a concaved Powerspot either and i dint think the bat Bairstow uses is concaved. Nice bats but I dont think they have any resemblance to actual players bats with maybe the exception of the Woakes bat as that just looks like a square toe profile with a duckbill which has been a stock Pro shape for the last few years now

Doubt buyers in India will bother about the shape anyways. All they will look at are the lovely GN stickers and ruler straight grains. That is usually enough to sell bats at a premium :D. All the 'Virat Kohli' and 'MS Dhoni' profile G1+ bats in the Indian market are proof of it :D

All look the same shape to me? Most GN stuff seems to be a variation on that theme these days, mid middle with an offset edge. Not a fan personally!

Agree, they look like classic collection shapes but with squarer toes and just different stickers across the range.

FYI, the stickers are changing for the Indian Market GNs after GN Australia raised some concerns about the same labels being used for both markets.

My cricket guy has two gorgeous Woakes models in stock. They look pretty big (one is above 40mm edges) and the weights are decent at 2.8 and 2.95 He already sold the Williamson, thank goodness.

MUST RESIST   ;)

Just pulled the trigger on a ridiculous Woakes, and some ASICS shoes. I tried to resist.

It arrived and it is phenomenal. Actually one of the best bats I've had on performance already. Very impressed!
Thinner handle than other bats (but I think I like that, it seems quite whippy), impressive specs and seriously, seriously pingy. Looks great too, the stickers are fantastic. Very impressed. I've never had a GN as good as this, for sure.

Will post pics when I can remember how to do it.

The Maax is a full profile different shape to Chad a touch mine is 2/9 40mm edge initial knocking in suggests a very good bat and bat is well finished and around 107mm

The woakes is a pig at the minute taps up average not really knocked in slightly narrower 105/106m face decent edge and not massively concave toe running the whole way through. Nice white wood but I personally don't link or will use

Handle thin on both slightly thicker on Maax

Shows the difference in profile as mine and Chad's

They look great, where did you pick them up from and what was the cost?

I'm not gonna keep the woakes (although I don't think my honesty works for me).
