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.

These look much better than the uk Indian made ones. Is this the beginning of the end of uk GN......

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!

Monsterously unlikely.

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!
