Cheapest SS bat and a special SG bat
« on: September 25, 2020, 03:13:43 PM »

Ordered myself one of SS cheapest cricket bats and ended up with this. Very impressed with the response and the grains. Took the punt on 4 but the rest actually look like G4/G5s.

The falcon range has a vinyl sticker that Im tempted to remove to see whats underneath.

I suspect most retailers wont stock these with very little profit margin for them

Edges: 37mm
Weight: 2lb9.5

Second up is a SG that pings really well already. Was told my the merchant that this was a special bat. Ive seen a few SG bats at my club this year and been impressed with all of them
Edges: 39mm
Weight 2lb9.0
Massive bat for the weight

Seems like good finds if you like them.

Some of the high end SS bats look aesthetically pleasing to true eye.
But for some reason, I have yet to find an SS bat that feels great in hands. And I mean, I have tried with quite a few. This included a 2.7 and a one that I acquired from a West Indian national team player. (Forgot the name as he only played a coupe of ODI in 2012)

SG was another brand that I never got on with, till one day, I burrowed one from a friend to face a few practice balls on the pitch. It was an SG Players Ultimate bat. It was a relatively short ball pitched on middle and leg. And I just gave it a little tap, and the ball was outside rope on midwicket, and I was like, What the F??
It was an eye popping and a Jaw dropping effect.

So I offered a $100 on top of whatever he paid but he wont sell.
So I sourced the same model bat in the same weight from the same retailer and supposedly from the same lot - after thoroughly knocking in and lots of net sessions, I took it to the game where I played a full fledge stroke, high towards long on. I knew I had middled it with a solid connection and was waiting to hear the cheers from my team mates to applaud the six - but heck - it was caught by the fielder 10 meters inside the boundary - it was again an eye popping and jaw dropping experience, and again, I was left thinking, WHAT THE F ????

Love those retro SG stickers. And who thought up that name? Sanspareil Greenland? What's that about?
