Pressing is a skill because you need to understand what and why you a pressing a piece of willow in a certain way....
A soft press bat, in my opinion, is one of the biggest miss conceptions / myths about cricket bats out there. There is a place for it but you shouldn't
soft press a cleft because you think it will be better!!!!! That is when it won't last!
Asian pressing in certain aspects is the same as English pressing - you get some good ones and you get some bad ones... The thing about some asian brands is they press for size or/and for bowing and that makes them worse
