The Hammer HEL 156 Pro Cricket Bat is a great bat for front foot and back foot shots thanks to its classically mid sweet-spot. It has a subtle bow and provides superlative pick up and balance when taking strike and through the shot. It has many great finish standards such as anti-scuff sheet and a professionally installed toe guard.
- The bat looks solid.
- sweet spot has right amount of bulk and oval handle makes handling the bat easy
- The bat came with scuff sheet on (which I specifically didn't order). I had to remove it which makes the surface a bit rough
- I will be applying the oil on the bat, knock it and then apply the scuff sheet
- the bat might feel a shade heavy
- for the scuff sheet I will stick with 3 starsUnknown
