Amar reviews the following lineup of some fantastic bats.
The first in line which Amar reviewed was a SS Terminator Classic. This is a grade 2 English willow bat, weighing approximately 2lb 9 ozs. It is a Yuvraj Singh profile bat with a vast play area and a clean bat face. The bat has an oval handle that usually favors bottom-handed players. You will see a lot of bludge with the spine going all the way down. This bat has 40 mm thick edges and feels slightly heavy at the bottom. The SS terminator is specially designed by the CSO that is now available on their website.
The DSC Flip 3000 is a grade 2 English willow bat. This bat has massive edges with a mid-low profile offering you a great pickup. The bat had a traditional shape spine. The semi-oval slim handle on the bat will surely give you a better pickup and grip.
The MRF Genius Grand Edition 2.0 is a grade 2 English willow bat. The bat has a mid-profile with a semi-oval handle. You will probably need an extra grip on this bat's slim handle. Amar checked the ping of the bat, and the bat felt a lot lighter than the previous two bats reviewed by Amar.
The third on the list was an SG SAVAGE STRIKE Cricket Bat. The bat weighs around 1160-1200g, with 6-7 grains. This premium quality English willow bat endorsed by Hardik Pandya has the same profile as his bat. The traditional round handle will give you an excellent grip and control of the bat.
