Posted by jason mellet on 3rd Nov 2016
The GM Paragon cricket bat for 2017 has an L-Sweet spot and for the Paragon it is an L555. The L-Sweet means that players have better choice over their length of blade and their length of handle. This means that traditional players can go for a more traditional length cricket bat blade and power hitters can opt for perhaps a longer handle and a shorter blade. The GM Paragon has a very traditional look to the length of the blade and the length of the handle. The length of the handle on the GM Paragon is 295mm, that is about 30mm shorter than for example the GM Kaha cricket bat.
