One of the hottest brands of cricket equipment at the moment is without a doubt the New Balance range of cricket equipment and in particular the New Balance range of bats. Among the bats the New Balance DC1080 cricket bat is the one that most cricket fans are falling in love with. It is the bat that is used by Australian superstar Steve Smith and South African power hitter David Miller.
The New Balance DC 1080 shouts from every aspect and angle that it is a world class cricket bat. It is a limited edition cricket bat, simply because of how high quality the willow is. It is therefore no surprise that the willow used for the New Balance DC 1080 cricket bat is Grade 1 English Willow. It is high quality willow that has been hand selected and is obviously unbleached.
As the bat was developed with players like Steve Smith and David Miller in mind, the bat is produced with slightly bouncier pitches in mind. The sweet spot is in the mid to high part of the blade. This is to the benefit of class batsmen who play great shots on the up.
New Balance have really gone to town when it comes to the handle of the New Balance DC 1080 cricket bat. They have used only the best Singaporian Cane for the make-up of the handle. It is a 9-piece handle and is in the oval shape.
The bat has been rated as a 5 star cricket bat and it is easy to see why. The weight guide on the bat is that it is a 2lbs7oz to 2lbs12oz.
The pick-up on the bat is superb. It is extremely well balanced and will be of easy use to players with a high back lift like Steve Smith and those with a smaller back lift like David Miller.
