Posted by Cricket Store Online on 2nd Feb 2021
Hi Readers! Welcome to another post on the Cricket Store Online Blog. We hope you read our last blog on the new GM 2021 bats that we have in store. Keep following our blog throughout the year to stay updated about the latest and greatest cricket gear that we have to offer.
In this blog, we will talk about the types of SS Cricket Bats 2021 and the overall range that we have available in our Cricket Store Online. We’re excited to have the newest and latest SS cricket bats available for sale for you to get ready for this year’s cricket season. Throughout this blog, we will walk you through each and every bat model in detail and provide recommendations for you based on your needs and preferences.
First up is a little bit of history about SS and why you should consider buying a SS bat over other brands. SS stands for Sareen Sports Industries and was established back in 1969 by N.K. Sareen, with its main factory located in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. SS is best known for its Sunridges line of bats, and they became widely popular in the two memorable test innings: VVS Laxman’s 281 against Australia at Eden Gardens in 2001, and Virender Sehwag’s 309 against Pakistan at Multan. Made in India, SS bats are usually endorsed by the Indian subcontinent teams and players, one of them Yuvraj Singh. All the SS/Ton bats available in our store are handpicked by our Cricket Store Online experts after meeting with Jatin Sareen, the current Managing Director of the SS industries.
We try to inform you of all the available ranges that we currently have in store and recommend you bats based on your preferences, but if you happen to like a specific bat model that we don’t carry, please Whatsapp us at (609)666-4464 or email us at email@example.com. We have ordered many specialized, customised, and limited edition bats for our customers. For example, we just recently placed an order for a GM Diamond Bat, that we currently don’t have in stock online, for our customer who was looking for a “Ben Stokes” bat. For the readers of this blog, we also invite you to join our private Whatsapp group full of returning and loyal Cricket Store Online patrons. We post heavy discount deals on all kinds of cricketing gear in that group.
If you have been to our Cricket Store Online website and searched for SS/Ton Bats, you probably noticed that there are lots of models available for purchase. To understand which SS/Ton bat best fits your needs, let’s walk through all the models one by one:
1. SS Retro Series Cricket Bats
We have a varied range of selection in the SS Retro Series bats because they’re available in a very wide price range and cater to all sorts of batting needs, depending on the model you select. All the SS Retro Series bats have a mid to low swell (sweet spot) and a very thick edge to send the flying behind the wicket if you happen to edge a quick delivery. Also, these Retro Series bats come equipped with SS’ very own specialized Aqua grip. The different selections below differ mostly in prices, because of the English Grade Willows they come in. Head to our online store to check out the price on all the bats below and check out our video on these for more details.
- a. SS Retro Ultimate Bat 2021
The most economical and affordable model in the SS Retro Series Bats, these bats are hand selected in the English Willow Grade 5 category. Usually when you’re picking bats in the Grade 5 category, you want to make sure they’re hand selected for a smooth front profile with minimal blemishes and knots. They might not have as many grains as the other higher grade bats below but this bat will suit a beginner looking to play some cricket. This bat comes equipped with a toe guard and is available in light weight and medium weight categories.
- b. SS Retro Gutsy Bat 2021
This bat has a Grade 4 English Willow and comes equipped with a toe guard. Available in our light weight category of bats, this bat feels lighter than it weighs considering it has a heavy, meaty sweet spot. If you’re looking for a light and affordable bat, then we heavily recommend investing in the SS Retro Gutsy.
- c. SS Retro Super Bat 2021
This bat has a Grade 3 English Willow and comes equipped with a toe guard. Along with being available in our medium weight selection, this bat is also available in our light weight category if you’re looking for a lightning fast pickup and excellent balance along with a heavy and thick sweet spot.
- d. SS Retro Max Power Bat 2021
Available in Grade 2 English Willow, this medium weight bat doesn’t come equipped with a toe guard but we can always customize it for you with a toe guard upon your request.
- e. SS Retro Power Plus Bat 2021
This bat has a Grade 1 English Willow and comes equipped with a toe guard. With a specially designed grip and designed for and by professionals of the game, this bat is one of the most affordable Grade 1 English Willow bats out there. If you’re looking for an economical option with the best SS English Willow bat out there for your game day needs, we highly recommend this medium weight bat.
- f. SS Retro Supreme Bat 2021
This bat has the best English Willow in the Retro Series, because it’s a highly selected Grade 1 English Willow, comparable to professional Player bats. Since they’re very close to the Player Willow bats, these are not equipped with a toe guard as cricketers usually like to apply their own toe guards and they usually go through quite a few toe guards over the life of a bat. The most expensive model in the Retro Series Range, the Supreme bats are designed for and by cricket professionals. If you’re looking for a medium-weight bat close to what a cricketer would use in a game and also slightly affordable than SS Limited Edition Bats, then this is the bat for you.
This bat is the most highly regarded premium bat available in very limited quantities. Introduced in 2020, this bat has a striking resemblance to some of the bats MS Dhoni has used. Hand selected and specially picked by the SS owner based on the recommendations of some of the top cricketers in the world, this bat deservedly has the MSRP of $1000. You might be able to get them at a discount on our store if you’re lucky. This bat has the absolute best Grade 1 English willow and there’s nothing higher than a Grade 1, but in the bat manufacturer world, these bats would get a Grade 1++ rating. Available in the medium weight category, we highly recommend this bat for the true batsmen who are looking to emulate their game based on professional cricketers. We stand by the quality of this bat and if the price doesn’t deter you (or if you find it cheaper than the MSRP in our store), we highly recommend you to go for it to set you apart from others. This bat also comes with a portable and premium leather cover. Head to our online store to check out the price on these and check out our video on these for more details.
This bat has the hand selected premium limited edition English willow. For comparison’s sake, this bat has a slightly better English willow than SS Retro Supreme but not better than the SS Gladiator Bat. Profile wise, this bat has the exact same traditional blade profile as the thousand dollar SS Super Select Bat - which is mighty impressive considering the feasibility of Maximus bats. The specialty of this Maximus bat is a huge mid swell (sweet spot) to not just cater to your front foot game but also your back foot square cuts, pulls, and hooks. Equipped with the special Aqua grip and maybe a toe guard (usually SS Grade 1 English willow bats don’t come equipped with a toe guard but some rare ones do), these Maximus bats are very popular in the SS range of bats and are much more affordable than the Gladiator bats. The weight distribution on this bat (medium weight category) is phenomenal and we highly recommend these for an allround stroke play game. Head to our online store to check out the price on these and check out our video on these for more details.
This bat is hand selected and specifically requested by our CSO experts from SS manufacturers. These are traditional player profile bats, meaning they have the premium hand selected Grade 1 English Willow (think Maximus for comparison’s sake) and are designed as per the bats professional cricketers (like Rohit or MS Dhoni) would use. Extremely balanced and offering a lightweight pickup, these medium weight category bats are available in very limited quantities in our store. Head to our online store to check out the price on these and check out our video on these for more details.
Just like the GM Diamond Bat from our last blog, the SS Gladiator Bat is the best selling SS bat so far because of its extremely clean profile and limited edition Grade 1 English willow. This is also one of the few Grade 1 willows that come equipped with a toe guard and offer mid swell (sweet spot) offering every stroke play in the book with power and balance. Offering large edges and the lightest pick up in the medium weight category of bats, the Gladiator bats have been extremely popular because of its perfect weight distribution. These bats sell themselves when our customers try them out and we highly recommend them and stand by them for your game day needs. Head to our online store before they run out because of the popular demand.
Popularly known as the “MS Dhoni SS Bat”, this bat is again in the hand selected and premium Grade 1 English Willow bat category. The bat is meant for a batsmen looking to finish the innings with glory and boasts the thickest edges out of all the SS bats. With a very traditional bow arc profile, these bats have a mid swell (sweet spot) and feel very balanced on the pickup. This is not a light bat by any means and doesn’t feel light as well. It’s in the medium weight category and feels slightly heavy in comparison to other SS bats. Most importantly, if you are a fan of MS Dhoni, this bat was specifically designed with his preferences and specifications in mind. This bat comes with a portable premium bat cover. Head to our online store to check out the price on these and check out our video on these for more details.
Last but not the least, if you’re looking for budget-friendly custom made player profile bats, then this bat is for you. In terms of comparison, the profile of this bat is very similar to the expensive SS Limited Edition bats. These Performance bats are budget friendly because they’re not Grade 1 premium English willow and have quite a blemish on the face. If these things don’t bother you and you’re looking for the bang for your buck or what we call a “value” buy, these bats are for you. We have specifically designed these bats purposefully harder and for US conditions. It will take a while to properly knock them in, but we offer professional knocking service with every bat so just request it and we will knock it for you for a minimal charge. These bats are truly “performance” and are designed to last longer. Head to our online store to check out the price on these and check out our video on these for more details.
