SS Gunther Cricket Bat 2022 - Review by CSO
Posted by Cricket Store Online on 4th Aug 2022
“The SS Gunther is here”. Amar excitedly reviews the biggest bat from SS 2022 bats ranges along with Dipesh. In this video, Amar and Dipesh review and unbox three SS Gunther bats in total. The bat comes in a brown leather bag with SS Gunther branding on it which already makes the whole unboxing experience premium.
The idea is simple. SS puts two Gunther bats in one bag. One is for the main matches while the other is for training in nets. The main bat is way expensive and aesthetically better than the practice bat. Both bats are extremely similar in weight, design, profile, and other areas except aesthetics. Both bats will also provide a similar batting feel and that is the whole purpose of two bats. Dipesh beautifully explains the need for 2 bats in the video. You don’t want to wear off your main bat in net practice because it is more expensive. You want a separate but similar bat to help you practice in nets so that your main one does not get broken. This summarizes the needs of professional cricket players who feel this need. Gunther is just simply not for starters!
Amar jumps in to explain the issue faced by many people who buy player bats. They want a similar profile bat that weighs the same so they can use it during training sessions. This is a major problem for professional cricketers and SS solves it with Gunther. Although it is an expensive $2000 bat, you also get a smaller brother of this to practice.
Both bats have even straight grains. The main bat seems to be more visually aesthetic with no change in color tone whatsoever.
Profile of SS Gunther 2022
Now coming down to profile, Gunther is very different compared to other SS bats. It has a thin shoulder width which gives more room for willow to be concentrated in the middle and bottom. The edges are extremely thick with a high spine. The toe profile is squared and is also way thicker than most player bats. The spine meets the toe without making a duckbill shape like other bats. All these specs mean one thing. The bat is made for powerful performance. The mid-to-low profile would make SS Gunther a perfect fit for aggressive hitters who need a huge sweet spot and good shock absorption throughout the bat. It will also do great for players who like to play slogs, cuts, drives, and pull shots on the crease.
After that, Dipesh opens up 2 more pairs of bats that are available on Cricket Store Online
