    #4 The GM Player Edition Cricket Bat

    Ive been selling these really amazing GM Player Edition Cricket Bats now for as long as i can remember. This is the pinnacle of GM's abilities. They no longer hand craft bats but rather use a very high tech CNC machine which exactly replicates the shape & profile its programmed to make. This comes in handy with the GM player edition cricket bats. 

    Here is a video on these Player Edition Cricket bats i made back in 2015. At £615 OR $835 USD This bat is an absolute belter!!


    Gunn & Moore Player Edition cricket bats utilize cutting edge DXM technology to offer precise replicas of the cricket bats used by GM’s leading international stars. Gunn & Moore’s unique Computer Aided Manufacture produce GM cricket bats to precise player profile and dimensions, including those used Travis Head, James Vince,Quinton De Kock and Ross Taylor. GM Players Edition bats are made from limited edition timber and are finished with prestigious player edition identification and superb laser-engraved player signature. The bat weights of GM Player Edition cricket bats cannot be specified and will come “as finished”.

    #5 & #6 Millichamp & Hall, Salix AJK Cricket Bats

    For #5 i thought I would also add in a #6 as these bats are quite closely priced & I will also say here the list of cricket bats around the £600+ mark is a very long one. But I felt these two deserve some mention.

    The Salix coming in at £675 or $945 USD & The M&H Pro LE coming in at £600 OR $840 USD.

    The very best willow available coupled with the finest hand making - the AJK exemplifies our experience and our passion as bat-makers. The striking metallic blue bladed design of the labelling conveys the modernity of our most intensive manufacturing, but the shape which is literally pulled around a very thick, low edge, can only be achieved through traditional, instinctive and inspired bat-making. Designed and made for similarly instinctive players, this will take their game to a new level.

    New for 2018, The PRO LE (Limited Edition) range is crafted using the finest professional grade willow that is hand selected for its rebound qualities by our master bat makers. With its full profile, thick shoulders and tapered toe, the PRO LE is performance driven with exquisite pick-up and balance. It's the bat we're asked to make for the very best players around the world, and is tried and tested at the highest level. Oiled and knocked in by hand, you will be in awe of this bat's size, profile and performance

    So what do you think of this list? I know anyone would be happy to have even 1 of these bats in their bag. Do you have one? tell us about it & we'd also love to hear your thoughts on them. Thanks so much for reading.
