Does Anyone have any opinions as to which of these cricket bats is better or how they play?
Also what Grade English Willow are these cricket bats made out of?
I am looking at the Gladius 1000 however I have no experience with this bat, can anyone tell me if this was the top of the range bat or was there higher than the 1000?
Thanks in advance!!
Nicolls Gladius 1000 is f9
Cricket bats are generally made from English Willow, a very hard wood that doesn’t split or crack easily. The choice of willow is critical to the quality of the bat.
Some bats are made by machines, while the best are made by master cricket bat makers who individually hand craft and hand shave the cricket bats they make. The hand made bats are usually of better quality (last longer, better smack to the impact of the ball), although some well made machined bats exist when the right willow is selected.
What are the grades for the English willow cricket bats?
What do the grades mean and which one is best?
