A MODERN APPROACH FOR THE CLASSIC STROKEMAKER
The Core's shape allows for a power-packed mid to low hitting zone. Its spine shape enables the bat to pick up better than most mid to low sweet spot bats. If you seek the confidence to get forward and get value for your shots, then the Core is for you.
GP (performance) bats are graded on performance. The ping/performance of these bats is often equivalent to our top GLE grade, but they don't meet the same grain structure required. You can expect upwards of 8 grains, with the possibility of small blemishes and heartwood.

SELECTING THE CORRECT WEIGHT
Heavier bats have a slower bat speed than lighter bats. The effort required to move the bat increases as the weight of the bat increases. A lighter bat will allow faster bat speed and increase the chance of middling the ball. A heavier bat will not be comparatively easy to middle the ball with, but it will stay hit when you connect with it.
In general, the rule is light bats for the controlled players and slightly heavier bats for the aggressive and attacking stroke-makers.
Use these weights as a guide when choosing the weight of your bat:
Light (2lbs 6oz - 2lbs 8oz): We recommend this weight range if you are moving from junior sizing to your first full-size bat or if your moving into the finishing stages of your playing career and are looking for a lighter bat which may help if you carry a lingering injury
Regular (2lbs 9oz - 2lbs 10oz): This is a standard weight range for a full-size cricket bat. The majority of professional cricketers use a bat of this weight. It is an excellent balance between bat speed and bat performance.
Heavy (2lbs 11oz +): From 2lbs 11oz, you get a bat less about bat speed and more about overall performance. This weight range is for players who want to score their runs through boundaries and want a large and imposing bat.
