Optimum control over your shots

The Swell Indoor is designed for indoor and har tennis ball cricket.. The Indoor Swell's shape allows for an outstanding pickup with optimum performance in the centre of the blade. The spine peaks in the middle of the hitting zone then carrys through to the toe allowing for excellent distribution of weight throughout the hitting zone. This allows for a well-balanced lightweight bat which, enables yourself to have more time and control over your shots.

CONSTRUCTION

This bat conforms to MCC Law 5 bat regulations, which means that the bat needs will fit through an approved bat gauge with maximum dimensions of 108mm in blade width, 67mm in spine height with 40mm edges.

PLAYER TYPE

Batsmen who want a lightweight bat so they can maneuver the ball to their chosen area. While also maintaining an even spread of willow throughout the blade to give a forgiving hitting zone.

SWEET SPOT

Its central hitting zone peaks between 210mm & 230mm, (from the toe of the bat) the spine then runs flat to the toe, designed to provide a well-balanced bat allowing both power and control over your shots.

PICK UP

The Swell's shape is designed primarily around having a well-balanced bat that picks up exceptionally well. It typically picks up slightly lighter than the actual weight of the bat.

PROFILE

The profile is concaved, allowing for a lightweight bat & an even spread of willow through the edges, spine and profile. You can expect a scallop between 3mm and 6mm.

EDGE & SPINE

This Swell has moderately sized edges and spine peaking in the central zone of the playing surface. You can expect an edge height ranging from 30m to 35mm and a spine height between 55mm & 63mm.

FACE & BOW

Our standard bowed blade generates a perfectly balanced pick up to deliver increased power and control. Our modern flat face allows for enhanced shot placement. The edges are boned (hardened) to strengthen and decrease the chance of cracking.

TOE

The 20mm to 22mm semi-round angled toe helps prevent chipping of the corners of the bat. It also allows you to slide easily into your crease. The angle provides a more stable position while in your stance.

HANDLE

The ergonomic semi-oval handle provides strength to your grip of the handle & reduces rotation (compared to a round handle) when hitting off-centre of the blade. Our high-quality cork and Manu cane handle assist in diffusing the shock waves and movement in the hands.

ENGLISH WILLOW

INDOOR

Acquired specifically for indoor cricket, our Indoor willow is cosmetically inferior to the rest of our grades but still structurally sound. This grade of willow produces some fantastic bats as indoor cricket is all about hand speed and control rather than outright bat performance.

If you are looking for a specific grain structure, please get in touch, and we'll let you know what is available.

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 quite as easy to middle the ball with, but when you connect with the ball, it will stay hit.

In general, the rule is light bats for the controlled players and slightly heavier bats for the aggressive and attacking stroke-makers. Indoor bats are considerably lighter then outdoor bats as the game is more about bat speed and control over outright bat performance and power.Use these weights as a guide when choosing the weight of your indoor bat:

Light (1lb 15oz - 2lbs 1oz): 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 2oz - 2lbs 5oz): This is a standard weight range for a full-size indoor cricket bat. It is an excellent balance between bat speed and bat performance.

Heavy (2lbs 6oz +): From 2lbs 6oz up you get a bat less about bat speed and more about overall power. This weight range is for players who want a similar feeling to a lightweight outdoor bat.
