My opinion

Love the colour scheme on the new IPL Puma pulse cricket gear and the bat is no different. The willow quality is excellent. My bat i am reviewing now has 12 grains and looks brilliant. great pickup and very nice ping. The one negative is the dead flat face but it works well on this bat with the sub continent curve. very happy with this bat. its a beauty and will score someone many runs.

We Like

– Just about everything about it. Shape, profile, ping, handle shape, presence, willow.

We Dislike

Puma Pulse 6000 IPL Batting Gloves 2012

Quality : 3

Comfort : 3

Protection : 2

score of 8/9

 

Once again i love this colour scheme. these gloves i would say are about the same level and quality as the SS matrix gloves which are really good. probably missing the level of protection you would find in the SS gladiators but these gloves are still really really good for the price.

Puma Pulse 6000 IPL Batting Pads 2012

 

These pads are awesome. very light ( 1lb 6oz ea ). so not as light as Morrant but probably the lightest pads Puma offer. Protection level is test match level. so as good as it gets. Two very comfortable and snug straps that strap behind the leg and as usual from Puma cricket the quality is as good as money can buy. Im really tempted to dump my Adidas pads and start using these, but my adidas gloves are far better and i like my fingers to much to give up on the adidas adipower gloves. Overall super cricket batting pads and i really like them.

Puma Pulse IPL Convertible Spike Cricket Shoes 2012

What can i say about the shoes, they are the ugliest shoes available right now, but, i love them and have taken a set for myself to use in this years DPL. they come in full spike but they are removable so you can replace the spikes with rubber studs if you play on carpeted pitches like we do here. The colour scheme is as awesome as the comfort. very light as well with the puma gel system in the heel for supreme comfort.

Puma Pulse 6000 IPL Wicket Keeping Gloves 2012

A very nice keeper glove. Puma really know how to make top quality gear. There very little out there that is better. It has the Hextech superior grip technology covering the palms and from what i hear international keepers are really liking this stuff. Typical Gel palms to help your hands not get bruised when keeping to those pace bowlers. Over all im really impressed.

Puma Pulse 5000 FXT IPL Wicket Keeping Pads 2012

Apart from the awesome styling and comfort, these babies only weigh about 15 oz each. batting pads generally weight about 10 oz more per pad so these babies are light….and they look cool as well. The usual wicket keeper 2 strap system and also the typical Puma styling make these pads, light, comfortable and agile. Once again im really impressed with puma for pushing the boundaries in the cricket field.

Score of 8/9

Very nice gloves, great protection and certainly quite rare at the moment. you wont see many of these around. Typical www.cricketstoreonline.com having all the coolest gear available and the biggest range as well. Its very obvious these gloves are made by SS. As are most batting gloves the world over these days and would say the only thing that makes these better than the SS gladiators is the use of a better quality Pittards leather on the palms.

So here is a quick look at the new 2012 Puma calibre 4000 cricket batting pads.

Price : $99

Comfort : 7/10

Weight : light

Straps : 2

design : good, current, eye catching, overall i like the design

protection: whilst the protection is good it is a little lacking and whilst the quality of these pads are superb they do lack a bit in protection. So if you want the international level protection you need to look at the 6000 series pads and not these 4000’s. So what am i paying for then you might be asking? you are paying for high quality materials and the puma name in my opinion. If these pads had the SG badge ( and taking into account the quality of these pads are better than any SG pads ) the protection level would probably be the same as a $45 set of SG’s. Enjoy some more close up pics.
