Hammer Black Edition Cricket Bat 2015

Cricket bat makers have definitely gone the extra mile when it comes to their cricket bat ranges for 2015. Kookaburra has brought on some fantastic new ranges including bolstering their existing Kahuna and the ever popular Bubble comeback cricket bat. GM has also produced some superlative ranges for 2015, including the Mogul, Sigma and of course ever popular brands like the Icon and the Octane.

Small bespoke handcraft bat makers are also pulling out the stops to produce cricket bats that will match and possibly even surpass the bats produced by the larger brands of bat makers. One of the best bats for the 2015 season has to be the Hammer Black Edition Cricket Bat.

This bat does not last long on the shelves and the makers at Hammer cricket have kept the exclusivity of this cricket bat by only producing 25 of them.

The limit on the amount produced is also due to the caliber of the willow. The Hammer Black Edition Cricket Bat 2015 is produced from willow that is usually only reserved for the best professional players. The semi-oval handle is made from premium 12 piece cane. This quality handle is a substantial element of the almost zero vibration from the bat.

It has a full face profile and the camber on the bat is 2mm. This camber along with the profile allows the bat to have huge edges. The bat is available in SH and LH.

Perhaps the greatest element of this cricket bat is the weight distribution. The bat weighs between 2.9 and 2.12 but the absolutely brilliant balance of the cricket bat makes it feel a lot lighter. This gives the batsman huge amounts of concentrated power without compromising on the batsman’s ability to wield the willow.

Such is the exclusivity of this bat is that it comes with a high quality padded bat cover to help you protect one of the best cricket bats your money can buy.

It has to be said that NB is making a real fist of thing, having signed many huge brand name players.

Aaron Finch was one of the first to be using NB cricket equipment. The Australian T20 captain uses his New Balance stickered B3 cricket bat to great effect as he carts bowlers to all parts of the ground. New Balance have now swept up another rising Aussie star in Steve Smith.

New Balance already sponsor a plethora of great bowlers. The New Balance Bowling line up includes James Pattinson, Pat Cummins and the greatest bowler of them all Dale Steyn.

New Balance has for a while had the services of South African explosive batsman David Miller.

This all bodes very well for the game of cricket, as big athletics companies see the market share to be had.
