GR7 Original Cricket Bat

There is scantly a cricket bat brand that is not covered by us here at Cricket Gear Reviews. The GR7 is a very exciting cricket brand and it is receiving rave reviews for very good reason. It is truly a fantastic cricket bat.

It has all the credentials and foundations of a superb professional level cricket bat but aside from that it also has all the trimmings and trappings of the truly explosive modern day cricket bats. For starters it is made from Grade 1 English Willow. These smaller bespoke bat makers like GR7 are often afforded the luxury of their bat makers selecting all of their premium willow by themselves. This means that the pod shaver is one hundred per cent happy with the grade of the willow he is working with.

The sweet spot on the GR7 Original Cricket Bat is as middle as it comes. This is a highly traditional cricket bat and has a lot in common with one of the best brands of cricket bat in the world, the Affinity line of cricket bats. The striking similarity between the bats is the fact that both Affinity and GR7 have taken a step back from the really massive edges and gone for a bat that is well weighted and willow driven. The edges on this bat are between 28mm and 33mm, but the bat packs a punch of epic proportions.

The standard grip that is fitted on the GR7 Original cricket bat is pure white and Chevron design. The chevron design is known for providing good grip and comfort to the batsman. 

The bat has a weight range of about 2lbs8oz to 2lbs13oz. Yet the balance and overall pickup of the bat is superb. It feels a lot less than it actually is and all the effort has gone in to give maximum amounts of power to every area of the cricket bat.

Traditional in shape with slight concaving and a cambered bat face. All in all, the GR7 Original cricket bat is a masterpiece and well worth its price tag.

Kookaburra Ice 200 cricket bat


Thank you for checking out this cricket bat review of the Kookaburra ice 200 cricket bat. This is a well priced cricket bat at $99.00. It is english willow and is suitable for lower level cricket. When i picked up this bat i found it to have a good balance and it comes in the light to medium weights.


I have a younger friend that uses this cricket bat and he says he like the bat alot. The kookaburra ice 200 cricket bat has a Large Sub-Continent style ‘Super Bow’. This is an excellent bat for front foot play and driving the ball. The willow is naturally air dried and has a 12 piece cane handle.

The kookaburra ice 200 cricket bat comes with a white MAX grip and is READY TO PLAY. which means, kookaburra has pre-prepared the bat so you can put it straight to use scoring that next 100.

Cricket store online will even throw in a free bat cover to keep your cricket bat good as new for as long as possible.

MRF Wizard Brian Lara 400 Cricket Bat

So the first thing i noticed about the MRF Wizard Brian Lara Cricket Bat was just how well balanced it is. MRF really has done a good job at creating this masterpiece of a cricket bat. Its almost as if its not in your hands at all. It feels so light it is just amazing. The cricket bat is available in the light to medium range and is available now for $239 at cricket store online.

Watch this short little video from cricket store online in which i explain some of the things i really like about this cricket bat.

Another thing i like about this cricket bat is that it only has 7 or 8 grains. According to the master bat maker at Laver & Wood in New zealand 8 grains is the perfect amount as that will help your bat last longer. If you have to many grains your new cricket bat isnt going to last you more than a few seasons.

This MRF wizard 400 cricket bat is also made in the old fashion model of having thinner edges. I personally prefer thinner edges as it also helps the cricket bat last longer

Remember, all these bats are available at www.cricketstoreonline.com.
