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.
