GM Purist F2 cricket bat

GM Purist F2 cricket bat 2014

The GM Purist F2 2014 cricket bat is new for the 2014 season.

Ive reviewed quite a few bats in my time. And now have even reviewed more than one generation of cricket bat as well. In this review i will be talking about the new 2014 GM Purist F2 cricket bat and also the differences between the original model from a few years back and the new 2014 version.

There are almost no similarities between the 2014 GM purist and the previous versions. You almost find yourself asking, “why have GM called this the purist”?

Here is the video from my previous GM purist bat review.

There are a few things you will notice from the video about the original GM purist cricket bat. Some of the characteristics of the old bat were no bow on the face, a 7mm camber ( F7 ) very small edges ( 25mm ) , little to no concaving and also a nice high spine.

The new bat is a complete contrast of the old bat. Here is the GM Purist F2 cricket bat review.

As you can see from these two videos about there are no similarities between the two bats. This also shows just how different modern cricket bats are from what they were 5 or 10 years ago.I think we also have a lot more smart people involved in cricket these days and many new designs and technologies are available and being used to produce cricket bats.

The 2014 F2 GM purist incorporates the F2 ( F-tech ) specs that GM are using on their bats this year. They feature the F2, F4.5 and the F7 specs. You can read more about those  by clicking here. Apart from the Ftech specs.

Here are a few pics of the GM Purist cricket bats fro 2014.

This is one of my favorite GM graphics as it provides a very good idea as to what the exact specs are of the bat you will be getting and is very informative.

Probably the biggest news to hit stores this winter is the news that Gunn & Moore have added a 3rd face profile to their cricket bat not only do they have the F2 ( flatter face ) and the F7 ( rounder more traditional face ) but now they also have the F4.5 which is somewhere in-between the two.

The GM bat spectrum is also a favorite of mine as it shows the exact sweetspot position of all bats side by side at a glance.

Blog review of the Gunn & Moore (GM) icon dxm original cricket bat.

The gm icon dxm original cricket bat is a fine piece of willow. Gunn and Moore have pulled out all the stops on this one.  This is craftsmanship at its finest. The icon dxm is very well balanced, beautifully finished and when you pick it up it just looks brilliant.  The bat comes with a pre-installed tow guard, Poly coat to protect the face of the bat and the GM driguard.

You will also notice that this cricket bat has a very nice curve to the face so if thats something you like then this is the bat for you.  The face of the gm icon original has about 9 grains and is a top quality cricket bat. You will be spending about $399.00 USD on this bat but it is well worth the money and if you are a serious cricketer then this is your serious bat.

this is an amazing cricket bat and the pickup is super light even though it is nice and meaty, you would never know it.
