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.
