If you missed Gunn & Moore Purist Cricket Bat from the 1990s, you’re in luck because it’s back now! It was so popular in the past that Gunn and Moore decided to bring it back, with a few small changes.
Be sure to stop by your cricket store ( Like www.cricketstoreonline.com )for this great bat and other cricket equipment from these top brands: Gray Nicolls, Kookaburra, Slazenger Cricket, and Adidas Cricket
I mentioned that the Gunn & Moore Purist Cricket Bat is different from its previous version. Gunn and Moore has updated this bat by making it bigger and giving it a slightly different shape that allows it to pick up a little better.
A bit unique to Gunn and Moore, the Purist bat has pretty large edges. The edges on this bat are also offset, allowing for an expanded sweet spot. The offset edges on the Gunn and Moore Purist bat also provide power and help in a great deal with the pickup.
For the Purist cricket bat, Gunn and Moore has given it a player shape by leaving more wood in the center and at the edges, with a little less wood at the top. Not to worry, though. It’s still a solid Gunn and Moore bat. Like with all Gunn and Moore cricket equipment, you can be sure you’re getting great quality.
One of the elements of the older version of the Purist cricket bat that Gunn and Moore did keep is its slightly lower sweet spot. The placement of this sweet spot is great for the front foot batsman. Even with a lower sweet spot, the Gunn and Moore Purist cricket bat his very nicely all over.
The Gunn and Moore Purist cricket bat is part of the Gunn and Moore F2 series. This means that while it’s still a flat faced bat, it’s got a 2 mm camber to help with surface cracks. Gunn and Moore also uses players grade English willow to construct these cricket bats.
If you’re looking for a great quality affordable cricket bat, take a look at the Gray Nicolls Maverick 2014 Cricket Bat. This Gray Nicolls bat is a great entry-level style bat. It’s perfect if you don’t want to spend a lot of money, but still want a bat that hits hard.
Check out Cricket Store Online for more from Gray Nicolls and these other great brands: Gunn and Moore, Adidas Cricket, and Kookaburra.
The Gray Nicolls Maverick 2014 Cricket Bat has a very thick profile. It’s got big edges at about 40 mm, and a high spine at about 62 mm. In order to keep the edges nice and thick and exaggerate their size, Gray Nicolls has kept the face of the Maverick bat completely flat.
Like I said, Gray Nicolls has made its 2014 Maverick cricket bat a very thick bat, and the weight reflects that. These cricket bats are available in weights Medium, Heavy, and Extreme, which ranges from about 2:9 to 3:0 and higher. The pickup on the Gray Nicolls Maverick 2013 bat is nice, and feels its weight.
The Gray Nicolls Maverick 2014 Cricket Bat has a twelve-piece semi-oval cane handle with a half moon grip. This is a quality Gray Nicolls handle and gives the bat a very comfortable feel. The Maverick bat also comes with a toe guard
The sweet spot on the Gray Nicolls 2014 Maverick bat is mid-blade. However, it does ping nicely higher up on the bat as well, so the Maverick bat is good for hooking and pulling as well as driving. With a fair amount of concaving and an even bow, the Gray Nicolls Maverick cricket bat is thick yet comfortable.
Crictech custom made cricket bats
So a few weeks ago i started with this series of blogs about crictech custom made cricket bats. Well im pleased to announce i have the cricket bat, have knocked it in and am taking it to the nets this evening. Not only will it be me using the bat but also two USA national team players. Crictech have told me they may not like the bat as the bat is custom designed for me but thats ok. Im keen to get their impressions of the idea and what they think of the process of using the hotspot impact marker sheets.
To purchase and find out more about crictech, click here.
My initial impression of the bat when i opened the box was Wow, my very first, personally designed, custom made cricket bat.
It took me a little while for the stickers to grow on me and now when i look at it i like it more and more. There is just something special about owning a custom made bat that no other big brand out there can offer. Without a doubt of all the bats i now own as a cricket store owner, this crictech custom is my favorite. Other bats i have may be better, may have bigger meat, bigger sweetspots, bigger edges etc etc etc, but this one is my favorite and is probably the only bat i own that is not for sale. ( except also maybe the bat i scored my first 100 with. )
The balance on the bat is as good as its gets. It weighs about 2-3 oz heavier than it ctually feels. The pickup is very light. The bat is aggressive with powerful edges and a slight concave on the back profile. It has a slight bow to the face of the bat and the entire package comes together very nicely.
The whole process came together from order placement to bat in my hands in less that a month and Richard from crictech says the bats can be made in as little as 15 days. Thats pretty impressive considering you wait about 5 weeks for a laver and wood.

I remember when waiting for this bat i was like a little boy again waiting for a christmas present. Since i started this company two years ago i haven’t had that feeling for new gear coming in as i see hundreds of cricket bats come and go through my store. And thats what makes crictech special. They really are offering you that special feeling again when buying a cricket bat. Its an extension of your arms, your sword as you go into battle and it may even save your life as you protect your body against rib tingling snorters.
If you are in the market for a new bat i suggest you think about crictech, no kit is complete till you have your own custom made cricket bat.

So far i have been really impressed with the new Boom Boom cricket bats. The fact is that Boom Boom is actually a company called UK based company called Essentials 99. They have been making cricket equipment for quite some time and are in the process of setting up their own factory in india.
As of recently i really like the Boom Boom bats and have now also added it to my own kit bag. The boom boom bats come in three different wood grades. the 175 range is grade 1, the 150’s are grade 2 and the 130’s are grade 3 english willow.
This is the Blaze 175 cricket bat which means it is the mid sized bat. average profile so you get bats that are medium weight and heavy weight. All of the Boom Boom bats only come with 1 grip and some come with a toe guard. They also do not come with a bat cover. this is an attempt to keep costs down and make sure their bats stay affordable. With the top of the line 2010 boom boom bat only costing $350 USD it is much better priced than any other bat maker.
Whilst you don’t get the same manufacturing quality as say a Newbery at the end of the day the willow is the same and will hit the ball just as far, if not further. I like the raw quality of these new boom boom bats and am very impressed.
– Available in Grade 1 English Willow
– Top quality 9 piece cane handle
– 2lb 8oz – 2lb 13oz weight range
– Mid to low sweet spot
Massive edges and a high spine give this bat a huge confidence boosting profile. The slight concave scooping either side of the spine, gentle bow and slightly higher sweet spot allow for an amazing ‘pick up’ with this bat.
Like i said, i really like these new Blaze cricket bats from boom boom and you can buy with confidence. call me on 1.888.470.4746 or email me at email@example.com
What is the “Carbo” You might be asking yourself. I know when i first heard the term, thats is exactly what i asked. Well now i have done the research and know exactly what it is. Actually, its pretty simple.
Its a natural willow blade with a reinforced Carbon Fibre Handle. The Carbon Fibre is added to the handle’s stress point giving extra reinforcement. The Carbon Fibre gives a slight flex to the handle without compromising stability, but still giving assured power in the hitting zone. here is a picture showing where the stress point is.
This gray nicolls carbo cricket bat is a very fine piece of willow. When i played around with it i noticed the bat is very light but still has a huge power profile and has super thick edges. Ive been searching for a bat that is nice and meaty that is still very light.
This cricket bat comes with a tow guard, poly coat and the popular carbon reinforced handle. the price is around $289 dollars and is well worth the price.

I like to give away discount vouchers and free cricket balls. not to mention the mongoose cricket bat im giving away on the 10th of december.
I was initially a bit suspect about this cricket bat and honestly i still am. Youtube is filled with mixed feeling about these new bats. Some people hit the ball 10 yards further than more traditional bats & other hit them 10 yards shorter.
As i’m holding one of these bats here on my lap right now as i write this blog entry, i must say i am really intrigued and would love to take one of the mongoose bats out in a game and give it a try. Its quite interesting because the bat doesn’t have a splice or even a separate handle. Its all made out of one piece of willow. English grade 1 english willow by the way.
Here is a short video review that you can watch of the mongoose cricket bat. watch all the way through for a chance to win this bat.
This bat comes with a natural finish which means there is no polycoat which now allows you to oil your bat whenever you choose. Strangely there isnt a pre-fitted toe guard on the bat, so you will have to take care of that yourself. This Mongoose mmi3 bat has a super long handle. look at the picture below to see how it compares to a regular cricket bat.
This bat is available for you right now at www.cricketstoreonline.com for an amazingly low price. Just $259.00. I will also give you free shipping to anywhere in the USA for this bat.

The Gray Nicolls Evo 1000 cricket batting gloves like all more expensive gloves i have reviewed are really really nice. Gray nicolls have really out done themselves here with these awesome batting gloves. The quality of the leather is top notch and they are also really comfortable.
These cricket batting gloves offer supreme quality, breathability and also protection from pace bowlers at any level. I found that even after a long innings that my hands stayed dry ( ish ) and my fingers or hands never really got tired. You see, the gloves are moulded so that you dont need to flex your hands around the bat, using up energy and fatiguing your hands. All you need to do is use the least amount of energy to actually hang on to your bat.
You will feel comfortable in these cricket batting gloves and you will also have supreme control of all your shots.
