The Hammer Kryo is like the Porsche Cayenne because it is a utility cricket bat with a Porsche engine. It is superbly powerful and also superbly durable. It is much like the Hammer Patriot. Like the Porsche Cayenne it packs a lot of punch in a lightweight and aesthetically pleasing blade. Mid sweet spot and it differs from the Porsche in that it is a very fairly priced cricket bat for a truly world class batting experience.
GM is the most reliable cricket bat manufacturer in the world. The GM Mana is their latest bat for 2016 and it is superb. It is impressive on the eye and oozes class much like the Bentley Continental. The GM Mana Original is made from Grade 1 English Willow and you can rest assured that GM gets the cream of the crop when it comes to the willow. Like a Bentley it is pleasing on the eye and luxurious to use (if that is possible for cricket bat). It has a superbly light pick-up and a mid sweet spot with virtually no flaws. It is flawless, want to bat with the Bentley cricket bat, then why not give the GM Mana Original a go for 2016.
The Audi A4 is a classic car and their newest model is shaping up to be a very sought after commodity. The same can be said for the New Balance DC1080 cricket bat. In general, New Balance is the fastest growing cricket brand. Big marquee players like Steve Smith, Joe Root and Ben Stokes are really flying New Balance cricket equipment flag really high. This is for very good reason. Bats like the New Balance DC 1080 have very traditional look but with some great quirks. Quirks like the minimal concaving and the oh so sweet mid sweet spot. The New Balance DC 1080 should definitely be high on your list of sought after bats in 2016.
There is no doubting that from all the cricket bats available for 2016 the adidas Pellara Elite is one of the coolest cricket bats out there. If James Bond played cricket in 2016, he would use an adidas Pellara Elite. Besides for being an aesthetically gorgeous cricket bat, it is an absolute high performance cricket bat. It has a slightly lower than middle sweet spot but great power has been imparted to a bat with a really superb balanced feel. This bat is a superb buy for the upcoming season.
The Kookaburra Ghost 500 is where extreme power and beauty meet. It is perhaps the most powerful in the vast range of cricket bats that has been produced for 2016 by Kookaburra. A slightly shorter blade and longer handle means that there is no bat built for power hitting like the Kookaburra Ghost 500. Superb English Willow and the super spine that grace all of Kookaburra’s bats and you have the complete luxury 4×4 of cricket bats. There is no better place than cricketstoreonline.com to scoop up one of these beauties today before they are gone. These will not last long.
