    Lax Sharma Proper pickup & Balance, Ping performance and pressing..The number of grains it’s straightness and overall look and finish of the product..For me

    Kattilamkaalai Soorapuli Balance: I have always preferred a classical bat with a spine that’s pronounced right from handle (I do not mean concavity, but the spine alone); No concavity and thick edge concepts. Just a plain and simple profile like a Slazenger V500 of 1999. A mid-low sweetspot; Weight of about 2.9 – 2.14. Pickup, not weight matters.

    Kattilamkaalai Soorapuli Most important – people talk on and on and on about ping and stuff. Handle contributes more than the willow. A good 12 or 16 piece handle. I prefer oval, being a #3 defensive mould player.

    Kattilamkaalai Soorapuli Some Indian bats are pressed too much. Pressed to death! No pun intended, the bat becomes one of dead ping if over pressed.
