The quality of willow is of the upmost importance in batmaking, but of equal importance to us at GM is the care we put into each English Willow bat that leaves our factory. All of our English Willow bats provide factory fitted protection thanks to GM Bat Care. The GM Now! Service encompasses all of our bats being “knocked-in” by the batmaker in-house, before raw linseed oil is applied to reduce cracking and splitting by maintaining the moisture level of the blade, whilst an clear anti-scuff cover is applied to the face and edges to increase blade durability. ToeTek DriGuard is applied to resist damp and minimise toe swelling, which in turn also reduces toe damage and feathering that that is often caused by tapping at the crease.
Selecting a cricket bat is a very personal decision. There are no right or wrong bats, the bat to choose is the one that feels most comfortable for you. We recommend that you always feel the bat before you buy it and that you pick up several bats before making your final choice. All GM DXM English willow bats are made by our own craftsmen and women in our own factory in Nottingham, England. GM 5 Star dealers carry a wide range of GM bats and will give sound advice.
