This bat has a large, powerful middle which is excellent for back foot shots. The edges are relatively powerful as well, which mean that most times the ball, if edged, will fly past the slips.
The middle is not ideally placed for driving - a bit too high but it makes up for it because it is ideal for playing across the line of the ball (not that I am saying that is a good idea!), just that it is easier to sweep, glance and cut the ball.
Gray Nicholls Powerbow Carbo - I bought the short handle carbo already pre-prepared from cricked direct and it has no seam marks on it thanks to the anti-scuff sheet. It has lasted me one season so far with me hitting my only three half centurys with it. I have had two ducks with this bat, but they were technique faults!
The bat has proven itself to be powerful when required but the excellent light pickup means that it is manouverable and powerful together, a rare combination in my experience.
I would defenitely recommend you to buy this bat, honestly, it has never let me down and is powerful enough for a big hitter yet subtle enough for easy quick singles and late cuts around the slips. A fantastic buy!
