Saw this going for a good price so I thought I'd buy it because cricketer13 bhai told me Iridium is a great bat and as I had said earlier he knows how I play and what type of player and how good I play so I am 200% sure he won't do or suggest anything wrong to me, both of us like brothers I would say :D

Anyways, got my hands on this bat today and to me it feels great! I didn't do the mallet test yet but it feels great I would say. In fact, to me it feels better than my Iridium 3000. I love the shape of this bat hence I bought second one but the lower end is for nets and dew conditions which is morning games (T25).

A guy in UK [Yash] was selling this at a good price and I know his bats are quality. His service was superb and he was very quick in shipping the bat etc etc so thanks to him for his brilliant service.

Again won't write a long review to waste your time so if you have any question(s) or criticism please don't hesitate to ask me.

Enjoy!

Not sure if this would be of any help but I had few throwdowns with the 3000 yesterday and believe me it was amazing! I played few front foot strokes and trust me they felt great! Overall sweetspot looks very long but will update you guys after using this and comparing it with GMs

Because it hasn't been used yet :( :(

Not sure if I should use this in tomorrows nets or something else.

Will probably use Icon or Harlequin, am confused!

LOL I still haven't used it to be honest.

Iridium 3000 is absolutely a gun of a bat!

If I'm not mistaken CAlibre has lower middle compared to this.

Yes you are right Calibre does have a lower middle and that is why I choose that bat :)

Do you think the Puma bats like the puma softs are also made in India?

Top of the line Puma bats like 5000/6000 are made in England by Robert Pack.

They are brilliant bats, I like Puma and there finishing is exceptional as well. They are amazing bats.

I was wondering the same......
The new one is going for 323 bucks at Prodirect

The profile looks the same....they are just different stickers, so frankly speaking i don't mind old or new

My first choice was Oblivion LE, but then i saw Calibre going for half the price, that is why i decided for Puma

pumas are nice bats, they have very good willow asthetically you should be happy with it

Good move :)

Gray Nicolls is my favourite brand however I think Puma is the only company which have appealing force which draws you to them.
