Welcome to PakPassion mate, I hope you enjoy your stay here :)

No nothing wrong everything is perfect :)

A tricky question, I haven't owned a Screaming Cat and didn't get my hands on Laver & Woods but personally I would say two of the best in the world are Jullian Millichamp and James Laver whne it comes to make handmade bats.

Gray Nicolls bats are also handmade while Salix along Newbery [I think] are too.

L and W for sure............I have never owned one........but used many. Very expansive, but worth every penny, thats for sure.

I paid 360 Pounds for Laver & Wood Reserve and got a free net bat and this is shipping included to Canada and knocking, facing, cover, double grip, lamitoe, toe guard etc all is included too.

Distinction shape is amazing and I love it! One of PakPassion member (AamerM Bhai) has it and he reviewed it;

Knightrider has been to Mapperly Sports many times as he lives near them.

They stock Gray Nicolls, GM, Puma, Newbery along many other brands but not Salix as far I know.

Who says handmade is better?
Do you want a piece of machine forged steel or handmade from a blacksmith?
The only difference is the humans who will program the machines.

CD,

How would you compare GM, GN and BoomBoom.

I agree!

It is not necessary that handmades are going to better than machine made. In fact, machine mades are more accurate rather than hand mades.

In terms of big hitting.

For slogging you need to middle and time well :D

But in my opinion best one as the name suggest would be Boom Boom :D

What about for solid defence and wonderfully timed coverdrives/leg glances?

Every bat can be used for slogging, cover drives, leg glance etc it is just you need to make good use of them and improvise them well!

I have seen some big six being hit by Slazenger V200 and some beautiful drives.

So how do you decide which bat is for you? There are so many companies...

Thanks again.

It depends on your playing style and bat shape not brand name
