Rs. 9,000. Nah wasn't custom made.

I'm not sure what grade it is, gingerbread man. Doesn't matter when it feels like an absolute gun.

It will matter when you hit a cricket ball with it.

But for now, feel free to swing it wildly in your bed-room impersonating an axeman

lol troll, you know grade has nothing to do with quality, it is purely aesthetic?

Also, I do not know what your problem is. You appear to share my name but aren't quite living up to the set standards. Please take your tampons and go elsewhere.

Good day.

JazakAllah Khair for this thread Blazer Bhai, MashAllah bat looks superb! Very good bat for Sher Amin, if you go and buy a Sher Amin you won't get as good as this. You paid extra Rs. 2500 (approximately) but it is well worth in my opinion.

LOL :)) Bro this is definitely grade 1, can you prove it is Grade 3?

No it won't :)

International players have used Grade 2 and Grade 3 bats too and they are very selective and for them performance matters more than us so it doesn't matter when you hit with the ball :)

As I said this bat is not Grade 3 in fact I would say it is grade 1 :)

Blazer a suggestion you might have to oil this bat :)

Let me know if you need help in oiling.

-_- the blemish on the side is so distinct, it could might be 2 separate pieces of wood.

But what do I know, you're the expert

I will say (and I do know this) is the grains are very very straight

Bats are graded based on face, not edges/back etc.

It is definitely not a laminated and it is made of one piece.

I mean the blemish on the left side of the face. Not a blemish, but a discoloration of the wood as compared to the rest. Idk what thats called

Guys please ignore my previous comments. A friend of mine uses my PP account and knows **** about bats. I may have to change my password I guess. Sorry blazer bhai...nice to know your names Obeid.

This Sher Amin is old model, hence, old stickers but when this bat was made it was Grade 1.

Now Sher Amin's are Grade 2 while MB LE is G1+ and Bubber Sher being G1.

Bat grading is over-rated..

This bat is clearly Grade 2 as noted from the blemishes found in the heartwood towards the toe.
Grade 1 means no blemishes, no heartwood.

Obeid your an idiot if you believe that. Ive seen rubbish looking grade 3 pro bats that ping unbelievably.

Yes the oiling and knocking in process will begin soon. I will let you know if I have any enquiries!

I think around 2.7 or 2.8. Once I weigh it I shall be able to give you a conclusive answer.

Bat grade has little bearing on the way the bat plays. What matters much more is the skill of the bat-maker, the weight distribution, pressing, ping (which has nothing to do with the grade), balance etc. etc.

I've seen absolutely horrible looking bats that have unbelievable ping. My current bat looks like it had branches growing from a couple of places! I'd probably put it at a grade 6 if I could, but the ball flies off it much better than many grade 1s I've seen..
