GRAY NICOLLS POWERBOW 5 CRICKET BAT

A long, exaggerated bow enhanced by an imposing low profile is the perfect combination for a player looking to play the innings of a lifetime.

Test represents the premium 5% of available willow, optimum cosmetic quality and strike performance with an outstanding weight to profile ratio.
Limited to the best 10% of the willow tree. All
white willow, straight grains and a clean hitting
area, optimum strike performance, clean strike
zone and even grain.
The best 12% of the tree. Mainly white willow with some minor pin-marks or blemishes.
Excellent rebound performance quality, clean strike zone, slight unevenness in grain structure are tolerated.
The best 40% of the tree. Up to 50% red willow (which comes from the heart of the
tree and is favoured by many international players). Strong performing blade with minor
strike zone blemishes and some deviation in grain structure tolerated. Bats with very narrow
grains (particularly those with a “red” edge) are more likely to have some inconsistency in grain structure (evenness and straightness).
OTHER WILLOW GRADES
All other models are made from the remaining willow which is all grown, felled and processed
exclusively by Gray-Nicolls.
