Orion Willow Grading
Grade One: The most expensive willow and usually the most attractive blades. There may be some red wood evident on the blade and generally there will be at least 6 fairly straight grains. There may be a small knot or speck on the edge or back of the bat but the playing area should be clean.
Grade Two: Excellent quality but usually more red wood may be visible on the bat. This won’t affect the playability of the bat. Similar number of grains as a grade 1 with potentially the odd blemish or butterfly mark on the face.
Grade Three: The most extensively used grade – and certainly the most popular at Romida as it offers outstanding value for money. A grade 3 blade may have up to half the face with a tint or red wood colour but this won’t affect the playability. This grade will have about five grains on the face which might not be straight and there is likely to be some specks or butterfly marks on the face.
Grade Four: Usually over half the blade will have red wood but the playability will be good. There are often only 4 grains and will have butterfly marks and specks on the bat.
