REVIEW

On the face of it, little to choose between the two GM offerings, but the Chrome Limited Edition boasts a slightly longer handle and a higher sweet spot, allowing for a more gradual tapering-off at the toe. Perhaps more suitable to the top-order player, who tends to favour the back foot. The handle shape is the same, however, and something of a GM trademark: a subtle cone-shape, with more wood at the base around the bottom hand, encouraging greater bottom-hand control.
