REVIEW

The lightest in this list, with a comparatively high middle and a pronounced tapering-off at the toe, this one’s a great option for the teenage/female batsman who tends to rely more on timing than strength. With such a delicate pick-up, this willowy wallflower may get hidden among the Type A personalities, but what a beautiful piece it is. As Thorpe says: “The pick-up is very light but there’s a nice amount of wood in it. The weight’s not too low down and it just pings off it.”
