KLUBB CRICKET BAT GRADING SYSTEM
All Klubb Cricket bats are handmade in England by one of the country’s most accomplished bat makers. As every bat is made by hand, we can ensure each bat has the best possible pick up and the optimal performance to weight ratio.
You will notice that all of our cricket bats are listed as light, medium or heavy. As a guide, a light bat will weigh between 2lb 8oz and 2lb 10oz, a medium bat will weigh between 2lb 10oz and 2lb 12oz and a heavy bat will weigh between 2lb 12oz and 2lb 14oz. Heavier bats are available on request.
The below information shows what you can expect from the different grades we offer:
Only made from grade 1 English willow. These bats will be the same quality as our Pro bats but made to your exact requirements.
Pro model cricket bats are made from high quality grade 1 English willow. Each bat will have a minimum of 6 predominately straight grains with minimum blemishes outside the playing area.
Players model cricket bats are made from high quality grade 2 English willow. Some cosmetic blemishes such as small butterfly stains and pin knots may be present, but these will not affect the performance of your cricket bat.
Performance model cricket bats are made from high quality grade 3 English willow. There may be fewer grains on a grade 3 bat and grains are less likely to be straight. Bats will contain cosmetic blemishes and pin knots, which will only affect the bat's appearance and not performance.
