New for 2016, the Merlin has been specifically designed to create a super-light pickup, while still offering the power to play through the field. An exclusive, patent-pending counterbalance handle makes the bat feel 3oz lighter, enabling quicker reaction times – particularly useful when facing fast bowlers.

The counterbalance is made from Lignum Vitae, the densest trade wood in the world, allowing efficient redistribution of weight in a small area. The blade itself, meanwhile, is crafted from premium English Willow, ensuring classic performance and long-lasting quality.

For players that base their game on reactions and quick decision-making, the Merlin could be the difference between a perfectly timed shot and a spiralling off stump.



Please be advised that we are unable to physically weigh individual bats.

We are also unable to guarantee the number of grains the blade of a bat might have.
Bat ID

It was not long ago that the only way to distinguish your cricket bat from the next was to apply your name or initials on the shoulder of the bat with the black permanent marker. Thankfully times have changed, and the ability to truly 'Personalise' a product to your own individual requirements is now available to all.

At Pro-Direct Cricket we are pleased to now offer full personalisation to professional and club players alike and find many players now utilise the highly professional service to both enhance their chosen cricket bat and to lessen the risk of loss.
