Salix bats are painstakingly crafted by hand, worked on with utmost care by master batmakers as they press and shape the finest English Willow into some of the world’s most iconic cricketing creations.

With a more subtle profile than a typical Salix bat, the ARC preserves the signature bowed blade, but features an extended swell that gives weight to both front- and back-foot shots. While that means you don’t get the monstrous middle of some other bats, you certainly won’t be lacking power on drives, cuts, or pull shots. The bat’s edges are still plenty large enough, and the pickup is exceptional. If you’re a skilful batsman who can play all sorts of shots, the ARC is simply an outstanding bat.
