The ever-popular Pod returns for 2020 decked out in minimalist, transition-effect stickers designed to accentuate the delightful curves of cricket’s most indulgent bat shape. With its combination of a traditional, rounder face, huge edges and a concave-sanded back, the Pod offers an excellent balance between power and manoeuvrability. Its deep, long bow sustains a mid driving area for classic front and back foot play. Nothing can match the Pod for pure performance. Salix bats are painstakingly crafted by hand, worked on with the utmost care by master batmakers as they press and shape the finest English willow into some of the world’s most iconic cricketing creations. While we understand how difficult it can be to select a bat online, we work closely with our partner brands to provide the best bat for you at each grade and price point. That way you can be assured that you will receive the best possible bat available. However, we are unfortunately unable to weigh individual bats, or to guarantee a specific number of grains per bat.

Features Include:

• Weight: 2lb 8 – 2lb 13
• Prepared finish
• New stickers for 2020 with transition-effect pattern – aquamarine “reeded” copper and black
• Traditionally rounder pressed face
• Classical bowed pressing, rerunning through the driving area
• Sculpted profile with minimal concave sanding for fullest back
• Concentration of wood in middle and spline of bat

• Highest level of artisan batmaking: individually handmade by Salix

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.
