Mid to Low Sweet Spot
MRF is synonymous with leading test batsman like Tendulkar, Lara, Waugh, AB de Villiers and now Virat Kohli. Valued for their pre curved faces and lower sweet spots, these bats are guaranteed to be a game changer!
SWEET SPOT POSITION = Mid: Not too high or too low, the mid sweet spot position is the most popular setup among all cricket bats. This setup gives performance both straight and square of the wicket, while allowing players to be confident with an array of shots. This prime sweet spot position is also famous for what many refer to as a ‘balanced’ pickup.
PREPARATION = Natural: Like most cricket bats this stick needs the full preparation process before use. Take a look at the tab below for more information on this process.
BOW = Enhanced: A very aggressive sub-continental style bow made for attacking cricket & striking fear into bowlers. The extra leverage towards the toe can be an excellent tool on lower bouncing wickets.
EDGES = Big: These edges are heading close to the magic 40mm mark. Big edges make for a forgiving and powerful cricket bat with a wider sweet spot. Please be aware that junior bats can still have big edges but they will be relative to 40mm due to their size.
SPINE HEIGHT = High: A high spine maximises the hitting power of the centre of the cricket bat.
PROFILE SHAPE = Slightly Scalloped: A small amount of scalloping is seen in a very large amount of cricket bats. The goal is to save weight while still making the sweet spot as wide as possible. Even very high quality bats can contain a small amount of scalloping in order to reduce their weight.
FACE = Semi-Flat: One of the latest trends in cricket bat faces was born from the need to add some durability to the edges of flat faced bats. When prepared correctly semi-flat faces bring the benefits of slightly bigger edges, a wider sweet spot plus ‘point and shoot’ aiming of a flat face bat. A slight curve also allows batsman to be confident when using the wrists to manipulate the face angle.
HANDLE TYPE = Semi-Oval: A happy medium that brings the benefits of both oval & round handles. This shape aids alignment, slightly weakens the bottom hand for more controlled stroke play and still allows for creative use of the bottom hand.
TOE = Toe Guard: This bat has been fitted with a toe guard.
