Butterfly - Butterfly Grade English Willow. Bats made from these clefts can have a natural stain in it, which can vary from a small mark, to a lot of colour thoughout the blade. Grains can also vary. Whilst this is usually our cheapest grade, this is purely down to the cosmetics of the willow - as the performance is fantastic. Usually these clefts are inherently stronger due to the stain, but they usually only come in medium-heavy weights.
All of our bats are crafted and pressed to ensure maximum performance, every bat is made with a top quality cane handle to improve the performance and durability. The grading will mainly be on the aesthetics and the size/weight of the cleft as all of our bats should perform to the best of their abilities.
