best out of their bats; Gray-Nicolls leading centurions for centuries.

BAT GRADING & FINISHES

THE WILLOW STORY


Unique to the industry, Gray-Nicolls grow only the
finest English willow for the production of their
cricket bats. Salix Caerulea or Alba Var varieties
are grown and harvested by the Company in
a willow replenishment programme pioneered
nearly 100 years ago.

Clefts are air-dried for approximately six weeks


to ensure perfect moisture content and the very
best performance. Every aspect of the bat-making
process is carefully overseen to guarantee a
product of excellent quality.

All bats are given a final quality control inspection.


Performance is tested using a Lignum Vitae
mallet. In this way the world renowned quality and
performance of Gray-Nicolls bats is ensured.

1 UNLOADING

5 SHAPING

The willow arrives in


Robertsbridge and is cut
into roundels. The roundels
are sealed and left to dry
for a few days.

Our Master Bat Makers


ensure each bat is shaped
to provide optimum balance,
pick-up and performance.
Bats are carefully sanded
and buffed to give them
their finished look and feel.

Willow grading is initially based on the cosmetic


quality of the cleft. We subsequently combine this
early stage grading with a performance grading
policy. This means that some minor natural
cosmetic timber blemishing may be overlooked on
higher grade bats in favour of very strong blade
rebound performance.
LEGEND
Legend represents the premium 1% of available
willow, optimum cosmetic quality and strike
performance with an outstanding weight to
profile ratio.
LIMITED EDITION
Limited to the best 5% of the willow tree. All
white willow, straight grains and a clean hitting
area, optimum strike performance, clean strike
zone and even grain.

2 SPLITTING

6 PRESSING

Each roundel has


its bark stripped
and is marked ready
for splitting into
clefts. A cleft in its
roughest form is
cut and ready for
machining.

Each bat is then


pressed, compressing
the natural fibres
enhancing the
performance of each
bat and providing the
blade with its bow.

3 DRYING
The cleft is graded
at this point and left
for 6 weeks to
air-dry which reduces
its naturally high
moisture content.

7 BINDING
The handle is then
bound and glued to add
more strength.

4 HANDLE

8 LABELING

The handle is turned on a lathe


to create the perfect shape.
Each handle is then fitted
into the cleft by hand.

Finally the labels are


carefully applied and
the grip is fitted.

PLAYERS
The best 12% of the tree. Mainly white
willow with some minor pin-marks or blemishes.
Excellent rebound performance quality, clean
strike zone, slight unevenness in grain structure
are tolerated.
5 STAR
The best 40% of the tree. Up to 50%
red willow (which comes from the heart of the
tree and is favoured by many of our international
players). Strong performing blade with minor
strike zone blemishes and some deviation in
grain structure tolerated. Bats with very narrow
grains (particularly those with a red edge) are
more likely to have some inconsistency in grain
structure (evenness and straightness).
All other models are made from the remaining
willow which is all grown, felled and processed
exclusively by Gray-Nicolls.

HYPERGRIP

FACING

Tested by pro keepers, this patented, duel-height grip delivers


revolutionary performance. The unique rubber compound affords a thin grip, for superior feel.

CCT is the engineered result of understanding


how a balls impact shock waves travel towards
the user. It utilises the unique properties of
different materials to offer a combined
performance which far surpasses any single
material. Analysis has yielded lightweight
materials with unsurpassed performance.
IMPACT
BALLISTIC

SHIELD

The latest CCT innovation; this ultra-stiff foamed polymer can


render inert even the fastest balls.
P O LY

ARMOUR

The high molecular density of this polymer makes it ideal for


dissipating shock waves longitudinally within its structure. For
this reason, Poly Armour is ultra-thin and light-weight.
IMPACT

FOAM

The closed-cell structure of this foam gives optimum compression


resistance to ball impacts, while efficiently absorbing painful
shockwaves. These properties hugely reduce ball rebound, and
minimise the chance of being caught out after impact.
DIFFUSER

FOAM

This medium density closed-cell foam offers a secondary level


of shock resistance, by diffusing the shock waves within the
softer polymer structure. Only a medium thickness of this
material is needed to take the sting out of an impact.
VA P O U R

FOAM

The open-cell structure of this lightweight foam allows sweat


vapour to pass through it, for increased comfort during long
innings. Owing to the low density of this foam, it moulds well to
the users body, giving a soft feel for the perfect fit.

10 I www.gray-nicolls.co.uk

GEL

This material exhibits a high elastic flexibility, which is combined


with strong molecular cross-linking. The result is an ultra
flexible material, with enough shock absorption to give confidence
to the highest level.
KNEE

KNEE

A unique honeycomb construction gives outstanding threedimensional fit and impact dampening.
HYPERLITE

THIMBLES

Using an innovative lightweight polymer, each thimble is


40% lighter than others in the market; a weight reduction of
15% per wicket glove pair. Embossed ribs on the inside
maximise grip at the catchers` fingertips, for ultimate performance.
CRITICAL

ARMOUR

Made from CCT materials, this specially moulded component is


used exclusively on the exposed fingers of batting gloves. The
thick, pre-curved technical piece gives advanced performance,
while reducing hand fatigue when batting.
HDF

VECTOR 8 HANDLE
Every season sees new records being smashed,
and with more power comes the need for more
control. With an octagonal top hand profile
leading to a flat-sided oval bottom hand, the V8
handle gives fantastic levels of grip, and reduces
the twisting force from off-centre shots.

Laminated cork for

IMPACT+

High density impact foam with a complex molecular structure


at a fraction of the weight of more traditional materials.

HELMETS
Gray-Nicolls were the first manufacturer to
secure the endorsement of both the Australian
and British standard institutes. With these
standards being reviewed, we have ensured
they continue to meet the requirements of
todays game and have developed a new range
of helmets designed to give the batsman
confidence at the crease.

Gray-Nicolls helmets are light, comfortable and most
importantly safe. Our new fixed Apex grille has been
designed to give the player maximum coverage and
vision from a factory fitted grille. A contoured
reinforced peak has also been designed to combat
the fastest bowlers and allow the batsman to be fully
focused on the battle between bat and ball.

When opening the batting, confidence and


comfort at the crease is key. Gray-Nicolls
helmets perform at the highest level of the
game and means Im solely focused on taking
on the next challenge the worlds fastest

skin it can evaporate without having a cooling
effect on the body. Our base layer is made of
synthetic materials designed not to absorb
