Kashmir Bats

A high quality English willow is more expensive than a high quality Kashmir willow. Also, an English willow has a better ping off the bat and is lighter compared to a comparable quality Kashmir willow, leading to better bat speed and ping off the bat.

As Kashmir willow is not quite as strong as its English counterpart, the striking area of these bats will need to be covered with a protective film and will also require knocking in and oiling with raw linseed oil, if possible.

These bats are mainly designed for use with a Windball or Tennis ball as the performance and lifespan may be shortened significantly when used in Hard Ball Cricket.
