Profile

 

With a full profile and distinctive bow, the Chroma is a bat ready to face any situation at the crease.

The spine sweeps through the swell, tapering into the toe region to enhance the pick-up of the L555 blade, hitting the sweet spot between balance and power. With a mid-swell position and considerable edge size, the Chroma offers equal value for your strokes whether you’re driving on the front foot or cross-batting off the back foot. The Chroma comes complete with striking iridescent labels, which move through a full spectrum of colour to match your full range of strokes.

Ideal profile for the aggressive stroke play of front foot drives to backfoot pull shots.


 

Edges/Spine  

 

 

Comes with a big edge and medium spine height to help disburse the power wider into the face to get more wood/power behind the ball even on miss timed strokes.


 


Middle 
Position

Concaving

Mid-Low middle Perfect for aggressive stroke play on the front foot and for the aggressive cross bat shots on the back foot.

 


Very Full profile, almost convex/domed in shape. Disbursing the power zone for a bigger sweet spot.

 


Pick Up


Bow

The pick up on the GM Chroma although comes in usually the mid weight range due to the master shaping of the profile the Chroma picks up lighter then the scale weight.

 

 

Gomes in what GM are calling their POWER ARC BOW FACE which is a standard level of bow which gets the bat just a tad early onto the ball. Which creates a better angle for the ball bouncing off the bat onto the grass helping it to race further, optimizing value for your shots.

 


Face


Toe

GM's F4.5 Face Profile meaning it's a 4.5 mm camber (face roundness), quiet round for the modern bat.

This helps to maximize the peak of the hitting zone and also helping with the durability of the bat with the round nature allowing the energy from the ball to be disbursed more evenly upon impact.

 

 
 

A semi square toe providing extra durability and strength against Yorkers of a rounded toe but keeping the effect of a perceived wider bat that you get with squarer toes giving the player more confidence when looking down on his bat.
