Profile

 

The GM Diamond range has been made in conjunction with England’s World Cup winning all- rounder Ben Stokes, and has been given a dynamic new look for 2022.

The bat was designed with Ben in mind and the results have been clear to see. His Man of the Match performance in the 2019 World Cup final was just a warm-up for arguably the greatest Test Match innings ever played at Headingley against Australia in the Ashes just a few weeks later, providing two once-in-a-lifetime innings in one summer.

GM bats are undoubtedly Made by England’s Best, for England’s Best. Featuring a shorter-than-traditional blade length at 540mm and boasting a large sweet spot, the Diamond allows for unparalleled ball-striking confidence. The shorter blade length also provides fantastic balance, creating a perfect pick up and feel.

The mid swell position, traditional full blade profile and flowing contoured spine combine to show off a smooth and well-rounded bat profile, ideal for dynamic stroke-makers.

Ideal profile for aggressive batters wanting to power the ball on frontfoot & backfoot looking to take the game on all around the wicket.


 

Edges/Spine  

 

 

Comes with a big edge and medium spine rounded off into the toe looking to maximise all forms of stroke play.


 


Middle 
Position

Concaving

Mid middle profile a great option for batters that play 360 degrees of the wicket of both backfoot and front foot.

 


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

 


Pick Up


Bow

The GM Diamond comes in usually the mid weight range but due to the master shaping and mid profile the Diamond 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 round 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.
