Willow

 

Comes in GM's Signature Grade which is akin to Grade 2 English Willow. 

Great quality willow, can come with some specks or wobbles purely aesthetic in the main playing area with minimal to no affect on performance.


 

Handle

 

Medium to thick SEMI-OVAL Handle tapering to Round at the top.

Constructed in top quality 4 piece Singapore Cane with 3 cork insert handle making for top quality power transfer into the ball and a premium feel in the hands.

Fitted with GM's Pro-Lite grip, the lightest grip GM have ever made, which strikes the balance between grip and feel 


 

Profile

 

Engineered for maximum power and precision, the Icon L555 DXM has a mid to high swell position with the spine going all they into the toe to ensure the very best stroke play all around the wicket, in any conditions.

The full concaved back profile combined with the lightweight profile design maximises pick-up and provides perfect balance.

Ideal profile for the player that wants to maximize power from timing and stroke play.


 

Edges/Spine  

 

 

Comes in very high spine and medium thick edges concentrating on the lighter pick up to get the hands through the ball quickly.


 


Middle 
Position

Concaving

Mid - High middle position perfect for backfoot play or driving on the up, coupled with a spine running all the way to the toe to get power through the ball from those front foot drives! Bit of an all rounder for timing/stroke play.

 


Comes in a concaved profile concentrating the power of shots right in the middle of the bat. For those that know their game well and are looking to maximise power from timing their strokes.

 


Pick Up


Bow

The pick up on the GM Icon sticking true to the theme are designed for a light pick up and the perfect balance feeling even lighter then their 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 rounded 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.
