Can come with some blemishes/specs or marbling in the main playing area having minor affect on actual 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

 

The L540 blade length combined with the sizeable offset edges provide a large dynamic sweetspot and increased power to balance ratio.

The mid swell position and beautiful bow serve to balance the bat and the concaving through the back of the profile means the pick-up is maximised.

With a sweeping spine blending into the toe, the Sparq has been engineered for controlled stoke play which will help you light up the crease.

Ideal profile for top order batters that relies on their timing wanting to play the ball on the up or off the backfoot maximizing power in precision stroke play.


 

Edges/Spine  

 

 

Comes with a high spine and big offset edge for a dynamic disbursement of power and weight and superior light pick up.


 


Middle 
Position

Concaving

Mid-High Middle ideal for front foot play on the up and for all back foot play.

 


Slight concaving for a lighter more balanced pick up. Ideal for the batter who relies on their timing and precision.

 


Pick Up


Bow

The pick up on the GM Spaq comes in usually the mid -light weight range due to the master shaping and mid to high profile the Sparq 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.
