- new for 2019
- traditionally rounder pressed face
- classical pressing with a hint of bow
- full back profile with very high spine
- concentration of wood in middle and spline of bat
- greatest core strength in range
- profile dominated by swell of spline, tapering into edges
- minimal bow
- low driving area
- slightly duck-billed toe
- pronounced oval handle
- for upright high-order batsmen
- stunning new labels in soft copper, white beading, textured combination matt-gloss black and metallic blue
- highest level of English artisan batmaking, all individually handmade by Salix
- CNC free manufacturing, individual in-house pressing and processing from cleft to bat
- Pressed with less bow and a very high spline, the dramatically profiled new X harks back to our pre-bow Praestantia, now reinvented with current all-encompassing pressing.
- A contemporary rework of a traditional shape, the set of the pronounced oval handle is slightly further forward; the balance between blade and handle is exact.
- The bladefeels indulgently and deceptively softbut it has still had serious pressure and very careful pressing.
- The combination of the traditional face and high spine creates the greatest core in the range, and absolute controlled power.
- This is a very English shape but a complex high-performance bat, all encased in exquisite beaded copper labelling
- X equals both the origins and the future of English cricket bat making.
