Most Ebay bats that sell for around that price are not genuine. They'll be cheap Indian willow that claims to be 'English Willow nurtured in India' which is effectively Kashmir with RBK stickers popped on. That means they're very prone to cracking and will often break within a year of full use. I'd advise spending a fair amount more than €40 if you want to get a decent bat that's actually going to last longer than a few months. Gunn and Moore are probably the best mainstream brand going around atm. Every 2009 G+M I've seen so far has been of superb quality. I've got an Icon DXM 909 myself and it's a brilliant bat, easily the best I've had.
