    Really intrested in it as it seems completley new and different to the old range has any1 got any views?

    Also how u took the news that the ballistic range has been dropped. Sad.

    im not entirely sure, but it looks like slazenger have bascaly given their current range new stickers, the air blade of 2009 was meant to be ultra light, the v1 is light, the hyper blade was meant for agression, the v2 is "for agressive strokeplayers" and the i blade is meant for prescision and....what a coincidence, the v3 is merant for prescision.

    the only thing thats changed is the v2 has a low sweetspot wheras the old hyper blade had quite a high one.

    but il tell you now, paul collingwood has switched to a lighter bat, so he will not need bottom hand and his performance will improve.
    ayyyye, and also, matt prior will get better with the more meaty bat so he can score more easily, things are looking good for england. jack kallis (cant spell his first name) has the v2 witch is bad for him because i have a bat with a low sweet spot and it is HORRID. and every other bat like it is exactly the saem, HORRID!. so england are in buisness for the seris in sa.

    should do, becos if u talk to any coach, they will say a heavy bat means u need more strength, and if you dont have it, you use more bottom hand in straight bat shots. so it should make a difference.

    it did with me, i had an old hunts county pulse, it was horrid, and i didnt have any control over it, but now im on the old gunn and moore icon, much better.

    The V3 is a radically different shape. Nothing like any of the Slazenger's on the market or any other bat.

    Also Matt Prior etc don't necessarily use Slazenger bats and if they do they're not made to the shop shapes. They just use the corresponding stickers.
