Looking for a new cricket bat
Hi guys, I'm a junior cricket player in Australia and I'm looking for a new cricket bat during the off-season while I still train.
I am as big as any normal adult though and my previous bat a Predator 500 only available in WA was a really good light quality bat.
But now I feel it is not the type of bat required and I need a bigger bat to play all my shots.
I could go with the safe and expensive option of buying bats from well regarded cricket stores such as Meulemans Cricket Bats & Equipment Australia or I could try get a cheap deal off the net.
I have a liking for the SS Ton Matrix and while it is a rare sight in Australia I know it is the real bat many including ponting use. The official SS site lists it as 12800 Rp or 300 aus dollars.
A local dealer in my city SS TON MATRIX Mens Cricket Bat has it for $450 and if I have issues I can sort it out and I can personally talk and feel the bat.
However I see that I can have a cheaper deal with a website and even with shipping costs will be only $275 aus SS Ton Matrix Cricket Bat £149.99 - Cricket Supplies, Bats, Pads, Gloves, Shoes from Duck & Run.
Any advice on what I should do?

The good thing about buying from England is that you dont have to pay VAT so it is cheaper. The exchange rate is good at the moment too.
I prefer them to do the roll, sleeve and pre knock in for me too.
