Well, for once I was batting well today in practice and then I tried to play at an outswinger ... a six-inch long piece flew off the top left edge of my GM bat and crashed into the stumps. I've got league matches starting in a few weeks so I'll use team bats for now, but I plan to get one sent from India (got some relatives coming in a few months). This bat was a GM Purist Original, pretty lightweight with a good stroke, not really meant for super-power players I guess. Do you guys have any other recommendations, either from GM or some other brand, that I can get for a decent price in India (with bargaining of course ..)?
