Powerbow6X 4 Star Cricket Bat
Style versus substance is a long-discussed debate. What's the point of looking the part if you can't perform? Is there any merit to winning if you don't look good doing it. Step forward: Powerbow6X 4 Star cricket bat. The Powerbow6X offers you the perfect solution – perfect aesthetic, brilliant performance.
We've introduced new families for 2019, but we felt that given the good feeling towards the Powerbow range, we had kept the legend alive. While the Powerbow6X will bear the hallmarks of its predecessors, it will have some distinct differences.
One thing that won't be changing is the cricket bat's low middle – a feature of the Powerbow's history. This low middle gives considerable benefits to front foot players, keen to come forward as much as possible. However, given the all-around strength of the Powerobow6X 4 Star, anyone will be able to dominate with it.
Something that we are proud of at Gray-Nicolls is how we have made even the heaviest Powerbow6X 4 Star bat feel as light as a feather. A heavy bat with a low middle has all the hallmarks of an unbalanced feel and bulky pick-up. Not on the Powerbow6X. This was achieved through the process of feathering the toe – essentially taking all the weight out of the bottom of the bat, allowing for optimal weight distribution.
Design and aesthetics wise, we felt that the Powerbow6X should stay true to previous models, but with on-trend colour palettes to give it a modern edge. For that reason, white and chrome stickers are placed on the spine and towards the toe of the Powerbow6X. These are subtle yet effective and pop under floodlights. Add to this some flashes of vibrant volt green, and we have produced a cricket bat that perfectly sits between our Classic and Test collections.
In huge news, England's highest ever run scorer has decided the time is right to return to his roots and move back into Powerbow. Having made his England debut with the original, Alastair Cook will be hoping the Powerbow6X can propel to success with Essex in 2019.
We are delighted to present to you the Powerbow6X, after months of work, late nights, and testing sessions. With design input from the likes of Karun Nair, we are confident this will be the best Powerbow yet.

How do I care for my bat?
We recommend knocking your cricket bat in before use. You may also want to add a layer of linseed oil. Store your bat in a dry place when not in use.
See our blog on how to care for your new cricket bat including tips on adding linseed oil and replacing scuff sheets here.
How do I knock my bat in?
Using an old ball in a sock or a Deluxe Bat Mallet, hit the face of your cricket bat to condition the wood. You can also hit the edges of the bat with glancing blows, and gently hit the toe. You do not need to knock in the splice (top) of the bat.
