Our highest quality English willow cricket bat is designed with a concave profile.
Made from carefully selected clefts by our Master Bat Maker in our Maidstone workshop, our Red Stag Grade 1 English Willow Cricket Bat has been designed and developed with a concave/scalloped profile to reduce the bat’s weight whilst keeping the essential depth and mass of the wood necessary for a much lighter pick-up. Our Red Stag cricket bat also maximises the edge profile for top power when hitting the ball and reduces rotation of the blade in off-centre hits, minimising power loss.
A fantastic cricket bat with mid sweet spot and great ping. Ideal for all-round stroke makers, who are comfortable on the back and front foot.
Size SH (Short Handle) as standard, which is recommended for adults between 5ft 9ins up to around 6ft. For a longer handle or custom cricket bat, please get in touch with our expert team of bat makers.

Grade 1 English Willow
Grade 1 is the highest grade of English willow, meaning the wood is natural and unbleached, with perfect straight grain (minimum of six grains visible), no blemishes or marks on the blade.

Taking care of your cricket bat
Apply a toe guard to protect the bottom of your cricket bat. Make sure you store your cricket bat horizontally in a cool, dry place. Avoid areas that get hot (near a radiator, boiler, windows, fireplaces, etc.)
