We only take their top 3 grades and do not use inferior grades. This policy protects B3 customers and ensures the highest quality finish and performance when choosing B3 cricket bats. Below we explain the differences in willow grades. Please note, Standard Grades are always available but Exclusive Grades are limited and therefore subject to availability. STANDARD GRADES 3 Stripe
Grade 1 –These are the best grade of willow used by professional players. The bat has perfect straight grains with no blemishes or marks on the blade of the bat. These are very expensive and range from £400 – £750. Grade 2 –Premium unbleached English willow, with straight grains with some blemishes and marks on the blade of the bat. Price range from approx £300 – £400. Grade 3 –Unbleached willow, with possibly less grains and blemishes/colouring on the bat blade. £150 – £300.
A Grade 4 Blade is normally over half colour or contains butterfly stain (see our page on Imperfections in Willow). It will still play as well as the other grades. Any number of grains are possible with often only 4 grains, the willow containing ‘butterfly’ stain is very strong, there could also be more “speck” and other faults.
The only thing that you can be sure of with the grading system is that a grade one bat will look nicer than a grade two, three or four bat. This is because cricket bats are mainly graded on looks.
