CA Plus 8000 is another solid performer from CA Sports. It offers great value and performance at an incredibly reasonable price. Boasting impressive design, strong profile, and unparalleled pick-up, it is a great option for dominating, orthodox stroke makers who like to score big and win matches on their own. This bat comes with a full-length bat cover and factory fitted toe guard.
SWEET SPOT POSITION
Mid: Suitable for the 'complete' batter. This means if you enjoy strokes on the front and back foot, you play on all types of wickets and you want the largest area for the sweet spot. This popular sweet spot position creates a balanced pickup.
Large Bow: A large bow acts as a counter-balance, raising the center of gravity of the cricket bat, thereby assisting pick-up. In other words, a bat with a considerable bow and a lower-middle can feel the same as a straight blade with a higher middle.
Big: Close to 40mm edges (for Senior Size), this bat has plenty of willows which makes it perfect for power hitting.
Full Spine: This bat is created to ensure a lightweight pickup with slight concaving to help control the weight. We would recommend this profile for a player who likes the spine running right through the toe and looking for a light bat with the sweet spot being positioned mid to high. Ideal for players who play of the back foot and enjoy using their wrists to pierce the field.
Flat Face: This was a face profile that was introduced in the early 2000’s. It is done to give the appearance of the big bats we all know today. It allows the bat maker to press the bat lighter and get a great ping in the sweet spot. It takes a touch longer for the bat to 'open up' but once it does the ball stays hit.
Round: Suitable for bottom hand dominant players looking for more freedom to use their wrists.
Semi Square Toe: The main reason for a Semi square toe is that it helps minimize damage from tapping at the crease and running in, as the toe is slightly offset.
