MRF Genius 360° is Grade 1 English Willow bat designed to live up to AB De Villiers' title of the white ball king. With a big profile made to his specifications it picks up light. It has a mid middle and is perfect for all round stroke play - the slightly offset middle help disperse the weight and elongates the sweet spot making for a better pick up and balance but giving it power through out the bat.
- SWEET SPOT POSITION = Mid to Low. Means Enormous sweet spot for shot in all 360°. You can enjoy strokes on the front and back foot, you can 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.
- BOW = Slight Bow: This is a combination between the traditional and large bow which is the most common when making a cricket bat. Indian sub-continental shapes are typically seen with a more pronounced bow enabling the sweet spot to be lower on the blade, ideal for play on slow and low pitches.
- EDGES = Big: Close to 40mm edges (for Senior Size), this bat has plenty of willow which makes it perfect for power hitting.
- PROFILE SHAPE = Full Profile Min Concaving: The bat has very limited wood taken out the back of the bat, therefore the wood is left where it really matters to ensure the utmost ping. It is someone that is looking at ultimate power at the forefront, then this shape may suit. The pickup will still be nice and balanced and feel superb in the hands. This is the shape that most pro’s like especially in the ODI/T20 format due to the value for strokes you receive with this profile.
- FACE = Flat Face: 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 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.
- HANDLE TYPE = Rounded to Semi-Oval: Sarawak cane is hybrid setup with rubber lamination technology that brings the best of both the worlds. This shape will slightly weaken the bottom hand for more control but still allow for use of wrists during stroke play.
- TOE = Flat and little rounded Toe: Helps minimise damage from tapping at the crease and running in, as the toe is slightly offset.
