  • Kashmir bats use a raw material which is much heavier -  the nature of wood
  • Looks –the grains of Kashmir willow are more embedded
  • The Punch and sound is different between English Willow bats and Kashmir willow bats
  • English Willow is softer in nature
  • The moisture content in Kashmir Willow bat is greater
  • SM get all their raw material from the number one supplier
  • Kashmir willow is getting more expensive as the Government are trying to protect the use of the raw material; hence price is gradually going up.

  • However, the Kashmir wood is very durable and if knocked in properly may last longer than the English Willow equivalent
