The willow looked good with 7 grains, But it was painted on sides and back. I wanted to check the reviews but I couldnt find the product in Decathlon.in website with that product ID. After confirming with decathlon care I started to use it. At the sides when i started to remove paint I was shocked to see a crack inside the bat which was filled with powder. Now i got to know why it has been painted. Half of bat has hollow sound while knocking on top. The lower part is good though. The willow I got isnt ready yet or not properly dried i guess. It is leaving marks of the stitches of cricket ball. Even with your finger nails it is leaving deep marks on willow. Bought many products from decathlon and was happy customer but really disappointed with this.Not even used once in match. Trying to knock it again dont know what will happen.
I am Sajan, Product Manager for FLX. I sincerely apologize for your experience with this bat. The paint on the bat covers certain types of wood blemishes at the back of the bat. It should not affect the functionality of the bat. All our willows are soft pressed. Please do knock the bat in as per instructions below:
If you still feel the bat does not match your expectations, please feel free to contact our store to inquire about an exchange.
Our new 2019 range of Bats will hit the store in the next 2 weeks where we have avoided any painted English willow and have worked immensely on the quality performance of our bats. Looking forward to you visiting our stores to try out same.

Good thing is 2 year warranty of wood.

but not satisfied with the bottom
how to oil and knock it
I have been using this product from almost 5 months now,it is just to good to resist ,when compared to other brands this is really a good buy with such specifications and price, if it is knocked properly with oiling it wil give a good stroke play...
This is the best Bat I had played with .I have used SG, SS,puma,kookaburra. This bat have very good stroke . I bought this bat 1month ago.I have done knocking and oiling of this bat . When I played in nets ,the bat was giving a good sound .I am really happy with this bat
Best bat in this price range. If you go for another company's bat of same quality it will cost much much more. Do proper knocking and oiling before using it in matches.
my son bought this bat and played in the nets today and bat had cracks in the side and in the middle if i contact the branch they are telling me that they are not responsible for the crack please consider this
I bought this product and I seasoned it well but when I start to play with it my bat started cracking in the back and in the edges.My bat is going to break because of the crack I requested the branch for the defect they didn't consider at all I wish they take some action
