The HK 111 has been manufactured with a combination of premium Grade 1 willows. It differs from other bats in the HK range by the grading of the willow and cane handle, the physical appearance of the grains and prominence of the fibres between the grains. The grading in the HK 111 bats follows the same exclusive principles in the mid SM range, namely the Patriot and Sultan.
This cricket bat has been designed to be super light to pick up and is beautifully balanced (ergonomically designed) to reduce the overall weight suiting female cricketers, yet deliver maximum power while increasing the quality of the rebound. The bats include vibration reducing technology in the bats handle that increases the size of the bats Sweet Spot!
The super shock absorbent handle is made from 100 per cent Singapore manau cane and the edges of the bat are extra thick to enhance the sweet spot. The face of the bat features a customised anti-scuff sheet and there is a composite toe guard. All cricket bats in the HK Collection have been quality tested which includes being pre-knocked for around 400 strokes using world class machinery invented by SM.
