For over 30 years we have been committed to making our bats in house from cleft to finish. All of our senior bats are 100% independently Salix made, by hand, to the highest levels in the industry. There is no more labour intensive bat, they are not outsourced and are totally CNC free.
Arguably the most vital part of all these processes is the pressing and this is an area in which we have specialised for many years. We pioneered the bow in English bat making and in recent years managed to combine this deep bow with the flatter face, taking another huge leap in performance. For 2021 we continue to specialise in fuller backs which offer genuine power but require complex and precise machining and sanding to preserve balance. Year on year our bats become more powerful, yet retain the magical balance, pick-up and finish for which we are renowned.
The value of a Salix remains rooted in our in house processing which handles every cleft individually. Our aim is always to maximise the potential in every blade which is made possible by our unique principles of keeping every stage in Salix hands: the bat making benchmark.
