Seems they're still stuck in the past and the days of JM & JL

Why spend 270 on it when many other batmakers could make the same shape for 100 less

I don't rate M&H bats, too many I have seen have had awful pickups and their shapes are too extreme for my tastes.

I believe as Tom has said they would do much better by letting the days of Julian alone and moving ahead. The stickers are poor, the shape unspectacular and the price tage ridiculous.

Off the mark from M&H to say the least!

Grandads? They were only found in 87! I know what you mean though, riding on a wave of nostalgia and midlife crises if you ask me

I had the old M&H Original Signature model and whilst it was a nice bat no way worth 275. I'd be hard pushed to spend 100+ on any bat, this is 3 times the price!

Can't see many oldies buying it either, but I suppose if they do sell all 100 it's a tidy profit for M&H. They're just following the trend of bringing back old models, like SS, Symonds and others have done
