If you are looking for a new good quality English Willow cricket bat that won’t break the bank, perhaps this review of the Club version of the adidas Libro Cricket Bat will help.
adidas have a small but quality range of cricket bats and the adidas Libro Club Cricket Bat we review is a great option for an all rounder who prefers to sweep the ball around, rather than slog or drive it off the toe.
Plus as you’ll read in our review, you’ll get a good few seasons out of the adidas Libro Club bat because of the material quality and factory installed toe cap.
First let us review what choices you get when you look to buy an adidas Libro Club cricket bat online. Though the adidas cricket bat range is quite small, the adidas Libro Club cricket bat review is available in both Short Handle and Long Handle lengths, good to know for your back or style of play.
There are also 3 different weights, Light, Medium and Heavy, in both the SH and LH models of the adidas Libro Club bat. Light adidas cricket bats are quite light compared to others, so if you prefer a cricket bat to swing slower than your arms, review a medium or heavy Libro Club Cricket bat for yourself.
It is quite a surprise that the light version of adidas Libro Club bats are so light, the quality of the English Willow used to make the bat is high. For the price around £150 GBP you get very high quality Grade 3 English Willow, this means not only is the face of the bat a fairly nice grain, the review is that you get a great knocking sound out the middle.
Talking about the middle, as I mentioned earlier in the review, the adidas Libro Club cricket bat is designed for playing shots right out of the middle of the bat, if not slightly higher.
The sweet spot on the Libro Club is certainly middle to top of the face and the weight of the spin not only supports the strike of the ball from the centre it really creates a balance point that suits sweeping or pulling shots down the leg side.
Complementing the balance and sweet-spot on the adidas Libro Club cricket bat is the very nice ‘octopus’ handle. Other adidas cricket bat reviews have explained how this handle is a subtle octagon rather than round, which gives you slightly more grip.
Kevin Peterson chooses this shape and style of cricket bat from adidas, the Libro is perfect for low to middle order batsmen and women who are in to pick up runs.
Lightweight cricket bat with traditional straight shape and good centred sweet spot for playing shots out of the middle of the bat. The adidas Libro Club cricket bat is high quality Grade 3 English Willow considering the price. It should last well too because adidas install a really good toe guard as standard on the Libro Club.
There isn’t much weight in the lower part of the face, if your shot variety favours playing a lot from the bottom of the bat, you may struggle to drive power out of the adidis Libro Club edition. I’d suggest if you want to have an impact down the off side, go with a heavier version or another cricket bat.
