I'd never buy a CA bat from eBay, too many fakes around.
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333852451729 Looks cheaper here.
The site definitely seems genuine and they even sell their own player grade bats too. https://dkpcricketonline.com/pages/about-us I don’t have any first hand experience with them. Sorry. If you are planning on buying, maybe contact them to know more?
ah ok. that makes sense. do you know if this is a genuine site/genuine bats? also are the bats shipped or from the UK?
I would assume so. Two toned is because the wood is a mix of heartwood and sapwood. For willow, heartwood has tighter grains and hence its usually used for higher grade bats. The dark side would be harder too than the lighter side.
