The new Gunn & Moore DXM bat range is the result of a 5 year research programme into bat materials and manufacturing technology. The investment in the research has resulted in GM using superior wood conditioning. This has improved the stability and consistency of willow pre-production, a new paperless design which utilizes Computer Aid Design (CAD), improvements to the pressing operation and blade crafting by Advanced Computer Manufacturing (CAM). All DXM products are manufactured by GM, who implemented the findings of the research programme to produce innovative and high quality products. The Flare DXM, Apex DXM, Icon DXM and Hero DXM are Gunn & Moore’s latest cricket bats that make use of this production method.
The GM+ range are cricket bats of particular models, based on that particular model but manufactured bigger than the model they are based on. The + range comes standard with extended sweet spots.
Most GM cricket bats are treated with GM Dri-Guard, except for the poly coated bats. The Dri-Guard repels water from the toe area, preventing water absorption, which results in toe-swelling.
The Apex DXM is designed for batsman who favour playing with a controlled stroke. This impressive willow boasts a GM control grip, it has shaped edges at the drive zone, has an extreme lightweight design and is shaped into a GM Super Power Arc blade. South African captain endorses this bat.
