DSC: BROWSE AND BUY

DSC FLIP 2.0

Set aside your preconceptions about DSC bats, because this one flew.

Though it scored low on appearance, it came in high on performance thanks to its light pick-up and monstrous middle.

One judge said he walked into the net looking like Rory Burns but came back feeling like Garry Sobers.

Initial impression: 6.8
Build quality: 7.3
Pick-up/feel: 7.5
Performance: 8.1

RRP: £320

DSC PERLA X3

DSC's cheaper offering does not match up to the higher-end Flip 2.0 in terms of build quality and performance, but the middle still delivered well enough if you could find it.

It should be a solid purchase for a certain type of cricketer.

Initial impression: 6.5
Build quality: 6.5
Pick-up/feel: 6.6
Performance: 6.3

RRP: £140

Weight: 2lb 8oz
