as my screaming cat broke this season, i decided to go for something i hadnt had before, so i popped to my local cricket dealer, picked up this iridium 4000, lovely feel and balance. after using it for the last 2 months of the season i have decided it is not very good, anything slightly off middle and it goes nowhere. nowhere near the quality of the screaming cat or woodworm that i had previously. wish i never had bought it. i would suggest staying clear of them.
