Know Your Bat
Weight is the essential part of buying a bat. The heavier bats are durable and provide more power to the shots. A lighter bat will allow you to play all the shots with faster bat speed and better control. English Willow Bats are lighter than Kashmir Willow. So, you should select your bat according to its feel and pickup. Sometimes heavy bats feel lighter due to smart bat making technique. It also depends on your hold.
In general, the rule is light bats for controlled players and slightly heavier bats for the aggressive and attacking stroke makers.
