Id love to see them go back to basics where they offer *****  **** *** ** * for there bats, 5 star being the very best and going down from there. Possibly a bit old fashioned but it once worked well in my opinion.

Id like to see a leading maker speak to there top sponsored player and make an exact replica of there bat in terms of shape profile pick up weight etc etc even if its not a bat from there own range if that makes sense but at least offer something that resembles the pros bat.

I do like that idea about the pro bats mate, however it would be hard for a company to pick a top sponsored player, GM would be tough with Smith, Trott, Watson etc... Gray Nics would also be hard with Strauss, Cook, Chanderpaul etc... Kookaburra would be Ponting though. Puma would probably be Kieswetter or North. Slazenger would be tough between Clarke and Colly.

Think it would be pretty simple bud all they have to do is pick there top sponsored player and make an exact replica of the bat, GM could do say 3 as could as could some of the others. Would be nice to see exact replicas of the top players on the market available on general sale. Saying that I'm pretty sure they would want to charge the earth fr it.

Yeah good point mate, I had the idea of just the one player from each brand in my book. GM could certainly do it with their CNC machine.
