These coloured bats are just wrong! They look plastic and I imagine the finish will be ruined in not very long.

Couldn't agree more!

Cheap marketing ploy for the kids to use in backyard cricket.

clever marketing ploy perhaps to shift the fugly/low grade willow and recoup some finances?

It's prob the product designer in me but I really struggle when this is being called an "innovation" by some people. Painted bats were done in the now infamous Stanford T20 all those years ago.

This just isn't cricket. Coloured gloves are bad enough and these are just abominations. These are only excusable in T20 and that's pushing it.

Nice Kwik Cricket bat :)
