I think there are loads of ridiculous names out there. The first that comes to mind is 'Kaboom'.

Modulus wasn't it?

They are my old bats, didn't get on with the Fusion but the modulus was a fantastic bat. It used to whistle as you swung it which caused no end of grief from keepers and slips.
Should never have passed it on ☹

The old V12 was a little odd, especially back then. Here's a photo, not the best but you can get the idea:



yep definitely never seen one of them before, kind of reminds me of the SS Turbo a bit....

Had one. Pick up was odd, but it flew.

If you look at ebay carefully, you can find a used Pro Performance one of these for 45 in a bundle!

The GN with the off centre handle was also a disaster.

But you cant fault the effort into innovative that GN goes for.

The GN edge was the only bat you could have in left or right handed, who came up with that idea
