Oooh! I loved instincts graphics, and the bats were pretty good - sourced through Brimblemort, so either TK's or maybe Larsons. The couple I used were really, really good, but nothing revolutionary, simply good sourced willow I think.

How about -

Itias (best softs ever Tom!)
Bosom Bats
Blenheim
FatBats
Helios
Crusader
Kali
Centurion

A lot of people in our league used to use the Centurian gear as one of the players pushed it a bit.

Was decent kit and the bats always seemed to perform well.

They had a model of pad that was similar to the Surridge pads Gooch wore with a strange knee joint!

Any more details on the brand or what happened to them?

I think it was all imported and stickered up, but it was good stuff. They did a bat in a similar shape to a Jumbo. was endorsed by Devon Malcolm I think (which come to think of it, may have affected it's longevity!)

Re-appeared briefly in Essex a few years ago.

Also used by some West Indies players, Roger Harper and Courtney Walsh definitely. And Tufnell.

Just got to thinking about a few brands that have disappeared over the years, or more interestingly, ones that don't seem to be stocked as much or have lower profiles:

Ihsan
AS
AM
Surridge (bust?)
Matrixxxxx
Hammer
Roman Jaques
Kicking Horse
Funky

Do they just drift away through lack of marketing, do they need players on telly using their stuff to raise profile?

AM Bats - quality bats - like most Pakistani brands they don't market themselves well and they used to have the most horrible stickers but have improved massively now with Monarch and Excellent model bats.

Way better value than some of the more well known brands.  Think Fusion used be pushed everywhere... I also remember classic bat co and Zenith back in the day...

I missed the whole kerfuffle that got Lekka banned and my own first contact wasn't pleasant. I have noticed though he has calmed down.

Maybe invite him back? (He says while lighting the touchpaper and running away bravely)

I've always bought direct from them. Don't think they have an official distributor. See some on ebay. Think UZI Sports used to sell them and am sure they could still source them?

We should bring back Pinson, fasteddie and Lekka, put them in a single thread and watch the carnage unfold
