Brands You Hear a lot Less Of
« on: January 09, 2018, 02:25:53 PM »

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?

A gun is no more dangerous than a cricket bat in the hands of a madman.

@Churchy1989  - ooh! That's interesting about Swannack, they even do a Jumbo copy - I was quite interested until I saw the prices!!!

I think they might be based somewhere in Surrey?

Always wanted a Ps bat as a kid. One of the seniors had one and it was a gun.

I love how they've called the middle of one of their bats the 'power hump'


'Lovely, got that one right out of the power hump'     -   Only to be read in the voice of Swiss Tony. (or Alan Partridge)

What happened to Willostix! Craved their gear when I was a kid, had a great social media and forum presence too. In fact, I managed to find an old junior Willostix Salamander last year as a gift to my partner here in Michigan- she loves it!

The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.
