It's back...Elite Edition Bat 2017
« on: January 02, 2017, 12:20:53 PM »

Right then no time to waste as 2017 is going to be a monster year as it marks 10 years since I started up Ayrtek as my second business after leaving University in 2004.

To mark the decade of existence im relaunching our Elite Edition bat and Decade Edition Softs range to celebrate. As keen supporters and customers of the company over the last 10 years I thought it only fair to give CBF members an advanced look at the bat and its brand new aesthetics.



They will feature chrome, embossed and matte sections that aren't able to be fully displayed in digital format but rest assured I'm delighted with the design and think they will look every bit as good as anticipated.

Hopefully at least someone agrees and buys one 😂

@jblowe I've made the commercial decision to use someone else this time but rest assured they are every bit as good IMO as the original supplier and wont disappoint either in the quality of bat provided.

Stickers look great! What was the though behind the green in the pads and bat? Is that a throwback to the elder versions?

We used Red way back in the CCC days to tie in with their colour scheme from 2004-2007, when our contract with them ended I started up Ayrtek and continued the red scheme but wanted something vibrant and new in 2010 when we introduced our bats range, the Green seemed like something no one else really hit upon at the time and it grab the attention against the white contrasted with it.

Other colours are obviously viable but as you say its a throw back to our most popular range.

Theres some elements on the stickers that arent clear from the pic as some carbon fibre weave has been included for good measure to tie in with the Raw helmets etc.

That is a shame, but as a top brand in the industry I am sure your have found someone just as good.

when will you be publishing a price list, and when will you hope to start taking orders?

I'd like to think so as I wouldn't want the brand name on anything that wasn't at the top of its game willow making wise.

Stickers were only finalised yesterday and hopefully underway as of tomorrow, hoping for a 4-6 week lead time on them in order to have bats available by the end of Feb for purchase.

I'll publish a full price list shortly as wife is glaring at me seeing as I'm not meant to be back to "work" until tomorrow 😳

Like the look but my personal preference would be to remove the stickers from the bottom half of the back of the bat...
Colours look lovely though, used Liam SCCC's Ayrtek bat back in 2012 and it was a lovely bat, picked up well and i hit a pretty big six with it!

I could well be tempted if the price list is favourable please along with some of your new gloves. Is there a bundle deal or offering Tom

Always possible to leave the side sections off of specified when ordering 👍

I'll be using the same profile with marginal tweaks as we did back then too as it was hugely popular with clubbies and England players alike 😀

Yes I'm happy to look at bundle deals once everything has been finalised price wise.
