I think I am not a great big fan of MRF and Spartans either.

Sometimes I wonder how Slaz is still in the bat market? There bats are hardly popular anymore.

There are problems with a list like the above due to the outsourced nature if the cricket industry.

If you don't like slazenger, but like New Balance or Protos then it feels a bit odd to me (not saying that is the case here, but making a generalisation)
I don't know where Nike, Reebok and Puma bats are made, but they may also be made in a similar place, or made by SF.
You also don't like Spartan or Adidas, but Ton isn't on your list.

It comes down to the perception of stickers. Which is sad.

I think the OP's idea for this thread was about irrational stereotyping of brand names so there doesn't necessarily have to be a good reason for these brands to be on various people's list

Sometimes there's good reasons even with brands made by the same manufacturer to be fair - I don't like SS bats because of the thin round handles, whereas I do like Pumas (also made by SS iirc) because they put nice oval handles in!

Hunts, used to play at a club where everyone used them from Martin berrill (sp) in Gloucester - the willowstix factory?- it was the wicket that did it as it never got above shin high!! Saw so many old reflex bats break (the ones with those weird toes) so would never pay money for a hunts - even the name reflex brings me out in a cold sweat!!
