Blue Room bats seen at Northants CCC last night.
« on: August 02, 2017, 09:02:04 AM »

Stickers say "designed by Robert Pack in the UK".

Surely not doing the Millichamp and Hall?

Certainly not been to the pack cave a fair few times, spend hours there tinkering the ones I've had made by him, he's one of the few left in the uk who make everything from scratch

Bit of a strange thing to put on the stickers then?  Does he have a trainee/apprentice batmaker working for him perhaps??

Even then it doesn't say 'made in the uk'.

I think it's the actual stickers that are designed by Rob and made in the UK. Nothing to do with his bats which are still handmade by him.

Perhaps the forum sponsor will clarify for us?

I have 4 blueroom/RPC bats that have been made to my specific requirements I make the 450 mile round trip every season to pop in and have a chat with the bloke and pick my bats up and see if there's anything that takes my fancy in the showroom, I certainly wouldn't waste my time if I knew they were just imported and stickers applied to them, if I wanted that I'd go straight to the bat supplier myself, if you honestly believe that they aren't handmade in the the little bat shed and out house to the back of the store ,then why dont you go down yourself and take a look maybe that will clear things up for you

I don't actually think he is implying that.....but whatever the reason is, it does seem an odd thing to put on your stickers?!

This type of argument could equally be used to defend the much maligned Millichamp and Hall?

No he does not have an apprentice bat maker. He has a lad who works in the shop for him but rob makes all the bats himself, from scratch.
Rob has been shipping a few handmade bats over to oz/nz so perhaps this is why he started to put this on the bats.
I went over only a few weeks ago mind and had one made right infront of me, there was also 2 other lads who did the same.

You can also see a workshop and bats being made at Taunton.

@Bats_Entertainment do us all a favour, phone Rob and ask him yourself and then kindly share your findings with the rest of us.

Why? I don't need to prove anything to anyone. I was merely reporting what was written on the stickers.

No, it's seems you want clarification on the matter, so give him a bell and find out.
