Fakhar Zaman's bat .. CA or B3?
« on: June 18, 2017, 10:23:26 PM »

Is this true? B3 claiming that Fakhar Zaman's bat is made by B3. Can B3 openly claim that the bat is made by them when the stickers are from CA. Here is the story from B3's facebook page

Open secret or not, it's rare to see other bat makers claiming ownership of bats stickered up by another company.

Aren't all/most pro bats stickered up? Why the public declaration? Why no declarations about Finch, Root's bats?

B3 are new to the industry so maybe cut them some slack.

True, B3 are acting cheeky but this could cause issues for the young player with his sponsor/contract. Especially when the sponsor are a big bat maker themselves

Technically b3 didn't say his bat was b3 .... they just said that they can make one exactly the same . We all know thats because they have the cnc profile number from when they made his bat , but at a pinch b3 could just say they mean that they can make an exact replica of a ca 15000 . Simple . Cheeky , borderline perhaps , but simple nonetheless.

" When you see one of your bats smash it around in #iccchampionstrophy2017 and it doesn't have your stickers on it's a bit of a fakhar 🤐"

Cute, isn't it. :D

I rate B3 among the best bat makers and i got 2 B3 bats myself. It would be intersting if B3 can share the profile details of the bat like they did for Shan Masood profile. @The Doctor

B3 are new to the industry so maybe cut them some slack.

It is all down to the player, for example - Shoib Malik did not mind people knowing that we made his bats, where as another Pakistan player at the same time didn't want people to know - so we didn't say anything.

Finch openly posted on instagram/twitter, other players like him have said again that we must keep it a secret.

We would love to tell you all who we make for but we have an agreement with either other brands or individual players.

As for new to the business - B3 has been around for 5 years, and prior to that a further 28 years in the industry in a global cricket brand.

Yes, that posters comment did make me chuckle a lot, so much 'knowledge' on this forum at times :)

I would have said "Surely no-one in the world still thinks that Pros only use the brand on their bats" Then I saw some of the Pakistani comments on B3's post on FB and I just rolled my eyes.
Obviously a hell of a bat because he didn't middle too many in that innings and it still flew.
