Found this website today

the bats look good so do the soft goods.
seems like a good idea to me

Saw them advertise in AOC - I remember Ian Willis being something to do with them... he always used to plug them a lot at least!

They are RNS Larsons imports with fancy stickers, do it yourself and save money, you can get the blanks in London direct.

They should do since they add 100 to the cost of the bat.

I wish my stickers added 100 onto the price of my bats!

is the quality of the bats very poor or something?

I think the point they are making is that you are basically paying 100 for their stickers, as they are simply importing and putting their stickers on.  This doesn't mean you will get a terrible bat, but that they are overpriced.

I find RNS Larsons to be as good an import as you'll find, I've sold some stunners but these are just standard grade 1 and 2 bats with stickers added. No value compared to a English made custom such as CE.

Yeah your right Leo.  Ian Wills used to sell them.  I have one lieing around somewhere, its blank but I was told its willowstix, and has the case so i expect so, seemed quite nice.

RNS makes very good bats. Their Eurostar bats are amazing.

It is amazing to see how the quality perception of a bat changes with the stickers put on it and we happily pay more for the fancy lables.

Very under rated, other companies are ahead in peoples minds due to their ability to produce softs for the big brands.

London, its a big city in the south of England, but thats not important right now.

You can buy RNS Larsons blank from Ali at AJ Sports.
