It does not seem that the forum sponsor is active anymore / may be away?
Anyway, in my opinion the stickers may have been applied as they are being stocked on the shelf in some places, which would make sense for the stickers to be there.

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

Did anyone ring Rob at Millichamp and Hall for clarification?

I think real life takes over sometimes, Bats, so if you're happy to take that one on and feedback I'm sure everyone would be interested to hear.

I am satisfied with my own conclusions, thank-you very much.

You gotta love this forum sometimes. Someone throws out some potentially damaging speculation about an honest and hard working bat maker, then walks away as if it's nothing to do with them. No wonder Rob doesn't post on here anymore.

It's liking farting in a small waiting room and then wandering out without a care in the world.

Rob is one of the most genuine and hard working blokes I've met, can't do enough for you and then you get some idiot that tries to tarnish someone's reputation like that, if you weren't bothered why start a topic about it anyways !

What do want me to do? Apologise?

Why on earth wouldn't he just put 'Handmade in the UK' on his bats? I thought other people would be interested given all the fuss there's been about Newbery and Millichamp and Hall.

But this really isn't that important to me. I've got a cricket bat and I'm happy with it.

All I've done is reported an observation, and stated what that kind of wording usually means.

At best, there is a presentation issue.

Rob/ whoever normally speaks for him is free to give an explanation.

I sympathise with you. To me your query certainly seemed genuine and it was a good observation. If people didn't question such things we would all believe Slazenger bats were all made in England too.
It can be difficult to judge tone on a forum and sometimes people reach for their pitchforks a little quickly.

If it had been phrased along the lines of 'rob pack should make sure he includes a made in England sticker as well as designed in England one', then people would have praised your observational skills and business acumen.

Did we tiptoe around Newbery and M&H like that?

I suspect people are a little keen to show off how well they know their  ("good, honest, hardworking") personal batmaker?
