Anyone remember the model of Hunts County that had a honeycomb construction in it which was partly exposed at the back??


Modulus wasn't it?

Wasn't there a Woodworm that Freddie and KP used that had chunks out of the shoulders.

Never used one but I used to love that bat...seemed like a smart idea too. Anyone know why they stopped making it? Or why no other bat maker tried the same? Did that design become illegal?

Still going, albeit on a much smaller scale presumably, after they struggled money wise.

By the looks of it they still take the sides out the bats https://www.woodworm.tv/woodworm-cricket-ib-select-grade-1-cricket-bat1.aspx

Puma made one with holes down the back (not literal but round scoops)

That would be the stealth, nice bats actually

Aren't the SportsHQ (who own woodworm) also associated with CA or someone similar? I assume they come from the same factory as their partner brand.

The new Woodworms are certainly finished like a CA - you can slice cheese with the edges!

The old V12 was a little odd, especially back then. Here's a photo, not the best but you can get the idea:

I also owned a GN 'Megapower' at one point. Such a (No Swearing Please) name, I had to cut the stickers off. The bat went like a train though.

Wonder if the Aldred Spectre falls in this category too?
