Title: New stickers
Post by: edge on November 20, 2018, 10:13:36 PM
Just been posted on the H4L facebook, bit of a launch on Friday by the sounds of things? New stickers look tidy, old ones were starting to look a bit dated but these are a real improvement I think!

Thought bat makers had to move edge stamps higher up? Hence why gray nics one has moved and Kippax got rid of theirs?

Really like the look of the new stickers. I've bought a few hell 4 leather bats and I've been a bit disappointed with them but I also know lots of people that love the brand.

Absolutely love the new stickers especially the mysterious new white ones - I wonder what these will be - maybe the new custom stickers? Or a new shape?

Agree with the comments above, personally im a fan of the understated. These white ones do just nicely!

Brand seems to have gone a bit out of fashion on here?

Thereís only 1 fashionable brand at the moment it would seem.
However, Iíd rather have a hellfire than one of the more popular bats on here. Loving those stickers. Would like a better view of the nv stickers.
Have had 4 h4lís and theyíve all been fantastic.

There was a time, not too long ago, when GM wasn't even considered the best brand in Nottingham.  :o

Anyone else think they look very similar to arytek stickers?

Everyone who wanted to try one has, hence posts dry up? Also you'll note forum trends tend to correlate quite strongly to posts by a brand or their representative.

The new branding looks fabulous. The bats have always be great.

Love the new look! My custom could do with a refurb, might have to send it down

Probably the best branding I've seen so far this year. Really nice colours, great stickers. Good stuff!

I haven't.  :o

There must be a certain irony in the current Custom Bats Forum flavour of the month being a brand that won't even make you a custom bat?

"Configure your own bat online, from Willow Grade, Profile and choose from our 10 new colour ranges! Watch this space!!!"

Also sounds interesting...

H4l bats are awesome.

But. I did find them hard to deal with on the two occasions I bought direct. Slow replies, errors in communication, lack of understanding between what I wanted and what they thought I wanted.


Buying through vitas and every bat I got was spot on from them(still have 3, and several at my club I sourced through vitas still going strong).

Just a shame like many things, the end of vitas meant the end of quite A few things.
My wallet is Lucy betternof though.

Couldnít agree more. Have had issues placing orders previously. Bat arrived completely different weight to expected. Year or so later I went to place another custom order and never heard back a few times so gave up. Shame as some of their bats Iíve seen are great.

Mines called Jeff, Lucy Betternof sounds better to be honest.

Totally agree with the comments about how hard H4L are to deal with directly and agree that Vitas were brilliant for getting exactly what you wanted very sad that they aren't around anymore. Just wanted to give a bit of push towards @Six Sixes Cricket though for any ex Vitas customers they have the same excellent level of customer service that made Vita so good and I have a number of cracking bats off them including a Hellfire that was perfectly to spec even down to the type and colour of grip.

I suspect due to the volume of enquiries Matt is in need of a secretary by now for a rapidly expanding brand!

Speaking from experience its practically a full-time job answering enquiries over the mediums of email/WhatsApp/facebook/twitter/Instagram and the good old-fashioned phone call now without factoring in the job of actually making bats that Matt does, it's a bit easier to answer the phone or an email when assembling helmets vs being on the end of a band saw/belt sander/drawknife I imagine.

Hi all. Thanks for the nice feedback on the new range. Full launch this weekend.

Sorry to anyone that has had a bad experience on ordering. We are constantly working on our order process and communication. Online orders are processed swiftly and to the spec provided, but custom requests and forum orders require a lot more communication. As Tom says, Matt is busy in production and due to our location has limited access to email during the day. Again this is something we are working on.

Always open to constructive criticism and suggestions for a smoother customer journey. We are looking to grow the team in the new year and will be more active on social media, the forum and email!!!!

Stickers look great as Iíve got them on my 2 I just had refurbed

Had 5 or 6 bats now from Matt and can take time but quality always does and well worth the wait plus fantastic after care. Took 2 lads down who both got bats and a lad at indoor tonight going to buy one as well

Love the new branding, canít wait to see it

My own dealings with Matt and h4l,,,Iíd say heís one of the hardest working,honest, and genuine blokes in this industry!
Itís not easy answering requests when you have trees to fell,cut,shape and finish, into arguably the best bats money can buy.

Do you sell the stickers ? I live in Denmark, so it will be very expensive to sent the bat over for a refurb, so have to do it my self and add the new stickers.

I love what h4l have done. Made every bat a custom and pick you stickers. If I didnít have an outrageous amount of bats I need to thin I would be jumping on it. £200 until Monday for a custom made h4l. Thatís pretty good value @H4Ladam.

Iím interested too - tho would the ď lowĒ be the old hattroi shape - mid the nv/hellfire shape and the high ? Obviously the twenty20 is the warbird and the 50/50 is the same

I love the white and gold stickers

Lovely selection of stickers, I'm glad they kept a version of the fifity50 stickers are they were superb, but look even better now with the ''facelift''.
