Yeah bit difficult to track down stuff that you want to try then by the sound of is Dan....Pete you are correct he has been wearing it since June this year and wears it for batting and keeping in.

Other players that wear them are....

   Michael Vandort- Sri Lanka
   Peter McGlashen-New Zealand
   Rachel Priest-New Zealand Womens Team
   Jon Lewis-Gloucestershire C.C
   Steve Kirby-Gloucestershire C.C
   Tim Murtagh-Middlesex C.C.
   Paul Nixon-Leicestershire C.C

Hoping to expand this again to get it a bit wider spread but as it was only our 1st season getting one on the wrolds number 1 test batsman is a good start in my book

Yeah a little difficult thank god for the internet! :)

Have you approached other players? I suppose they all have existing contracts and will be easier once they have run out?

As a small start-up company we haven't gone after any players as such as we made the decision not to actively pursue them outright as it meant a outlay on sponsorship before gaining anything back in terms of sales and we all know what happened with Woodworm!!

Players who have them have got wind of the technology and safety benefits and asked for one to be supplied to them so that they can wear them in the worst case scenario that they "wear one". Maybe were naive but the product and its benefits in terms of being safer and having a customisable fit system within it helps to sell itself. Obviously with a marketing push required to spread the word and get the brand out there to people who might not be aware of it.

Yeah sensible approach! Saying that though I would say your helmets will become a main stay alongside albion and masuri, but i definately see the benefits of your approach.

Kind of like let them come to you? I think with anything that is worth having or anything that is a beneficial progression on whats already available on the market it will, like you say, sell itself but not only that will have longevity.
