Here's one I bought off ebay not so long back when I'd had a couple too many beers.
It's a genuine 90's V600 Ultimate. Brings back memories of Richie Richardson!
From what I can make out, the owner broke the bat and sent it back for a repair. It was repaired by Slazenger with a new blade but then never used so its as new.

See what you reckon!

Very nice Calvin. I also have a V600 Ultimate. It's well used though. The Slaz panther on mine faces the other way though so maybe a season or two older.

I had one, came with a certificate too.
I remember speaking to the late Eric Loxton when it went back for an end of season refurb.

Here are some vintage bats that have been hung up by retiring club chairmen over the years, except the middle bat which belonged to the man that holds the club record score of 182 not out, the Dynadrive on the left i reckon could still be used and is a lovely looking bat.

Look at the initials below the Zenith logo

After John Newbery's first bat company went bust (the Merlin in the above pic was from his first company) one of his staff, the marketing manager IIRC, founded Zenith bats, with John Newbery as an employee. Zenith didn't last long and John Newbery died in 1989. I think one or two pros used Zeniths including John Carr of Middlesex and Chris Cowdrey possibly when he was briefly England Captain
