A mate of mine found a SS Turbo (I think) LE in a pawn shop here a few months ago. Bat looks in used but prestine condition, I can't believe he found it here!!, Will try and get some pics on the weekend when I see him. He has no clue what it is and like an idiot started taking some stickers off it...I almost cut his hands off!!

Pics to follow...

THat is phenomenal knowledge. You spend far too much time on here ;)

When I Googled for "Gray Nicolls Runmaker" that was the 7th entry...

I was wondering whether it was an Aussie Powerspot. SOmeone asked about the Runmaker in 2009:

It's too late to be a forerunner to the powerspot; it looks as though it's from the late 80s early 90s and the runmaker was  very low in the model range at GN

Here's another that I picked up recently. It's the Hunts County Modulus, complete with Honeycomb. This is an odd sized bat, have the label "M" on the top of the handle.

The bat is the same width as a standard blade but has an SSH handle and a slightly shorted blade. Anyone know much about Hunts sizing from that time?

The pictures...







Someone was telling me what they think of it...

There was a bat with honeycomb in the shop at taunton once, think it was boundary sports, I fell in love with it.

I tried to buy one of these roughly 15 years ago and the supplier told me that they'd had loads of returns and that they were a pain in the butt, then gave me a lovely 5 crown Insignia for the same price, which proved to be a brilliant bat!

Do you think someone may have taken the extra wood off themselves?

No. It's all in proportion. I thought it might have been a Harrow like size.

It's a Medium sized bat - fore-runner to Academy size or SSH.

Are you sure?  I thought HCB used M as mini handle, ie their version of SSH

The blade is definitely shorter though. I'll measure it for you tomorrow.

Here is my trusty bubble, served me well through the 90s, over 3500 village runs in this bat before she retired...

I found this at the bottom of our kit bag.  I love the profile and shoulders.

Great find Wooly. That does not belong in the bottom of a kit bag!
