Can't be doing with trailing through 19 pages of this thread (and searching bat and ball in the search bar certainly wont narrow it down) so if if it's not been mentioned before check out the Bat and Ball inn in Cuddestone in Oxfordshire, went there for lunch once....

Vintage bats everywhere! If you hit images on Google you'll see. It's pretty awesome...

I've seen that one, they just want a little too much for it. I have a bit of a love hate relationship with SS's though.

I found the "Sub-Standard" stamp on it interestingly self-deprecating, lol, you'd never see that kind of honesty nowadays - especially from the sub-continent where every piece of rubbish is "Royal", "Super", "Elite" or whatever, no matter what it is, lolol.

I did quite like that, poor marketing back in the day

Could be argued as being honest marketing instead of poor

Far too many companies these days claiming things that just aren't true - really does annoy me as you can tell haha

Yeah it annoys me as well. There is far too  much sub standard 'grade 1 willow' around.

Even grade 2 is substandard. I have seen some that are extremely concaved, with 5 grains passing as grade 2

Personally I think it's the willow getting called grade 2 that is more of an issue - for example:

Time for another in this occasional series,  and while it's not properly "vintage", it's certainly a modern classic.

I bring you a four star powerbow,  which,  going by the stickers is a gen 1. It's in great condition and still has a remarkable middle. Best of all is, of course,  the marvellous shape. A true eBay bargain. Enjoy!

The Powerbow I have seen from that period was more bottom heavy and had a different profile. Aus model must be different. I love the profile on your model. Early 90s?

I think the powerbow appeared somewhere between 2002 &  2004. It was the successor to the longbow...
