8 pages back on this topic! I haven't got round to selling many of those bats as I'm not sure how to price them. Anybody got any ideas on guide prices? All the money goes to my club.


I'd list them on eBay and let the market decide. Typically I've seen bats in the same condition as yours go between 80-120+ AUD depending if it appeals to a couple of buyers.  Start them on $40 reserve and see what happens!

Good luck

Cleaned up my Symonds Power Deluxe 5 Star.  Struggling to get rid of all cherries


I've found cutting compound with my buffer very good on polycoated surfaces as for your Tusker, alternatively white spirits will take most marks off and I have found it not to affect (or remove) decals like say acetone or lacquer thinners (extreme care required with these!). Have also used methylated spirits and mineral turpentine but found white spirits the best. Obviously any solvent or cleaner should be tested in a discreet spot before using all over :)

Love those old Symonds bats.

Scored this deal a couple of days ago  :)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-Duncan-Fearnley-Cricket-Bats-/171815742836?autorefresh=true&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2047675.l2557&nma=true&si=LK4zeMsVeCQjqz1yOfj5uMQlsZc%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

Shame to watch the Black Caps drop their bundle in the one-dayer this morning though !


If the bats are 4 inches wide as discribe they could  be Harrow.

If you look at the pics of the handle ends, yes one of the Attacks is a harrow, and it is obviously slightly smaller than the other 3 in the other main pics.

Mortimer - yeah when I read up on the Run Reaper after my recent purchase above, I discovered that (to my surprise) early Run Reapers had holes in them, but obviously DF dropped that particular innovation from their later versions. I am not sure of the age of the two "holeless" Reapers that I have bought, but would guess early to mid 90's.

Picked this one up recently. Always wanted an Elite after growing up watching Marsh and Boon using Elite bats.

The ultimate Robin Smith bat. Remember him cutting windies and Aussies bowlers for huge fours with this.

I was watching some 92 World Cup replays the other day. Robin played some of the most cracking cover drives against India I've ever seen.
