This was the slightly lower grade of Beast, they had a Carbon fibre at the top end. Fibreglass in the middle end which was silver.

Would make sense as fibreglass is a cheaper material to produce than Carbon fibre.

looks like he tried to sell it for 70 before and got no bids but put it back up for 70

is it worth that?

Not sure where this model lay in the range

The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.

The sticker on this one quotes Graphite + Fibreglass. The Fibreglass one I have is blue, and the graphite one is black.

Thanks Tim, @roco think this was just below the top end. Probably G2 English Willow.

I remember that 'The Beast' was the top model.
Pure Beast
Angry Beast
Lowest was the 'Little Beast' (Kashmir).

Think I might have missed one though

I remember top of the range bats being no more than 100 !  That was 25+ years ago though.

Had the pleasure to receive these 3 beauties through the post a couple of days ago.  Now these define the definition of 'Vintage Bats' from the era I was brought up playing cricket.  All 3 are totally unused, spotless with the original grips on.  What a find!  :D
