Trust me, if it increases his average by even 10 runs then I'll pay for it myself. It's not going to make a blind bit of difference.
You are missing the point , why not use willow coated rubber bats?

Carbon kookaburras are fine at club level aren't they?? I thought you could use them until they were dead.

As for a lam, who plays in a league where the umpires would:
A) be able to spot one?
B) do anything about it?

a - no, as most league umpires can't even see the other end of the pitch
b - no, as they prefer to bleat on about the over rate or the quality of the tea

Some bats are allowed to be used until they die - carbon kooks, cheating handle newbery's / puma etc. Lammy's have been banned for a lot longer and you certainly can't use one in a competitive match, a friendly possibly and netting yes.

If you cant use them, why do bat makers produce them? I know custom request but what bat make would want to be a part of something like this

One that has his business head on - if there's a demand for them then why not make them? Its up to the customer whether he uses the bat just in nets or in an actual game. For Chase its the difference of them making it or someone else inevitably doing it - they're throwing away free money by saying no at the end of the day

One who is interested in seeing what can be done with the materials may be? There is nothing saying a batmaker can't make one, just that a player can't use it.

The bat makers don't have to abide by anything, there isn't a law against making the bats, just using them. If the bat maker fancies testing out a new idea/design they why not!

Don't see the issue with them personally, at the end of the day it won't make a blind bit of difference in a game unless you're a top level player timing the poop out of every ball faced anyway - I wouldn't use one but I wouldn't kick off if I saw someone using one (and I have seen many)

I think the rubber wood make a huge difference as opposed to a normal lam.
Is like a company that was around during the 80's and 90's in QLD, AUS that had cork through the bat, they were gems even 30 years after production. Would rubber not have the same effect as cork did?

Hasn't this point already been proven with  the Skyer? Rubber makes the ball go further.

Sometimes I spot them being used in matches and say to the player is that a lam you are using just to let him know that  myself and others are aware of what he is upto. IMO the production of lams should be made illegal.

What and you'll throw whoever makes a Lam in prison?

Think we might need some perspective here......
