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.
Agreed, I don't buy the bat maker is innocent and just making money, in that case so is a doctor subscribing steroids to an athlete (taken to the nth degree). They know the product they are making is not a suitable product and the user is seeking an unfair advantage.

Three pages in and there's been about 3 points made.

To summarise for those who don't want to read it all the opinions are:

1) Lams are illegal
2) nobody seems to know/care if Lams are used in games (but if someone does well against you using one it's down to the bat!)
3) people think you should go to prison for making Lams!

I used my lam in a game(was only bat I was willing to get wet that day).

I scored 8 as I missed a straight one.

Should I be expecting the police to call?

I don't think anyone stated the punishment only that it's not legal, but while we're at it.
3) Hanging ;)

No but you should be safe in the knowledge that the eight you scored would have been a duck if you were not using a lam.  ???

I might as well make an 8 inch wide(or maybe wider) bat with lighter wood (or may be use light rubber, cos it's ok) so I can use it when we need to block out for a draw.

Can't put in prison or shouldn't worry about police calls cos they are okay.

No that's different. A wider bat would make it easier to hit the ball, not necessarily to score runs. I honestly wouldn't give a monkey's if someone came out to bat against me with a regulation sized laminated bat, he's still got to get the bat on the ball. If he came out holding an unhinged door and placed it in front of the stumps then I would have something to say about it.

Yeah he still has to get the ball on the bat but once he does that 2 runs become 4 runs , a single becomes two , I don't get why it's so hard to comprehend?

It's not like everyone who plays club cricket are all walking wickets who can't get bat on the ball.

Mate just give up, there's no way you'd be able to regulate the selling of Lams, and there's no reason selling them should be illegal anyway.
Slazenger make their huge Lams out if 2 clefts and market them as a training aid, should Mike Ashley be bunged in the tower for this??

I think you are seriously overestimating the capabilities of a laminated bat. They aren't like one of those skyer bats, the ball might travel slightly quicker off it but I doubt that every shot the batsman hits will turn twos into fours.
