How Many Bat Makes Have You Owned?
« on: February 10, 2015, 01:26:35 PM »

I was in the loft the other day scrabbling around trying find something or other for the wife when I spotted some of my old bats and it got me reminiscing about just how many bats from different brands I have owned in 18 seasons of playing.  I thought it would be a good chance to compare just how many brands some people have owned, are you a one brand man or do you like to see what else is out there? 

To qualify for the 'collection' it is a bat that you must have owned (if not used) that was not just stickered up i.e. a GM with Puma stickers is counted as a GM.

My list in no particular order is .... 
Stuart Surridge
GM
GN
Hunts
Bulldog x 2
Newbury
DF x 2
CA
Talisman
Mongoose
Canterbury
Warsop
McLean
Fusion
BS
Double B (very old bat that I got free with another bat from eBay and sold back on there)
CJI
STAC

I suspect my list of previous brands will be very small compared to some on here.

Go on then share your list...

Off the top of my head:

Woodworm (5)
Bellingham & Smith (1)
Wasp (1)
Chase (2)
CA (1)
Slazenger (1)
Woodstock (1)
Kookaburra (2)
Mongoose (1)
Gray Nicholls (2)
Hammer (1)
Gunn and Moore (12)
Ace of Elland Road (1)
Sareen Sports (7)
Ihsan (1)

I make that 15 makes :-[

Also things that have passed through my hands that I'd originally forgotten!

Newbery (2)
Millichamp and Hall (1)
Puma (2)
A blank ebay jobby (grade 1 wood filler) (1)

Edit - added since the last update (in February!)
MSR (1)
Warsop (2)
Piri Piri (1)

I make that a guesstimate of 49 bats from 22 different companies that I've owned (with a lot more that I've briefly had in my possession).
Will I bring up my half century of bats in the 2015 season?

I suspect that as this topic rumbles on people will remember the bats initially forgotten in their original list like I have just done seeing @arsenal123 list, so I better amend my one.

DF (2)
GM (6)
County (4)
Bradbury (1)
Puma (1)
Pak bats from unknown source(!) (2)
Blank Bats (2)
SAF (2)
Kookaburra (1)
KG (1)
Bulldog Indian blank (1)
DS (1)
Talisman (1)
MSR (2)
RS (1)

I think I need to change the box I ticked...! (I ticked 5-9 - but it is clear that is wrong...)

The best bat I had I think was a County bat in a Tendulkar shape or one of the Pak bats, which had a very similar shape. I really ought to dig it out of the loft and have a copy made...

Note that since joining the forum the number has gone from 7 to 15...

Good to know I'm in the majority group on the voting thus far!  Although I am developing a problem, I feel like I need a new bat every year so by the time I give up the game I'll likely be on 40+ bats!
