I wish Symonds come back in existence somehow. KP would be happy to be their ambassador ;)

This.  I would love another Tusker in a funky shape!

Loved my Stac gear and my first bat was still just about the best bat I've ever owned. Don't like the current stickers though. Older ones were much classier!

Im sure I had a Baronet Cricket bat at school in the midlands, as did a few of us (25ish years ago)

Do they still exist?

Bernie Facer used to make those from his shed in Buckden, about 10minute drive from me. My first bat was a custom made Baronet.

He stopped making them and went to Work for Hawk. My guess is hes probably retired by now

Your right he worked  with the  Hawk boys when they started but has been retired a while now.

I still have 2 of these bats - they are such good quality! But as they were made by TK from the pick of BC's own willow plantation, they were always going to be decent!!

True...I remember when I had first joined this forum a few years ago, Black Cat were supposed to the gold standard of cricket bats. Never saw any in the past 2-3 years on the forum.

Shark cricket

Bloke at our club had a Great White, went like a train, although he didn't get it off the square that often!
