What happened to Willostix! Craved their gear when I was a kid, had a great social media and forum presence too. In fact, I managed to find an old junior Willostix Salamander last year as a gift to my partner here in Michigan- she loves it!

Im meeting Andy from willostix this Saturday, I think they are still going (technically) but will ask and update here

I know they're still around because Jimmy Anderson uses them, but here is Australia Slazenger has disappeared off the face of the earth. Once Clarke and then Steve Smith stopped using them the market has well and truly diminished for them.

Good bats - I think most were TK made - but the last I heard of the proprietor was that he was pawning his parents jewellery to keep the wolves from the door

Someone posted a picture of him on here on here last year I think    receiving an award for inventing a shoe for cows feet.

Along with Andy from Saf miss there entertainment

I wonder if Japanese customs see much cricket-related business these days?

Popped into Cricket-Hockey near Salisbury yesterday. They're still stocking their FUNKY brand but have gone big on all the major players. They try and stock everything available from the suppliers they use and they have a huge bat stock. (It might be the largest in the country.) I like the fact that you can see full stock availability from the website. Didn't realise how big their hockey, snooker and darts stocks are too. All in all a good place to while away some time.

Cricket-Hockey still run the shop at the Rose Bowl but I don't think there's any Funky branded Hampshire kit around anymore. They don't have any sponsored players left either. You still see a few bats around the Hampshire/Southern leagues. There's a few good specials on the web site.

I enjoyed my browse there too. The way the guy was explaining bats to a young un and his mum  in a very honest and non BS way was very refreshing
