Branding
« on: February 17, 2018, 07:24:48 PM »

Now Ive used a few L&Ws in my time, and they have all been excellent. They take time to play in but rocket once they have been.

But what are your guys thoughts on the current stickers, in particular the fact that many of the ones that are sold at the moment have the name on the edge? I know a bat is a bat regardless of stickers, but they play a part in the buying process nonetheless.

Personally, I love the stickers on the face and back, but those names on the edge are yuck.

Interested to hear what other people think.

Pretty much spot on. Really like the green shield stickers, think the red ones are a bit dull. Can see why people would like the new retro ones but theyre not for me.

The green shield stickers are awesome, but I personally hate the boring red ones

The model name down the edge is absolutely gash

Totally agree, looks cheap, particularly on L&W bats.

The worst edge ones are the Indian market ones so I don't think understated was ever in the design brief

The grading names bother me more than stickers but hey ho

I'll second this. The grading names are hellishly confusing. I'm thinking that they're actually designed to fool people into thinking they're getting a top of the range grade when they aren't. Its marketing BS and something Laver should be above quite honestly.
