12. Newbery.

Are the handles and finishing standardised, or can the trained eye differentiate between Newberys made in different parts of the country and in India?

Has anyone seen enough of their bats lately to know? They don't get talked about much!
A relatively untrained eye is enough to spot the difference.

So you can tell an Aldred Newbery from a 'made in Sussex' Newbery?

Haven't seen a TK one right next to a PA one but I'd imagine so, the Indian made ones for sure.

Yes, I figured the Indian ones would look and feel different. They are the cheaper models after all.

Might it be as simple as rolling back the grip and looking at the twine on the UK ones?

I'd imagine so, nothing about how the 'new' owners have gone about their business suggests they'd go to any trouble to do otherwise.

Also g.n u.k top bats made in u.k (Northbridge? ), and g.n aus top bats made in melbourne oz. G.m have some bats ( not sure if lower end or just for indian market) made by dsc factory in india ( or maybe its easier to think of it as dsc are made by gm india ?).  Mrf made by loads of companies like s.s , rns , zx , bdm etc. Ceat mostly made by zx plus others  (similar to mrf).
I thought puma were still made by s.s but buzz may be right and maybe they are coming out of sondhi these days .
Maybe someone else can go into which u.k brands are made by tk and which by others etc.

I think that Paul only makes the pro bats for Newbery, rather than the ones sold to the public.

Isn't Spartans top  bat maker he guy who made for Kook and based  in Aus.
He was on the telly during the winter Ashes discussing bat making.

I also don't think it's any great secret that Chris Gayle's bats are made by David Wolstenholme in Norfolk.

If TK is still involved, why would they not want bats made by him?

I remember reading in some blog or maybe in one of IJC videos that even the GN legend is manufactured in india. Same with the top GN bats like halestorm

I never knew. And I've definitely heard others make claim.

Bats seem to have gone to crazy prices in the few years i've been away.

Wonder if its possible to get the original shape MH Distinction ......... i love that bat. The newer ones had the middle too high up.
