Dan is not involved with kook anymore as far as Im aware. He does however run his own brand out there.

Kook do indeed have a bat maker who posts on Instagram quite a bit. A very good bat maker who makes a lot for the Pros

Cool. I seem to remember his bats getting a bit of TV exposure courtesy of a Northants debutant whose name I can't remember.

He played for ampthill. Alex wakeley played there when he was younger,  theres also a few other northants players who have played locally so certainly an opportunity with the right contact

Alex Wakely seems to have had nearly as many bat sponsors as he's had first-class hundreds.

Just to add to this, does anyone still make their own handles, I know Crown did when in Dewsbury, Warssop? Hawk?

Charlie French was making his own handles, but last time we spoke he told me it was becoming increasingly difficult to import raw cane. Not sure what the reason for this was. Very time consuming to make handles, and no particular margin to be gained by doing it.

Hmm, just get the vibe he's turning into an angry man
I like his bats, and I like Paul, but he does like to have a whinge

Julian Millichamp shaped pre made bats,,,would anyone argue or have a go at him for that?'

I agree with a lot of what he says. And he doesn't come across as angry at all.

If you read the comments below, though, he doesn't seem very aware of Tim Keeley's substantial role in the whole pre-made/ white label game. Indeed, he is full of praise for Keeley.
