India Trip
« on: September 23, 2018, 09:15:01 AM »

Hi all. Myself and Matt are off to India in 2 weeks time to meet suppliers, customers and discuss new innovations. We will be taking plenty of pics and videos and will be posting to our social media sites.

What would you guys like to see when we are out there? Let us know and we'll try and post some bits.

Because this meeting with suppliers couldn't possibly be to discuss softs...

Have a great trip lads, I went out many years ago now on 2005 to see the set ups and oversee the integration of the air liners into the gloves. Really good to see the skill involved to make the Softs, bats etc and would love to go back now and see how its all evolved over the last 14 years.

Would love to see some videos of how they make softs. As well  as the Indian bat makers churning out the quality they produce now as well be great to see compared to the U.K. makers

Its our second trip out there, fantastic place.

We are over seeing production of softs, bags, grips, balls and a few potential new items. Sure we'll see plenty of bats but rest assured, our bats will still all be made by Matt in Kent!

I would like to know why it is virtually impossible to buy black spiral grips.
If you do visit some batmakers I would like to know their thoughts on the counterfeit market. Particularly what they are/can do about it and how it effects their brands/business.

I had no real reason to doubt this. But thanks for demonstrating how easy it is to clarify such things.

Hi all. Back safe and sound. Was a very successful trip to an amazing place.
Being fully involved in the design and production process of our softs and bags was a great experience. Tweaking designs, textures and features on the fly really helps getting the best results. We have now got some great samples for testing.

Very excited for the 2019 kit launch! Watch this space.  ;)
