2011 - 2018 GN pro performance box
2012 - 2019* kook kahuna bat (was a spare but never actually used until 2017. its now a net bat only)
2013-2019* Stratton foxes still going strong.. I have had new straps though to keep them snug. They are way to big for me now due to weight loss but I cba to buy new ones yet.
2016-2019* match bat from 2016 is still in use with a bowler at the club
2017-2019* match bat will go into its 3rd season as I have not been able to find a bat of similar size, weight but most important.. sheer size of sweet spot and performance. I do only use it in league games and important cup games. Never in friendlies or 2020s or nets so its on circa 4-5000 balls so is going strong still.


I would love a new bat or two exactly like this but so far, unable to find the genuine size, weight and performance (not jus middle but size of sweet spot up and down the bat). It is illegal though under new regs which is making life hard.. might have to accept the new bat regs

Gloves.. Im chewing through 2 a season in matches and 6 pairs in nets from April to April. One set of pads are lasting a season of games and winter nets but are destroyed by April each season. Helmet is fine but does need a few new swoppa bands for sweat.

Box,,, I think its a sports direct thing, dunno, had it years

Bat, hmm, got a new one on the bench as I write this
Gloves, just picked up a lovely pair of top end Slazenger gloves,(cant use anything else) I usually get a season out of em
Pads,,, dunno, was gonna bat in fielding pads this year,,wore keeping pads last year,,,speeds I face nowadays Id get away with shin pads
Boots, Ill use last seasons sl boosts, which I love

And my flat cap for batting,(yes Im being serious) will last for as long as I keep playing,(might even bowl in it this year)

Bat for me, my H4L Hattori is now approaching season number 6 and still going well. Just been refurbed by Tomtek so hoping it will last the season.

Unless I have a disaster I can't see myself changing any of my "main" kit on the near future.

My last complete overhaul was before the start of last season and I'm more than happy with my current stash.

Current longest serving piece of kit is my helmet (has it since 2017) or my Oakley sunglasses (had them since 2010 I think!)

Box and thigh guard along skull cap.
Box is 9 years old.
Thigh guards are 5-7 years old.
Skull cap is 5 years old.

They are still the initial ones which I had purchased.

Batting pads for me, tend to stick with these until they are falling apart.
For some reason new pads just don't seem as exciting as other gear

Managed to spike my own pads when attempting a quick single last season leading to a nice couple of rips so may have to replace them this year.

Bats - Try and remain faithful but often tempted to go elsewhere. Two nice Neons but I've now got a GN 2018 Pro Performance which I'm tempted to rehandle with a Hunts oval long handle.
Helmet - Albion 98s with rear holes for grille placement instead of slots. Comfy, light, good vision and enough protection.
Thigh pads - Remfrys, protection and comfort. I also have a pair of custom Strettons but I find them too fussy.
Box - Shock Doctor in their compression shorts.
Pads - Puma Iridium 5000 Flextech. Tried the 6000 but still prefer the 5000s. Not sure where to look to replace them when they give up.
Stretton fielding pads - Got hit hard twice on the shin in the same place. Saw these on ebay a few years back and thought I'd give them a try. Now feel naked without them. Tried Newbery fielding pads but prefer these.
Gloves - Seem to prefer pattern (pittards?) leather palms. GM OLE's, GN Velocity Test and Kook kangaroo leather. Feel and grip.
Shoes - Adidas, don't know why. Maybe it's knowing what size is comfortable.

I lost my original box a couple of seasons ago and have been through 3 before finding the one I really like - actually an American Football abdo guard

I'm also still using the Aero P2 strippers I bought about 10 years ago, although I must say they're on their last legs.

Batting pads I only have one pair and they're still fine, but the Velcro is starting to lose its stick. I thought about buying a new pair of pads and relegating these to "net pads", but all they really need is some new Velcro!
