Not sure I agree with the kookaburra surge but laver would be up there


Top 5 for everyone else?

I'd agree on the Millichamp and you could pick a load of GN stickers from around that era which were class. I quite like a lot of the older Kippax stickers and some older Slazenger stickers like a V100 stick(!) with me too but it is hard to say what looks good now. I guess a lot of the appeal is nostalgia

Off the top of my head and in no particular order:

Redback Paradox - absolutely love these, finally got a set then stuck them on a bat I'm now selling  :( Redbck keep saying yes to selling me some sets but then never actually do. if anyone lives locally let me know  :D



Laver and Wood Green Shield - Classics, and on the first absolute gun bat I ever used (borrowed for the day)



Kookaburra Gold Grown - Childhood Dream bat


Slazenger V600 - Same, mostly due to Hick.



Gunn and Moore Purist (or any other of that era), just simply the all time best



Classic Millichamp ones

I'm with you on the V600s @Kulli

I had the worst Saturday job in order to save up for a 5 Star and it was an absolute rocket. I got to the 125 mark and quit there and then.

Any pre SD Slazenger is in with a shout

Only Kook sticker I've ever liked

Nostalgia.. older one though obviously

Something Hunts with the stag for more nostalgia...

This is what a bat should look like in my eyes :)

For me these are the best looking bats sticker wise

Original Kook bubble as used by Alec Stewart
Slaz V-range from the 90s loved the green V600 and the red and black V100
GN classic range, modern stickers on current range, love the new Powerspot and just look so classy
Laver and wood classic green logo
Finally the new H4L range, think the new design and colour options are superb

I wouldn't have said so before, but maybe you have a point.

TBH I prefer the most minimal stickers possible. I like the old fashioned GN Legend look. I've taken most of the stickers off my B3s.

I like a lot of the stickers that people have put up - Laver & Wood and Millichamp always favorites. Of course the old school Slazenger ones - images of Viv and Alan Lamb come to mind!

I would say Kookaburra did some amazing stickers back in the day -

The Bubble


The Gold Crown


The Ridgeback


I really like the Hunts Caerulux -


Then i know they can be a bit marmite but the bats that i use Choice have great stickers -
