Don't know why they don't get mentioned on here more. Very good bats, handmade and great customer service. Lots of league players use them in Worcestershire and the players who use them always seem to get runs. Had one last season that was given to me, but I sold it to a team mate as it was just a bit heavy. He's scored a stack load of runs since.

Hi @TheFlipper do you have a relationship with the guys at Hawk at all?
I had a team mate who bought a couple of Hawk bats, but that was a long time ago, they were decent enough bats, if a very traditional shape.
They used to make brilliant thigh pads, I wish I had never sold the first pair I bought from them, it would have saved me probably 200 😮😮😮😂😂😂

One of the worst bats I ever saw was a teammates Hawk. Was pressed to within an inch of its life and just felt awful. Never even considered anything from them since.

How long ago? They have changed a lot since their earlier days. A former team mate got 300 not out in a Worcester League match 2 years ago using a Hawk. They seem are highly rated in Worcester & Birmingham league.

Used to see a lot and Id say 5050.:9r are very good and some are planks . Literally 5050 split from what Ive seen used and its enough that its not just the odd bat.

If you get a good one though they are as good as anything

You could probably say that about most manufacturers. Cricket bats are all different.
