Tell ian bell that matey

Most bat makers have made for one pro or another. Throwing names about isnt helpful as all makers could do that. The mark of a good brand isnt whats top players use it (as we know they get the good willow and full treatment).. its what the bang middle of the range bat is like if you literlaly walked up and picked 10 out . No special custom this or that,, just 10 off the shelf

As Ive said before, from thr many Ive seen its been a 5050 split.. so in this case Id expect circa 5 to be decent and 5 to be below par. Hence why for me, I wouldnt risk buying one unless i was going too grade a side Im sure that means theyll give you there better willow etc

Always just a personal opinion though as thats what all thoughts on brands are from everyone

I have seen pictures of england cricketers having his bats (hawk), so its not just naming as the owner said dont use this shape just because root came and picked this shape etc

Are you a simpleton?

Theres hundreds of pros out there... do you think they all go running to one manufacturer?

No denying Hawk make decent bats ( I've never used one but nay people speak highly of them), but there's so many others... if you like Hawk fair play. However to say they are the best is very subjective.

A well like brand at our club, some absolute guns among them, however I always see quite a few going in for repair/exchange, whether it's the bats or the preparation of the owner, I dunno.

This to me anyway is what Id look for. If a brand produces quality time after time at the mid range then the higher ranges should in theory be as good or better.

Win win then

I have had 2 Hawks (cricket bats, not birds!) and they have been decent enough.
The lighter one I sold on a long time ago. And I sold a heavier Hawk in my last clear out or the one before...can't remember which.
But decent enough bats and I seem to remember using a Pro one in the nets a few years ago. Was a lovely bat...pick up was great, well balanced and response off the middle was superb.
But was the "pro" any better than some of the other bats I have had? The answer is No, better than some but not as good as others.
But this is subjective really. People likes different weights, different handle shapes, different balance and different feel! Also some like clean 8 grains, some like 30 grains, some like heartwood, and some butterfly stains.
What I am try to say is that everyone is different and to say that there is only ONE brand that everyone should worship is more that a little niave!
That said, if you love the brand then sing it from the rooftops. But try not to be so insanely biased that you sound worryingly obsessive.
