Yeah the question was about the amount players clearly using Keeley bats with Keeley branding. Surely the pros are not paying for these and all the softs.

They don't sponsor any massive names with the Keeley brand, so it's probably just a case of kit for the player. Which at cost price is probably about 300 a player.

We put that address into the GPS and it took us to some ladies house. She was like WTF when a huge bus turned up.
The factory is a out 500 meters further down the road on the right.

Do they really make a high number though compared to GM/ SS/ etc who reeeally churn out bats? They clearly aren't short of work but the numbers are anyone's guess

A solid consistent process, not doing that many customs, not having to get too distracted by marketing promoting themselves and churning out a handful of shapes pre-made to the rough shape to be stickered elsewhere in most cases seems a doable business model when the quality sells itself.

I wonder if as Keeley's own sticker brand grows, the supply to other brands may whither to mitigate.

Its unlikely. SS is a huge brand and they still make bats for players not sponsored by them

I think Alvaro was referring to brands such as Phantom and BB, who he currently makes for, rather than individual players.

A little birdie told me that Phantom have already moved all production (except for the absolute top grade) to RS in india. I recently also saw a teammate's Phantom Dark edition and it had all the traits of an indian bat.

Thought the dark edition was the absolute top grade!

From what I've heard this is very much the case, but when you've been busy making 500+ bats for the world cup you can understand why (!!)

Can you just turn up at the factory or do you need an appointment?
I only ask as the contact form on the website has so far drawn a blank!!

You need to email through first. They can take a long time to respond so I would get onto it early.
