Does anyone still use duncan fearnley?

Not that I am aware of in the FC game.  They are constantly requesting sponsorship applications from promising junior players though which suggests it is fairly quite down there

GN Powerspot that I pretty much pinched off my dad as he had pretty much finished playing by then.

Still got it in the garage but its in a poor state - I started a project to refurb it back to past glories but never got around to it - must pick that one back up and get it finished.

Symonds Tusker shared with my older brother.  The next one was SG Sunny Tonny.

When fresh of the boat in 1984 my team mate let me use his DF and I still remember the feel of that bat.  Wish there was a way to get similar shape bat from DF and keep the cost down

I remember Paul Aldred talking about the DF Magnum profile, as one of the reasons behind his starting his operation. For sure he could recreate it for you, and if you chose butterfly willow it would be very reasonably priced. It wouldn't be a Magnum from DF,  but you'd be close.
