How many UK batmakers are there making for  'other brands' - on a reasonably large scale, I mean?

I make for a couple of other brands and am happy to do so. I wont let on who though.

I'll recognise your garage if it makes an appearance on the Newbery website!

I would respectfully have to disagree. With the exception of those ridiculous sharpie bats, it is fairly easy to source indian made bats at a fraction of the price (atleast for me as i stay in the UAE, have indian friends who visit home often and not much taxes involved). Take RS for example. If the rumor is true and they are infact manufacturing for phantom, i know the owner of RS and their top of the range english willow bats can be purchased for approximately 200 quid (in whatever profile and weight i want on the cleft of my choice).

You clearly don't know the price of the UK made bats. You're not including import duties or shipping, and rs at 200 quid are actually more expensive than most. They used to be cheaper. Not anymore.

So you don't have to pay import duty or shipping to the UK?
Seems a fair comparison...

It was said that they had lost Paul Aldred. I'd have liked to have read more speculation as to what mighr have happened. Alas, it was not forthcoming.

I'm sure you'd be a more than adequate replacement, John. Although, from what people say, their ideas about pressing might be difficult to work with?

Their bats looked very Huntsy when I visited Hove last season.

Recently went to phantom and purchased a bat for myself for the season (first phantom bat).
 Yes, the guy did tell me they don't source their bats from TK and are instead sourcing from India. As per him, the TK made bats have suffered in quality over  time although how much truth in that, god knows.

Yeah their pressing ideas are a little strange but they have the adjustable warranty to cover themselves. I think there is a reason they are the only ones that offer pressing options like that but thats just my view

I think they were made by hunts for a period, not sure if they still are using them for some but they have 2-3 makers now I think

Hunts were making some Newbury bats last season for sure, I saw them on a visit.

I have few old TK bats from 2012-2013 and they are still quality bats. I dont trust anything he says. He just tried to maximize his profit and there is nothing with it but you shouldnt use the TK bats quality as an excuse.
