How Are Cricket Bats Made? - Discovery UK
« on: July 04, 2020, 08:57:21 PM »

Documentary from Discovery showing how a cricket bat is made - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnArkEguLIo

There is footage from Sareen sports and J.S Wright.

Some interesting names from the SS factory!

I think they are probably bats they have on file from various manufacturers in order to study and copy shapes and other features

Theres a kookaburra bat in there, and they are made by SG, always have been (since being Indian made at least)

The fact that the superior Salix finish can still be identified in an average quality screenshot says it all for me.

There is also a real mix of handle quality in that lot.

No, not really. It was the sharpie written "Salix" on the toe that gave it away.

Maybe they are samples and so is M&H. :D

It probably helps them when players or customers have seen certain shapes and want the same or variations.

Makes perfect sense for a bat manufacturer with a large customer base.

Unless Salix have bought a new lathe, none of those 'Salix' marked bats are Salix made anyway.

That Kesel Sport in the top left corner looks massive no matter who made it. Top profile.

I think you may have missed the point.
