Anyone remember Lazer? I think they were South African



Jacques Kallis started out with Lazer I think - only time I've ever seen one!

Classic Bat Company (I think they were called) with the butterfly logo

Apparently their flagship bat was butterfly willow. Must have been a decent mark-up on that? Made by Warsop, I think.

I think I'm right in saying Zenith was started by some guys from my club in Maidstone, hence they got people like Steve marsh involved, also Mark Benson from memory.

Mark Benson - the leading exponent of the 'Kent leave'. Spectators would clap thinking the bowler had beaten the bat several times in the over. :D

Zenith advert from April 1990 with the blurb stating that they were in their third year of trading with a Maidstone business address and a strong Kent backing

The Open Championship range also gets an airing (and for me this would be a contender for worst bat logo!!)

When I was growing up there were a lot of Gerry Hardstaff bats around league cricket.

Jacques Kallis started out with Lazer I think - only time I've ever seen one!

Funnily enough, my Dad used to import Lazer cricket bats, and Impact cricket bats, from Port Elizabeth in South Africa. They were made by Mick Bellingham, of Bellingham and Smith.

This was the Late naughties I believe in my Surrey schoolboy days!

Dad actually took calls from both Allan Donald and Jacques Kallis when they were in the UK! He said Kallis was extremely polite- which you can see in his interviews!

the 70s bats from Hunts with this looked lovely, love the fact they have brought them back too - looks excellent

Hunts County Bats didn't exist in the 70s. Back then it was the orignal County Sports, based in St Neots.
