I'm not either, looks strange doesn't really fit in with the usual sticker designs!

That can be used for all formats of the game, like a normal bat.....

Saw that the other day in the t20 game, not that it did him much good! No sign of it on the warsop website when I looked the other day.

What is he doing in the first picture :O..... but back on topic I don't particularly like the stickers I think the current ones look much nicer these ones look to mainstream Kookaburra, Addidas you know those 'modern' bat manufacturers. The profile looks quite nice on Napier's 4th pic.

Perhaps more interestingly, is Napier wearing glasses?

It might be a t20 bat.  What I mean is it's for the televised t20 competition- it's far easier for the person watching on tv to see that that's a Warsop bat, than it is with their ordinary stickers...

Find it a shame that they have to create such broad, striking stickers just for publicity really. Such a great brand like Warsop have to create stickers like that just to attract some attention is not justice to a company like them

the marlin sticker is for Mark Pettini not Graham Napier,the Marlin is because Pettini loves fishing,

there is also an ochre whale sticker that James Foster is using at the moment but its not for him, i was told who it was for but have since slept and been drunk too many times to remember.

i have a warsop platinum with red stickers (awesome) that you see on the web site and most people who see it are very impressed with the look and then when they pick it up and hit a few, then its where did you get it from and how much.

i travelled nearly 500 miles for my bat, and i know you might think their expensive but you don't have to hit the ball hard for it to go a long long way just time it. that's the quality.

also the people at warsop are brilliant and can't do enough for you, just ask for Clere
