I notice that you could have a situation in the next round where you have Hawk vs Adidas - which are essentially the same bats with different stickers on. I appreciate that this isn't the only situation when this could happen - are we supposed to vote on which stickers we like in that case?! ???

I just wonder why no-one has had the idea to set up a central place where every companies bats are sent to be refurbed surely this would be easier.

I'm glad Warsop won that!

I just hope that there isn't a Newbery v Warsop final...

The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.

Well that is a little disrespectful to the main man who is more than happy to shape a bat himself, Tom has bought part made bats from me that much is true.

Yeah i appareciate that but he doesnt like selling them on as ayrteks, he does do a good job though in all fairness to him, after frankie its been full steam ahead. I'll judge it on his bats then :D, although i ma fond of his stickers anyway with all choices of colour and personalisation.

Here we go again. Hunts County about to get mullered by H4L in the CBWC, despite having come up with some very innovative bats (Modulus and original Reflex) and also some absolute belters (my various Insignias, + mate's Mettle). So much for people knowing the brands we haev in the country!

I guess the Mark Butcher "This bat's brilliant" has more impact for H4L than ever! Owning both, but not yet having used the H4L, I'll reserve judgement!)

I don't disagree. If you've used both brands it is, otherwise, as Talisman says, it's a popularity contest. That's what makes it frustrating and interesting in equal measure.

I wonder how many people have used half the bats that get votes?
