Maverick

£185.00£600.00

This bat has derived from a couple of old profiles we made. The silver Sovereign and the original classic. A long flat looking spine running to an exaggerated duckbill toe giving immaculate feel. Less pronounced edge sizes gives it a more traditional flowing shape that catches the eye of the connoisseur.

With its minimal decals and swish marks down the back this creates a beautiful looking bat that you’d walk to the crease with pride regardless of its venue.

The premier package is an exclusive package with a limited edition premier cleft, complete with a full bat cover, towel and toiletry shower bag.

Zenith

£185.00£600.00

Zenith is a tribute to an era of cricket and the great players at that time that inspired me to become a professional cricketer. A great era before the game started to change in to the formats we see now. Zenith (The highest point achieved by a heavenly body) a few of my heros were certainly that.

A full bodied bat with a pick up that mystifies those who pick it up for the first time and a performance to match.

Union

£185.00£600.00

The union is a unity of a few different shapes, hence a union, bringing a bat will a full bodied hitting area and concaving in the upper portion and toe portion of the bat. Spine height is reduced slightly along with edge height but still giving the appearance of a huge bat that picks up incredibly light with ultra big performance. The fullness of the middle area gives you a confident feeling that you have a lot of bat in your hand. Plus you get to flaunt the flag of Great Britain whilst you score your 100s.

Icarus

£185.00£600.00

With a long flowing spine that runs all the way into the toe of the blade, the icarus is for those who like the appearance of wood running all the way down the blade.

Classic

£185.00£600.00

Whilst the original classic is still available by request we’ve changed the profile of our original classic in 2021 just to bring a new look to it. This is to celebrate the grate profiles I remember from my playing days that so many of the world greats of that scintillating era of the 80s and 90s used and shone with. This bat has the traditional long spine elegantly blended in to the toe area. With a nice fullish back gently contoured to help with weight and feel and with classic tapered edges, the classic really is a bat of power whilst holding on to those vintage looks of my own playing days.

Designed for players of the shorter form of the game, the Titan is a beast of a bat, featuring no concaving at all yet maintaining beautiful balance despite being a longer handled bat.
