    There's a guy in my league who bats with a DF he's had it since he was 14 - and he gets compliments on it from every team he says.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    That's the thing - DF were such a cool looking brand, even the non bat gear looked baddass. So wanted one when I was a kid.

    They were so cool. In 1988 I remember getting a Duncan Fearnley Magnum for my birthday, it was a superb bat. I also got DF pads & gloves. I think the main reason I wanted a DF was because Martin Crowe used one.

    I also subscribed to the DF newsletter, which had posters & batting tips from their stars like Border, Botham & Hick (at that stage Richards had moved to Slazenger).

    The last international player I remember using a DF bat was Daniel Vettori in the late 90's.

    Gough used Fearnley gear. Still does some clothing ads for them too.

    Edit: Reading through some love for the old GN Scoop, they've brought out a special edition for 2013, as well as a couple other retro bats. L:ast one reminds me of the Megadrive from 6 or 7 years ago

    Bevan Congdon used Duncan Fearnley bats and one season he had one that had several half large marble sized craters on the reverse side. These were coloured in black. Murray Parker also used Duncan Fearnley bats and his was distinctive for the very small 3 wicket logo on the front. Wicket Keeper Ken Wadsworth also used Duncan Fearnley bats.
