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.

Can you imagine how many chix you'd get if you walked out with one of these:
Used to wield one, can confirm.
Valid bump, best thread on the site.
Gave me a full kit while I played last season in Worcester, now look cool as **** playing with the retro stickers in Aus.
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

1970's New Zealand Report
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.
