Woodstock Cricket Co are delighted to announce that our Tour de Force bat has been chosen as 'THE DON'S PICK 2012' by THE CRICKETER MAGAZINE in their Good Gear Guide!! This is an amazing honour and achievement for our first entry into the Guide. We submitted the Tour de Force and Curve bats to be tested by a panel of cricketers and by 'The Don', a secret pro, who in the words of the magazine, 'knows his stuff.' Out of a possible 20 points, we were awarded an amazing 19! Both the cricketers and The Don gave the TDF 5 stars. The cricketers also awarded 5 stars to the Curve! This is what The Don had to say about the Tour de Force:

"As soon as I picked it up I knew it would be a cracking bat. The grain is beautiful, up there with the best, and I love the shape. It's a perfect little bow, with a sweet spot right where it should be, and The Don wants to keep it." - what more can we say...!!
