LXX, the number 70 in Roman numerals, celebrates Centurion founder Colin's Henderson's 70th birthday late last year. To commemorate this milestone, we have a limited number of 15 Limited Edition cricket bats.
These bats are made of some of the finest Grade 2 willow, hand picked by Colin himself and lovingly finished in New Zealand to his high standards. They feature beautiful labels in stunning metallic gold, gloss black & silver foil colour's synonymous with his own cricket club in Bay of Plenty which he is still Club Patron.
Another great feature of these labels is they were designed by a young Luke Hibbert during a competition we ran during 'Lockdown 2020'. Luke's design resonated with Colin and, true to our word, we turned his design into the LXX.
Why Grade 2 willow? Colin is a big believer in keeping the game affordable and by using grade 2 willow he can do that. At just $550, these bats are an absolute steal. Some will have the odd blemish in them but rest assured, it won't effect performance!
The bats all feature a retro style with big sweet spots and edges. Round handles come standard and the toe is semi rounded in the old style. At Colin's request, every bat will have the edges 'boned' in the old master craftsman way to give them a slightly rounded look. Toe guards are available on request.
All bats come with a spare grip, limited edition black & gold bat cover and knocked in, ready to play by our state of the art knocking in machine. Toe guard available free of charge upon request.
