When the South African cricket team toured Australia in season 2001/2002 we were very interested to see what kind and style of cricket bats the South African batsmen were using. South Africa is one of the stronger cricketing nations and it was accordingly always going to be an interesting exercise to have a look at what blades the South African batsmen were using to plunder many a bowling attack across the world.

Bellingham & Smith have supplied cricket bats to the majority of South Africa's Test and One Day International players for a number of years. Under the guidance of master pod shaver Mick Bellingham, Bellingham & Smith cricket bats are now 'actually' being used by numerous international test cricketers around the world.

As with Laver & Wood and Bradbury cricket bats you wont actually see the original decals on these international cricketers bats as they are covered over with a players sponsoring companies imagery and decals. As you may have read in About our Cricket Bats section Middlepeg is not interested in pretty stickers and cricket bat marketing - we are only interested in the best, 'actual' and real cricket bats that international cricketers use.

Having seen first hand a range of the South African cricketers bats we were quite keen to get a sample range in ourselves for our testing program. Cricket bats used by and given to international players are often much higher in quality than what everyday cricketers can buy in a shop (apart from Laver & Wood and Bradbury cricket bats which are all made to the same high exacting standards regardless of who you are) so we accordingly wanted to see what normal samples of Bellingham & Smith cricket bats were like.

Given that Middlepeg now enthusiastically carries, promotes and sells Bellingham & Smith all around the world you are correct to assume that the cricket bats came through our testing program with flying colours. Bellingham & Smith cricket bats met and exceeded all levels of expected quality and performance.

Middlepeg decided to carry the top two models of cricket bats from the Bellingham & Smith range. The FireBlade and the Limited Edition are bats that are actually used by international cricketers and both offer an outstanding blade made from the best Grade One English Willow personally hand selected by Middlepeg. Middlepeg also offers a Custom Made Bellingham & Smith whereby your cricket bat will be handmade for you to your own preferred size, weight and shape specifications.

Only the top 10% of Grade 1 English Willow clefts are selected to make this grade of bat. Similarly the handles are very carefully selected. Regarded by many as one of the finest cricket bats in the world and Middlepeg certainly thinks they are up there with the best.
