Black Prince

The most feared Prince in all of Christendom,scorn of the French,ferocious on the battlefield but a paragon of Chivalry he embodied the very essence of the medieval Knight.

From the Battle of Crecy to the Battle of Poitiers the Black Prince led his troops to victory even capturing the King of France.

He died before he was able to be King of England and was laid to rest in his famous black amour.

Choice Willow bespoke handcrafted bats carry on the English bat making tradition of the willow being grown and then the bat made in this country.

All Choice Willow handcrafted adult and Limited edition junior bats are from top[ quality Grade 1 English Willow. The willow is supplied by J S Wright & Sons who have been supplying English Willow to bat makers around the world since 1854. In keeping with this tradition we use the same methods that have been passed on for decades.

Handcrafted by our master bat maker. He or our staff will help you through the process of deciding what weight, size pickup and handle shape needed to suit your style of play. He then will craft and balance each piece of willow to the quality product that you require.

The best narrow grain timber used by test players throughout the world. The L.E grade comes with a 1 year free winter service.


Top grade timber with 7 – 10 grains. Universally reconised as one of the best. The Test grade comes with a 1 year free winter service.


Durability and performance with 6 – 8 grains

There are many views surrounding grains on a cricket bat. Generally speaking though, the number of grains on a cricket bat is something that can be left to the discretion of the individual. The number of grains will often differ from bat to bat. A cricket bat between 6 and 12 grains is a good indicator of quality willow. Cricket bats with 6 grains, for example, are likely to be slightly softer than 10-12 grains and therefore take longer to knock-in and reach optimal performance initially. However, please note there are some extremely good premium range bats with lower grains.

    Hi there,

    Bat has arrived this morning and I would like to thank the whole team at choice for how well I have been treated regarding my first bat breaking. I am so happy with the second bat you’ve made for me and with the upgrade to the Test edition.
    Can you please advise me on any additional bat care I will require to apply before I have a net or play with the bat.

    Thanks again

    Hi Simon,

    I would like to thank you again for such great service from Choice and my equipment is perfect!

    I have shown my kit to Dan from CM Cricket (new cricket shop in Leicestershire) who is really impressed with the quality of the kit and he is interested in stocking some Choice kit in the new cricket shop.

    I have copied him into this email as I think the Choice bats and equipment would do really well in the shop.

    I look forward to hearing from you and I hope to visit the Choice Cricket Centre at some point this season,

    Thanks again,

    I was given a great sponsorship deal and I found the products were really top quality. I purchased a kit bag, bat, gloves and pads. Gloves and Pads are really comfortable and fit well. The kit bag (wheelie/duffle) is great, although some small issues with the wheelie aspect where it gets stuck sometimes, but otherwise great! And the bat, it’s a monster! The willow and look is really top quality and the performance and feel is like nothing I’ve previously used! I highly recommend these products!
