Woodstock's Tour de Force was chosen as 'THE DON'S PICK 2012' by THE CRICKETER MAGAZINE in their Good Gear Guide 2012. Tour de Force and Curve bats were 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, Tour de Force was awarded an amazing 19! Both the cricketers and The Don gave the Tour de Force 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...!!
