Apollo: The God of Power

For the seasoned cricketer who is ready for the ultimate test.

“Apollo is a refinement of the Jumbo, designed by my uncle Stuart Surridge and made famous by players like Viv Richards and Clive Rice. The old Jumbo had an elongated spine, going up the centre of the bat towards the handle, and then cut away sharply at the bottom of the splice.

But many people found this bat too heavy, so I’ve lowered and sloped the spine towards the handle end of the bat. It still has its enlarged sweet spot of old but has a lighter scale weight.”

  • Delivery

    Once you’ve ordered your Swannack item, we’ll confirm everything to you in an email. Please allow up to 7 working days for delivery within the UK and 10-14 days for items being sent outside of the UK. Delivery is by courier and will need to be signed for.

  • Bat Weight

    We don’t mark our bats with their weight. Bats will feel heavier or lighter dependent on its design, even if they’re the same scale weight. Our bats are bottom heavy, with a longer drive and more central power spot, so ideal for the 1-day or 20-over game.
