have they really been banned? My Laver has a carbon handle. And if they have, then surely it would only apply to county and international cricket?

i dunno, i dont think any international players use it. The gray nicolls one would break and im not sure about the laver and wood one. And imagine the dreadfull sound the bat would make with the GN handle if it hit the toe.

haha. Can you imagine Ricky Ponting walking out to bat, with his graphite Kookaburra and Carbon handle, I wonder what the umpires would have to say?!

From what I know, they don't affect the weight at all, just make the top look a bit different!

How can you know this?

And Josh, it applies to all forms of the game, but in lower forms of cricket, you are allowed a high percentage of the handle made of carbon

Very very few international pro's use carbon handles, a couple use the Laver (not many though) and another few use the Newbery C6+
