Tom Croft the Leicester tigers and England Rugby superstar joined the Eley Hawk Team as a brand ambassador for Zenith.
Tom an avid game shooter and deer stalker has a long affinity with shooting, and has been shooting in one form or another since the age of 18. Explaining his passion for shooting – "Shooting has given me so much in my life, the aspects of safety, discipline and ethical shooting have set me up well with the right positive attitudes to team work and rugby." "The world of game shooting is a great way for me to decompress and get perspective and is the one of the things that sustains me as I play in the highly pressured world of rugby."
Tom has long admired the Eley Hawk cartridges and has shot with them most of his life. “They are the authentic brand of shotgun cartridges in my eyes and definitely have been a faithful companion on my journey in the world of game shooting. Dependable and reliable and built to exacting standards they are the right cartridges for my game shooting."
Zenith was launched in October 2015 and have been well received right across the game shooting market. The unique 0.08mm coating of copper keeps the shot together by reducing deformation in the barrel. Tom who now shoots Eley Zenith 32 gram 5’s on pheasant was particularly impressed – “ it’s clearly a better cartridge, the pattern and the quality of the humane kills I achieved with them was phenomenal.” he continues “ I am really looking forward to working with Eley Hawk across the next game season”
