Five minutes with Tom Croft, the Leicester Tigers and England Rugby superstar and Eley Hawk ambassador.

Tom is an avid game shooter and deer stalker, who has a long affinity for shooting having started when he was 18 years old. Explaining his passion for shooting, he begins: "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 teamwork and rugby. The world of game shooting is a great way for me to decompress and gain perspective."

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," he adds. "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 shoots Eley Zenith 32 gram No. 5s on pheasant and remains impressed. “It’s clearly a top game cartridge; the pattern and the quality of the humane kills I achieved with them time and again is phenomenal.”
