We handcraft each bat with care in order to get the best performance from each piece of willow and once it leaves us it will need to be looked after, please find instructions on caring for your new bat in the bat guide section.
The willow is a raw material and is not indestructible, if your bat does break or needs some attention due to wear and tear then we can usually repair it. Because we make all our bats by hand we are good at fixing them too, if you've driven a yorker, caught a flyer, caught the edge or the splice, even if the handle has fallen out; do not despair, we will do our best with the repair.
Over the years we have learnt a few things about repairing people's favourite bats and our repairs are exceptionally high quality. The glue we use is stronger than the timber itself and is also flexible, so it very rarely breaks in the same place after being repaired. It is always best to get a professional to repair bats; home style DIY repairs often hinder rather than help. No amount of batting tape or nails can replace the quality of the correct adhesive. Bats lose little to no performance when professionally repaired.
Bat breaks are unfortunately part of the game but there are a few things you can do to prolong the life of your bat; Making sure it is knocked in and oiled and trying not to toe tap but most importantly please ensure you are using a good quality ball as this is one of the main reasons bats breaks. Cheap sub-standard balls have no give in them and cause damage. Our cricket balls have many layers of cork and string which absorb the shock waves; a cheaper ball may cost you more in repairs in the long run and lastly please retain any pieces of timber that may fly out of your bat as they may not be able to be repaired without these pieces.
