Comes in two parts. Measure out and mix them. Put tape round the toe to create a mould to pour into. Let it set overnight, then cut/sand to shape.

I'm not sure if this is what the professional batmakers use, but this is what I've used a few times on my bats. I chose white, but you can get other colours.

It's really easy to use - equal measures of both parts, pour into your mould (I use tape around the toe), and let it set. But you do need to work fairly quickly as it sets after about 5-10 minutes. I just sand it down to the right shape afterwards, which is really easy, and it ends up with a smooth finish.

95 is the hardness, you could use a few up or down depending on what you find easiest to work with.
