Batting with no scuff sheet
« on: December 17, 2022, 07:44:35 PM »

Does anyone here bat without a scuff sheet? If so did you notice extra ping?

I guess firstly depends what level you can bat at, will it make a difference ?

What are you scoring at the moment ..

What is your level ?

What is your average ? What level do you bat at ?

What bats are you using out of interest ?

A scuff sheet will make no difference to ping imo, regardless of level you play at etc

Very true. Do you offer a binding service. I have a new bat that needs binding.

Are you talking adding extra handle binding or toe/shoulder binding? I can do both, but don't recommend toe/shoulder binding, especially on new bats. I personally don't think it adds any value tbh.

Once a bat is seasoned I don't tend to use a scuff sheet.

Its got pro bat tape on it not sure what its called. Only has a few cms of binding on near the shoulder so the rest of the handle needs binding.

Do you do the new keeley style toe guards. I need one on my match bat doing.

Cool. Do you notice any seam marks or cracks during use without a scuff?

Yeah i can certainly bind the handle if needed mate. I use liquid rubber toe guards. Similar to the Keeley ones, but not quite as hard. Personally feel they need to be softer and they stay on, also wear particularly well. Mine was ok all last season, hardly wore at all and i tap a lot

Actually it does. Depends on the quality of scuff. I recently got my bats refurbed locally and the person applied scuff made in subcontinent (super thick one). I felt a significant dropped in the ping until I removed it and apply a better quality scuff.

I stand corrected then mate. Must have been some seriously thick scuff sheet! I only use top quality scuff sheets and don't see any noticeable difference myself, so was speaking from a personal point of view.

Can understand why it would feel crap if you're using a big thick, low quality scuff sheet. Never noticed any difference using good quality sheets.

Yes mate! One of my friends went to visit back home and I asked him for scuff sheets, he called me and told me they had 4/5 different type of scuff depending on budget. Most people in states try to maximize their profit by using cheap scuff. I only use UK made clear scuff sheets on my bats. I buy rolls of it and apply on my bats myself.

@Sloggerz Once its knocked, no seam marks. Any superficial cracks can be repaired with TLC, or more accurately, glue, sandpaper and fiberglass tape.

There was actually a manufacturer on here a few years ago who claimed that his scuff sheets improved performance.
