Twine lovers what do u think ???
« on: September 15, 2017, 03:21:26 PM »

Hey guys..

I know most of the people around dont like using twine for bat repairs.... but for those who likes it... what do u think about this experiment i did using fishing braid line 50 pounds resistance.



Is a very thin line and offers much resistance than regular cotton twine.

and the best looks much better than cotton... almost like tape being applied ...

would love to hear ur comments....

cheers

That's some meticulous twine work!
Should do the job nicely.

Looks great! Are there any videos or instructions on how to do this job. I have a few bats I would need to do something similar but never had any clue how to go about it.

Nice job! But how does it react to a hard ball hitting it at pace? I fear your effort may be short-lived in practice.

Lovely, neat job.
Ideal if you play the 'hook' a lot, I imagine.

Sorry,

David

It's absolutely fine.  My dad used fishing lines on his bat about 20 years ago and there was no adverse effect at all.  Some believed it also added a bit of a "spring" effect when hitting the ball too. A much larger area of the bat was covered on his bat though so will be interesting to see how these two thinner areas hold up?

I think I mentioned using fishing line to bind bats on a thread some time ago, but I can't find it?!

Forgot to mention, my dad used nylon fishing line rather than braid.

Nice innovation. As an ex sea-fisherman I would be a bit concerned that over time it may cut into the soft willow (for non fishermen braid is very thin). Only time will tell.

As a fisho id be corcerned ... braid cuts through materials well due to its thin diameter vs braking strain . It is also very poor re abrasion resistance . Looks a good /neat job though .

So u mean that with braid cutting capabilities it can be "dangerous" to be used in bats??? as it may cut or damage soft willow ?

As  i told before.. i havent tested it yet.... so after testing it i may have a better idea if it works or not... or to stick to cotton twine...

Braid has virtually no stretch, this is another reason fishermen like it, you can feel every bite.
