How to go about repairing this
« on: November 15, 2017, 08:28:41 AM »

Upon taking my toe guard and cover sheet off at the end of the season I've found a nasty surprise. As you can hopefully see from the photos, the crack goes all the way through the bat from front to back, visibly it's just over an inch high but maybe goes further inside?
Is it repairable?

Putting in a toe insert might delay the inevitable a good length of time but that looks fairly terminal.

Had awful luck with these bats... First 2 I had both cracked through on the shoulder and were replaced under warranty, now this one has done a season and might be a gonner as well!

If I were you. I would buy a spare bat "just in case".  Then I would send the broken bat to Tom,

@tom line fixed my Blueroom that was a lot worst.

 The Uzi Sports that @Churchy1989 has would be a good replacement.

I fixed one a lot worse. It was my first attempt and just looked at what Laver used to do with their lamitoe. Have a look at my FB page, I fix bats every now and then.

I do bat repairs aswell not a pro obviously but i would go with a dowel maybe 2 and bind it with twine.

It should make it a last a long while...
