Face is fine and so is the performance to be honest, was just a bit shocked when I saw this under the sticker.

Repost, but if whoever made this 300+ CEAT had used filler I wouldn't have been tempted to lift the sticker and find an unwelcome surprise across the whole of the upper area...

I'm sure it has no effect but I'd be miffed to find anything under a sticker personally.

@Gurujames I hope your other half doesn't browse the forum  :o  :D

But I think the point is, you would not have bought it if you was that. Was it an online purchase? did they show you the bat?

Not online no. Went to the factory, told them what I wanted, and the bat was made and collected a week later.

That's horrible
They could have used it as an autograph bat or something

Questionable quality control if that's being allowed out the door at that money

I wasn't going to reply to this thread, instead let it play out but actually I think we need to point a few things out.

1. The bat in question was brought back to us for a weight reduction, it got put back onto the machine and we removed 4 ounces (I think) - a link the this topic can be found here  http://custombats.co.uk/cbforum/index.php?topic=42394.0
2. We didn't hide anything - the knot location was under the sticker, we didn't move the sticker, or add a new sticker to hide this. This doesn't happen very often, and Chris is right,on a new bat this would be communicated to the customer before sale but as this was effectively a refurb, when the knot was revealed in the weight reduction - we filled, polished and stickered.

This goes on an awful lot, both in Asian, UK and Australian made bats -This is the main reason why companies have large stickers that cover a large area - to cover things up. B3 Cricket have fairly minimal stickers but above that are very honest with this sort of thing.

Lets play fair!

When you start work on a raw cleft you never sure what you are going to find.

A knot must be showing on one side or other, mustn't it? A knot can't exist in the middle of a piece of wood?

I would expect to pay under 40 for any willow that blemished
