You have to remember lots of big brands press that bit harder on the lower grades as the mark up is not that much...They do not like lower end models coming back.

when all else fails - how about..... an attempt to convert it into a laminate ?! Not sure how that would be done - I guess you saw it (horizontally) from the toe up (up till a few inches below the splice, then pry it open and glue it back, to replicate what a laminate is? Sounds absolutely insane, but if you have the tools, why not go for it!

Or just glue a lump of wood on the back

That would make perfect sense

Northern what is he difference between a grade 4 UK English willow bat that is dead as an iron bar and a grade 1 or 2 English willow bat that does 'ping'

It's same wood but one has more elasticity than the other? Or is it all to do wi the pressing?

There's normally cosmetic differences but what else if anything separates the grades.

Something I've always wondered.

Id say its down to whos pressing it

No ones ?daft enough to run a genuine grade one cleft through a press without checking it etc
Where as the lower grades are probably pushed through the press on a standard setting, hence you might get some decent pressed lower grades, due to the variances in the clefts.
If I was paying for the clefts, Id be taking extra care with those genuine grade ones, taking care not to over press em

Im sure theres plenty of batmakers press each cleft on merit, but Im fairly sure with others its more of a lottery
