Isn't part of the point with cotton twine that it shrinks as the glue in it dries?

Not saying you can't do it with other materials, just thought that was the point.

Yes also traditional waxed cotton twine is used  because of its strength doesn't stretch and fairly easy to work with.

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...



Possibly could damage willow . Time will tell . Id be more worried about the braid gettting scuffed by the ball and losing its structural integrity due to its poor abrasion resistance. 
But as stated elsewhere,  you won't ever know unless you try .

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.

Hey, i didnt did a video as promised but this is a new video posted in youtube and is how i do it.. the only thing i DONT do is scraping the bat before binding it....
