.  My very first thoughts although of late I have seen quite a few Brands that exceed the 40% set out by the ICC so maybe not

I didn't even know there was regs regarding stickers on the bat

I litterally had a conversation with @tom line about something bery similar, but as for protection and preservation like a scuff sheet.
In the '80s I bought 2 bats from the Stuart Surridge factory in Witham. They applied a full length transparent sleeve over he entire blade and heated it to shrink it. First "facing" I ever saw. After 60 odd games in England that season the bat broke up and sounded like an empty plastic "milk bottle" hitting the ball. :)

Whilst they breach all MCC laws, those laws can be overruled at a competition level which the Big Bash is indeed doing.

I like it.. bit of fun and definitely could be a way to get kids into bats...I guess you could make a sleeve with a design on the back and clear on the front and no doubt its not that much different than a scuff sheet.

Great for charity match's, club fun days and other "branded events" where a bit more flare adds to the over all impact of the game / event.

Do you reckon Kook could bring back the Beast as a bat wrap?

That would be cool.

Hehehe.

I can't believe "Boof" endorsed such a goofy product.

Well, to each their own. If people like it, great. Use it. I just think that a lot better, more effective products are sidelined because of the "look" factor and here is a silly product all about "looks" getting traction in the market.

Apparently the Bat Wrap inventor lives here in Adelaide, so I intend to try one out.

Anyway, I cannot remember seeing this myself, but over a few beers with a old teammate he told me 20years ago Newbery had a cover that was applied with a hairdryer and at season end the owner would just cut it off and go again, no glues. this seems to preceed stickon scuff and be after the old pigskin covers used before that. Can anyone enlighten me?

Link perhaps?

yes mate, i had one on my GM Maestro back in the mid 80's. It was a plastic sleeve you would slip over the blade and heat with a hair dryer and it would shrink tight. Never really took off from what i remember. It was called heat shrink or something equally original. I bought mine from GCCCat the time.
