To Scuff? or Not To Scuff?
« on: May 09, 2017, 08:20:57 AM »

That is the question......

I have a H4L NV which is going well for me currently - and it is currently "Naked" I like all my bats to be like this as it allows me to repair any damage etc easily. the only issue with having the bat naked is that bat is more likely to get damage. I have an area in the middle of the blade where it is lifting after each innings coming up and I am having to glue, sand and then wax after each game. I don't mid doing this as I am looking after my fav bat but am wanting the bat to last, so am thinking about popping a scuff on it just for some added protection.

what would you do?

Scuff. My NV has always had a scuff sheet and has no damage whatsoever. Ensure you get glue right the way under the area that is lifting then use a G or F clamp to hold down while it sticks.
Good luck, I love my NV.

I like the look of a bat with cherries on it but i think the scuff sheet adds more protection and ultimately protects the blade so put them on all my bats. Also as a massive badger gives me something to do in the winter by cleaning them up, applying new scuff sheets etc

I have a scuff related question...didnt want to start a new thread for it. The scuff sheet on my new bat is cracking up after playing with the bat. Does that mean that that scuff sheet is of a poor quality or does it mean that the bat isnt fully knocked in yet?

That's why I like having my bats without them as I am a massive badger I can do it all summer lol

But wanna look after this NV

I find that Hammer Edge is a good and protects the face.

Add scuff for protection but I never do just check and clean the bat between matches.
Find like already stated edge tap works well.

After a net this eve once again the area has lifted so another glue sand and wax. I am tempted to pop a scuff on it as I think this is the bat that will take me through the season so do wish to look after it - which I know I am doing by sanding and gluing etc but is becoming a bit of a pain lol

I popped a scuff on there this evening I couldn't carry on with the constant repair lol

Will it be ok to use tomorrow? Would have around 17 hours to dry by then

Scuff sheet any day..Will prolong life of bat not just from the ball impact but from any moisture from balls under dew/wet conditions.

I get a laugh out of people who refuse to put a sleeve on a modern bat because of the old add weight or reduce performance nonsense, almost always they come back wrapped in more fiberglass tape than if they had just put a sleeve on.
