Cracked shoulder
« on: May 28, 2017, 10:25:33 PM »

Hi folks

Thoughts on whether the following is repairable or not would be helpful. Need to decide whether it's worth trying to get it fixed, or just putting the money towards a new stick. If repairable, recommendations would be appreciated.

There's no flexibility in the handle or vibrations whilst playing a shot.

Thanks

Looks like a cracked handle rather than shoulder, if that photo shows all the damage it should be good as new when repaired.

We can re handle this (will also glue the shoulder splits) but due to the shoulder split we wouldn't be able to guarantee the re-handle.

For me, it comes down to whether it is s descent stick or not, if it is it would be worth it, if not you might be better putting your money into a new bat!

B3 thinks mine ofnsimilar damage a good few years ago now, and it's still going well, albeit in new ownership.

Highly recommended.

That'll teach me to look at the first photo and not scroll...

It can be repaired but how  knowone can say how long will it last I guess it comes down to the cost of the repair compared to the cost of a new bat.

Definitely a very nice stick and I'd love to keep using it, but if it'll go within a season then I'd rather save the money. Having said that, having it as my second bat would be an option. I'll send you an email.
