Minor toe cracks..Suggestions please
« on: May 31, 2017, 09:43:03 PM »

Hey guys,
Minor cracks on new SG bat after some throw downs. Remind me never to give my bat to someone who thinks throw down is an actual match.
How would you go about fixing this?
I am thinking wood glue, keep it clamped for 24 hrs or so and then some fiberglass tape. Maybe a toe guard?

You never give your new bat to anyone. Period. Regardless, new bats are vulnerable in the toe area and do require quite a bit of preparation.

Inject Wood glue  in the bat crack with a syringe and then clamp the toe for 48 hours.

Were they hitting the ball or just whacking the floor?

Has it been used in the wet, looks a bit like the sort of splits bats tend to get after being wet then drying.

It was on astroturf nothing wet about it. It's easier to find someone who will bat when doing throwdowns then throw the balls.
Toe was knocked more than an hr.

I dislike the bat preparation part, never sure when you are fully done and ready for the next step.

After a repair on a bat like this, I would stick a layer of Shoe Goo along the toe. Acts as a toe guard and ensures no water goes directly into the toe.

Sounds good! Will do that.

A gun is no more dangerous than a cricket bat in the hands of a madman.

- Took the scuff sheet and edge tape off
- Cleaned and sanded
- Glued and clamped

Next Steps
- Apply shoe goo
- Oil and knock more (Not much around the toe)
- Apply fiberglass around the toe and edges
