Hi all,

New to the forum! Do you guys think this is repairable?

Does the crack show on the back of the bat?
It probably is repairable, I just did one with a longer front to back split. The only thing is you never know how long the repair will last.

Welcome mate, that'll be fixable no bother at all. I've repaired worse myself and then continued to use the bat for several years.

The crack does not show on the back, no. The crack is about 2 inches in length, canít really tell how deep

Use a thin knife/strip of metal to stuff PVA glue as deep into the split as possible then clamp it up. If you don't have any clamps use parcel tape.
Leave overnight then bob's your uncle.

Best to remove toe guard first. To see if the toe is also cracked.

Definitely doable...had a split very similar on a kookaburra that has shown no signs of being an issue nearly 4 months on now...

Open the crack and fill it with glue... clamp it for 24 hours....

Then reinforce with tape or twine...

Not a big task !

cheers..
