cricket bat workshop in london city
« on: July 01, 2015, 10:48:07 PM »

Hi
I need to replace my bats handle that i am using for about 5 years but i can't get runs from it cause the handle is very slim to my lickings. I need a thick handle to be replaced on it as the blade is very good condition. Please if you have this service and in London city where public transport can get there contact me on my number 07456615114

I wonder if there is a direct correlation between the bat not scoring any runs and the blade being in good condition?  ;)

As above, before re-handling try adding a grip or 4 to get the handle to the desired thickness.

extra binding or/and a double thickness grip?

I am pretty sure there aren't any bat workshop's in the city - you have a couple of options - get a ticket to the Lords or Oval test matches and see if GN stand there can do it for you or send it to one of the forum sponsors on here to do - certainly red ink, vitas, hel4leather, kippax can help you.

posting it will be your best bet.

even better if you have an example handle that you like.

Preferably one that you don't have to lick mind.

Do it slip out of your hand alot if you're licking it?

I suspect you may have worn it down a little by licking it - which is why it is so thin.
