Scuff Sheets. Clear, Hammer edge or fiberglass??
« on: December 14, 2015, 12:24:50 PM »

There seems to be a nice collection of different views on scuff sheets at the moment - clear helicopter sheets have been popular for a long time - they are tough and hard wearing whilst keep the face nice an clean so you can still see the grains.

Fibreglass sheets seem to be making a bit of a comeback - the pros prefer them, I think because they are lighter and don't impact feel as much as the thicker sheets.

What are members' views on this?

Personally I will be using the fibre sheets this year* as I think the ball just feels better off the bat with them (could be entirely in my head), given the grains on my bats aren't perfect I don't mind covering them up.

(*I won't be changing the scuff sheet on my octane as that is too much of a massive hassle!)

Edit - have added a poll - I am expecting a range of views...!

Absolute pig to get off the bat and replace fibre sheets.

I'm waiting for @Bulldog Cricket performance enhancing scuff sheets to make a comeback.

Fibre scuff for me. Always have and always will use them.


Bats last longer, and performance isn't impacted(I've had some clear scuff that seem to deaden the bat)

Agree with Chris the feel is much better they protect much better and in truth you can see the grains just as well with the new fibre rolls we are getting through.

Pro do like them because like buzz says there lighter and they tend to keep a bat together longer

I was always a fan of the old Hammer-edge ones, they really worked for me.

@Buzz - does all this research mean you are planning on using a bat in anger in 2016?

Used to swear by naked. Now I always go clear. Can't fault the hammer edge either though. I will never go fibreglass just because of the hassle replacing them.

Naked for me  quite like seeing nice grains that fibre stuff looks horrid used clear before deadens the rebound edge sheets are always worth using.

The new 3m fibreroll doesn't take much to take off a slight warm hairdryer and bingo your away.

Great topic Buzz. Clear for me, something about it really brings out the class of a bat

Not sure which option to pick

I like the clear helicopter style for nice looking bats (my LE and GN500) but have nothing against fibreglass sheets. Have one on my Bubble and the Matrrixx.
Basically if its a munter I use fibreglass, If its nice to look at clear (sometimes with strategically placed fibreglass tape to hide blemishes or repairs!)

Clear, can't say I've noticed any performance issues using it.

I prefer and only go for clear anti-scuff sheet....but slightly wider than the usual anti-scuff sheets and not very thick. Will never go for the fibre glass facing, I would rather leave the face uncovered.
