Personally, I used to not really mind what I had on the bat as long as there was something. Then drifted towards the hammer edge after getting a Newbery GT, but after having a woodstock with their version of the hammer edge I was put off as it made the bat not have the ping. something i only realised after taking it off and keeping it plain for a while then going to a clear sheet!

Since then I've always used a clear scuff sheet as I've developed a nack for getting beautiful looking bits of wood that I want to show off :D Never used fiberglass but as the consensus is its a better alternative, I may be willing to give it a go with the next bat I get!

I sort of make my own hammer edge
I get a clear and I put fibreglass tape along the edges

I guess I'm just awkward

So out of interest:
Do you apply the clear scuff then the edge tape, or the edge tape then the clear scuff Benji?

Apply the scuff, then overlap the edge tape mostly on the scuff and slightly onto the willow to make sure the scuff doesn't lift at the edges
I also use a craft knife to lightly score the bottom I the scuff off and apply tape there that matches the contouring of the baton this example the tape doesn't actually touch the willow, but I think it looks really nice

I do exactly the same, scuff and then tape the edges. Have bought hammer edge before but the ones I got were lousy quality so returned to my usual method.

I am beginning to think the fibre sheets are actually much easier to remove than the clear sheets.

Hair dryer before removal made it easy. Then, instead of using any spirit, I oiled the bat overnight, and any remaining fibers just slid off.

Much easier than dealing with the glue residue of clear sheets.

No.

I don't think any scuff sheet will noticeably effect performance. If you think about it you're applying a thin layer (<1mm) to the face, then hitting a hard ball travelling at speed.

Were you to conduct a blind test in some way, would anyone be able to tell the difference between a naked bat, one with a hammer edge, one with a fiberglass sheet or one with a helicopter sheet on?

This gives me an idea... We'll need a few willing volunteers, one bat, several types of scuff sheet and a few of those bat wraps so you cant see what has (or hasn't) been applied to the face...

You're using a poor quality scuff sheet if its leaving residue when removing it then.
