First one I decided to tackle was the Master 1000.
I originally purchased this one from Cricmart in April 2015, and sold it to my teammate a couple of months later having knocked it in but never used it.
My original review can be viewed here - http://custombats.co.uk/cbforum/index.php?topic=34375.0
As this bat has had the most use, I had a feeling the scuff sheet could be hiding something nasty. I will be removing all the stickers and sanding back to one colour of willow, so I planned to repair any damage I found first, and will refurbish one everything is fixed up and dry again.
First things first I removed the scuff sheet. The first thing I noticed was that the inside edge looks to have lead a hard life
Upon closer inspection, there were a few cracks along the grains. Please excuse the lifted willow (that will be sorted in due course)
The inside edge appears to have delaminated "a few grains in" which I will need to glue
