So Who Do We Use for Knocking-In these days?
« on: February 24, 2018, 11:12:34 AM »

Any recommendations for who to use for knocking in these days?

I wont do it myself, so I just wondered if anyone has had a positive experience recently?

Morrant do a decent job. A friend had his SG knocked in by them. Ticked all the boxes. I have had a couple knocked by VKS and they did a great job as well.

@FattusCattus  the absolute man is @neilhembrow180. Bloke is an artist when it comes to knocking in. Wouldnt let anyone else do my bats. Theres knocking in Ive seen from shops that offer a service and never seem to do a proper job then theres what Neil does. Which is basically get it genuinely match ready.

I do it myself, purely to get my revenge on the neighbours for screaming the house down at least once a week!

I just knocked my new one in for about 90 seconds and got sick. Im going to have a 90 minute nap then go back for another 90 seconds! Might be good to go for the 2019 season.

Do you use the ball-in-sock methods or do you have an actual mallet?
