Just get some glue in there and clamp it up I'd say

A wrap of tape around and a bit of weight on top as the glue dries will do the same job. Clamps are only a few pounds and it's satisfying to fix stuff so worth the small investment IMO :)

Don't think I'd even even bother trying to clamp that, absolutely nothing to worry about. Drip some superglue into the crack and then a quick rub with some sandpaper before the glue dries, job done.

Literally all my bats look like that as a barely knock them in up there( I realise that gym claim ready to play etc)

Its never had a detrimental effect on the bats performance and or longevity.

To be safe buy 2 bats as you will need to a back up, as soon as you see  a hairline crack.  :D

Yep Aldred video has a new application here.

Get some superglue into the wallet. Just let it seep into the crack where the notes and credit cards go. Sand and then bash it with a mallet.

You should find it will hold together until you can get it to a bat maker who will fleece you for two bats and a repair.  :D
