Sure. Here you go. These marks run along the edges and through to the back of the bat.

Hard to tell from that, storm damage that ive been shown tends to be like a grey-ish ligthing strike across the bat

Do you, by any chance, have a pic of a bat face with such marks? Couldn't find any clear pics on the forum or elsewhere.

To be fair, I can't see anyone giving you your money back for that.

Best off just using it and don't worry about it.

Def storm damage... not worth the risk... you may need to invest in several bats!

Pics of the edge and the back. The marks line up from face, along the edge and on the back.
