Since you've now recorded a 'before' photo of the possible storm damage,then if it does happen to snap at that point, you will have a case.
Score some runs with it and don't worry about it any more!

Just out of interest, where did you get that bat from?

It does look like storm damage, very similar marks to my 2018 bat - see the thread I've been running in the Bat Making section. How light is your bat? In my opinion storm damage is unlikely to be a problem unless the willow has been really over dried. If you can get hold of a moisture meter see what the percentage is, and post up the result in here.

i will take a look at your thread. My bat is around 2 lb 11 ounces after oiling, and i will try to get hold of a moisture meter soon. Thanks for the input!
