New bat preparation
« on: September 30, 2018, 11:18:29 PM »

I have received my new bat yesterday but seller has not done the knocking-in which I have asked for.
Now, I have to do knocking by myself but it came with scuff sheet(including image link) .
1) I would like to ask expert member whether I should remove scuff sheet for bat preparation?
2) Should I use linseed oil or wax? which one is better? (ps - I have both at home)

Hi, welcome! Firstly, I hope you didn't buy that hoping it was a genuine SS Maximus!

Secondly, here's a good guide:

Hope that helps, and the bat is a gun despite being counterfeit!

There's no TON stamp on the edges and it's odd to see a red toe guard on is (although some do come with toe guards so not uncommon).

Not sure if it's the camera but the handle doesn't look like it's set straight, rather it's at an angle.

New ones dont have edge stamps. If grains match front, back, and shoulders it legit

Where was the bat purchases and for how much? This could give some clues.

Yes, the grains on the back and front are matching. The seller or company has fitted the toe guard so can't see if the grains are going straight through the toe.
It was custom(made to order) long blade bat and came with new 2019 stickers. The quality of the stickers, bat and finishing of the bat making me believe that it is a genuine bat. But nowadays, fake products are working on looks and made people believe that it's genuine, so can't be 100% sure.
I have paid 260 + 20 for postage.

Yep looks a decent bit of wood but if it is fake then I'd be annoyed at paying that kind of money. Just wondered if it was a known fake seller on eBay that was all.

Thanks. I have gone through the post and it recommends to knock without scuff sheet. But there are other people on same thread says it's ok to knock if it is already pre fitted. Another example is video from Paul@IJC to knock it with scuff to avoid risk of damage in removing.

I only worry that I may damage if I try to remove the scuff sheet but I think I cannot properly knock the edges without removing. That is why I have posted for suggestions.

I could very well be wrong! Might have been a sticker update, just they looked a bit off! Shape looks good though, as does the TON engraving at the toe. :)

Knocking in with scuff is fine, but it depends on the quality of the scuff. If it's quite a cheap scuff, it might crack as you knock the edges, in which case I'd recommend following that. If you need a scuff removal guide, here's a link!
