Weight reduction at toe area
« on: October 05, 2018, 11:10:31 AM »

Hi
Some of you might have read my new custom robinson sports cricket bat thread.
The bat taps very well and ball does pings great but i am facing an issue of bottom heavy bat and it is effecting the overall feel.
Any ideas on how to reduce some weight at the toe area without compromising too much.
I have added a counter balance now to see if it helps but i want a proepr solution fkr the jssue.
I dont have access to pod shaver but sand papers and sanding machine can be acquired if needed.

Travisher will do the trick. Sandpaper wouldnt be a good pick, if youre fixed on using it a chissel first then paper would be better

If possible use a sander and finish with fine sand paper sand from  toe to bottom  of spine following grains if not possible use 240 grit it will do it it just takes longer.

cant find a travisher here in australia, chissel seems like way to go but again if i am not experienced enough i might damage the bat.
I have asked couple of people and they are asking 130 dollars to just reduce some weight of the toe which seems a rip off to me tbh.

Given it is an indian bat, I doubt drying it out further will be a good bet.

Definitely speak to Hoover, I have an inkling he would be able to help you...

Humm Perth is a fraction more than just up the road from Adelaide!

the reason i wanna try this myself is that someone in sydney recently destroyed my 800 dollars GN signature.
I sent that for weight reduction, although the weight is reduced but bottom 4 inches of the bat are absolutely dead now.
Vibrates like crazy there. if i can either find a solution to stop that from happening then i am better off with my signature but i reckon there is nothing that can be done to revive the bottom 4 inches on the signature.

sell it and buy a bat that suits you. No point in ruining or altering a fine bat just because it doesn't suit you.
