Got this last week for 30 shipped and took it to the nets. Felt great straight away. Ball zings off the middle, long sweet spot. Oval handle at the bottom, bonus. I personally love the profile as well - straight longish swell, duck bill toe.





I want to just tidy it up and perform general maintainance. Done quite a bit of diy, but no bat refurbs, so your tips appreciated.

List of stuff I want to do:
-Remove the panther sticker on the back. Maybe all the stickers.
My wife's turbo hair dryer should do the trick.
-Remove sticker and glue and general dirt and grime.
What do you suggest? meth spirits?
-Sand up scuffed edges.
-Linseed oil it.
-Put on a scuff sheet.
There's a zillion on ebay, any brands to recommend? How long after oiling?

If you just remove the panther sticker then you can maybe find a similar one as part of another set on eBay. Saving or replacing stickers is always the hardest part of returning any classics.

Was a bit of a pain removing the glue that decided to just take the Panther sticker off the back, and leave the others.
