Is this worth repairing?
« on: April 04, 2019, 10:00:39 PM »

An expensive bat from BDM with a great middle. However, Can this be repaired or worth repairing?
Very difficult to find someone good to repair in the USA.

In my opinion no it cant, you could spend the money getting it repaired that would need to include a rehandle and clean up so most likely approx 50-60 and no guarantee it will last at all. Time to look for a new bat I think mate

Looks like a crack running up to the shoulder as well as handle broken, so looks fairly terminal. Shame, bdm are nice bats and can last a long time.

Looks a stunning bit of willow that
Real shame, but Id be reluctant to repair that and have it go again in the middle of a game

Its gonna need a lot of dowels to hold that together
