Weight loss mystery
« on: April 22, 2019, 12:37:57 PM »

I had a bat re handled at the end of last season . I didnt pick it up from the bat maker until about 4 months later - so I presume it had been left in the bat makers shed . The new handle was slightly thicker but the dead weight of the bat had gone down by more than an ounce . It also picked up much lighter. Has the bat merely lost weight from drying out ? If so what can be done to get it to its original weight ? The blade itself feels very dry . Ideas much appreciated !

It is going to rain next week so put the bat in a garage. Then oil it.

To he honest older bats do tend to loose weight.

To increase deadweight Put the bat somewhere cold

Handles all weigh different weights as well so its something to factor in.
