Reviving a beloved oldie
« on: August 21, 2019, 12:14:43 PM »

Hi all

I know the answer to this, which is no, but I will ask it anyway.

I have a bat, it is perfect for me but it has recently started dying on my shots.  I think I have refurbed it once too many and the bat is not performing as it once was.  the middle still goes well but not like it used to and when you're slightly off it's fairly dull.  I am confident it is the bat and not my rapidly decreasing talent.

Is there any way to squeak another month of life out of it or re-press it?  I have heard that people have "pressed" bats by dripping water and knocking in (on a hard surface so it doesn't give). Does anyone know if this would work?  I only really need to get to the end of the season.

when winter comes, I'll be looking to get it copied/reproduced.

Have you checked the grip? Is it old? :) Are the gloves (finger part) worn out?

Earlier in the season this year, I had to put away my old favorite for similar reasons as yours - the shots weren't going anywhere. I ultimately had to give it a second look and found that the grip was old and slippery. I changed the grip and all was well with the bat.
