What do you reckon this is?
« on: October 05, 2019, 10:15:25 AM »

Picked this up off eBay for a refurb project - there was very little detail on the listing

Could be damaged under all that tape but looks a nice shape & plenty of tight grains

The toe guard looks very distinctive - does anyone know what this might be - clearly the BAS stickers have been added by the previous owner

Surely the BAS sticker on the side is back to front?

Toe guard looks L&W but the shape seems to be original BAS. May be someone asked L&W to make something similar to what they had before.

Although the toe guard does look similar I will grant you

Be fun to refurb - Ive not even got a clue on weight

So underneath the scuff and tape it was really quite badly used and abused

Some botched sanding and plenty delamination/surface cracks

I took it in to Millichamp for some advice and to see if they could help but the Aussie guy in there was brill - told me what to do and told me it wasnt as bad as it looked and within my skill set and Id be giving my money away getting them to do it...

Very impressed with his advice. So I went for it myself. Id have gone full fibreglass scuff but I didnt have one.
So its tape under helicopter scuff.

So I still dont know what it is but its 2.8 - has a decent oval handle big & looks good.

Did you get any pictures of the damage, and how it looks now under the tape?

I should have done that. Didnt think.

Lots of surface cracks on the face. The kind cheap balls do to good bats.

Its big and light could have been a bit dry - only one crack made it into edge.

comerica hours of operation

A good sand made a huge difference & the double thick edge tape worked well.

Its sound - the damage seemed from just being used a lot!!!

one of my teammates showed me this - he was a bit slow on buying it

Looks like you have found yourself a little gem Cris

looks like a L&W but I highly doubt that it is

A nice bat none the less

I would have said Laver but they sand down the toe guards to a smooth shiny finish.
