Would they not increase in weight in a garage?

I've got some of mine in the garage (it's dry in there so I'm not overly worried about weight gain) and some in bat sleeves in a wardrobe.

I've never had an issue storing them indoors. At the end of the season I'll remove the scuff sheet and give them an oil. Come the start of winter nets or the season when they'll be used again I'll put a new scuff sheet on and away I go.

As long as you don't store them in an airing cupboard or directly next to a radiator there's nothing wrong with storing them indoors :)

Same place I store them in the summer - on the bat shelf.

You clearly don't have to hide your bats from the Mrs...! (And kids in my case!)

Nice, but my shelf (and that of many Cbf members) would have to be quite a bit bigger, and the Mrs would find out just how many I have which really wouldnt be a good idea

Ha very true, I'm by no means a collector! Implemented a rule when I started making my own that if I wasn't at least occasionally going to use a bat then I had to have a really good reason for keeping it (Cor3 for example). With the Mrs, it does help that a couple of the ones on the shelf are hers, even if she doesn't play any more. It's the bike parts I really have to keep stashed away...

Does that mean it's a big heavy one?

Surely there needs to be a "in the Bat Cave" comment on this post ;)
