That Siren is a steal. More grains than some ( so called) higher grades.

Here are some pics. As you can see there are 5/6 grains but faded.
It is small size basically Harrow but big edges and full width. I prefer light bats but is not possible to get in this weight in SH unless you spend top dollar that I won't.
Weight is 2:7.5 with 2 grips. Me being 5'8" I am comfortable using Harrow and SH as long as it feels light in hands.

Looks nice!  I'm sure a few coats of oil on the face would bring some grains out, but it may also darken a few of those other imperfections.
If you have to wreck the stickers to get the face sheet off, you might lose more than you gain looks wise.

How possible is it to use a craft knife to cut the anti-scuff around the stickers and then remove the anti-scuff while keeping the stickers?
I would have thought that was fairly simple?

I will keep scuff on. Oiled back of it last night now knocking it in. Bat feels good in hands that's it not bother about looks in this particular one.


It's easy to take scuff off without ruining stickers by cutting just below as you said  then again apply new scuff after oil.

Its even easier just to heat and carefully peel back the sticker thats over the scuff, its only 5cm x6cm or so and sticks back down fine if you do it right away.

What about this one...

Just in case anyone wanted to know, this pings as well as anything I've had. Better than my Aldred which was supposed to be my number 1 and as good as my old Aussie GN I would say, absolute bargain!
