Every cricket bat is heavily pressed during the production and making so they will have good ping out of them. To soften the fibre on the face of the willow and get the best ping, performance, and longevity a cricket bat requires knocking (NOT PRESSING). After knocking not only it improves ping but also reduce vibration which helps to improve your game.
A modern cricket bat is very dried & that why they are thick & light in weight but the downside of dry bats, they start chipping & small cracks from face & toe and more likely to break if not oiled properly plus time to time Bat dries due to weather and playing condition, especially when we leave the bat in the car and all the moisture dries out due to excess heat.
We can put face protection sheet (extratec) to protect your bat against new ball marks, water damage, seal natural moisture off the bat
Toe guard is an essential part of a Cricket Bat. Toe guard protects against water damage plus it absorbs excessive vibration. We highly suggest NOT to use Shoe Goo as it doesn't absorb vibration and excessive vibration more likely to damage the bat from the toe or should. Read our Toe Guard vs Shoe Goo Blog
