Cricket bats are crafted from English willow which is softwood. At some stage in a cricket bats life because of this softwood; it will get damaged due to the repeated impact from cricket balls.
Because of our experience making cricket bats, we know precisely how they should work & when they get damaged, we are well equipped to make the necessary repairs needed to get it back to making runs.

CRICKET BAT WEIGHT REDUCTION

MAJOR TOE REPAIR
Major toe repairs are large cracks in the toe or even chunks that have broken off the bat upon impact. Make sure you keep any bits that fall off your bat!
More often than not, the hitting area & lower part of the back of the bat need to be sanded, which results in sticker & facing/scuff sheet removal. Price $60 - 7 to 10-day turnaround or $80 - 3 to 5-day turnaround for urgent repairs.
MINOR TOE REPAIR
Minor toe repairs are where small cracks are appearing, or some surface willow is starting to lift from the surface of the bat. Price $45 - 7 to 10-day turnaround or $65 - 3 to 5-day turnaround for urgent repairs.
CRICKET BAT FACE & EDGE GLUE DOWN & CLEAN UP
If the surface of your cricket bat is majorly cracking or lifting away from the rest of the cricket bat, don't panic. It's called de-lamination of the pressed willow.
We fix this by glueing the willow back down to the rest of the bat. Your bat will continue to perform just like it used to before the repair. Price $80 - 7 to 10-day turnaround or $110 - 3 to 5-day turnaround for urgent repairs.
