Whack Oiling & Antiscuff Sheet (Face Protection Sheet) Service
Bat oiling and extratec service will get your new bat ready to play. It is a highly recommended service for all the new bats. Most of the bats break/crack in the first few weeks because of non-prepration. Your new bat needs to be oiled (optimum moisture level is quite important for an English Willow bat) and protection tape should be applied on the face, edges and toe.
Edges and toe are usually the most vulnerable areas of a cricket bat, and are not covered under warranty by any brand. Therefore, this service is quite important to give extra support and protection to these sensitive areas.
- 2-3 coates of oil on the face and edges of the bat depending on how dry the willow is
- Drying out oil for 48-72 hours
- Removing any excess oil from the face and edges of the bat by process of sanding
- Applying extratec/face protection sheet on the face, and fibre tape on the edges and toe of the bat
This service doesn't include removing the existing sheet on the bat or cleaning.
