Kurt Tonkin

If I order a bat online from this website and also buy the knocking in service, would my bat I ordered be knocked in before being sent, or would I have to send it back?

Posted by Kurt Tonkin on 22/02/2019

Reply from Talent Cricket on 23/02/2019

Hi, it would be knocked in before being sent.

Samir

Hi, I have oiled my bat but I canít knock it in. If I send it to you and you oil it more would it ruin the bat ?

Posted by Samir on 12/02/2019

Reply from Talent Cricket on 12/02/2019

Hi, we would assess it first and if it has already been oiled we probably wouldn't oil it again as it would risk deadening the fibres of the willow.

Luke

Hi, Iíve got two used bats that need re-knocking in, (one hasnít been used for several years), and both have face guards on. Are you able to do your knocking in service on both of these bats, and how much would it be? Thanks.

Posted by Luke on 16/01/2019

Reply from Talent Cricket on 17/01/2019

Hi, knocking in normally costs £20 per bat but if you can get them to us and it doesn't take as long they would be closer to £15 per bat.

Hi, we just fit the clear anti scuff after knocking in, we don't have an alternative covering. We don't sell any bats that are ready knocked in.
