    The Simmonds.... If the ding is spot treated with water as suggested it will not affect the bats performance long term. If the bat has been properly oiled it may not work so well as the water would be repelled. I use a resin to mend dings and busted toe ends that is used in window frame repairs as it is flexible to an extent. fibreglass suggested earlier would be too brittle a type of adhesive for a long term fix.

    This damage will not affect the bat at all anyway.....

    oil it up with linseed oil on the horizontal so the surface can soak up oil overnight, then wipe off excess. once the oil has dried up see how bad the cracks are then....
