    Off Season maintenance

    HI guys,

    My indoor practice starts in January, by then I will not have used my bat for 4 months.
    Do you think it's a good idea to oil it and knock it in before I start the indoor season?

    Thanks

    If it's a knocked in bat already I find a tiny bit of oil on the face is enough. 5 minute job then let it dry.

    u should probably put the bat in ice for a day or so before u do anything. that will help break the atoms down in the wood and it'll be easier to knock it in afterwards

    For the knocking in depends where you have kept the bat. If you have kept it in a damp wet place it should require about 30 mins ( i know soz!) or more.

    The damp would have got into it and caused the willow to expand.

    if in a dry place around 5-10 mins (not 2 bad!)

    The willow would still have expanded but not as much as a wet place.

    oil it but not too much.

    hope i help
