    Shouldn't really need any sort of fixing other than cosmetic. The bat should play as normal.
    The English South African.

    Batting is simple (3W's):
    Watch it
    Wait for it
    WHACK IT!

    Polyfiller? I really have no idea.. I would even bother touching it in my opinion.. Someone else might have tried to repair something like this before, but in the past, I'd have left it.

    Yeah I guess I'll leave it if it's not going to break the bat, just annoyed because its still new!

    Bat Doctor

    I suppose its not relevant to you but I saw a news piece the other day about a guy who they call the 'Bat Doctor' based in Karachi. When no one can repair a bat, they take it to him and he will do his magic. He is known to have repaired bats for international stars as well as local people.

    you could fill it with sawdust/wood filler/glue, let it dry and sand it down and tape over it, but there's no real point, it's not going to affect performance.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
