How to Maintain a Hockey Stick?
While playing hockey game whether at practise or match, hockey sticks can hit on each other or against a hard surface and due to this the surface colour may chip, which means that the mere chip or colour crack does not affect the stick play or compromise its performance and it is merely a cosmetic one which does not mean that the stick cannot be used for playing.
Warranty does not cover for minor chips/cracks, but for manufacturing defects.
How to do Knocking and Protection:
- Bats comes oiled, pre-knocked and rolled from factory
- However, you should try to do these steps
- Apply minimum of 1 coat of oil and leave it (horizontally) overnight
- When it dries out you can repeat the same process again (maximum 3 coats), depending upon how soft you want your willow to be
- Kindly note: too much of oil will make the willow too soft
- knock-in the edges, using heavy bat mallet, and toe for at least 3-4 hours
- First use it in the nets with old balls, for at least a couple of sessions, before playing into a match
- Make sure the bat doesn’t get any seem marks when you are playing against a leather ball. If it does go back to the knocking and throw downs stage
- This process can be painful and time consuming, but it helps bats last longer and you can get the best out of your bat
- Once the bat has been knocked in and ready to play, apply anti-scuff sheet on the face of the bat. It saves bat from absorbing extra moisture during wet conditions and saves edges as well and is economical to do
For protection use Anti scuff sheet.
Surface Cracks on Bats
While playing with the bat there will be always some small cracks will come after a period of use. When the bat is not properly prepared, ie not properly knocked or may be due to use of low quality or hard cricket balls. All bats will show surface cracks and with the proper knocking the cracks can be delayed.
Our most of the bats come with Toe Gard fitted which will help to minimize the cracks and keep protection.
Our recommendation is that bats Bats should be Knocked before using them with hard balls. The warranty does not include issues or damage to the edges. toe cracks or any handle breakages as that can be caused due to playing with inappropriate hard balls, storing bats in the car boots as that can dry willow or hitting the ground while running between the wickets Any damage caused due to usage associated is not included as it is not a manufacturing defect.
