Salix bat repair, restoration & remodelling
As our bat making is totally in-house, so our repairs have always been: our makers are also expert repairers and restorers. We have always completed essential repairs and refurbishments both in and out of warranty for non-Salix bats as well as our own. For more details and pricing on repair and refurbishment, whether annual service, repair or reworking, please email and we will send you our latest price list.
All bat repairs completed by Salix benefit from experienced and individual assessment, repair work and finishing. Our aim is to prolong and enhance the life of any bat and to improve its feel wherever necessary and/or possible. We assess each bat carefully to ensure that the right work is carried out and that the bat has a good prognosis. We believe in repairing bats, but we would never advise spending money on a bat unless we consider it worthwhile.
Our full refurbishments have always been especially successful as the effect of a full Salix repair, sand and finish results in the bat returning closest to its original state (better sometimes if updated labels applied). Our finish is second to none and we take the same pride in our repairs as in our bat making.
During full refurbishment, bats will naturally and necessarily lose weight through the various sanding processes to refinish the bat as new, therefore minor weight reductions can normally be incorporated into this, especially with our own bats.
For more extensive customising, we offer a full ‘remodelling’ service which effectively re-makes a bat to tailor it to you, or to adjust should your game or requirements change. A misjudged purchase, or hand-me-down bat can be immeasurably improved through a combination of re-profiling, repressing, rebalancing and reworking a handle, getting the full Salix treatment to bring out the very best in the blade.
If you would like to bring in a bat needing attention, then please just call or email to let us know when to expect you. If too far away then please feel free to send the bat(s) in to us with a copy of our Salix Bat Return Form (pdf) and we will be in contact on receipt.
