Fantail Bat Wax is the best way to maintain the look and life of your cricket bat.
Fantail Bat Wax is basically linseed oil in a solid-state which both seals and nourishes your cricket bat in a mess-free and straightforward application.
Fantail Bat Wax acts like a traditional Linseed oil by nourishing the willow, and the beeswax offers a protective coat by sealing the grain from any excess moisture. This product also gives the bat a shine which just linseed oil can't achieve on its own. It improves not only the look but also the life span of your bat. It is recommended for use on all the exposed timber of your bat & is an excellent option if you're not a fan of facings.
Comes in an 80ml Aluminium tin.
Contains raw linseed oil and beeswax
PACKAGING: Recyclable Aluminium Tin
DIRECTIONS: Make sure the bat is clean of dirt & dust. Using your finger, apply a small amount of wax to the back edges and face of your bat. Try to avoid the stickers & facing. Approximately 1 teaspoon of wax should cover the bat. Leave the bat for 30 minutes and then buff with a lint-free cloth.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q. For a new bat, would I still use Raw Linseed Oil to oil the bat first, before knocking in, or can the Bat Wax replace the Linseed Oil?
A. We recommend you use raw linseed oil for the initial knocking in stages and then apply a coat of bat wax to all the exposed timber once the knocking in process is complete.
Q. How long would you say a tin of bat wax would last?
A. You would get between 15-20 coats out of a tin so it would last a few seasons
Q. Would you recommend a brief sanding down the bat before applying the Bat Wax to finish it off?
A. Yes, we'd recommend giving the bat a light sand to remove any dirt. Use a fine-grit sandpaper 180-240 grit.
Q. Can I use bat wax under stickers, facings or tape?
A. No, these items will not adhere correctly over the wax. The wax is designed to be applied to exposed timber only.
