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 an easy and mess free application.
Fantail Bat Wax acts like a traditional Linseed oil by nourishing the willow and the bees wax 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 it's own. It not only improves the look but also the life span of your bat.
Comes in a 80ml Aluminium tin
Directions for use:
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 once the knocking in process is complete. We do this in our knocking in process.
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. I would recommend giving the bat a light sand to remove any dirt. Use a fine grit sandpaper 180-240 grit.
Q. Can I use Fantail Bat Wax on the toe of the bat instead of having a toe cover and if I do, how often should I reapply the wax?
A. Yes you can use the bat wax instead of a toe guard. I would re-apply the wax every couple of weeks to the toe of the bat. Obviously it would vary depending on the wickets you play on & the weather so just check it often and re-apply when it feels like bare wood. Make sure you don't apply the wax to the toe of the bat when it's damp as the wax will retain the unwanted moisture that can ultimately cause toe damage.
