Service Details

    • We knock in all cricket bats from New Balance to MRF. Allow at least 3-5 working days for the knocking in process to be completed.

      Give your new cricket bat the best start to life with a Fantail knocking in service We a comprehensive knocking in service combining hand knocking with our state of the art Smart Knocking in Machine.

      The Fantail Knocking in process is the choice of many first-class & international cricketers

    • Please Note: There is no warranty on non Fantail branded bats that have been knocked in by us

Process

We apply a coat of linseed oil. Linseed oil helps the cricket bat to retain its own moisture and reduces the rate of cracking due to allowing the fibres to stretch rather than crack.

The knocking process starts with the edges and toe of the bat we do this by hand using a wooden mallet as these are the weakest and most vulnerable areas of the bat.

It then moves on to our Smart Knock knocking in machine. Which does all that a human can do but better as it has complete control of each strike with placement and power. It works its way slowly up and down the blade while moving across the blade simultaneously. We slowly increase the knocking power to build the bat up to a level where it is ready to be used in a net session.

We then move onto applying any optional extras you've ordered. Once your bat has been knocked in it then needs to be worked in over a few net sessions with an old ball before you use it in a game
