GRAY-NICOLLS Bat Preparation & Care
It is important your GRAY-NICOLLS Cricket Bat is thoroughly prepared before being used.
Our cricket bats can be classified by the following terms:
These are Natural finished bats that don't have Extratec, Bladetec or Fibretec Facing. They also are required to be hand knocked in, with GRAY-NICOLLS recommending at least six hours of knocking in.
These GRAY-NICOLLS cricket bats have been prepared with Extratec featuring on the face, however they still require 1-2 hours of hand knocking in with a Bat Mallet.
This technology is one of GRAY-NICOLLS' newest innovations with bats fully ready to be used that are labelled with "Play Now". These have been pre-prepared with pressing, oiling and have been hand knocked in. The bats also feature Shoe Goo and Extratec.
Cricket Bats should be oiled yearly using GRAY-NICOLLS' Cricket Bat Oil and an old rag.
