Cricket bats are expensive things, so it is in every batsman's interest to keep their bat going for as long as possible. When you first get your bat, it is a very good idea to also get some linseed oil, which you rub onto the bat to strengthen it. This firms the wood and makes it less likely that it will get damaged, especially with prolonged use. However, even the best wood and the best oil will still leave the bat exposed to the rigours of the contact of bat on ball, which is where this fibreglass based tape comes in. Upfront is a quality manufacturer of cricket products, and their products are also well priced. This 40 metre roll of tape is available for a ... Read the complete review

I have been a big fan of cricket since I was a kid. In fact as I write this review, the cricket world cup is on in the background. I love watching the game and I love playing the game. Growing up I had my fair share of cheap cricket bats that always seemed to snap after a big meaty shot. When I was the age of 12 my next door neighbour gave me his cricket bat. He played at a semi professional level and he had some stunning cricket bats. The one he gave me was one that was a little old and the edges were a little tatty. The bat was covered in tape to protect him from getting edges, however it was simply to old for his needs and he was no longer using it anymore, so . Read the complete review

Cricket bats are like your children, even though you might have more than one you always have a favourite, they should be all the same but for some reason one has a better feel than others. Therefore, batsmen are a strange creature in which they will do anything to keep using a bat long after its past its best and one of the problems along with this use is that the bat itself gets damaged. Cricket bats are made of willow and after extensive use will start to disintegrate and the more frayed a bat becomes the worst a bat will perform. So any decent shots will get a few less runs for each stroke and a misstimed shot might go straight to the fielder rather than ... Read the complete review

Upfront bat edge fibreglass tape is a completely necessary batting accessories for any cricket player who places value on his/her bat. It can be used to fix your bat, or to prevent damage. I purchased a roll of one inch wide, 40 meter long tape from a sports specialist store on the high street. The cost was £3.99, which is pretty reasonable. However, since then I have noticed that you can buy the same product for £2.50 on line. Even better, but I am not too concerned about a couple of pounds. The resaon I purchased the tape was due to a massive crack appearing down the inside edge of my bat. To apply the tape, simply cut off the desired amount and ... Read the complete review

Repairing and preventing cracks and damage to your cricket bat is essential to the way it performs. The fibreglass tape is a great way to patch up your cricket bat. It consists of a roll of tape lined with fibreglass strands to strengthen the bat and therefore your bat too. It works by just simply taping around the bat where a crack is developing or has developed. Go around it a few times to make it strong and unlikely to unstick itself form the bat. This should keep the willow compact and prevent the damage form opening up and worsening before you get proper attnetion to it. The tape can also be used as a preventative by taping the face on vulnerable parts e.g. the toe, Read the complete review
