Should I put a toe guard on + What do you have?

Post by Leo on Thu Jan 10, 2008 12:30 am

It seems hard to put on a toe guard and they dont seem to stick for very long!

You could also just apply a few coats of a decent PVA glue. Does the same thing and is easy to apply, and cheap!

Stand teh bat on its handle and sqeeze some glue out on the toe, spread it round the toe and it will find it own level following the shape of the toe.

Apply 3 or 4 thinner coats rather that a couple of thick ones though. Letting it dry between applications.

It will wear off, but you can just reapply as needed....

Thin coat of epoxy resin does the trick for me...

Looks like a clear toe guard.
