Facings help protect and prolong the life of your cricket bat by adding a barrier to protect the blade from damage, moisture and dirt. We recommend facings for all cricket bats.
A light coat of linseed oil is applied before each facing is applied.
The clear anti-scuff facing with fibre edges is recommended for all bats as it offers a better protective layer than the fibre face.
The fibre facing is a slightly lighter and thinner option which is why you'll notice a lot of professional cricketers use them.
PLEASE FOLLOW THESE STEPS:
Place your order online or pop in-store for the services and repairs you require (please get in touch if you need any assistance). If you are based outside of NZ, please get a shipping quote before placing your order. Please don't send your bat/s in unless you've placed an order.
Send your bat into our workshop from anywhere around the world (Fantail doesn't organise or pay for this) with your order number and name attached. This is vital to connect your bat/s with your order. Please don't send your bat cover; it may not be returned.
Your bat will join the queue as soon as it arrives. You won't be notified when your bat arrives.
Once complete, your bat/s will be couriered to the address given in your order details (the return shipping is calculated and paid for in the checkout of our website). You will be sent an email with the tracking details upon dispatch, or we will let you know that it is ready for pick up.
