Hi All,
I have a 1980's Slazenger English willow cricket bat and would like to apply a new coat of poly armour to the bat. Does anyone know what Poly Armour is exactly? If so, where can I get it as I am sending this call for assistance from down under Oz.

Hi mate,

Firstly, why do you want to apply poly armour to your bat if you don't know what it is? Secondly, I wouldn't put that stuff on my bat if I were you. Best to apply linseed oil to it imo.
