question regarding paint chips
I have 2 bats that both have developed a paint chip. It's about an eigth inch square on both bats. Both are newer bats and I was wondering if this is a sign of things to come? And has the bat developed a weak spot?...Ambush and Dirty

Very common, Mike, especially these days. Its a combination of poor prepping before the paint stage and the simple fact that the composite bats flex so much the paint doesn't want to flex with the shell. Probably nothing to worry about.

I just got a Dirty and it has a Blemish near the end... not even smooth.. poor Quality for sure for a brand new bat! IMO

I agree with MONSTA that per the bat there probably isn't anything to worry about but , for being allowed to use may be a different concern.

I found that removing the clear coat before using a new bat helps prevents this from occurring. Spider-webbing is mostly cracks in the clear coat. No clear coat, no spider web. If you properly remove the clear coat you won't have spider webbing and you will minimize or completely eliminate paint flaking.
