This comes from Combat..... Try J B WELD. One can buy this epoxy from Lowes, Home Depot, or any auto warehouse. This is a 2 part expoxy.... cost about $5.

Sand the end cap & barrel of ones bat w/ a course sand paper. Clean the End Cap & bats barrel w/ Denatures Alchol.

Allow this epoxy to set for 48 hrs... Just ask Gorilla Boy or Kevin...

I think they are still seeking a good fix. I used JBW with high hopes, did everything right & it lasted about 40 swings.

Hopefully they'll address this with a solid answer soon.

It seems to me that doing this is setting yourself up for someone to question your bat at a tourny!!... why should it be up to the consumer to try and fix a known problem with a product! You paid your hard earned $$ for it, Combat should step up and first fix the problem and exchange the bad bats fornew ones... Time to step up Combat, don't be the next Miken to just ignore a problem...

My end cap came off my Combat in Feb 07, during batting practice. Tried two different epoxy products.they did not work. Last epoxy I used is still holding , it's been a year.
Product.......Super Glue Anchor-tite waterproof Epoxy
Product #15206 [upper left hand corner of
the package]
Where........Home Depot {paint Dept]
Important...Check the front of the package, make sure it
say ''Flexible''
Cean the cap and inside barrel I used that ''purple'' pvc cleaned, after removing and remainning pieces of old glue. Apply the epoxy after mixing according to directions. I stood the bat upright , resting on the cap, and placed some weight on it. It sets in 3 to 4 hours. I gave it 24 hours.

It's still holding after one year and many rounds of practice.
The ''hard epoxies'' crack after a while, the ''flexible epoxy'' is still doing great.

Good luck
