Hi coaches!

Can the blade be lacqured by a lacqer for nails? Or with a lacquer for floor woods?

Hi Ardak,

Yes you can use a lacquer but you need to be careful that the rubber will still stick to the bat.

I don't recommend it any longer.  When players were using fast glue and changing their rubber a couple of times a day at tournaments then it was viable to protect the blade but now it is not that useful and a risk of the rubber not sticking and it also changes the properties of the blade.

Thank you coach!

I am going to use booster for my hurricane rubber  every 40 days. And my ordered blade's outer layer is made of limba wood. Is it still better not to use lacquer?

Firstly Booster is not legal.

I think there is no need for the lacquer.

Thank you, coach!

WOW!!! I didn' know that booster is illegal. Really very surprised! Last year I was playing at a commercial city league. Its organazer is a top player in our country. He is top 20 now. He is candidate to be master. He teached me how to use booster. He also said that many players at world level use booster. It seems he doesn't know that booster is illegal. Even though he plays at some official internatinal tournaments. Really veeery surprised!!!

But anyway, I don't play at any official tournaments. I am an amateur. But I won't use lacquer anyway.

That you very much, coach!
