    Yeah. I guess, if you play in a league I can see how you could get roped into playing in bad situations like that. I am sure, in those circumstances, with teammates relying on me, I would play. ...

    Interesting. Black ice. Good info. I have never seen that in NYC. But I have not been commuting by bike that long. Back when I was younger I used to ride everywhere in any temperature. But then I did...

    I've biked in 20 F (-6.66 C), so it has nothing to do with being soft. I play TT for pleasure. I value freedom of movement of my legs for footwork and arms for stroke production. I used to play...

    So, the idea is to get her to practice game skills without counting points and without actually playing games.

    I think you turned what I said upside down. When speed glue was banned, boosting was banned as well. When speed glue was allowed, most people used speed glue and did not use booster oils. Speed...

    When boosting was banned, was when speed glue was banned (2008). Before boosting was banned, people did not boost, they used speed glue. Is that what you meant? Back in the days of speed glue?

    Why do you ask these ridiculous questions. If the glue works, IT WORKS. It makes no difference what blade.
  10. It seems you miss things or something or need...

    It seems you miss things or something or need them repeated several times. But I definitely did answer this question already so I am just showing the answer in a quote.

    I think I have said this before. But I am not sure you understand what I am saying.

    There are people here who are saying “you have to seal” a specific blade to protect from splintering, and then...

    Yeah. I am sorry if it is the case that you are playing in conditions that are not heated and where you need to wear a winter coat to play. But I just would not want to play in those conditions. ...

    Butterfly blades are not sealed. But their finishing quality is very good and, for splintering, they usually don't need a layer of sealant. However, the water from the glue will still effect the...

    Where are you playing? Even if it is cold outside, isn't it a normal temperature indoors? Are you playing outdoors? Or do they just not heat the place you play so it is cold?

    Yeah. That sounds like the NCT coating. I do know people who had blades with that surface where their rubbers kept coming off. I was not a fan. And Stiga does seem to come up with a lot of half...
  17. Yeah. I don't get that either. Also, I...

    Yeah. I don't get that either.

    Also, I don't like water based sealers. I like the old fashioned stuff. With a water based sealer, you are still starting out by putting water on the blade. ...

    No, but it presents a part of the reasoning behind sealing: protecting the wood from unwanted water damage.

    The thick hardened coating that Stiga calls NCT will indeed make the blade harder because of the particular substance they use. And Stiga indeed presents things like their NCT coating with marketing...

    The thing is, some blades do come with a sealant and some don't.

    So, the reason is that they don't choose to seal all their blades.

    Avalox BT550 is a sealed blade. Stiga Rosewood V with...

    On the bottle it says: "Varnish for Blade Sealing".

    A few pieces of information:

    1) Long 5 and W968 have a Limba top ply. Limba is a wood that is a little delicate and it is easy to tear the grain of the wood.

    The kicker was how you got them to pay for chicken dinner and beerz when they thought they could challenge you to a doubles duel with Abe as your #2.

    Don't. Leave them. Let them stay to give your blade character. Then people will be able to see that you play hard and use your equipment. Bangs, Dings, Sweat sinking into the wood, those are...
