    Hardbat blade

    I got an old hardbat from my grandad. From around the 50-60s. If I would take away the old hardbat rubbers, and put on some old professional rubbers i have laying around, could i perhaps get a decent paddle. Are old hardbat blades good quality?

    first take the old rubbers off and hold a straight-edge over the blade. They are often warped and bend.
    If it is straight - why not ๐Ÿ˜

    The blade is perfectly flat, no chipping on the edges, and the lacquer is great. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜

    It may be a collector's item. Take photos of it. Post on the forum. Let's see what you have.

    There is a possibility that it is worth more how it is than it will be if you mess with it.

    Rubbers age even when they are not in use. So bear in mind that those โ€œold professional rubbersโ€ you have may not be usable.

    Oh man. It is in great shape. Donโ€™t do anything to it. Keep it how it is.

    Back then they made rubbers of all kinds of colors.

    Yessir ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘, I have another old lion blade where the rubbers are already off because they were completely wrecked, I'll just use that one ๐Ÿ˜
