    Dhs w968/ hurricane long 5 splintering issues

    I've seen in some reviews written that dhs long 5 blades have splintering issues. Is it so or not? If it is, why? Any solutions on this problem please.

    Always look for the problem with the glue. High adhesion adhesives are bad in every way.

    I had mine lacquered as advised by my vendor. No splintering issue thus far even after numerous changes of rubber.

    DHS No.15 is good, I use Haifu water based glue. More difficult work, you have to work with it quickly, it is sparse and dries quickly. Not everyone can work with it. Otherwise, it has excellent properties, is very elastic, and is well removed from the blade and rubber.

    Tbh I do not understand the process of lacquering. Could you explain it of how it is done? What products are involved in doing it and where can I get those?

    May I know why? If so do you mean I should just be careful on gluing and to choose wisely on what glue to use.

    Varnishing changes hardness.
    This solution came with the wrong adhesives.
    That's right, wise glue selection is the best solution !!!

    Alright. And using dhs aquatic glue 15 is safe right? in order to avoid splinters

    I use water based Joola varnish on my Long 5. That‘s a very mild form of protecting the top layer of the blade. Never had any issues.

    I second that !
    Of course if one gets a varnish spray can and sprays several layers on a blade it might change the characteristics of it.
    Properly done is to take some acrylic lacquer on a damp cloth and gently rub it onto the surfaces of the blade. Little goes a long way..
    This will seal the blade and there is no noticeable change.
    p.s. I use revolution no3. I find DHS No.15 makes too strong a bond

    Do you seal your blade as well?

    Is it okay to use without sealing too? which lacquer do you suggest using on long V to seal?

    I think every blade can splinter if you don't seal it if the glue holds too strong. Seal your blade and it Should be fine, a layer of poly that you wipe off after letting it sink in for two minutes should do the job and not alter the blade too much.

    See PingShnday.com

    See PingSunday.com. A very thin layer of varnish has an imperceptible effect on hardness. A thick layer will make the blade feel harder. The ML5 has a limba wood outer layer, which is a softer wood.

    No, I just use the Joola varnish. That's enough.
