Is it necessary to do it or not, which is better to lacquer or not. Will it cause any problem?

Hi Mukarram,

There is no real need to lacquer a racket now.

It was popular in the speed glue days when players were taking off and replying their racket very often.  However, now you don't need to take the rubber off at all, except when it is dead.

Lacquering does protect the wood but it can effect the speed, weight and feel and can make it more difficult to stick the rubber onto the wood as well.
