I've heard it's best to varnish a bat if you have plans on replacing rubbers from time to time, is this true and if so is there a recommended type of varnish for this ?  Thanks guys, you're the best.

Hi George,

I don’t think there is a need to varnish bats now.  It was useful when we used speed glue and replaced rubbers daily.  Now, it is best to leave the wood as it is.  The varnish will alter the speed of the blade slightly and also may cause problems with sticking the rubber.
