Lacquering a Pool Cue Handle

Lacquering a Pool Cue Handle

Hi, my name is Nate and this is my 1st post here. Here's the thing. I recently sold my Meucci but I loved the lacquered grip on it. I've recently purchased a Viking and I want to lacquer over the Irish linen. I've searched the whole Internet with no luck. So I was Hoping for a little guidance on what to use.

I build fishing rods and coat the thread wraps with a clear flex coat but have no clue if that will work or not.

Any help would be much appreciated.

    I suspect you could lacquer the linen with a result you might want - but let's underline "might." What if you don't like the feel? You're sort of screwed...

    Irish linen is usually chosen FOR its feel and tactile properties - not as a base for another texture/"feel."

    What you're suggesting is akin to intentionally buying a blue car - only to turn around and paint it red.

    The linen fibers would most certainly become less tactile when coated with lacquer. But if that is your intent, why not try it?
