Using an Emery Board to Tweak Bases


Recommended Posts

I just watched a video about tweaking bases with an emery board. The video was posted by Electric Football Hero and his description states: "...after running the prongs along an emery board, a little trick courtesy of Coach Otto that actually seems to work! I also mention Coach Klein's technique of running Invisibase Strength cleats along sandpaper to make them even stronger!" The emery board explanation start at about the 1:25 mark.


In the video tweaking with an emery board appeared to work.

However, when I tried the emery board technique the bases really didn't perform any better. Has anyone tried this?

Enjoy the Journey. T43  🏈♾️

Yes, I have done it. Nothing new. It is a technique that has been around for a long time. An emery board and fine grit sandpaper are both in my toolbox of tweaking tools. How effective is it? Depends on what stage of the tweaking process it is used and what you are trying to achieve. Effectively it serves the purpose of removing flash from the prongs, evening out the length of the prongs and providing more gripping power to the prongs which adds strength to the overall performance of the base.
