[RPG] Will a silicon spray really keep the weapon healthy


Silicon spray is often touted as keeping Latex larp weapons in good condition, but how effective is it? Is it worth the money? What environments does it protect against?

Please note, I mean this sort of weapon, not a boffer weapon.

I've found they do help. Mostly they stop weapons sticking to each other and stop them picking up fluff.

Note that you can just buy a silicone spray from your local hardware store. The ones the larp weapon sellers sell aren't special in any way.

You can also use talcum powder to do the same thing, but it does tend to take the shine off the weapons (which I prefer for wood look weapons).
