Just curious if anyone has a good system for weatherproofing sticks or protecting them so that they don't get scratched up and the paint doesn't come off so easily. 

​I'm referring to wooden sticks, rather than the new plastic versions which I'm not a big fan of . I've tried a couple of things in the past but some sprays leave a shiny sheen overthem that doesn't look great in front of camera. 

​Just trying to preserve my board and sticks so they don't look so shabby after a few months of use!

Have you tried helicopter tape? It's made for helicopter blades but people use it for protecting bike frames. It will be a devil to apply to sticks but you should be able to manage it with some care. I don't know about sheen - maybe try a small piece and see what you think. Eg http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Extra-Clear-Helicopter-Bike-Frame-Clear-Protection-Vinyl-Tape-all-sizes-/360383674689
