Will the Boleadoras or "Bolos" Damage the Stage?

We take great precautions to ensure that the stage or stage cover is kept from unusual damage. Our bolos are made of teflon, a material that is easier on stages than old bolos. When considering the impact it will have on a stage, you can compare it with standard tap dancing shoes. A plywood or equivalent can be used to dance with the bolos should it be necessary.
