Bubbles in the rubber

Hi there coach, I recently purchased a DONIC Baracuda for my backhand and had it glued. Before it was glued, the rubber surface looked perfectly normal and flat, but as soon as it was glued, I noticed that the rubber surface had "bumpy" surface. Is this because of how the rubber was glued? Will this affect my game? If I were to reglue it, how long should I wait before I could remove the rubber and reglue it again? I bought the rubber one week ago, thanks.

Hi Wayne,

The bubbles may be wet glue.  It may settle down after a while.  If it doesn't you may have to  take the rubber off and reglue it.  Just make sure the glue is quite dry before you stick it on.

thanks coach, but can I reglue the rubber NOW or should I wait for a certain amount of time before I could peel the rubber off? By the way, I got the rubber just a week ago, thanks
