Hi Utkarsh,

Why do you want to change to Joola Express?

When you are training and improving your strokes and technique, it's important to have some consistency with your equipment so you don't have to keep making small adjustments because of new equipment. If your happy with your current rubbers, then stick with them. If there is a good reason to switch, that is OK too. Let me know why and then that might help decide if it should go on your backhand or forehand.

Hi Utkarsh,

That sounds like a reasonable reason to change.  If you are playing competitively and  it is effecting your play then change it.  If you aren't playing competitively or if the cuts are in a position that you don't usually hit the ball then you could still train with the old rubber.

There is no reason why you shouldn't use the same type of rubber again.  As Jeff said it will give you consistency so that you can learn technique rather than worrying about small changes to your rubber.

The rubber will make very little difference to your game overall but it will take your focus off what the real issue is and that is working on your skills.
