I was doing ma Lin serve on my table then I hit it on my table, I dont notice till 10minutes on the side of my racket there is a bump.  Should I take the edge tape off? Because I spent over £100 on the bat and the a small part of the rubber has lifted.

Hi Yiannis,

Don't worry too much.  This will not effect the performance of the racket.  It is probably best to leave the edge tape on for now.  If you lift it off it may do more damage at this stage.  Press the rubber down firmly.

Thanks and is wood putty something to consider?

Yes you can use that if the dent becomes too big.  The ball won't hit that area too much and if it does it probably wouldn't be a good shot anyway... so the wood putty will be fine.
