Do players ever put different rubbers on different sides and even spin the bat in between shots, say to get spin one side and more power on the other? JD

Hi John,

Yes they often put different rubbers on different sides in line with the strengths and weaknesses of each side.

A player with a strong topsides on the forehand may play with a fast spin rubber on that side but if they have a weaker defensive backhand then they will use a slower rubber on the backhand.

Initially I think it is good to start with something very simple on both sides till you get a feel for what your game style is and learn some basic strokes.
