How do you identify what type of rubber you have on your bat?

Another question : Is long pimple or short pimple rubber better?

Thank you,

Hi Umar,

Take a look at the name at the bottom of the rubber.  All the approved rubbers will have this and also have an ITTF logo on the bottom.

There isn't a better or worse with short and long pimple.  They do two different things so it depends on what you are after.

Take a look at our tutorial on the Effects of Rubbers for some more help on this.

My rubber has an ITTF logo but it does not state the type of rubber. Is there a way to test what rubber it is?

It will have a name and a number on it as well.
