I have a question. When choosing a bat, What is the difference between pimple and smooth rubbers? How does it affect your game in terms of accuracy, spin, and power? Also what difference does a a padded bat have over one that is not?

Hi Vikash,

The smooth rubber will usually allow you to put more spin on the ball.  The short pimple rubber will give you more control.  The short pimple rubber will also mean a flatter stroke with less margin for error.

We have a lesson on the Effects of Rubbers that will help you further with this.
