Hi, i'm really enjoying your works you've done for rookies like me. I recently spoiled my rubber, so i went to some sporting goods dealers but i couldn't tell whether what they are showing are original or not. For your information, I am living in Nigeria. I don't want to be tricked when i pay the premium price. For example, they showed me Butterfly Sriver FX rubber. SO PLEASE advise me how can i tell the difference.

Hi Jimmy,

I don't know of illegal copies of rubber that are produced.  It is difficult to copy the technology.  Just check that the rubber comes in a sealed packet and that the markings on the rubber are the same as they should be.  You can check on the website what the markings on a rubber should be.

Thank you for your advice. It is probably easy for experienced players to tell the difference but i'm a rookie as i mentioned earlier. So Can you give me little more tips for choosing good quality rubber? For example, how should it be felt when i touch the rubber or how should it look like? I'll be very happy if you can also spare your expertise on which rubber is good for a penholder like me.
