Maybe you’ve already covered this somewhere, but I’m wondering about paddle maintenance— do you use any special cleaner, and is it true you should replace the rubbers twice a year? Any other tips?
I tend to use just water to wipe the rubber on the paddle. You can use the rubber cleaners but I don't think they are very useful.
As far as caching rubbers this depends on how often you play. We tend to recommend 80 to 100 hours of use but this depends not he types of strokes that you play as well. If you are a strong topspin player this tends to wear out the rubber quicker than if you are a more controlled player.
The other thing that we recommend with rubber is to make sure that you don't leave the rubber in direct sunlight as this will effect the properties of the rubber.
To check if your rubber is still good, rub your finger across the rubber and see if it still has grip on it.
