Can you re-surface a stiga pre-made bat? Or will trying to tear off the old rubber ruin the blade?

Hi Paul,

It usually works pretty well.  Some of the Stiga premade bats have reasonable blades.  Even if the rubber doesn't come off cleanly, you can then use some solvent to remove the rest of the sponge without damaging the blade.

Just changing the rubber on it.  You could re-rubber it if the current rubber has lost its grip.

Hi Atharva,

You can change the rubber of a pre made bat but it is harder than a custom bat as the rubber is usually stuck on to the blade very strongly. Often the rubber will break apart and you'll need some solvent to remove the remains from the blade.

With a custom made bat, it gets stuck on with table tennis glue and hence it is much easier to replace the rubber.
