I was wondering are you allowed to have different thickness rubbers on different sides of the blades. For example i was thinking about having a 2.0 on my forehand (DHS hurricane 3) and a 1.5/1.2 (Friendship 729 FX Super Soft) on my BH for the RPB. Is this legal in TT rules? And if so Is it a good Idea to do so?

Also do you have any videos on how to improve RPB?

Hi Lelouch,

There is no regulation on uniformity of rubbers on both sides so you can choose different rubbers completely if you like.

A lot of players use different rubbers are their forehand and backhand have different abilities.

We do have a simple video on improving your RPB.  Take a look at the tutorial on Penhold Techniques for Table Tennis.  I think this will help you.
