I have question and hope that you can help: I bought some expensive new rubber for my bat a few weeks ago but I don't like the blade/rubber combination. Since the rubber only has a few hours on it, I'd like to try it on another blade versus buying some more. Did I mention that it was expensive? :-) A friend of mine, who is an advanced player, told me that, after I peel the rubber away from the old blade, I have to rub the old glue off of the sponge before re-gluing the rubber to a new blade. This has to be done very carefully so that the sponge isn't damage. What a pain! I managed one rubber but still slightly damaged the sponge.
My question is this: Is removing the glue from the sponge prior to re-using the rubber really necessary? Am I wasting my time and should just go get new rubber?
Thank you in advance.
If it is only one layer of glue I wouldn't worry about it.
If you have glued a rubber several times then I think it is worth taking the glue of the back.
As you found out, it is a pain and the rubbers are expensive so if you damage them... you will not be happy...
