Can we reuse a rubber film after using it once?

Hi Bisesh,

Yes you can reuse a rubber.  The hard part is taking it off the old bat without damaging it.  You need to be careful and work around the rubber to remove it.  Do it slowly and make sure it doesn't tear or leave bits of the sponge on the bat.  If it is a premade bat, it may be more difficult because they tend to use stronger glues on them.

Harsh,

You should smooth the surface before putting new rubber on.

Hi Faraz,

It may not fit on the blade properly.

friendship A3: 152(W)*159(H)mm

will the rubber be able to adjust a difference of 3mm??

Hi Faraz,

It should be able to stretch those few mm.  When you are gluing it on, just stretch the rubber slightly to fit the racket.
