I think my thumb might be causing the rubber to loosen

Is it a problematic grip in any way performance wise?

Can I just add some glue between the rubber and the sponge in that spot? That the rubber is a bit worn out in a spot I should never hit the ball doesn't really bother me

Hi Johan,

The rubber does do this sometimes especially if you are gripping hard on the rubber.  Perhaps you can think about having a more relaxed grip with the thumb.

The rubber lifting won’t effect the performance of the bat.  You can try putting a touch of glue under the rubber and then clamping it down or applying pressure for a while.  It will sometimes hold for a little while but it would be hard to keep it permanently like that.
