Hello guys i´ve got a little question: ive got a yuki-an with wakaba rubbers, when i bought it it came already with the rubbers stuck to it, i want to know if its possible to change them and if so how can i do it, and what kind of glue do you recommend me to use.

F.Y.I: the paddle had already the rubbers glued to it when i bought it.

Hi Julian,

I think it is a good idea to change the rubber on that blade.  The blades are quite good and by changing the rubber you will improve the performance of the bat.

Firstly peel off the rubber.  Depending on the bat, it may come off easily.  If not you can use some  solvent like Mineral Turpentine to soften it and remove it.  Then let it air for a little while and glue your new rubber.  Make sure you use a Table Tennis glue to glue it on otherwise you may be wasting your money on the rubber.  You can get them from most Table Tennis suppliers.
