Alois sir,

What happened is that I just regularly went to my club for playing tt !! After I had played to tool a timeout and I came to stand to sit there I found a FEVI QUICK ( its a adhesive used for wood or blade ) this thing is the strongest adhesive in our country so I just took it and checked if anything is left in it so I squezzed it hard the glue fell on my racket and within seconds I tried removing it but it had done its damage. It left my rubber damaged like say some small circular marks but they are not really felt when u touch it but u can see it though ! I. Was my new mark V M2 rubber so is it ok if I play with it as no effect on the ball due to it but its just visible is it allowed to play like that ?

Hi Ganesh,

In most situations this should be OK.  If it is not effecting the surface of the rubber it should be OK.  At a major International event you probably wouldn't get away with it but in your situation it should be fine.

Hi Ganesh,

Try to remove those circular hardened spots with Isopropyl alcohol, dilute it and apply with cotton swab and see if it works.
