Hello coach Alois and Jeff, there's an issue i'd like to know it's cause, which is after installing new tenergy rubbers to an old primorac blade, the new rackete worked great for the first day with great overall power and spin, then at the very next day i felt a huge decrease in both power and spin, and a weird sound appeared while hitting the ball you can hear it as if you're hitting a broken ball while actually it's not .. a friend and a coach of mine suggested that it might be caused by the lack of glue or due to not cleaning the blade surface before installing the blades while i've been struggling to know the issue. (to mention that rubbers have been installed by a manufacturer not by myself)

Hi Nadim,

It does sound  like the glue isn't on properly.

I would take the rubber off and glue them again.

Hi there. If the rubbers have been fitted by a vendor, I would try to file a complain first, especially for such luxurious rubbers as Tenergys. Once, before I started gluing my rubbers myself, I bought an entirely new set of blade + rubbers where the rubbers started to peel of after a few weeks. Turned out the vendor used a bad batch of glue, and had received numerous other complains before mine. They replaced the rubbers entirely (not just reglued them). If you take them of, depending on how the vendor glued them initially, they might shrink.
