Hi Pingskills,

i've seen many players putting on tape around the blade and they say that they kept on the tape to keep the rubbers from getting peeled off at the edges. However my friends say that it would affect my paddle. So does the tape affect the paddle and is it safe to keep the tape on?

Hi Basel,

The players use it to protect the edges of the rubber from chipping.  Especially with the Tensor rubbers this tends to happen a lot.

It doesn't effect the performance of the rubber at all.  I would use it if you have it.  It will save you some money by getting your rubber to last longer.
