Taking Care of Your Table Tennis Rubber

eppfTable tennis rubber is one of the biggest investments players make in the sport. A new sheet of rubber, right out of the package, is beautiful and clean and fresh. As soon as you play with it – in no time at all – dirt, oil, dust, grime, nicks, and dead spots find their way onto your originally pristine rubber. Without proper cleaning and care, your rubber will get old quickly. So it is a good idea, both performance-wise and budgetwise, to do everything you can to prolong the life of your rubber.

Seth Pech Tells Why He Plays with Tibhar’s Q1 XD Rubber

Seth-Pech_mugAbout a month ago I picked up two sheets of Q1 XD from Tibhar to try them out. I had played with the Q1 original sheets before and the sponge was too soft for me. When I played with XD, which has a harder sponge, I was really impressed with the consistency of the trajectory that the ball enters and exits the rubber. I was also impressed with the amount of spin the rubber generates, even though it doesn’t look or feel grippy.
