View Full Version : My Table tennis racket

05-07-2013, 05:27 PM
Hello i bought a table tennis racket extra offensive Yasaka 3-4 years ago. Now i started playing with my friends in school. I was playing in club but now i am not. I used to spin the ball very good. Now i can NOT spin the ball like i do before. Is it about my racket? i really don't know. Can table tennis racket lose spin ability? when i touch my racket it is so slippery. I will be thankful if you reply me. Thanks

The problem is your racket's rubbers. They're old. In such time rubbers loose their tackiness, spin and other things. If you plan to go back and play in a club, I recommend you to get a new, good racket, or change your rubbers if the blade is still in good shape. If you're going to play only in school, I recommend to buy another racket.

Most likely your rubbers are dead, the blade itself should be fine. Over time your rubber will lose tack or grip if you don't cover it and clean it after every use. It will probably make it worse if you leave your racket in your car. Just buy new rubber and you should be fine.

Yep, these guys have it right, if the rubbers are slippery, they are slippery which means they have lost the ability to grab the ball. Just get new rubbers.

Did you get the blade with the rubbers on it? If you did, you might want to get a new setup where the blade and the rubbers come separately. But, you don't need to. You can just get new rubbers, take the old rubbers off, and glue the new rubbers on and cut them to fit the blade.

your blade should be ok but new rubbers will do the trick.
