Hi, all

Im a bit new to this forum and wanted to asked the pros here on my problems. So i have this DHS preassembled paddle at home which is decent which gives enough spin and control however, i started playing with it one day during summer and after playing i noticed that the rubber is starting to peel off the orange sponge a bit. How can i fix this so that the rubber can restick to the sponge or how can i prevent this from happening?

Welcome to the forum Shiro, hope you like everything you find here :)

I am not to sure on this answer, however I think Super Glue should do the job. Perhaps you caught your bat on the side of the table to cause a slight tear/opener in the rubber top sheet and sponge.

Premade? Check.

Rubber separating from the sponge? Check.

Normal. This happens with crappy premade. You can try every bond on earth, and some will work for a spell, but soon enough, that bat will start to fall apart, usually the topsheet separates and curls up. Nothing you can do to stop it, that is going to happen.

Another key word I failed to catch right away was summer.

Hot summer warps these pre-made rubbers really bad.

I didn't hit the table at all with this rubber. I was playing in the summer with this racket and after i was done i looked at the rubber and saw it was starting to peel off the sponge randomly.

Der_Echte is right here Shrio, your bat is probably very cheaply made and will fall apart. Lots of beginner bats I have when I'm coaching after around 6 to 12 months begin to fall apart just through wear and tear really. I think investing into a half decent table tennis bat will do the trick, it will improve your game greatly to I am sure! :)

I will thinking about making my own custom bat thought but for now im trying to make my preassembled bat last as long as possible until i do so.
