Hey guys,
I've recently purchased Hurricane 3 Neo provincial (blue sponge) rubbers. They were original as I've checked with the code and it was all good. However, I noticed that the packaging seemed to be one of the older kind. So my question is whether the quality of a rubber (tackiness, speed, spin, etc.) can deteriorate with a rubber if its unused in its packaging for a long time??
Also, I've bought provincial (orange sponge) from tabletennis11.com and the quality seemed higher (great tackiness, spin!). Maybe because the model was newer?
Can anybody enlighten me? Thanks !
