      strange cut

      Hi everyone, I just bought a new Tibhar evolution El s max black from a retailler and I notice something strange : the down side of the rubber is cut shorter than "regular" ones.
      Is this a fake rubber or just a defect from the manufacturer ? Thanks for your reply Click image for larger version.

      Just to clarify - It's not cut shorter.

      It just looks like whoever was glueing it together, didn't get it perfect at the bottom.

      Don't worry about it though - It'll be absolutely fine

      It is not this, the rubber itself is "shorter" (I didn't mean the space between the rubber and the handle), the writting is next to the edge of the rubber (there is usually more space between the letters and the edge of the rubber).
      Do you see it ?

      The OP is speaking about a Production problem, not a glue-job one.

      I have seen this before, likely bad QC,
      Maybe Tibhar machine cut it too short
      but again, only the retailer can tell if it is legitimate sourced or not. maybe you can query with Tibhar/retailer

      How does it play? Have you used ELS before? If it feels like a different rubber, then worry about it. But if it feels like when you have played with ELS before, then, that doesn't really matter and won't impact your ability to play with it.

      Thanks for your replies, I'm not a pro player but I played it and it seems to be normal, so I think it is just a bug from the machines.

      I just noticed what you wanted to show at first time, and yes it is weird comparing with the rubbers i have it has to have a little more space between the edge below, but i personally buy my stuff in tabletennis11.com ( in Estonia ) they only sell original from the manufacturer to them , from them to us.

      IMO, I don't think it's a problem at all. If you've glued DHS Hurricane before you'll notice if you put the words in the center, the rubber itself will be off center, i.e. if you cut the rubber like that, one side the leftover rubber will be a lot thinner than the other. So I'd say if Tibhar makes their rubber like that as well, you might see this happening. But as mentioned above, this doesn't affect the feel at all, manufacturers put those words on there because you're not supposed to be hitting the balls with that part if you're doing it right.
