      rubber thickness

      To ensure that players’ equipment is abiding by the rules, the ITTF is piloting a project called: “Thickness measurement on dismantled rubbers”.

      The pilot project, which started at the ITTF Challenge Croatia Open this week, aims to ensure that the rubbers from professional table tennis players, used by ITTF tournaments, are following the rules: < 4.00 mm.

      4.00 mm ???????? two rubbers or only one ????

      That's just for the sponge, the topsheet can be another 1.7 and the glue takes space too so you need some margin.

      Rubber + sponge. If no sponge is used, maximum allowed rubber thickness is 2mm.

      There were 2.6mm rubbers in the 38mm era like tibhar maks and innova ultra light from stiga but they have very thin tops.
