    Do 40 hardness rubbers weight more than 39/38?

    Does a harder rubber (such as H3N in 40 degree) weigh more than the same rubber in 39/38 degree?

    In grams, how much of a difference is it?

    It should, soft rubbers generally have bigger air (or whatever their filled with) pockets than hard rubbers.
    Here is a page with data that people have submitted: Rubber Sheet Mass and Size Database - Reviews, articles and Guide on Table Tennis - Table Tennis Reviews (tabletennis-reviews.com)

    There is a difference in weight, but it is so minimal - even glue will outweigh the rubber weight difference (1 deg is so little....)

    Unless it’s H3. But of course in that case DHS’s horrible quality control takes over and a 39 degree weighs more than a 41
