There are four common types of table tennis rubbers: short pips, long pips, antispin, and inverted. The thickness and density of the sponge layer underneath also affects how the rubber will handle the ball.
Correspondingly, how long does a table tennis rubber last?
Manufacturer’s estimate the ‘lifetime’ of a rubber to be 50 – 90 playing hours, but don’t panic! Most competitive players change their reverse or long pimple rubber within 12 months. Short pimples or anti spin rubbers last longer.
Subsequently, what is pimpled rubber?
Pimple table tennis rubbers are rubbers with pimples on the outside of the surface. These rubbers grip the ball differently, and more suited to manipulating your opponent’s spin, rather than spinning the ball. Inverted rubbers (smooth on the outside) are generally better for generating spin.
How rubber sheet helps or affect table tennis?
Depending on the thickness and density/hardness of the top sheet and sponge, together they contribute to the overall spin, speed and control of the ball.

The cheapest way to keep your bat clean is to use a little bit of water and some kitchen paper or a cloth and wipe the surface clean. This only takes a minute and the rubber will dry very quickly. Don’t use too much water, as you will end up soaking the rubbers and even the blade, which is not a good idea.
