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.
Accordingly, what is more important blade or rubber?
Post subject: Re: Whats more important, Rubber or Blade? The rubber is vastly more important. I mean you could go from long pips to T05 inverted. That’s a dramatic difference, it changes how you play entirely.
Also to know is, 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.
What is the difference between red and black rubber in table tennis?
For tacky (sticky) table tennis rubbers, the difference quite noticeable. For more speed and less sensitivity to incoming spin, choose RED. For higher grip / tack choose the black rubber.

There is no hard rule to how thick the rubber topsheet is (1.4mm to 1.7mm are common thicknesses for topsheets), so sponges labeled as Maximum are produced by the manufacturer to be as thick as they can while still staying under 4.00mm, usually they include a large enough margin of error to counteract the thickness of …
