If you are buying just a table tennis blade, you will need to buy and fit two table tennis rubbers to your new blade prior to use. These are fitted using a suitable glue and are then cut to size. There are lots of good You Tube videos with instructions on how to do this. Buying the blade and rubbers separately gives you the best flexibility to create a bat that best suits your playing style and personal requirements.
Table tennis bat rubbers have a ‘shelf life’ of about 18 months. Beware of buying bats or rubbers where the rubber may be so old that it has deteriorated: this can be the case with paddles and rubbers kept on display in sports stores or when making a second hand purchase. As the rubber deteriorates it loses grip (tackiness) – grip is essential to put spin on the ball, which is crucial to playing modern table tennis.
To help preserve your Palio bat condition we recommend you keep your bat in a bag and store it out of direct sunlight and away from sources of heat.
Do not touch the rubber surface because you will transfer sweat and oil from your fingers.
To help maintain performance, occasionally gently clean the rubbers with water or use a specialist bat cleaning fluid
Table tennis rubbers are glued onto the blade and can peel off at the edges if the bat catches the table, particularly if the bat edge is pushed along the surface of the table. Be careful during play!
With all table tennis rubbers, the rubber condition will slowly deteriorate over time and will lose tackiness. The more you play the quicker your bat rubber will wear out! Luckily, the rubbers can be replaced when required.
Any new bat, blade or rubber will take a little getting used to at first.
Please note damage to your table tennis blade which might reasonably result from normal wear and tear is NOT considered a fault, this includes chipped or worn wood.
