Rubber Change

Post by RaymondWu on Tue Jan 06, 2009 11:39 pm

I am planning on replacing my rubbers with some new hurricanes because my current ones are not tacky anymore. However, I am not quite sure on how i am going to rip my current rubber off my blade. My dad told me that i have to warm it near a stove but i jsut want to hear some ideas.

uhh i never heard anything about warming it near a stove haha. if your rubbers were glued on with any kind of rubber cement type glue, it'll come right off. you should peel it in a sideways motion. either from left to right or right to left. i could show you at club tomorrow if that description isn't clear enough. is this your first time gluing up your rubbers yourself?

If you see spots in your rubber where the glue under is already gone and you can take a small piece of the rubber off, just remove it gently. Also acetone/nail polish remover can be used.

Use acetone/nail polish remover on the side and it will start to come off. You should be able to take off the rubber anyway if it has been on your racket for a while.

your blade is already sealed so it should be easy to remove. Using acetone might destroy the seal. I'm thinking of sealing the blade I will be ordering. It's only 2.50 but it adds up to 8 grams to your blade.

Acetone does not destroy the blade.

I meant the seal, not the blade.
