Hi guys, I just got a new blade, and have a rubber on one side, while the other side doesn't have the rubber on as the store ran out of the particular rubber I want for backhand. I played for 2 hours and I realise that the sweat from my fingers on the back of the blade would be getting into the wood of the blade (penhold) as I don't have any rubber on top of the wood layer. Will it damage my new blade? Is it ok to play the blade with just one rubber without damaging the blade?
The sweat won’t effect the blade noticeably so don’t worry about it. Even hitting the ball with the wood won’t damage it. However the weight and balance will be very different so it is best to get some rubber on the backhand side as soon as you can.
