Directly below is a general guide to assembling table tennis rubber to a table tennis blade video. Further down is a professional’s guide, Timo Boll’s video “How I glue”.
Tilt the Free Chack tube very slightly and apply the glue to the whole surface of the sponge and the blade.
The glue should be spread evenly over the whole surface with the clip sponge. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary that the glue is applied evenly and not smeared in a haphazard fashion; it is important the layer of glue is as thin as possible.
After having applied the FREE CHACK to both sponge and blade, allow to dry for at least 20 minutes until the surfaces become transparent.
Attach the rubber to the blade by applying equal pressure to the whole surface using your hand. Do not use a roller.
Using sturdy, sharp scissors, cut sheet starting at right side with sponge facing up. For an even cut, use the side of the blade as a guide, cutting with the scissors flush against the blade’s edge.
To avoid losing speed and shrinking the rubber; refrain from:
- Using a roller to affix the rubber.
- Peeling off a glued rubber and gluing again.
- Laying two rubbers on each other.
