Hi! My JPen blade's cork got a bit dark due to intense use and time. Would you recommend using sand paper to "light it up"?

Or any other suggestions?

Thank you!!

You could try gently brushing it with some toothpaste. This works very well on handles that have gone dark, so it might work on cork as well.

I never have that kind of problem because I seal (also) the cork until I can see some shine on it. I have no slipping problem on the grip during play. You can try it after you have removed the stain. If you leave it as it is, it will grow darker and darker.

Thank you for the answers!

I've decided to replace the cork sheets and handle. I saw that Table Tennis Store (http://www.tabletennisstore.us/search.a ... hTerm=cork) sells the replacement parts.

Does anyone have experience in replacing these items? Is it easy to remove the old one? What kind of glue should I use?
