I believe the cork sheet is there to save weight on the blade ??? And also help attach a black colored sticker or red sticker as per ITTF rules or something ?

Also I doubt you can apply any water-based glue on the cork since it is too porous maybe ? From what I read on the internet, it should be possible to remove the cork layer with care and patience to reveal the other side of the J-pen blade. Hopefully there shouldn't be any defects or irregularities on the surface and you can smooth, varnish, lightly sand it to prep it for attaching a rubber on there.

But J-pen blades tend towards the heavy side, 90g+ ? So RPB is gonna be a killer on your wrist unless you are super-strong :lol:

No, the cork isn't there "to save weight".... :lol: It's there for grip and comfort. It was a staple feature of Japanese style penhold blades, and these blades were never meant to be used for RPB. Way too heavy for starters. In the old days there would be this semicircle of thin cork, and the rest would be bare wood.. they didn't even bother coloring it, and it was perfectly legal to strike the ball with the bare wood. Which a lot of people did, to confuse their opponents. Some older guys still do this, too. Then came the two color rule sometime in the early 80s.. This gave rise to painting the backs of the blades, and to paint sheets. It became illegal to hit the ball with anything other than rubber, but still the racket had to have a red side and a black side, go figure. Which is why some people put OX long pips on the back (you don't get NEARLY as much spin reversal, though). For some years Butterfly even made a special rubber called "Pecular" with a curved ID strip just to fit this kind of blade.

There's a photo of it here. It's not exactly a backhand rubber, either. More of a change-up rubber.

I'm getting my BTY Jpen ready for RPB.
I scratched the cork off using a flat tip screwdriver and am now looking for some thinner to remove the paint at the back.
Will be updating soon. :)

Forget the paint... Just go over the back lightly with some fine sandpaper (maybe 320 grit), carefully clean off the dust and then apply the rubber. Doesn't matter if the paint is still there. Do use a flat sanding block, don't do it with your fingers. Flat screwdriver??? :lol:

Yes I'm with iskandar taib on this, don't use a screw driver as you'll just damage it, use a sanding block, and don't bother with paint.

WHat are you going to put on the back?

729 Sky Wing is nice and light... :lol: Or 868. Though I did get one really porky sheet the other day. I must admit, this talk of butchery of perfectly good, probably quite expensive classic Japanese penhold blades just to experiment with RPB is somewhat disturbing to me... If you want RPB there's all sorts of modern Chinese and European blades just made for RPB that are available.

Too late. I already took off most of the cork I need.
I don't have anything in mind right now. I'll just ask a buddy of mine for his old sheets and see what works.

Probably a classic JP/Euro sheet since the wood on its own is a rocket already.
