Calling all Stiga Mantra users:

I recently bought a bat (Stiga NCT Hybrid Wood) with two sheets of Mantra S on it. The forehand side got beat up rather quickly. I wanted a slightly harder sponge on my forehand anyway, so I ordered a sheet of Mantra M and saved the old sheet of Mantra S to use as a backhand rubber later. Well, the Mantra M has been on my racket less than a month and it is already coming apart in chunks at the edges of my bat. I haven't had this problem with other rubbers.

In your experience, is the Stiga Mantra rubber particularly fragile?

Mine has been 'okay', and my team mate's has crumbled quite a lot over a year. Seems slightly less tough than some other rubbers I've used, but not terrible.
