My j-pen has no cork on the back side.
So I bought a cork sheet for saxophone or flute... 15 x 10 cm on aliexpress.
I would like to know if it is the same as the cork of the j-pen racket, because it feels different to the touch, a little bit smoother and harder.
And how do I glue it, do I use the wood glue?
Thank you very much!

That's 6 inches by 4 inches - seems a little small. You won't be able to cover the entire back side of the blade but that's usually not what's done anyway.

Seems to be 2mm thick (which seems a little too thick). It's monolithic cork, not granular (like the stuff you get from Daiso), which is what you want, actually. Another source of cork would be an auto-parts store (they use it for making gaskets).

What to use to glue it on? Perhaps wood glue (Titebond, etc.)? Probably a thin layer on the cork, then clamp in place.

Thanks!
I already bought this: https://es.aliexpress.com/item/10050016 ... 63c0nx2Qx7
and i don't need to cover all of it, but only a part of it.
I'm thinking of mixing the wood glue with water to make it lighter.

Ah.. I'd get something on the thin side (1 or 1.2mm). You could also apply the wood glue to both surfaces, allow to dry and then use a hot iron to apply the cork. This would work with the thinner sheets. If larger sheets were available this might be an interesting material to use for blade-making, as the center ply (like the old 729 Bomb). Come to think of it.. a glue sheet might work. One of the stronger Chinese ones rather than the expensive European ones that are meant to allow easy rubber removal.
