When do you, choppers, change your old sheet? after losing grippiness?

When do you , blockers, change your old sheet? after pips start falling off? or losing grippiness in some cases?

How long is good durability considered ?

I have two bats that I try to keep at similar wear levels. The last time I replaced the pimples was after 8 months, so like 4 months if I had used only one bat.

That said, I'm starting to prefer fresh Curl so I will be changing more frequently in the future. Here are some posts on how Curl P1V wears over time https://ooakforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=38601&start=15

It means P1V with less friction is much worse.I try to put on some rejuvenator after each session .

Blockers will change the pips much ,much later as less friction will benefit them.

Yeah it depends on your technique and what you prefer. For countering and chopping with a full stroke and thin contact friction is good. But for serve return, aggressive pushes/side swipes and more passive reversal you probably want less friction. Similar to the tradeoffs you make between thicker and thinner sponges.

A problem with getting used to or relying on worn pimples is that when you eventually need to change the pimples there is a big difference to get used to the new sheet.

I play with Dornenglanz for an all round style of game, using LP for hitting, bumping, rolls/lifts, active blocking and chopping. I find Dornenglanz requires about 20 hours of court time to effectively break it in and overall it lasts for about 2 months before the pips start falling out.

I play a close-to-the-table blocking aggressive pushing game using D-Techs OX.
In general, I never change my rubber. The pips are usually fine.

You are very right, Geodor.D.techs is expensive but you can play with it at least for a year straight.

BEWARE OF BROKEN PIMPLES.
Apparent lack of pimples is the foremost reason that the rubber in question may be banned from play either by umpire or upon the protest from the opposite player.

As far as I know, broken pimples on the edge of the blade are allowed.Therefore , Igor's observations are just jokes to tease LP users once again.

Innacuracy seems to be Igor's mantra. :lol:
