donic blue contact glue is pretty viscous
the most viscous glue i know of

If you use donic blue contact make sure to seal your blade first. the bond is strong enough to splinter the blade as you remove the rubber later.

I think it was Baal who told me to stay away from this glue because it's too strong.

I'm using the first BTY Free Chack and it works fine.

free chack is also one known to splinter a blade if you're not too careful. If you want a viscous glue I'd recommend nittaku finezip but it's also expensive. sealing a blade is always a way to play it more safe.

How does it come that you are searching for the most viscous glue? I think it's harder to get a good smooth layer when the glue is to viscous.

I dont know about which glue is the most viscous but nittaku finezip is probably the best glue I've yet to use

I have used Paddle Palace EZ Pro glue which is fairly non viscous so it smooths easily and evenly and REevolution #3 from www.ttrevolution which can be purchased in 1 of 3 types but I use the thinner since I did splinter a low quality blade when I peeled off the rubber after using the thicker glue. I now seal my blades with lacquer if I have doubts as it sucks to destroy a blade because I was too lazy to seal it.

IMO Revolution No.3 and Nittaku Finezip are the best glues. Finezip is hard to get here and expensive so I've just glued only one rubber with a teammate's glue, but heard only good things about it. Revolution is really good. Works well with boosters/oil and you can vary the rubber's speed with using more layers. And easy to peel off.

revolution #3 and paddle palace glue are definitely more latex-style than thick. For some rubbers/blades it can take up to 3 or 4 layers of the stuff to get the rubber to stick well. But removing the glue later is extremely easy and makes the process of removal much better.

I've heard good stuff about Revolution #3 as well. My question is: If you apply 3-4 layers for a good seal, doesn't it increase the overall weight of your setup?

I like using lots of layers of glue. The more the merrier. More glue makes the sponge a little more responsive. I got the idea when I heard that the CNT guys use 8-16 layers of glue. I don't know if it is true. But I like enough glue so the glue is fairly thick.

But hey, my setup weighs something like 220 grams. What's the big deal if I add an extra gram or two of glue. [emoji2]

I personally like Donic Vario Clean because it is more like the old rubber cement than anything else I have tried. But I have heard so many good things about Revolution #3 glue that one day I will have to try it.

Vario clean is excellent if you only stick your rubber once and use it until it dies and then throws it away. You don't need to use a lot of glue of a strong bond

Well, I also find that I have been able to pull rubbers off and slap them on other blades because the glue stays a little stick. And since I don't care about removing old glue, and I am okay with simply adding more glue if I need to, because I am okay with adding weight, it still works if you take your rubbers off one blade and put them on another. I'm way to lazy to remove old glue before putting new glue on. The fact that I can press the rubbers onto a different blade without changing the glue is part of why I like Vario Clean. [emoji2]

Revolution #3 is just to weak for me. Not good for OX pips at all. I find Yasaka Norisuke san (who's that?) very good - strong, but not too strong :)

That is the reason i switched to paddle palace glue hahaha. I always peel my glue before re-gluing and vario clean is a pain in the butt to remove

100000% agree with donic vario clean, it's my second choice after nittaku finezip and to be honest I think they're the same darn glue. I just get finezip because it's more expensive and my EJ brain tells me more expensive is better. plus from tt11 I get a giant finezip around 90$ that lasted through 30-40 glue jobs.

I make cheap paddles, good for learning for newbies at our club and have glued and cut countless setups. I also offer the service of gluing rubber on for players at my club for 5$ and if they find ANY imperfection in the glue job or cut, I'll make it free for them. I've made my money back on my glue and more.

Nittaku finezip is so great and thick in quality that I've never needed more than 1 layer on the rubber and 1 layer on the blade.




Here's my guide to choosing your glue

If your rubber has a sponge that is more porous, for example fx-p, bluefire series rubbers, tenergy, mx-p, rasant grip (off the top of my head). A thick, viscus glue is best because it wont sink into the pores of the rubber and will more easily create a smooth layer of glue with no variation throughout the glue job.

If you use something with a sponge that's not as porous though, (off the top of my head I'm thinking rakza series, and mark V) a less viscus, more latex based glue like revolution #3 would be better.

6 layer of Revolution give some catapult to tacky, dead sponged rubbers, so there can be some truth about that CNT uses lots of layers.

They use a haifu variant which makes sense to use a lot of layers. It's pretty thin in comparison to the more viscus rubbers.

Sorry, you mean with Vario Clean you can take a rubber from one blade and put in another without actually putting more glue?

Yep. For me it has stayed sticky most of the time. :) I press it on to the next blade and it works fine. :) Like I used to be able to do with the old glue. :) I think it is because it is really a Non VOC rubber glue rather than a latex or silicon glue. The silicon glues, you can pull the glue off in one piece. So it is no hassle to pull off. But since I don't care about pulling the glue off and would rather not glue, and glue again, that has worked for me with Vario Clean.

But looking at Revolution #3, that glue does look like it is a good glue to me.

wow so many layers of glue carl O.O
I heard that some of the cheap runny glues are really bad as the sponge soaks it up so when it dries later it ruins the sponge characteristics.
Apparently its fine for the more viscous glues though.

I've really tried a few, but I would recommend the Revolution3 as well. Meanwhile i'm using normal viscousity 'cause it comes off the sponge quite easy. 4 - 6 layers on the rubber 2 on the blade should be enough. Some sponges definitely need more than 2 layers to stick well. If you want a real thick glue you could go for the Revolution3 high viscousity, but most people I know, that think the normal viscousity is too 'thin' use the medium viscousity. The high viscousity ain't easy to handle and doesn't come off the sponge as easy as the other two variations.
