Sounds serious buddy. But you didn't tell us whether it's a new or old rubber. If it's old, I guess it's because the rubber has expended slightly in the middle. So when firsts glued on, there were no bubble. But after a while, it comes away from the blade, hence creating the bubble. Do you mind telling us what rubber is it?

I know the bubble can be annoying. Usually, tournaments officials won't allow you to use that blade. I don't know buddy. Water base glue do leave residue on the rubbers and blades. You must remove all before applying a new layer. Ask Carl Horowitz, you can PM him. His pretty good at these sort of things.

If it is a latex based glue you should be able to peel it all the way. Typically if there are air bubbles you should try regluing because otherwise the glue won't ever hold tightly. I don't know if they have this in belgium, but you should get Tear Mender. It's a great latex glue and is a bunch cheaper than other glues. Otherwise the best stuff is Rubber Cement. Basically Rubber Cement is only illegal with the VOC's in it, but if you leave your rubber out instead of in its case the VOC's evaporate and aren't detectable. Giving you a tournament ready paddle.

ARTENGO is the WORST EVER water based glue. I mean really, it's not glue it's construction cement (or "Super Glue 3"). It ruins both blades and sponges when u try to remove it. I got one tube, tried it twice I guess & never touched it again. It sticks SO much that the glue residues (a whole layer actually) on the blade were impossible to remove, I had to use half bottle of acetone

There is NO point of using this glue, unless you want to stick both rubbers and blade for life

Avoid artengo products as much as possible. I generally buy only their TT shorts which are like 10$.
I got their Artengo 880-0 penhold blade and the rubber was dead with 10hours of practice.
