Hey,

I will glue on new rubbers soon, earlier I used Butterfly Free Chack and Donic Vario Clean.
But now I haven't got any glue. Thanks for answers :)

Fine Zip i can definetely recommend​.
well for boosting because with 2-3 layers you can easily remove it later with a single ripp of.
But i haven't much experience with anything else, though..

I have been mostly been using Butterfly Free Chack, and today I just tried Free Chack Pro. I am satisfied with both of them, they are easy to apply. Free Chack is easy to remove too. I have not tried removal of the Pro variant yet. Not much difference between them as far as I can see. Free Chack Pro is maybe slightly thicker.

I have used Nittaku Fine Zip before, but found it a bit difficult to apply without getting lumps when spreading out the glue. I guess all glues will give you lumps if you use too much time during application, but Finezip was imho difficult to deal with.

Yeah, you need to work fast and accurate that's right, or you'll have to start over again. Practice makes perfect

I use BTY Free Chack II (2 layers on the rubber, 1 layer on the blade) and like it. The first type of Free Chack wasn't very good, didn't stick well.

I've experienced the same difficulties with Nittaku Fine Zip, mostly because I'm not used to it, it's thicker and dries quicker. I think Free Chack II is just a little bit easier to use as it's thinner but it does take longer to dry. My friend waters down his Fine Zip with a few drops of water... that seems to do the trick.

Interesting question, I use Tibhar VS top glue. I only know it was better than a Falco I bought, but I think is interesting because do you think this affects the performance of the equipment? In new rubbers I apply 2 layers on the sponge and 1 layer on the Blade, however is not easy to remove, I have to be very careful to removed from the sponge using and old top sheet to peel it off. I think I will try revolution no. 3 medium viscosity, looks easier to remove but I never thought if it would affect performance or no.

It does, just like the glues used by the blade manufacturers between plies. How many layers of glue matters too, pros are known to use 15-20 layers of glue on rubbers...

That was speedglue days. Now a days if you put 20 layers of wbg your rubber gets way too heavy and thick.

Used Andro Turbo Fix, now using Donic Vario Clean... not much of a difference between them IMO, Donic is a bit thicker and easier to apply, overall both are fine for me... Have some experience with some Butterfly glues before and it was negative, it was very hard to remove this glue from the rubber without damage to the sponge, with andro turbo fix and donic vario clean this process much easier and cleaner... only IMHO...

Same here.
I didn't like the butterfly.
Donic Vario Clean so far works well.

Using Andro Turbo Fix as well as Donic Vario Clean. Good bonding, straightforward to apply if you work swiftly and cleanly, easy to remove.

I use Donic Formula First. Good glue, but the applicator didn't last...

What do you think about PVA glue if it's on cheap rubber that will only be used for practice

No idea about PVA glues, but without other obvious consideration you have to take into account what will happen when you will want to chance the cheap rubber into a new one. Will you be able to peel it?

For blades with softer outer, like hinoki, I use Xiom i-Bond, which is very thin.
For blades with hard outer I use Tibhar Clue, which is thicker.

I've been using free chack forever and it does the job
