I know that for a long time speed glue is banned, however i play on a level nowhere near where this is a problem. Currently in my closet i have 2 bottles of glue that look like speed glue but are VOC-free. This is a transparent liquid that needs to be brushed out with a brush. Nowadays when i look up videos of glueing bats i see people use water based glues that are white and become transparent when dry. I have to say the white water based glue looks so easy to use, and also looks like its glued more firmly.
My question is which is better for glueing. Should i throw away my speed-glue-like-glue and go with the newer water based glue or stick with the old. As an added note i usually boost my rubbers using falco long, in case that changes the outcome.

I recently switched to Revolution 3 after seeing how easily a club mate was able to remove it from the rubber. No complaints so far. In the past I have used a couple of different Butterfly glues, Nittaku Finezip, Tearmender plus other VOC free latex glues.

+1 Revolution 3.0 but Nittaku Finezip is also very good but more expensive.

Another REvolution No. 3 user here. Find it works very well with a wide range of sponges and most importantly, doesn't coagulate easily in cold weather. I've tried LIDU water-based glue as well and I like the bond it gives but I find it lower quality due to the relative ease of clumping

Nittaku Finezip works very well. It takes one or two tries to figure out the correct amount to use. After that, no more troubles. Costs a lot more than I’d like.

I find DHS No.15 Water Base Glue VOC FREE to be pretty good.

Pricing wise is definitely worth it.

Drawbacks, i find that it is easier to do this perfectly during cooler days or at night.

Finezip is great too when you have a new one but you do have to capped this properly, the glue inside tends to harder pretty easily vs the rest of the water based glues.
