Hi. Can someone please let me know how long I should let the new butterfly pro chack 2 glue dry for before applying the rubber to my blade once I have put a coat of the glue on to my rubber and blade?

All water based glues should dry within 15 minutes more or less (depending on how thick you apply them). It will become clear and colorless, and you can tell by tapping your finger on it, if it does not leave your finger print, then it's good to put the rubber on the blade. (you need to apply a layer of glue to the blade also)

This would be correct if OP wasn't asking about butterfly Free Chack Pro 2. However, Free Chack Pro 2 doesn't dry clear, it stays white, I guess if you really stare at it, it could be opaque, but definitely not clear. Though the drying time you said is still correct for Free Chack Pro 2, it dries in about 15 minutes or so. Apart from it not drying clear which is a little weird for first time users, I have to say it is the best glue I've used so far, easiest to apply (once you learnt how much to use) and peel.

I don't let it dry at all. My reasoning being it spreads better when wet. Never had a problem.

Dry time also depends on humidity and room temperature, at more humid and cold conditions it can sometimes take 30-40 minutes until it gets clear

Some glue don’t dry clear?
Do you know why this is? I’m quite confused🤔

Exactly, I had the same experience. Recently a friend had to wait an hour for glue to dry.
I was wandering if the glue was diluted maybe.

That had to be some really low temps lol

Not really, but it has to do with their formula and process of production 🤣

Some players even leave for 12+ hours to dry before sticking!!!!! not sure if they apply to blade only and leave before sticking a freshly glued and dried sheet of rubber to the blade hours later???!!!!

Well, that’s another way of doing it, I do that too now since I use boosters. Turn on the tv, first layer of glue, sit back and relax for a bit, then repeat after one or two YouTube videos. Then booster. The next night , everything will be ready to go.

Generally fifteen minutes is enough, you need to observe whether the glue is completely transparent

I usually apply my booster, which is my baby son's Johnson's baby oil, on my rubber right before going to bed.😂
