Hi kjanko (http://www.tabletennisdaily.co.uk/forum/member.php?9360-kjanko) ,
thanks for replying.
At the photo the rubber doesnt have booster yet,i was preparing the stuff to do so.
I just did one thin layer of it right now and im waiting for it to dry,then im going to apply another layer.
What do you think of ?

If you are boosting, you will need to do several layers and allow the stuff to sit there a day or so before attempting to glue it.

For a rubber you are familiar with, tuning will give you noticeable jump in spin and some speed, but not nearly that of a properly speed glued rubber, yet still a noticeable improvement over an un-glued rubber.

Nice to know that :)
I have just layed the 2nd layer of falco long booster(2mnts ago),and it didnt curl yet.
Lets see how it goes.
Im thinking to add a maximum of 3 layers.
What do you think?
Thanks btw

After 3h30 of applying the 3th layer,its started curving.
Falco recommended 3 layers on chinese rubbers,to get optimal performance.
Would you think i should put more layers?
thanks

Don't put any more layers, this will be enough because if you put too much rubber could go over 4 mm and it would be illegal, and your sponge could separate from topsheet, be careful

Looks like a decent curve :p If you are trying booster for the first time I'd say just try it now with 3 layers, I think u will notice the difference. By applying more layers u risk damaging the rubber. Make sure to let the rubber flat out alot before applying it onto the blade, and when u have glued it to the blade place a stack of books or something similar on it for a day or more. Else ur edges will start curling and get loose from the blade.

when i used Falco long boost i would get my rubbers to curl like Swiss rolls( including DHS rubbers) .. for quicker affect you could try the glass method. apply booster on sponge then sponge down on a glass surface and some weight on top.. this helps with the first few layers as they get to soak in deeper. after that u should have a decent curl. almost swiss from there you can apply in open air i guess of keep using glass method.. one thing though once you go Swiss it will take a good few days to comedown for you to be even thinking of gluing it to a blade... but liek some said you dont want too much straight away.

id leave it a t 3 for now play with it for like 3 weeks then if you think you can handle more add another layer or two thin ones and play for another 3 weeks.

I saw something that reported that, with Falco Tempo Long Boost, the dome takes a long time to appear, sometimes several hours. But 2 or 3 layers should be enough. Has it begun to dome up yet?

Thanks for all replies
The rubber has domed a bit more after several hours(still with 3 layers only)
I will let the dome go down,i think the curling is pretty decent for the 1st time using booster.
Waiting for the last results :)

Kenat, you done did good 3 ought to do the trick, but next time around, experiment with some old useless rubbers and get the feel for it.

The other danger of over-doing the boost thing is you might make the sponge way too soft and loose proper feel. That would be tragic.
